If you can do a live broadcast to D.J. in the UK I will for sure be there. God I miss D.J. and M.


I'm hearing a rumor the local govt. is banning dance parties during the spring scream weekend....any truth?
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

I see that there are a bunch planned, but who knows with the recent things going down in Taichung and now in Shi-Da. I can guarantee that none of that will have any effect on the true Spring Scream. And we may be doing some live broadcasts from Spring scream, so look out.

I can somehow imagine a Taiwanese Kevin Bacon but the image of a Taiwanese John Lithgow is somehow elusive.

Anyone care to explain what a "Spring Scream" is? My guess is Taiwan's version of Halloween Horror Nights...

Spring scream is a rock festival in Kending with a lot of parties. I thought about going but I'll pass again this year. what are some of the other smaller festivals? That's more my style. I read about something in Dulan/Taidong.

Footloose the movie, I think.

Anyway, as of now, the promoters down in Kending have managed to sway the local authorities that things are ok. but that situation is very fluid.

And Rock-a-fella...Spring Scream is Taiwan's largest outdoor music festival with 8 stages, 200 bands, and 35 djs over the tomb sweeping holiday at the Lighthouse in Kending.

Since so many people go down to the dirty south, there are tons of parties everywhere that weekend.

Thank you google, for being able to reveal a connection for almost anything, except why anyone would be able to recall this connection...
