Anal - izing

Hello. I'm Keex from PRE, PRE toured with Mae Shi in West Coast recently, and I was invited to write stuff on this blog,.
I guess it's pretty boring to write about how our tour was. So I'm gonna write about each characters of Mae Shi members.

Jacob (Drums)
Jacob loves junk food, whenever we stop at a gas station, he buys stuff like above. His staple food in the van is the 'Trail Mix' those salty nuts and m&m's in. We don't have it in England, I never thought salty m&m's were gonna be tasty but it works really well! He got me into those crappy food on the tour.. He also showed me how to make your own hot dogs from you know those hot dogs rolling round and round on the thing in Love's. He said "take a piece of hot dog bun and stick a hot dog inside!" I was quite impressed that you do it yourself and pay at counter.
He's a wizard of mac technology, he's always on his i phone. He is the only Mae Shi member who doesn't drive, but he's always on the case of finding venues and places we need with his i phone, He's so great.
Last year when PRE toured with Mae Shi though, he was the most annoying one judged by me. I don't know why but he started to get on my nerves towards the end of the tour last time. BUT on this tour I completely changed my mind, or maybe he changed? he was super fun & super sweet. I couldn't have lived on the tour without him.

Jeff (Guitar) on the left
He is the most sensible one in the band. Like he eats sensibly. When we got fed pizzas for dinner, he ordered his pizza without cheese and ordered side salad. He never fucks up his part when he plays (that's what he says). He usually goes to bed at sensible time. BUT on the other side of him, he has a very rock n roll life or has done in the past.
Me and him were compeating and telling each other what fucked up stuff we've done before, and we got into the point that was becoming a bit too personal that we stopped telling to impress each other.
He gave me a very cool bandana which is now my favorite fashion item. Thank you Jeff.

John(Vocal/Key etc)
He is the one always looks insane at their shows. But John is the one who looks after everyone and care about everyone so well. I don't mean everyone else doesn't, but John is the one who drives the most, He is the one looks after money and sleeps in the van so that our gear don't get knicked. He's a sweet heart. Once (or twice) when I got so pissed off by my band member Kev, I was ready to give him a loads of shit, But because of what John said to me stopped shouting at Kev. Because John is very forgiving and warm. He's also really fun to hang out with. He picks up and respond to whatever the fuck I do. When I shouted outside at noone from inside the van "TACOS!", He was the only one repeated after me "TACOS!", I was secretly touched then....

Bill(Bass) on the right
He's the most chilled one in the band in the best way. His driving is sometimes a bit wobbly. He didn't eat much on the tour, because he didn't have much money. Sometimes he didn't eat anything till when we got fed in the evening by the venue we played at. He made me think I should do the same. We don't actually need to eat as much as we think, we were sitting in the van most of the times, we didn't use much energy. We eat because we are bored sometimes.
American food are so bad and quantity is so huge. He made me realise that it's so unnesesary to eat 3 times a day and we can live with little money and still have lots of fun.

I miss you all so much. We are family now, aren't we?

Lots of Love
