Hi, Everybody.

I am very excited about this new weeebsite. My friend Jesse has redesigned it. He lives in Brooklyn, and I live in San Diego. We met up in Austin and had a pow wow, and this is what we came up with. I will now be able to give you updates on news and spiders and stuff. I have decided to embrace technology with all the strength in my yogafied arms.

My last trip to Texas was fruitful. I have finally gotten distribution for my new record (I still call them records). My showcase at SXSW was a fun one. I am so excited to drop some new bomb tracks on your phat ass (Wait. I didn't mean you look fat...See, the kids these days are using these expre....oh, nevermind).

In any case, new music is coming your way via my own 98 pounder records, making me that much happier. I get complete creative control. So now if I don't like what i do, I can sue myself. I can't wait to start litigating. I will kick my own ass all the way down to Chinatown.

In other news, I'm starting to worry about this new disease called SARS. In turn, I have decided to stop breathing. Who's with me?

The Padres are 6 in 7. I predict we will go undefeated the rest of the season. I am glad the season has started. It just feels better.

Today I'm off to see the doctor for my physical. That means he's gonna put his finger in the place where I go to the bathroom. Yikes! I had a mole taken off my back which turned out to be a good guy, not a cancerous guy, so I'm thankful to my personal lord and savior, Jesus Christ, that I can now get back to my yoga routine where I worship Allah, Buddah and Jesus Christ simultaneously. When I do, they all start having a holy war inside my head where they all keep saying, "I'M the boss! No, I'M the boss!"
I'll tell you who's the boss. Tony Danza, that's who! In fact, I'm going to start making Tony Danza T-shirts and send them over to everyone in the Middle East, just so they know exactly who the boss is.

(Incidentally, for those of you still wondering, yes the mole was chewy and really didn't taste so bad.)

Send an email if you like. Comments and suggestions are welcome. Or just wishes of peace and prosperity.
Just hit the page that says contact-a-rooni.

Thanks so much for all of your support over the years. I'll be updating the photos regularly and giving you all the news that?s fit to print.

Sincerely yours,

Steven Joseph Joshua Poltz

Steve, it's good to hear that you are taking care of yourself, even if it does involve an intimate moment with Mr. Doctor! Hey, I'm looking forward to hearing your new stuff, I'm sure it will be...tight, I don't usually use the word tight to describe things I want to refer to as cool, but hey, i'm just tryin to keep it real, know what i'm sayin? What was I saying anyway? I don't know but keep up the good work, and keep us all informed! Later Disco.......

So the Padres are 6 in 7?! Hahahahahah!
Apparently they miss you Steve...
It's pretty bad when the lowly Tigers are ahead of you.
