I think this is very important for the share holders because it shows that Casavant might know something and this is a way to show share holders not to sell because their are diamonds and in three years now two that the share price will be way over the current value and the 600 million shares he owns are being held which means he cannot sell to scam us.

INFORMATION STATEMENT To the Holders of Common Stock:
The purpose of this Information Statement is to notify you that the holders of shares representing a majority of the Common Stock of Rascals International, Inc., have given their written consent to a resolution adopted by the Board of Directors of Rascals to amend the certificate of incorporation of Rascals so as to (1) change the name of the company to "Headliners Entertainment Group, Inc." and (2) increase the authorized number of common shares to 500,000,000. We anticipate that this Information Statement will be mailed on May 4, 2004 to shareholders of record. On or after May 25, 2004, the amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation will be filed with the Delaware Secretary of State and become effective.
Delaware corporation law permits holders of a majority of the voting power to take shareholder action by written consent. Accordingly, Rascals will not hold a meeting of its shareholders to consider or vote upon the proposed amendment to Rascals' certificate of incorporation.
WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU FOR A PROXY. YOU ARE REQUESTED NOT TO SEND US A PROXY. May 4, 2004 EDUARDO RODRIGUEZ, President
VOTING SECURITIES AND PRINCIPAL SHAREHOLDERS We determined the shareholders of record for purposes of this shareholder action at the close of business on March 29, 2004 (the "Record Date"). On the Record Date, 100,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001, were authorized. Each share of common stock is entitled to one vote. On the Record Date, there were 15,179,366 shares of common stock issued, outstanding and entitled to vote.
Rascals has issued only one class of equity securities: its common stock. The following table sets forth information regarding the common stock beneficially owned (i) by any person who, to our knowledge, owned beneficially more than 5% of the common stock as of March 29, 2004 (ii) by all members of Rascals' Board of Directors, and (iii) by the directors and officers of Rascals as a group. None of the persons identified below owns any securities issued by Rascals other than the common stock listed below.
Amount and Nature of Name and Address Beneficial Percentage of Beneficial Owner(1) Ownership(2) of Class ---------------------------------------------------------- Eduardo Rodriguez 3,533,404(3)(4) 23.3%
Michael Margolies 3,528,963(3)(4) 23.2%
Gary Marks 25,750 0.2%
All Officers and Directors As a Group (3 persons) 4,810,905(3)(4) 31.7% ____________________________________

The remaining 50% interest in each LLC is owned by The Margolies Family Trust. The Trustee of the Margolies Family Trust is Mr. Margolies' spouse, and the beneficiaries of the Trust are Mr. Margolies' spouse and children.
AMENDMENT OF THE CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE CORPORATION The Board of Directors of Rascals has unanimously adopted a resolution to change the name of the corporation from "Rascals International, Inc." to "Headliners Entertainment Group, Inc." The holders of shares representing a majority of Rascals outstanding common stock have given their written consent to the resolution. Under Delaware corporation law, the consent of the holders of a majority of the shares is effective as shareholders' approval. We will file the Amendment with the Secretary of State of Delaware on or after May 25, 2004, and it will become effective on the date of such filing (the "Effective Date").
The name change has been approved because the new name better represents the corporation's business plan. Until recently the corporation's business was focused exclusively on the operation of the Rascals Comedy Clubs. The corporation intends to continue that business in the future, but will also be involved in other entertainment ventures.
Certificates for the corporation's common stock that recite the name "Rascals International, Inc." will continue to represent shares in the corporation after the Effective Date. If, however, a shareholder wishes to acquire a certificate reciting the name "Headliners Entertainment roup, Inc." after the Effective Date, he may do so by surrendering his certificate to Rascals' transfer agent with a request for a replacement certificate and the appropriate stock transfer fee. Rascals' transfer agent is:
Interwest Transfer Company, Inc. 1981 East 4800 South, Suite 100 Salt Lake City, UT 84117 Telephone: (801) 272-9294 Fax: (801) 277-3147
AMENDMENT OF THE CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO INCREASE THE AUTHORIZED COMMON STOCK The Board of Directors of Rascals has unanimously adopted a resolution to increase from 100,000,000 to 500,000,000 the number of shares of common stock authorized by the Certificate of Incorporation. The holders of shares representing a majority of Rascals outstanding common stock have given their written consent to the resolution. Under Delaware corporation law, the consent of the holders of a majority of the shares is effective as shareholders' approval. We will file the Amendment with the Secretary of State of Delaware on or after May 25, 2004, and it will become effective on the date of such filing (the "Effective Date").
The purpose of the increase is to enable Rascals to enter into arrangements for the sale of its equity that are needed in order to fund the implementation of its business plan. Rascals has not entered into any agreement to issue the additional shares. However it is currently party to an Equity Line of Credit Agreement with Cornell Capital Partners, LP, pursuant to which some of the additional shares may be issued.
The Equity Line of Credit Agreement provides that during the two years commencing January 8, 2004 Rascals may demand that Cornell Capital Partners purchase shares of common stock from Rascals. The aggregate maximum that Rascals may demand from Cornell Capital Partners is $10,000,000. The number of shares that Cornell Capital Partners will purchase after a demand will be determined by dividing the dollar amount demanded by a per share price. The per share price used will be 98% of the lowest daily volume-weighted average price during the five trading days that follow the date a demand is made by Rascals.
During 2004 Rascals has sold a total of 7,955,121 shares to Cornell Capital Partners pursuant to the terms of the Equity Line of Credit Agreement, and received $650,000 for those shares. In addition, Cornell Capital Partners has made loans to Rascals, the remaining balance of which totals $850,000. The loans will be satisfied at a rate of $50,000 per week by Rascals issuing shares to Cornell Capital Partners under the terms of the Equity Line of Credit Agreement. The number of shares that will be issued in this way will depend on the market price of Rascals' common stock from time to time. At present, by agreement with Cornell Capital Partners, Rascals has reserved 52,044,879 of its authorized common shares to be available for issuance if needed to satisfy the outstanding loans.
We do not know whether any of the additional shares being authorized will be needed to satisfy Rascals' obligation to Cornell Capital Partners, nor whether Rascals will otherwise sell any of those shares to Cornell Capital Partners pursuant to the Equity Line of Credit Agreement.
No Dissenters Rights Under Delaware law, shareholders are not entitled to dissenters' rights with respect to the Reverse Split.
Got another one for you....you're going to be sorry you asked....LOL. It's DXNL (oil and gas company). I'm looking at it for a longer-term hold. Appreciate any input. Looks like it has support at .02 .... Had a couple forward splits within the last year.

American International Petroleum Announces Halifax Fund Files Lawsuit Regarding 5% Convertible Secured Debenture HOUSTON, TX -- 04/26/2004 -- American International Petroleum Corporation (OTC: AIPN) (the "Company") today stated that on April 20, 2004, Halifax Fund, L.P. ("Halifax"), holder of the Company's 5% convertible secured debenture (the "Debenture"), filed a lawsuit against the Company in the Supreme Court of the State of New York seeking a determination that the aggregate amount of the debt owed under the Debenture is approximately $13 million. The Company previously announced that it was in default on the Debenture, which matured on February 18, 2004. The outstanding principal and interest amount that was due under the Debenture is about $6.8 million. As of the date of this press release the Company has not yet been formally served with this lawsuit.
Halifax claims the Company breached the Registration Rights Agreement between the parties dated February 18, 1999, and that the outstanding principal and interest amount under the Debenture should include a cash payment in the amount of about $3,590,000 due to the Company's failure to register its securities; the Company's delisting from the Nasdaq National Market System on or about November 7, 2000; and, the Company's subsequent failure to have its stock listed on an approved market. Halifax further claims that under the Debenture, upon default, the Company is obligated to pay to Halifax 125% of the outstanding principal amount of the Debenture plus accrued interest and default payments, which Halifax claims would amount in the aggregate to about $2,600,000. The Company believes that the excess amounts claimed by Halifax may include unenforceable penalties and intends to vigorously defend against the claims.
American International Petroleum Corporation is a diversified petroleum company, which through various subsidiaries, is involved in oil and gas exploration and development in Kazakhstan, and owns a 30,000-barrel per day refinery in Lake Charles, Louisiana, which is not currently in operation.
All statements, other than statements of historical fact, included in this press release are forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements identified by the words "may," "believe" and similar expressions and statements regarding our legal position, plans and objectives. These statements reflect our current views with respect to future events, based on what we believe are reasonable assumptions. Certain factors could cause actual results to differ materially from results anticipated in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the outcome of the lawsuit filed by Halifax, and the outcome of our restructuring effort.

I don't think this is a good stock right now because I see the price falling to a cent or more because of the debt lawsuit. Once you find out what happens and the lawsuit is settled I would probably jump in then.
