  • im not russian! just wanted to drop in and say hi. also, i wanted to clear up the fact that i'm not half russian. i don't know where people get their facts (probably on the internet, where rumor might as well be fact, hahaha). but i'm half japanese and half...american, i guess. my mom's family is a mix of a ton of different things. a lot of it is european, and there's a little native american in there. but that side of my family has been in the US forever, so i just call it american to keep it simple.

  • global warming. every day i leave my house and think, "was it this hot last year?" the heat this summer here in LA and in most of the US has been unbearable. i can't remember another time when it was 105 degrees fahrenheit out here (40.5 celsius), and that's the kind of weather we've been having pretty much every day.

  • i just realized that i hadn't posted about the film "An Inconvenient Truth." for those of you who don't know, this movie talks about global warming. i went into the movie a little skeptical, wondering if i was going to be preached at by al gore, the narrator and spokesperson for the film. it's a documentary, too, so i wasn't expecting anything too exciting. as it turns out, this movie is a must-see. it's not about al gore, tree-hugging hippies, george clooney, julia roberts, george bush, or U.S. issues. this film and the movement surrounding it is about being aware of the nasty turn our world and weather seems to be taking, and what we can do to turn it around before we ruin the only pace we have to live. the information in this film is shocking. parts of our planet that i assumed were covered in ice are now melting, and the photos of these places, seen in the movie, make me nervous. the links from this past year's natural disasters to the overall direction of global warming is an issue that is worth looking at. the ten hottest years ever measured were in the last 14 years. the hottest was last year, but it doesn't take a genius to tell that this year is hotter.

  • sometimes when i do an interview, the journalist asks about political and social issues. i rarely answer those types of questions because i would rather a fan or reader get their information from the actual source, not from me. global warming is not a political issue--it's a moral issue. do we care that, according to overwhelming information, we are doing some careless, powerfully bad things to the environment? figure it out yourself: Climate Changethanks for listening. -m

  • i heard some folks saying, "i heard that warm temperatures like this happen every few years--it's normal." i also know that a lot of people are afraid to ask what it is and what causes it... here are some answers and links: Scientific opinion on climate change

  • from mike: art show success! the show last night was amazing! thanks to everyone that showed up. we had a line around the block the entire time, and i think some people couldn't get in (i wouldn't know, i was inside signing things for 3+ hours). a lot of people said a lot of really nice things about the work -- glad you got to see it in person.

  • I really enjoy it -- it's like a videogame on wheels. The GPS touch screen is one of the most entertaining things I've ever seen in a car. I still have a Range Rover that I don't drive much anymore, because I started feeling bad about it.
    • On his hybrid (Variety Interviw, 7/16/2007)
  • It was a fun show. At one point the barricade in front of the stage gave way, which scared the concert promoters because they thought people were going to get hurt. So we had to stop the show for a while. That was funny... Although I guess only funny because no one got hurt.
