Miya is out of town until Thursday and the long weekend has put me way behind on work. I'm sweating a bit from the heat and from the work.

I guess that's better than just sitting around doing nothing. In 14 minutes I will be on TV. KTSF channel 26. It was for a program called STIR TV. I wonder how it will be?

Yesterday I was in San Francisco enjoying a ballgame at the Pacbell park or something of that name. I can't keep up with the name changes of corporate sponsored ball parks.

The Giants lost and Barry Bonds didn't even play. Though the park is beautiful, I'll take Oakland Coliseum over it any day. I love the A's and though I like the Giants, the love affiar is not there and will never be there like it is for the beloved A's.

My mom made a feast last night for myself, sister, and brother in law. I spent the duration of the meal face down with little conversation as the food was so grubbin good.

I lay motionless for a good hour after my dessert of cheesecake was forced down. Finally I headed home and got myself on my bike to help digest.

It was still in the 80's at 10 PM and I was able to ride in flip flops, shorts, and a t-shirt. Rode til' nearly midnight and for some reason got stopped by 3 seperate homeless persons asking for money.

I was in a good mood and gave each a dollar and spent a good 5 minutes with each talking about whatever they wanted to. One woman still had her wits, but the other two men were out of it and I felt bad.

People think that homeless people are just lazy, but lots these people are just mentally unable to work and end up on the streets. It's pretty sad. I plan on staying in tonight to catch on work and play the guitar a bit. Wish me luck. I don't want to be lazy, but I'm feeling sleepy.

Peace always, Mike Park

PS-I'll be posting the following for the next few weeks, so if you've read this before go to sleep.

THE 2nd ANNUAL ASIAN MAN RECORDS day w/the OAKLAND A'S!!

This year, the day will be July 26th vs. the Seattle Mariners. We will begin the BBQ at 5:00 PM at the far north end of the Oakland Coliseum parking lot facing the freeway 880. There will be a big red van with a 10 x 10 white tent that says plea for peace on it.

I'm gonna rent a generator and have punk bands play until we get told to shut down.(hopefully that won't happen) There will tons of Asian Man swag being given away, so bring a bag with you. If you plan on coming, I need you to email me at mikeasianman@aol.com

This way I will know how many tickets to buy(It should cost around $5 as I think I can get a group discount) and to know how much food to buy for the BBQ. The big problem last year was that so many people didn't RSVP that I was struggling with lack of food.

ARGHHH!!! So, there's the info.. I'll send more info. as it comes in. And I'll list the bands playing as that info. comes in.
