[Mad keyboard playing and cheering]
The very first time we were in Japan, I turned on the TV in my hotel room, there was a talent show, and there was a band playing called Gas Mask. They were four or five guys, and they were all wearing gas masks.
They did a song that only had two notes. There was the first note and the second note. Fellows, let's demonstrate now.
One note, please?
The other note?
And the song went like this, back and forth.
[Both notes, over and over again.] GAS MASK! GAS MASK! GAS MASK! GAS MASK!
I thought Japan was the place for me. I thought I had found the place where I was gonna live for the rest of my life.
I was unpacking my bags and putting them IN THE DRESSER of the hotel, thinking "$200 a night, I could last here for awhile, and then I'll find a cheaper place."
And then I continued watching the show, and then it suddenly, like, all became, just like the same as everything else, and nothing else was really quite as good after that.
