  • boy have we got a day ahead of us today and like an hour and a half I've

  • gotta go meet a TV crewman yep it's the whole thing I have a little

  • bit of a morning routine but I've got a small problem it's a two-part problem so

  • I think we can kill two birds with one stone today part a I've been feeling a

  • little bit claustrophobic in the vlog because I'm always right here

  • Part B my workout room is the disaster lately I've cleared it out somewhat so

  • that I can actually show it to you guys but before I can even leave today I'm

  • not gonna be able to feel good unless I get some of it cleaned up it's it's it's

  • right over here you see this room here doubles as my workout room and my

  • shamisen practice room half problem half confession you see I haven't done a

  • proper cleaning of this room in like two months

  • so before we can go anywhere today I've got a clean

  • I mean anything that you

  • that's the easy part the hard part is pulling up all the tiles and cleaning

  • under them you see this floor has seen months of workouts since the last time

  • that I uprooted it and properly cleaned it I don't even want to show you guys

  • how it looks under there not as bad as I thought

  • still gross stuff still gross so here we go

  • also I feel like this has potential to get really messy so let's do this

  • all right let's clean

  • that's what happens when you don't put the weights down properly who so the

  • floor is done the tiles are cleaned and now it's time to get changed out of this

  • dude I already got changed let's just lay these tiles and go we're gonna be

  • late all right so some good news and some bad news good news room is done bad

  • news in the process I knocked over the camera and snap to my microphone in half

  • it might be able to fix it but I'm gonna need some epoxy and anyways we gotta get

  • going and did I mention that today's a (Tsugaru) Shamisen day

  • so it is 9:00 10:00 in the morning now I'm off to meet the TV crew and then we

  • are going to be meeting one of the Yoshida brothers after doing that for

  • those of you struggling video a lot of people asked well how do you actually

  • get the energy to get up and get things started in the day and it's exactly what

  • I did this morning I like to start every single day with some form of

  • accomplishment whether it be minor or major find that the days where I just

  • start my day by sitting on the sofa scrolling through my phone don't

  • typically go as well as the days where I start by taking some form of action in

  • the morning and seeing if today's a pretty big day I wanted to get it

  • started the right way

  • thank you alright guys so the TV crew has

  • requested that I don't post any spoilers in case we do end up moving forward with

  • this it's fair enough so while I do this let me take a few

  • seconds to show you guys what I did yesterday I'm out here in Asakusa at

  • Sensoji for just a moment to check out this Hozuki or ground cherry

  • festival vendors from over a hundred Stalls selling their own ground cherries

  • in the hopes of giving people a thousand days of blessings this festival takes

  • place here in Asakusa every single year for two days listen to the sound sounds

  • so beautiful also the views check out the views

  • it's quite the fair and a sight to be seen but we have a day to get to so

  • let's get to that for now I'll share a little bit of what I can which is we

  • were preparing for something called Mitama Matsuri one of my favorite

  • festivals here in Japan and we were shooting for that today I want to keep

  • talking to you guys about it I want to tell you all about it the week we got to

  • get going for the next meeting I have to do is related to that concert gig that I

  • landed that I'll be recording I've got to go check out that space today this

  • job involves not only one but several major artists here in Japan also it's

  • worth mentioning you see that case right there

  • that's a famous case that's the case of the shamisen one of the Yoshida

  • brothers this this is the older Yoshida brother right here, Ryoichiro

  • come out to this place right now to kind of scout out the location so I can

  • figure out where I'm gonna put my cameras for the shoot the shoot is for

  • Ryoichiro's other band called wasabi it's a four member group

  • Shamisen, shakuhachi, taiko, and koto and in case you don't already know wasabi

  • they're amazing one of the coolest things though is that each one of the

  • individual members of wasabi is top-level professional in their

  • respective fields which is what makes it such a great band you know what I could

  • go on about it forever but it's gonna be linked below so so we're gonna add some

  • of the equipment that we

  • For any of you wondering how I got those rooftop shots of Shibuya it's all on the

  • level in fact there's a little area out here and the music is a little loud so

  • give me a second to relocate on top of 109 men's right here in Shibuya they've

  • opened up this like rooftop space and you can come up and get those iconic

  • Shibuya Crossing pictures and videos at the moment it looks like it's free so

  • yay and they've got this whole system that'll let you get pictures of yourself

  • so cool and there's a cafe in here

  • and now that we have a spare minute I want to share a little bit with you guys

  • about this Mitama Matsuri that I'm getting to play by playing on

  • Saturday and I think 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. so if you're in Tokyo and you want to

  • come check it out I will be there the festival itself takes place in Tokyo's

  • Yasukuni shrine and the opportunity to play there is a rare one a very rare one

  • and quite the honor I'm I'm very very excited about this I've been attending

  • this festival almost every single year for the better part of about 10 years

  • now it's I'd say in my top three favorite festivals in all of Tokyo and

  • it's one that I do my best to never ever miss but I think you guys get the point

  • I'm pretty excited about

  • not to mention the fact that I get to record that concert next week which is

  • exciting all in its own but with all of that said and done and out of the way

  • tonight I'm doing something that I never do just going out for some nice relaxed

  • drinks with a Friday and honestly I think that's just as important as the

  • rest of it reminding myself every now and then just to take time to connect

  • with the people around me and actually enjoy in my life it's an important thing

  • it is incredibly easy to get wrapped up in my work and just like days and weeks

  • pass we've all heard the super cliche phrase variety is the spice of life but

  • I think variety is also the spice of time it helps you feel the passage of

  • time much more if you're just doing the same thing every single day all the

  • day's can bleed into feeling like it's just one day and you can lose the

  • ability to feel that passage of time and then BOOM before you know it life is

  • over I'd say that's definitely a fear of life

  • so the other day in the vlog everybody thought that shoulder man that I was

  • hanging out with was Chris it wasn't Chris okay no if it was I would

  • definitely definitely let you know yeah who would hang out with that dude anyway

  • who indeed let's go get some drinks

  • I feel like I almost definitely didn't film enough b-roll to transition to this

  • scene right here transition

  • right Chris is impressed with my lighting skills I'm literally just using

  • this sign right here but you do what have to work you know works funny so

  • I enjoy it I always feel like this - real time for how much work I want to do

  • in the case is that sound weird - something I've got all except you you

  • and me both you and me both

boy have we got a day ahead of us today and like an hour and a half I've
