“What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?”

Probably jumping over a 6 foot barricade to a 10 foot drop to concrete in a bear costume. In a bear costume is probably what makes it a little crazier. That was on the Reggie tour and they have a bear come on stage with them. They didn’t have their bear, so the first day James said, “Hey, bro. I got a job for you if you’re interested. If you want to, start our set and say ‘Let’s get it on’ then kind of do whatever you want.” I was like, “Alright.” So, I got in the bear suit, jumped, and nobody caught me. I’m thinking, “Dude, they’re definitely going to catch a guy in a bear suit. Who wouldn’t want to catch a guy in a bear suit?” I thought I was going home in a helicopter. That was the last time I did that. That was in Florida too, and Florida kids can’t catch for shit anyway. That’s been my experience.“

Hey all,

My Chemi is back in Japan!!!

We’ve been here for a few days taking in the sights, tastes, and sounds of this great country!

Osaka was our first stop, where we spent the day walking the shopping arcade, spending yens on toys and trinkets you can’t get in the states. We also hung out with giant killer crabs, and treated ourselves to ramen 10,000 years in the making…

We also enjoyed some Kushikatsu, which is Japanese for deep fried goodness. Imagine dipping everything from beef, sausage, and chicken, to octopus in delicious corn-dog batter, frying it, deep dunking it in a milder A1'ish type sauce, and swallowing it whole piping hot. A delicacy indeed. You can watch the whole experience here.

We also managed to squeeze in a show, and it reminded us of why we love playing in Japan so much. We had a few technical problems, first show kinks, but the crowd powered us through.

For those of you who have never been to a show in Japan, the crowd reacts in a way completely unique to Japan. Between songs, they are whisper quiet, respectfully waiting for the next song to start. Once the music kicks, they begin to dance, chant, mosh and sing along at ear piercing levels. When the song ends, polite applause, and then silence. It makes for a special experience, that somehow feels more personal than the size of the show would indicate.

We then hopped on the bullet train to Nagoya. For all of the steel and concrete that fills the big cities, you forget that the much of Japan is filled with beautiful green trees, snow-capped mountains, and smaller, more traditional cities.

The gig in Nagoya went much smoother, and was just as fun as Osaka. DeWees, keyboard extraordinaire, played a beautiful piece on the spot before Black Parade. He always finds new ways to amaze us.

Now on the train to Tokyo, enjoying a green tea ice cream and on the hunt for Masterpiece Hot Rod…
