    _"I often find that the person who likes Jazz is not necessarily the kind of person who represents what Jazz stands for."_
    I know from the very first impression, paused as I am at this moment in the video, this man has a level of suave and smooth composure that I've never seen in life. Maybe he's not the kind of person you'd hang out with, share drinks with, maybe you don't even like him. But you respect him. You could hate him more than any man in the world, but you'd still look at him and bow your head in an acknowledging nod, and you know he'd do the same in return. An extraordinary man indeed.

    I too hope that Chris someday steps up from simply consuming culture to respecting culture. And perhaps even appreciating culture. The path to this is consuming vast quantities of natto. Love your videos!

    My Japanese teacher was telling me about Natto, so I travelled to my local market, snatched some up. Wife put it in the pantry (eh? it was in a cold case at the store) and I then proceeded to eat it... sensei is still laughing at me. I will do it again, but ... no, I will!
