What the hell is Andy Fossett doing now?

As of right now, Andy Fossett lives in Tokyo and spends most of his time working on GMB and teaching Taido.

πŸ“… Here’s what’s up this week:

  • 🎧 Listening to: My friend Michael turned my onto Head over Heels by Chromeo, and it’s surprisingly good. If nothing else, the production is extremely tight, but it’s got a few hooks and lots of good beats.
  • πŸ“– Reading: Finishing What You Do is Who You Are by Ben Horowitz and This is How Your Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone.
  • πŸ“Ή Filmed some new GMB stuff in Atlanta last week.
  • πŸ“·πŸ‘˜ We took our δΈƒδΊ”δΈ‰ pics yesterday (check the IG post below) with Itaru Hirama, who’s best known for the “No Music, No Life” campaign with Tower Records in Japan. He’s got a hell of a record collection.
  • πŸŽ‚ Happy birthday to Fred, my Swedish friend in Australia.
  • πŸŽ‰πŸ‘©β€β€οΈβ€πŸ‘¨ Congrats to my parents on 50 DAMN YEARS OF MARRIAGE, which is just a ridiculous milestone, and they still seem to like each other pretty well.

When I took off from Haneda last week, the sky was clear, and we had a really nice view of Fujisan at sunset.
