Not many people know this, but I'm going to make sure you all do.
I was once a set builder on the Monkey Magic TV series back in 1978. True story.
I was at an underground and highly illegal casino in Nagasaki one warm evening in the summer of '78 after belting together what felt like 567sqm of plywood, when then writer Hiroichi Fuse, director Yusuke Watanabe and the legendary Chuck Norris walk in.
It's a little known fact that Chuck Norris was actually meant to play the leading role which was eventually filled by Masaaki Sakai, but I digress.
Chuck saunters over and he's like..."Hey "twinair" (actual name withheld to protect the innocent) remember that time when we played basketball on the flight deck of the Kitty Hawk and you threw the ball into the sea and it lodged in the spout of a humpback whale, causing it to die?"
But I couldn't remember. So my account of what happened next is a little cloudy to say the least. But I'll go back and trawl through my memory and fill you all in on the rest of it tomorrow....
This aint no fuckin' bible study.
I didn't come here to save whales.
I came here to shake my dick and have a great time.
