For the 37th episode of #startthebeat I sat down with my friends Johnny and Carissa for an unplanned but welcomed conversation about growing up being the weird kid and trying to navigate through school, flaky friendships and how so much of what we embraced as children, movies, cartoons, comics, music somehow managed to stick with us to this day. We also get into our mutual obsessions with Japanese culture, anime, toys and eventually the conversation turns to focus on Johnny's history as a musician playing in various local bands and the struggles he is currently dealing with involving his control issues and the ability to comprise his ideals while working with other people in creative environments. To top things off we also threw in a few "Random Questions" at the end just for fun so sit back, relax and lets START THE BEAT!
