I feel like we got the best production help in Tokyo but more importantly, met a very fine new friend and I know the guys do as well. And let me tell you, I've been with Dustin on and off for 13 years and he does NOT give a compliment lightly. And Scotty, he's a great, great guy and I loved that you two seemed to have a lot in common. No where we have been has been as seemless as Japan and we all know we have you to thank for that! Amsterdam was COOL and really, all of Holland has been lovely but Japan remains a great memory. Be well, Clare Libbing - producer, Creative Street Media Group (www.creativestreet.com)
