Interviewer: You’ve worked with one another for a while now. So let’s be serious then: What’s one thing you always wondered about the other person?

Mike Patton: Dan, I want to know where you keep your pillows in the house. I’ve been using the couch pillows and I’m all chaffed. [Patton’s staying in Nakamura’s NYC place for the week.]

Dan Nakamura a.k.a. Dan The Automator : They’re in the closet.

MP: Really? That’s the illuminating answer?

DN: Yeah. Mike, if you’re having a nice meal and want a light after-dinner drink as you digest, what do you order?

MP: This is a tough question, since they’re all so heavy. I might go with a younger scotch. What would you say to that?

DN: What about a cheese plate?

MP: Oh no. Never. Cheese is only for when I’m still hungry. You like that shit though, don’t you?

DN: Yeah, a good bleu cheese or something would work after dinner.

MP: I had a meal in Paris once where all the intermezzo courses were cheeses. I thought that was kinda interesting. We’re just gonna talk about food, you know.

Partial Failure
