Josh doesn't look like a ninja, right? He looks like an American. He looks likes he's slowly becoming one of the hamburgers his people so adore (racist), but you throw this boy in front of the arcade game Beat Mania and he becomes something sublime.
Beat Mania is a rhythm arcade game with 7 keys and a turntable. I know what you're thinking: "sounds like the most boring thing since Alanis Morisette's second album."
Well I thought so too, but Josh assured me it was good so I went along to see what the fuss was about.
He would visit this arcade out of the sight of other foreigners for a year after work, talking only to the local otaku who eventually plucked up the courage to say hello.
All of this training turned something so obscure and geeky as a rhythm game into virtuoso display of speed, reflexes and skill that it bypasses nerd-dom and is launched into the stratosphere of awesomeness that most mere mortals will never match.
You may never be this good at anything, ever. Watch and enjoy.
