I did things in my 30s that were ignored by the world, that could have been quickly labeled a failure. Here’s a classic example; in 1974 I did a movie called Phantom of the Paradise. Phantom of the Paradise, which was a huge flop in this country. There were only two cities in the world where it had any real success: Winnipeg, in Canada, and Paris, France. So, okay, let’s write it off as a failure. Maybe you could do that.

But all of the sudden, I’m in Mexico, and a 16-year-old boy comes up to me at a concert with an album - a Phantom of the Paradise soundtrack- and asks me to sign it. I sign it. Evidently I was nice to him and we had a nice little conversation. I don’t remember the moment, I remember signing the album (I don’t know if I think I remember or if I actually remember). But this little 14 or 16, whatever old this guy was… Well I know who the guy is now because I’m writing a musical based on Pan’s Labyrinth; it’s Guillermo del Toro.

The work that I’ve done with Daft Punk it’s totally related to them seeing Phantom of the Paradise 20 times and deciding they’re going to reach out to this 70-year-old songwriter to get involved in an album called Random Access Memories.

So, what is the lesson in that? The lesson for me is being very careful about what you label a failure in your life. Be careful about throwing something in the round file as garbage because you may find that it’s the headwaters of a relationship that you can’t even imagine it’s coming in your future.

Kaientai [2000]
A lot of people talk about The Attitude Era in several different ways, varying from the glorification of it to the damnation of what it made wrestling into. One thing that nobody can deny is that it made every wrestler in the WWF into a star. A perfect example of this is the team of Taka Michinoku and Funaki, collectively known as Kaientai.
Between Taka and Funaki, it seemed that neither man had anything to do for a long time on television other than losing randomly to bigger stars than themselves. Their big push came after a match with Triple H, where they gained a victory over the top star. Later in the year, after their music illicited a positive reaction from the crowd, their gimmick underwent a slight change that took them to the next level. Instead of cutting promos like every other wrestler, the Japanese superstars promos appeared to be dubbed. Taka Michinoku would move his lips and gesticulate while a voice blared over the system (which was revealed to be Shane McMahon). When the microphone was passed to Funaki, he simply replied in agreement as a similar voice boomed, “….indeed!”
