What’s Up With Itoi
- This week Itoi talked about how eyes don’t get to see our dreams, since dreams involve the optic nerve directly or something. He talked about this and compared it to other things.
- While Itoi’s famous actress wife was walking their famous dog in the park, some photographers came up and asked if they could photograph the dog for a photo book about dogs they’re putting together. She politely declined, though. They didn’t realize who she was or who the dog was though, which I thought was funny/neat. She’s on TV all the time and the dog even has its own popular book and merchandise 😛
Well, that’s all for this past week. So busy so busy
