  • Saito wants us to comment more and make it up to 50,000 comments. So he suggested a way to get people to comment more is to offer signed goods… or have one person over to Yoko’s place for dinner. Yoko said that his house is like 40-some years old and the dining area is just enough for 2 people, so he supposes one person could come over. If two extra people come, it’ll be packed. lol They are totally joking.
