Hip Tanaka Bought Our Book @ Blip Tokyo

Hirokazu “Hip” Tanaka, composer of dozens of classic Nintendo soundtracks including Tetris, Metroid, and Dr. Mario, is a known fan of concert photography. So it was a pleasant surprise to discover that he bought our book, Chiptography’s at Blip Festival Tokyo 2012, and tweeted about it the next day! I was working the merchandise table early in the night at the second and final night of Blip when a man in a fedora thrust money at me and pointed at a book shortly after doors opened. I bagged the book, pins, stickers, etc for him and he disappeared before I could even wonder who he was. I saw him on stage at the end of the night–turns out he was the surprise guest DJ and closed out the festival! He tweeted out his purchase the next day.
