thx Jeff for translation!!
I: So I'd like to ask some things about you. First of all, where did the
name "g200kg" come from?
g: Well, I just kind of came up with it at random, so it doesn't have any
special meaning. But there had been some discussion on a bulletin board
where the term "kuso-gakkyoku" (lit. "shit music") was being shown as "kg,"
so it's possible that that had a subliminal effect on me.
I: It seems like you're reeling into making this so-called "shit music."
Why is that?
g: Because I'm cut out for it... maybe.
I: Maybe because you are shit?
I: What's your fascination with shit music?
g: Well, it's never something that will become my main focus, but I keep it

I: "Different rules but the same sport"?
g: I mean, it's like all-you-can-eat yakiniku versus all-you-can-eat
I: Is that a sport?
I: What's in store in the future for your shit music?
g: I want shit music to grow into a mature genre of its own.
# yes, my gears are already upgraded.
# Sampletank 2XL and Petium4
# even if still using WinXPHome and CubaseSL :-)
