1 Angel, by Sarah McLachlan, is Aoki’s all-time favourite love song. No, we are not judging.

2 The last thing he does before sleeping at night is clean his rifle. That doesn’t worry us at all.

3 The one food he can’t live without is sushi (wonder how that happened).

4 He’s emotional. He cries when watching commercials that show animal cruelty with a Sarah McLachlan kind of song playing in the background.

5 He listens to Sarah McLachlan alone, in his room, while staring up at the ceiling. He gets caught too, sometimes. He admits it’s embarrassing.

6 Given a choice, he picks puppies over kittens. Cute.

7 His friends ask him to deejay at their house parties. The best one, according to him, was for Lindsay Lohan’s 21st birthday, back-to-back with DJ AM and Samantha Ronson.

8 He would be a scientist if he wasn’t a musician.

9 He graduated from the University of California with a degree in Feminist Studies and Sociology.

10 He dreams of featuring Sarah McLachlan in his music videos in the future. We didn’t see this one coming.
