I can drive a herd of cattle through the studio now and they wouldn’t blink an eye, you know. It’s like, with machetes, when I brought these machetes in, everyone really panicked. I don’t know what they were thinking, but I thought, “Well, of all the things we’ve done in the studio, why are you concerned about this?” We had to do it. I had to be able to get them out — the machetes out — that very day because it was worrying too many people, you know. So, these were big — we’re talking about things with blades that were, oh, I don’t know, three or four feet long — I mean, these were big.
