Where's Jay-Z's plaque? Where's Eminem's plaque? Where's Kendrick Lamar's plaque?

Enough said.

Shoutout to /r/HipHopHeads!

No, it's pretty boring. "Hi, I make a show called Joe Goes where I do fun interviews with people. Do you have a few minutes for an interview? No? (starts crying) PLEASE?! I JUST WANT TO BE A YOUTUBE STAR

If you loved Parks & Recreation...

I give her fashion advice all the time, but it turns out, she's not a big fan of clothes.

Well, guys, it's been fun, but I have to go.

Thank you so much for your questions, and for the support! It's been a while since the last AMA. I'll have to do this more often.

One thing to add, before I go: When you're traveling, don't go down the wormhole of reading bad shit about the countries! When I was researching the Philippines, I read all these stories about people getting mugged and kidnapped. When I was researching Thailand, I was reading all these stories about how the cops would arrest Americans for filming on videocameras. These were my first two stops - Manila and Bangkok. I was really worried I was going to get mugged or kidnapped or arrested. I almost cancelled the Southeast Asia portion of my trip. Some family members were telling me to, as well. But guess what? I went, and it was AWESOME. The shoots went without a hitch, totally fine. Nothing bad happened at all. I just used basic common sense - like not filming in Manila at night, or in sketchy areas, etc. People are quick to write about bad experiences on the Internet, not about positive ones. I cringe when I think about how I almost cut Southeast Asia from the trip; would've missed on so many great experiences.

That's it. Thanks again! Keep watching! Lot of new Joe Goes coming up! (After a couple weeks of classics. Need a break from editing!)

The guts! Give me a Purple Heart for these videos!

I don't approach it like that. My only goal is to have fun in the interviews and have funny interactions. I don't want to offend people. I know there are some people out there who make videos just "trying to be awkward," but that isn't my main goal.
