And now he wants to share that spark with the world or kids who want to learn Japanese, anyway.
Hes written a Now I Know My ABCs-type song, called The [Learning] Haranga Song, and its for learning the syllable sounds of the Japanese language.
Bloom thinks the quirky and cute song would be great on Sesame Street, sung by Randy Newman and maybe with a Hello Kitty muppet singing backup.
Says Bloom, The beginning of a jazz scat using the exact sounds that make-up the 44 vowel syllabi is exactly a riff from the sounds of Japanese language.
Bloom knows its a dream, but if the song caught on and they filmed a video for MTV, he wouldnt mind, adding: I am one of those people who never grew up.
