MixTape – Oldies-a-Mix

April 15, 2009 — 2 Comments

Wow, my iPod has some old music~~ haha. I decided to do a list by year, and foudn that picking a song a year is tough!! And it was a long list, so I thought I could split this up in a few other mixtapes. This one it’s a more varied one starting from 1940 with Carmen Miranda, and ending in 1969 with the Jackson 5. xD After that, I have enough music to do a 10-track mix per decade (one per year). You think?

  1. Carmen Miranda – Mamãe Eu Quero – 1940
  2. Carmen Miranda – Chica Chic Boom Chic – 1941
  3. Carmen Miranda – Não Te Dou a Chupeta – 1942
  4. Edith Piaf – La Vie en Rose – 1946
  5. Edith Piaf – Padam Padam – 1951
  6. Edith Piaf – Bravo pour le Clown! – 1953
  7. Yma Sumac – Indian Carnival – 1954
  8. Edith Piaf – Non Je Ne Regrette Rien – 1960
  9. West Side Story Cast – America – 1961
  10. The Beatles – Hold me Tight – 1963
  11. The Beatles – Can’t Buy me Love – 1964
  12. The Beatles – Help! – 1965
  13. The Mamas and the Papas – California Dreamin’ – 1966
  14. The Beatles – With a Little Help from my Friends – 1967
  15. Simon & Garfunkel – Mrs. Robinson – 1968
  16. The Jackson 5 – I Want Your Bacl – 1969

More Pricey Items

March 30, 2009 — 5 Comments

You know how I complain about the prices of regular items in Japan? Well, yeah… $30USD seems a bit too much to me, who has hundreds of albums and hundreds of DVDs. – You could say I have a pretty small fortune… 75% of all those items are probably not collectibles, but who knows… perhaps one day they’ll be rare items. Doubtful, but could happen…

Anyway, whenever I’m zapping and happen to catch Incurable Collectors (Coleccionista Incurable) on A&E, I think about the items I store away in my dusty room… and the ones my mom decided to give away *rolls eyes*

For example, I found this Franz Ferdinand signed copy of You Could Have It So Much Better from 2005 – nearly $150USD – It was, in fact, signed when the group performed in Vancouver and they had a signing session in HMV (used to be Virgin Mega Store). Does that mean I also have a worth $150USD signed copy of the album? NIFTY! And my friend (who went with me) has the companion signed VIP access pass.

Of course, we can get crazier than that… take John Lennon for example! A nearly $14K signed Sgt. Pepper LP, or… a John Lennon photograph by (and signed by) Robert Freeman at $12.5K, or… this John Lennon print at $5,5K,  or a Yoko+Lennon Lithograph at $5,2K, or this REALLY cool Rolling Stone Lennon portrait by Ronnie Wood at $1K.

Still think you’re a crazy fan? LOL’ or are you intimidated a bit with those prices?

You know, just for kicks… take a look at these Greta Garbo items just because I like her so much.

This 1st Edition by Mary Webb which was read by Greta Garbo and signed at nearly $10k… yes, just ‘coz she wrote that. Or… this photograph that includes a letter (signed) to Garbo’s lawyer at nearly $3.5k, or simply this Garbo letter at $2.5k, or if you want to get simpler than that… you can always just buy a photograph of Garbo at just $695USD.

I wonder if… if I had the money, would I try to buy those items??? Would you buy pricey items and collectibles if you could afford it?

, but need to share this. LOL’


Thank you, Nate… for poking my eyes on the voodoo dolls you’ve got stash away. Yes, we’ve done YAM. Please, help yourself to some YAM for Xmas over here

Hope you enjoy.
