BEST SCANDAL

Woohoo! Finally got this, after three years of searching:


I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I found this used in Japan, but it was too expensive at 3980 yen. Apparently I need to update my knowledge - this is Amazon Japan:



Gah! Apparently 3,980 was a pretty good deal. 19,800 yen is approximately $250. They have blown up since the Budokan show. Even their latest CD, which is still in print, is selling for above its MSRP (and more than I paid for it).

This is BEST SCANDAL with the DVD, which is the only format I buy CD's in anymore. The regular CD version (no DVD) is expensive too, but not ridiculous like that.

I ended up paying $20 for mine.

Mine's the Hong Kong version, so ok, not technically comparable. But it's the same content and packaging, so I don't care.

Incidentally, part of the reason I'm writing this is to tell you I have a new camera (which I took the top picture with - sorry about the slight blurriness, still learning how to use it!), and I'll be writing about that very soon.

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.

About Me

My photo

I'm married. I like to travel. I have no kids. I have a house... that I'm bad at maintaining. I used to collect classic video games. I own a lot of musical equipment that far outstrips my ability to use it. When I was younger, I was in a band. I like gadgets, and I'm an Android guy. Someday, I would like to live on a different planet.
