~Aloha for Japan International Wota Charity Auction~



I’m happy to post here in collaboration with International Wota a charity fun raiser for aid to Japan where 100% of the final sale price for each auction will support American Red Cross and so much of my heart lies and goes out to Japan and the unimaginable hardships incurred to everyone with such an awful tragedy occurring and the long road ahead to recovery and every effort and support we can get together to make surely will make a difference in the healing. Please visit International Wota’s IW Charity Auction page for more details and complete auction listing.

You can help people affected by disasters like the recent earthquake in Japan, as well as countless crises at home and around the world, by making a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. A gift of any size supports the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross whether it’s responding to a disaster, collecting lifesaving blood, teaching skills that can save a life, or assisting our military members and their families.

Many blog affiliates of IW have donated wonderful and cherished items which continue to go up for bid for this most heartfelt and important cause in a collective effort and today I’m most grateful to be able to donate the following items and collectibles to IW’s Charity Auction and each item is also linked individually to its corresponding eBay auction following their descriptions which appear below.

All auctions end April 26th, 9 pm eastern time.

Morning Musume glass & coaster set (2)

Morning Musume glass & coaster setMorning Musume, C~ute and Berryz Koubou each released glass and coaster sets in the Winter of 2007 and these were produced in limited quantities. The glass is really pretty and measures a tall 7 1/8 “s making it perfect to enjoy your favorite juice, beer or even wine although it’s not really a wine glass…something I’ve proved a few times to not matter one bit :P! But no matter how you decide to enjoy this high quality glass collectible from Morning Musume you can also rest assured that no bit of condensation or drips will affect any of your household surfaces as it also includes a stylish and thick rubberized coaster which also bears the Hello! Project and Morning Musume logos~. This glass and coaster set is 100% new and never opened! You so know you want to drink out of it asap!

Bz The Best Pleasure  LE (promotional puzzle)

Gosh is there any popularity or sales record that the J~rock legendary B’z haven’t held at one time or another?! And to appease their legions of dedicated fans, in the Summer~Fall of 98’ the B’z released two consecutive mega~hit best of albums♥ the first of which included a LE first press puzzle (unassembled in an outer box) which remains as one of the more unique and creative extra goods I’ve yet seen to date and even rarer is the assembled puzzle photographed above which depicts a wonderfully colorful collage where the guys themselves appear in an array of walks of life. The puzzle version included with the first press editions of “B’z The Best Pleasure” depicts a side view while this version depicts a “straight~ahead” view and this assembled puzzle (not glued though, you can take it apart and drive your brain wacky to enjoyment’s extent putting it back together!!….lol I’m notably terrible at puzzles….see SPEED post :P) comes packaged as a display piece housed against a thick cardboard and protected by an outer re~sealable plastic. The puzzle measures approximately 14 1/4” x 10 1/4” and is newly sealed, never opened! A wonderful and most rare collectible for any B’z fan and stylish and well made enough for framing =). This puzzle extra was only shipped to select record stores in highly limited quantities and physically handed out to fans in~store for first album purchasers making it most rare~!

Princess Princess The Complete Songs of Princess Princess LE box

Princess Princess The Complete Songs of Princess Princess LE box (2)To commemorate a most accomplished~full~circle and legendary career in music, Princess Princess (often called Puri Puri) first released an all inclusive song box set in June of 1996. Sony Music proudly and respectfully placed so much attention to detail and presentation for this limited edition release as this complete 120 song set comes housed in an outer slip case which is beautifully imaged with the girls while 7 discs each presented in individual picture labeled sleeves sit in a high quality binder…..you simply don’t see many releases with such a high quality presentation today and every set is serial numbered further making it special, this set is # 31134. This set also includes a 96 page booklet with photos and complete song lyrics. This LE set is second hand as I won it on Yahoo! Japan auctions several years ago used and while the booklet and outer casing show signs of aging the disc binder and each disc are in immaculate condition~. An amazing song collection for any Puri Puri fan or any J~rock enthusiast! For more on Princess Princess see: “13 years after…Princess Princess still Japan’s greatest female band~.”

Morning Musume Memory seishun no hikari (first press) single

February 1999, Morning Musume released their pivotal and influential 4th single “Memory seishun no hikari” which will always remain a J~classic and a sign of the times. This single was the last for original member Fukuda Asuka and remains to date to include a rare Tsunku gem in “Never Forget” which was specifically written for a graduating girl~. Much more than anything this version of “Memory seishun no hikari” remains a collectible for Morning Musume fans as it’s the first press version which depicts the girls in silver while the regular edition has them dressed in “pink.”
