CD Collection! Plus...some Gokaiger talk.

I'm back! I'm officially on Spring Break! Yeah!

I figure this would be the best place to talk about something near and dear to me. This is the unsung hero of all of my videos. It isn't the toys. It isn't my slapdash editing. It isn't even my shoddy photography. It's the music!

What you hear in my reviews and videos are tracks that came straight from my immense CD collection. I've been buying Tokusatsu and Anime CDs since they first became somewhat affordable Yeah Right in the early 90s. The very first Anisong CD I purchased was Dragonball Z Hit Songs 7~The Journey Of The Seven Balls. It might not be the best of the twenty, yes 2-0!, Hit Song CDs from DBZ, but it always holds a special place with me...

Since that fateful day, i've been making steady purchases of CDs from Japan. I went on to finish buying the Dragonball, Dragonball Z, and Dragonball GT Song Collections and singles. In truth, this wasn't difficult. I really started collecting them hardcore once the show was done. Hell, i've never even seen GT.

Now, I really don't consider myself an anime fan by any stretch of the imagination. I've always been a Tokusatsu fan with a few anime series on the side (City Hunter 4ever!). Problem was, Sentai CDs were always rare and expensive. I had started picking up albums and singles one by one where I could. Eventually I started finding CDs on ebay for pennies almost. This was back when you could type "Sentai" and only come up with maybe 30 listings tops. By 2002 I had a pretty formidable collection. I had all nine Kamen Rider Song Collections, all eighteen Super Sentai Song Collection, and a slew of singles. Over the next five years I built up my CD Single collection...

Between 1989 and 2001 Nippon Columbia issued CD Singles in a 8cm (3inch) format. My goal was to track down and buy as many of Columbia's Sentai, Kamen Rider, and Ultraman singles I could. February 2007, I completed my goal. I found the last single I was missing: Merry Xmas! from Carranger.

So what's the point of this blog post?

Stop fucking asking me to send you music for free all the time! Hours and hours and tons of cash went into my CD Collection. It's easy to send a stupid email demanding free tracks, but it was years of work and money putting my awesome collection together. Yup, call me crazy...but i'm entitled to say "NO!", no?


Gokaiger! I've been keeping up with Gokaiger so far. The first two episodes were cool. I wasn't crazy about 3 and 4. They were loaded with kinda lazy plot and some lousy effects shots. Oh well. There is still some excitement seeing all those snazzy suits appear. I saw Ninjablack with a skirt and this weekend we'll be seeing the Dairanger suits! Good stuff. Look forward to whatever Zyuranger arc is on the horizon...

Thanks for reading! See ya next time!
