Yeah! I won my tickets for Buck Tick concerts , Zepp Tokyo, Dec 2014! Also Buck Tick themed Book Cover Charms…


I am totally ecstatic! I won my tickets in the pre-sale lottery for the Buck Tick’s standing lives at Zepp Tokyo this December, the Fish Tanker’s only Live on Dec 13th as well as the Dec 14th Arui wa Anarchy Tour Final!

I am so, so looking forward to my trip to Japan after so many years 😀  I am hoping B-T will do more concerts while I am in Tokyo, so maybe I will be able to catch more then these two concerts 🙂

Meanwhile, since i had been working on lots and lots of custom orders involving bookcover charms, I made these  Buck Tick themed ones for myself. I am not sure whether i will make them into bracelets or pendants yet……probably bracelets i think. Like a simple chain with one book cover charm hanging off it. i also made some of my Buck Tick themed bookcover charms with a half open Front Cover, so you actually get to peep into a page in the “book”.

I especially couldn’t resist adding the photo page where Atsushi posed with those giant butts, behind the Front Cover of the Rock and Read Cover! 😀

These are a heck of a lot of work to do, more then double the work on a regular book cover but I think they are worth it! They are made of photo paper, mylar, wood, paint, jewelry glue and layers and layers of varnish.


I certainly look forward to wearing these once I complete them. Though right now its back to more custom orders! I accepted orders for 10 custom bracelets, followed by a bulk order of 50 custom bookcover bracelets, another book cover themed custom bracelet, a Mad Hatter themed bracelet,  then a Handbag/backpack Accessory as well as pendant necklace.  I also sort of agreed to work on a couple more custom bracelets, a Star Trek and an alien themed one for another two regular clients, all within the next 4-6 weeks.  I must be mad! 😉

But ah! for Buck Tick spending money and my looked forward trip to Tokyo, I guess its worth it!


Went to see Eagles in Concert, Air Canada Centre, Toronto


Went to see Eagles in concert last night at the Air Canada Centre. This old band has still got the goods! We had a great evening…..the band was a lot of fun, very nostalgic…..

The band did 3 encores though its only a total of 4 songs……I mean the first encore, the Eagles came out and did one song, Hotel California but hey, did they think the audience is going to let them go with just one song????

Last song of the night was “Desperado” and I think it ended the concert on a nice note…

Only thing is it was so stifling hot at the concert, it was like being in a sauna. I think  the air conditioning at Air Canada Centre definitely cannot cope with that many people in a concert in summer!

The first photo is a commercial advertisement for the band and the show.

The 2nd photo is of the goods booth and taken with hubby’s  cell phone camera….not terribly good but they do have nice T-shirts and stuff on sale though its really pricey!

Not J-rock but American punk rock-Green Day Concert

Green dayCompressed

Green Day Toronto

Not J-rock but we went to see Green Day concert last night at the Air Canada Centre, Toronto. So its American punk rock night instead.
Concert started with warm up act at 8pm. Green Day came on stage at 9pm and with encore and all, concert lasted till 11.20pm.

Freezing rain and windy to boot but Green Day soon warmed up the almost full capacity crowd. Its a blast… much energy! My ears are still ringing!

Billy Joe is back in top form and so is Green Day. Way to go, Green Day!
