A surprise find

On October 26, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

I was out walking today, since I’m still not managing to get up at 5:45am. I haven’t since my cold. I wake up very tired (I haven’t gotten to bed at a good time but once since my cold, either), stuffed up still, and just turn on the secondary alarm which is set for 7:45am.

Well, when I walk during the day I walk at a more leisurely pace, but go a longer distance. I usually end up browsing various stores too while I’m out. Well today I went into Cartoon Field at the mall, and surprise: they had a new shipment of CDs. Double surprise: It had a great little two CD set of character songs from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu. Including the Opening, Ending, the big songs from the festival, and alternate version of the ending for every major character.

Wow wow wow. It was only $26 with tax, too.

Oh wait, I just found out why it’s so cheap. It’s not an original. In looking up what it would cost elsewhere, it comes to my attention that it’s by Miya Records, a Taiwanese firm.

Well, that’s what countries gets for sticking it to the ROC. But it is funny that they typoed their not-quite-copyright notice. Why it has one at all I guess is to fool the retailers like the one I just bought from. But still: “WARNING: FAll Rights Reserved. Unauthorized duplication is a violation of applicable laws.” It doesn’t actually claim copyright but it sounds like it does, so people are tricked.

Oh well. It’s high quality and it’s the closest there is to the real thing published here, I believe.
