I meant to get this blog post done on Tuesday when it was my turn to blog. Unfortunately, work got a little insane, which meant that there was no spare time, especially with an evening meeting. Anyway, it probably fits better now as everyone is still basking in the glory of the new album. With… Continue reading Are All Autographs Equal?
I think I might be the only person who really loves her concert ticket stubs. I am not really sure on an emotional level why I love them so. Maybe, they work to trigger some emotion about good times I have had. I’m not sure. Anyway, over the years, I have managed to acquire two… Continue reading Memorabilia Medley: Concert Ticket Stubs
I am beginning to think that I’m getting to be “old school” in how I choose to live my life. Just recently, I had a discussion with my family about how people buy and listen to their music.

I can remember how wide-eyed I was when the realization hit that Simon was… Continue reading What About Bootlegs?
I have not been able to do much celebrating this Duran Duran Appreciation Day. My sister and niece have been visiting. They were due to fly out yesterday but severe weather caused a lot of flights to be cancelled, causing their visit to be extended. As I type this, they are in the air on… Continue reading Memorabilia Medley: Timeline Poster
As many of our readers know by now, I’m an avid reader. There isn’t a single day that goes by that I’m not reading something, whether books on music (of which I am in the middle of several – my goal this year is to finish them!), or “for pleasure” books that I listen to… Continue reading Please Please Tell Me Now
Earlier this summer, a very kind Duranie asked me if I would be interested in some old magazines featuring Duran as he needed to make some space in his house. Uh…is the sky blue? Grass green? Of course, I would be interested! A couple of weeks later they arrived from Europe. In this package of… Continue reading Memorabilia Medley: More Magazines
