dear flowerbossa,

please enlighten me, does the standard set and special edition have duplicate music? The only difference between the special and standard is :

the special actually contains essays written by BYJ himself while the standard have scenes written by others of BYJ listening to the music, right?

If I order the 'special & standard' set (12000 yen), I will have 2 sets of duplicate music and pictures but will have both BYJ written essays and listening scenes description (and bonus BYJ card too), right?

Any description of the box set, is it in a nice collectible box or just a CD case? Sorry for all the questions, I went to Brokore but of course have no idea what it says! Thanks for the detailed description, what a great and thoughtful Christmas gift from him!

tomato

flowerbossa said...

Jaime,

...hmm, good question,
give me a minute to figure this out.

Hi tomato!

Yes, I noticed your absence from your "BYJ's Family Gathering".

Hope you had a good time♪

Now,which to buy...

I'm afraid I already made my decision...

Wuri YJ & Sohn-san is really out to get me bankrupt!
(unless santa helps me!)

Thanks for sharing the details with us flowerbossa. What a nice christmas gift to have.

flowerbossa said...

Hi marissa,

I'm sure the CD and photos will keep us warm throughout the holiday season♪

On second thought, I guess you are warm enough...^^

bb said...

to be honest, i can understand giving different pictures in the two sets.

but different essays for the same music? if you ask me, i think that's weird :p

flowerbossa said...

Hi bb,

Perhaps the standard version contains a shorter version of the original essays.

Only a guess....

I was impressed with the comments I read in CREA though.
I could tell that he really DID
appreciate the music ♪

bb said...

oh, btw just thought to let you know i've completed the translation of the short notes in CREA penned by him. finished it yesterday, but had lots to post on my blog these two days, so have held on, will post them tomorrow.

but now, on second thought, i should have left it to you. you know lots more about music than i do, surely you would have done a much better job translating it into english.

oh well, what's done is done. maybe you can help me vet through and give me suggestions for improvement :)

flowerbossa said...

BB,

I'm sure you did a great job with the translation♪ 

I'm looking forward to reading his other essays, too.
