Kradam - Best Top 2 Ever
Halo, WORLD!

Once again I shake my fist at being so damn far away from the side of the world where AWESOME AI touring is happening and Kradam is taking place before our very eyes. Well, not *my* eyes but such is the sorry state of my fannish life.

Anyway, remember that Rolling Stones cover with Adam Lambert on it, looking like he was poised on the verge of despoiling every Man, Woman and Pocket Idol?. Yar, I ordered my copy from Borders aaaages ago but decided to hop drop by Kinokuniya the other day to ask if they still had it.

This was what the counter person told me, "Sorry, but it was all sold out". I thought, Ok, pretty understandable. I mean, how *wouldn't* you sell out tons of copies of Adam Lambert with a *snake* coiled around his *thigh*, on the cover? Makes perfect sense.

That was, until the counter service person told me just how many copies of that Rolling Stones mag they ordered: Two.

Yes, goshdarned, bedamned TWO copies. To appease all the crazy Adam stans in Malaysia. Well done.

::headdesks::

No words. Do you like, even *want* money, Kinokuniya? Because I like, has them but I gots no Rolling Stones mag to spend it on, GODDAMN.

Borders is looking bleak anyway - unlikely that they do take about 1 month to ship my mag over to Malaysia, more's the pity.

OH WELL. Piracy - Where supply ALWAYS meets demand.

++++

On a separate note:

On Yaoi

Holy Mother. June manga announces their line-up for Jan 2010 and some purchase-now-get-your-slash-faster prog.

Two words.

YAMADA YUGIIIIIII!

It's been So. Many. Years. since Close the Last Door Vol. 1 has been published and the fate of June Manga picking the second vol up in limbo due to Biblos' bankruptcy woes, etc.

Seriously, the worse case of blue balls EVER, ok.

I've been over the Yaoi fandom curve for some time (helooo Merlin and KRADAM...) but I'll read Yamada Yugi-drawn anything in a heartbeat *anyday*. \

It'll still be about more than a year from now (ARGH, Oct 2010??) and I am not going to pauper myself with shipping fees AND possible confiscation by our terror-some and efficient Malaysian Customs due to the Bad Gay content, so will NOT be pre-ordering mah copies online.

Still! Confirmed news that they will be publishing it and a *date* - something to look forward to.

Life Is Good.

Note to self: Hanging around ontd_ai comm all day will do funny things to your English, for me for you for me for you for me.

BB every bookstores only had like 2 copies of RS at most :( I asked MPH about it as well and that was what the salesperson said - every branch of their bookstores will only have 2 copies at most because of the limited imports or some shit like that. I'm guessing it's only normal since there's not a lot of demand for RS before Adam exploded onto the scene.

Dammit though I really want it! I ordered mine at MPH but they haven't contacted me at all, and I suspect they've forgotten. The last time I found an RS issue was last Friday and it was the Jonas Brothers' issue - the one that's after Adam's issue. WELL FUCK YOU, TOO, MPH.

GODDAMN. I'm glad one of the ONDT_AI BBS scanned and uploaded the article on the comm or I'd be stir-crazy by now. STILL!

I KNOW RIGHT? I STILL WANT TO OWN IT IN ITS FULL GLORY BUT GOTDAMN I'M GLAD SOMEONE SCANNED IT.

UGH, KEMPEN MEMBACA BUKU YEAH RIGHT. Actually I support the whole thing but it'd be easier if the books are at least cheaper D: RM40+ for books is a bit expensive IMHO but I buy them anyway because I'm a book whore. AND I GUESS THEY'D SAY "WELL MAGS ARE NOT BOOKS, SO LOL AT YOU"
