Do you know what time it is? ASK ERNIE TIME! My favorite time of the day.
Today’s question is:
Q: I would like to purchase some D autographed Cd’s or the like. Any chances of knowing where I could get these from?
A: There are a couple different places that you can find autographed D Cd’s and other miscellaneous items. I went searching several different places and while I was unable to find anything at the moment, it would be a very good idea to keep checking back because this may not always be the case.
That being said, one of the best places to find autographed Cd’s from D as well as any other artists you may be interested in is Yahoo! Japan Auctions. You’ll need to use a shopping service, such as Rinkya or Crecent Shop if you’re not living in Japan.
Another great tip is to keep tabs on the artists new releases. Often times retailers, both online or actual shops in Japan have privileges that come with first press releases. The Cd itself may not be autographed but you can sometimes get an autographed photo or postcard, and that is just as cool.
Lastly, if you ever plan a trip to Japan – and an artist you like happens to be releasing something at that same time, watch for in-store events. By purchasing the release (usually within a certain amount of time), you get a ticket that lets you come back to the store while the band is there. Generally the band will answer some questions and talk for a while. If you’re looking specifically to get a CD or two autographed, you’ll want to look for an event that includes a signing.
