My Tenso package arrived today.
There’s a rapper on Shojotai’s “Can’t take my eyes off of you” that sounds a lot like the rapper on “I feel for you.” Shojotai recorded their song in 1987. “I feel for you” was recorded in 1984. I’d have to get my hands on Shojotai’s CD to know for sure.
Tenso sent me an email they found my CD. They said the package had the wrong Tenso ID so they didn’t know who it belonged to.
I didn’t realized my CD was a Korean import until it arrived. Not that it matters as long as it’s not bootleg. The obi strip says “PONYCANYON KOREA.” The tracks are exactly the same. Inside there’s a sticker of the front cover art. iTunes Japan also has Kiki’s OST except it’s missing the last two tracks.
There’s over 2,000 songs in my anime and jpop playlist that I want to hear but my iPod keeps playing the same songs over and over. The Shuffle feature doesn’t seem to help either. I’ve played around with the Last Played feature and achieved the desired results.
Create a Smart Playlist with the Last Played and “is not in the last” option. Go back in time as far as possible then stop where there is still music. This is your first playlist. It may only have a few songs–songs you haven’t heard in the longest time. Your first few playlists will be sparse. Keep adjusting the time forward to keep songs in your playlist. The drawback to this playlist is having to adjust it.
I just ordered another 10,000 yen iTunes card and noticed the price dropped. Last year, the price for the same card was $136. Then the price went up to $141 in January. Now it’s $124. That’s better. I was slightly discouraged when they raised their price in January. Japan Codes is cheaper than JBOX for iTunes cards. That’s why I keep using them.
