Tips for Buying EarthBound

September 28th, 2009 | Weekly Round-Up

Another very busy week, so this weekly roundup comes a day late. And will be much shorter than usual. They might wind up being this way for a little while, actually.

So here’s a very brief look at what happened this past week:

EarthBound News

Cool Auctions & Merchandise

Here’s a quick look at interesting stuff on eBay this past week:

And here’s some cool stuff on Yahoo! Auctions Japan:

And stuff on Amazon:

Whatโ€™s Up With Itoi

  • This week Itoi talked about how eyes don’t get to see our dreams, since dreams involve the optic nerve directly or something. He talked about this and compared it to other things.
  • While Itoi’s famous actress wife was walking their famous dog in the park, some photographers came up and asked if they could photograph the dog for a photo book about dogs they’re putting together. She politely declined, though. They didn’t realize who she was or who the dog was though, which I thought was funny/neat. She’s on TV all the time and the dog even has its own popular book and merchandise ๐Ÿ˜›


Well, that’s all for this past week. So busy so busy

I would learn how to play piano just to play the songs in that book.

I ended up getting the Mother 1+2 cellphone screen cleaners that were on YJA earlier this week. So much more merchandise to get!

Who is Itoi’s wife, anyway? I’ve never heard anything about her; and can’t find it on Google.

Real men transcribe the piano music by ear!

Nah, I probably could have done that about 3-4 years ago, but I’m very out of practice now.

How come her last name isn’t Itoi too?

Thanks, tomato. ๐Ÿ™‚

*googles her* Wow, lucky Itoi; she’s hot! Is that really her in the water fruit picture? *warning NSFW*

I always knew Itoi was a lady’s man.
