Checklist and Mojofly

A big chunk of my money goes to my music/movie collection. Way back I used to buy items in a snap then later on regret acquiring some of them, a bad habit that I had to correct. That's why I've developed a checklist that I run thru before I make any purchase. I'd jot down all of the albums and dvds that i like, checkout the internet just see if some of my favorite artists released a special edition/new/the best of album. The checklist helps me discern the items that are "purchase worthy" from the "impulse-spur-of-the-moment".

I purchase cds and dvds based on these terms:
a. I'm a huge fan of the artist/movie.
b. I buy them during SM malls' 3-day sale since they give out 10% discount on all of their CD and or DVDs regardless if it's a new release or not. Discount counts especially with the bulk of items I purchase.
c. I wait until they release a repackaged version of an album. A big draw back is that it would require a waiting period of not less than a year before they release these kinds of album. The wait is worth while since I get more value for my peso when they throw out a couple of rare/live/unplugged tracks and some repackages even include music videos.

In line with my entry, I recently got a copy of Mojoflys' Now Album and I'm very happy with my copy. The 2-disc package marries the original ‘05 full-length and an A-VCD featuring live tracks from their first major concert at the Music Museum (September, 2005) and the 3D-animated music video of Tumatakbo. For those who haven't heard of Mojofly, check out my side bar under "Soundtrack" It's one of my favorite tracks in the album entitled "Mata". Lougees' rich voice paired with the Cello, simply amazing. She's the best thing that happened to Mojofly, she's written a number of songs (all of them are my favorite tracks) in the album.

Here's the lyrics to "Mata"

kumusta na
nandyan ka pa ba
wala na yatang ibang magagawa
kundi tumawa

nandyan pa ba
mga ala-ala
ang tanging bagay na naiwan
sa 'ting dalawa

wag nang paikutin ang isa't isa
lahat ng bagay ay malinaw na
di na rin kailangan pagpilitan pa
di mo na kinakailangan pang magsalita

nakita ko ng lahat ito
pinahihiwatig ng mata mo
salamat na lamang sayo
ohhhhhhh

nakita ko ng lahat ito
pinahihiwatig ng mata mo
salamat na lamang sayo
ohhhhhhh

kumusta na
nandyan ka pa ba
wala na yatang ibang magagawa
kundi tumawa

nandyan pa ba
mga ala-ala
ang tanging bagay na naiwan
sa 'ting dalawa

wag nang paikutin ang isa't isa
lahat ng bagay ay malinaw na
di na rin kailangang pagpilitan pa
di mo na kinakailangan pang magsalita

nakita ko ng lahat ito
pinahihiwatig ng mata mo
salamat na lamang sayo
ohhhhhhh

nakita ko ng lahat ito
pinahihiwatig ng mata mo
salamat na lamang sa'yo
ohhhhhhh

mata mo, mata mo, mata mo, mata mo...........
