Except this one is signed by the singer

I blame you all for this. I don't know how, but somehow, it's your fault.

Will post pics when I get it

I know, nobody cares, but it's a new thread at least, right?

The singer is Tarja Turunen

I tend to have a bad influence on people, my apologies.

Never really understood people's obsession with getting signed items though, but if it makes you happy, all the more power to you.

I don't know how much money was wasted, but I was going through my games and DVDs last night and found some duplicates. Some of it may have come from merging collections with someone getting rid of theirs (why do I have 2 DVDs of Resident Evil Apocalypse? ) but it was pretty silly too.

Thanks!

Her solo stuff might not always be as good as pre-2007 Nightwish but it's the next best thing

Even in my darkest hours her voice can soothe me when nothing else will

Of course, their heavier songs are great too, but if you've stuck with me this far, you've probably heard them already

It's weird, I'm not a collector of anything except for music-related items, and even then, symphonic metal is a pretty obscure genre so the signed stuff isn't terribly expensive. If it was, I probably wouldn't bother

And if it wasn't for Tarja Turunen and early Nightwish I never would've gotten into symphonic metal or opera

I think I understand that feeling. I really don't want to buy more physical books, but if I were to find an Hellbook (about Helloween, the power metal band) at the "right" price, I would probably buy it.

I would only pay 100 bucks for one of her CDs if they came with her used panties, don't get the signature thing either
I've been a Nightwish/Tarja fan since I was a teen, that's probably all it is. And if it wasn't for them, I would've never given opera a second thought, now it's my favorite thing to listen to if i'm not in the mood for metal

I liked about half of their first album with Annette but nothing after that. Which is a real shame, because I loved their new singer Floor Jansen in After Forever, but even with her their newest album just isn't the same.

That and I finally make enough money to actually have hobbies so I'm really just buying things I like at this point. The signature thing, it just feels like I now own a piece of history, I guess. I don't really know either

I have a copy of Oceanborn signed by all five members but I honestly have my doubts about it. The signatures are almost TOO perfect

But like, the real signature is already in your mind when you listen to the music, maaaaan.
