Too Much !

- HRC Japan announced that they would release Facade guitar & Holiday Ornament pins in Dec.1st.

You have already known Facade guitar, right. I really think Facade guitar series are good idea even though some of them are not really good design. I planed that I wanted to collect Facade from all HRC where I have ever visited, but now I recognized it was not good idea, because I have visited 68 HRC. TOO MUCH !, and some of them would not release Facade series pins like Bangkok, so I decided not to do it.

-About Holiday Ornament pins, some of them actually look cute like one from Yokohama & Universal Osaka. Both pins look good, and many collectors would like to collect those.

The way to Times Square.

- Hard Rock Cafe found the way to Times Square. It's true.
HRC announced that HRC New York will be relocated to the Times Square(scheduled in fall 2005) that will be very close to Hard Rock Hotel New York (Scheduled to open late 2005).
The location will be at 1501 Broadway, on the corner of 43rd Street-the former site of the historic Paramount Theater, where many music legends appeared, including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and the Beatles. And the former site of WWE restaurant!!

The new Hard Rock Cafe New York will be one of the city's largest entertainment destinations, featuring a 583-seat restaurant, a 1,500 square-foot retail shop with authentic Hard Rock merchandise and a live music area for concerts and special events.

We have to say Good-bye to the historical HRC next year.
We will miss you!

HRC announced that Hard Rock Hotel would be opened in Madrid, Spain late 2005.

- Like everyone knows, HRC never forget the business. Many collectors come, and HRC sell many items. That is the way they always do.

- The event was actually great. They had great charity auction including some of rare items, and we could have enough time to trade as well as to talk. I hope HRC Japan continue the official event every year.

Many collectors here ! Posted by Hello

Can you imagine the word of Noise from this banner ??
If so, I think I did good job on the design.

I am not kidding ! There is a person whose name is Noyz on blogger. I didn't expect it, so I was surprised!! I mean it was a good surprise. I have tried to make a noise to the world through my Hard Rock Cafe web, so I made the word "NOYZ" for my blog, and then Noyz found my noyz by accident. Thanks for Internet society. I put Noyz's blog on the sidebar as my favorite blog.

Time for Merry X'mas ?

- It is time for X'mas even though it is still November. I am talking about HRC pins!
As you know, the brand of X'mas is very popular around the world, so of course, Hard Rock Cafe Japan don't miss the chance of a big business.
In fact, HRC Japan will release 13 kinds of X'mas pins in Nov.15th!!
I hope many collectors will not leave this hobby, and could understand that this is their business.

- Actually, some of X'mas pins look nice. From the scans on HRC Japan web(Japanese text only), my favorite is the one from Uyeno.
Very cute, right?
