No, nothing to do with birthday. But I finally accumlated enough points on my Yamano Music Store member card to get my free CD. 50 points for a 3000 yen CD. Not bad. Now I have to start again. Only took two years... CD are so expensive in Japan. The thing is that a lot of them have bonus tracks. For example, right now the Cranberries CD, Wake up and Smell the Coffee, which is not even released yet in the Status, is available here and has a bonus track. Same for the Beautiful Garbage CD, with 2 bonus tracks. But they are 3000 plus yen.
