I have yet to find a Doritos bag cassette player for Guardians 2 listed on amazon in the U.S.
Not that I would buy one. I am just curious to learn how much this item is selling for before it hits the secondary marketplace. $10? $20?
Or, maybe it is worth buying now to sell later.
A friend of mine sold a bag of ELVIS PRESLEY Hershey’s Reese’s Peanut Butter & Banana Cups Miniatures manufactured in 2007, a 30th anniversary item in commemoration of Elvis's death. Original price: I am guessing at around $3.99. In his listing he wrote, "We absolutely do not advise eating this candy due to its age—it was manufactured in 2007. As a Limited Edition sold by a major candy manufacturer, these peanut butter and banana Reese’s cups are not now edible but may have “ap-peel” for Elvis or Hershey’s / Reese’s Cups collectors."
This bag of candy sold for $35.00 last year on the secondary market. Either the purchaser is very happy now or he had a quick demise.
NEW CHARTING NEWS!
The Guardians 2 Soundtrack has now charted, btw. It debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200. I didn't look at the other charts.
So, Glen Campbell, your "Southern Nights" is back on the board!
I pulled up the song's lyrics for the first time. It "sort of" is an anti-war protest song. (If you ignore the "La da da da da da la da da da da da da da da".) What do you all think? A possible connection with the American Civil War? Or something personal in Toussaint's life? From Wikipedia:
The lyrics of "Southern Nights" were inspired by childhood memories Allen Toussaint had of visiting relatives in the Louisiana backwoods, which often entailed storytelling under star-filled nighttime skies. When Campbell heard Toussaint's version, he immediately identified with the lyrics which reminded him of his own youth growing up on an Arkansas farm. In October 1976, Campbell recorded the song with slightly modified lyrics.
It may not be a far stretch that Toussaint's story-telling relatives in the South spoke of tragic family memories from the Civil War.
Written by Allen Toussaint
have you ever felt a southern night?
Free as a breeze
not to mention the trees
Whistling tunes that you know and love so.
just as good even when closed your eyes.
I apologize to anyone who can truly say
That he has found a better way
have you ever noticed southern skies?
It's precious beauty lies just beyond the eye.
It goes running through your soul
Like the stories told of old
he and his dog that walked the old land
Ev'ry flower touched his cold hand.
As he slowly walked by
Would cry for joy
Feel so good
feel so good
Wish I could,
stop this world from fighting.
La da da da da da la da da da da da da da da
like this and many others in the trees
Blow in the night
in the southern skies.
they feel so good it's fright'ning . . .
Wish I could stop this world from fighting
La da da da da da la da da da da da
da da da da da da da da da da da
