The Children All Yell 'We Miss You Son May!'
Son May was my early nineties source for all of the best. Beginning with my purchase of the 'Super Dimensional Fortress Macross - Love, Do You Remember?' Original Soundtrack.
Soon I found my collection growing without having to pay the exhorbinant import prices for most of the soundtracks I was after.
I cannot find any info on Son May online. Only diatribes against their activities by more just-minded otaku seem to exist.
I believe that they came out of Taiwan, and I imagine that they shipped their goods in large boxes to specialty shops in the US, my favorite being the now defunct Mad Cat Comics in Kalamazoo.
Something about the packaging appealed to me. It wasn't quite right. It tried to be right but it got it wrong and in a way that I appreciated.
The college child in my heart yells 'We All Miss You Son May!'

What People Are Saying About the Plaza of the Mind
...[Plaza of the Mind] impressed me in its magnificent weirdness...this sorta je ne sais quoi that you find in interesting art... ...I mean that purely as a compliment!
Plaza of the Mind is a clinamen away from the holeopathic replay by the Android Meme of the old perceptual agon of electrically-programmed youth confronting the Gutenbergian Establishment. Irresistible Force meets Immovable Object.
