Fairuza Balk clippings for sale!

Several magazines from Fairuza’s early career are for sale. Clippings from several magazines which contains interviews, photoshoots, events, movies and so on. The collection is getting sold because I, Maria need to earn money for an operation for my beloved dog, Oliver. He used to be a stray dog in Spain and has had a rough life before I adopted him and I need to “fix” his old knee and his teeth.

The magazines are REALLY rare and hard to find. Hardly ever get up on sites such as eBay or so. If you want to support me and my dog and get a great collection please contact me at my mail. I hate to have to sell my collection but of course my doggie comes first.

And you can make a “bid” for what you want to give for the clippings and I can put up an auction on eBay for it if you want to.

– You might know me from have had fansites on Fairuza since 2000, on domains such as fairuza-balk.com and fairuzabalk.org and I have the fanlisting.

A personal letter from Fairuza

I have to say, seeing Fairuza enter the social networks and opening her own, proper website has been fantastic. Finally, we get a glimpse into her life and what she’s up to, and not only that, we can even communicate with her about it, and her with us. The days of having a staff of people answer hand-written letters is long past, and just shooting off a question or comment to on Facebook or Twitter is the new reality.

That said, Fairuza is, perhaps, a sentimentalist. You’ll know that I ordered the limited edition copy of her new single a few weeks back, but what you may not know is that the printing is running a bit late (Ru admitted to being a bit of a perfectionist). So what does Ru do? Tweet it? Blog it? No, she sent me a beautiful, hand-written letter in an equally beautiful, hand-sealed envelope.

The envelope first came in another, bigger and more anonymous white envelope, postmarked in California.

In the letter, Fairuza thanked me for ordering her record and expressed her wish to sometime get to visit the home country of Ingmar Bergman (the famous Swedish director). She also thanked me for supporting her work and her artistic¬†endeavors. I hereby thank her for being such a thoughtful and caring person to send personal letters to fans in this manner, when she no doubt has tons of important stuff to do already (I also made sure to thank her on Twitter), and I’m absolutely certain if she only had the addresses, she’d thank everyone in this community for continually supporting her.
