About Ivan

Q: Can you tell us about yourself?
A: Well, my name is Ivan Freire, I'm from Quito, Ecuador (South America), I'm 20 years old. I became a t.A.T.u. fan in 2003, when a classmate let me hear Not Gonna Get Us, and it is my favorite t.A.T.u. song till now.

Q: When did you begin collecting?

Q: What merchandise do you collect?
A: I mostly like CDs. But my dream is still to have some vinyls, cause they are so rare. But I love every kind of items, even fanmades cause there are things so creative about them, but CDs are more easy to get.

Q: How many items do you own?
A: I haven't counted them, but there is more than 100 CDs, 9 cassettes and 30 other items in apparel, magazines, etc. I'm a very disorganized person, but my t.A.T.u. stuff has its own section for itself.

Q: What is the rarest item you own?
A: Well, I can't define the meaning of a rare item, cause maybe the girls could sign your favorite non t.A.T.u. item, or your hand, or a simple piece of paper, and it could be so special to you. But I especially love the D&M and Happy Smiles poster that they signed with my name. And referring to other items, I think that the TRUTH DVD or 30 minutes single in my colletion are the hardest to get.

Q: What was the first item you purchased?
A: 200 KM/H in the Wrong Lane Colombian edition. Thanks to it, I could see t.A.T.u. kiss for the 1st time.

Q: What items do you want to purchase?
A: As I said, I'd love to buy some vinyls starting in March. I'm always curious to know about the contents of those rare books, like the Story of ATTSS or the Russian Book Podnesbenaya. And also, for sure I'll buy everything possible from the solo careers of Yulia and Lena.
