The last lingering things I need to do to make B-T Zone fully up to date:
1. update releases: include tab books (done)
2. history: possible rescan very early years (can't find the photos, one day I will declutter and organize all this shit)

Leaving for a little vacation. Hope all goes well.

In Buck-Tick we trust.

The last lingering things I need to do to make B-T Zone fully up to date:
1. update releases: include tab books? at least add the fish tank only videos to fan club merch page
2. history: possible rescan very early years (can't find the photos, haven't looked again)

I added the Fish Tank only videos to the Fan Club merchandise listings as well as the Fish Tank 15th Anniversary tote bag. There's some merchandise from tours that may be missing. I will have to check my little folder of pictures to sort.

I am working on adding the tab books to the releases.

Those old photos I would like to re-scan, well it will be awhile until I find them if ever. I have other stuff to do besides tear apart the house.

I threw away some pop idol photos I've been holding onto since I was a kid. Need room for B-T stuff. I kept them in the same photo album that I keep B-T photos bought in Harajuku and after concerts. I recently threw away clippings of that pop idol too. Not sure why I was holding onto that stuff for so long!

The last lingering things I need to do to make B-T Zone fully up to date:
1. screen cap "Climax Together" music video (done!)
2. releases: include tab books? at least add the fish tank only videos to fan club merch page
3. history: possible rescan very early years (can't find the photos, haven't looked again)

I spent last night capturing Climax Together music video so that's on the site now. Also went through and re-worded some stuff and added sample photos of solo books (Sacrifice, Simply Life). Just noticed another thing I need to fix. This shit is never ending.

Personal thing to do: still need to sell my extra BT stuff! Why am I so lazy? I really need money for my European trip next month, especially now given that B-T just keeps releasing items.
I don't know why this never hit me until now but I just realized that Atsushi's gorgeous arms are not marred by vaccination scars! I cannot recall any B-T member showing off their arms and seeing such scars. Am I going crazy? I'm not at home so I can't go through my photos but surely I would remember such a thing. Prove me wrong and post a photo link in the comments.

In Japan and many other countries, it was or continues to be routine to vaccinate the population. Some of these cause noticeable scars. Every Japanese of a certain age clearly has scars on their upper arms. I grew up seeing these on my mom so I thought they were cool and the visual is associated with parental love for me. When I attended elementary school in Japan, I had the opportunity to get the vaccination. As much as I adore scars, I just didn't want to be marred so I opted out. I've met people from other countries with the same scars and when I see them, it makes me think they're cool and it sparks that parental love feeling in me.

Supposedly Japan has changed the vaccination so that it no longer leaves the giant hideous scar but smaller dots left behind by the needles (yes, multiple needles). I can't recall right now the visual of this scar, perhaps because it does not have as much of an impact. Right now, every arm that I can picture is very noticeably scarred.

The scars look like this:

.

I just feel like B-T is old enough to have the big scars. Why don't they? I must carefully search my photos at home. At least Toll should be old enough to have them. Or is it possible they were all able to opt out? Or is this another case of Okinawa being behind and the old school method continued on in Okinawa much longer than in mainland? My peers had the scars and we are younger than Buck-Tick.

Things I still need to do to make B-T Zone fully up to date:
1. screen cap video releases (in process) and "Climax Together" music video
2. releases: include tab books? at least add the fish tank only videos to fan club merch page
3. history: possible rescan very early years (still involves cleaning my room and finding the sources which I'm avoiding as long as possible)

Recently I added screen caps for several music videos over the past few years, (Heaven, Galaxy, Kuchizuke, Elise No Tame Ni, Miss Take), plus screen caps for the only video made for Dropz.
