6. Main page: twitter feed & site map added
7. History: now updated up to 2013 and what will happen this year, re-worded some of the old history and added more photos
8. Members: improved main page summarizing each member, added small profile on another regular guest musician, added more artwork for albums band members like, added info for guest appearances each member has made, updated equipment info for Atsushi (pic on drums), Hisashi (many guitars), Hide (many guitars), & U-ta (many basses)
9. Releases: updated to the very latest release and guest appearances, added more credits for side projects
10. Media: updated magazine covers, tour merchandise, fan club stuff, updated Mac OS X B-T history widget up to 2012 activity

Buck-Tick Zone update/revamp todo list! (so close, I can taste it..and it's delicious)

1. releases: books, scan dust jackets? (maybe obi too)
2. members: update Hisashi/Hide guitar info (scanning today!)
3. what the hell are you gonna do with the front page stuff?!?!! (haven't thought about it, will keep avoiding)
4. upload all files and announce the site has been updated and has new address
shit that can wait until after relaunch:
5. screen cap video releases, including 5 music videos
6. releases: include tab books? add more details for fish tank only videos?
7. history: possible rescan very early years

The main thing I have to do is update Hisashi and Hide's guitar info. Today I'm scanning the Guitar Archives book that was released last year. Then I just gotta make some small decisions on how the main page and some of those sub-pages appear and I'll feel comfortable to let it all be open to the public. There's more updates to do but that can come later. This has definitely taken way longer than I thought it would.

Thought I'd get a lot more done today since I had to take the day off so a repairman could give my home heat again (it doesn't snow but it's cold) but ended up doing errands/chores instead. Realized I don't think I archived all the merchandise that B-T has been offering and now I'm kinda dizzy trying to remember exactly for what did they first release the I (heart) B-T stuff, etc.

It's the 23rd anniversary of my first concert ever. (It was Buck-Tick, of course) So why am I staring at a screen, wide-eyed, lacking sleep? cuz. just cuz. Now that I can cross some things off the list, I can go to bed, good night!
