My latest Acquisitions-Buck Tick movie and Single, Love/Steppers Parade



After a long couple of months waiting, I finally get to enjoy my latest acquisitions

Buck Tick The Movie-Buck Tick Phenomenon

Blu Ray Collectior’s Box, a triple disc set  in a  beautiful velvet bound box with some extras, like a set of beautiful two sided photo cards and a colour post card.

Also the latest B-T single, Buck Tick-Love Parade/Steppers Parade Limited Edition, 2 disc set with the bonus footage from the Live Concert at Tokyo Dome City Hall. I also got a Calender Poster with my order

Sort of nice to get all those little extras! 😀

The B-T movie and single are still available at HMV Japan, CD Japan and B-T webshop carries the BT movie too.


Day in Question 2013- Buck Tick’s year end Concert at the Nippon Budoukan



This blog went on a longer hiatus then I expected when I finally closed my Etsy store for a little down time during Christmas and New Year. Instead of some R&R, I ended being sick as a dog for the most part…so much for well laid plans…..

So this little post on Buck Tick’s DIQ 2013 is a little picker upper for myself….as I get to enjoy the live report of the DIQ 2013 from NotTheGreatest Site and sort of get to experience this concert albeit vicariously and also enjoy the DIQ 2013 tour goods which Cayce kindly purchased on my behalf


For BT fans here though NicoNico will be streaming the Koriyama performance of the  DIQ 2013 on Jan 24th at their site and there is a full week of B-T programmes starting Jan 18th to the 24th 2014 showcasing B-T’s concert performances which is still available to watch on NicoNico’s site


I am so looking forward to seeing one of the DIQ 2013 performance and can’t wait for B-T to annouce their tour dates for 2014 as I mean to realise my dream of seeing BT live this year! The hard work over last year’s jewelry season and even being awfully sick for more then a month will be well worth it…..




My Buck Tick Christmas tree……Happy Holidays Everyone!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

This is my Buck Tick inspired Christmas tree! 😀

Well, this year, the Bird & I was worked to the bones and we didn’t get the time to do any Christmas shopping.

When we downsized and moved into our little apartment, one of the things we had to let go off , was our 6 foot Christmas tree and all our Christmas decorations. We had made do with a tiny table top “potted tree” for the last couple of years, but this year we went and bought a 4 foot tree…still table top but it was a TREE. Unfortunately since Black Friday, the Bird & I was worked to the bones and I didn’t have time to get any ornaments for our tree…..

What I did have was my B-T guitar picks, and jewelry stuff…so I made these into my Christmas tree ornaments…..I made large glass cabochon charms of BT images, also inserted photo image of Sakurai-san into an “Angel” themed Christmas tree photo ornament….(didn’t have time to find another angel or a star….. rather unusual role for Sakurai-san but hey, he has the looks of an angel…rather decadent one but still……) also other B-T images into picture frame ornaments as well as photo images of my cats and ice cream and soda cup charms from my jewelry stash as ornaments…..

Hope you guys like my Christmas tree as much as I do!

Beautiful Atsushi Sakurai art by Dori Hartley

These are all artworks by Dori Hartley, fellow word press blogger and awesome artist!

Dori’s artworks of the gorgeous Atsushi Sakurai, vocalist of Buck Tick, j-rock band, one of the patriarch of visual kei in Japan is available now as postcards, notecards, journals, posters and other merchandise at her stores at



You can also visit her blog at http://www.hartleyworks.wordpress.com

I think anyone visiting my blog would definitely encounter photos of Atsushi Sakurai, especially since you can’t actually miss it, photos of Acchan being the background for my blog!

That I am a total fan girl of B-T and Atsushi Sakurai goes without saying. I love their music, the mad genius of Imai Hisashi, lead guitar, primary composer and backup vocals, Hidehiko Hoshino, 2nd guitar, composer and back up vocals as well as Higuchi Yutaka, bass guitar and Yagami Toll, drums and especially front man, vocalist and primary lyricist of the band, Sakurai Atsushi.

Not only does Sakurai have the voice to totally captivate me, the deepest, richest liquid baritone ever but he also has the particular looks to completely ensnare me!

A lot of times, it is said, beauty is in the eye of  the beholder but there are people who are born with that perfect symmetry of looks which adds up to good looks and then there are people who not only have the 2nd quality in abundance but also have that indefinable something that is charisma as well.

To me, Atsushi Sakurai has all that and more in limitless quantities and Dori Hartley’s renditions of Sakurai has captured that perfectly

Needless to say, I have purchased postcards , journals and poster from Hartleyworks depicting Sakurai and the quality of print of those works are awesome!

So, if you are a fan, you might want to check out Hartleyworks artworks of Atsushi Sakurai!



Happy Halloween! With my Favourite Vampire, Atsushi Sakurai of Buck Tick

What could be more appropriate on Halloween then 13th Floor with Diana?  Also especially from the music video “Romance”? A dark romance between a vampire and a mortal woman…..

In honour of this music video, I made this piece of jewelry….. a pendant with the image of Sakurai and a bottle of “vampire blood” which I will end up wearing tonight!
