Site Blog



Never short of a willingness to pontificate on a variety of Kiss-related topics, this "blog" will be little more than my random thoughts on no particular schedule. I may discuss a new product, audio recording, or just let you know what's going on with the site.



Wednesday, December 31, 2014 04:21:13 AM - Progress...
As the year ends the great migration doesn't exactly feel like it has made the amount of progress I'd hoped for in 2014. 4,849 have been migrated from the FAQ, a process that'll continue next year until that site is emptied...

Monday, April 21, 2014 5:22:09 PM - US Casablanca Singles box set...
Added large scans of the vinyl covers and singles from the 2012 "Casablanca Singles, 1974-82" box set, HERE.

Friday, April 18, 2014 7:08:03 AM - Touring: Country-by-country...
Tour archive continues to receive work... Added a touring by country section. Error checking always appreciated!

Monday, March 24, 2014 4:27:20 AM - Chronology...
Chronology migrated from the old site. Nothing to celebrate with a quick read through it. Updating needed!

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 4:25:35 AM - "Farewell" tour stats finished...
Finished updating and revamping the "Farewell" tour section: http://www.kissmonster.com/tourdates/2000/2000.php...

Sunday, February 02, 2014 8:00:12 AM - Another section completed...
Interview migrated. If you haven't, check 'em out at http://kissmonster.com/interviews/. There's some good stuff there and you might learn something!

Thursday, January 02, 2014 6:15:43 AM - Happy New Year...
Work continues on the migration. And updates. Several hundred MBs of live show samples added to the tourdates archive. Currently working in the era 1973-9 as I also clean up old files off varios servers...

Tuesday, November 05, 2013 3:24:15 AM - Knee-deep in discography...
3,620 pages updated manually. Knee-deep in the discography sections which means scanning, ripping, and more lyrics and song-stories. Argh...

Sunday, October 27, 2013 6:01:16 PM - Lyrics still going...
Nothing more soul-destroying than transcribing the White Tiger lyrics...

Thursday, October 17, 2013 5:07:52 AM - Lyrics...
Still plodding through the lyrics section. Brutality, I'd forgotten how much fun this can be - especially now I want the "Song Stories" linked with each one...

Saturday, October 12, 2013 5:02:13 AM - Lyrics...
Going to try and get all of the lyrics migrated this weekend. Which also means ripping a bunch of new samples and pulling over the "song stories" pages too...

Monday, October 07, 2013 7:11:19 PM - Assorted pages...
Started work on migrating the singles pages. USA moved. Also trying to integrate some FaceBook stuff. Slow going...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 4:24:44 AM - Why?
What is KISS Monster? A spare domain, essentially, for testing an assortment of webbie-type things on a site hosted on an alternative service provider. It will ultimately serve as a transfer point for content that is being split off from the KissFAQ (to remove it from the pollution of the reputation of the messageboard). The project also allows all of that site content, stretching back to the 1995 to be re-evaluated. Some features that have long been missing will be restored as the site returns to the pre-discussion format.

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 3:56:23 PM - Tourbooks...
Updating the tourbooks sections to the new "look."
