Hydeist was first launched as nothing but a simple appreciation of Hyde on December 13, 2005 under the free webhosting site, GeoCities. The site mainly focused in showcasing photos of Hyde and lyrics from my well-picked songs from his albums and singles. As I add stuffs to the site, I’ve started adding information about the main subject. Thus, turning the simple portfolio into a shrine.
Some months later, I’ve stopped updating the mini shrine due to personal life and has been put up into hiatus until GeoCities finally closed up. Which happened to be a dreadful dismay and heartache to my part because I was stupid not to backup the entire website. So, apparently, I lost the important tidbits. Lucky me, I didn’t delete the pictures and the songs. Because of this, I was left to start from scratch, digging into my head and re-reading the resources I’ve had that time.
