Collection Updates

Thanks to donations from anonymous contributors, friends and Awesome Retro’s Donation December a lot of new facts emerged. This is what you see above. Even seemingly duplicate releases appeared to open a new chapter in the Twilight history. The collection on the todo page has been updated since CD 1, 2, 5, 48, 49 and 51-56 have been donated. We’re still missing a stack of cd’s and a single DVD.

To make donations easier, a donation page has been created.
