Heya and aloha guys! TheDarkOfNight-D or Dil here with another journal!
=============================================================================================NEWS FROM THE LIFE OF D (Dil):
Well, how's everyone doing? And what's up, everyone?
'Kay, so I've been doing swell so far, we're well into August and already I have a mesh of busy days and lazy days. On those lazy days, you KNOW I'm working on new material. However, I'll live, and my mellow self will drag me right on through! So, yeah! As well, anyone looking for PSN IDs or so on? Mine's NeonYuna626
, so if you wanna add, go right ahead! As well, if anyone has a Wii or 3DS and wants to add me to a game or their system, just ask!
So first thing's first, on some news; there was a recent "TRON Uprising" marathon that aired a few days back on the U.S. Disney XD stations that revealed a pivotal piece of information as to why there's a TRON drought. It revealed that new episodes of "TRON Uprising" will not be starting back up until October. Now, while I do love the news, I think that this is a long wait for new TRON eps, especially since the next two were supposed to be the long-awaited and ill-fated "Scars" two-parter. Kind of a downer, since we're only seven episodes in and we're already getting a delay. Seems like planning gone weird on Disney's end.
I digress though; something that WILL pass the wait for everyone is that if you follow Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, you'd be happy to know that the new season of "Once Upon A Time" is set to premiere next month on September 30th. That means, if we're not trying to pass the time to new TRON episodes, we can pass the time to new stories in Storybrooke. I await both pretty heartily.
Speaking of things being awaited pretty heartily, some of you may have heard the news that Joel Zimmerman, or deadmau5 has revealed his new album out next month. The album is called "> album title goes here <" and is set to be the follow-up to his previously popular album "4 x 4 = 12". Now, what makes this album big is the tracks that are being included; not only are some long-awaited mau5 classics being thrown into the album, but we're also getting collaborations with Wolfgang Gartner (i.e. "Channel 42"), Chris James (i.e. "The Veldt"), Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance (i.e."Professional Griefers"), and even Imogen Heap (i.e. "Telemiscommunications"). The album's set to release next month on September 25th, alongside a slew of other albums like Green Day's first new album shot "Uno!", Mumford & Sons new album "Babel", and Disney's "Frankenweenie Unleashed" compilation. Needless to say, I'm excited for mau5's new album; as an EDM listener, I know I'm gonna be treated to something big and built. Either way, hopefully it doesn't take too long to arrive!
Final thing, back when I was getting the solid "KINGDOM HEARTS 3D: Dream Drop Distance", which I will still say to this day is a solid game (and I still need to get back to it after I finish "KINGDOM HEARTS: Birth By Sleep" on the PSP), I also pre-ordered the newest Disney romp and continuation. That being "Epic Mickey 2: The Power Of Two". Now, if you've been following this sequel, you'll know it's not just hitting it's original Wii station, but other systems like the 3DS, the XBOX 360 and the Playstation 3 and so on. I went ahead and took the liberty of pre-ordering it on the Wii and the 3DS. The game looks to be an evolution beyond the original game; as not only do you have the dialogue of the story reappraising itself as a musical rather than a silent cartoon, but you also have your half-brother Oswald the Lucky Rabbit helping Mickey out. However, the 3DS version is a different plan, as the game features a plot that lends itself to old SEGA Genesis classic "Castle of Illusion", where Minnie Mouse gets kidnapped by evil witch Mizrabel, and Mickey must travel about into other worlds (this time Disney worlds) in order to beat the evil witch and rescue Minnie. Both games are set to come out November 18, and if the original "Epic Mickey" is such an amazing romp as it was, these sequel games could be totally overtaking.
And aside from that, I'll get back to you with some more news in a new journal sometime in the new week, as usual.
Anyways, I hope things are going well with everyone else, because they are with me!
=============================================================================================="ALBUM OF THE WEEK" SECTION:Artist: The ProdigyAlbum: Invaders Must DieRelease Year: 2009
This week's Album of the Week
is the most recent album by big beat legends and electro historians The Prodigy
. After the lackluster album "Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned"
dropped the group off various labels and didn't do so hot in record sales; five years later, the group made a comeback with not only a new label known as Take Me To The Hospital, but their most recent effort to date (beyond remixes) "Invaders Must Die"
. The new album took the group back to their roots and infuses a lot more into the group's tunes than ever before. The album delivers a hard-hitting electro edge, while still keeping to the group's true breakbeat stylings. Singles from the album include the title track, "Invaders Must Die"
, a song that won "Best Single" at the 2009 Kerrang! Awards, "Omen"
, powerful track, "Warrior's Dance"
, and a song named coincidentally after the group's label, "Take Me To The Hospital"
. Other honorable song mentions include "World's On Fire"
, "Run With The Wolves"
(a song the group did with Dave Grohl on drums), and "Colours"
. With the group set to release new album "How To Steal A Jetfighter"
sometime in the future, it's best to look into this album as a starter for what you're truly getting into. Chances are, you won't be disappointed.Previous Album of the WeekArtist: Zedd

And yeah; just a few. I'll be updating them as the journals go along. And help out if you can by giving some exact days, maybe. ^_^
===============================================================================================ART / STORY NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Alrighty, some art and story news comin' down! Well, so far, progress has FINALLY been made on some writing; personally on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" short story that I'm doing for *KomyFly
. It's only 5 pages in, but it's set to be a swashbuckling tail (after the next 2-3 pages finish up in the next while). However, you guys won't be peeping at it just yet, as soon as it's finished it's going to be sent straight to Komy, so... yeah; best expect it when it becomes comic form. As for my other works; I've got that "Stitch! Short" to work on, and then the start of long-awaited "Stitch! ~ Crossed Timelines" will finally arrive alongside the start of my original Disney tale, "AQUOS". As for "TREASEARY", no progress has extended beyond uploading the soundtrack, so sooner or later, character material and such will be produced before writing commences. Other than these; I'd say to expect some new writing material soon. However, it might be difficult as I have a 4-day stretch of work in the next few days, so that might hinder progress for a few days. However, it's gonna be steady as it goes, so expect new stuff soon guys!
In addition; I got some collabs I'm doing as well, mainly writing ones at the moment. Some are huge projects of mine; while others I did specifically as collaborative efforts with others. You'll see them in my writing schedule under my side projects. So, anytime you guys wanna try and write a collab together, come at me with an idea and maybe we can try it out? Or maybe you can hit me up for an RP sometime too; I do those as well. Either or; the more the merrier, and I'm always up for a collab; be it art or writing!
