It's time to update this thingy :/

This is an announcement, most of all. I have tried to be pretty active on this site this past half year, and I think I've managed quite well. I regret to inform that now it's time for half a year (if not more) of not being that active D:

Finland still has conscription, and I'm a man of the ripe age, so I'll be dragged into some boring military service :(

I won't be uploading as much during this period of time, but I'll do my best to upload some of my older compositions, as I still have like 20 laying around on my computer. Alas, the quality will not be as good as it has been as of late, I fear.


It's really a shame, but the collaboration I was working on with former Elitistinen, now known as *secret* will have to wait for a while. We've done some good progress, but none of us seem to have collaborated much before, and we've both been busy people lately. He with Arma, and now I'm joining the army o.O

It's a fun piece, but it won't die away just like that. There will come a time for finishing it too. It's not the greatest song ever, but I think many of you'd like it ;)



Anyway, if you want something longer to read, you can always read my newest blog post, about the same subject (of me not wanting to be drafted).


Before I go, here's one last good composition (for a while!) for those who have not yet heard it.

As usually, I'll also leave a picture, but as I have not really drawn anything, virtual cd cover art it will once again be.




Red and black go well together. Black looks fine with almost any color.



Oh, and also; you can still message me and leave reviews etc.; my inbox is not even nearly full, and I just bought a new phone which is actually usable, so I'll reply whenever I can!

Have fun while I'm away, all of you! :'D

Aw, man...this is crazy! I can't imagine having to go into the military for 6 months when you reach a certain age! :O Of course, I do live in a country with 2.3 million army members anyway....
I'll try to respond to your PMs soon, btw, LSD. I've just been busy with work, prep for next year's classes, etc. So...you'll be back by next February or so? Oh my God, that's a long time...I'll have sent in all my college applications by then! AHHHHH!!! Anyway, hope you stay safe out there and find friends that make the experience go by faster. I'll be looking forward to your return, that's for sure! Man...this is just...crazy. Okay, I'll see you later LSD... :'(

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Yeah, it kinda does suck. I'm not home at the moment; I'm spedning my final days of freedom (though I have to make 6 short tracks [ about 30 sec loops] today) at our summer cabin. Still, my new phone works quite well, and the 3G internet is much better than in my previous phone. I probably won't be able to write long replies during weekdays, but I should be home most weekends.
If all goes well, I could actually be done in slightly more than five months! That is, one week or so before christmas :)
If not, there are several more months I don't look forward to XD

I won't be away entirely. I'll upload stuff now and then, and I aim on reading everything that's sent to me, and replying to what I can.
Still, have fun while I'm gone :D
(3 more days to go, including today...)

Damn it, that humor. Sad humors. Will you be on Skype or NG? Perhaps both?

Have your freedom well spent. I really don't want to bother you much. Like, spend time with the family. Damn, I'm short on words to describe my emotion right now.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Yup, I'll be on both now and then, most likely. My new phone seems to be a magical device compared to the rock that tried to be smart I had earlier!

I'll certainly do my best with my freedom! XD
After all, this is not the end, just a hiatus :p

Oh, and you can always bother me all you want, baby ;)

Good luck in the army! Stay safe! (even though the closest thing Finland's done to a war in the last fifty years is create epic battle music like Nightwish)

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Hahha, thanks!
Yeah, Finland hasn't been on bad terms with any countries in a while now XD
Turisas is great att battle metal too ;)

I'm sorry to hear that man. Good luck!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks Johnfn!

That's a shame, but I'll keep my eyes open for anything you put up. Anyhow, good luck for your time in the army! (hopefully try and have some kind of fun?)

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks adieuwinter!
It's not that great thus far, but hopefully it will get better :)

How is it? :O

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Have I somehow missed this comment?
Well, it could be much better, that's for sure :P
I don't really like the system at all, and I've gone and become sick (which doesn't mean you don't have to do stuff in the army, you just do them while you're sick, and get even more ill XD).
How are things going for you :)?

Pretty problematic for me. I've gone depressed and started to take meds again. Bad time. Music projects are piling up. I got so many stuff and haven't finish anything. Totally overwhelming.

Still, I'm still pretty lucky comparing to you XD. I've heard that army service this year is quite tough for some folks. Yeah, it's suck that we have to do the service. :( It's bad hearing you getting sick. Really hope you're gonna get better soon.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

That is truly a shame to hear :'(
I hope you'll manage to pull yourself out of the depression once the stress lessens. I understand that it can be very overwhelming indeed. Try to do your best of it, no one can demand more :/

I don't think you're lucky compared to me though, if anything, it's the other way around. Army service IS rough indeed, and I hate the organisation. Still, my mental health is not yet at stake (although sleeping only 1,5 hours out of 67 did have quite the effect on me...).

I have a weird genetic disease (a type of asthma), so I probably won't get well soon. In fact, I'll robably be sick the entire time I do service. Oh well, I've been sick for more than half a year before, so I think I can take it :)

Really, I hope for the best in your future! Good luck with all the work!
