Posted in Entertainment, Inspiration, Life, Love, Music, Rock N Roll, Videos with tags , , on December 31, 2011 by darkjade68

Well, upon Reflection… 2011 was a Good Year… Yes, I lost a relationship that I would have rather of not… But, I did return to Writing, which has been an Extremely Fulfilling Experience

That Said, Lets get to the Festivities…

And what better way than with one of the Best Rock Bands of our Time… U2


lol, Hilarious… I had actually forgotten they had a song called “New Years Day“… I’m a pretty Hard Core Fan, eh

With or Without YouMy Favorite U2 Song for Years

Wow, that was a Pretty Damn Cool Video… I’ve never seen it

All I Want Is You

Wow, didn’t realize Bono was so “Audience Participation” Oriented… Pretty cool

Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For (Bruce Stops by)

Oh NO!! Metallica Snuck In!! Eh, Somehow, I’m ok with that, lol

U2 and Metallica

It’s A Beautiful Day – Love This Song

One – One of the Best Songs ever Written

Did I disappoint you… Or Leave a Bad Taste in your Mouth…

You Act Like you Never Had Love… And You want Me to go Without

Some of my Favorite All Time Lyrics

You Say  Love is a Temple, Love a Higher Law

Love is a Temple, Love The Higher Law

You Ask Me To Enter but Then you make me Crawl…

And I can’t be holdin’ on to what you got…

When all you got is hurt

And Now I shall Leave you with this… I hope all of you have a Safe, and Happy New Year

u2 Unforgettable Fire

Thanks for Chillen with me

See You in 2012

Under The Weather – DarkJade Update

Posted in Blog Series, Captain Fire 197, Dark Rider, Editorial, Entertainment, I Died Once, Novel, Poetry, The Mind with tags , , on November 29, 2011 by darkjade68

I think I’m fighting something off today, so I decided to just Chill a bit…

So what better time for a DarkJade Update.



The Written Word;

I recently completed my Writing Project (Novella) “I Died Once“, or I.D.O.

When I sat down to Write the Final Chapter, that wasn’t actually my Intention… But I have been feeling that the Climax was nearing, and when Pen hit Paper that day, that is surely what occurred.

I haven’t gotten a lot of Feedback on it as of yet, but during it’s run it got Several “Likes”, and the Readers that did Follow it, had Positive things to say about it, as well as it’s Ending. So this left me feeling very good… Especially since I’ve never completed a Novel, or in this case, a Novella before.

Though it’s only a very rough first draft, as I merely sat down, wrote a chapter, and posted it… No Editing as of yet. But at some point I will pick it up again, probably Edit/Fill it out a bit more myself, and then finally get it into the hands of some people for Actual Editing and/or Opinion. Thank you to all of you that did check it out during it’s run.

Blog Series;

Dark RiderI’ve had a lot of fun Writing The Dark Rider Series, and so it’s likely to keep going for a while. In fact, I have the latest Episode of it sitting in one of my Four Notebooks right now… Once I’m feeling a bit better, I will be posting it.


Captain Fire 197; Captain Fire 197 has also been fun, though I find there are periods where I set it down for a week or so, until something just hits me and the next Episode or two comes. I for see it being around for a bit.







Sleeper; I gave a Spy Series called Sleeper a few goes, but there didn’t seem to be much interest, and as many different things as I’m Writing, I end up needing to be a bit selective sometimes as to what I put my time into.


New Series – The Mind Chronicles; I’ve really had a lot of fun with this Series… And the Initial Volumes of it have just flown out of me. So far I’ve had a couple “Likes”, and Comments, but am looking forward to hearing how people like this Series.







Scribblings/Poems; I originally started Writing some Poetry back when I started the Blog on August 18th, but slowly started to veer away from itSuprisingly, I have as of late been returning to Writing some more… I’m also currently having my First 14 Poems Edited by my Oldest Sister (Who is a Beautiful Poet, and quite good in English, which I’m not), and looking to potentially Self Publishing them into a Simple Little Book. We shall see how that goes.

The Dark Globe; My 3rd Blog The Dark Globe, which I started back at the end of October, has gone quite well… We currently have 6 Contributing Writers, and 1 Contributing Photographer… There are also a couple more Writers that have signed on, who may Contribute at some point.

We recently received the Versatile Blogger Award over there, and I have shifted my Film Reviews, and many of my Editorials to that Blog. As much as I consider myself a “Creative Writer”, I also have a strong passion for “Journalism”. The Dark Globe has been an Excellent Outlet for that part of my Writing.

One Knight; My 2nd Blog, One Knight (Site), has gone quite well as well, at least as far as Productivity is concerned… I have completed over 12 Chapters on my One Knight (The Novel), and My Guest Writers Pdk The Writing’s of Pdk and Pete Insanity’s Ascension have been busy as well.

Anyway, that’s enough for now…

I want to thank all of you that Follow The Written Word, as well those that Follow The Dark Globe and One Knight Sites.

I Truly do Appreciate all of your Support, and/or Interest in mine, and the Artists that I work with… And look forward to Writing On…

The Halls of the Written Word

Posted in Inspiration, Poem, Poetry, Scribblings, Story, Writers, Writing with tags on October 10, 2011 by darkjade68

I am Woken by a warmth against the back of my leg, and the screeching sounds outside my door…

Without thought, I quickly look to my left where I am met by a Great and Glorious Light… I wince

Oh how Thee Morning Sky doth Wake at the Beckoning of this Bird’s Crow…

And so I Awake… Unwillingly, and yet Obedient to My Inner Voice… That which I Cherish so

As I take my first few steps, I stagger, and rub mine Eyes, and reach for the doorknob of my Chamber Door

Outside my Eyes pierce left then right, for who knows what Creatures lie forth

But on this Morn, I am Alone

As I make my way beyond the Darkness, and to Our Place of  Imagery, I take a sudden left

Awaiting me are Robust Trees, Follying as they Sway

Oh how the Black Birds Chirp, and Tap their Talons, in anticipation of the forthcoming

As I love them, I shall pay them no mind

As I sit, Before Me is the Deep Red, Bejeweled Box, of Winter, Lust and Wonder

Oh what Light We’ve seen these many Nights, although to some It Be Day… For me, Forever Night

My hands come out, Mine Eyes do Gleam, at what may come…

My Mind a Keen Descender…

It Opens Forth, a Wind Comes out

It’s Warmth does draw me in…

Light, Coulours, Song, and Scene…

I Find I cannot Breathe

What Candor, What Nerve

What unbeknownst Verve

Will Guide me thorough these Woods

I Drink Cool Water, I Eye the Storm

Begin the Written Word
