4:20 am. Never written a journal before on dA. Feeling the urge to write one.
So well Hey there
As the title already gives away, it's about Linkin Park's new album "A Thousand Suns" that's coming out 14th September.
Listening to "The Catalyst" and "Wretches & Kings" really shows that they have a new sound. It's more eletrical with many unique distorted sounds and not as heavy as they used to be.
The most people I know didn't really like those 2 songs with their new sound.
Am I also disappointed ? No. Definitely not.
I like their new sound, just takes some time to get used to it
Also, I already have my tickets for their concert in Stuttgart(GER), on which they will, ofcourse, perform alot of stuff off their upcoming album A Thousand Suns
Me being a huge Linkin Park fan i just had to preorder the album, so i checked their site. Looking through all the stuff you could preorder i came across:[link]
* Custom-shaped, hand screen-printed skate deck
* Signed by the band
* Quantity of 1000
* Instant download of "The Catalyst" & "Wretches and Kings"
* A high quality MP3 version of the album delivered on 09.14.10
The important thing about it that really made me wanna get it and hang it on my wall was "Signed by the band" and "Quantity of 1000" !
The bad thing was, i didn't have the money at that time, so i had to wait 2-3 weeks and the chance of getting one of 1000 sank obviously low.
I wuz sad
A few days ago i finally had the money tho, and i simply ordered it, hoping to actually get one . . .
And like 2 hours ago, at around 3 am I did get a email named "# Shipping update on Linkin Park Limited Edition Skate Deck" and i thought it would say that they don't have one left for me
but than ... BAM W00T WIN
Thank you for pre-ordering the Limited Edition Skate Deck package of Linkin Park's new album, A Thousand Suns from a linkpark.com. We just received the skate decks and are now in the process of signing them all for you while we rehearse for our upcoming tour of South America and Europe. [...]"
Even with 2 pictures inside, of 'em actually hand-signing all 1000 decks [link]
(Phoenix ain't looking real happy, but i wouldn't either if i had to hand-sign 1000 decks
Just had to put it out there ! ^^
