20th August 2006
This is going to be the last collective update done in this style, details at the end of this notice. The Song of the Moment is Great Spirits from Brother Bear, there are two new movie clips in the video gallery, one from The Nutcracker Prince and one from The Rescuers Down Under.
Daring to Dream has new scans, fanart, a movie clip, a video cover addition to the anime page and a new link.
Everlasting Vow has new bloopers, new fanart and a submitted correction to the movie script.
Tiny Angel has another page of screencaps up.
The Waterfalls has the transcribed movie script up, along
with a few new scans.
So as I was saying, from now on there's going to be a marked difference in the way this website
collective will be updated. Due to some serious overhauls in my real life schedule, I don't think I
can maintain these collective and (sort of) monthly updates covering the main section of CBL
along with all four of its sub-sections all at once. So from now, instead of saving up updates and
sharing them all together once a month, I'll be updating in small chunks as they are
submitted to me or I get around to doing them. This means that submissions (eg. fanart and fanfic)
will be put up on the websites faster, but updates will be more unpredictable than before.
8th July 2006
Clear Black Lines is now affiliated with Foreign Disney Soundtracks a website about (you guessed it) foreign versions of Disney soundtracks. The song of the moment is now Sheryl Crow's Real Gone from Pixar's cars, there's more videos to be seen in the video gallery and there's a new minor shrine for Don Bluth's The Secret of NIMH. There's also a new poll.

4th June 2006
I've started work on a new section of the site, which is the Video Clip Gallery. It's still a tentative feature right now; I might scrap it if it becomes too difficult to take care of, so we'll see if it works out. For now I have a few official music videos up: Hercules's Shooting Star and Go the Distance, The Hunchback of Notre Dame's Someday, The Lion King's Can You Feel the Love Tonight, The Little Mermaid's Kiss the Girl, Mulan's I'll Make a Man Out of You and Reflection, as well as Space Jam's Fly Like an Eagle and For You I Will. If this works out, I may start adding movie clips and making-of clips to the gallery. Feedback and/or ideas on how I can improve this section would be greatly appreciated. :)
As voted in the yahoogroup, the new Song of the Moment is Forget About Love from The Return of Jafar. I've updated the links page to include the various extensions of this website, plus fixed the link to Alex's Fun Page.

22nd March 2006
The new Song of the Moment is It Is You (I Have Loved) from Shrek. I only recently got the chance to really listen to the song, and was surprised at how sweet and sincere the lyrics are, considering how tongue-in-cheek the movie to which it belongs to is. No new minor shrines this round; I just don't have time at the moment. Anyway, there's a new link to Meeko's Disney DVD resource site and Clear Black Lines is now affiliated with Cassie Brite's Rainbowland. There's a new fan essay about Aladdin by Laus.
Daring to Dream has new Disney trivia card scans and colouring pages up, a bunch of new fanart, a (rather bland) page for the Broadway musical, a page for the Happily Ever After version of The Little Mermaid and a new poll.
Everlasting Vow has new fanfic.
Tiny Angel has new images in the gallery and new fanart.
The Waterfalls has new fanart, a few scans from the official comic in the gallery, a few screencaps from the making and new fanfic by moi.
12th February 2006
The new Song of the Moment is Coco Lee's version of Reflection, the theme song of Disney's Mulan. This version was included in some of the Mulan soundtracks distributed in the Asia Pacific alongside Christina Aguilera's version. Coco Lee doesn't have Christina's strength, certainly, but I've always preferred Coco's sweeter vocals that suit the atmosphere of the movie better. The newest minor shrine is for Hugo the Hippo, a forgotten animated movie from the psychadelic seventies. I've also altered the about me page a bit and added a link to The Mouse Avenger's The Great Mouse Detective Fanfic site.
Daring to Dream has new images in the gallery, a new fanrant and guest comment for the Disney vs Anime vs Andersen thing.

7th January 2006
Wow, it seems that the site has survived into another year. I'm amazed, to say the least. Anyway, the new Song of the Moment is the theme from the Care Bears tv series. I'm not that huge a fan of the show (goodness knows I liked My Little Pony a whole lot more) but their theme was catchy... Even if I never understood the reason behind the "Care Bears countdown". There's also a new minor shrine for Oliver and Company, the faq has been updated and I've added two new links.
Daring to Dream has new fanart, a few new images in the gallery, my updated fanfic and another guest comment in the Disney vs Anime vs Andersen page.
Everlasting Vow has had its character page updated, another page of screencaps, two new submitted bloopers and a submitted fan eassay.

5th December 2005
After a 2+ month hiatus, I'm back! I've got a lot of emails to sift through and submitted stuff to put up, so anyone who's sent stuff in but it hasn't been included in this update, please email me. Clear Black Lines is also officially affiliated with Disney Princess, Tale As Old As Time and Disney Dreams. There's also a new poll up.
There's a new minor shrine for Gulliver's Travels, the aged filmmation classic that followed on the heels of Disney's ground-breaking Snow White. For this one time I've also put up four Songs of the Moment, just to make up for my being AWOL. These songs are In Harmony from the Little Mermaid television series, Let Me Be Your Wings from Thumbelina, Batty Rap from FernGully and Let Me Be Good To You from The Great Mouse Detective.
Daring to Dream has new fanart and a new scans in the gallery.

Tiny Angel has the full script up.

25th September 2005
Clear Black Lines is now officially affiliated with Distant Melody, the most awesome website dedicated to archiving forgotten children's lyrics. The new Song of the Moment is Big and Loud from Cats Don't Dance, as I'd realised that it's been a while since I've had a villain song up. Larger-than-life villain songs are my favs and this fits the bill quite nicely, with young Lindsay Ridgeway (as Darla Dimple) managing to hit a wonderful long note at the end. There's also a new minor shrine for FernGully.
Moving on. Daring to Dream has new fanart, a bunch of new scans, a new episode page and a new addition to the Other Mermaids page.
Everlasting Vow has a bunch of new screencaps, blooper additions and a few colour bars.
Tiny Angel has, um, been unfortunately neglected this time round.

This will be the last update until December, because real life's decided to interfere. Til then, toodles!
28th August 2005
The super-glitzy Disney Love is now an affiliate of Clear Black Lines. Yay!
The newest Song of the Moment is Lesson Number One from Mulan II. That number
(arguably a Mulan character song) was among the many things that took me by surprise in that
Disney sequel. Besides, Lea Salonga's sparkling voice is always a pleasure to listen to.
I've also added a link to Alram's gorgeous Beauty and the Beast
site, Bittersweet and Strange.
Daring to Dream has a new fanart, fanfic updates, new pictures, a new link, a new guest comment for the Disney vs Anime vs Andersen rant and a new addition to the Other Mermaids page.

Join, mingle, discuss. :)
6th June 2005
Summertime! I fiddled around with the layout of this main page, changing the scattered look for a more crowded one. The Song of the Moment is Let's Make Music Together from All Dogs Go to Heaven, as performed by the most awesome stage show actor Ken Page. (whee!) There's a new minor shrine for Balto, a review of Mulan II by Princess Reburta and a Kim Possible guest essay by nachonaco. I've also put up submission guidelines for people who might be interested in sending in their own reviews and/or fan essays. There's also a new poll.

Heh. It seems that a new feature on Clear Black Lines may be submitted fan essays. (Rawk!) Sadira's sent in her review of Jungle Book 2. In that vein, anyone else who's interested in sharing their thoughts about whatever movie, tv show, character or what-have-yous, feel free to submit them in. (Hmm. I might be getting in over my head here, but who knows).
Crysta and Zak have been added to the Kissing Place. I've also put up an incomplete page of acknowledgements for the wonderful people who've helped me with this site. Knowing my memory I've forgotten some people so I'll be adding on to the list as time goes by.

24th April 2005
The Song of the Moment is now the Rescue Aid Society anthem
from The Rescuers. The mp3 I have up is a movie rip, but still pretty good. I love the uninentional harmonies of the song, and how the different characters (especially Bernard and Miss Bianca) have their distinct styles. There's also a new poll.
Daring to Dream has new fanart, new icons, a new guest essay and a couple of lyrics added.
Everlasting Vow has new bloopers and new screencaps up in the gallery.

I've also added a link to my animation-themed livejournal, in case anyone's curious.
7th April 2005
I usually prefer to wait a while and gather as much new stuff as possible before I post an update, but with the way classes are going at the moment (ARRR!) a large update may not be possible for quite a while. And it's not fair for the wondeful people who've been sending in their fanart and deserve to have it up and admired by all to see as soon as possible.
So here I am, with a site update consisting solely of submitted fanart. In chronological order, April has a new piece of Little Mermaid art, Jarreth has a new piece of Little Mermaid art, Ericka has a new piece of Swan Princess art, and Lucy has a new piece of Thumbelina art (which is really a doll).
PS. Oh, I forgot! I've also updated the links page with some spiffy new websites I've found!
27th March 2005
The new Song of the Moment is Run Llama Run. Oh all right, it's not a song, it's an instrumental track, but I love it anyway. It's the awesome swing number used in the crazy chase scene of The Emperor's New Groove. I've also put up a minor shrine for The Great Mouse Detective and added two more images of Odette and Derek to the Kissing Place.
Daring to Dream has a new fanart, a new poll, new icons, a new episode page and new wallpapers.
Tiny Angel has a new doll, an alternate version of an old doll and a new animated gif.

Everlasting Vow has 100 new screencaps in the gallery.
24th February 2005
As some people may or may not have noticed, Clear Black Lines was down for a couple of weeks. Turns out my very awesome host, Mell, had some miscommunication problems with her server host and the site went under. But all's turned out all right in the end, and I've managed to get all parts of the website back up bit by bit.
The Song of the Moment is now Home is in Your Heart, a typically cheerful Care Bears number, from The Care Bears Movie. There's also a new minor shrine for A Goofy Movie.
There's a new poll, and I've added a new link to a site with some awesome fanart, Disney Bubbles.

PS. Everlasting Vow now has a gallery with 100 screencaps and more to come.
14th November 2004
The new Song of the Moment is Once upon a December, a beautiful number that highlights what is hands-down the best scene from Anastasia. (For me, anyway.) There is a new minor shrine for one of my favourite animated movies, Cats Don't Dance. I've also added a link to one of my favourite collector's sites, Dream Valley.
Daring to Dream has a new episode page as well as a little bit more stuff about another silver screen mermaid.

26th September 2004

Me <---- very tired, because classes have just started. Oh well.
22nd August 2004
Eeek! It's Clear Black Lines' third birthday! *happy dance*
The Song of the Moment is now Right Back Where We Started From, as performed by the girl band Cleopatra for the soundtrack of An Extremely Goofy Movie. The original is a different sort of disco funk, but this pop cover really makes me just want to jump out of my chair and dance. (Which is what I did, really, when I heard it for the first time during the end credits of that movie.) I've also added three new links to other sites.
Daring to Dream has new fanart, new fanfic, new icons and a new episode page up.
Far Longer Than Forever has hereby been renamed Everlasting Vow, so not to confuse it with another site with the previous name. In terms of actual updates, there's a new submitted blooper and new lyrics.
Tiny Angel has two brand-spankin' new dollz.
The Waterfalls has a new batch of scans added to the gallery, and two new chapters of Lindsey's fanfic.
21st July 2004
The Song of the Moment has been changed to the theme from the most rockin' 80's cartoon Jem and the Holograms, of which I was a tremendous fan. (It's showtime, Synergy!) There's also a few new additions to the Kissing Place, thanks to the caps sent in by Sarita and a new minor shrine for the Christmas animated feature The Nutcracker Prince.

New minor shrine for the relatively unknown Disney tv movie Fluppy Dogs. There's a new link to Wendy's Neverland, a site dedicated to Wendy Darling from Disney's Peter Pan, and the Song of the Moment has been changed to The Plagues from The Prince of Egypt, Powerful, awesome and with eerie background vocals, its my favourite piece of the whole movie soundtrack. I have a thing for epic-worthy choruses, I guess. Oh, and I also brought back an old poll for another go.
Daring to Dream has a new episode page, two new wallpapers and a new quiz.
Tiny Angel has a has yet another batch of new submitted screencaps.
Far Longer Than Forever has a new submitted blooper.

27th March 2004
New link, to extensive animation resource Keyframe Online. The Song of the Moment has been changed to the new version of Circle of Life by the Disney Circle of Stars that was released alongside the Platinum version of The Lion King. Very interesting mesh of voices, right there. Included are Hilary Duff (from Lizzie McGuire), A.J. Trauth and Christy Carlson Ramono (from Even Stevens), Raven, Annaliese Vander Pol and Orlando Brown (from That's So Raven), Kyla Pratt (from The Proud Family), and Tahj Mowry (from Smart Guy).

6th March 2004
New poll, new minor shrine to The Emperor's New Groove, and the Song of the Moment has been changed to the Tale Spin Theme from Tale Spin. However, the version that I've uploaded here is the longer Sunday matinee version. Still, it is pretty cool, and my second fav Disney series opening after Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers.
Daring to Dream has a few new guest opinions on the Disney vs Anime vs Andersen page, a page for the Fairie Tale Theater version of the story, and a new chappie of Prince of Myth's fanfic. Far Longer Than Forever has one new submitted blooper. Tiny Angel has some dollz added to the misc section.
