Finally got around to making a new Googlemaps home icon. (Probably only visible on LJ.)

That's it. As you were.
teylaminh: (JC - Jonathan - facepalm)
Icon from "The Reconstituted Corpse" - the reason I didn't manage to see this exceedingly obvious development before now is because I only produced that particular screencap this afternoon...

Anyway. Yes. I kind of wish I'd made this much earlier when I was still updating about work-related stupidity...
teylaminh: (JC - melon - J/M)
I'm determined to do at least one per episode now. If inspiration strikes there may be more. I definitely want to start including some Killers lyrics, too, preferably off Battle Born but I'm sure there are other equally brilliant and relevant songs on the other albums.

This one is more silly than shippy. :D (I couldn't NOT use it, now, could I?) I especially like how both of them look very confused about the situation.

In other news: "The Three Gamblers" episode tag is FINISHED. As in, all the scenes are done, it has an ending, it pre-empts the in-between angstfic, IT'S ACTUALLY PROPERLY FINISHED. Now I just need to tackle that bloody Crooked Lane monstrosity and I'll have done the entire of series 3.

This means I have to post them somewhere, doesn't it? *wibble*

In other other, non-fandom news: today at work was bloody knackering. Cut for length. )

Okay, nothing else to see here. Over and out.
teylaminh: (NBC - tower light)
Just a quick reminder to myself to try and make one new icon per picspam as [livejournal.com profile] cloudsinvenice and I work our way through Jonathan Creek.

I already have an idea for "Jack in the Box" (the next one) and will probably look at the others tonight, although some may have to wait until I watch as there aren't many screencaps to choose from at present (more might be forthcoming as I watch the episodes!)

PS: I has a tumblr. It is the biggest, most distracting timesink IN THE UNIVERSE, but there are so many awesome fanstuffs on there it makes me desperately sad that it didn't exist in the early noughties when I had infinite amounts of studentesque free time. (It also makes Jonathan Creek almost look like it has a fandom that comprises people other than me!)

Anyway, add me if you're on there. I would say join, but you wouldn't forgive me. Over and out.

New Icon!

Perhaps rather predictable, and the first product of what will become the Serially Epic Picspam - the first occasion of which will appear this Sunday, hopefully, with my notes/review/flail of "The Wrestler's Tomb".

I think this icon might be in danger of being a little cheesy, but actually, I don't care. THEY ARE SO ADORABLE.

New icon!

This came out of comments on Facebook re: the epic crossover and my review of Dark Shadows.

I'm using this blank version, and here's the other version:-

The animation is a little fuzzy, as it's really hard to get decent animated icons under 40KB without losing a lot of frames / detail, but I'm actually really proud of how well it joins up (that was a happy accident).

The text is pink because of the mohair sweater, obvs. ;)

Both are free for the taking with credit, as ever.

I have reverted to my old Christine layout (based on the Heindel painting, "The End of Innocence") just because I'm still vaguely in Phantom mode despite FFN and its inherent fail...

It has been so long since I used this layout that (a) the picture had vanished from my hard-drive because I made it three PC's ago (I had to fetch it from my Photobucket account); and (b) it was still set up for my old 15" monitor.

I was supposed to be out for joint birthday work drinks this afternoon but as a migraine has been brewing all day and cocodamol succeeded only in monging me out for half an hour (thankfully work has been ridiculously quiet lately), I decided not to bother.

Tonight's task: find an interesting pumpkin design for carving tomorrow.

Over and out.
teylaminh: (Derren Brown - blank)
I meant to make these a week ago and have only just remembered. :P


Both quite self-explanatory, I think.
teylaminh: (SB - Norma - broken)
Seeing as I was sitting here at the PC, bored, but not yet quite ready for bed, I figured I might as well put Eni's birthday present to good use finally. :)

So, I now have a lovely Sunset Boulevard mood theme and Norma Desmond layout. (I was going to make it dark-text-on-white but when I previewed it, it didn't look as nice, so I switched it back to Eni's choice. I'll just have to train my eyes back to white-on-dark again. :P) Obviously all the pics are from the film, and it's times like this I wish there were more stage / tour production photographs available. I did scan the tour brochure but there's not much in there to go on. ;)

This reminds me, I never did finish my multi-fandom mood theme. One of these days I might get around to it, though obviously I've added some fandoms since it started. :D My old "words" theme did serve me well for a time and I was very proud of it, but a change, as they say, is as good as a rest.


Edit, seconds later: Hee, that expression is priceless. *cough* Sorry, you can expect several more edits like this when I am randomly amused by the screencap choice. :D
teylaminh: (Random - Oblivion wheels)
I almost forgot about this one... Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] commoncomitatus, who also chose the icons in question.

Icon Meme )

You don't have to take part if you don't want to...

I might do a lyrics meme later, though probably not for a bit as the PC just did its Angry Beeping of Doom again and I don't want to aggravate it... ;)

Icon Meme.

Stolen off a couple of people, though Eni did it most recently...

Icon Meme )

Nothing else to report. Waiting for my leave to start. That's about it.
teylaminh: (Default)
My time off is nearly over, with just Monday and Tuesday to go... I've not done very much with it other than cleaning and tidying and very little else...

This weekend, however, Eni came up to Birmingham and we inflicted various forms of televisual entertainment upon her, including Life on Mars series 1, the beginning of Jonathan Creek (as per my Cunning Plan to make her finish watching it and thus write me some fanfic, bwahaha), a couple of episodes of Flight of the Conchords and the entirety of The Trapdoor.

The latter was certainly an adventure. It posed several existential queries, a couple of random crossover casts, and there was even slash - disturbing and incredibly random slash.

As a result of this, and because Paul was watching the football, I decided to make some Trapdoor icons... I am also supposed to try and draw The Thing Upstairs from the various characteristics mentioned (he has several heads, three lumps on his back, several nostrils, wings, smelly feet, etc...) but that will have to wait.

Trapdoor Icons )

Anyway, tomorrow Paul and I are going to register with a new surgery and then hopefully going to see The Lovely Bones, with any luck without annoying talking people ruining the experience...

That'll do.

Layout Woe.

teylaminh: (Priscilla - Drag Crossing)
I had this brilliant idea to attempt my new Priscilla-themed layout, because I remembered many moons ago doing a temporary Rocky Horror layout wherein I used Component and managed to position a banner at the very top of the page, and subsequently drop all the component-y bits below the banner. So I made a lovely banner for my knew layout (it was humungous, though, in retrospect) only to discover that either (a) my memory of which layout I used is faulty or (b) they've stopped using that function these days.


As Eni is more than likely interested, I then turned my banner into a background, but now have no clue what to do with it. So for her benefit only, it's here.

Anyway, I've reverted back to my good old traditional Component layout for now. It's been a while.

I frelling hate S2. Always have and always will. I was happy learning S1 before they changed it. BAH.
teylaminh: (Priscilla - Drag Crossing)
In honour of seeing the show and in preparation for the write-up, which should be finished tomorrow, hopefully (it was crazy busy at work today), I have reverted to my good old Priscilla layout.

Tick/Felicia FTW!


Edit, 20.11 - except I'll probably make a new one as the picture is blurry from being resized last time, and tags don't show up in the only usable layout option. *resumes hating S2*

New icon.

Grah. Okay. So obviously the Most Haunted withdrawal has set in, at least in terms of those Bad And Wrong RP Ships. I really thought MH was the exception to the rule, but apparently not.

If anyone's not heard of Supersizers Go..., it's a BBC series wherein comedienne Sue Perkins and food critic Giles Coren are subjected to eating dishes throughout various periods of history - mostly disgusting. It's absolutely brilliant, not least because Giles Coren has no table manners (if anyone saw him the other week on The Great Food Fight, case in point) and Sue Perkins gets regularly drunk and makes an idiot of herself (such being the problem of drinking ale for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper...)

Er, anyway. For most of these endeavours they pose as a married couple for effect, and... yeah. Sorry. They bounce off each other really well, chemisty-wise, and the Inner Shipper is not exactly famed for her pickiness. :P Yes, I know she's a lesbian. I tried really, really hard to resist this one, I honestly did...

Soooo, there it is. Anyway, I need some kind of foodie icon for all my attempts at being all culinary goddess-y, and this icon has been brewing for a while.

You may all shake your heads desparingly now, and I'll go and hide in a corner.

On the plus side - it's not bad for 10 minutes hasty work. :P

PS: I might just have the teensiest crush on Giles Coren...
teylaminh: (Priscilla - Drag Crossing)
Firstly, here's that same old meme-thing, taken from Eni and Eve respectively:

If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Secondly, I owe a few hugs here and there, so: *HUG*

Thirdly, because I was re-reading old entries today in a fit of sheer boredom (there's been barely anything to do today; I also re-themed my journal to something more summer-y) and realised it's been a very long time, here's that guess-the-song-from-the-lyrics meme...

Rules: randomise your MP3-player of choice (I'm using Winamp), then post your favourite lyric from each song that comes up (trying not to include the title), then let your f-list guess the artist and song. There's normally a limit of 10-15 songs but I've been known to go as high as 30. ;)

Usually Eni and [livejournal.com profile] queenc2346 pwn this kind of thing between them, but anyway... here it goes:

Lyrics... )

Off you go, then. :P

Finally got around to scanning the UK tour brochure - yes, eight years later, go figure - and here is an icon to celebrate.

It's Faith Brown's Norma, from the end of Act One. There are several stunning promo shots in the brochure and this particular one was crying out to be iconised.

Further versions may come with different wording... this'll do for now. :)

Layout coming soon.

New icon.

Feb. 19th, 2009 10:16 pm
teylaminh: (TXF - PMP - dreams)

A "Post-Modern Prometheus" icon, because quite frankly, what else was I going to do? :D

At least I have an appropriate icon for the X-Posts now...

More to come at some other point - I have an idea for a mini-movie icon ("My fandom dances to Cher") and possibly some using episodes that are in colour - imagine! I'm a little out of practice at Photoshop, so it'll wait til I'm on leave.

Yayyy icon.
teylaminh: (Christmas - cookie)
Because it's Christmas, dammit, and I am going to try and make an effort now. Our tree is going up tomorrow and there will hopefully be a series of interesting photographs as a result (of the tree-building/decorating, and then some artsy macro shots...)

I will endeavour to make a new layout over the Christmas period, if my inspiration or energy ever return...


Oct. 30th, 2008 09:10 pm
teylaminh: (Photo - Wheel)
There are more macro photographs added to the album I linked yesterday if anyone wants to take a look...

In honour of the occasion, have some more icons. :)


I've uploaded the first three to use, and the fourth is saved to Photobucket presently. If you want to use them, credit in keywords, please, as the photographs are copyright me...
teylaminh: (Farscape - Stark - hidden talents)
Okay. Sandra sent this email around this morning which contained these bizarre - but funky - pictures of fruit and vegetables carved into sculptures and scenes. So, obviously, I decided to turn them into icons.

Some of the detail is lost in making them small enough for icons, but they're up for the taking anyway with credit to me as the icon-maker, even though I have absolutely no idea where the original photographs came from...


If you need any explanation as to what they're meant to be, just ask. ;) The jar in number 5 reads "No Cellulite", and I think 17 and 18 are my personal favourites... 17 would be perfect for Hallowe'en...

teylaminh: (Buffy - sanity)
This afternoon has been infuriating, for absolutely no reason whatsoever...

Firstly, at 1.45pm, the panic alarm at work went off. Our team's reaction to this was not, in fact, panic, but a sense of befuddlement. After about a minute we decided we should probably vacate the building, and someone from upstairs informed us to do so, but upon getting halfway down the stairs we were then informed that it was an electrical problem, and not, in fact, a bomb.

I left work at 3.50, when it was STILL GOING ON, on every single landing, with periodic bursts of 500 decibel siren occasionally piercing through in our office. By the time I left, my left ear (the one closest to the door) was actually starting to hurt.

The bus journey home involved the usual fare of insane driver + squawking children, though thankfully the latter was few and far between.

I got off a stop early to investigate possibly registering at the newly-opened shiny surgery on Vicarage Road, because mine is annoying. I am now of the opinion that all NHS surgeries are annoying, and hence understand why people go private. According to the NHS website listing for the surgery, they close early on Wednesdays, which is the main grip I have with my current surgery. They're as bad as banks, except actually worse, given they don't open on Saturdays either. LOOK, SURGERIES. YOU ARE A PUBLIC SERVICE. CLOSING EARLY MID-WEEK AND AT WEEKENDS IS NOT HELPFUL.

Anyway, it took me about five minutes to find their front door because it's hidden round the back and only has one nonsensical signpost, and nothing over their front door to indicate that it's their front door. When I eventually got inside, I discovered that you can only register on Mondays and Tuesdays at 1.00pm.

Could you possible make youselves any less work-friendly? I'm really beginning to think it might be easier to register with a GP in Birmingham City Centre if they are so content to be completely inaccessible to those of us who work full-time. Employed people get sick, too. Strange but true.

So that's that. I won't be bothering, most likely. This is the first surgery I've encountered where you have to register at a certain day and time and it's really bloody stupid. My old old surgery made me temporarily register at the reception desk when I was practically doubled over in agony because of my kidney infection and didn't even bat an eyelid.

It's the NHS, I suppose - you get what you don't pay for.

Add to that the fact that about 50% of the people I encountered on the streets today obviously thought I was invisible or made of air, as they seemed content to try and walk straight through me.

And obviously, still no sign of the bus pass. I should really phone them today, but sensibility dictates I should wait until tomorrow, as I'm really not in the mood to speak to some gormless phone-monkey when they should have sent the bloody thing about a week ago. *burns TWM headquarters*

I'm already annoyed with my Cabaret layout, also, so have reverted to a calming pink-coloured one in the interim whilst I make a new one.


Sep. 3rd, 2008 06:42 pm
teylaminh: (Cabaret - arms blank)
In honour of going to see the show tomorrow, I have reverted (temporarily) to my old Cabaret layout. When I am so inclined I will make a brand spanking new layout, possibly Jonathan Creek because I've been saying so for ages and I sort of promised [livejournal.com profile] thefleshfailure...

Haven't scanned flyer, it'll have to wait.

Have, however, cleaned kitchen surfaces properly (i.e. by moving things) - though not the floor or shelves - and now waiting for (a) Paul to return and (b) the towels to finish washing.

My hands are cold. The weather's been just plain weird today. I could see my breath at the bus stop this morning. :/

teylaminh: (Derren Brown - blank)
I think I'm finally happy with the layout. Tags visible, entry boxes not dominating screen, background picture visible, not scrolling and not tiled. Font good. All marvellous.

On getting in from work (6.00pm ish) I then spent the next hour and a half or so tidying up frantically. Hoovered landing (plus rug) and living room, dusted surfaces, and tidied the messy corner by the sideboard, which now contains wrapping paper, keyboard and music. Board games are now nicely piled beneath it and more accessible, and no longer in a bin liner. Also tidied the bedroom a bit, which is much easier these days since the move-around.

My back will probably be unforgiving tomorrow, though...

I kept thinking it was Friday today, from waking-up time onwards. Meh. I'd lost the will to live by 3.00pm, also, and naturally a load of urgent work came in at 4.30 when I was gearing up to go home. Still, at least my flex won't suffer for it now.

Hm. Hungry.


Jun. 11th, 2008 06:49 pm
teylaminh: (Derren Brown - Oracle)
Well. We have a vaguely Derren Brown-themed layout. Mostly pleased with it other than the fact that the bloody entry borders simply WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY in S2 for some ungodly reason. Annoying. And obviously, LJ "no longer supports" S1 any more.

Anyway. There we go. Gone for a slightly different colour scheme than my usual, also...

Edit, 23.07: It's now vaguely more presentable. Tabular Indent remains the only layout I can do what I want with, but it's temperamental and annoying. I will probably tweak it again at some other point. I completely fail to see the point of being able to make entry boxes transparent when the "blank" command doesn't work for, e.g. the header / sidebar. Rather defeats the purpose.

Ah well. Expect temporary fritzing and changes if you happen to wander over...
teylaminh: (Photo - Sunset orange)
Just five new ones to share. I made the latter four a few months back and forgot about them...

... ... ... ...

The first is mostly to be used on my food diary posts (which are not visible to the general public / friends as they are mostly for my own benefit) because I needed an icon for them. I may periodically use it on other random food-related posts as I don't have a foody icon anyway.

The other four, obviously, are icons I made from the various programme scans from Derren Brown's show back in March. I was going to put text on the first one but couldn't decide what to go for. I was going to have "good witch" but I think any text would detract from the cat-got-the-cream expression and ruin it. Besides, the other two are still quite apt. The last one is basically just a scan of the programme cover, and will probably end up as a default if I ever get around to layouting the other, bigger scans...

So, there we go. A rather boring entry of no consequence.

Beethoven's Missa Solemnis is really frelling hard work, although there are some very pretty bits of harmony in there. Beginning to see why Adrian gave us an extra four weeks to rehearse it; the concert's not until November... It's also ridiculously high, an awful lot of the time, and really horrible for the men. I know you were deaf, Mr Beethoven, but that's no excuse to bully the tenors. :P

Paul is out at some gig or another and will probably wake me up later. I should probably try and get an early night, even though it'll doubtless get interrupted...

New icon.

Mar. 8th, 2008 04:40 pm
teylaminh: (Random - Cheezoid)
A very silly icon based on Mitchell & Webb's 'cheezoid' sketch from Thursday night. It amused me far more than it should have done. :)

Possibly to be used on general silly posts, but mostly made because I am ridiculously amused by silly voices. Although not quite so much as I am by people getting hit in the head...

"Currently uploaded: 48 out of 116".

We'll soon rectify that situation.  Quite what I'm going to do with 116 icons, I don't know.  If I'd had the foresight, like Eni, to keyword them with moods/sticky keywords, this would be easier.  But as it stands, I keep forgetting what I've got.

Anyway, a few more have now been uploaded, mostly seen before but recycled...

1. ... 2. ... 3. ... 4. ... 5. ... 6.

That'll do for now.  Those are the most usable ones I can see from my vast collection.

Fandoms, etc.:
1. Edward Scissorhands - this was my first attempt at an animated icon, after several hours glaring at ImageReady and another hour trying to find the base image, since they'd since changed the cover of the frelling DVD from the original video.  It also involved downloading an entire font just to get the butterfly.  This one'll probably be used for when I'm feeling fragile or particularly emo...
2. Edward Scissorhands - another one from the same batch, where the snowflake, again, is from a font... although I can't remember now if I already had that one or if it came from one of the hundred or so that I downloaded in the same session.  *ahem*  (Seriously, I have to back my fonts up on a CD because I don't remember where they all came from... I am a complete font whore.)  This will be my "IT'S SNOWING!" icon, and since Spring has definitely not sprung yet, I might still get some use out of it.
3. Most Haunted - Phil Whyman has bee fear.  Except in that case, it's not actually a bee, but the little umbrella-tying thing tickling his ear. :)  This'll be my "ARGH INSECTS!" icon as summer descends.
4. Most Haunted - Matthew Smith, resident sceptic.  'Nuff said.
5. Nightmare Before Christmas - I made this one for [livejournal.com profile] bizarre_imagery two Christmasses ago, but I've just had to steal it back...  Dunno when I'll use this one, but I like it.
6. Chicago - this was the default icon for my ancient Chicago layout immediately after seeing the movie for the first time.  I hate that film, but it is very pretty.  This'll have to be a 'trapped' icon, I think.

That's it.  I need more icons for Moulin Rouge and Farscape, I think.  Definitely need Trek icons and X-Files icons and oh! the possibilities!  And so many icons to use up!!

Now I have the tricky decision of which (old) icon to use on this one.  Possibly just one I haven't used in ages.


Mar. 13th, 2006 08:36 pm
teylaminh: (Farscape - Stark - hidden talents)
I swear, these take longer every time.  I really have to learn how to properly modify/create S2 styles, as their user-friendly web interface is so restricting.

I like my background, but the layout itself isn't too good.  Basically the Priscilla one rejigged.  New default icon, also, but I'm using my pretty new Stark one for this post instead...

Um, yes.  That's all I have to say.  I ranted about work in [livejournal.com profile] co_workers_suck so I can't be arsed to do it again here.  Just have to rename the journal/friends page, etc. and re-do my userinfo, as it's annoying me again.


Mar. 7th, 2006 10:38 pm
teylaminh: (Christine - pity)
I had an idea for a new layout.  Can't be bothered at the moment to argue with the DVD-ROM/Photoshop (at least simultaneously), and even though I want to do a Charlie & the Chocolate Factory layout at some point, I need to watch the film again to think of ideas.  So instead, I decided to turn the Robert Heindel picture of Christine ("The End of Innocence") into a layout instead.

In the interim, have an S2 style instead. :P
teylaminh: (Random - Sunset pink)
So, I've backed up all of my pictures and fonts and random bits from My Documents, and then went through old Zip discs (as you do) to see what was on them.  I found a whole bunch of old MSN/YIM conversations with Naomi, in one of which we discuss how to make a Farscape silent movie.  I may transpose that one at some point, because it's funny...

Anyway, in doing so, I also found this rather wonderful picture of Stark's mask, which I must have snurched from somewhere to help her draw it for the Farscape Horror Show artist's impression (which is unfortunately no longer online due to dead webspace, I believe...):

As a result, I also made two icons out of it.  Up for grabs with keyword credit, as usual.

I'll probably be using the 'hidden talents' one...

teylaminh: (Random - swircle - pwn n3m0!)
My LJ userinfo is boring me; it's too long, out of date, and desperately in need of a revamp.

But I've had it so long, I ought to keep it for posterity.

And obviously, the best way to do this is save it in JPG form.

G33k )

Not quite sure what I want to do yet.  Possibly something clever involving tables to make it match either the layout or the website...

Edit, 22.08: Okay, new userinfo is done. Not quite as creative as I was hoping, but at least vaguely more informative. My creativity has officially committed suicide, I think. Meh. :(
teylaminh: (MH - kiss - K/Y)
I have turned her lovely little picture of Yvette and Karl into this icon:

(I coloured Karl's hair; hope you don't mind...)
teylaminh: (Random - Sunset tree)
Since LJ gave me the 100-icon capacity, and since I wanted to turn the rainbow into an icon, I've added a few more random photo-based icons to the list.

... ... ...

Sunsets make good icons, I think...

The sky has now gone an amazing shade of grey-tinted pink... unfortunately, there are too many trees at the back of the house to try and get a decent picture of the sun going down.
teylaminh: (Default)
New layout, finally.  The long-awaited Priscilla layout, in fact.

It's not as slashy as I'd hoped, because the Anthony/Adam waltzing scene I was going to use was too blurry and difficult to turn into a layout, so instead I've gone for the famous shot, with mini-slashy pictures to make it more interesting.  I'm damn proud of the default icon, too. :D

Will mess with styles properly at a later date to fix the links and such, and will also make the top links into picture links instead, though I'm not sure what they'll be, exactly.  Stylised silhouetted things, probably.  Hm.  I tried to make this work in S2, but short of learning the entire frelling style system, it was impossible as it refused to let me change the margin widths, so I've gone back to the usual S1.  Makes a change not to have a black background.

Anyway, I am now going to bed.

Not particularly inspired, but relatively painless...
teylaminh: (SB - Betty - Oh you!)
Got bored of Component (I have a very low attention span lately) and have gone back to my Sunset Blvd. layout.  This one reminds me of several things, namely...

1) Watching the movie on Eni's bed the first time I met her (back in February 2004) and decreeing that the shot would make a fantastic layout.
2) Finishing my dissertation.
3) My final year of Uni... or, at least, the final few months.

Teeny tiny entry-space, again.  For my next layout I shall endeavour to at least be able to fit a picture 500 pixels wide in the main entry area...

Another meme stolen off [livejournal.com profile] shibaiko.  She has all the coolest memes. :P

User icon memely thing. All 38 of them. :| )

Phew.  That took rather longer than expected...
teylaminh: (SB - Betty - Oh you!)
As I mentioned a while back, the "Component" LJ-layout was only a temporary measure. My next layout was meant to be an Anthony/Adam-based Priscilla layout, but since the new DVD isn't out until June and they've discontinued the original release, I can't do that yet. So, fill out the pretty poll, because I'm indecisive. :P

[Poll #462310]

(I haven't put the Satine-based Moulin Rouge layout on there because it refused to work when I tried it last time. I don't know if that was an LJ-being-on-the-fritz thing, or just because I messed it up, but I don't feel like fighting with it again...)

Bah. The poll was meant to be called "BeX's Next Layout" but I forgot about the apostrophes in the HTML...
teylaminh: (Buffy - sanity)
Okay.  Was getting violently annoyed by the fact that no matter what I did, the S1 style edit was refusing to show any userpics (and accidentally putting an extra "http" in front of them, apparently, which might account for some things), so I've gone for the "I-have-a-paid-journal-snazzy-layout" layout, at least for the time being and until LJ sort themselves out.  Sorry, Eni.  No more Satine. :)
teylaminh: (Default)
I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] thefleshfailure will be delighted to know that I've swapped back to my old Moulin Rouge!/Satine-based layout for a while.  I'd forgotten how annoyingly small the entry-area was, though.

Anyway.  Uhm.  Now I just have to figure out why my userpics appear to have been hacked, or if it's just LJ being all screwy...

The reason for this change is because a) with the onset of the new series of Most Haunted, the Derek/Yvvy MHOTP! layout is going to be detrimental to my sanity and b) this is a temporary measure until I can make either a Priscilla Anthony/Adam-based layout or something else if not.  So make the most of it, Eni, because it won't be here for long. :)

And now I'm going to bed. I keep continually forgetting that a layout change is never just a layout change when you're messing with styles...  Bah.

Just changed my comment links so I know how many comments I've got.  The "Wrong, but pretty" links were starting to bug me.  So, yeah.

Just about to go through and change my friends-list colours, too, as I'm getting confused.  Going to do it by community/relationship instead.

You don't care, do you? ;)

So, uhm... the official  Woman in White website has new stuff up, like 9 minutes' worth of clips from the show, and photos and stuff.

And, er, I got iconing urges.  These'll mean absolutely nothing to any of you, but I like 'em, so I'll share them. :P

... ... ...

No male characters yet as they're not pretty enough.  I might do some tomorrow if I get bored. :)

This is henceforth to be my Swircle-mentioning icon.

Don't.  Ask.

Layout, finally.

Quicker than most, all things considered.  I've been using black backgrounds for so long I'd forgotten how annoying it was tweaking the style to make things clear...  And I'm not happy with my link-quotes, but they're the best I can do, for the moment.

Yes, I do deserve to be smacked for this one.  But, well, it's their own damned fault. :P

I keep thinking it should be time for me to change my LJ layout again, especially since [livejournal.com profile] thefleshfailure keeps hassling me to bring back my Moulin Rouge! (Satine) theme.  Though I will admit that was one of my favourites...  Anyway, it's currently Cabaret, as you can see, if you haven't already.  And whenever I think, "Hm, it should be time for me to change my layout", I see this bit of the background and remember why I'm keeping it:

All those people who thought the MJ/Peter upside-down kiss from Spiderman was, like, OMGteHbestthingeva!!!11one need to shut the Hell up and watch Cabaret.  Whenever I catch sight of that little screencap I get all warm and fuzzy inside.  Which, obviously, is the entire reason it ended up on the layout in the first place.

Anyway, in tribute, I decided to icon it, too...

Pretty, no?  I love it when random experiments with effects and brushes and whatnot actually result in something vaguely attractive.  I really think I'm getting the hang of this Photoshop thing.

There was also this base...

...which I made back when I made the default icon (being used for the entry) and the background, but I lost the inspiration halfway through.  People are welcome to use it if they're at all inspired...

To celebrate the finding of random pictures and indulge in finally making myself a Jonathan Creek icon...

If you don't look carefully, it looks like a butterfly rather than a cockroach; I know that's what I thought it was, and that's why I went "Oo!" when I saw it.  Ah, well, it's still cute, and I like it.

Yay Jonathan/Maddy!  Getting ficcing urges again.  Gah.

So, today I went into Brum to find birthday presents for my mum.  After extensive wandering (well, extensive considering how hot it was and my tendency to avoid the Bull Ring as long as is humanly possible...) I came back with:

~ a vaguely art deco-ish locket thing from Argos
~ a dragon statuette from Evolution with pretty blue glass wings
~ a Chinese good luck charm from the random Chinese shop that's sprung up in the Pavillions
~ some over-the-knee socks, some of which are for me...

Also had a look in Shelley's and failed to get anything in my size.  I'm clearly slipping.

Anyway, tonight Sky finally showed The Ring, so I watched it.  Have to say I much preferred the original Japanese one; far more spooky and intense.  Nevertheless, it still put my nerves on edge, was fairly attactively shot, and seemed to pretty much follow the plot of the original.  The 'ring' metaphor was cleverer in the original, too...

Oh, and before I forget, here's three efforts of the Greta Garbo icon.  I think I like the last one best...

So I've spent the entire weekend indulging myself in MHOTP, as my last post probably demonstrated, but in the midst of the many related icons, I did a few random ones, purely because the photos on philwhyman.com are amusing, and I couldn't resist doing this one...

Also, you remember that anomalous Max-eyebrow that I was going to use for the mood theme if I could decide what mood to use it for?  I came up with something else instead...

Hee.  Everyone needs an 'Oy' icon.
