i keep trying to tell you, I genuinely wanted circus tickets  
1. okay, this is your absolute last chance to snag my 560.44 days of paid time and 321.23 days of extra userpics. If nobody else shows any interest, then nowordforit will get the paid time, because she's the only person to show any interest whatsoever and dana_chosenart will get the extra userpics, because (among other reasons) she lent me to 30 USD to get the permanent account.

2. harbourlight sent me a Christmas card! Thankyou so much! :D :D
I realised I was being a doof by not offering to send any out so chuck a PM my way with your address if you want one <3

3. I'm thinking about going friends only, and making an icon journal. I'll still discuss my icons here, but they'll be based over there for if anybody who isn't you wants to see them. All I need is a journal name/layout and hey, does anybody want to start up one together? We could be a fun group and do a acrobatica/colourwaveesque thing :D

4. Psh, stupid facial hair. I used to be able to manage a week without having to shave, but now I can't go more than a day without looking like a crazy homeless person :(

5. I watched P2 yesterday because Rachel Nichols is awesome. It really wasn't that scary considering it was supposed to be a scary movie. There was one cringe-worthy bit about 30 minutes in with a beating and various splattering organs, but other than that it was fine. It inspired me to re-watch The Inside again and something about the fact that Rachel Nichols chose to star in both of those says to me that she's a little bit dark, which I like. I watched an interview with her on youtube and she was HILARIOUS so I'm very possibly a little bit completely in love now.

6.

a) Photobucket how annoying is it that there are no good Toshiko caps? I can't find ANY! I seriously don't understand this phenomena that good-looking people don't end up looking good in screencaps, it's crazy. Anyway, I hate this icon and if you have any good toshiko pictures, send 'em my way :D

b) Photobucket heck yeah it's Rachel Nichols! And... random model guy who looks weirdly like Chace Crawford. I think the colouring is a lot of fun :)

c) Photobucket yay, a much much much better version of Photobucket! :D Manipulating them together was completely ingenious and not my idea, by the way. And despite the fact that I am 100% content with it, I feel the need to add various textures on 'screen' :/

d) Photobucket I like the yin & yang thing going on here, but something about this doesn't pop out to me.

e) Photobucket I love this, but I worry that I made it too obscure and that nobody will be able to tell who it is (let me know if you can, in the comments :D) I really like the curve to the border. It's subtle, I added a little gradient :D

How much do I love 'c'? The answer is: a lot. The coloring is beautiful! I love the contrast so much.

hehe, thankyou :D
doctor blind.: stock l fashion l no place like homelovestories on December 15th, 2008 08:39 am (UTC)
A) I AGREE. The 'people who look better in motion' thing is ridiculously baffling.

C) I have yet to see this episode, but GORGEOUS!

E) Is it...Tina Fey?
Josh: 30 rockblueymcphluey on December 15th, 2008 11:27 am (UTC)
do you watch ANTM? It's discussed on there quite a bit, but not enough that it actually explains WHY :/

:D thankyou

Indeed it is! And phew, that takes a load off my mind

haha, I try shaving every 2-3 days. it's so tedious.

how much does it cost to send a Christmas card from AU to the USA?
Josh: fashion ; dornanblueymcphluey on December 15th, 2008 11:44 am (UTC)
I know, and it's surprising how much of a difference it makes! You go from this to this in 48 hours :P

I have absolutely no clue, but I figure if people are willing to send them to me, the least I can do is return the favor
Stephharbourlight on December 18th, 2008 10:00 am (UTC)
It's a $1.20 to send Christmas cards anywhere overseas from Australia, btw ;)
jessiieeeeeeiladora on December 15th, 2008 11:36 am (UTC)
re (e): I'm thinking Tina Fey? lol, I know about the smallness, I mean, when you make it you KNOW who it is.

inara also looks much prettier in motion, in my opinion. It's a shame, because when she moves I think she's so gorgeous.

I may be interested in joining a group of icon makers, if you consider my style/skill to be compatible with yours :)
Josh: fireflyblueymcphluey on December 15th, 2008 12:01 pm (UTC)
yay! I'm so glad you could tell! I was actually going to start up a community where your post the icon you're uncertain about and people reply telling you if they can see what/who it is, but like all my communities it died shortly after being conceived :(

yeah, I definitely agree.

absolutely! I'm slightly worried about what I just said, how all of my communities shrivel and die shortly after creation :/
However if we're both bombarding it with icons that should help :)
but yes!xmaidelx on December 15th, 2008 06:58 pm (UTC)
3. I'm positive that you'd get a load of people watching your soon to be founded graphic journal. And now I can be all, "It's a Josh original. Please go check him out here *insertgraphicjournalsitenamethingy*. Group graphic journals are fun! And I'd offer to start one up with you, but I don't think I'm nearly in the same league as you are. So I'd only bring you down. But I would flail over your stuff like crazy, so you've got a cheerleader over here. :)

4. Crazy!HomelessPerson should be a mood theme. That's all I'm saying. And I don't know the practicality of waxing one's face in hopes it would grow back less.

5. I've no idea what P2 is, and as I am on cough medicine, I think it's cruel to make me guess.

6.
A) I've no idea who this is, but I love the coloring and the crop.
B) I dig the coloring on this sucker. Very nicely done.
C) I want this one. SOOOOOO much. Odds of me being able to snag with credit towards you? Textures aren't required. This is just a lovely moment between them two.
D) I like the yin & yang thing you're talking about. I think that pops out just fine and adds a layer of subtle sophistication to the icon as a whole.
E) I was going to go with Tina Fey with this one, although for some reason she first reminded me of a Kennedy. To be fair, the 30 rock tag kinda helped, but I don't really watch the show, so toss up. I do like the border.

3. :D do that! Well I invite you to join. I really like your contrasty style and I think aesthetically it meshes with mine :)

4. hmm... I'd rather not :P

5. P2 is a horror movie starring Rachel Nichols. She gets trapped in a parking garage on Christmas Eve with a creepy guy and his unnecessarily aggressive dog. It was fun, I liked it :)

a) it's Toshiko from Torchwood. I can't believe you haven't seen it! Go. Download. :P
b) haha, thankyou
c) 1:1 (a.k.a. 100
d) :D thanks
e) ay ay ay... you haven't seen 30 Rock? It's only the best comedy show ever! (and yes it is Tina Fey by the way and thankyou :D)
Michelle.: pb; team (hotel)flatlined on December 15th, 2008 07:27 pm (UTC)
I constantly forget that it's almost christmas for some reason.. *shrugs*

my journal used to be completely locked up and then one day I just decided to go public for no reason whatsoever.

I love C!

and I guessed Tina Fey for E (though I was unsure but that might also be because I don't really know her from anything)

group graphic journal are awesome!
but.. I tend to focus mainly on one fandom and your way more talented!
Josh: 30 rockblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2008 06:58 am (UTC)
yeah, me too. It feels like it should be ages away. I think it's because decorations were put up so early I barely even associate them with Christmas anymore :P

:D thanks!

Tina Fey is correct. Now go download 30 Rock :P
Anna: tw → you get to live forevershoqolad on December 15th, 2008 07:52 pm (UTC)
I LOVE a, b and c!!!
Poor Tosh! I want pretty caps of her too!
Maybe I'll get around to make some during the holidays... IDK.
Josh: torchwoodblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2008 07:00 am (UTC)
:D thankyou

T O S H !!

Dunno why, but a vast majority of Tosh caps have her wracked in some sort of anguish.

...Personally, I wouldn't say no to extra icon space - witness my griping these last few weeks - but I feel like such a dick asking, because, well, I don't know you that well. Even though I'd like to. I'm just kind of terrible at commenting and... well, whatever, you get the idea. But, um, yeah.
never underestimate a Celtvanitashaze on December 15th, 2008 09:24 pm (UTC)
Also, I personally really like "d", but you're right about something being off about it. Maybe if you darkened it a little? I feel like it's a little white-flashed out.
Josh: doctor whoblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2008 07:12 am (UTC)
I'm currently making an icon out of S :P

yeah, I know, it sucks :(

alrighty, then icon space it is! I've really got no need for it, it's not that big of a deal, but I'm sure we'll figure out a way for you to pay me back eventually :P
never underestimate a Celtvanitashaze on December 17th, 2008 02:09 am (UTC)
*beams*

I'm currently making an icon out of S...
Ooh, good. Maybe I'll finally get my paws on a good Tosh icon. Because, yes, with the anguish and her face - as gorgeous as they are, nobody on Torchwood is conventionally pretty, and that makes them SO DAMN HARD to icon or draw - we are experiencing a tragic shortage of Tosh.
Michellenowordforit on December 15th, 2008 10:14 pm (UTC)
1. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

3. I'd start a comm with you if you wanted. It wouldn't make sense since I only use my journal to post icons, but oh well

4. My legs understand your frustration :/

5. I've never heard of P2

b is SO pretty. So is C. And D. And e. Um, you see my point. and I agree about the Tosh caps. That's why I've barely iconned her :(

Josh: the insideblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2008 07:23 am (UTC)
3. yeah, good point :/

4. lol

5. It's a horror movie starring the ever-glamorous Rachel Nichols <3

6. :D thankyou so much! I was really proud of those icons, so I'm glad you like 'em :)
Michellenowordforit on December 16th, 2008 06:33 pm (UTC)
If you don't find anyone else I'll definitely start one with you. Maybe I'll start actually making non-icon posts lol
Josh: lostblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2008 11:50 pm (UTC)
lol, yay, awesome :D
Dana: TW > Tosh/Owen breaking my heartletsey_x on December 15th, 2008 10:22 pm (UTC)
Aww, I love a! I'm sure there are many pretty Tosh caps, though (how can there not be?!). Maybe I'll do a picspam someday to show you just how many pretty Tosh pictures there are;)

b) I don't know why, but it seems my favorite icons from you are always made from photoshoots. Love the intense blue with the redness of their lips!
Josh: torchwoodblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2008 07:33 am (UTC)
icon snap!

:o a Tosh picspam? yes please!

that's really interesting, because I've always felt the exact opposite. :D thankyou

say, how interested would you be in joining my graphic journal? I've told you this a million times before, but your icons rock my world and style-wise I think we'd be somewhat compatible.
Dana: TW > ghostsletsey_x on December 16th, 2008 10:21 am (UTC)
I'm flattered you'd want me:d But I kinda like having my own little corner in the www-world, and my journal would become pointless since I rarely post anything besides graphics. (and now that I just made it a permanent account...that'd be sad)
Joshblueymcphluey on December 18th, 2008 11:27 am (UTC)
okay, well here's what I'm going to do: when I've got everything all set up I'll send you an invite. Don't deny it and then should you eventually change your mind, you're welcome to join in :)
.: like a rolling stonep_e_p_a on December 16th, 2008 03:06 am (UTC)
ok, idk how i came upon your lj but i just want to say that i'm in love with your blair/chuck icon!

is there any way i could snag it pretty please (w/ credit towards you of course)? :)
Josh: gossip girlblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2008 07:33 am (UTC)
lol, absolutely
.: like a rolling stonep_e_p_a on December 16th, 2008 08:24 am (UTC)
awesome, thank you. :)

Thank you, that's really sweet of you :) Uh, it's $35 btw ;)

Josh: gilmore girlsblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2008 01:57 pm (UTC)
1. It's not sweet anymore :P vanitashaze wants it also, so I guess that means... a fight to the death?

I sent it to dana@thedudes.nu, let me know if that worked :)

4. Okay, well I've changed my mind. Womanhood please! :D

You got my card? :) You're welcome to send one back to me if you like. I don't mind.

Don't go friends only! That's so lame :P What do you have to hide?
Joshblueymcphluey on December 18th, 2008 09:53 am (UTC)
lol, you "don't mind"?

I keep on wanting to link to a certain journal that doesn't like to be mentioned outside of friendslocked posts that I told you about a while ago :P

Oh, hey, can you help me modify my current layout to use over at countless_junes? I love this layout, but I want it in a different colour. Red or yellow maybe? Orange? green? Obviously I have no idea what I want :P
Steph: celeb: annasophia redharbourlight on December 18th, 2008 10:06 am (UTC)
Oh. I mean't I don't mind if you don't send one. Seeing as you've left it so late and all :P

Just lock the entries when you mention it. Don't lock everything. Well you can, I guess. Friends only journals just annoy me. It seems so egotistical to think random people actually care enough about you that you have to lock everything :P

Wait, you love the basic boring generator s1 layout? Seriously? If all you want to do is change the colors it would be easier for you to do that yourself through the customize journal page. It's got a whole interface and everything ;)
Josh: buffyblueymcphluey on December 18th, 2008 11:33 am (UTC)
ah, lol, well I'll try to :P

well it's also that I mention a bunch of personal stuff here (e.g. pictures of me) and it seems weird that just ANYBODY can just come along and read it all :/
Hmm... you've made me question doing this...

Yus, it's brilliant! Best layout ever. It's all squarey and centered and awesome. :D
