1. I really want to make a picspam for the latest challenge at picspammy, but people keep on doing who I was going to do so it doesn't really feel like I need to. :/

2. I GOT PEGGLE ON MY PHONE! It is sooo awesome, just like the real version of the game. All of the physics are dead on, the only problem is that when you move your pointer often you can't see a graphic change in pointer location even though it's registered by the game, but that doesn't matter because Peggle rawks!

3. I'm getting a lot less hours at work because somebody came back from a really long holiday. I'm not sure if I'm annoyed or glad, because I definitely feel more relaxed. I was actually invited to the birthday part of one of my co-workers, which was weird because I don't really think we're that close. Anyway, it turned out to be really awkward because I am by my very nature unsocial and I didn't really know anybody there.

4. It's my brothers birthday today, we're going out to get yiros's (yuck and for the record I had no say in the matter) in about an hour.

5. I'm up to 1x14 of Alias and the last few episodes have left me underwhelmed. I'm worried that they used all of their good material at the beginning of the season to hook us in. Jennifer Garner looks extra awesome though.

6. icons
a) Photobucket Umm... I like this. I'm not in love with it, but it's certainly not as bad as a lot of the other T:TSCC icons I've subjected you to these last few weeks.

b) Photobucket see 'a'

c) Photobucket I tried something a tad different with my colouring and iconing style and I like it. But again, I'm not thrilled by it. I was inspired by letsey_x, the earlier years.

d) Photobucket I love this so much! I made it just before I was about to go to sleep, so I was worried that I was deluded and my vision wasn't working properly, but it's actually good! I love the colour range and Brian is hot!

e) Photobucket um, no. too much yellow and too much... weirdness.

f) Photobucket see 'e'

g) Photobucket Oh, her face looks AMAZING, but my iconing skills are sucking here.

h) Photobucket I overcompensated for very uncontrasted image and it turned out a gigantic mess.

i) Photobucket I don't hate this, but I don't like it. I think the reds look kind of cool, but I think I did it too much? I don't know.

j) Photobucket this is seriously not only the most feminine icon I've ever made, but the the most feminine thing I've ever seen in my life. So much pink and yellow and baby blue! I also think it looks better the longer you look at it, because my initial reaction to it is "oh, so girly and bright" but it becomes less so the longer you look.

k) Photobucket Yay! Everybody needs a Jossverse icon, I think. I was inspired by nonbeliever93's default icon and I think it turned out awesomely! My criticism is that the looks a too much like an ANTM wallpaper I made a while ago

l) Photobucket combating the similarity to the ANTM wallpaper, I made this and I love it. I think the paint brushing looks very interesting and unique and having it all be off white is really cool. I don't like how the Serenity logo looks inverted, though.

m) Photobucket I have been struggling to make a decent Alias icon (because I can't work with amazing caps for some reason?) but I think I finally nailed it with this one. The purples look really cool, the yellows on the sides make it seem less "PURPLE PURPLE PURPLE!!!" and Jennifer Garner's lips are her best asset so I think my cropping emphasises them well.

n) Photobucket oh gross, so much contrast and black and red. Terrible, absolutely terrible.

o) Photobucket Hmm... I both love and hate the simplicity in this... I'm torn.

p) Photobucket see 'o'

q) Photobucket I love the colouring and how dark she is. My favourite part is that she's not the subject of the icon.

r) Photobucket I really like this. It's got a very smooth whenitsquietesque feel about it, which I love. The double framing is perhaps a little bit crazy :/

s) Photobucket inspired by tihana, but this isn't awesome as something she'd make, I don't think.

1. Who cares? Make what you want! Just don't look at any others until you're finished.

3. It's exactly the same for me. Everyone's on holidays now so they're all stealing my hours. But it's nice to relax, and it's not like I saved any money while I was working lots of hours anyway. So I can't complain about the difference. The less I have the less I will waste :P

Icons: I really like d, g, k and n.

1. well they're using all of the same pictures as I'd use so there doesn't seem like much of a reason for me to make one :P

re: icons- I know I've said this a million times before, but it's so weird looking at my icons on a different computer because they look COMPLETELY different. It makes me realise why I never win any icontests and why people hate all of my favourites :P also thankyou :D
Stephharbourlight on December 13th, 2008 11:23 am (UTC)
Yeah I know. I make all my icons on the family computer but post them on here. And the difference is so noticeable.

But it just makes them slightly darker and adds a little contrast so I usually end up preferring it.

1. Heh. who did you want to picspam? I'd say just go for it! Lots of awesome people still to go!

a) I like this one too! It's very you, if that makes any sense. I can recognise it as your style.
c) I have a "the earlier years?" LOL
d) Looks very cool! I have that "too tired to see if it's beautiful, will check again in the morning" feeling a lot, too;)
k and l) are so cool! I prefer the white background as well. Though you'll have to try to fit in Dollhouse in a couple months;)
m) is my favorite of the bunch; pretty colors and pretty crop! You're right about the yellow going great with it.

1. well I was going to do Melissa George and Tina Fey, but people have already done them. So now the people on my "people I love list" are Catherine Tate, Jane Espenson, Cobie Smulders, Anya Rozova, Reid Prebenda, Eliza Dushku, Kristen Wiig, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway, Kayne Gillespie and Pasha Kovalev <3 :D

c) ta da! I think you're underestimating for how long and how much I've obsessed over your icons :P

k&l) I am so excited about Dollhouse. I've just been watching interviews with Joss and Eliza and it got me all pumped up again and not at all worried about the Friday timeslot of doom :D

m) yay, thankyou so much! :D

Oh, you have to watch season 5 anyway, because it's totally awesome this season! I haven't really liked any of the previous seasons, but this one is knocking my socks off! But hey, having Melissa George around isn't hurting any. Her accent is so awesome, I need to figure out where I can get me one of them :D

Hey. I was thinking. Did you want to do a picspam together for the second challenge at picspammy? Like a crazy big thing we put together with a bunch of different pictures that we each choose.

And to some theme. Like Brunettes or something like that. Or a great big "We are insanely obsessed with television" picspam?

eta/ Oooh. I just had another idea. We could do it like a battle. Like Blondes verses Brunettes. Thoughts?

okay, well just a warning, I've got a million things on my plate right now... that I shall list for you in my next post :P

I would love to. I'm not too fond of the blondes vs. brunettes thing, but I think the battle idea is fantastic. I've seen icon and wallpaper battles but never a picspam battle! Would it be like, I post a bunch of caps from one show, you post a bunch of caps from another? I don't know... did you have a plan of how this could actually work? I think that the 'we're tv obsessed' thing does sound like our best bet, so maybe it could be a countdown of our favourite TV moments? :/

Although for the reference, which side are you on? Blondes or brunettes? :P
Steph: celeb: roseharbourlight on December 13th, 2008 11:22 am (UTC)
Haha, no problem. We don't have to do it specifically for picspammy. Just some random day in the future when we are both bored, a picspam battle would be fun ;)

Right now? Not sure. I'm actually partial to redheads today.
Josh: angelblueymcphluey on December 14th, 2008 03:18 am (UTC)
well then it's set: Brunettes vs. Redheads, who will win? (brunettes! duh!)

Hmm. But I only like red hair on girls so that would leave me somewhat limited in my picture choice...
Josh: fashion ; opryblueymcphluey on December 22nd, 2008 01:55 pm (UTC)
okay, Brunettes and Blondes then? And I'll let you have Jennifer Morrison if you want :P
