1. stolen from lovestories

i. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
ii. Do this everyday for eight seven days without fail.
iii. Tag eight of your friends to do the same.

-I listened to the Flight of the Conchords soundtrack <3 SO FUNNY!
-I discovered the awesomeness of Alexandre Cunha's face <3 SO SEXY!
-I ate a scone <3 DELICIOUS!
-Gaius's "you are all perfect, because god only loves perfect things and he loves you" speech at the end of BSG 4x04
-Sarah killing that guy in Chuck 2x11
-Gretchen being hilarious/evil/adorable in Prison Break 4x10
-The reavelation that Michael's mum is alive (or at least that's the conclusion I came to) in Prison Break 4x15

2. I was watching House 5x11 the other day and there was an absolutely stunning plus-sized girl on there who thought she was ugly and you know what? It broke my damn heart. When I first saw her, my initial reaction was :o and she thought she was ugly? I mean, I know that she's a fictional character, but for some reason it breaks my heart to think that there are pretty people out there who don't think that they are. :(

So... do you think you're good looking? And reply with pictures, so I can tell judge for myself :P

3. I've been watching Charmed season 1 these past few days and so far I have mixed feelings. My initial reaction was that it was a poor man's version of Buffy season 1, but episodes 13 and 14 have actually been really good. The story is evolving, the mythology is evolving, and it's all going in a direction that I'm interested in finding out more about.

4. icons

a) Photobucket I really like this. The multiplying of scenery and the blurry square thing are two things I've been doing a lot of recently and I like them.

b) Photobucket alternate colouring of 'a' #1

c) Photobucket alternate colouring of 'a' #2

d) Photobucket alternate colouring of 'a' #2. My favourite possibly?

e) Photobucket I mentioned I am in love with Alexandre Cunha's face, right? I like that the colouring made everything look very flat, I think it's interesting.

f) Photobucket sexy picture, but that's a 'nay' on colouring/iconning skills.

g) Photobucket made for my battle with brooke70 and I like it. It's certainly not the best icon I've made, but it's also definitely not the worst.

h) Photobucket remember how I said I have been using scenic pictures on multiply as textures? Well here's me going overboard with that. Stam is always perfection though <3

i) Photobucket I love this. It's simple, it's subtle, it's smooth. He's yellow, but he doesn't look crazy, which is something I don't think I've achieved before. And to top it all off it's Flight of the Conchords!! :D

I also made a corresponding signature for use in forums

j) Photobucket Seriously, why do I even bother making Lena icons? They all turn out rubbish! I'm trying to play with difference a little more.

k) Photobucket alternate for 'j'

l) Photobucket despite what I named this icon, this is actually a P2 icon. Isn't Rachel Nichols pretty? And if you don't mind me saying, I don't think my colouring is too shabby, myself.

m) Photobucket see 'l', except my colouring IS too shabby.

n) Photobucket Miss Sato, is that you in a decent cap I see? Well I never! Aside from the weird colourey bits in the border, I really like this. And as you can see, I'm doing the blurry square thing again (WHERE DID THAT COME FROM? WHY AM I DOING THAT ALL OF A SUDDEN?)

o) Photobucket hmm... this is Ben Foster in X-Men 3, but for some reason I put a weird texture all over his pretty pretty face :/

p) Photobucket what do you think? Better? I'm not convinced... :/

Haha Charmed...My very first fandom! Without it, I never would've started making graphics. The show itself, though... It's okay and entertaining and sometimes good in the first 3 season, but by season 8 you're thinking "WHY AM I STILL WATCHING THIS DRECK OF A SHOW?! WHYYYY Oh right, the pretty people. And Holly Marie Combs'hair."

I think icon o is very interesting, but it's kinda sad you can't see his face, because it looks very pretty in p. Maybe you could try masking away the parts of the texture that's on his face and forehead? I don't know.

"Oh right, the pretty people"

heck yeah! I can't wait for Rose McGowan to step in, who cares about the quality of the show itself :P

"Maybe you could try masking away the parts of the texture that's on his face and forehead?"

Oh I tried. Trust me, I tried. It's impossible I say!

E! Oh, how I love e. And a isn't half bad, either; I might adjust the color saturation so it's not quite as yellow, but the composition is rather nice. Perhaps get rid of that little grey box around the white areas? (This may just be me, though; the boxes are kind of my pet peeve but some people seem to like them.)

Ahh... good old Charmed. It was one of my first fandoms as well. The show was fun and entertainment. But after season 4 and definitely after season 5 there is this massive DIP in quality. Sure there are some bright spots in later seasons, but it never really gets its quality back. I'd say definitely watch s1-4/5 but brace yourself for s6. Demian's recaps at Television Without Pity are pretty hilarious to read along with especially in the later seasons, although you'd have to start from s2 to avoid spoilers.

I second the comment re: HMC's shiny, shiny hair.

warning most definitely recieved and TwoP is always hilarious, I always used to read the ANTM recaps :P

My favourite, g and m! The colours man, its always the colours that I love :)

Sorry dude, no pictures from this side but hey, I do think I look pretty good, its my opinion that counts the most right? ;)
The important thing: how would you rate yourself since I now know what you look like :D?
Josh: fashion ; cunhablueymcphluey on December 18th, 2008 02:41 am (UTC)
hehe, thankyou. :)

Well at least you acknowledged that I asked for a reply to 2 :P nobody else did.

Oh, me? Uhh... at the moment not so well... at all. I like some bits of me and others not quite so much, but overall I think I look very average and boring :/
nargynargynargynargy on December 21st, 2008 12:54 am (UTC)
I wouldn't say average or boring at all :|. Maybe I can't judge completely, not having seen your full style and all, but you seem to come across as arty and cool :). Good looking lad like you should have no trouble getting the girls or guys, whichever your preference.
And hey man, sometimes looking average is better than trying too hard.

I started watching Charmed again now. I love the earlier seasons but I don't mind the later ones either. They're just so completely different.

Season 1-3 is all in soft browns and feels all vintage-charmed and then in season 4 all of a sudden everything is so bright. It takes a while to get used to :P

I think the second season is my favorite. Which is weird because I'm starting to realize that the second season is almost always my favorite. Buffy, Angel, Alias, Dark Angel, Charmed, Roswell, Stargate Atlantis, Gilmore Girls...

Except for Supernatural and Veronica Mars of course, because those guys started of brilliant.

I really love (i) btw :)
Josh: jossverseblueymcphluey on December 20th, 2008 01:27 pm (UTC)
yeah, usually the 2nd and 5th seasons are my favourites, I predict it has to do with the psychology of the writers. I think that they get too cocky about how good they are after the awesomeness of season 2 and drop in quality for two seasons, then after realising that they've dropped in quality they pick it up again for season 5 :P

Anyway, Grey's Anatomy, Boston Legal and The Office are other great examples of that for me. I haven't been keeping up to date with Desperate Housewives this season, but apparently it's another good example. And also I suspect that Lost will get better in season 5.
