1. I've been rewatching Veronica Mars and I'll tell you what, it's so much better than I remember it being! Although to be fair, it was the first show I ever downloaded and the program I used then had no guarantee the episodes would download chronologically and I watched the whole season out of order :P
I've decided I love all of the characters (except Logan and Duncan) and the season 1 finale is one of the greatest thing of all time.

2. icons!

a) Photobucket I really like this. Kristen Bell is so pretty it wasn't hard to find a decent cap of her so I tried to find one that I could utilise in a non-center crop because my ratio of center-cropped:non-center-cropped icons is disturbing :/ I really like that I added the 'r' segment on the right because I think it makes it fit in really well with my layout :D

b) Photobucket I love this. I've never seen an icon like this before (this style has been in pictures but not icons so that still counts ;) ) and I think that's really exciting. The red and black against the white is really intense and I love that :D

c) Photobucket So BORING

d) Photobucket I love the light coming from the top and bottom but the colouring concerns me slightly

e) Photobucket The colouring is awesome, but the background is just too simple for my likings.

f) Photobucket I liked this before, but I'm not so sure now. It's just so weird :/

g) Photobucket I love it. My favourite part is how the gradient of the sky in the background is the same as the gradient on her face :D Also check it out, I've got some uneven bordering going on there! I never do that! Yay! :P

h) Photobucket eh. Too weird :/

i) Photobucket :/

j) Photobucket disgusting :/

3. Remember what I said a few posts back about how I stopped working at the bakery for a bit? Well I'm back now! ... I think :/

4. I loved Dollhouse this week and from now on I am going to take it upon myself to use the term 'man reaction' as much as possible XD

5. Last Thursday my computer decided to go through that time of the month. You know, that time when the computer suddenly decides to go insane and every program breaks and nothing works for a few days. You know that thing, right? That doesn't just happen to me?
Well, luckily everything is all fixed now except for PowerDVD, but it turns out it was all for the best because it forced me to research media players and I discovered GOM! Here, let me tell you all of the great features that GOM has in list form:
-you can adjust the saturation/contrast/brightness/hue/etc of the video as it's playing!
-you can tell it to be on top of all windows, except for when it's paused (very useful for switching between watching and browsing :D)
-shortcut keys are surprisingly easy to assign
-you can add a whole folder to the playlist and modify from there
-if you want you can have several GOMs open at the same time :D

And the GOM cons:
-the logo is ugly

6. You guys like clothes on guys, right? I'm going clothes shopping tomorrow because being at TAFE has made me to realise that I have disturbingly few shirts that are suitable for wearing outside of the house and ONE pair of pants total :/
So tell me (with pictures), what kinds of clothes do you like to see on guys?

I'm watching dollhouse atm, it's pretty exciting - but I say more Tahmoh!
"You guys like clothes on guys, right?"
lol... as opposed to clothes not on guys, or guys without clothes? :P (omg I NEED SLEEP)

lol, less mocking my choice of words, more answering the question ;)

sorry :P
I'm not really an expert, but I saw a sweater-type thing the other day that I remember and my friend agreed it was cool:
dark grey, quite thin, v-neck ish?

i LOVE veronica mars - i could watch that show over and over again [while cursing the network for cancelling it, and people for not supporting it in the first place]. kbell is gorgeous :D i have such a crush on her, hehe.

YOU NO LIKE LOGAN? BUT WHYYYYYYYYYYY! i know he's a complete jackass during the first season but omg, logan/veronica = made of win. sssssssigh.

Something -scratch that; everything- about Jason Dohring irks me. I couldn't stand him on Moonlight either :/

OMG I love Veronica Mars sooo much. Kristen Bell was just fantastic in every way. Ya know I did NOT like Duncan either, he just seemed so boring and meh. I actually didn't mind Logan though, and even kinda shipped Veronica/Logan. I think it was cuz he got so pathetic that I just felt bad for him lol

Aw why is 'J' disgusting? I think that's probably one of my favorites of the bunch actually. :)

Hmm guys clothing. I think most of the stuff at stores like American Eagle is pretty cute. What would that style be called officially? Preppy I guess, maybe? In conclusion: I'm pretty much no help!
Josh: jossverseblueymcphluey on March 17th, 2009 12:56 am (UTC)
I'm surprised pretty much nobody makes their love for it known (other than Joss of course ;) )

I think it's because of her hair at the back of her head. Half of it's in complete shadow so it just looks like a tangled mess. And I NEVER sharpen icons, but everything is just so blurry I can barely restrain myself :/

hehe, that was help! If nothing else it helped me find new pictures of Oliver Cheshire ♥ :P

Eeee VMars was the first show I got my hands on outside of regular TV viewing too, but it happened in this insane wonderful way where a kind soul who had dl'ed the first season ACTUALLY BURNED AND SNAIL MAILED ME IT. To this day, I'm unsure of who this person was. Amazing. And so my love for VMars abounds still :D
And I hate Logan and Duncan too.
And I love your icons.
The end :)

:o :DD thankyou!

lol, how did you get the episodes if you don't know who they were coming from?
Deej: [dr horrible] jossbrelladeej on March 29th, 2009 12:38 pm (UTC)
Ah, good question: the kind soul in question also sent s1 to some other desperate VM fans who liased among one another, and to whom I gave my address. I never had direct contact, there was no return address... I never expected it to come through at all, but it was just the most insanely lovely gesture. Gives you new faith in people, acts like that :)
