1. Funnily enough, unlike usual when I don't post because stuff hasn't been happening, I haven't been posting recently because too much stuff has been happening! And this is despite the fact that I've only got two shows per week now (SYTYCD and Burn Notice) and we're on holidays for three weeks. I've just done a crazy gigantic clean of both of our houses and had a five-hour drama in regards to my brothers appendix and I'm completely exhausted.

2. Check it out you guys, I'm a prophet and I didn't even know it!
No, seriously, I'd like to say I'm with everybody with the grieving and the angst (angst is my favourite emotion afterall. Check out my icons if you don't believe me) but really I've never known any of his songs. I've never known anything of his dance. Up until now all I've known about him are the negative chiches and while I didn't take any of them seriously, they're definitely not enough to make me get up off of my couch and weep.


i) I've had this as my desktop for the past month or so and I've come to the conclusion that I really really like the top half, but I don't like the bottom. The colours and textures up the top epitomise the aesthetic I aim to create, but the bottom just looks sloppy. Although in my defense the original photo was black and white and Taylor was wearing pure white pants on a pure white background :P

ii) Interestingly enough I've come to a similar conclusion with this wallpaper. I really really love the colours and effects on the right hand side but am completely bored by the left half :P
I made this for theskilltester and it shocked the hell out of me. I wasn't aiming for anything like this at all, but all of the colours just happened accidentally, it was incredibly awesome to experience


a) Photobucket Clearly a crop from wallpaper ii, but I don't think this works quite as well so small. It's my favourite segment of the wallpaper but something just isn't translating. I think it's interesting how that can happen.

b) Photobucket I like this slightly more than a

c) Photobucket made with everyline at theskilltester and while there are a few moves I wish she hadn't made, overall I'm very content with this.

d) Photobucket made with motorized at theskilltester and to be completely honest I don't like this at all. Doing a collaborative erasing challenge was really difficult and not recommended for anyone.

e) Photobucket a remake of the very "cool" request icon cool_rush made for me. I love that it epitemises all of the things I loved about Veronica Mars (the drama, the relationships, the subtle yet in-your-face beauty of Kristen Bell) but there's something about it that doesn't work for me. I think that if it were in a lineup it wouldn't stand out, the tones are all too even overall. Maybe :P

f) Photobucket The colouring of this reminds me a lot of this, which is fantastic because if there were any colourscheme I'd like as my signature, it's that one. Overall I'm not too invested in the cap and the texture in the background is too obvious that it was drawn in, but the colouring makes up for it I think :D

g) Photobucket made for icon_crack and I really like it. It seems like everybody else likes it more than me (I got second place! YAY! I think that's the first time I've placed anything there) because I'm just so distracted by the ugly textures in the bottom left hand corner, but again, this is definitely a colourcheme I'd like to be associated with :D

5. Surprise! We've spontaneously decided to go on a holiday to New York for a week at the end of September! At first I was nonplussed because I figured a city's a city and I can drive to one in fifteen minutes if I want to. However then I remembered that New York is the fashion capital of the world and I could potentially bump into my favourite models! Or my favourite actors! Actually the whole world I'm obsessed with is based in New York so I've decided to use this week-long trip to decide whether or not I want to move there once I've finished with my photography course and live there forever. :D

Done and DONE! Seriously, when I think of your icons the first thing I think of is colors, lots and lots of amazing rainbowy colors. :)

Ooooh New York! That sounds like so much fun, I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time

BOO YA! I do try :)

I'm a bit scared that I'm not gonna be 'big city' enough, because where I live at the moment is relatively small :/

haha, the prophet stuff.
why do you always dislike the icons I love? :d I love d! and g!

Josh: torchwoodblueymcphluey on July 3rd, 2009 12:01 pm (UTC)
thankyou :D I think I focus a lot on the construction and whether something was difficult to make rather than the final product.

Oh, on that thread, what do you think? Are you going to post all of your icons next time, not just the ones you like or are you going to completely ignore my suggestion? :P

oh oh and are you excited for the Torchwood week we're about to receive? :D

lol I'm not gonna post icons I don't like myself! I wanna look at my posts and not hide under the table in embarassment:) But I'll try to insert a zip with the rejects, ok?

are you excited for the Torchwood week we're about to receive?
Duh! It's already a bit Torchwood-week, with the three audio plays (last one starts in about 1 hour!). but since school's over and it's too hot to be outside anyway, I'm gonna try to picspam every episode!

Congrats on placing second at icon_crack! :D

lol, i agree with the erase/collab. THAT WAS SOME HARD ASS SHIT. as for the rest of the icons, i love a, c, f and g.

i'm definitely jealous of your new york trip. if you get a chance, check out magnolia bakery. from memory it's across the road from trump tower, but don't quote me on that. they have THE NICEST cupcakes in the history of the world. true story. (=
