Happy (belated) birthday, [personal profile] afra_schatz!!!!! *huggles* I've recently learned how to make mini-movie icons, so here's one for you, because you're a Santana fan:



All the best for you all year long, dear!!

Hello :]

I haven't finished making the House M.D. quotes icons yet, but as it seems that I won't be using the computer much this week (time, or lack thereof...), I thought it'd be better if I posted the ones I've already made, to see what you ladies think.

(25/out/07)EDIT: because I no longer trust LJ with my material, I've moved the fourteen House M.D. s1 quotes icons to IJ.

On a diferent note, I've watched Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End last Friday. It's absolutely bloody brilliant and I love nearly everything about it. More detailed squeeage shall follow soon.

This post first began to be sketched because I've been sitting in front of this computer doing schoolwork for, well, a long time.

CUT for the sake of your stomach: gross little animation of a guy working himself out at the computer )

So I wrote a long rant, but then I read over it and decided that it was booooring, so I decided to go for a nicely-flavoured post instead =]

Wanna know something silly? Near my home there's a street called "Hayden Street". XDD Yeah, I'm easily amused. Hee!

Aaand, I'm nearly reaching the mark of 300 Ewan pictures!! (as himself; I have a bunch of him in-character as well). A celebrating picspam is, of course, in order ;) But for now, let me gush iconically - I've had these stashed in my HD for weeks - a bit over Robert Lewis, (Ewan's part in A Life Less Ordinary), Catcher Block (Down With Love), and our very favourite, wonderfully expressive Ew.

(25/out/07)EDIT: because I no longer trust LJ with my material, I've moved the sixteen Ewan icons to IJ.

Today I've spent a long - and delicious - time over at [livejournal.com profile] viggo_daily, preparing the new picspam... my 'picspam' folder at photobucket has over 200 pics *.* Who are you doing, [livejournal.com profile] xr8fordgirl and [livejournal.com profile] angel_of_dublin?? Vig is seven shades of crazy, and totally adorable.



*LURVES the Crazy Dane*

Things I'll get done next week:

* the Sephiroth-themed layout for [livejournal.com profile] star_raiser
* the JRM-as-Elvis header for [livejournal.com profile] angel_of_dublin

Things I swear I haven't forgotten about, but that I haven't had an inspiration spasm about just yet:

* the pants/trousers fic(let) for [livejournal.com profile] irrlicht74
* the Brian-in-purple-boots-only drabble for [livejournal.com profile] secret_plasures, who seems to share more than one of my unusual preferences ;)
* the Jack/Curt ficlet for my wonderful beta, [livejournal.com profile] vainwithglitter :)

...if I promised you anything and it's not listed above, please do poke me. My mind's a mess (and don't you love alliteration too?).
culuyetille: (VG)
:) I've finally made myself a new, skin-coloured, Curt/Brian-centric Velvet Goldmine layout! *licks lips* In case it picked your fancy, the VG font was downloaded from VelvetGoldmine.com.Ar.

VG sountrack is absolutely no effing good to work or study. Stupid brain keeps (understandably) switching from boooring work to images of Ewan hopping about in the nude every time I hear "TV eye". It is, however, very inspirational for icons...

Life's been really odd lately. A lot going on with the people around me, it's difficult to even try and keep up. As for me, am down with teh monthly eebil cramps, aggravated by a cold (and I even shed a few tears during the "medicine for goat" scene at Terminal today). On the bright side, I've just got back in touch with a friend with whom I hadn't spoken in a while. Feels very good ^_______^

I'm not quite sure whether it's right to put everything in the same post, but I just wanted to express my concern, indignation and sorrow for the victims of the Katrina hurricane, the upsetting tumult that ocurred recently in Iraq and the massacre of Sarajevo, which I've recently become aware of, via the film Hotel Rwanda.
...I wish I could be more eloquent about all of this, but it so happens I'm not. I'm just sorry. I guess Orli conveys the feeling.



-*-

On another, happier note, I've had a good week, rather busy. There's the São Paulo International Short-Footage Motion Picture Festival going on and I've been attending regularly, everything is interesting and inspiring. Today I've stayed home, courtesy of a hurting uterus, and lived basically on painkillers, sweets, fruit and fanfic. :)

There are actually two major reasons I'm posting today:

  • One: If you're an Ewan/Hayden (RPS) fan, or in danger of becoming one, you simply must catch up on [livejournal.com profile] ducky_chas's WiP fic Better on Holiday. I'm deeply in love with this fic. Its plot flows oh-so-nicely, there's lots of positively brilliant dialogue, Ewan is the lovable bloke and Hayden, well, Ewan shall call him squishy and he shall be Ewan's and he shall be EWAN'S SQUISHY!!1one! :) Guest appearance by Cillian Murphy, who sort of tends to steal the scene because he's too fookin' funny an Irishman XDD So go, go, read it now! (this, Caro, is the fic I meant when I commented on your journal earlier today. I think you'd like it.)

    Chapter 11 Chapter 12 Chapter 13 Chapter 14 Chapter 15
    Chapter 16


    Since I'm at it, might as well point you towards [livejournal.com profile] anliya's magnificent piece of Ani/Obi artwork. It's just their hands, sex implied. It's... it's just gorgeous, so full of feeling, so delicate. It made me think a bit of a HP piece [livejournal.com profile] killthwight recced on her lj a while ago. Btw, hon, as soon as I post here I'll give the final touches to my Clive & Ange entry and start posting Owned at [livejournal.com profile] rp_playground. *grins* For anyone who got curious, Owned is a Clive Owen/Jared Leto idea.

    ETA: [livejournal.com profile] afra_schatz has just posted this entirely drool-worthy, too-beautiful-for-words Eric/Orli, Sin City-style artwork. It's just perfect, I couldn't possibly overrate it.
    *.* *in awe at Caro's skills*

  • Two: I keep making icons. It's therapeutic and by now, self-indulgence really since there's so much I should be doing. But I like making icons ;]

    I've basked in SW goodness these past few days, thought I ought to share :)

    Before getting started, well, there's this adorable bit of answer for feedback I received today: "thank you for loving my fic!" It made me chuckle. It is so endearingly honest and I guess that's what we all mean when we go fancy 'I'm sooo glad you appreciate my work' about icons/fics/art/whatever. It is good to please people, it is brilliant to have people like something you've done and enjoyed doing. *smiles*

    ...my team has won one match since we were Toyota Cup champions. That was a month ago; we've had defeats and draws gallore. We're shamefully at the bottom of the national championship and that's... damn. Frustrating. *sighs*

    I finally gave in to the E/H love. After months of lurking at [livejournal.com profile] ewan_hayden reading and gathering information&inspiration, I come about with modest production of my own. I do hope you like it!! First off, icons.

That [livejournal.com profile] afra_schatz has written the most tender, goofy-grin-inducing Bean/Orli fic ever, Not a Bloody Thing. *huggles* And WELCOME BACK, [livejournal.com profile] justinetre!! *squishes*

    What I'm really-really posting to share, though, are the long-promised Paul Bettany icons. I should dedicate this post for [livejournal.com profile] no_me_toques and [livejournal.com profile] dormida; they are two brilliant writers who said they'd stalk my lj for Bettany icons, and omg, that was when I had the Ewan icons posted *blushes* Anyway, here they are!

    </ EDIT>

    holidays indeed!! And what better way to start than with Ewan McGregor? I tried to go back a few stages on this icon-batch. "The simpler, the better" is what I went for. It was a tad difficult to combine that with my newly acquired PS skills, but overall I think I did quite well. [livejournal.com profile] ewan_hayden and [livejournal.com profile] actor__icons alike were very inspiring. Ewan is adorable and it was wonderful working with him ^____^ I've got Paul Bettany signed on for my next male-to-iconise, but I think I should do a female in-between. Any suggestions? Angie Jolie caught my eye lately. I've only just realised she'd be the purrfect casting for Catwoman.

    Now, with the icons! Teasers:

    Shiny new post, so that I can poke people into noticing my shiny new layout with the first header I've ever completed (because I tried before but never liked it enough to go through with it...). It's not perfect but... I like it, I guess. It's all greenish & yellowish, colours for Brazil and my two favourite colours, incidentally. It features Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen and lyrics to Speed of Sound by Coldplay, which doesn't really have much to do with anything but has been etched to my mind for days. I like quite a few of the sentences, so ;]

    As for the rest of the layout, well, it's very Slytherinish green. I'm still having trouble positioning the content boxes and the f-page is something of a mess, but the colours are mostly settled. May I ask how do you like it?

    On another note... I keep babbling about my newfound love for sw_slash. On the past few days I've gathered a few links to material (fanfics, graphics etc) that I love; now is time to share! I have also made a few icons ;] Updated Kaleidoscope today with 55 Keanu+Orli+Obi/Ani icons.

    The Obi/Ani ones, in attempts to infect you all into shipping )

    Speaking of Kaleidoscope, I've reached the mark of over 300 icons. Reason to celebrate!! =D So the first five people who comment get a set of 5 icons each or a header, at their choice. Subject/theme is open, and you can either provide me the pictures & text you wish to see iconised or trust my taste with pictures ;]

    I've just come from a fabulous extended weekend plus one class-less Monday. *super happy* [livejournal.com profile] dead_pen came from Bauru. ^_____^ I've stayed over at her home from Wednesday evening to Saturday morning *squishes*, during which we've talked, talked, talked, drawn (she conviced me to and I made the first ever Nightwing I found acceptable) and watched SW III together. Mostly we annoyed the people sitting next to us with a. squealing at Hayden and Ewan and b. she was explaining details and bits of the storyline to very ignorant me. We also started building her an on-line portfolio and among other things she drew this cuuuute, i-Pod-ish Jin Kazama. *luffs*

    On the genesis of this post, and a few considerations on Keanu Reeves )

    Thinking about the matter while scanning the net for pictures, I realised that what I love about Keanu are his hands, his voice and his eyes. Since he poked my aesthetical sense, thought I should make icons!

I'd already fallen in love with him all over again during my visit to [livejournal.com profile] killthwight (I'm still gushing over that pic, dear!), and that post gave me ideas... and ideas became icons... *grins* Because him and Keanu are my two favourite inexpressive handsome men.

    Hullo ^___^ Most of the material on this post concerns



    Today's been by far too lazy.. (so much more than it should have, considering I have this huge frightening test on Tuesday >.< ) Among other things, I've tried [livejournal.com profile] killthwight's patience *winks* and made the latest half of my batch of Nicole Kidman icons. I own the idea entirely to Lilith, who pointed me to a collage featuring Nic a few days ago. I started looking up pics, and if we're lucky enough, [livejournal.com profile] killthwight will be making Kidman icons too!!

    EDIT: Check out Lilith's Pride and Prejudice icons. I can't find the right words to thank her for gifting me with the brilliant book, and she's outdone herself with the new layout and this fabulously clever, witty and artsy set of icons!

    I really admire this woman. She's a brilliant actress who possesses talent and beauty to measure, and, what's more admirable, discerniment. I know not much of her personal life, but from the roles she accepts and the way she chooses to go about them, it becomes rather obvious that Nicole is a very intelligent woman who dares to investigate the human soul, alternating instigating films with the good ol' romantic heroine parts. Birth (2004), Dogville (2003), Cold Mountain (2003), Birthday Girl (2002), Moulin Rouge (2000) and Eyes Wide Shut (1999) are among some of my favourites. I didn't quite get The Human Stain, and am too chicken to watch The Hours, as it is. But I think I can safely vouch for Nicole Kidman's work.

    As on my latest icon-batches, I've tried to use mostly pictures from magazines and photoshoots. There are lots of Vogue, Vanity Fair and even some Rolling Stone pictures behind the bases. Differently from the people I've last iconised, Nicole isn't anything approaching sporty (appearance, not personality-wise; I wouldn't know). Her beauty is rather old-fashioned, somewhat resembling of Jodie Foster at times. She looks very aristocratic and elegant. Contrary to my previous works, too, she wasn't in the least bit easy to iconise. I struggled with nearly all pictures until I could draw a significant message from them. I hope you enjoy these. =] Teasers:



    (25/out/07)EDIT: because I no longer trust LJ with my material, I've moved the twenty-eight Nicole Kidman icons to IJ.
