You know I said I was really busy with the club vivid vids? Well I am, but I have been suckered back into Reverie after months. The place has me completely hooked again and it's even got me feeling creative enough to open Photoshop! Bloody hell! Although I am back on there, and it's great, I will not be neglecting LJ and you lot. I don't post that often here on *my* journal but I still consider it my main place.
Sweet Charity got off to a great cracking start yesterday. £2400.38/$4634.66/€3509.65 has been pledged already! Everyone is so fantastically generous it's hard to believe. The Power of Fandom strikes again. If my bidders are reading this > Thank you thank you! Don't stop bidding now though. ;) Below is a reminder of my offerings.
Vid: -These are the shows I can vid for you: Buffy, Angel, Xena, Dead like me, 4400, Hex, Deadwood, Carnivale, BSG, Supernatural, Veronica Mars, Firefly, Bad Girls (Seasons 1-3), Dark Angel, Alias, Torchwood/Dr Who (Not old school), Life on Mars, House, Heroes, Rome, X-Files Plus any movie that can be rented (except gore fests).
Song choice: Not rap or heavy metal please. A choice of 2, possibly 3 songs would be very helpful.
Buyer input: Pick a song and a show and either leave it at that or give me a theme, tone and character. Obviously draft versions can be discussed via email.
Some of my most recent vids can be streamed at the link below.
Have you seen the Ho's you can buy at Sweet Charity? So far 26 of us have joined up! It's a lot but not nearly enough. Get joining it's for a great cause.
Right, must get back to vidding - lots of projects, so little time.
- These are my 2 latest wallpapers. I don't think they are my bestest bestest ever artwork but they are not bad.
Oh and I was bored, I can't sleep because the neighbours smoke alarm has been going off for hours (no fire) so I decided to change my layout. I think it's pretty... what do you think? ;)
And while I'm doing random - how fabulous is Ed Harcourt? His voice is my new crush. :D astartexx I think you would like him.
What would you do/get for a mom you barely know? Hmm
While I'm here I just want to pimp this new colorizations community. Also art_battle if you have time please join up to both. Go on its fun! :D
ETA: I would just like to thank you astartexx, anon and bunnythenavia for your suggestions. ( I've actually got something now )
ETA: x2 My mother is going up in a hotair balloon. Not my choice but my sisters... Hmmm.
My loyalty to ex Buffy actors led me to try out “How I met your mother”, “Kitchen confidential” and “Bones”. I didn’t stick with any of them but I think I would probably be a casual viewer of “Bones” if it ever makes it across the Atlantic but I’m not going to actively seek it out.
I’ve never been a huge fan of crime or medical shows so I suppose I was unlikely to be blown away by “Bones”. The only procedural shows I’m still watching are “House” and “Cold Case”. I love the characters in “House” so I’m able to ignore the fact that I really don’t understand much about each medical mystery. “Cold Case” is kind of a guilty pleasure – I don’t think it is great telly but I quite like the social history and visualisations of the flashbacks.
I was hopeful that I would like the whole bunch of paranormal/alien shows that premiered this season but most of them failed to maintain my interest so I only watched a couple of eps of “Threshold”, “Surface”, “Invasion” and “Night Stalker”. I have found “Ghost whisperer” to be entertaining in a kind of unassuming sort of way. It doesn’t blow me away but it is a pleasant enough way to pass an hour. “Supernatural" is the only one of the new shows that has really gripped me. It has some proper scary moments and I find the focus on just the two brothers rather than a wider cast gives it quite unique feel.
Of the continuing series I have stuck with “Hex”. I still have a soft spot for it even though it is totally bonkers and refuses to follow even its own dubious logic. Although I have continued to watch “Alias” I do feel it is struggling this season. It seems to be generally assumed that this will be the last season and I hope that they will be able to deliver a decent finale because it would be a shame for it to go out on a whimper.
This brings me to my two favourites from last season “Lost” and “Veronica Mars”. I have to say that I have been quite disappointed in the second season of “Lost” so far. I know it is “Lost” and nothing should be taken for granted but the hatch reveal and the tail section survivors have not been great developments for me so far. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Ana-Lucia gets some character development and that something awful and permanent happens to Michael because his constant whining is really getting on my nerves now.
I haven’t noticed a lot of raving about “Veronica Mars” this season. I hope that doesn’t mean it is getting killed in the ratings because I am still very much in love with this show. I feel that second season has developed from the first, the new cast members are not jarring and the writing remains solid. I like the return of snarky Logan, the “Veronica Mars accuses me of evil” scene was just brilliant. I also like that Wallace has been given a bit more to do this season he is a great sidekick but Veronica does take him for granted and it is good to see him stand up for himself.
So there we have it - my not very interesting commentary on the shows I’ve been watching and the ones I’ve given up on. In fact this post is just a way of padding out yet another “look at my wallpapers” entry. :D

p.s. My vidding dry spell continues...I've had several ideas for vids in various fandoms but so far none of them have come to fruition.

I have been a little behind on everyone’s posts the past couple of days. Today has been very busy and I'm shattered, so I don't think I will be able to catch up tonight.
evil_trisha did your salt and vinegar crisps arrive? They went in the post last Thursday. I didn't forget you. ;)
Arghhh I still have so many icons to do for creative100 I am way behind. I thought making 100 icons wouldn't be so bad but I was wrong. I don't know when I'm going to get them finished let alone help you out haltlos! lol
Firstly I want to give a big pimp to the new 'Supernatural' vidding community run by ringwench . If you are a fan of the show and are going to make/watch vids for it, then check it out here > supernaturalvid Go join! Go make!
Secondly, after making a header image for supernaturalvid I felt the urge to make a wallpaper.
So here it is. 1024x768. Click the thumb to view. Images from Jensen Ackles.org Brushes from http://hybrid-genesis.net/
And lastly..I said I wasn't sure if I would make any more LJ layout images... Well I lied! This time it's Brad Pitt. astartexx ♥ him lot's. :D

On the vidding front - I am vidding! I open up premiere every time I get a chance. I have 3 projects on the go, so at some point in the not to distant future I will have another video ready to be viewed by the general public. Be honest that is what you are all waiting for isn't it? You don't want my real life ramblings do you? lol
( One thing I must get off my chest is the new Harry Potter! I know many other people have had their say on the book but these are my thoughts. :D )
So was this a dull post or what? lol I'm just passing time, I can't sleep.
I will have more interesting posts to make in future. Maybe..
Oh and I'm in the middle of making a Logan/Weevil video! First vid for this pairing isn't it? It's damn hard work but hopefully it'll turn out ok. :D
