IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: I'm probably good with what I have, considering I'm not full up yet.
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: About what I like, sure.
ARE YOUR ICONS MADE MOSTLY BY OTHER PEOPLE: No, it's like 70/20 in my favour, though I'm definitely starting to get more made by others.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: I think they're not bad. I'm no expert, but I can fumble along with Photoshop well enough.
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: Fine in moderation. Also rather addictive to make. If time consuming.

I last posted icons in September. Wow. Maybe my other resolution should be to make more icons. Or do more fandom things in general. Because I really need to talk about television more than I already do. ;)

So, after bombing through all the series of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes, I was suddenly at the Université Sainte-Anne for immersion. And I needed an outlet for my new found obsessions (omg, hold me, [livejournal.com profile] inara223. I'm so obsessed! Sam! Gene! Alex! Eeeee!). Then I thought, "Aha! Photoshop is totally french friendly! (except for those little bits of english in the text icons. Shh.)" Thus, this is the product of five weeks sans-internet... but with a whole slew of screencaps. Hope you enjoy! ;)

Thought this would be a good thing, as apparently my extra icons are about to expire, and I have to go through that nail-biting, do I? do I not? thing, 'cause yes, there's totally better things to spend my money, but they make me happy!!!!!!!! We'll see. I'll probably cave. But anywho:

1) Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2) Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.
3) Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4) This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

This is my fiftieth icon post! Neat, huh? While I'm not going to claim I've exactly mastered the art, it nice's to have the proof that I have improved. (I'd like to thank my early Microsoft Paint days, and Paint Shop Pro for teaching me about that pesky resizing thing, and Photoshop for always labelling your colours...) Yay for 100x100s!

Well, here comes our snow. Just little bits of it now, floating charmingly through the air, but I expect it'll pick up soon. My reasoning behind weather prediction in Halifax is usually to take what going on in the more westerny parts of the country and just give it a few days. It's a good rule of thumb: You guys get snowed on, I wait three days, I get snowed on. Done and done. But it's still not December yet, and I don't care how sweet and holiday-y it looks outside, I will NOT start playing Christmas music. NOPE. *resolve face*

Small batch of Random Assorted Icons time:
[7] Pushing Daisies from 1x06 and 1x07
[2] Robin Hood from 2x06 (they're being spies!) et voila )
(Whoops, found another PD:1x06 icon I left out) )

Hmm, really starting to look nippy out there, I say, curled up in my bath robe under the covers. But the sister is out at some costuming event in Sherbrooke (yes, as in "I wish I was in [it] now" for those of you familiar with "Barrett's Privateers". Canadiana FTW!) and I hope she's warm enough. Then again, those Victorian dresses have about FIFTY BILLION layers, so I'm sure she'll be fine.

I could have gone to LitCrit this morning, but insead of listening to my THIRD lecture THIS TERM on A Vindication of the Rights of Women (Mary Wollstonecraft, I love you, but when you come up in almost ALL my courses, well then...) I stayed home and made Ned!icons instead.

I'm pretty sure Ned's popped-up collar jacket was the sexiest thing that's been on my TV in awhile, so to commemorate the awesomeness that it was, I made 26 (yep, 26!) icons of said collar and of Ned in it. These are the ways to be a happy fangirl.

Ned, Ned, Ned, NED! )

New episode of The Office tonight, directed by the master, Joss Whedon! Who has a new show coming out! WHEE!!!!!!!! (Please don't cancel it, FOX)

I am le bored. Which I know is SAD for a university student on a Friday night, but there's a big Halloween party tomorrow night, which means that there is nothing at all to do now. Even repeatedly refreshing my friend's page is getting old. So, I decided the time is come for a random assorted icon post. And by random assorted I mean all Pushing Daisies and some Jim and Pam.

Funky thing about the random icon post though, is that not all of these are finished. Some of them *demand* some text, but my brain is being helpful by coming up with a big fat "...blaaaaahrg???" THUS. If anyone has any suggestions; a sparkling piece of insight that says "Ooh! [this] should be written [there]!", then feel free to share. I'll write it in and then GIVE you the icon. Eh, eh? How's that for fun on your friday? ;)

Hmm, anyone else anthropomorphize their iTunes' shuffle? Until recently, mine seems to have been on a HUGE Spamalot kick, but all of a sudden, today it's latched unto the Christmas music. In October! Silly Shuffle. It might be some kind of retribution however, for me playing the Battlestar soundtrack on repeat when not giving Shuffle its free reign. But it's SOOO good, you guys! Bear McCreary is the newest shareholder of my soul.

And speaking of Battlestar, said repeated listenings of the third season's soundtrack have left me with a desire to watch some episodes again. I'm not sure how many people watch it, but does anyone have any recommendations from either season two or three? Episodes they think deserve numerous repeated viewings? Since apparently season four isn't going to start until April (I know, eh? That's a year between seasons! Who does the Sci-fi channel think they are? The BBC?) I might as well fill in the time.

Weeeell, that's about it. I think I'll spend the next hour refreshing the flist again (hey, things could have HAPPENED in the last half hour!) and then contemplate how awesome my Halloween costume for tomorrow is. And then maybe I'll catch up on some readings. Maybe.

...Probably not.

I think I might want everyone in the world to watch Pushing Daisies.

This conclusion came to me after I watched the second episode, 'Dummy', for about the eighth time in a row. I'm seriously LOVING this show. So I don't know how persuasive I am, or what you've heard about the show, but all I can say is GIVE IT A TRY. It's got all you need: pretty people, funny scripts, an OTP to die for (Heh heh. Oh, I should not make puns), um... SINGING, FTW! And a massive dose of WHIMSY and QUIRKY. I really REALLY love this show.

This also leads to icons. From '1x02 - Dummy' the episode I've watched ten billion times with no end in sight. )

So...er...SHOW! Watch Pushing Daisies on tuesday nights (or wednesdays if you're in the States, heh heh. Oh... was that mean?) And then I can SQUEE non-stop. Cause, you know, I don't do that enough. *g*

Wow, I don't think that was in any way convincing. Oh well.


hjea: (dw-huggy hugs)
Feeling nostalgic. *shrugs* Plus I realized that the Ten/Rose category is very much under-represented in my own icon collection, and that just would not do. So.

Beware of hugs. Seriously. There's too many behind here. )
hjea: (chuck-group hug of awesome)
But first off - I've just recently seen the first two episodes of Chuck and... I like them. :D They're pretty darn charming. Not to say that I think the show is fabulous television, but, well... Chuck. I think I'll take a page out of [livejournal.com profile] otahyoni's book and say that that something about the combination of cute, tall, lanky, dorky, underachiever (*coughs*JimHalpert*coughs*) really works well. So I recommend Chuck! Nothing like a Nerdy, Sexy, Spy Drama to round out your Mondays!

Plus, whoo! Adam Baldwin! (He's scary. In a funny way)

But on to the main point of this post, I'm wondering if the fwe of you who make icons could help me out. I have a couple of The Office icons:

that I have saved as .gifs, but for some reason are coming up as WAY over the 40kb cut-off. Like, WAAAAY over. And I know that they should be smaller, as I've saved mini-movies like these ones before. So, any advice? Know how I can make them smaller? If not, no worries, I've got some non-crazy, non-movie icons coming up in a moment. *g*

Icon Dump!

So, I was kinda inspired by something [livejournal.com profile] locker_monster said in one of her latest posts, about the 'Doctor Lite' episodes of Doctor Who. I guess the wording just made me giggle. BUT... 'Doctor Lite' episode icons were soon to be made. ;) And here they are:

Episode 2x10 'Love and Monsters' aka 'episode of the WTF?! faces'

Despite being Doctor lite, do not be shocked by the fact that most of these are of Ten and Rose. Er... Sorry, Elton. )

And I know I already made a few 'Blink' icons here, but... here's some more!

Episode 3x10 'Blink' aka a tribute to Sally Sparrow

Hey, it's not my fault she's in nearly every scene. And that she's awesome. And that the camera LOVES her. ...Ahem. )

Oh - and happy friday the thirteenth, everybody! ~Ooooooh, Spooky~ ;)
hjea: (dw-wibbly wobbly)
I feel like today was a computer-y kind of day. Well, I guess most days are kind of computer-y in this day and age (especially if, er... you spend a lot of time on lj), but today was especially so. Firstly, I was playing around with my layout this morning, and I think I finally got it where I want it. I've been wanting a change for awhile - loved my header and my colour sceme, but the borders and sidebars and lack of visible tags were starting to bug me. And finally (after much searching and subsequent CSS tweaking: [find and replace, find and replace, find and replace]) I have this! And I'm quite happy with it. *pets* I also found a mood theme that I like, with both Nine and Ten Doctor Whos (and Rose - duh). Yay!

*hugs lj*

Also today was class registration! How fun! That is, if you like fiddling around with the Dal Online Registration website for hours, just TRYING to choose the classes you want. Harumph! But -- finally got my fall classes and even most of the winter ones sorted out. Looks good! English with Modern Criticism and The Romantics and Shakespeare, and History with the Rise of Rome. Even taking a Classical Mythology class as an elective. Whee!!!
(Yes, total nerd, I know.)

AND yesterday I got my new printer! It's very pretty - a Canon PiXMA MP160. Look!

And it even prints really good quality photos! Like this:

So, it hasn't gotten much use yet, but I'm sure it will once the school year begins.

Ooh - made a few Blink icons the other day. Still probably my favourite episode of the season - just so fantastically written and acted and the pacing is FABULOUS and, sure the Doctor isn't in it much - but he does manage to come up with "timey-wimey" in a few short minutes so it's totally worth it - and I love Sparrow and Nightingale and GUH! Still, I'm REALLY looking forward to the next ep. Because - DID YOU SEE HOW THE SOUND OF DRUMS ENDED! But on to the icons. ;)

Learned to stay away from hens, though. It's not pretty when they blow. )

So, that took up most of my day, and then I went to work! Ooh - and bought tickets to the Fire works boat cruise we're doing on Canada Day. Exciting - I did a lot today, didn't I? ;) Still haven't gone grocery shopping though, and I just ate my last box of Kraft Dinner, so you know it's getting desperate. Guess I'll just have to keep up this productive streak a bit longer.
hjea: (farscape-exactly where you need to be)
[livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar's watching Farscape! I am excited because of this! Which I totally already mentioned, but... I'm repetitive? *shrugs*

Anywho, obviously this inspired icon-making from me!
