Distrust of the media has grown to the point where many people only trust the news if it comes from a comedian. Who do you trust more: Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart?

Jon Stewart. Colbert is a performer, his presence on the show is a character -- while its a great way of being critical of current political events, I think he'd go for the joke rather than the critical analysis if he had to choose. Stewart's humor is almost incidental to the critical commentary.

THIS is the most absurd thing ever. I mean, SERIOUSLY?

They also, apparently, make one from Titanic (yes, from the ACTUAL Titanic) steel. Unfortunately, you cant use it, because in order to preserve it, it must be kept at all times in an argon-filled, oxygen-free dome.

Ppl. Srsly. this is when I want to smack rich folks.

30-something L&O SVU icons behind the cut, along with their textless siblings. All Elliot, Olivia, or E/O in nature, from a wide smattering of season 7, 8, & 9 episodes, including Fault, Blinded, Starved, Paternity, and others. Experimenting with selective color led to some... interesting results.


I wanted revenge.Collapse )

Hey yeah, I'm back. When depressed and despairing, return to what gives you joy, I say. And icon-ing does that for me. ;p Below please find 27 Firefly quote icons from a hodgepodge of episodes and the BDM -- quote icons are great when you're trying to relearn Photoshop. Many of them turned out to be left-handed quote icons, which is interesting. ;p Let me know what worked and what didn't!

Okay, in the contrary way that I have, I had an HP epiphany while watching OoTP in the movie theater for the second time (and by the way, if there's anyone in NYC who wants a harry potter buddy to go watch the movie, let me know, I'll totally go see it again).

I realized (wer-doi) that this is THE LAST BOOK. ZOMG. *hyperventilates* I mean, it really hit me. So yes, I do want to read it, spoiler free. I'm going to have the rest of FOREVER to deal with the horror of what happens, so whatever. I'm going to read book 6 as soon as I find it in the many book boxes I have yet to unpack, but I WILL get DH on Saturday (or whenever -- I WANT to go to the crazy Harry Potter party, but I don't have anyone to go with, so I'll just get the book the next day like a normal grownup) and I WILL read it without Rach's clearance.

The thing is, there are spoilers EVERYWHERE on eljay. I mean, WTF? How on EARTH are there spoilers? The book is out there, sure, but has it been stoled? I thought they took care of that sort of thing when it happened with HBP.

So. Yeah. Going spoiler free. And buying Kleenex. Of course, this could just be because, as I said in my OoTP movie-post below, I am bouyed by my incredible ability to IGNORE COMPLETELY that which I don't like, 'ship-wise. I OWN DENIAL.

Oh, yeah. Got a 35T on the MCATs. So I'll hopefully be able to get into med school. Rock.

Flexing Photoshop muscles... looks like there's significant atrophy, but with enough PT, we expect a good response. i took that a bit too far, didn't I?

20 BSG icons from here and there within Season 1. Caps, except one of my own, are all from bsg-caps.com.

Found some oooold BSG S3 icons on my hard drive while I was making some S1 icons with my shiny new Photoshop. Since I'm not sure of the spoiler rule, I'm just going to post it in a separate post altogether. So, yeah, 6 icons, spoilers for Battlestar Galactica Season 3, though none for the finale.

January. Woe.Collapse )

For memento1, a paltry thank you. Your help in getting my PS7 up and running has been *invaluable*, and since one of my favorite hobbies is putzing around with it, you have no idea how happy you've made me. Really. There's no way to show you how grateful I am, really, so here's just a token -- one requested icon, one I though would amuse you. Again, many many thanks.
