Gnomicons Update 30 July 2005

I added 8 icons and 5 wallpapers to Gnomicons tonight. Here they are:

Discovery Discovery Discovery Discovery

A wallpaper based around a photograph from Pymatuning State Park.

The Waterfront Line
An addition to my popular photography wallpapers, this one focuses on the Cleveland Waterfront.

The Gift of Rain
Like the one before, this is meant to match with the others in the series. It features another photo from Pymatuning State Park.

After “Colorblind”, I was having a lot of fun with this photo in black and white, and it transformed itself into a wallpaper celebrating The Frames’ song “Locusts”.

Return to Flight
In my exploration of NASA’s site today, I found a gorgeous picture of Discovery in orbit and I couldn’t resist the urge to make a wallpaper with it.

Man, my fingers are tired…. I had some problems with the PHP running the site because some of my new changes got overwritten when I backed things up earlier today. If anyone happens to have errors turning up, or things behaving very oddly, please let me know.

Batman Wallpaper

Since I wrote my Batman Begins review yesterday, I thought I’d make icons today. And I threw a wallpaper in there, too. All in all, I added 15 icons and that wallpaper in all six sizes tonight. I’ve also made a few changes on the blog, many of which are clearest on the front page. Among other things, I now have two co-bloggers, Lindsey and Bandladesh. This means that the level of insanity on this blog has at least tripled. Watch out, world!

Gnomicons Update 14 June 2005

Princely John I love my browser Virginia Narnia quotes on KoH icons... priceless

Just got done making the rounds after adding 82 icons to Gnomicons (subjects: The Hours, Kingdom of Heaven, The Lion in Winter, and Mozilla Firefox) and my wrists feel like they’re going to disconnect from my forearms at any second. Damn my tendonitis.

I mentioned that I love movies yesterday. Despite the smaller proportion of icons it got, The Lion in Winter is one of my current top-ten films, and it’s one I think everyone should watch at least once in their life. The movie chronicles the Christmas holiday in 1183 shared by Henry II of England, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, and three of their sons (Richard (the Lionheart), Geoffrey, and (Prince) John). Though the film’s timeline is not exactly accurate, the writing and acting are brilliant. It’s sort of like Casablanca in its tendency toward brilliantly witty dialogue, but where Casablanca is humorous, The Lion in Winter tends toward scathing snarkiness. Watching this, you will be convinced that there has never been a more dysfunctional family on the face of the earth. They lie, they jab, they act, they plead–and the end result, as a viewer, is that you can never be sure which face, particularly those of Eleanor (played by Katharine Hepburn, who won an Oscar for her role), is the honest one. All in all, an excellent film.
