For those that have read and enjoyed it I have a set of icons made from the graphic novel Blankets by Craig Thompson posted in my icon journal.


The full set is here in [livejournal.com profile] rage_my_darling :)

For those who are craving a little Mal/Inara action [livejournal.com profile] gilliebeans has a great story called Coming Clean . It's hot and beautiful and I think she does a great job with these characters. Go read and comment :)

Lastly (but not least) I joined [livejournal.com profile] whedonland and you should too! It's a challenge community with four teams (Whedonverse themed of course) and everyone is competing to avert the apocalypse :) I'm on team Firefly :)

[livejournal.com profile] eskimo_jo tagged me for this one:

Remember your first LJ? The free one with only six icons? In this meme, you have to choose and post the six icons you would keep if you had no choice but go back to the six limit. They don't have to be in your list of icons you're using right now, but you have to explain why you chose those specific six. Next, you have to tag six people to do the same.

clearly I've been here too long, my first LJ had 3 icons but I'll play with 6 )

So from bitchy rants to the entire other end of the spectrum: Broadway :) More specifically how I will be in NYC in a little over 12 days! Today instead of having anything to do with fighting with Sympatico (for the record, my computer can no longer connect to their internet at all... again) I decided I really had to order my Bway tickets ASAP. So I ordered myself a ticket to Mary Poppins for Friday and one to Curtains for Tuesday. Everything else is going to have to fall into place as I go :) I'm not sure if I'll order ahead for the Silence of the Lambs musical or just wing it and see if I'm in the mood for that one or if I want to just see no show that night, or if I decide on a completely different show.

I also managed to get some grocery shopping done and prep 2 of 3 screens for the tshirt shindig, they just need a final bit of tweaking. I randomly envisioned a R. Tam session shirt last night so I put my other ideas aside and started work on that one. Oops. I think it'll be darn shiny though.

Then I made a few more of my Stardust icons, and now I'm calling it a night. Bedtime pour mois.

Oooh fun Nathan Fillion's super secret project has finally been revealed!


He's been teasing about this on his Myspace for quite a while now so it's good to see the mystery is finally solved.

In other news I FINALLY started my Buffy Season 7 Moments icon set. I finished off making my blanks and made 15 of the icons so far. I sort of made a lot of blanks for some episodes, I'm absolutely terrible at limiting myself one per episode. C'est la vie.

Not much else to say for now...

Where did Saturday go!?

I ended up being not sleepy until late late late last night. Then got up somewhat early because we'd got a message that our buliding manager wanted to show our apartment today... we picked that one up last night, ask me how clean our apartment is? ;) But it was showable I guess, the guy who looked at the place didn't even check out closet size or anything, just took a quick walk through. So not too bad and I think he's taking the place so we won't have to have a lot of walkthroughs :) On the other side I have to work on finding a new place to live somewhat soonish.

I finished up my Buffy icon set I was talking about earlier this week. Only one season left to go! And the next time I decide I'm going to do a project like this just for the heck of it someone can kick me and then remind me of how long it's actually going to take lol. But for anyone who wants to see Buffy season six icons they're here in this post at [livejournal.com profile] rage_my_darling.

Hmmm now what to do for the rest of the day?

I've been playing around with Myspace a bit lately, I finally made my profile a colour that's not the default and got some pictures up in there and in my pictures section :) I took one picture the other night that I like quite a bit but I also look EXACTLY like my mother... I've never seen the resemblance so much before... I think it's the glasses that make me look different most of the time. Anyways Myspace is here: http://www.myspace.com/elizalavelle if you want to see a small selection of random pictures that would be the place to do it :)

I got in an icon making mood today and finished off the BtVS season 4 set, they'll be uploaded this weekend. Of course in doing so I forgot to eat dinner, until 9:45... So I'm going to have the most bizarre dreams tonight I'm sure because I ate so late. On the plus side I was good and did the dishes :) So I'm not a complete flake domestically today, maybe just half a flake ;)

I'm making no sense, enough with this randomness, off to bed!
elizalavelle: (Firefly - CH LOL)
Clearly I confuse myself far too easily. When I left work today I was fully aware that it was Wednesday. Then as I was shopping for tiny travel things for Kingston (my attempt at packing light begins with packing small) somehow my brain decided that it was Grey's Anatomy night which would make it Thursday. Nomi had to correct me when I was all excited for the new episode.

In other news I have a myspace (I know, I caved!) but I'm not sure what to use it for yet...

Anyways, for those who are interested I am here: http://www.myspace.com/elizalavelle

I don't really want to blog about life in there because I have that option here already.... so I have no clue what to put there.

Oh and I've been making icons again :) Icon journal is here: [livejournal.com profile] rage_my_darling currently I'm in the midst of a BtVS centric project, but there should be a variety of subjects being posted soonish :)

And that's my self promotion ;)

In other news I feel I should give the show Farscape a go. So many people say how amazing it is, that can be something else to work on this year :) Oh that and I sat down this week and FINALLY watched my first full episode of How I Met Your Mother and it's one of the funnier things I've seen :) I may have to one day pick up the first season on DVD for fun :) Hello Vortex, make it happen ;)

The mass of long holiday weekends are over. I'll miss having the free time but I am looking forward to some semblance of routine for a couple of weeks :)

Time for the REALLY REALLY GOOD news! Sarah Slean is playing a show in Kingston on Feb. 2nd! One month away today! Not only this but it's the same lovely church venue that she played at last time she was there and that was just the best show I've seen from her. Clearly I am going (actually, clearly I almost fell over twice when I read the news, once as I was getting out of my desk chair to run for my credit card, and again running down the hall... I have no coordination when I first wake up in the morning.) Andrea (Flare) and I have already booked our room to stay which is at a charming B&B we saw last year when we were staying at the Super 8 which smelled of dead people and was somewhat sketchy. When we saw the adorable little place we decided to stay there should there ever be another Kingston show and now we have one :) I've just been flying on that news for the past couple of days :)

Other fun news, my icon muse has surfaced! It's been forever since I just sat and played with photoshop. I put up a set of The Secret World of Og book icons and a Veronica Mars set... and currently I have a Buffy project on the go. However I now do have to cut myself off and head to sleep.

Nomi gets home tomorrow!

[Error: unknown template video]

I bring to you my Christmas video. The BtVS episode Amends is my Christmas Eve tradition, which this year of course I forgot at my apartment so it shall be my Boxing Day tradition ;)

Oh and also if you're looking for last minute Christmas icons I have ones from last year here:

Buffy icons

Veronica Mars icons (scroll down a mite for the holiday ones)


Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer icons

Happy holidays everyone!

I'm nabbing a meme from [livejournal.com profile] willow_kat to break up the SFX fun. Also this is a good one to do as I think I'm going to overhaul my userpics soon.

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, what significance does it have.

Umm what, Counting Crows and Goo Goo Dolls are touring together this summer.... did I go back to highschool and not notice it?

I finished making the bases for my VM finale icons (way way way late I know) thus far I have 123 bases to play with. I just love the lighting and the shots they use on the show. It's like BtVS and Angel and Firefly... they're really paying attention to that stuff and it makes the show a visual treat.

time for sleep now.
elizalavelle: (VM working hard)
hehe it's official, I'm so vidding the finale of Veronica Mars. I haven't been bitten by the video bug in about a year.... and I have another VM vid buzzing in the back of my head....

Well I have a Serenity idea but I'm waiting for a certain song to be released before I make that one....

I now have the first 14 seconds of my video made. The next 14 are going to kill me dead. Why why why do I chose fast paced songs?

And I'm also making my icon bases to play with too :) SO much fun.

I think that I'm a triple geek today ;)
elizalavelle: (Edward Eager books)
Phew just finished making my bases for icons from the last episode.... not spoiling anything but if you're read my past few entries then you'll get this.

cut just in case, total speculation, no spoilers! )

At any rate I shall be making icons this weekend. I made 62 bases... far to excessive, some will have to be scrapped. But I'm sick so I'm making myself stay in and get better. I also want to make some more book cover icons. While I think they amuse mostly just me I'm quite liking them.

And since I'm in a VMars mood: VD is for everybody it's one of those ads from 1969 that is informing the public about VD... with a cheery song, and dancing lol.

Anyways I'm sick so I should sleep. However, even with a cold, I feel all summery because I didn't have my moisturizer on hand so I put a little sunscreen on my face and now I smell like summertime :)
elizalavelle: (Lilly joy)
I just watched the Big Love pilot tonight (thank you [livejournal.com profile] amy_vic) and my but that show is going to be fun. I am now working on getting the rest of the season, and then I do believe that I'll push through them this week.

Tomorrow my brother and I are going to see 'Thank You For Smoking' which is awesome because it was my second choice of movies to see on Friday and now I'll get to catch that one too. *yay*

I'm sleepy but oddly awake tonight. Next week the goal is to get back onto a normal sleep schedule because the early mornings for the past week and a half totally threw me.

Oh and my almost end of the month icon journal wrap up. For those of you who read this who don't read my icon journal this month has included icons of: Sarah Slean, Buffy/Angel/Firefly, Veronica Mars, Edward Gorey, John Bellairs, Ivy Cottage books, V for Vendetta and Julia Roberts (made for Olivia but they're sharable.)

Oh and a WaT music video. I'm going to get all of my music vids uploaded hopefully in the next few weeks just for kicks.

So yeah, if any of that tickles your fan bone they're in the first page and a half at [livejournal.com profile] rage_my_darling
elizalavelle: (Logan Clone High quote)
My brother and I went out for yummy sushi today :) Sooooooooo good. I haven't had sushi in a while. Then on the way home we stopped by the mall and I picked up shampoo and other assorted boring stuff (which was still fun to be able to easily afford lol) and then I saw the Clone High DVDs and just could not resist them. Only $25 for the whole season and they're randomly hard to find which is odd.

Yesterday I was playing 6 degrees of Buffy at work with one of my coworkers. I love other Buffy geeks hehe it was something fun to occupy my mind with while helping customers.

In other news I've been making icons like crazy, I've missed my photoshop this week! I have two full posts waiting to go up, one for later tonight/tomorrow and one for later in the week I think :)

Oh and while I'm not a huge Dixie Chick fan they do have pretty good singles, and videos and their new one is really quite good. Check it out at their official site. I really like the song and video. It's called Not Ready to Make Nice and of course refers to the way America reacted to their comments about George W. Bush. Two thumbs up says I :)
elizalavelle: (Sarah Slean red shoes)
Phew, just cleaned up my photoshop brushes. I had SO many on there that I'd either downloaded when I first started using the program was was like "OMG brushes make everything better" and a bunch of text brushes that were neat in theory until I realized that they made my icons tend to look like everyone elses.. strike those. Also I think even when I was using them I've used less than 10 total out of lord knows how many I had.

Oh also I had some of my icons stolen by a couple of Xanga users. Does this mean that I've made it as an icon maker? ;) Seriously, what is it with those "icon journals" over there? Even beyond the hotlinking/not crediting/claiming they made the icons who in the hell wants to make pages and pages of icons that they've found? This shows what? You can use the right click button on your mouse?
elizalavelle: (Black Widow cameo end)
a little self promotion, for those who don't usually check out my icon journal, I made icons of the Natalie Portman rap from SNL last week. They are here.

Tomorrow, well later today, Neal and I are heading out for coffee... but I just saw Cam's littleslean post about Sarah having a photograph on display at the Spin Gallery just for yesterday and today... I'm thinking perhaps I'll see if Neal wants to go to that as well as for coffee... I have to ask about the Slean painting anyways :)

My alarm didn't go off this morning and as I was up late last night talking to Viv I was very close to being late for work. Thankfully I can get ready super quickly. However as it's late again and for sure It'll be after 3 when I get to bed I'll have to double check on what's wrong with my alarm (my guess is that I just set it totally wrong because I'm just that special) or else I'll be late meeting Neal and all he has to go on is my shabby directions and I think I was confusing lol.
elizalavelle: (count me out)
hmmmm I got no feedback at all for my last batch of Sarah Slean icons, none people. Ergo if you like Sarah Slean and haven't seen these go check them out here. They're all from the video for Lucky Me, which I thought was good timing since that just came out in Paris... but apparently not so much lol.

Must get ready for work now.
elizalavelle: (angry short person)
I haven't been regularly posting here when I update my icon journal but if there's anyone here who hasn't checked it since I last posted teasers here there are more icons of:
The Virgin Suicides
From Hell
Veronica Mars
Without a Trace

all here: [livejournal.com profile] rage_my_darling

I updated like mad this month so there's quite a few icons.

/end pimpage.

elizalavelle: (Slean NYC)
I have 27 Heathers icons at my journal. Avoid them if you're too young to see the movie, there's bad language on these.


The rest are here in [livejournal.com profile] rage_my_darling
