Oh look, I'm still alive! I just wrapped up my first semester back in school (I'm pursuing a second bachelor's degree) and celebrated by finally crossing "make a Damon/Elena fanmix" off of my to-do list. (Although I have to say I ended up leaving off a song that I consider a quintessential D/E song, so I may have to, you know, make another?)

For those of you wondering if I'll ever make icons again (if anyone is), I fully intend to make more and have some sitting around waiting until I have enough to justify making a full post. So, yes. I will. Eventually.

Anyway, without further ado, here is a Damon/Elena fanmix which is essentially in Damon's POV and spans everything that's aired so far (although there are no specific spoilers for anything). There are single-file download links from MediaFire and a complete zip file which is uploaded to my own webspace.

i've been roaming around always looking down at all i seeCollapse )


Again, the individual links are uploaded to MediaFire, but the zip file is uploaded to my own webspace and will not expire. Please comment if you take the zip, so that I have some idea of bandwidth usage :) And feel free to comment just to tell me what you think of the mix, as well!

Veronika Decides to Die is a brilliant film based on a book of the same name by Paulo Coelho, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jonathan Tucker, and David Thewlis. It was filmed in 2008 and in 2009 was released in Brazil as well as a few European countries but as yet has not been released in the US or UK. Although the copy I have is not of particularly stellar quality, it is a freaking gorgeously filmed movie and I wanted to cap it. I figure I might be the only person on LiveJournal who wanted caps but since I made them it can't hurt to post them, right?

Note: If you download these without having seen the film, please know that I didn't leave all the blurry caps in there because I'm a lazy capper. The cinematography is beautiful, but it involves a lot (a lot) of playing with focus and a lack thereof. I left in a lot of the blurry caps because you can't get a feel for what the film looks like without them.

Incidentally, the movie also features music by Murray Gold and Ben Foster, the geniuses behind the music of Doctor Who and Torchwood. And if you haven't seen the movie and are now intrigued by it, you might want to click this link *wink wink nudge nudge*.

I swear I am working on icons, I swear! I'm in the middle of making icons for the Lost finale but it makes me REALLY emotional so I keep setting them aside, lol. And I definitely want to icon more of Doctor Who series five because it is SO PRETTY.

But in the meantime, here's some wallpapers. Many of these I made quite some time ago; in fact there's a couple years of birthday gifts for unbrokensky here that I don't think she'll mind me sharing. I also have icons cut from some of the wallpapers, so I'll include those as well.

[10] Wallpapers (various sizes available)
-- [02] David/Billie
-- [03] Ten/Rose (spoilers for 4x12/4x13)
-- [02] Hamlet (Tennant)
-- [01] Doctor Who 4x11 - "Turn Left"
-- [01] Master/Rose
-- [01] Tenth Doctor

Please Note: Blanks are NOT bases, please do not customize them yourself. However, if you would like any of the icons customized (including those posted here with text), comment and I will do it for you as soon as I can. This includes animation - please, I am perfectly willing to modify these for you, don't do it yourself! Also, if you would like a blank of one posted with text for use without any text, comment and I'll hook you up with that as well. So, without further ado, the wallpapers/icons...

See it all under the cut!Collapse )

Again, blanks are not bases but I will customize them (or the with-text icons) for you if you comment and ask. If you need another size for the wallpapers, let me know and I might be able to hook you up. Please comment if you like them, take them, or nominate them and credit either surrexi OR how_iconic in your icon keywords/comments if you use them. Thanks, and enjoy!

This mix has been on the very back burner for months as I slowly worked out the tracklists piece by piece in spare moments. It was inspired by the fact that I had two different versions of the song "Lost Without You," a very post-Doomsday song. The original is by Delta Goodrem, and I also have a live cover of the song by Darren Hayes (formerly of Savage Garden). That gave me the idea to build a two-disc mix around the two versions of the song, one with songs from the Doctor's POV, and one with songs from Rose's. Ages later, I've finally finished it! There are single-file downloads for each track uploaded to MediaFire, and a zip file containing all the songs and covers uploaded to my personal webspace.

Coincidentally, today is my bff unbrokensky's birthday. This is not really her present (what an angsty present it would be!), but since she was poking at me to finish this any time I mentioned it, I guess I will partially dedicate it to celebrating her birthday. Even if it is a great big ball of angst.

all i know is i'm lost without you, i'm not gonna lie...Collapse )

The fifth series of Doctor Who continues to delight me and continues to be eminently iconable. Also, I recently splurged and got myself an iPod touch and have started to make Doctor Who-related wallpapers for it, which I figured I would share for the benefit of others who have iPhones or iPod touches. They could probably do double duty as info banners if one wanted to use them as such :)

Ten will always be My Doctor, but I have to say I do love Matt Smith as Eleven. I thought he was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed episode 5.01. Hence the icons!

I've been working on these Doctor Who and Merlin sets for a while now and finally managed to wrap them up. Then the Being Human season two finale impressed me so much that I had to make... season one icons? I'm doing season two next, I swear.

I recently had the opportunity to attend two Switchfoot shows in three days, which left me (a) generally happy about the world and (b) really wanting to make icons. This has resulted in a whopping 57 icons.

In the recent help_haiti fandom auction, I offered up a fanmix to the highest bidder. eboniorchid had the winning bid, and requested a post-series Max/Michael (Roswell) mix. Now, I was mainly a Dreamer in my Roswell days (aww, it was my baby's first fandom, lol) and when I wasn't largely backing conventional couples I tiptoed into the UC pool with Michael/Isabel (those BABY DREAMS tipped the scales, ngl). That being said, I seem to have acquired a pair of slash goggles in last year or so - thank you Captain Jack Harkness - so whilst my post-finale MAXLIZMAXLIZMAXLIZ mindset was a little hard to break out of, it was easier than it could have been. Hopefully I managed to put together something approaching what eboniorchid was hoping for!

Meanwhile, I apparently cannot make mixes based entirely on post-series or AU ideas without writing some of them down, so there are a few little vignettes interspersed with the songs. The individual song download links go to MediaFire; the complete zip file at the end is hosted on my own webspace and contains all tracks and the cover art.

the beginning is the end is the beginning...Collapse )


Again, the individual links are uploaded to MediaFire, but the zip file is uploaded to my own webspace and will not expire. Please comment if you take the zip, so that I have some idea of bandwidth usage :) And feel free to comment just to tell me what you think of the mix, as well!

Oh my gosh, it's new icons from me! In less than six months from the previous post! They're all from episode 2.10 of Merlin, though, so I'm still running behind, lol. Still, new icons! Yay!
