Hey gang! This is me uploading all my previously un-uploaded graphix so I can put them onto my new computer (say hi to PaqMan, everyone!), and since they're mostly icons, I might as well share. Gank and credit to your hearts' content!

Cinema Bizarre - 11
Criss Angel - 2
Battle Royale - 2
Lovex - 4
Trent Reznor - 3
Tony Jaa - 1
Sleepy Hollow - 1
Miscellaneous - 2

All under the cut. )

*That quote is taken from this review of Mira Grant's Feed--just so all due credit is out in the open. (She said she wanted it on a shirt, but I don't make shirts. So I made an icon.)

Big giant graphix post, as promised! Many fandoms, therefore many pictures (of many sizes). This time, instead of doing just icons, I made some "Friends Only" banners as well. I don't lock my journal, because honestly I just don't see the point, but I know some folks do so I threw some stuff together.

Enjoy!

So, this is how V-day went for me: )

Today was better. I had a nice long heart-to-heart with my mother, FINALLY came out--which was weird, because I was a nervous wreck and she was fine. Although she did throw a couple of daft "observations" my way, one being the classic, "Well that explains a lot." What does that even mean? It's good that she wasn't that surprised; I figured she wouldn't be, but getting Mom out of the way for this whole Coming Out Adventure was a HUGE step, and I'm glad it's done now. The other stuff is going to be much easier. (I think.)

WIP update: 42k (I think I'll hit my word quota by the end of the month at this rate!)

OK--so, between my Coming Out Adventure, being dragged against my will to Avatar*--twice--my brother Mansplaining the reasons why my computer sucks and I should get a titanium-encased iBook ("Why are you getting so upset? I'm just telling you why--" "I DON'T NEED A FUCKING MAC OK!!!"), my doggie gnawing open a cist and getting herself stuck back in the Cone of Shame as a result, and my mother's friend (the one who had the heart attack) passing away, it's been a hell of a month. Some bad has happened, and some good, but I personally am still reeling from the emotional whiplash.

Here's my gameplan to get to February in one piece: Crack 30,000 words in my new story (should be easy--I'm coming up on 20k as we speak), gather all my tax forms together and prepare what I can before April, find some way to get better exercise and get my ass out of the house, and put a review up for my shiny new copy of Final Attraction--it finally arrived like two days ago, thank GOD. I was thisclose to emailing Borders.com to ask them what was going on there. Oh yeah, I'm still fangirling hard, and you'll all just have to live with it. Sorry!

Well, I'm off shortly to see Drummer Boy's recital (yes, we broke up, but we're still friendly--and I want to be supportive, as you do); and then Dad's decided we need to rewatch Season 5 of Lost to get ready for the premiere on Tuesday, so he's breaking out the DVDs tonight.

*I didn't hate it, but I don't understand the heaps of praise being piled on. It looks damn cool, and the story was interesting, but it wasn't the Best Movie Ever Ever like so many of my friends and family seem to think it is.

I've done a lot of thinking over why I became so interested in Cinema Bizarre over the past few weeks, especially after having known about them for a good deal longer than that. I have a healthy dose of so-called "guilty pleasures" in my CD collection, but what I'm starting to realize is that I no longer consider Cinema Bizarre part of that dubious group, and I'm starting to see that label fall away on other things as well. The fact is I've had an epiphany, and these pretty German boys were the catalyst for it. There are a variety of reasons, but what it all comes down to is one simple, surprisingly astute statement:

Style is War. )

(Warning: Really, really long.)

So, as you may or may not know, things are going very much "blah" with Drummer Boy. He's a nice guy, he means well, but there's just nothing going on there. How exactly do you tell a guy, "I'm just not that into you?" without saying either that, or "Let's just be friends?" *sigh* Dating is a pain the ass. I mention this only to attempt to explain why I find myself suddenly lusting after a German synth-pop band who collectively all look like sixteen-year-old girls. 26 solid years of celibacy must be getting to me.

Cinema Bizarre, "I Came 2 Party"

There are two types of people in this world, folks--those who possess the fangirl gene, and those who don't. In my defense, I still hate Twilight. (Well, lolfan hate, anyway. It goes back and forth a bit.) Don't judge me, and I won't judge you.
