A’right. Never done a tutorial before, so I’m sorry if this is either inefficient or way too info-laden. Let’s see what I can do!

Warning: VERY IMAGE HEAVY. Not dial-up friendly.

Tutorial #1 )

I hope it’s been helpful and not confusing! Feel free to play with any of those steps. That’s how I learned how to use PhotoShop in the first place—found a tutorial and just started fiddling. Enjoy!

Meme!

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] chocolatepot's LJ.

Three Things Meme. Three interests, three icons. Poke me, and I'll reply with three of your interests and three of your icons and you get to do the same thing, either here, your own journal, or both.

Fairy Stus: Ever seen a story that features Harry being wooed by the new GUY in school? Chances are that new guy is a Fairy Stu, the homosexual equivalent of a Gary Stu. They're just as annoying as Mary Sues, just with a penis. A lot of slashfics have the two main slashy boys having Fairy Stu tendencies--like Draco is a Veela.

Draco Malfoy: He's a brat, a pill, a jerk, and for some reason (read: tom felton), people love to Stu him up. I'm pretty sure he gets hit with the Sue stick the most out of all the HP canon characters.

Crossovers: I HATE THEM. Rarely do you ever see one properly done, because a lot of people just use them to a) get Legolas to shag someone in the Potterverse, or b) want the super powers from all universes and crossover just for that reason, like Halcyon did, the rotten bastard. /rant

: It's a quote from MST3K, said by Crow. Man walks into a store, and walks out again when an old man's back is turned. And Crow drops that line.

: Sweeney Todd! Nice picture of him right there, drinking his coffee, and he killed who knows how many people with his razor. So--even serial killers need coffee.

: That would be Jack Sparrow's hat, puked back up out of the Kraken's mouth--at Jack's feet. So it, like the man himself, always turns up. Just like a bad penny. I am exceptionally proud of that icon, in that I think I did a very good job on it.

Icon dump!

RIGHT. It is Monday, and yesterday was Sunday. Yesterday, I went and saw Grindhouse with a friend.

And laughed the whole way through.

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT.

PLANET TERROR!!! )

Now, I liked Planet Terror. I liked it a lot. However, it was a zombie movie. And as I said--zombie movies aren't really my thing.

Death Proof, on the other hand, was a SLASHER.

WITH A CAR!!!

DEATH PROOF!!! )

And now, things I liked about the two as a whole:

Pros/Cons )

And that's my review. Overall?

I LOVED THIS MOVIE. IT WILL BE MINE.
das_mervin: DO NOT TAKE (Sam and Joon)
Righty! Things to say.

Grindhouse is making me squee with joy, for some reason. I think it's because I adore any movie that accepts that the plots they have are held together with a teeny, frail little thread of plot that holds together all the sex and violence and gore, and this one doesn't just accept it--it EMBRACES it. YEAH!!!

That, and I saw two of the fake trailers that'll show in some of the prints, "Hobo with a Shotgun" and "Thanksgiving." *jumps up and down and wiggles her bum*

Yep. It's happened. My fandom is officially DEAD. I can't have nice things. *mourns*

How the hell do you bring Edward Gorey's "The Doubtful Guest" to the big screen? HOW?!

And Sweeney Todd is gonna debut theaters December 21st. What a very pleasant Christmas present (I hope)!

Icons!

Is it just me, or does that hermionepotter.net site seem to be a little Hitler-y? Can't say anything bad about the site, can't say anything bad about the shippers, can't say anything bad at ALL...even if you are an H/Hr shipper, you can't have a different opinion. Odd.

Anyway, thinking about starting another community. HMS STFU. People want to join. Weird. I'll see what I can do.
