Looks like I still have a chance at getting the barista job! *dances* I had given up on it, since they said they'd call mid-last-week (and I kept putting off forgetting to call them), but I just got a call and they said I did really well with the try-out and invited me back for an interview with the manager (who had been away when I was there) next Tuesday. Keep all fingers crossed for me, please? Because I really, really want this job.

Anyway, I finally remembered to listen to the new(-ish) Mountain Goats album, and I really like it. Quick song-by-song thoughts:

Heretic Pride )

And then the new Mindless Self Indulgence album leaked, and it's fabulous. Again, short thoughts while listening for the first time:

If )

Lastly, in a random fit of creativity, I made icons. 30 all in all, a random mix of MCR and FBR bands. Have a preview:



The rest is at my icon journal.

01. Early renewal for SPN! Smallville, too, not that I have finished season two yet. :| And a bunch of others, and ANTM. Speaking of which, who wants to discuss the first two episodes? It's my weekly dose of crack and I need to talk about it.

02. Belated once again *sigh*: Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] severina2001!! ♥

03. I wanted to finish my Mighty Boosh icons, but things are just too busy right now. So I posted what I got. Here's a preview:



Ten more over here at my icon journal.
herzverstreut_bu: (P!atd - ryan - cheers!)
1. Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] caesaria82!! ♥ ♥ ♥

2. [livejournal.com profile] refche and I challenged each other to a band icon battle a while ago, and I posted the results yesterday. It was so much fun and while I can't say anything about my own, [livejournal.com profile] refche's icons are gorgeous. Come check out all 60 of them over here at my icon journal, or here at hers. Teasers of mine:



(The Mighty Boosh ones I promised aren't quite done yet, but should be ready around the weekend.)

3. I was reading the Siegessäule, a free queer monthly magazine, yesterday, and the Panic show (that I will not be attending, sadly) was their top concert tip for this month. The text cracked me up So here's a translation )

1. A day late, but - happy happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] lennongirl!! I hope you had a fantastic day with lots of booze and hot boys, and that you will continue to be a big fat success in the year to come. ♥ ♥ ♥

2. I made icons. Feel free to guess the fandom. :| Shameless pimp:



15 P!atD, 10 FOB and 12 MCR all in all, at my icon journal.

3. [livejournal.com profile] nairie, [livejournal.com profile] shivaluna and I saw A Midsummer Night's Dream at Deutsches Theater yesterday. Cut for long, rambling theater geekery. )

4. I feel like there was something else, but - maybe not.
herzverstreut_bu: (Heroes - Hiro - *pokes*)
a) I made icons. Just a few, because my muses are not quite there, but I won't get around to doing any more anytime soon, so might as well post them now. Have a preview:



11 Heroes and 11 SPN all in all, found here

b) Here was supposed to be some out-of-the-ordinary Christmas music, but apparently I've burned most of it on CDs that I need to find first. :| So watch out for it tomorrow.

c) Because I'm the sheepiest sheep ever, Stuff my stocking? )

d) Off to work in a moment, and then Earthdawn tonight. Life busy.

Note to self: To bring water to boil, the stove should be turned on. :|

Anyways, I feel like iconing, but can't think of anything, so - comment to this post and I'll make you an icon or two based on one of your interests.

(I decide which one, but feel free to nudge me in a direction or provide pictures for one. Also, totally free for all, so comment even if you're just randomly passing by. ;) )

There are fireworks going off somewhere and I can hear, but not see them. No fun. *mopes*

Posted a bunch of new footie icons (mostly really simple ones/bases) here. LESS THAN ONE DAY! *bounces* Yes, I am excited, just in case you hadn't noticed already.

This interview is both awesome (because Jon Stewart pwns that guy) and terrifying (because Bill Bennett's views on gay marriage are so completely DUMB and yet you know that he - and so many others - won't be convinced even by logic *sigh*)

a) 15 new VM 2x22 icons over at half_by_sea! The unspoilery ones I liked barely enough to use them as teasers in communities, but I'm really happy with how this batch turned out, so... take a look? /self-pimp

b) I realized I never posted the answers to the Guess the Song! that I did a while ago. In case anyone cares )

c) I shall have lunch now and then hop over to [livejournal.com profile] evil_trisha/[livejournal.com profile] nairie's for posing for Trisha's art school application project and helping Dana clean her car. Fun times! :D

d) New Who tonight! Which reminds me of two icons I threw together for someone over at [livejournal.com profile] userpicks yesterday:

herzverstreut_bu: (VM - Cassidy - failure)
I'm making 2x22 icons currently, and... well, this just had to be done. Majorly spoilery icon )

Ok, I'll really shut up about VM now. And I really should go to bed. I haven't slept for *counts* 35 hours or so. *yawns* ETA: Yeah, still not sleeping. Can't get myself to. *yawns some more*

ETA: Fun meme nicked from [livejournal.com profile] geekgirlofdoom: It's very simple: you ask me any question (usually it's about yourself) and I answer you with a song that's currently playing on iTunes).
herzverstreut_bu: (Alice - Happy Birthday!)
The very happiest of birthdays to [livejournal.com profile] moonix!! I hope you have a fantastic new year! ♥

Also, I've posted some new icons - 11 Doctor Who "Tooth and Claw", 7 football ones (Germany and some England) and 5 "Beautiful Thing" here. Have a preview:

01. ... 02. ... 03.


Thirdly - I can't resist random music memes. Playlist on shuffle, once again )

Lastly, with no more need for keeping my icons on one page, I'm going to do more public entries in the future. Like this one. I just sort of feel like it. :)
herzverstreut_bu: (Default)
1) Since everyone encouraged me, I present: [livejournal.com profile] half_by_sea! From now on, this shall be my icons journal and I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine! \:D/ There's no new content yet, and I will probably announce updates on here, too, but - feel free to add it already! [livejournal.com profile] half_by_sea! /pimp

2) Does anyone know how to make it so that in Generator style it doesn't always show the name and icon with each new entry?

3) [livejournal.com profile] nebulein, thank you so much for the sweet card! :X

4) I haven't forgotten about music and the question-question of the poll, it's just taking a bit longer than I thought.

5) New Doctor Who tonight! \:D/

So, once upon a long, long time I felt very inspired to make RHPS icons. I capped the movie, made a few icons... and suddenly all the inspiration was gone. And didn't return. I tried other subjects, but not much came out of that, either. Until... [livejournal.com profile] lennongirl told me to join [livejournal.com profile] world_cup_slash and I did and she had a fantastic post about German footie boys, and the prettiness brought my muses right back. Long story made short: Icons!

01. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting... 02. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting... 03. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

+ 19 football, 8 RHPS, 2 QaF US )

I know that all the football icons are just of the German team - if you have your own champion, feel free to point me to a pic and I'll make you another one. :)

P.S. They're having fireworks at Potsdamer Platz AGAIN. What is it lately? Maybe testing for the WC already or something? (Not that I'm complaining... Shiny! :D )
herzverstreut_bu: (FF - River - curious)
First of all - [livejournal.com profile] moonix, I got your letter, thank you soooo much! *loves* I've never eaten pepper chocolate before and it's so yummy! ♥

Secondly, icons! Because with every new obsession comes new iconage. Plus three AtS icons I posted before, because I want to have them in a proper icon post.

01. Image hosting by Photobucket... 02. Image hosting by Photobucket... 03. Image hosting by Photobucket

17 more + 3 re-posted Angel ones )

Take what you want, credit is nice, comments are shiny. ♥

Notice how I have absolutely nothing to say and yet manage to make an entry every single day? Yeah, it's probably not good to be that addicted to LJ. :-S

Anyway. I really want to make icons or something, to counteract the graphics frustration induced by marathon retouching at my job, but everything I want to iconize (AtS, Firefly, RHPS are currently top of my list) steadfastly refuses to cooperate.

So - inspire me, please? *puppy eyes* Give me a pic, a quote, a theme, whatever, and I'll make you an icon (or two, or three). Just make it something more specific than "A QaF icon" or "Something with Simon Tam on it", ok? I guess you could request wallpapers or something as well, I just can't guarantee that I'll get them done.

(P.S. I'm making this public for a reason. I very much doubt that anyone's lurking around here, but if you are or have come across this post by chance, feel free to request something as well!)

I wanted to make Angel (the Series) icons - but all the caps I found were bad quality or too dark to work with. Then I thought I'd make some more DW ones - but my muses refused to collaborate. So I picked a random pic of Christina Ricci that I had on my harddrive and signed up for [livejournal.com profile] 10variations again, because it's a nice quick challenge for getting back into the swing of iconizing. These are the results:

01. Image hosting by Photobucket... 02. Image hosting by Photobucket

And the remaining eight )

Bonus: I re-did my "What Would Freud Say?" icon, because the old one made me cringe (as do most of my older icons *lol*) but I wanted to have one. Feel free to take, if you want:

(Just for the record: While I agree on some of his theories and his books can be an interesting read, I'm not a big fan of Freud. "WWFS?" is more like a running gag amongst my friends. (And the correct answer, of course, would be: "Penis envy, hysteria, castration anxiety, Oedipus."))

Here are the interest icons for those who replied to the other post. :)

Also, once again sorry for the incredible lack of comments on my part lately, I'm just not online much at the moment. *just generally hugs everyone*
herzverstreut_bu: (QaF - artist)
Here are the icons for the interest meme. :) I ended up making only one for each person, because while my creativity is high at the moment, my picture-finding-skills seem to be rather low. :| I'm sorry!

Icons )

I hope I didn't overlook anyone. If anyone else wants one, let me know. :)
herzverstreut_bu: (dw - OT3 like whoa)
I finally finished the icons I've been mentioning for days. It didn't turn out to be as many as I had planned, but I'm all out of Doctor Who creativity now. :( Not of creativity, though, so I'm doing the interest icon meme -

If you'd like me to make you an icon (or two, or three) for an interest of yours (that I pick myself), comment and let me know. :)

Ok, and now on to the icons:

01. Image hosting by Photobucket... 02. Image hosting by Photobucket... 03. Image hosting by Photobucket

16 more random 9th Doctor ones )

There is a nice new icon challenge community that you should all go and join: [livejournal.com profile] 10variations. The goal is to make ten different icons out of one picture, with a few restrictions for each one. It's an interesting exercise in creativity.

I signed up today and, in a sudden fit of creativity, finished all the icons for this claim already. The pic they're all based on is this pretty one of Adrien Brody.

01. Image hosted by Photobucket.com... 02. Image hosted by Photobucket.com

And the remaining eight )

If my amazing creative energy stays the way it is, expect Doctor Who icons very soon. As soon as I have finished the layout for [livejournal.com profile] textsecret, which you all should go and friend, too. Speaking of Dr. Who, any and all fic, picspam or similar recommendations would be... well, fantastic. ;)

Also, a late, but nonetheless superhappy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] charley_ryan! :)

And ATTENTION, GERMAN FLISTERS! Please go and help the lovely [livejournal.com profile] evil_trisha out by telling her your thoughts on patriotism in general and German patriotism (or the lack thereof) in particular, here.

Random idea and thrown together in a few minutes, so there's not much - but I wanted to wish you all a great new year with something other than just words. ♥

+ 03 Lost, 03 QaF, 01 HP, 05 random and the bases )

And with that I WISH YOU ALL THE HAPPIEST NEW YEAR! You're all wonderful, fun and clever persons and I'm so very glad to know you. ♥ ♥ ♥ A special cookie for my flist:
