Early Morning Bread and Circuses

Got up at 5am to watch That Wedding in London. I'm in it for the fascinators and the military uniforms. (And thanks for the drive-by body shame, broadcasters! I seriously needed to feel bad about my waist at six in the fucking morning.) Should've gone more like this, but we can't have everything. And LOL WUT I've played the processional they used. Oh, high school marching band...

Moving on...

Due to conversations with [personal profile] artimusdin and [personal profile] jukeboxhound (Why do all of my creative things seem to have this introduction?), apparently I resemble pre-Nibelheim!Sephiroth. Yeah, I don't know, either. So, there also need to be thematically accurate icons. Two Sephiroth icons, with a caption picked from a wank on "Xmas" from last year.

[icons] [fst] The End is Fucking Nigh.

Well, I've made it under the wire (thought not for Greenwich Time. Damn.). Not a lot of blogging tonight, or during this weekend, for that matter. Still, I figure there should be a little fandom love right before the end.

First, some icons. Started off with the epic wank for book six, and how the parties invovled refered to themselves. Obviously, the parallels needed to be drawn. You know the drill:

            


Next, a playlist! We can't have an apocolypse without a playlist!

John Williams - Prologue
Required by law when referencing Harry Potter. It's an earworm, too.

Carl Orff - O Fortuna
Connotations of major battles, as whenever this song is used in media, you see some sort of dramatic conflict. The lyrics themselves have whining about how things aren't the way they should be. Not fair, guys.

R.E.M. - It's the End of the World As We Know It
Well, the end of new canon, so the world is ending. Also, crazy batshit for the impending explosion of wank.

Demon Lemon - The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
This is it. Book seven. Final battle. "Only one will survive, I wonder who it will be?" As if there's even a freaking doubt...

Tom Lehrer - We Will All Go Together When We Go
We're all going to be drowned by the wank, so let's just enjoy it, okay?

Richard Wagner - Ride of the Valkyries
Hey, it's the Potterdammerung, right? We need to have a nice reference to Norse mythology.

Well, got off my ass and made Chofi.net newly pretty. Guess who the layout stars? (points to icon)

Well, I wanted to get my Potterdammerung icons up today, but I'm beat after swimming. So, here're two Crisis Core ones. Credit if taken, etc., etc.:

So, I managed to clear out a good forty percent of my hard drive space by migrating my anime/cartoons over to DVD RW's. I am sure this new space will be filled with mp3's and my Photoshop putterings.

Did some cleaning out and reorganizing of my room over the weekend. Damn, there was a hella lot of paper that I needed to dump. Though amusingly, I've found Ancient Relics: from [livejournal.com profile] yohtan, there's her Christmas card from 1998 and this fanart of Sephiroth and Zack she did for me during high school, some of my school pictures from fourth grade, and a page I printed out from my Mary Sue. I also found a box of notes and letters from another high school friend, whom I've parted with as part of the fallout that was The Unpleasantness.

Wangst goes WHERE? )

Yeah. Anyway...

I'm browsing around coms and noticed someone using one of my icons without crediting me. I'm kind of jazzed; usually it's their use by [livejournal.com profile] artimusdin or someone snagging them from Fandom Wank that gets them spread about. Though, damn it, I really need to remake the one they're using... at least make it look clearer or something. Damn, I hate being a perfectionist...

That's the only reason why they do this to me.

I like Cloud's face. It's pretty, but it's not frail-uke-princess-hold-me levels of pretty. He's a blond in his early twenties, and in personal experience blond males tend to stay baby-faced a bit longer. The same goes for his lean frame. It fits. I'm sure this is all to give a bit better credence to the Wall Market event in my mind.

I also like that the Buster Sword looks like it's gone through hell, because it has. I could get wanky over the fact that it's the original design and not the one shown in Advent Children/Crisis Core, but this is also OGC!design Cloud (see belt and Soldier insignia).

Also, he's got a pretty nice ass.

Yes, I realize that I am, indeed, going to hell.

This year, my towel is a shrunken beach towel of a sunset and dolphins. The colors are dark, appropriate for mourning, and you can't forget the dolphins. I think I'll go through Hitchhiker's again today, even if it's out of my queue's order.

No one'd happen to have an mp3 of "So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish," would they? You know your Google-fu is weak when the mp3's you've found are poorer in sound quality than the opening found on You Tube.

Now, for the other end of my subject line.

Today's also the thirtieth anniversary of the release of Star Wars, so I thought I'd do a few things to commemorate. So, links and icons. First, a set of links, mainly Episode One trailer parodies because it was like everyone was going batshit for the movie. Then the new trilogy came out and, well... yeah. And someone needs to rework Crisis Core footage to it. Come on, damn it, you know you want to.

Star Wars Gangsta Rap Something of a radio edit--this is You Tube, after all--but I like it.
The Saga Begins Trailer, Eva version
The Saga Begins Trailer, South Park version

So, now, Squeenix Icons. I was just going to post the Star Wars-y ones, but I might as well show the others while I'm at it.

3 Final Fantasy XII
5 Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
4 Final Fantasy VII
Because we all know that FFXII is Star Wars with chocobos. )

[icons] FFXII. Again.

More FFXII icons. All done today, with my trusty Photoshop. The Party tends to veer towards some RPG stereotypes, so I had to do something. That, and I want some of my personal running gags to become memes. Because really, Princess Powergamer > Princess Hoochie Skirt, right?

Look! One of those icon table-things! )

More iconery. The Itadaki chibi are adorable. So, so adorable. There will be more. Let's ignore the shameless Balthier fangirling

...it's late, I'm tired, and I really should have waited until I gathered the whole set, but damn it, I want to have something to show. Ganked from official CG and Itadaki Street Special.

Went shopping with [livejournal.com profile] yohtan and [livejournal.com profile] sumanai. The conversation went to Kingdom Hearts II and then to icons. Somehow, Mythbusters got involved, and so, this icon set. Variations on the same theme. One KH2, two LO. Credit if ganked.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! )

Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] sumanai, I got some FF7 omake things from a yaoi manga she bought in New York. I promised bases, and so I shall give. I've also got one Mythbusters base, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] artimusdin, and an icon I made for FW.

Give credit where credit's due.

...are belong to us. )

I'm going to hell.

So, had [livejournal.com profile] yohtan and [livejournal.com profile] sumanai over on Sunday. They watched me play SC3, with the slash-tastic endings that Fuckstick Kilik and Maxi can have. They also saw the trainwreck of a character design that is Olcadan. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] senkami not getting a meme, these icons germinated. Cut to save your sanity.

O RLY? )

Icon dump.

Icon spree. Mainly Last Order, with two Advent Children and one Kingdom Hearts. Some in-jokes. Credit if ganked.

So, thanks to the madness that is CrystalWank, and the fact that I have [livejournal.com profile] artimusdin to talk to, I have some FF7 icons up for grabs. (Including my first animated one. Go easy on me.) Just mention me if you want to use them, you know the drill...
Did I mention I was a fan of Sephiroth/Zack/Cloud? )

[livejournal.com profile] senkami, this is all your fault. The image came into my mind and wouldn't go away.

Mekara Beam! )
