1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

[livejournal.com profile] lilagrubb picked these icons: )

Desktop meme from [livejournal.com profile] vensre

- Anyone who looks at this meme has to post their own desktop in their LiveJournal.
- Explain in a few sentences why you’re using that wallpaper.
- Don’t change your wallpaper before doing this. The point is to see what you had up!

So yeah, I'll show you mine :D )

This wallpaper is made by [livejournal.com profile] jhava. I've had it for quite a while now (I just checked: 10 months) and I still don't feel the need to change it because this is indeed my Atlantis :D

So, what's more on my desktop:

At the top right there's the rain-radar-map so I'll know what to expect whenever I need to go outside and the analogue clock because with digital I still have to count in my head *bows head in shame*

At the top left are shortcuts to my computer and my folders (yep, josé is my name).

At the top left to right are thirteen clips I downloaded from [livejournal.com profile] katzgalore, because she filmed the London Expo Merlin panel from the direction where I was sitting, so it's almost like being there again :D

To the left top to bottom are my current favorite fanvids. I always have shortcuts to fanvids on my desktop and they're always the kind that make me happy ♥

At the bottom you can see I had photoshop and [livejournal.com profile] vensre's post open while making the screencap.

Now show me yours :D

rodneyscat: (I'm deeply in love with rodney mckay)

1. Comment to this and I will give you 3 people.
2. Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.
3. Provide pictures of the 3 people.
4. Post this meme with your answers.

So, [livejournal.com profile] jhava gave me three names and we agreed that the 'throw off a cliff' bit needs to be taken tongue in cheek. Anyway, I won't even have that problem with these particular names, because hey, the only thing being thrown over the edge is my virtue.

So who did I get? )

"Miss the golden days of the Lord of the Rings fandom? Get homesick for Middle-Earth?

Then this is for you!

You don't need to sign up anywhere to participate. But if you see this on your friends-page and like the idea, please post this text to your LJ to spread the word.

How to participate:

1. Pick a day of the week (or more than one) on which you resolve to always post something LotR-related in March, and let your friends-list know.

2. Go back and read your favourite chapters from the book, or watch the movies again. Let the beauty of LotR inspire you. And then, share the love.

3. Start your subject line with (B2MEM) when you post, and use a "b2mem" tag. This'll make it easy to spot your B2MEM-entries.

No matter if you just ramble about your undying love for LotR, picspam us, post wallpapers, icons, or write fan fic / create fan art, the plan is to get as many LotR-related entries on our friends-pages as possible throughout March.

Sounds good? We've been there, let's go back again!"

I absolutely love that idea! So here's what I'm going to do:

1. I pick Wednesday. So every Wednesday in March I'll make a B2MEM post.

2. I won't have time until 23st of March to actually read the books (I read books, never parts of books, I'm obsessive compulsive like that. No really...), or watch the movies, but I will go check my collection fics and pics and clips.

3. I'll make posts marked as mentioned, with samples of everything that makes me look back on that period with specific warmth and fondness; rps and fps fics, caps from the movies, pics from the cast, vids from interviews etc.

I'm really looking forward to this :D

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next seven sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

Dit kind zal u meer dan zeven dochteren zijn. .... Wie zei dat ook weer? Maria India? Jarings Gonne?
Onder de toebereidselen voor de nachtrust speelt er voortdurend een glimlach om de lippen van Jaakje.

De zomer komt en Sil zet zijn plannen met het wier door.

Since hardly anyone on my list will understand these sentences (but those who can read will most probably know which one it is) I'll tell you something about the book.

It's a very worn one. I got it in 1986 from a colleague who was cleaning her attic and when she came across a couple of books she wasn't interested in anymore she asked me if I would like them, because she knows I have a thing for worn books that show their history. For some reason it doesn't have a date printed inside the book, but it does have a stamp from the bookstore that apparently also was a 'reading library'. The first page is used to stamp a return date, and the first date is February 11th 1949. The last dates are handwritten and don't include a year.

The spine is missing and it's had some water damage at some point, but I love the story, it's got illustrations by Anton Pieck, and I love that I got it from that colleague.

Write 10 different categories of fic, each in 10 words or less. )

Nine fandoms in ten categories, go me! (With the fifth one I had Bruno and Boots in mind by the way.)

rodneyscat: (Default)
The first lines of the last 10 songs I've added on my iPod (if there were more songs by one artist, I just picked one song) Guess the songs! )

Quotes from the last 10 movies I've (re)watched. Guess the movies! )

I see different variations of the same meme on my flist. I'm picking this one:

When you see this, post a quote from Stargate Atlantis in your journal.

Rodney (sitting beside a sleeping Ronon in the infirmary): ...what they call 'piano fingers', so slim, nimble, you know? Really no surprise my family signed me up for lessons. My first teacher of course hailed me as a natural. Big Russian woman, Polanski or Branski, definitely a 'ski.

1. Bold the names of guys you'd definitely shag.
2. Italicize the names of guys you might shag after a little persuasion.
3. Leave the guys who don't do anything for you alone.
4. Put a question mark after the guys you've never heard of. ?
5. Strike the guys you wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.
6. Add four of your own at the end.

Watch me being surprisingly chaste: )

rodneyscat: (guust slaap)
I've worked a lot lately and now I'm too tired to reply/comment etc. I'll have tomorrow afternoon off, so I've got good hope I can catch up with LJ and email tomorrow evening, since I'm not too far behind.

If anyone feels like guessing the songs to these first lines, be my guest.

These were the first 20 songs that popped up when I put my playlist on shuffle:

Now with the answers (and an lj-cut...) )

Watch me wring my hands and tear out my hair in agony behind the cut. )

Boy, I really suck at this meme...

Now I'm going to compare my answers to [livejournal.com profile] princessofg's, from whom I gacked it in the first place!

rodneyscat: (sga david likes joe's butt)
The main purpose of this meme is actually to find out what clips you people like to watch at YouTube. So, I'll start, and if you like you can give your own answers in your journal.

YouTube meme!

Pick 10 YouTube clips that are special to you (no matter if it won't make sense to anyone but you or the quality is bad) and tell us why.

Here are my answers: )

Yeah I know, those are more than 10 links... But it's my meme and I cheat if I want to ;p

rodneyscat: (elijah dj try 17)
While I was folding laundry, ironing and having some coffee (and cookies), I let itunes scramble my 'List of Absolute Favorites' and jotted down every song that came up. Here are the first lines of those songs. If you like you can have a go at guessing which songs by whom.

I've screened comments so everyone who likes to try has a fair chance, no matter the timezone ;)

You know what... I'm not cutting *is a rebel*

Edited to add the answers and put the whole shebang behind a cut. )

rodneyscat: (david geek)
Huh, I commented to [livejournal.com profile] melloniel for this meme, and only after the fact realized that now I had to post it in my own journal too. It's the rules! So here goes:

1. Comment with a request to see absolutely anything on my computer. My desktop, my documents, my bookmarks, my latest works in progress... absolutely whatever you are curious about. Request it.

2. I will respond with a screenshot of the very thing you request.

3. In return, you will spread this meme far and wide. Like a venereal disease.
