What do you all think of this icon? Too fast?
Here are the icons I was talking about on Saturday.


There had to be one, didn't there...

The cats, Smudge and Muffin, are growing fast; not surprising considering they seem to be walking alimentary tracts. They went to the vet's for their injections yesterday, with some bloodshed. The vet just picked them up, jabbed them, and squirted them with flea-killer, while they dangled from her hand looking indignant. Smudge tends to go AWOL, but I've discovered that he usually ends up asleep on a potato sack behind the utility-room door. I've convinced Fin to climb on my knee by holding up a spoonful of kitten food, at some cost to my jeans.
I saw it with [livejournal.com profile] elerrina_amanya the other day. The main problem I had with it was the length; too many things had to be left out, including most of the Wickham plot, which means there was no red herring for Elizabeth. And Lydia's elopement must have come completely from left field for anyone who hadn't read the book.
The Bennets in one way were too nice (Mary wasn't snooty enough, and Lydia and Kitty were giggly rather than flirty. Even Mrs Bennet was toned down a few notches.), apart from the eavesdropping. On Bingley's proposal and all! I'm surprised he didn't flee then and there. Diffident!Bingley was rather funny and likeable, if not exactly canon, and you could really see the good side of Darcy in the second half of the film. I liked Charlotte Lucas as well, the actress got across her plight of an unmarried 27-year-old in a way that the BBC didn't really.

Miss Bingley's actress I can't quite place—some UK soap? I wasn't convinced by her sleeveless ballgown; it kept looking like her corsets to me. And on the subject of clothes, why was there so much nightclothes interaction? Darcy's motive for hand-delivering his letter (much curtailed, of course, in the film) was probably to avoid the servants' gossip, which would have been achieved really well by visiting her in her bedroom after she had retired. Oh, and Mr Bennet talks about powdering his hair or something in the book, whereas in the film he didn't even seem to shave. And the Bennets are more close to their farm than the Bingleys, but I can't believe that they and their visitors would have walked through it every time they went out of the house.

Oh, and could someone please cast Lydia as a blonde or something, so that I don't have to spend the first ten minutes wondering which is Kiity and which is Lydia?

But I did enjoy the film, although it was no substitute for the book, or the beloved BBC version. Very nice visually—and for the making of icons, of course. I've done a few bases myself.


25 Elizabeth Bennet bases )

Comment, credit, and if you make icons out of them, I'd be interested to see them.

The preview pics are calm, geeky, giggly, irate, nervous and
, in that order.

Download it here. Contains RotS spoilers , for the two people on the net who haven't yet seen it.

How to use moodthemes )

Comment, credit me in your userinfo, don't
bother hotlinking unless you can make a theme out of the only 6 pics on the
server. Some of the moods have alternative pics for them inside the ZIP file.
You can choose which ones to use and upload. If the server goes down down me an
email for the ZIPs.

Other moodthemes may be found here.

I thought that the text on the first three was singularly appropriate.

Comment, credit is nice but not necessary, not hotlinking.
Now that the DVDs are out and there are lots of OT screencaps, if one can find them, I have updated my Luke and Leia moodthemes:-

All the preview pics are exanimate, geeky, giggly, mellow, pensive and tired, in that order.

And gakked from everyone:

There's a huge chunk of you out there whose LJs I read every day - but in a lot of cases, I don't know how old a lot of you are, or where you live, or basic, normal things.

This is the problem with LJ - we all think we are so close, and while we know about the day-to-day, there's still a lot we don't know about each other. So let's rectify it.

I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. I promise, I will not make fun of you, or say who asked what; I won't divulge any social security numbers and stuff, but I'll try to answer everything - personal, fandom - whatever.

I then invite you to do the same. Remember, seriously basic stupid questions, don't be embarrassed, you would be really shocked what I don't know about you.

PrincessLeia themeid is 29635
Luke themeid is 26537
1. Go to one of the themes (I have made a Luke theme and a Leia theme) and pick the mood theme you want. From there open the link and copy the set of all the links and numbers. This is the actual mood theme, so you need to have this.
Note: If you have your own site that allows direct linking, it would be great if you'd host the theme there instead of linking to mine. My bandwidth is tight. Drop me a line and I'll send you the zipped files.

2. Go to the command console here and put in the title and a description of what the moodtheme is. For example, moodtheme_create "Luke" "Too much cuteness". You must have the moodtheme_create first and then what you want the name to be in " ".

3. After this, the console will give you a number. Use this number and change all the numbers in my set to that number. For example, if mine is

moodtheme_setpic 19658 15 http://www.catofthejedi.users.btopenworld.com/luketheme/happy.jpg 100 60

Then you would want to change the 19658 to the number that the console gave you. Do this for all the setpics.

4. Copy your new setpics and paste them into the console. Press execute and you should have your new moodtheme. Go to the modify.bml page. On the drop-down menu to change your moodtheme, scroll right to the bottom, and under Personal Themes there should appear, eg, "Luke". Select that and you're off!
