28 icons: Almost Famous and Matt Nathanson [19 Sep 2006|03:38pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Ok, ok, so one could say I'm back... at last! I would have wanted to be back earlier and with newer material, but this is all I have to offer so far. They're a bunch of icons I did on a few variations of Almost Famous caps. They're a bit different, and I'm not entirely happy but I've had them stored for ages and wanted to offer you guys something. Newer stuff will have to wait a tiny bit longer, since my PSP went weird and I'm having to download it again (grrrr) Still, enjoy these, and I'll try my best to come back with more and better asap :)

olderchests is back in business [30 Aug 2006|06:01pm]
[ mood | grateful ]

Hello everyone!

I don't know if anyone on my friends list will still remember me, but if anyone does, I'm pleased :) Just wanted to thank those of you who still keep me on their flists for hanging in there, and announce that, after a year living abroad, I'm going back home. That will mean me posting the icons I'd stored in my comp but hadn't had the chance to post, and, better even, I'll be going back to icon making, which I've missed so much being away. There might even be a couple of new additions to the usual people/shows I icon, you never know... anyway, I'll be looking forward to being back in business and interacting with all of you lot again. Til then, thanks again for not de-friending me, I'll try and reward you with the best icon making I can :)

Keep your eyes open for that.

51 icons: 13 DC // 11 Mraz // 5 Gavin DeGraw // 20 blanks // Various [09 Jan 2006|09:56pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

First of all, I'm so sorry everyone for the huge delay in posting new icons. I have been away for the past (almost) 4 months, studying abroad, and I had no access to PSP or anything like it, so it has only been during the Christmas holidays that I've been able to make these. They're not much, but they're all I've had time to do. I'm going back to Germany in a couple of days, so this will be all for a while - though a shorter while this time - until I come back in early March again for holidays, ready for some more icon making. Til then, enjoy!

I miss my flist! [05 Dec 2005|06:14pm]
[ mood | calm ]

Hallo hallo from the world of Erasmus!

It has been ages since I last posted and I know last time I promised I would make some icons while I was at home, but sadly my comp broke while I was there and I came back without having made them. Still, Christmas holidays are approaching and I'm going back home for almost 3 weeks, so I will have time then (since the comp is already fixed!), you can leave your suggestions or whatever on this post. Like I said before, I don't promise I'll fullfill them all, but I'll try! :)

Meanwhile, enjoy! Have a very very nice pre-Christmas (isn't present buying stressful of what?!) and I'll hopefully be back before you know it!

*huuuuugs*

Hello hello... suggestions? [05 Oct 2005|12:20pm]
[ mood | complacent ]

Well hi everyone!

Yet again, I have been absent for a while, things are pretty crazy when you're an exchange student and I've had time for nothing but I'm back... temporarily.

First of all, for those of you who asked, I'm in Germany! I know, weird! It's a much better place than I thought it would be and I'm enjoying it so much - partly cos lecture time hasn't started yet I suppose =P

Second and most importantly, I am going home, back to Spain, tomorrow, spending a week of holidays there. Since I will hopefully have some computer time to myself, I will try and make one or two batches of icons before I come back. I thought, that since I have been away for so long, I would pay you guys a little treat and let you decide what those batches are going to be... so I'm open to suggestions! Whatever gets most, I'll do. And if I like any a lot, I'll do that too :)

Note this isn't a requests post, just a suggestion of what you guys would like to see. So... comment away! :D

EDIT: Did I mention I'm seeing JASON MRAZ opening for James Blunt in England, in February?? YAAAAAAAY! At last! After almost 4 years! *does happy dance*

Just saying hi! [12 Sep 2005|03:02pm]
[ mood | content ]

I'm sorry I've been away for so long. I don't have much time these days. I've moved to a new country, where I'll be studying all year and this is the first time I've had enough time to get my hands on a computer and check out how the journal was going. I will hopefully be on more often from now on but the icon making is still on the air, at least for a while.

I really really wanted to thank all the peopel who've added this journal so far, I was so nicely surprised when I came back after a week and saw the number of friends had increased so much. Thank you!! I'll try my best not to let you down.

Just hope you're all doing fine :) Be back soon!

song meme! again! [03 Sep 2005|09:16pm]
[ mood | rushed ]

On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first 25 songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing), and write down your favourite line of the song. Try to avoid putting the song title in the line. Then, have your friends comment and see if they know the songs.

1. nostalgia's thick as the August air
2. could it be the taste was bittersweet when it all comes down to your defeat
3. she's mostly a ghost the way she watches over me
4. paint me in a different light, shed me yet another coat of skin
5. where did you go? cause the tequila from your kiss is still around
6. love, it can break your heart, but that's where real love starts
7. did I make you nervous? did I ask for too much? was I not deserving one second of your touch?
8. this was all sweet once when i was fingertips and innocence
9. tonight, sleep tight, and build your nest upon my shoulder
10. fumbling down a road lined with signs, it's obvious I'm in the wrong direction
11. take everything I own, take it, take control, you will feel better, you will feel whole
12. and though the world is big and wide what I want is peace inside
13. making plans for some future heaven, some cocoon for eternal life
14. I finally picked out my cloud, it's the one over there surrounded by all that air
15. she's my angel, she's a little better than the one that used to be with me
16. I should get some sleep because tomorrow might be good for something
17. well there is no resolution when the revolution's dead, so I'm left with no solution for the voices in my head
18. look at the stars look how they shine for you
19. suppose I said you're my saving grace
20. I'm high on forever and always together and I'm coming down
21. I hope you make it to Heaven, waiting for life here on earth
22. dreams, inconsistent angel things, horses bred with starlaced wings
23. I tried to wear another face just to make you proud, just to make you put me in my place
24. my head is a box filled with nothing
25. the price of a memory is the memory of the sorrow it brings


I'm screening comments just ot make it more interesting :P Now... guess away! EDIT: Forgot to screen comments the first time around. Now I have. Sorry!

just cos I'm such a sucker for memes [20 Aug 2005|12:49am]
[ mood | curious ]

stolen from honestly_undone

DIRECTIONS: List ten songs that you're currently digging. It doesn't matter what genre they're from, whether they have words, or even if they're no good. They must be songs that you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the ten songs and their artist(s), and then tag five other random people to see what they're listening to.

1. Mon Essentiel - Emmanuel Moire

I heard this song on French TV a while ago and wrote some of the lyrics down so I'd search and download it, but then forgot. Until a few days ago. Since then it's already reached my iTunes Top 10, w00t! I'm thinking of making a Martin/Sam layout with it.

2. Unplayed Piano - Damien Rice
Can anyone NOT like this song? So beautiful. I love how well Damien's and Lisa's voices match. Again, as always, Damo's lyrics are so moving "the moon goes bright the darker they make my night"

3. Burning Bridges - Jason Mraz
It's the FULL version!! I cannot express with words how much I adored the unfinished version, and at first I thought it had lost some of its power when finished but it's grown so much on me it's become one of my all-time Mraz favourites.

4. Clockwatching - Jason Mraz
I've yet to decide a favourite from his new album but this song has many chances of being it.

5. Caravane - Raphaël
Again, discovered on French TV and now I'm hooked. In fact, I've downloaded the whole album, but if I had to pick out one song right now it would be this. It makes me think of travelling, and freedom, and since that might be my life this year, if all goes well, it makes me hope.

6. Small Town Boy - Josh Kelley
Wow. I've been so absolutely dumb not to check him out before, when I finally did I wanted to hit myself in the head for it. So far, this is my favourite of his. "express your fears to a fresh pair of ears" I am in love with that line.

7. Zapatillas - El Canto Del Loco
Nobody on my flist knows them, but I still wanted to put this song here cos reminds me of so many things. Partying with my friends this summer has been so much fun, this has been our song. Wherever I am this year, I know when I hear this I'll think of my friends. If any of you don't mind music in Spanish I'd recommend you check it out (or anything by this band really!)

8. Wish You Were Here - Ryan Adams
One of my new Ryan Adams favourites.

9. Mrs. Potter's Lullaby - Counting Crows
Most amazing Counting Crows song EVER. Screw Monica Potter. I want it to be written for me.

10. Caroline - David Gray
It's been one of my favourites of his since I bought A New Day At Midnight, but then I sort of forgot about it. For some reason I stopped listening to it, until recently. David Gray's is one of my favourite voices, so powerful and so characteristic, it shines so much on this song. I doubt 'Caroline' is a fan favourite, I've never really known why I liked it so much, but I really do. Esp when he sings "the final war, a steel-eyed dinosaur"

I know I always say this, but particularly this time DO NOT HOTLINK pretty pretty please... it'll just kill the little bandwith I'm given, and eventually my hosting would be ruined - so no more graphics! Just save all this stuff on your comp and upload it somewhere else if you want to use it. I recommend http://www.imageshack.us - it's free, and lets you upload tons of images.

You know the rest: comment, credit & enjoy!

PS: Isn't my Sam/Martin icon the happiest ever? *sigh* I love it

I've always underestimated how awesome it is to have 7 new CDs to discover and not have a moment without brilliant new music to hear :D

PPS: You Counting Crows fans out there... what is your favourite album by them? I'm curious. I'm trying to make up my mind and never seem to settle. I was wondering what other people thought.

"it's the heart that matters more" [10 Aug 2005|11:06pm]
[ mood | okay ]

*waves flist*

Hello everyone!

To anyone wondering (few, I suppose) my absence is due to holidays and me being away most of the time. I'm (sort of) back but the comp I work on for graphics making isn't working so for now I'm not sure I'll be able to make many icons... I'll try and adapt myself to this one, but I can't promise anything. Meanwhile, I've already done this on my personal journal but still...

Ask me for "top five" lists of pretty much anything, and I will list you my top five of that thing or things.

Then do this meme in your LJ.
(You can skip that last bit though)

Hope all your summers are as fun as mine has been so far :)
