Okay, so who knows about customizing LJ styles? I haven't the vaguest fucking idea how to do this. Anybody know and willing to toss out some advice and/or links?

Seriously, I hate this fucking theme, and I can't find anything much better. Are there others I don't know about?

FUCK. I HATE BEING FORCED INTO THINGS LIKE THIS.

It's already killing any impulse I have to write. That plain black page was a huge deal for me. Now wrangling with these UGLY FUCKING PAGES that do nothing for me is pissing me off and depressing me.

You guys have really nice pages. Where the FUCK can I get stuff like that? Because the stuff I'm seeing is utter, utter shit.

Goddamnit.

I can't access my Friends page. Not the main one, or any custom group. I just get redirected to a "feed" page. Is anyone else having this problem?

Looking for info

I'm forming a new C/Z fic, which I hope my Muse will not snatch out of my hands. (He's done that, you know.) And I'm looking for some info.

Does anyone here know Chicago? Areas, locations, things like that. I'm looking for a sense of how the city is laid out demographically, who lives where, like that. And maybe a couple of specifics. If anyone knows the city well enough to answer some questions along those lines, I'd be ever grateful.

*grin*

I'm messing around with some icons, and I'd like to take one image and make it semi-transparent so I can lay it over another image and get a double-image effect. Anybody know how to do that? I'm using PS7.

Does anybody have the original pic from my icon? I thought for sure I had it saved somewhere, but I'm unable to find it.

I really NEED to see this pic again. Anybody help? *bats eyes*

Hi, everyone!

I've added a few more items to my selling post - a couple of posters and magazines from Japan, of Elijah, Orlando, and the LOTR cast, and the issue of Flaunt Magazine that featured Elijah. These are all in wonderful condition and quite gorgeous. I'll be putting them up on eBay tomorrow evening, so take a look now and snag them if you like.

I've pinned my selling post to the top of my LJ, so if you want to see these lovely things, just go to my main page and look at the post - the new items are under the cut marked "Actor Items".

*hugs*

Hi, everyone!

Today and tomorrow I'll be putting up some beautiful prints by German artist Sulamith Wulfing, at eBay. She did fantasy/fairy tale illustrations in a delicate Art Deco influenced style. Here and here are the first two I've put up at eBay. If you're interested in beautiful fantasy art, please take a look at them and tell me if the style appeals to you. If so, I'll revise my selling post to include the rest of the prints as I put them up, and you'll be able to get any of them from me direct from me if you like. (There are some Christmas images, and a couple from Anderson's "The Little Mermaid", as well as other lovely things.) I will offer these prints to my LJ friends for $7.50. :)

Hi, everyone!

I'm updating my selling post with two items today: an LOTR Lorien mallorn cloak pin, and a really cute Mickey Mouse tank top. The pin is an original sterling silver piece, the kind that came out when the films debuted (not one of the cheap knockoffs you see around), meant to be worn with the beautiful elven cloaks. The tank tap is a soft gray material, with a glittery Mickey Mouse print. If you're interested, take a look at my post!

I'm close to making my goal, so I'm hoping you'll spread the word if you haven't already. Have a good evening, everyone!

Today I've got a really cute little item. It's a set of 6 LOTR postcards designed by a Japanese fan artist. (I think the artist is Little Ones.) They were originally bound together as a calendar, each postcard having a little calendar strip at the top with two months in it. The backs are printed with the usual postcard separations for text and address, and the calendar strips can be cut off so the card can be mailed. They are sweet and funny pics of hobbits and the Fellowship. If you're interested, please take a look over at my selling post. They're in the section "Doujinshi and other fanart".

I've updated again, with three large-format portrait photos of Frodo. These were put out by New Line Pictures at the time of FOTR and 2T. 10"x15", big and beautiful!

Hi!

Today I'm updating my selling post with a collection of Oscar ads for LOTR, from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. These were trade industry journal -only ads, which appeared for one day each, back when the films were being considered for Oscars. I've just added a group of 8½"x11" ads (under the section "LOTR Oscar Ads") and will be adding a bigger group of 11"x14" ads - those will be even more spectacular. :)

So take a look and see if there's anything you like. And pimp this addition if you can, because there's some really gorgeous there, and more on its way. (FYI, this icon is from one of the ads.)

I've updated my selling post with some STAR TREK t-shirts. They're from Teefury, a company that designs awesome fandom shirts in limited editions. I got these just after the first new ST film opened, in 2009. They've been sealed up tight in their mailing wrapper until just a few days ago, when I opened it up to photograph them. They are thus in mint, never-worn condition.

If you're not into Star Trek but know someone who is, please let them know these great shirts are available. :)

I've posted two interesting little collectible items at my selling post. They're a small metal penny bank and pencil holder. I got them at ORC back in the day, and they're really cute. The bank is a Legolas item, and the pencil holder is Legolas & Gimli (or Legolas/Gimli, if that's your idea of a good time.)

More goodies!

I've posted pics of 27 doujinshi for sale. These are Japanese fan comics, drawn and produced by wonderful fan artists in that country. We have nothing like them here in the States! The ones I have are mostly F/S, with a couple of other pairings like M/P, F/A, A/B, and a couple of gen ones, too. They're all awfully cute, and would make unusual gifts as well.

You can find them at my selling post here.

Please let people who might be interested know, and if you know of any comms where you can pimp this, please do.

Generous offers

Hey, folks!

When I first posted about selling my stuff, a couple of you asked about my situation. So here's a capsule rundown... )

So that's my situation. You can see why I'm not inclined to talk much about my life here, as I would be bumming people out constantly, and I don't want to do that. Which leads me to this post.

When I posted about selling my stuff, a couple of you asked for my Paypal address, which I assume you wanted because you kindly intended to send some bucks to help me out. At first I didn't want to post it, not out of pride (I don't have any, believe me), but because I really, REALLY don't want to be "that" person, who starts whining for money every time there's a problem and eventually ends up making everyone eyeroll. But things are really hard this year, so I've done some thinking on this, and here's what I've decided:

If any of you want to send money to help me out but aren't interested in the items I've put up, I will take it with great gratitude, but you're going to get something back. I don't know what it is, but you'll get something for your money. I will look at my LOTR collection and send you an item based on what I know of your fannish tastes and what I've got to send. I've got lots of interesting stuff, and I'm fairly sure that most of it is things you probably don't have lying around (although the gods know I could be wrong about that). So if you don't want to buy what I'm putting up outright, you'll still get a neat thing, and if it's something you already have, you can use it as a holiday gift for someone else. That way, everybody wins, and I don't feel like a putz (a feeling I've had quite enough of).

So my Paypal address is under the next cut, and if you want to be Santa, go for it. (Once again, please pimp if you can.) Many hugs to all of you, and I'll be posting with more items today.

Blessings!

Hey, folks!

Circumstances being what they are - pretty damn grim - I find I have to start selling off some of my stuff. One of the things I'm putting up at eBay this week is this lovely drawing by Aina Baggins.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251396319384

She drew it for me some years ago. Alas, I must part with it in order to have some chance of paying my electric bill this month. If you or anyone else you know would like to have this lovely thing, you can either bid on it there on eBay, or let me know you want to buy it and I'll yank it off auction for you. The Buy It Now price I have is $19.95, and mailing would be a couple of dollars on top of that. (I have a handling charge on it there, but I would drop that for any LJ friends.)

I'm sorry to have to sell off lovely things like this, but I'm struggling desperately just to keep the lights on. (Forget frivolities like going out, seeing movies, eating away from home, or anything else - I basically stay home all the time, with Netflix my one thing that isn't bare bones bill-paying, and that's because it's only $8 a month.) So it's come to this, sad to say.

I have other LOTR items, like Japan mags, Oscar ads and such. Like I said, if you're interested or know anyone who is, reply here.

And PLEASE pimp this post and let anyone who's looking for fan gifts know to ask me. Like I said, need to create some revenue here.

Hugs!


ETA: Sold already! Wow, thanks so much! I have some more wonderful F/S stuff I'll be selling (some slash art and beautiful F/S doujinshi from Japan, and other lovely goodies), and I'll post again either today or tomorrow, so check back to my LJ. (I will post the items here on LJ before I put them up on eBay, to give any friends first crack.)

ETA the Second: For any of you who are here from other posts or comms, I'm selling stuff at this post here. F/S, other LOTR and there will be some other stuff as well. I'll keep the items just to LJ for two days after adding, then they will be at eBay. (I can start a Buy It Now there as well if you don't want to buy directly.)

Is there anyone on my list who lives in Australia or thereabouts? (I don't know who's active around here and who's not anymore.) I'm looking to get a DVD that was released there and am trying to figure out if it would be cheaper to get it from Amazon (where it's going for over $30US) or from someone who's actually in Oz. The DVD is "12 Angry Men", the 1988 remake starring Jack Lemmon.

Anyone?
