iconFirst off, I want you to take a look at this:
     The room was filled with bright morning sunlight, illuminating the tiny vibrant pieces of tissue paper falling through space. The confetti continuously sprinkled down, catching in the air, and frolicking its way to the floor. All through the day, confetti softly rained down. By nightfall, the ground was covered with the delicate debris. At dawn, a change could be sensed. The falling confetti was no longer leisurely nor light. The new kind had a purpose, along with a thicker texture, and with little leeway it streamed down, oppressing the colorful mosaic underneath. Glimpses of vibrant colors could still be seen, barely visible. At sunset, crimson and orange hues permeated the room, staining the falling confetti vermilion. By nightfall it was as if the floor was covered in bloody snow, and the room was cold.
     At long last, morning came once more, a weak sunlight spreading across the motley assortment of colors. But the confetti that was now drifting down was once again small, vibrant, and sheer. Slowly, the red ground soaked below, making way for the new layer of the clean confetti. It was a new day.

If you took the time to read it, comment what you think the purpose of it is. Then, you may enlighten yourself here: Confetti.

What’s your favorite genre of music? Mine are classical, rock, alternative, pop, and electronic. One artist from each (not particularly the favorite but one of): Debussy, Eagles, Gorillaz, Rooney, and Crystal Castles. There’s definitely more and stuff in between the lines, but I’m being short and sweet. :D

I wrote a new icon tutorial: Icon Tutorial #2. ^^ Updated icon categories are Femme & Men.

I also have some new pieces of art to share with you! The first is of Robert Downey Jr. (which OMGOMG I forgot to blog about Sherlock Holmes!! shitscrap…do that next time :frus: ) and the second is of Marie Antoinette. The latter is quite random, yes, but both were challenge entries. I’m happy with the way they turned out, especially the RDJ one, but I definitely wouldn’t mind feedback! :) I also have three new retouches: Tom Felton, Uma Thurman, and Courteney Cox (Arquette).



We Bleed the Same

27 December, 2009 Sunday // Life, Resources, Premades

To: Matthew Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme, Dominic Howard
The existence of Muse is a blessing in disguise from the stars.
Listening to “Map of the Problematique” is like being plugged into a drug directly powering my heart. “Knights of Cydonia” is just madness. Exogenesis is unbelievable. It’s actually a waste of time to be talking about your music because I’d rather be listening to it again and again and again.
Matt, your voice and general musical prowess is so goddamn sexy, it makes your giggling elf persona into a whole other sex god. Although I can’t make much excuse for your apparently unbearable stinky feet. But again, you are one of my Alternative King Sex Gods.
Chris, your slap bass alone in “Undisclosed Desires” is the secret underlying sex appeal of the whole song (and who said it’s just Undisclosed Desires??). And your constant headbanging makes me fear for the strings in your neck come old age, but bang it away!
Dom, you are the backbone. The lovable balding Spiderman of Muse. Man, I could die from laughing because the combination of your Slipknot impression and yelling “SIT THE FUCK DOWNNN!” and Matt absolutely cackling in the background is just the epitome of WIN.
And boys, your cover of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” is just so fucking sexy, it’s the only love song I can listen to over and over again. Matt’s voice is contagiously sexy and Dom, your little vocal riff is much appreciated. And Chris, you’re just all the time fantastic, need I say more?
You inspire me in my creative ventures and as a band, have given me two gifts: inspiration and your music.

iconThat was my love letter to Muse. I didn’t want to put any negativity in there, so here’s one qualm. There’s the fact that I can’t enjoy “Supermassive Black Hole” as much anymore because I’ve heard it so many times because of it’s exposure in fucking Twilight. Oh what the fuck. :frus: And apparently there’s another Muse song in the New Moon soundtrack, too—the name escapes me but there’s French in it. I have to say, the only reason why I can conceivably tolerate this and not go into a rampage on Twilight is because I secretly want Jasper Hale for myself. Alice can come, too, she seems chill. ^^ Everything else, MONOTONOUS GARBAGE. Now, moving on to more sitely matters…..
