For now there will be only recs here

From now on I will only post recs to this journal. My main journals are my livejournal or my dreamwidth (mirror).

Is it a shame...

...to still love this song?

(Huh? Why is embedding you-tube vids not working? Here is the link Double Vision-"Knockin'".

I adore a lot of those songs from the good old 90s. My guilty pleasure, I guess. They are quite appropriate for workout.

Also, I've been wondering where fandom has gone to? IJ seems to be sparsely inhabited as ever. LJ has seen more action in its earlier days. And now there is DW. Where are people nowadays? Where's the action gone to?

I'm on DW, too. If you want to add me, I'm jumilinga over there.

New regular issue! I call it "Seen On My F-List"! :)

No, although you might have thought it, but I am not dead. I just took a little break from my journal. But now I'm back and I bring you a new little regular issue I've wanted to create for a while now. I want to call it "Seen On My F-List". (Heh, am I not inventive when it comes to names? ^^)

So what will this "Seen On My F-List" issue be about?
Click to learn. )

All right, now that you know what this is all about, let's start with the first issue right away!




  • On mission_briefs, a Gundam Wing fic search/find community on LJ, anime_gal22 is looking for a fic and makes a funny typo.

    in the story Heero get's into a relationship with Duo. But when Duo goes on a mission het is presumed dead. Heero trys everything to find Duo.

    LAWL!!! HET is presumed dead! :)

Well, that's it for this issue! Hope you enjoyed it!

What the...?

I just wanted to access my LJ profile, but what I got instead was this:

Livejournal.com is currently unavailable for a brief emergency maintenance. We'll be up again shortly.

Thank you for your patience.

What brief emergency are they referring to, huh?

ETA @ 7:09pm GMT+2: Aahhh, it's back up again!

[project]: SPN newsletter for IJ, vol.2

A while ago, on February 19th to be exact, I created a poll to gather information on how people feel about a SPN newsletter on IJ. Due to a family bereavement at the beginning of March, I haven't had the energy to work on this project. I apologize for the hiatus!

However, now I'm very much in the mood to get this baby going.

Before we get to the results, I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time and effort to vote in the last poll! &hearts

What did we learn from the last poll?
Observe )

+ There will be a newsletter on IJ.
+ The newsletter will cover SPN content on IJ and JF.
+ We still need people who provide links, especially on JF (link hunters).
+ We also need one or two more editors.

More thoughts...
... to chew on. )

I think it's wise to create another poll to determine how people think about those subjects.

Poll: Vol.2
Please take it... )

I'd appreciate it if you could spread the word about this project! Thanks for reading and taking the poll!! &hearts &hearts &hearts

[Archive] Graphics

For a while now I've been contemplating the idea of creating a separate graphics journal. But however I look at it, I always come to the same conclusion: I really don't need another journal. It would be too big a hassle, to tell you the truth, simply because I would have to create one on Insanejournal as well as on Livejournal. Besides I'd rather have all my fanish stuff in one journal.

However I've noticed that it might be a bit difficult to browse my journal for graphics. Of course, I organize everything by tags, but some people who are viewing my journal don't see a tag list in the sidebar due to their own layout settings (I can't live without a sidebar and a tag list in my layouts, so I always have them both visible). For this reason I've decided to make this post where I list all the graphic related tags for easier browsing. It can be considered as a little archive! :)

To the archive )

Me is a deviant now and Bleach obsessed

Today, after months of lurking around deviantart I finally got myself an account there. I don't know why I'm always so hesitant to join a site I really like. It has been the same with last.fm actually or livejournal. Before I got myself an account there, I spent months using and searching through those sites.

Whenever I frequent a site more than three times a week it's usually clear that I will join it in the end. So I can't understand why I always wait months before I do it. *lol* Strange me!

However, the reason to finally join deviantart was a piece of art I came up with while experimenting a bit with PS yesterday. I wanted to try out a few brushes and some colors and filters and the result I ended up with was rather pretty in my opinion, I really couldn't delete it (which I originally intended). I showed it to [info]only_gremo and she said she liked it as well and she could imagine someone wanting to use it as a header or something. So I thought I could use my deviantart account (I'm also reijamira over there, I know I'm very inventive when it comes to names, heh) to share it.

I named it "Discovery" (Hah, again with the names) because Gremo said one can discover many things in it.

Take a look )

On another matter, I finally finished watching all episodes of Bleach there are so far (that makes 161). And I can only say if you are into anime and don't know Bleach yet, then you should consider watching it! I highly recommend it. It's awesome! Such an interesting plot! And so many sexy as hell characters! My two number one favorite charas are Kurosaki Ichigo, the main character, and Grimmjow Jaegerjaques an evil arrogant bastard. :) Those are just two characters I love but there are so many more. Have I mentioned that Bleach is my new fandom? Have I? I'm sure I have.

In case you are now curious as hell, here you can find more information on Bleach:

+ Wiki article about Bleach
+ bleachfan.de (German) Very good German site.
+ bleachportal.net (English) For everything Bleach related

I'm sure there are more sites out there but so far I've only checked out these ones. If you know one that I should know, please do tell me!

SPN Newsletter for fannish stuff on IJ?!

Yesterday I followed a link from the recent issue of [info]meta_roundup to a post by [info]morgandawn in which she raises the question whether there is "any interest in a supernatural newsletter that will cover not only LJ but also JF and IJ supernatural fic and art".

On reading this, I felt compelled to put in my two cents' worth. There already exists a community that covers fannish content here on IJ called [info]spn_newsletter, created on 2007-08-08. Currently it has 53 members and 96 watchers, and unfortunately it hasn't been updated since the day it was created. Meaning except for two introductory posts there has never been an actual newsletter to begin with. And as far as I can tell the two maintainers seemed to have abandoned IJ.

It's really sad in my opinion. I love the SPN newsletter on LJ, it comes in handy if you want to keep track of all the lovely fanart, fanfics and so on posted around there. I know SPN fandom on IJ is not as big and active as on LJ, but at least it's not dead. It's here, it's living and it needs more attention.

To be honest, I've entertained the idea of creating a newsletter community for IJ some time ago when I noticed that [info]spn_newsletter still hadn't updated and fandom around here had grown more active. I know SPN fandom here is not comparable to SPN fandom on LJ, but I think a SPN newsletter on a weekly (or maybe bi-weekly) basis would be great.

I'm also aware of how much effort it is to hunt for appropriate links, as well as editing and all the lovely stuff that comes with it for the actual newsletter. But, oh well, I'm crazy enough happy to volunteer to be an editor. But I don't want to do this all alone. I need at least 2 or 3 people who are willing to help.

So that's why I ask you to fill out the poll. I know you want to anyway. :) )

And it would be great if you could pimp this out! I'd like to know your thoughts on this matter. *is very interested*

New layout and birthday wishes

Ah finally I finished working on this layout. Took me 2 days! The basic codes are by the talented passing_girl @ LJ.

I applied the layout to my LJ at first, then, because I quickly fell in love with it, I wanted to have it here at my IJ as well. Only problem was that passing_girl wrote this layout for Smooth Sailing. Here I use Flexible Squares, which I grew really quite fond of.

And I didn't want to switch my IJ back to Smooth Sailing either, because Smooth Sailing tends to mess up the comment page whenever a thread gets rather long. Some time ago I found a great code for Flexi Squares to pretend this on s2flexisquares @ LJ. I'd rather not miss out on these codes.

Well, as it was, I had to re-write passing_girl's codes so that they would work for my Flexi Squares layout.

What a strain but it was worth it! Now I have a new and very shiny layout which fits so perfectly to my Sam and Dean header. Awww and the sidebar. I love it. I never had a layout like this before. Whoot!

But enough with the incomprehensible babble, on to more important things.

Today I want to wish two of my friends a very happy birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear [info]mllesatine and [info]pkabyssinian!!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Party hard, guys! :)

That snap crap turned on in my LJ? WTF???

Oh people, wtf??? One minute or so ago I was cruising my f-list over on that crappy site that shall not be named, when I noticed it: The snap crap was turned on without me DOING IT!!!

WTF is going on??? I thought it would be turned on ONLY in freshly created journals!!

Well, that makes me really angry!!


Also, *whines* I need to watch SPN 3.04 now *kicks dl* ...

ETA 07-10-26 @ 10:30 am I just read about it in news:


A few weeks ago, we told you about a new tool from Snap.com that provides visual previews on external links within your journal. Based on your positive response, we've enabled these graphics for Basic and Plus users. (Don't worry: If you already disabled the graphic previews, you will not have to do so again. Also, if you don't want to see graphic previews, you can easily disable them within your journal on the Viewing Options page under "Graphic previews.")

Well thanks a lot, but I never wanted to have that Snap crap in my journal! Turning it on is so not nice!!

Info and a poll

Okay, so I've changed my layout. Again. Yeah, I know this is some odd habit of mine, but now I'm pretty pleased with it. It's lighter than the one I had before. I think I will add a background pattern and some fancy stuff, like link-decorations, but in penny numbers, I don't want to overdo it.

Here on IJ I modify my layout with a theme layer. Yay, now that I have a permanent account, I can do this. Over on LJ I only ever have had a free account. Oh dear, I actually wanted to upgrade to a paid account shortly before LJ went mad and all. Thank god I did resist!

Anyway, before I got myself my first journal ever on LJ one year and a half ago, I hadn't known one tiny bit about CSS, coding, html and the like. Then I got my account and started messing around with my layout pretty soon after that. It's just that I must have a shiny layout or else I won't feel "at home". *lol* So, I actually googled like a lunatic, went here and there, did this and that, made a whole lot of mistakes, and somehow, after some time, I got the hang of CSS, at least so much so that I won't stare like forever on a stylesheet without knowing what's it about. Go me.

Then [info]only_gremo and [info]mllesatine gave me this permanent account as a birthday present two months or so ago, (Oh dears, I can't thank you both enough for that! &hearts &hearts), wich opened a whole new world of coding to me: the theme layer. Yep. And even though you can put a CSS sequence in it; which I, as I said, am quite familiar with; there's also that other stuff I don't even know how it's called. I guess it's html coding, but I'm not sure. Anyway, my point is, I have yet to get the hang of it. It looks (and I think it certainly is) a lot more complicated than simple CSS. I hope it won't take me too long to understand.

Anyway, my current layout is also modified with that complicated coding stuff. It's mostly because I found this great LJ community called s2flexisquares where you can find codes for all sorts of things you wish to adjust, change or whatsoever.

However, I don't even know why this post got so long in the end. I just wanted to inform you about my new layout. I'm not even sure whether you guys read this in the first place... erm yeah, whatever...

I'm also entertaining the idea of posting more of these tutorials/how-to/helpful stuff guides. I really enjoy writing these and I hope they will help others in some way or another. Maybe I should make my first random poll about that?! ---Yes, I should do this...

So here it comes, my first very simple and very random poll:

Poll #394 Tutorials
Open to: All, results viewable to: All

Do you want to see more tutorials/helpful stuff/how-to guides?

View Answers

5 (100.0%)

0 (0.0%)

I don't care.
0 (0.0%)

Hah, I made the first vote! I know I know, how crappy is that, voting in my own poll. Don't judge me! It's my very first poll and I was curious. I voted for yes, because I enjoy writing these tutorials, so...

Best of LJ's V-gift messages

I just read [info]mllesatine's post about LJ and the free Pepsi v-gifts, so I went to lj_biz' user profile to take a look, and *lol* it is indeed spoiled like whoa! Unfortunately I missed out on the fun! Therefore I was just having a great time reading through all the messages sent with the v-gifts to lj_biz. Here's the best of:

You might as well take this gold star from me, because it's probably going to be the only one you're going to get. But hey, who knows, right? Anything could happen. After all, I never thought I'd see staff members disrespect their users so thoroughly.

Virtual gifts are stupid. But here, have one. Aww, the sarcasm! LOL

Wow, LJ-staff. Color me impressed by the incredibly bad timing of this. I see you have learned much in the last couple of user-revolts. If your goal is to alienate every paid user ever, keep up the good work!

Why not take a break from banninating people and chill out with a refreshing Diet Pepsi MAX? LOL! The best so far!

Why do you have only Diet Pepsi here? Is it true that you're pro anorexia?

More fun behind the cut )

*LOL* Oh man, LJ pisses its user off! Big time! Well, the more come over here to join IJ instead, we have to spread the word!

New layout

After three long days of hard work (and trust me when I say 'hard work' it really was hard work!) I'm now pretty pleased with my layout! Of course, since I'm way too much obsessed with Supernatural, I made a SPN themed one. What do you say? Do you like it? Tell me! I'm curious! and fishing for compliments

I'm so happy I found a header that features not only both Sam and Dean Winchester but also the third main character, the famous Impala! Yay! Thanks to fallen_for_lost for this awesome piece of SPN art!

It really took me awhile to find it, though. You wouldn't believe it, even though the whole internet is full of great art and pics and the like and ElJay is just one little corner where you can find a lot of pics/icons/headers, stuff like that; it's really damn difficult to search directly for something! Say a SPN header or icons, for example. So far I uploaded 84 of 300 icons and I'm still looking for "Thank-you" or "For-the-win" icons, so I went over to ElJay searching for some nice icons and I didn't find any! Can you believe it? Even with the help of ljseek I came out with nothing! Mm, that's quite annoying if you ask me!

Anyway, on to another topic!

+++ I need your help! +++

The other day I stumbled across a really hot icon of John Winchester (aka Jeffrey Dean Morgan). It was an animated one, had a dark red background, showed possessed John and said something along the lines of "Evil just got sexy". Stupid as I sometimes am I didn't save it to my folders! *stupidstupidstupidstupid* And now I really want to have it! I would really appreciate it if you could watch out for it, and if you stumble across it, please point me in the right direction! It really drives me crazy that I can't locate it on my own!

ETA 08-18-2007 @ 02:30am: I found it! LOL I've just found it! Man, I thought I saw that pretty icon a few days ago but according to my history it was yesterday! LOL See? This will happen if you spend way to many hours on-line! Anyway, here is the wonderful icon! I was looking for that:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
It was made by lidi. Also my memory seems to be pretty fuzzy! I thought the background was dark red only and let's not mention what I thought the icon said! LOL I'm getting old!

However, I'm still unsure of what to write in this journal! Should I write about the same things as I write in my ElJay? Should I also make it semi-friends-only? I don't know! But we'll see! I'll think about that for awhile. For now I'm immensely pleased I got my layout up and running!

First Post

Okay, here it is, my freshly born account at insanejournal! Whoot, whoot! I came over here from livejournal, and will use insanejournal as some kind of back up for when LJ decides to pull some shitty crap again, like yeah, the strikethrough for example or not letting me log in for hours! That's really not nice. In fact, it's freakin' annoying!

So, yeah, my layout sucks and believe me when I say there will be some major layout messing around in the next time. Oh yeah, oh yeah! This will take some time, I'm sure, but once my layout is all shiny and stylish I'll be more active around here! I have to find some new communities and some interesting friends, of course, so that I can start commenting! I'm going to hit the hay now! Good night to everyone who reads that stuff!
