Animated icons may be even more fun to make than normal 'still' icons. :D



More Here. :) )

Also, if you'd like any variations on these let me know and I can personalise them for you. I'm also happy to take any requests for these or any other fandoms, provided I have (or can find) video footage of the moment you'd like animated. :D

What is the soundtrack to your fandom? And why?

While I'm not the most musically inclined person around there are still certain songs that remind me/make me think of certain fandoms or the ships within them.

The Avengers
Because I'm Awesome - The Dollyrots -  I love this song for Mrs. Peel. All the lyrics just fit her perfectly. There's no-one more awesome than Mrs. Peel. :)
My Life Would Suck Without You - Kelly Clarkson (Glee Cast Version) - This is my favourite song for Steed/Peel - both awesome on their own but together they're so much more. It's my greatest fandom wish to one day see a Steed/Peel fanvid made to this song.

The Tracks Of My Tears - Smokey Robinson and The Miracles - This is very much David's theme. Head over heels for Maddie since the first time he met her all he wants is a little reciprocity. Always the joker on the outside when in reality he's broken inside.

Don't Fear The Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult - Dean's favourite Mullet-Rock. The whole spirit of the show can be found in this song.

Love Me Dead - Ludo - Thanks to this trailer for the show House always makes me think of this song. It really does fit the character
Teadrop - Massive Attack - The song used for the original theme tune. I love this one for the show a lot more than the replacement score the Australian version of the series has. The whole heartbeat-beat medical angle of the clip fits so much better too.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

The Album - Sometimes a show does it best themselves. This is without a doubt my favourite CD soundtrack of all time. Listening to this one always takes me back to those highschool days of watching Buffy during its initial run and excitedly discussing it the next day with friends. Love it! :D

Life On Mars
The Album - Another official soundtrack done well. I love so many songs on this one - especially those that relate to Sam and his journey trapped in the past. A good driving album which also suits the show really well. :)

Defying Gravity - Despite belonging to a completely different fandom Firefly is the one that first comes to mind whenever I hear this song because of this truly brilliant fanvid by [livejournal.com profile] y_fish.

Star Trek XI
Circus - though I never would have thought of it myself a little Britney Spears is just perfect for Captain Kirk. This fanvid by [livejournal.com profile] butterfly  shows exactly what made the latest Star Trek movie so very awesome. And anything that can make you actually enjoy Britney Spears is worth a look. :P

DAY 15: Favorite female character

Mrs. Emma Peel from The Avengers. A recent find of mine but Mrs. Peel is easily my favourite female character of all time. It's going to take something very special to knock her off the top of my list. Mrs. Peel is a strong, smart and independent woman who is all class and can be fantastically cheeky when the mood strikes her. She lives in a stylish apartment, drives a convertible and owns a wardrobe to die for. Recruited by special agent John Steed to help him solve mysterious murders and protect their beloved England. Proficient in all manner of firearms and a skilled fencer, Mrs. Peel knows how to handle herself in a fight having had training in both Karate and Kung Fu. Before meeting Steed Mrs. Peel proved she was more than a pretty face by becoming the Chairman of her father's corporation, and successfully running it, at the tender age of 21. She's often able to use her intelligence to solve the cases and to outwit and outfox the diabolical mastermind of the moment. Nothing ever fazes her and she never shows any fear to the enemy - even when constrained and seconds from death. Mr. Peel also knows how to have fun. She loves chocolates, champagne and is always up for a party. If ever there was a more perfect role model for women everywhere (and every time) I've yet to find it. :)

DAY 08: A show everyone should watch

The Avengers is one of the greatest older shows that you've probably never seen. Part James Bond, part Doctor Who this show is still huge amounts of fun despite the fact that it's over 40 years old. I can only really speak for the colour series of 1967, where the main character secret agent (and perfect English gentleman) John Steed teams up with the young and brilliant Mrs. Emma Peel, but those 25 episodes alone are enough to have me highly recommend this show to anyone and everyone. Sure some of the storylines are a bit aged and the special effects and 'advanced technology' are hilariously bad by today's standards, but that all really just ads to the old-school charm of the show. Both Steed and Mrs. Peel are good, strong characters acted to perfection by the actors and the relationship shared between these two characters alone makes the show worth watching. With superbly written dialogue, no swearing, no blood (there's plenty of violence), plenty of champagne and villians who try to conquer the world - or at least the UK - by using shrinking machines, invisible men, robot soldiers, hallucinogenic drugs and bodyswap machines this show is an absolute delight from beginning to end. :)

There are a few episodes avaliable on YouTube but the selection is pretty random. This is one of my favourites that has been uploaded. Go watch it now! :D

ozfroggirl: (dexaddiction)

[info]toestastegood is hosting a fun, multi-fandom fic party at her journal! It's called Five Acts, and this is what you do to participate:

1. On your journal, post a list of your five favorite kinks/acts to read about. (Check out this list if you're stuck on inspiration.) Also list the fandoms and pairings you'd like to read about.
2. Go HERE and post a link to your list so other writers can find it.
3. Read other people's lists.
4. Write comment-fic (or longer pieces) based on other people's preferences. Post either the whole fic or a link to it on the person's post.

My Five Themes/Kinks )

ozfroggirl: (avengers title)
This one took much longer than it should have (our computer basically having a stroke a few weeks back didn't help) though was still mega amounts of fun to make. :)

Finally, here for your enjoyment a The Avengers Mood Theme.
Centered on Steed and Mrs Peel - the colour episodes only - it will work for all accounts.

You can preview the whole theme here.

Download this zipped file if you'd like to use it. Credit on your userinfo page is a must - just because these things take a huge amount of time and effort to put together. Other than that, I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. :)

Also [livejournal.com profile] lidi has posted a great walkthrough on how to set up a custom moodtheme here which I'm sure she wouldn't mind me linking to.

EDIT: If you're having trouble getting this moodtheme to work it must be noted that all the picture files in that zip are .png and not .jpg
You will have to change that as well if you're using the moodtheme instructions linked above. Took me far too long to work out that was why my attempts weren't working. *headdesk*

ozfroggirl: (avengers animated)
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] speccygeekgrrl and a little holiday discount coupon I'm now a very happy paid account holder. Now to explore all the shiny new things I can do, and fill up those extra icon spaces. :)

In celebration I made my first ever animated icon - so loving The Avengers hardcore right now. (A set of icons and possibly a mood theme could appear sometime in the future) :D
ozfroggirl: (christmas)
Got my first Christmas card today care of [livejournal.com profile] speccygeekgrrl

Feeling the Christmas spirit again. Shopping tomorrow. Will see if I can find some nice cards. If you'd like one comment here with your address and I'll send them out as soon as I can. All comments are screened. :D

Two things at the top of my Christmas wishlist this year.

The Avengers - 1967 Collection
All the colour episodes with Mrs Peel. So much love for this season of the show. ♥ At less than 80c an episode this is an absolute bargin.

Supernatural Season 4 With Replica Impala
Season 4 is brilliant enough as it is, but the chance to own my own little Impala might just make the highish price of this one worth it. :P
