I've been fiddling around with my graphics tablet and my scanner - both are awesome - but I can't post to LJ without a huge loss in quality.
.png gives the best results (.jpeg looks awful, .psd files are too large) but even .png looks grainy compared to the original.

How do you guys do it? I upload to Photobucket. Does that have anything to do with it?

ETA: oh wow. On my office computer they look even worse. Hellup.

I finally did it. I bought a printer/scanner and a graphics tablet today.  For my handmeme. O.o

And here are some (wedding) pics from my trip to Maui last month.

I also bought this on Maui. Way too expensive, but it's going to look gorgeous in my living room. After I remodel! :D

My handmeme arrived today! [ profile] astridv , I love it!! I absolutely love it to bits! Yes, yes, go ahead and post the scans - this is too adorable to keep to myself.

Look at the little puddle jumper with itty bitty John Sheppard!

Thanks so much! :D:D:D:D

trystings: (Mitchell Being Human)

I'm leaving on a four week trip this evening -  so naturally I spent the afternoon watching three episodes of Being Human and reading de-aged Sheppard fic. I have two hours to pack my suitcase and clean my house. Hahahahaha. Help.

Anyway. First two weeks very limited access to internet (or none at all) and after that, maybe a bit more often if I can find an internet cafe. This vacation is going to seriously interfere with my LJ habit.

Why didn't I get a laptop. Why??

ETA: my dad dropped by to bring me dinner. Awww.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something.
- I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well.

Now, since most of my tiny flist has already signed up elsewhere, I - ever the realist - do not expect a lot of response to this post. So here's my special offer: even if you've already signed up somewhere else, feel free to comment here as well - your chance to get two pieces of handmade strangeness for the price of one meme.  :D

The poker scene in Vegas.

I've watched that scene twelve times and I can't figure it out. Something happens at the end. Sheppard folds, and the Wraith starts raking in the chips, but something makes him suddenly look up and throw a sharp glance at Sheppard and Sheppard gives him this look back and the Wraith gets up to leave, like he knows his game is up.

Dealer deals. We don't see the Wraith's hand.
Sheppard has two sixes.

Dealer turns 6 7 7.

Sheppard now has a full house. A great hand.
The Wraith at the most has a double pair (or four of a kind, but we see in the next turn that he doesn't).

Dealer turns a 7

Sheppard now has a higher full house, but a worse hand, because:
- if the Wraith started out with a pair, he now has a full house and probably one that's higher than Sheppard's.
- if the Wraith had a single 7 in his hand, he now has four of kind. It would have meant a lousy hand to start with, and the Wraith raised, so probably not.

The thing is: The Wraith is reading the minds of everybody at that table, he *knows* Sheppard's hand. Even with a double pair, he knew that he couldn't win against Sheppard's full house, and yet he doesn't fold. Okay, he's a gambling man, but the ONLY card with which he can outbluf Sheppard is with another 7, and he had no way of knowing that the dealer would deal that one card.

So what happenend??

Did Sheppard lose on purpose? Did he fold with a winning hand and forfeit 20,000 dollar to draw out the Wraith - to see what his response would be?
Or was he genuinely outbluffed by the Wraith and gave up?

Joe M's blog: Ships and What Ifs.


Insightful, attentive, giving us fans an explanation without getting all sarcastic. Sure makes a nice change from that godawful Q&A with Gero the other day. *is impressed*

It doesn't change the fact that I still don't like the McKeller pairing, I still wish the writers had gone for Ronon/Keller, I still much rather see Sheppard and McKay's friendship explored than Rodney and Keller having lunch and I still resent the fact that after five years of team adventures, we get an unpopular canon ship pasted to the end of the show. But whining about it isn't going to help and I'll shut up now.

Recurring gay character... Probably Lorne, which makes Lorne/Parrish CANON. Haha.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [ profile] greyias! Have a great day!

ETA belated birthday present. :D )

This is Bart. Bart is a fellow student, not a model. We put him in the chair when our model for the evening was taken to the hospital after she fell from the steps at the train station. Bart couldn't sit still for more than three seconds, so I had to do this real quick.

It's 5.00 AM and a few moments ago CNN declared Barack Obama the 44th President of the United States.

Be a great President and make us proud.

trystings: (No Words)
I don't have much to add to all the wonderful, inspiring, electrifying posts that I've read over the last couple of weeks.  I am just eternally grateful that I got to vote in this election and I hope Obama wins.

C'mon flist, where are the posts? it wasn't that bad. Quite enjoyable actually.

Some squee, some whining and screencaps )

I swear I did not skip the parts where he's animated and expressive. There aren't any.

Fic rec! The view from the other side by [ profile] rhymer23. The events of The Lost Tribe have reopened some wounds that Sheppard thought healed.

[ profile] with_apostrophe John Sheppard (yesss!) sent me a postcard from Scotland.

I bet Rodney helped him pick it out. It's a postcard of the Tardis, cleverly disguised as a telephone booth in the middle of a herd of Highland cows. :)

The mud covered team waves hi. *waves back*

[ profile] with_apostrophe, I love it! Thank you!

When you see this, post a quote from Stargate: Atlantis in your journal.

SHEPPARD: Look, what you people do with your C4 is none of our business. We just need food. And as far as your little secret down here goes ... well err ... *looks at McKay*

MCKAY: We say ... "What giant underground bunker?".

trystings: (Teyla)

I liked this episode. I really enjoyed it. Teyla as a tiny fierce Wraith Queen was great and her worried team was adorkable. So here my very, very late commentary:



And a gazillion screen caps in high resolution no less. )

Good episode. Listed #4 on my list.
