Let's See Those Desktops!

@Psychospacecow: I love how you have arranged your icons so that they don't go over the picutre of Spike :D

@Lazlo: What happened to the lower right corner of that picture?

@Newt: What made you choose that particular picture as your wallpaper? Kinda interested.


Oh yes, and here's mine.[Image: Untitled_zpsf87e8184.png]

My response is probably not as interesting as you'd hoped. There's something about "creepy" that I've always been oddly fond of, and I've never known why. Not "scary." I've never had desktops or posters of things that were violent or clearly attempting to be frightening. With skulls, or blood. But images that are chilling? Something about it(And I really don't know what) makes me feel almost right at home. Hell, even my favorite kind of weather, is when it's so cloudy and rainy outside, you can't see the sun. I love waking up and having it be incredibly gloomy outside. All I can hear is the rain. And then I just sit in my room and read. I usually just play video games, but that soothing sound, with the gloomy weather, makes me want to read a book in bed.

Love it.

Anyways, all of my desktop images have always been some form of photography, usually black and white, of places that appear abandoned, or maybe a forest. If I knew how to do photography and photo edit, I'd love to take some myself. There's an abandoned hotel in my town people have always called "haunted." and I'd love to take some pictures of the outside and inside, and then edit them to be black and white, etc. But I never get the shading right.

As an aside, I've never been inside the hotel, but I've always wanted to. It being "haunted", to me, just means, "empty." When human life hasn't touched something in a very long time, it gets a sort of feel for it. Like it's meant to stay that way. And even though I'm breaking that bond with nature, by entering it. It makes me feel like. Really excited.

As an aside to my aside, I've always wanted to explore Chernobyl. As in the parts that we haven't explored since the whole disaster. The emptiness of the city intrigues the shit out of me.

Is what I'm saying making sense? Or do I just sound really weird?


Edit: If you were curious, this is an article of the haunted hotel.

Yes, I live in Byron, Ca. Feel free to stalk me, I suppose. The photography I'd like to do would look MUCH better if it wasn't for all the fucking graffiti. It ruins it. It's like defiling nature, you know? The hotel looks SOOO cool to me. Augh. I wish you guys could understand how I feel about this. Haha.

I actually wasn't aware that picture would be all that apparent :D But yes, that is correct, I guess, for I like the show.

You were wrong, I actually found it more interesting than expected. I too like all kinds of abandoned places, they intrigue me in some strange way, so I understand your thinking. There are a couple of abandoned buildings with strange stories attached to them around here and I'd totally love to go snooping around there.

I guess you might find this blog interesting: http://fuckyeahghosttowns.tumblr.com/

I find it very interesting, as a matter of fact. I wish I knew how Tumblr worked so I could try telling this guy about the Byron Hot Springs.

I have two monitors, and the right one is smaller than the left one, so there's nothing to display there. Since there's no information, I thought it might be appropriate to put the standard "transparent" pattern there.

Eh, I've been on Deviant Art and meme sites long enough to recognize some of them.

I used to have a blog on tumblr ages ago and I never figured out how commenting actually worked there :D I should get back into that shizz though.

There is no commenting on Tumblr. That's the main drawback of it--at least if you ask me--is that it sort of actively tries to prevent conversation and promotes that me-centric Web 2.0 millennial generation hipster thing that everybody seems to hate.

To be fair, I appreciate it much more than the crap Google does with YouTube. At least Tumblr isn't trying to be the new Facebook or some shit like that.
