Arashi - We make storm


Despite the lack of updates, I won't post any new icon today ^^'' I'm just posting a quick notice...

Tomorrow the domain will expire, and me and very86 have decided not to renew it, because we have another domain and we're not updating the qaf site since 2 years anyway. The problem is, half of my old icons and graphics are hosted on that domain so starting tomorrow they will disappear :( I'm sorry for the inconveniece, but I am currently in Japan and I won't be back until october 1st, so I won't be able to fix the problem before that date ^^'
All of the graphics have been saved bu the way and nothing will be lost, so when I will be back home I will do my best to fix all of the broken links! :D

Arashi -  5x10

New icons ^^

I'm soooo lazy ._.
I wanted to update months ago but kept procastinating xD I finally finished my exams and now I 'm "writing my final essay"... but I basically spend my days doing nothing xD
I finally got a paid account! *_* I partecipated to the layout contest at a_ra_shi and got first place for profile code, and since prize was a lovely $25 gift coupon I finally upgrated my account! SO MANY USERPICS *_* And I love the fact that I can now edit my comments!

This is totally random but... I CAN'T BELIEVE SHUKUDAI-KUN IS GOING TO BE CANCELLED! ;___; It was the first arashi show I got addicted to, and that actually made me discover arashi as a group... WHAT AM I GOING TO DO NOW ON MONDAYS?? ;_;
I really hope the new show will be funny as AnS, but I don't think it will be same for me :(
Btw, speaking of Arashi, I have an extra brand new sealed copy of One RE that I don't need so if someone wants to buy it please PM me! :D

Moving on, ICONS! Half of them are "new" arashi icons (very VERY Jun-biased ._.), and the other half really really old icons I made for various contests last year :)

1 - 54: Arashi
55 - 77: Disney
78 - 83: Sailor Moon
84 - 87: Stock
88 - 98: Harry Potter

I also have some gifs and wallpapers to post, I promise I will try to post them within the end of the week xD
Arashi - We make storm

New layout (and obsession) & icons!

So..umh... it's been a while since my last update xDD I kept thinking "I'll update my LJ" tomorrow and it's been... 6 months? Probably more ._.
The problem in being so lazy is that now I have TONS of icons, walls and other stuff to post. And I need to find some will to do it ._.

1. New layout! I was bored with the last one, so I decided to change it. This time, it features my new obsession: Arashi, a japanese boyband full of awesome, gay, rainbows, and sparkles <3 They have been around for 10 years but I just discovered them last april and spent the last 6 months catching up with their music, concerts and tv shows *_* Altough I've been liking japanese culture and language for the last 6 years I never really cared about its entertainment world... I liked some jpop, but mostly from anime and some movies. Now I spend all of half of my time watching dramas, movies and tv shows and fangirling over arashi... and I like to think that I'm not totally wasting my time, and I'm actually doing some listening excercise to improve my japanese lol. AND IT WORKS BTW!! xDD Oh and I wasn't SO obsessed like 2 months ago... IT'S ALL JAPAN'S FAULT T_T I've been there again this summer doing an homestay for 5 weeks and I came back as a total fangirl ._. I've probably spent more for CDs, DVDs, magazines and pictures than for my airplane ticket xD Now, my room looks like the room of a 13 years old fangirl xD I need help ._.

2. Icons! I have some really old icons to post (old contest entries I made in may) AND some fresh arashi icons ^^ They are a lot, and I'm too lazy to do a huge icon post... so I'll post only the arashi ones, becase I'm not obsessed at all ^_^v  The old ones will come, eventually xDD

3. I might be probably using this LJ for personal-ish entries ( read: fangirling) from now on , so be prepared xD I might switch to semi-friends only, I still don't know -- icons and graphics will remain public though ^.^

4. Next update will feature some wallpapers, some new-and-old icons and texture set I've made from some fireworks pictures I took in Japan! ^_^


Huge icon post O_O

Well, I'm not dead xD

In the last months I was kind of blocked, and only made few icons for icontest... I was always thinking "I need to update my lj" but I was too lazy and procrastinated untill now xD So, now I find myself with 150 new icons from the last 4 months ^_^
A couple of days ago I also tried to buy a paid account. I have wanted it for months and finally decided to buy it, but after I filled the form woth my name, credit card and all I got an error and I have no idea of what that means :(
"Permesso negato: The security information from your card does not match the information you entered. Please go back and try again. Please note that a $1.00 charge may appear on your statement temporarily from the authorization attempt."
I used a debit card and all the informations entered were right! Anyone know the reason of the error? :(

Moving on to the icons now... as I said, 99% of them was made for icontests and the remaining 1% are requests for some friends!

1 - 33: Gossip Girl
34 - 50: Harry Potter (movies and actors)
51 - 96: Stock
97 - 141: Disney various
141 - 153: Random (Queer as folk, Moulin rouge, Mamma mia, Big love, Twilight)

Japan I'm coooming!! *_*

I'm leaving for Japan in a couple of hours and I really can't wait to be on that plane *__* I will stay two days in Tokyo, then I will go to Kamakura where I'll work in a orphanage for 10 days :) Then, I'll go to Tokyo again xD
I wanted to post some icons too, but Photoshop hates me and I hate him and I couldn't make a decent icon in the last two weeks :( I hope things will be better when I will return xD
