Happy Birthday tvreflection! 
2nd-Apr-2009 08:53 pm
Happy birthday, you wonderful awesome you! I hope you had a superb day filled with happiness and joy, and that the coming year will bring you more of the same stuff! *gives you a big-ass birthday hug*

I'm so glad that we've met. You're simply one of the awesomest, wittiest, kindest, coolest, funniest, liveliest people I've ever had the pleasure and honor of knowing. I love your sense of humor, and I love our conversations. They're always so much fun, and it's just wonderful to be able to share thoughts with a like-minded person. Although, now thinking about it, my mind is kinda seriously warped, and so claiming that our minds were even remotely alike could actually be rather insulting towards you. Damn. Hmm. Ok, a second try: It's so very delightful to be able to have conversations with someone who doesn't react as if I'd suddenly grown three heads every time I open my mouth. Except that I don't really open my mouth since we're having our conversations in written form, so... *trails off* Ugh, this is hopeless! I'm hopeless! Just ignore me and my weird ramblings - that's what I do most of the time! *goes away and hides*

*comes back bearing prezzies*

This is going to look SO lame after the absolutely amazing Nathan artwork you made me for my birthday. I truly wish I could do more than abuse already existing pics with my graphics programs, but I can't and so graphics will have to do. I know these are not much, but at least it's Caleb there. Looking gorgeous. Twice. Hope you like them! :)

Woohoo! Yayness! I'm so glad you like them! :D *does the dance of utter happiness*

And it's so nice to hear that you feel the same way about like-mindedness. I was half-joking about it being an insult, but I sometimes get a bit paranoid about making assumptions. I mean, I go around being...me and writing these...well, the kind of comments that I do...and then I go calling someone like-minded and it's like "Do you really think anyone wants to be called a like-minded person by you?". Lol. I've got issues. As if you hadn't noticed before. xD

I hope it's alright that I put your real name on the icon instead of your user name. I was having trouble deciding which would be the right way go about it, but then I noticed that you have your name on the sidebar of your journal anyway, and so I figured it should be ok to put it in your icon as well. I can change it, though, if you preferred one that says tvreflection on it. Or if you'd like to have both kinds of icons. Just let me know and I'll make it happen. ;)

It's so weird, making animated gifs. At least for me it is. Like, with this one I didn't have a concept or direction or anything at first. I just knew that A. It needed to have Caleb in it, and B. I wanted it to show that it was made specially for you. And with that, I just went to my KoL video folder and started skimming through the interviews. Dozens of interviews. Which obviously wasn't all that unpleasant given the gorgeousness of the interviewees and all that, but it did get a bit frustrating at one point. First of all, I was shocked by the quality (and I mean the lack of it) of the most of the vids. I've been watching such beautiful, clear non-KoL related stuff lately that all those smudgy YouTube pixel-fests were almost painful to watch. Plus it's really hard to make icons out of crappy vids. Or at least I find it really hard. Secondly, there was the microphone problem. Like, it's so annoying when somebody says something iconing worthy and/or has a superb facial expression, and then there's a microphone in the way. It doesn't matter so much when you're watching the videos in their original sizes, but in an icon you just see a big black dot covering someones face, which just doesn't work. And thirdly, it's kinda boring to watch any kinds of vids on the mute mode. Why would you do that, might a sane person ask, and my answer would be: "Because that's the only way I can concentrate purely on what they are doing (instead of what they are saying while doing it.)". My mind is kinda one tracked that way. *is odd and knows it*

Anyway, after a longish search I came upon a decent quality clip of Caleb and Matthew talking to the Canadian MTV. And the second I saw Caleb giving this appreciative look to the side and then saying "Wow!" I knew I'd found what I'd been looking for. And thanks to the muted sound, I had no idea what they were talking about, and so I had to come up with my own explanation to his reaction. And it was pretty damn obvious to me that on that very moment he saw you entering the room. *grins*

Oops, my verbal/literal diarrhea it just keeps on getting worse. That must be one of the longest making-of ramblings I've ever written, which it quite an achievement especially given that I tend to ramble more often than not. Sheesh, I don't know what's wrong with me these days... *rolls eyes*

i know exactly what you mean! hahah, see? :)

it's more than alright! it's perfect <3 i mean, like, if he and i were, uh, making love or something like that, i'd want him to use my real name ;D i don't mind the internet knowing my first name, so it's all good :) but maybe for the sake of livejournal, one with my username would be best; that way he is specifically noticing me, and not any other cynthia on livejournal ;D ;D ;D oh, my goodness, i know. i've been trying to get some of the home movies onto my ipod (with no luck yet -- i recently had to wipe my computer and haven't gotten around to installing itunes, plus, i haven't had much play-by-myslef time lately anyway) and i've been hoping that the quality will look better on a smaller screen, since watching itunes videos, for example, are quite grainy full-screen on the computer, but picture-perfect on the ipod itself :)

LOL, literal diarrhea XD i like you, kid. thank you again!
and the rambling is something i do, too -- but when it comes to yours, it's nice to have something to read when i login here :D

LOL, yeah, I reckon it could be a tad weird if he called you tvreflection on such an intimate moment. I mean, if someone was to, say, come screaming my name I sure would like the said name to be Anni and not framedinlove. I'm all for kinks and stuff, but I'm also quite certain that being called by my LJ username during sex would be just creepy - and not in a good way. xD

Good point! I originally put your real name on the icon because I thought it would make it more personal, but since it's indeed very likely that there are other Cynthias around here at LJ as well, it would make a whole bunch of sense to have, like, your own private Cynthia icon as well as an LJ compatible one. And speaking of which, here's a candidate for the latter post:

*hearts you* :)
