Here's mine:

I keep coming back to that HL2 wallpaper for some reason - it's basically the best one I've ever had, I think.

what do yours look like?

As everyone has probably seen:



The bad girls of Gotham. That sounds like some sort of dodgy porn. I change iit about now and then but I always revert back to this. I think I like the red. And magic lack of icons which freaks people out when they try and use it.

Drawin' stuff by Doug TenNapel for the second volume of Flight.

Though just looking at some of the other desktops has me thinking of switching.  Yeah, I like the big blue monster in this one.

Heres my Powerbook's desktop when the monitor is hooked up:


Without the monitor, it swiches to a Legend of Zelda - Minish Cap background.

My PC desktop is less interesting.

Here's mine

I used to just have a smaller pic in the middle with black everywhere else, but switched to this wide one because my new monitor has a wonky pixel which shows up on black, just to the left of centre.

That's me on the wall @ right. My climbing mate took this, testing out the 'stitching' capabilities of his new camera, but got it kind of blurry. I still like it because it shows a good cross-section of "life in the bouldering-cave."

My laptop's screen is 1280x800 widescreen (kinda wish it was higher, but it works.) The Start menu/bar thingy is actually auto-hide, so the desktop is just those three icons.

The background changes about once a week. About half the time it's a minimalistic desktop like this, a quarter of the time it's something I've photoshopped, and a quarter of the time it's some random painting.

Thank you!

That new Beck album is fucking gold!  Picked it up on a whim, and I'm so glad I did.

I should've taken a screenshot with Itunes fully open, to give you guys a sample of my bizarre library.

Here's a short list;

Beck
Cake
Radiohead
Roy Orbison
Rage (German Heavy Metal)
Enya
E.L.O.
Dire Straits
Beatles
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Sting
Modest Mouse
Autechre
Sigur Ros

It's the OpusOS (deep compact) theme for Windows, assuming that you have a 'fixed' uxtheme.dll.

I think it looks good but I can relate to the fact that it wasn't what you're looking for.

but a question, why does she always look like a heroin addict, and not just in that movie either, but always?  I think its the eyes, or the makeup, i dunno, maybe I just typecasted her in my mind.

Umm, Shannyn Sossamon is NOT the actress in Fight Club, that's Helena Bonham Carter. Off the top of my head, Shannyn Sossamon appears in 40 Days & 40 Nights, and A Knight's Tale...

Kirby?  I was unaware.  What Kirby?  Not Jack Kirby?  And Kidby?

Thanks.  I've just recently got into the series.  All I have is the first, third and fourth books relased.  I stumbled across a sort of recomended guide as to what order to read them in when I found that.

Oh, and Discworld rocks. I definitely prefer the covers and art by Paul Kidby to the ones by Josh Kirby, though. They just hit the feel and image of the characters and setting so much more accurately, I think.

Oh, and I desperately want THIS for a desktop.

Or maybe THIS...
