I'm a huge fan of personalization, music, and my iPhone. So naturally, what's cooler than custom ringtones? Stargate custom ringtones! Back in November, I created ten ringtones compatible with the iPhone. I've since edited ten more, mostly from the Ark of Truth, Continuum and original movie soundtrack.

Disclaimers: The works are still copyrighted to the respective creators, David Arnold and Joel Goldsmith, as well as the owners of the Stargate Franchises. These ringtones are created using DMC free music (therefore not violating copyright laws reposting them) and created by me using GarageBand. These are not for sale, therefore I am not making any profit off of these. These are for personal enjoyment only. They are designed for the iPhone, however I do not know if they are usable by other phones. If anyone wants to try it and get back to me, I would greatly appreciate it. As of this time (May 2009) they are not usable on the iPod Touch, but that may be a feature in the near future.

Downloading instructions: Right click to save the linked zip files. Open the zipped file and move the ringtone right into iTunes by either dragging it or add it to your collection as you normally do with electronic files. Both Windows and Macs do have a drag-ability function, so saving to a desktop and moving right into the program should work. The files will automatically move into the Ringtones category in iTunes at the very top under "Library". From there, once you connect your iPhone to iTunes, simply drag the ringtone into your phone, reset your phone settings for the new ringtone, and you are on your way.

icon dump

So, I try to mentally keep a list of scenes with great icon potential in my head... unfortunately, I am blonde. So then I go in search of said scene, and find others instead (in episodes I knew it wouldn't be in, but I got distracted... again, being a blonde that happens a lot). This time I was a wee bit successful. I was trying to find a couple good scenes from season 5 (though most ended up being from season 6) and came up with these:

for [ profile] sg_betty I changed the last two into her particular color scheme:

So, following discussions on the previous posts, [ profile] sg_fignewton made a request for another icon, so I finally found some time to get to it. I'm also posting the rest of the first set I made when I did Janet Alphabet Soup icons.

The last three are because there are generally two three ways of spelling her name, and I didn't want to just pick one. Thanks Cleo for the update!

For all you fabulous Stargaters out there reading this blog, here is my weekly update from my "All Stargate All the Time" blog, Samantha's Diversions at Dreamwidth.

I've been quite busy starting to flush out and add in previous Stargate Fandom posts, so for the next few weeks I anticipate a bunch of posts-for you Dreamwidth people out there, I'm spammin your reading list with loads and loads of Stargate goodness! (lucky you!)

New Posts:

Fic Request Meme! - Open request for ficlets!

"Gamekeeper" Thoughts - Gamekeeper vs. Matrix quick commentary, random thought.

Mad Fun with Yahoo Messenger - the Doodle IMvironment leads to new ways of unleashing my stargate glee! New category added: yahoo!artwork.

Stargate SG-1 Virtual Season 11: Stargate Odyssey - A new massive ficathon just launched earlier this month!


Fic: Sacrifices - The first story fully moved over to Dreamwidth (and one of my personal favorites).

LJ News:

I've gone ahead and created a syndicated feed from my Dreamwidth here on LJ: [ profile] samantillesdw for those of you who do not regularly read your reading list @ DW, do not have an account, or want to keep all your fandom on one site.
samantilles_at_lj: (SGA-Daniel Finally arrives to Atlantis)

While the transition of many of you on my friends list to Dreamwidth is underway, I figured this might be a good time to start a new habit: recapping my Stargate fandom updates here. I'm not interested in cross posting and I want to keep this journal as it has always been (which is a custom blend of everything, not just fandom) but more and more people I friend here are stargaters, and I eat to share my glee with ya'alls too. I haven't decided yet, but I may choose to also make an RSS feed also for lj.

My next post will be the first of many (hopefully!) Stargate update friday!

I noticed for the first time a small sapling tree my neighbor planted a few years ago has finally started blooming flowers. So, having had my camera on me, I snapped a couple. I love Dogwoods. Personally I prefer white dogwoods, but I think in general the pictures came out well for an impromptu photo session.

The images are large enough to make into PC and Mac desktop backgrounds if anyone is interested.

The latest of the Harry Potter Trailers are here! The crazy part is, I swear I don't remember half of what is going on in the trailer, which means I desperately need to re-read the series before this comes out in the summer.
perty perty effects!! )
samantilles_at_lj: (SG Fandom-Janet Alphabet Soup)
In celebration of the upcoming Janet Alphabet Soup hosted by [ profile] sg_fignewton, I couldn't help but get cozy with me photoshop and do some icon-makin'! Alphabet Soup contributors: feel free to snerk and use to your pleasure! I hope you enjoy!

for an authentic alphabet soup rendition!
samantilles_at_lj: (Default)
So, after careful consideration, I've decided a few things:

1.) LJ is still my main journal (I <3 my permanent account and that I've been here six years already) and I don't want to import it to Dreamwidth. Any imports I do with this LJ is for backup purposes only, not to move servers. My posting here (my topics, frequency, etc) shouldn't change (well, hopefully frequency will be a bit more, but other than that...)

2.) Dreamwidth is now "All Stargate, All the Time" and my primary posting point for all things Stargate. Some will continue to be cross posted here and to my writing journal, as they always have been. I look forward to having a totally fannish journal!! (some may notice that my main journal has a bit of Stargate, but not nearly as much as I might find a reason to post about, as I do have some non-stargate readers on my flist and those who visit the site but are not members. This corrects that!)

3.) I also started up [ profile] samsnewhome and I plan to start blogging this weekend with some backup pictures I have from before. I'm actually quite excited about that!

I'm totally in the mood to do nothing but update everything this weekend, but goodness knows I've still got tons of Laundry to do and other setbacks to 24hour blogging. *sigh*

Idol pleas

Apr. 15th, 2009 01:43 am
samantilles_at_lj: (AI-Simon Cowell blissful)
A few things:

First off, to the Producers of American Idol:

What you did tonight was one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. Sacrificing the judges comments on the performance for arguably more commercial time is the most annoying when a judge is cut off after a single sentence so we can go to SEVEN minutes of commercials. I'd argue that since you decide to destroy your own show for the sake of commercial dollars, I would on principal not purchase from anyone who advertised during that time. However, it is impractical to actually implement a threat, but I refuse to watch them. I now deliberately watch the show on DVR and fast forward through the commercials. Second point: running over isn't cool. I didn't see Adam's performance last week, and I wish I had. Next time cut out that damned Ford Commercial that played six times in the previous intermissions before cutting off judges next time.


I know that Adam is an amazing artist, but Simon was right on the money tonight when he said that there would be a part of the audience that would not like his interpretation of "Born to be Wild." I'm not a fan of Adam's style, and to be brutally honest most of the time his performances make my ears hurt from the high pitches and the semi-screams into the mic. Its not my type of music, though I can appreciate he does have quite a talent.


Allison, Anoop, and Danny--they rocked my socks off!! I love "Don't Want to Miss A Thing" and "Everything I do, I Do it for You" and Allison and Anoop did amazing renditions of them. Steven Tyler and Bryan Adams would be, I think, impressed with their interpretations. I just <3 Danny's voice and soul that goes into his songs. Again, Simon was right--Dump the Harp-- but the vocals gave me warm fuzzies.

So, I soo wasted loads of time today I should have been working on my volunteer work updating my samantilles@DW layout in Stargate goodness. But I think it looks not too shabby (though some tweaking will be necessary shortly!)

*happeh/satisfied sigh*
samantilles_at_lj: (Default)
Howdy peoples! So, i've been noticing that about 90% of my flist (coincidentally 90% of my flist are Stargaters, or is it really coincidence?) have been branching out to Dreamwidth and so with crazy curiosity, I'm now also samantilles there as well.

Now, I've always had multiple blogs and usually they have different purposes, but I have no idea what I want to do with my new shiny DW account. So maybe ya'lls help me out a bit!

[Poll #1383439]
samantilles_at_lj: (gummy sam animated)
[ profile] holdouttrout pointed to this performance by a Ms. Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent 2009 show this past week, and let me just tell you how much glee there is to be had by all. I've watched this now maybe five or six times, and I am just blown away by it all, by the expectation of what I should have heard from her, what she actually sings, the personality, the response by Simon Cowell (of American Idol Fame--and yes, I'm an Idol fan. Simon and Randy are my favorite judges, and they are usually right during performances.)

The video (watch first as it better sets you up for what you're about to see): Here

*snerked from [ profile] aurora_novarum because icon glee is love.

1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

I was walking around the Atlanta Underground with a friend I met through a Lord of the Rings community when we walked into a candy store and saw the gummy letters. Immediately I thought of ways of using them, so I bought enough to spell my name and handle (so double Ls, triple As, and double Ss). I came back to the place I was staying at (with a friend from college) and we had an impromptu photo session, using her platewear and my gummy letters. Fun was had by all, except her cats, who were unhappy not to have gummy goodness.

Who doesn't enjoy Daniel clad only in an SGC flag?? Wonderfully made by [ profile] cleothemuse, I can't help but think that the question WWJD? would actually have been asked by one or more leaders in the SGC as Daniel (Daniel Jackson for those of you not of the Stargate fandom) was the conscience of the SGC.

This was the first really good picture I took, one I enlarged and framed as a piece of artwork. The flower itself was part of a mother's day bouquet and taken out in our front lawn. When I move into my new house, the framed picture will be hanged in my new dining room with two other really nice flower pictures I took after this one.

The original icon was by [ profile] hsapiens as part of her absolutely amazing collection. The image of Daniel with the headache just exuded "this is all Jack's fault" so I just plopped in the words. I use this frequently, as many things are easily Jack's fault in the gate'verse.

Dragon Army was Ender's army in "Ender's Game" and "Ender's Shadow" for those of you not familiar with the works of Orson Scott Card. Ender, the boy strategical genius who leads his Jeesh through the final battles of the Third Invasion against the Formics, begins his military career at Battle School, geared to train children ages 5 through 14 in the basics of combat through the frequent battling of rival armies in "the game". Dragon Army went undefeated under Ender after years of bad luck and was disbanded after Ender left for Command School. Much like I wear a wonderful garnet and gold scarf for Gryffindor (Harry Potter) this icon is my Ender Saga equivalent. Made by [ profile] one_third

You know, it seems that I start a lot of posts and somehow never finish them to get up here... anyways, all you stargaters on my flist, make sure you check out [ profile] jacksamfriends for the new Jack & Sam Friendathon going on right now! Fics went live yesterday and the authors will be announced next week, so we have six more days of reading and wondering who the heck wrote these! Fun times for all!

Never have been. But beyond that, I still came up with a cheesy (so cheesy the gooeyness oozes from the bread) poem about how I came to fall in love with Stargate. It was originally written as an introduction, but not used, so here it goes.

be warned: 22 couplet sets with a triplet at the end, each line eight syllables... yeah, I nearly lost my geek status with this one... )

Did I mention how hard it was to find something that rhymed with Teal'c? Yeah, it is. I also noticed how kind of sad it is that I admitted my original writing may never come back... *sob*

Its a tiny little ficlet, but strangely it has me a bit speechless, which is actually quite rare. [ profile] a_loquita wrote a very curious and thought inspiring "Footnotes" I haven't pinned down what I like about it yet, but its definitely something. I'll have to think about it for a while, but while I do, I thought you Stargaters on my flist might enjoy it as well.
samantilles_at_lj: (Default)

So, today I bought a condo. 1400 sq feet all to myself!! This is my first home-literally I've never even rented an apartment before! I never did see why I should be paying someone elses mortgage with renting. So today I signed the contract to build and buy my first home!! I picked out my cabinets, countertops, carpeting and tiling options, as well as cable and phone jack locations!! *whew*. It's been a bit whirlwind!!! But If I thought I lived cheaply before, well now all my entertainment will be online (as I won't be able to afford going out anymore) so yeah for fanfic!! Will go braindead now...

Its one thing to feel like crap, its totally something else to not be able to move your head around without excruciating pain.  What started as the flu last friday has now progressed to a full blown ear infection, throat infection, and a separate nose infection.  I've got a swollen gland on the left back that is so inflamed and swollen, any movement against it is wimper-worthy, including leaning my head forward, backwards, turning to either side, laying down, sitting up, drinking, etc.  The stuffy nose and coughing I could sleep through, but not this in two days.  *wimpers* the underside of my nose feels like its got a few-day old first degree sunburn.

But despite all this, I must admit the late night stargate chatter going on is very distracting--i don't quite notice that at three am I still can't go to sleep or get more comfortable.  Its quite a shame that one of these days i'll go back to sleeping semi-normal hours and have to catch up on all of it in the mornings.  I've had loads of laughs (even though each one of them hurt!) and it just makes me fall in love with stargate all over again *squishes youknowwhoyouare*

So I should be happy it is in the 60s and not snowing. I am incredibly happy I have a fully charged iPhone to keep me entertained... And I was supposed to be out of the office for over an hour anyways running errands.

because... )

Because those are my keys and my purse in my locked car. I couldn't stop the door closing as I was loading stuff in the car and dumping out a can of soda... Now I'm stuck in a parking lot. I should be happy I have AAA and they'll be here in an hour.
