Via quitesometime , holy shit: Two Blog Entries You Should Be Reading. "Just when you're ready to break up with the Internet, forever, and take back the lingerie you bought it, you stumble on things that remind you that it's sort of good for something." I made a Time magazine blogger believe in the internet again, y'all. What have I done?

Speaking of the Breaking Dawn recap, I got bored and fished out some digital scrapbooking background samples (mostly from Scrapgirls, I think), skimmed over the Twilight recaps, and started making text icons. They would be fancier, except that my broke-ass copy of Photoshop 6.0 has decided it doesn't want to load 90% of my fonts. Please, if you have moar skillz or more cooperative software, feel free to make your own. (And please use icons with profanity judiciously, y'all.) POW!

Speaking of speaking of Twilight--we gotta get this Harry Potter thing out of the way, because THE PLOT HAS THICKENED. As you will recall, yesterday WB [Did Not] Care About Harry Potter-Lovers' Fragile Psyches and pushed Half-Blood Prince back to July 2009 because--and I will keep saying this until I am blue in the face--The Dark Knight made 400 million billion trillion dollars this July, so their bottom line is taken care of for this year. On the other hand, 2009 is looking pretty desperate for a lot of the studios, WB included, so now they have an opportunity to move HBP into a vast wasteland and make more of the moneys in a calendar year when it might really, really make a difference. Not because the movie is bad. NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE SCARED OF TWILIGHT, HOW DOES THAT EVEN MAKE SENSE. But we'll get to that. Anyway, lamentation was heard throughout the land, etc.: WB's Alan Horn: "We Love Our Fans" Please Don't Hurt Us; More from Alan Horn at Rope of Silicon: "The picture is completely, absolutely, 100 percent on schedule, on time. There were no delays. I've seen the movie. It is fabulous. We would have been perfectly able to have it out in November"; Go Ahead and Disregard That New Entertainment Weekly Cover, or, EW's parent company (guess who. No, guess) totally hung them out to dry; Harry Potter Delay Evokes Angry Outbursts Amongst Fans (Thrill! to the outpouring of entitlement rage catalogued at Fandom Wank!); Did ‘Harry Potter’ Release Date Change To Avoid ‘Twilight’ Competition? AGAIN, I SAY UNTO YOU: BITCH, PLEASE.

But then, as if speaking the name had summoned it:

With Harry Potter Gone, 'Twilight' Moves Up to Nov. 21!; Edward Cullen Scoops up Harry Potter's Leftovers. Damn, it's like Single White Vampire up in here. HAI U GUYS WE ARE TTLY THE NEW HARRY POTTER! LOOK, WE EVEN HAVE CEDRIC! And somewhere Robert Pattinson is holding his head all like, "I can't take you people anywhere."

(akathorne : "The Hair is hoping for pumpkin pie after the premiere, though.")

You know what would be made of sunshine and ponies and win? If WB got sick of all the fan complaints and moved HBP back to November 21.

Congrats on your serious promotion in TIME - is it weird that I'm just plain excited to see you there (in addition to being excited for you)? Or is that normal?

Also... I don't know if this is an accepted thing to mention, but since you linked to Growing Up Cullen icons in this post-- I made twenty Growing Up Cullen icons, I linked to them on twatlight and the Twilight icon community, and also apparently balcarin will be linking to them soon (lord knows how that happened), but... are you interested in linking to them? I think they're pretty decent, at least. They're at http://inthe-redshirt.livejournal.com/3912.html. Sorry if this is weird, and please don't link to them if you don't want to, honestly.

But congrats again!

Dude! I think those are the ones I linked to the other day! That's why I said "more" (or "moar," whatever) today--I think yours was the first set. Half my friends list is using them now. : )

(Let me know if you do another set--I love those.)

...oh. I guess I... skipped out on linkspam that day. Holy crap. Well, that explains the two pages of comments when I usually get almost none. Thanks you SO MUCH. I really appreciate it, you've no idea! (This is kind of my equivalent of being on the TIME blog. Just so you know.) And I will definitely send word if I make more - I may or may not have time before the end of summer, but we'll see.

Hee! Well, to be fair, I have had some massive linkspams lately. Sometimes I forget what I've already posted and I post it again the next day, so it's easy to miss these things.
