Third time lucky?

I have no idea why rapidshare set a limit of only 10 downloads for BeatIt. This little thing seems to be a jinx!!
Here, guys, try sendspace, I really hope it'll be alright now.
Sorry for all the confusion!

4 doodled frames with quotes, 2 elements and 2 word arts. Paper taken from "the show has left town"

Been shedding some tears but I'm feeling kind of alright. I just gotta bury the good memories that little extra bit deeper than the bad ones.

download here and enjoy!

Fair is foul, and foul is fair...

hover through the fog and the filthy air.

Good stuff first: Peaches has given me the award shown above! Thanks, chick, you're a star. This means a lot to me!

And Nachtamazone, I don't need to put stuff in words, do I? x Had you not also been awarded, I would have done so.
People, the freakshow is over. Here's to us, one more toast, and then we'll pay the bill.
I am officially single again, after a weird night involving a smashed window, the police (3 times, once to make an arrest, twice to make sure everything is fine... bless...), a cup of (cold) tea, Mr Moon, Nightwish and cold satin sheets. I am very, very tired but don't want to go to bed, so maybe I post a little freebie later; I have started doodling something that might be worth sharing.
Thanks, everybody, for your lovely comments on my kit, you guys rock!

The show has left town (or is, at least, packing up)

Sorry it took so long, guys. Not all elements are shown, there are 52 altogether, if I counted right.

IT is not really playing a part here, the whole thing just drifted towards the whole behind the mirror- thing and I went along.

I don't get much PC- time at the moment, which partly is due to my job... I work in a bookies just around the corner from my house, and our shop team is more like a bunch of friends than just colleagues, so I end up spending a lot of time there. The customers are mainly locals, too, and most of the time it's like Cheers- Were everybody knows your name. Just without the drinks, what a shame.

At home, things are not always running smoothly, hence the name of the Alpha and kit. The cats are just fine, and as far as everybodys health is concerned, nothing to moan about. Just a bit of reality kicking in, and if you ever got kicked by it, you will probably know what I'm on about.

I have basically decided that I can't spend the rest of my life as a glacier... frozen, most of it hidden beneath the surface. Right now, another nasty heap of earthly matter is more like it, the volcano. Those buggers are stood there peaceful and quiet for aeons, and all of a sudden they erupt, taking everything down that's in their chosen path. Growl.

I let you off, folks, 'nuff said. Gi'z a shout if you like the kit, hate it or think I went wrong somewhere, I thrive on feedback.

Thanks for hanging on!
Message for my TDS- girls: Maedels, alles gut. Ich bin dabei, meinen Kerl rauszuschmeissen, was sich als schwieriger als gedacht erweist. Kopf sagt weg damit, Bauch sagt Das Arme Schwein, Herz sagt "ich sach nix!". Ich bin die meiste Zeit auf der Arbeit, und wenn nicht, bearbeitet der Meister den PC, so dass ich nicht wirklich drankann, aber gut und viel zum Lesen komme, was ja so schlecht nicht sein kann. An Eurer Stelle waere ich stinkesauer auf mich, aber ich mag den link nicht aufrufen, weil man(n) ja zur Not immer ein Uebersetzungsprogramm finden kann, was ggfs mehr Nerven kostet als noetig.
Ich hoffe, meine Sandra hat Euch gegruesst, ich vermiss Euch. Aber sobald diese (nicht zuletzt finanzielle) Last von meinen Schultern ist, wird fast alles fuer mich wieder so, wie es war, anders formuliert, ich schmeiss Asi samt Kiste raus, kauf mir nen bloeden Schlepptop und gut is.
Nur eine Frage der Zeit, und ich habe das untruegliche Gefuehl, der letzte Toast ist gesprochen.

The show has left town Upper Case

Each letter has a different texture; there's more to it than just blue, folks!

The kit is growing, slowly, but surely. The paper used for the preview is part of it.

As Britain is drowning in a sea of snow, I am getting up late, getting a helluva lot of late shifts under my belt and not much sleep at all. But did a wise man not say (sing) "I'll sleep when I am dead"?

Tell you what, I miss going to gigs, shouting out lyrics that lurched about in my head for years, paying loads of £££ for warm, stale pints served in plastic jugs, competing with everybody about who sports the most authentic whiff of patchouli and just, as Germans say, let God be a good man. I miss NOT buying merchandise on the premises and then hope for the flying Dutchmen to still be around, two for a tenner, XL fits all.

Not saying I ever attended a friggin Bon Jovi- gig, no, Ma'am. But I rode along the white cliffs with The Who, rang Hells' Bells with AC/DC, got poisoned by Alice Cooper, attended the Monster Party with Die Aerzte, cried for Dana O'Hara with Sonata Arctica, walked in the air with Nightwish, bathed within the light with Scar Symmetry, burned churches with Amon Amarth, found the Temple of Love with the Sisters of Mercy and abandoned ship with Subway to Sally. Just as supporting Glasgow Celtic took me all over Europe, music made me go places, meet people, experience stuff.

Folks, if you read through this rant up until this point, please try and remember one thing- you can bury your true self only for so long. It will rear its head occasionally, triggered by a song, a flick, a smell, a distant memory, a book, a dream. It never goes away, it only rests, just to come back with full force.

I have decided to embrace it. Which obviously means bothering you with lenghty speeches about nothing at all, but hey, deal with it, that's me!

What was I on about... oh yeah, the alpha. Each letter is different, no special characters (as they are included in the lower case) and the kit is making some progress.

Gimme some feedback, folks, I thrive on it. Criticism is more than welcome, otherwise I will never know if/ where/ why I'm going wrong.

The show has left town

My preferred way of expressing myself is creating stuff.

Life has been a b!tch recently, and my putting up with it is coming up with a new kit.

This Alpha is the first bit of it, as everything else is not yet quite finished and might not be for a while. But it will be some sort of alliance of Alice behind the mirrors and Stephen Kings IT.

Guys, amI the only one freaked out by clowns?

For those of you who know me, please don't worry.

I might be enigmatic, but everybody is healthy, the cats are just fine (and that's what matters most!) and nothing has happened that could bring the world to an untimely end.

The paper used for the preview is part of the new kit, and the Alpha features a few special characters.

I think it might best be used with a tad of transparency, but I thought I would leave it up to you guys.

The watercolour texture is by SadMonkeyDesign, eerily fitting my gloomy mood at the moment.
You get 25 different textures, lower case. Gimme a shout if upper case is required!

Enjoy, folks, thanks for bearing with me.

German ex pat in West Yorkshire, I am living with The Man and 5 crackpot cats in Leeds. When I'm not "improving" something with spray paint and a glue gun or hide behind either a book or a PC screen, I am the deputy (mis)manager of a local bookie. (hey, all those glue sticks aren't free, and a job's a job- or so I keep telling myself!) Feel free to drop me a line, I love to hear from all you guys out there!
