WALLPAPER: Blue Skies (The Leftovers)

Desktop wallpaper featuring Nora & Kevin from The Leftovers

I apologize for basically making two The Leftovers wallpapers in a row. It wasn’t my intention, but I was inspired to make my contribution for the series finale series while the episode was still fresh on my mind. Don’t worry, updates for other fandoms will be coming soon. Once again, this show has been completely snubbed in all major categories with the latest Emmy nominations. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at this point, but I hoped with it being the final season, things would be different. As I said in my previous post, I could go on and on about how brilliant the series is and how much it means to me, but I’m going to spare you my meandering thoughts about life, love, and the universe. This final scene was an exercise in the beauty and simplicity of the art of storytelling, and it encapsulated all the best that this show has become over 3 seasons.

Next: Arrival, Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Bates Motel, others.

I think I’ve now fixed all the broken Photobucket links on my wallpaper pages. The ones on the icon/avatar pages will take a lot longer to straighten out, and I’m not sure it’s worth it at this point. I don’t think anyone visits my blog for the icons anyway. I’ve temporarily removed those pages from the main menu and I’ll put it back up whenever I have time to update them, I suppose.

WALLPAPER: We’ve Barely Caught A Glimpse (The Leftovers)

I know I said something about a new Bates Motel wallpaper, and clearly this is not it. I also know that all my wallpapers for The Leftovers so far are very similar looking. It’s not intentional. I think the show just creates a very specific mood and aesthetic. I also think that I love starry/space backgrounds. This one uses the lyrics from “Overture” which is the first track on Atlas: Darkness. It was supposed to include the entire main cast, but the images from the only photoshoot they’ve done aren’t really conducive to that. The close-ups make it hard to fit all the people in, which is why we’re left with Kevin & Nora. You can also click here for the alternate versions of this wallpaper.

Even after the tweaks I made to my last One Tree Hill wallpaper, I remain unsatisfied with it. So it is possible I’ll keep revisiting that one until I think I’ve gotten it right.

Next: I’m working on new stuff for Alias, The Killing, Bates Motel, and Fringe. But the bigger story is that I’m about 75% done with the new chapter of my AU dystopian Gossip Girl fanfic, “For the Ones We Leave Behind.” I’ve already kept people waiting for too long, so my #1 priority right now is finishing that.
