Challenge and More Upload Issues
Yes, I am having troubles with uploading again. I did manage to get the new art and a new brush up early this morning though. Right now I am trying to get the challenge entries to upload. I have added the thumbs for entries from CourtneyBlu and Vinny. I am working on getting the actual entries up through the upload option in blogger. So far it seems to be working.
Thanks for participating Vinny and CourtneyBlu. I hope to see many more challenge entries soon.
Updates and New Art
Okay, so the brushes are finally back. That was a pain. Happy downloading.
I have a bunch of new art to see. Check the center column for the latest or just head to the graphic art section and pick out some new Orlando Bloom desktops. Yum. I used some textures from Tre and The Magic Box. Check them out and you will want to use them in everything you create.
Until next time...

General Site Updates
Okay, so Fragile Muse is gone... not to worry though - you can still enter the Challenge on this page. Look in the center column. Those of you that entered the last series of challenges at FM, I will get the awards out to you asap.
Also, the brush section may be down for a few hours since I am having upload troubles. Actually I can only upload html files and the brush page is a php file. Weird huh? I don't know...
I'm currently doing some fine tuning to this design as well. Speaking of the design, I recieved a question about it in the guestbook. The question basically was why don't I have any templates like the designs you can find on my site... Well, because I want the site to be original all the time and not look like anyone elses. If I put out a template like this particular design then there would be mass produced carbon copies of it everywhere. So, thanks for the question, but I won't be making this design available any time soon. Sometimes when I get sick of a design I make it into a template. So it may happen someday.

I am thinking seriously of closing Fragile Muse. I didn't want to, but it seems I have no motivation anymore. I don't want it to lag off into cyberspace unattended. So, this is the compromise I came up with for myself... I will post regular challenges here on this site. This way I can just add a page or two here and there and not have to worry about regular updates to FM. I like this idea especially since 1ge gets a lot or regular traffic from graphic artists. I think the challenges will get a better response. What do you guys think?

Yeah, so I've resorted to memes. My brain simply isn't functioning lately. Hopefully, this site is at least semi-entertaining still.
Todays Meme: Thursday Threesome
Onesome- Beginnings: Are there any television shows out there that you've watched regularly from the very beginning? Or for those of you not into TV, any book authors that you've read from the very beginning?
This is were my geek starts to shine through... Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Mad Mad House, and Star Trek Voyager. I'm so proud.
Books: Linda Lael Miller's Vampire Series, Marion Zimmer Bradley's Avalon Series, and anything else by LLM, Nora Roberts, and Jude Devereux.
Twosome- Middles: What about shows that you came into in the middle of the season but immediately grabbed your attention and turned you into a die-hard fan? Again, for non-TV fans, have you ever begun reading a series of books in the middle and then just had to read everything else in the series?
Hmmm... this one is a toughy for me since I don't watch a lot of shows other than the ones I just mentioned. X-files is one I simply enjoy and I also like Xena, Hercules, and Sliders. Can you tell I watch the Sci-Fi Channel a lot.
Books: See above answer
Threesome- And Ends: Recently, a number of big name shows have ended, Friends, Fraiser, The Drew Carey Show, and the cult hit, Angel. Did you watch any of the big finales? Have you ever been really sad to see a show go? Ok, readers, here's one for you. Have you ever read the end of a book first? Why? ;)
I watched Angel and Buffy like it was my job. https://1greeneye.net/pixels/smilie.gif I was completely depressed when Buffy ended. There may have actually been tears. I watched the Angel finale last night and I have decided that if Joss Whedon does not make a movie of some kind he will get hate mail from me. Love ya Joss, but you can't end an entire show with a cliffhanger and not expect people to go "What the...?" Oh, and the Friends finale... that show jumped the shark after Rachel had the baby, so I wasn't too sad to see it end. It was great for a while, but I lost interest.
