Friends Only.  

My name is Gemma, I share a birthday with Kurt Cobain, Londoner with Irish tinges living in the concrete jungle where A Clockwork Orange was filmed.

I have one parent, one brother, a boyfriend, one grandmother and a little black cat named after Ozzy Osbourne, Daddy issues and a step sister 17 years my junior, honestly I'm blunt and sometimes slightly obnoxious, I speak without thinking but am overly sensitive and easily hurt, my mind is my own and I won't bend on religion or politics but I love learning about both I vote liberally and I have no idea who or what God is, all I know is I hate Richard Dawkins with a personal burning passion like no other and anyone else who tramples on people's beliefs without consideration.

I'm a fatty loud and proud, time spent worrying is time I could spend eating especially when Sandwiches are so good.

I love Photography and music, gigs and drunken evenings in sweaty armpit venues, marilyn ♥ and the kennedys, mad men & pete cambells bitchface, I am obsessed by storage and my life is in little plastic boxes, I love old Photo albums and Ken Livingstone because they remind me of my Grandfather, Art galleries and history documentaries, shopping online with other peoples credit cards, flatpack furniture and "manly" things, lockets, Patrick Wolf, DIY, Nu Rave and interesting haircuts, old school goths and punks, zombie and vampire novels, vinyl, the 1960's, the 1980's victoriana, cemeteries, being a creeper, Cider & Blackcurrant, I am in love with Bruce Campbell.

& David Tennant ♥

OMG I just noticed today that fragment-icons got deleted! Egads! I know I haven't seen anything come out of there in a while, but I didn't know it was like gone gone. Wow. Way to ever look at my profile, right? lol

Well, wow, I really am sorry. You're one of my favourite makers on LJ ever, I've loved you since you started on at moth-icons! Your stuff is just so talent-ish and unique, and you're just really nice and so drama-free. I remember a while back you did a post saying you were tired of rude, ungrateful people. I agree, they can totally suck. I'm sorry that drove you to closing the place down, although I can completely understand why, how things have a cumulative effect. I apologise on behalf of whoever particularly took the piss and on behalf of myself, if I ever irritated you. I'm sorry, that really sucks, especially as there are so many shitty and/or bitchy makers out there still walking the streets of LJ lol. Anyways, do you make anywhere else now ... I mean not like freebies for other people, but just general stuff? I really like your style and I'd love to see more of your things, whatever they are of. Or are you completely done with the LJ graphics world? As said, I can't say I blame you, both many makers and members can make you just throw your hands up at the whole thing. People can be so cruel, I just never understand it. You wouldn't treat someone you know like that, why would you treat someone on the other side of the world that way ... you know?

Anyways ... add?! haha I know that's random, but I'm sure we'll get along. My whole journal is one giant chavfest. :P And it's the least I can do to make this post actually have a point rather than just to bother you about something graphics-related. ;)
Gemma -: RKO - Destinyjacks_echo on June 19th, 2008 04:16 pm (UTC)
I haven't made on Livejournal in a while, I make as a gifting type deal with my own favourite makers like 2 of mine for 2 of yours type deal, but I haven't the time or patience anymore to deal with a lot of the graphics worlds issues, I read graphic_gripes and totally realise getting out of it was probably a good thing for me, usually now days when I get into Photoshop its to edit my Photographs! [although I think that might have been its original purpose anyway!] exactly you're one of the few who actually understand the amount of effort that goes into this side of graphics and really appriechiates the time taken, and you never gave me a request I didn't enjoy doing.

sounds good, I need more LJ friends, :) I always see your posts in other peoples journals and I think we'd definatly get along!

ok let me just start off with saying your freakin awsome! lol I am a huge wwe fan as we talk before in a comment! and I read everything you have here in your friends only post and think its awsome you don't let anyone give you any shit! this is by far my favorite thing you said in your post here "if this offends you then its your problem not mine and that high horse is probably causing you a lot of arse pain. " lol I would of never thought that! I was wondering if I could add you to my friends list? if not I totally understand! :) you rock girl!
Gemma -: Jeff - over your headjacks_echo on July 31st, 2008 10:26 pm (UTC)

I'm always so scared to ask people if they'll add me, but I'm mustering up some courage right now. Maybe I be added?

On a random note, your Jeff icons make me totally drool & make me want to make icons of him.
Gemma -: Jeff - Broomstickjacks_echo on September 28th, 2008 01:18 am (UTC)
I'll be honest...I kind of wanted to add you for..well years? it has to be years now right? I have a consumate fear that I never have anything in common with people then its all akward and stuff and then *meep hides*
