Wallpapers+

This entire post is crossposted to ONTD_startrek, but they aren't freaking approving it fast enough for my tastes. Sorry if I spam your flist. I love comments!

EDIT TO THE EDIT: GUESS WHAT THEY HAVE A GRAPHICS POST. GOOD JOB BEING NOT OBVIOUS. Anyway whatevs, I'm grumpy now. PLS tell me how awesome I am.


GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL SEXY PEOPLE
I come bearing wallpapers, and a super extreem bonus!

All of these are 1440x900, click on them to get the bigsize.


I love this fucking wallpaper to DEATH. I know I got a little carried away with the textures BUT I DON'T CARE IT IS SO AMAZING. *pats self on the back* Also, upon investigation, it turns out that "Federation Standard" is a FANON concept, and they are, in fact, technically speaking English. Only I and like three other people care! GOOD JOB.


There was a distinct lack of tri-D chess in the new movie, don't you think? Anyway, the new(?) promo pic that was posted just SCREAMED "make a wallpaper out of me" so I did. However, I conveniently eliminated the Spock-not-tucking-his-pants problem by entirely ignoring their feet. *high fives*


Behold, the crouching pose! I think it's kinda weird that he's doing it on some kinda cube thingy when he ought to be doing it on a transporter pad, but whatchagonnado. Right, time for some Star Trek Trivia for those of you n00b fans who only know this movie: Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park is home to a frajillion different TV shows and movies. But most notably, it is Vulcan. Those rocks right there, that's the planet Vulcan, and you can go visit it! It's ALSO the cliff where that Badass Original, Captain Kirk, threw giant rocks at the motherfucking Gorn. Anyway. Every time my dad sees them in something or other, he points and goes "VULCAN!" at it. Right. Moving on. Spock must go! Save his mommy and daddy! >:|

THREE AWESOME TILEABLE THINGS:

right click and save them, you know you want to. Feel free to use them in other things and edit them and add textures or WHATEVER you want. Inspired, obviously, by the sweet chevron fabric for the new uniforms. Mmmm... sleek....

BONUS:

This is where I originally wrote the text for the first desktop, and I liked it so much that I made it and two other wallpapers. msofarc, I hope you're not mad at me for pimping your comm? ANYWAY EVERYONE GO PARTICIPATE GODDAMN. Look at that macro! I made that macro just for you guys! I know how much you bitches love lensflares. I spent a good two hours playing with IMPACT font arrangement. FOR YOU! So click! And at least, you know, read what it's about. *no pressures*





Fresh Young Spock Prime thanks you for your time and clicks by making eyesex at you from across the room!

You are awesome and these are gorgeous! XD I really like the first and second ones, and the tileables are amusing. Question though; would it be possible to get the first one without text~? It's so preetttyyyy but I think my family might object to me using it as is. Anndddd that sounds about as lame after typed out as I thought it would in my head, but yeah.

YOU ARE A PUSSY. YOUR FAMILY SHOULD BE PROUD THAT THEY HAVE A TREKKIE IN THE HOUSE.

Dude! I love your planets one it's so pretty! I wish I got the joke.

there are... there are planets? I guess i see it. I totally didn't intend for them to be planets.

Anyway, the joke:

In the opening of Star Trek, Captain Kirk (and later Picard and later the variations on this depending on the ship of the show, voyager, DS9, etc) says "Space... the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before."

Well according to the hard and fast rules of Proper English, you can't split an infinitive. "to go" is an infinitive and they put "boldly" right in between it! omg! Well that rule is ACTUALLY a rule snuck in by obsessive bastards from the 1800s, who were trying to reform the language and make is ascribe to the rules of LATIN, because apparently it was cool or some shit, I don't know.

So pedantic assholes are always like "oooh, Star Trek is supposed to be about smart people, but if it's so smart howcome they don't get the grammar right wahwahwaaaah"

But you know what? IN THE FUTURE, THE RULES OF LANGUAGE WILL HAVE SHIFTED, AND INFINITIVES WILL BE SPLIT. It's true right now, honestly. It's totally okay to split an infinitive, if you aren't a dick.

And "Federation Standard" is a fan creation to refer to the language the people on star trek are speaking, since we hear them in english but if it were actually our future our language would have shifted to accommodate the absorption of alien languages and cultural concepts. Like space-esperanto!

JOKE: EXPLAINED AND KILLED. *dusts of hands*

Even today's pedantic linguistics dickwads tend to fall on the "fuck your trying to apply Latinate grammatical structures to a Germanic language" side of that debate most of the time. The only people who give a shit anymore are 7th grade English teachers who have had their job for 30 years.

Sincerely,
A pedantic linguistics dickwad.

I could go on and on about how it is actually more syntactically correct and, moreover, natural to split infinitives rather than try to finagle them into some other position in the sentence. But I'd need paper so I could draw copious syntax trees and show the position adverbs are generated in when attaching to verb phrases.

1.) I envy you and your wallpapering skillz, these are sweet.

2.) Science Blue GQMF is totally my new desktop background now. I never use backgrounds that tile, but you have changed this 0.o

3.) Hooray for To Boldly Give

4.) Wait, wait, wait, chess? Oh I think I might love that one and use it the next time I change wallpapers.

Thankees, I think the chess one is the best of this batch by far. If you want to edit it into a header, go for it!
