The thread name says it all.

Pleas only post links to your desktop or use thumbnails, no window stretching pictures allowed.

My current desktop
I use the 'Hide desktop icons' thing, keeps everything nice and clean. If I need something I use either the Start menu or Quick Launch.

On the wallpaper is Fuu from Samurai Champloo.

Quick Launch icons are:
First row: Winamp, Playlist of all my music, FireFox, Outlook Express, Photoshop, MyDocuments, Movies folder, Pictures folder, Desktop, Google Earth, Music folder, SmartFTP, English dictionary (haven't ever used it I think), CCleaner
Second row: GNUF Poker, T6 Poker, Triobet Poker, PKR, PokerStars, PokerRoom, Risk III, World of Warcraft, Worms Armageddon, Civilization III Complete Ed., Warcraft III: Frozen Throne, Warcraft III, Counter Strike, Half Life 2

From the second row I only use Triobet Poker really, and I haven't played that in ages :P

This is my administrator color.

Messy...I'll clean up, don't worry  :P

I made that wp of Anderson Cooper myself, I kept it all in b/w so it's not too distracting.

Sander, I see an evil star like symbol there!!!...and I know how to get rid of it , hehe.

Heheh, why am I not surprised?

Is it just me or does Taiji look a little uncomfortable somehow in that photo? :P  Hard to explain... maybe it's because of the way he's holding his arm up or something.

Oh, and nobody wants to see my desktop, really.  I'm not very clever with things like that: I still have the swirly blue wallpaper that this computer came with when I bought it six years ago...

Oh... well, I'm afraid it's just the too tight jeans of... my pinup. :D But that's okay... nobody's perfect.

Hmm, good point, probably the jeans.  I guess anyone would be uncomfortable when they're THAT tight. :!:

Here's mine (made by Yzaleen). I removed some picture because they're private.

I let her choose all the pictures for this one. It's why there're some Gackt and Hyde pics :D lol !
She should be making my April wallpaper right now :D (I got a new each month :D).

cause i'm the youngest child in a not... at all rich family and well i always had to fight to get an at least... kinda working comp XD
now this comp is not very new or fast, so windows xp would just run extremely slowly on it and thaT's not very useful.

I'm mostly happy with win98 anyway. I can upgrade once i work and get a faster comp

Ok I was just curious ! It's just that nowadays most of "old" computer can still run Windows XP.

But I'm like you, I prefer an old OS running fast than a new one running slowly !

Hey, why be embarrassed?  Kabuki theater rocks! 8)

Pretty good movie too, though I thought the song&dance number at the end was a little... strange.

because he only plays female roles 8D XD

Yeah I loved the movie, but i love all of Kitano's movies... they're so great, they just have another feeling of sadness and violence than western movies. Subtile and on the other hand so explicit.
But I couldn't watch them every day... it's hard to take them, i think.

Hey the tap dance scene is cool!

Well, that's kabuki for you. ;)  Some of those guys who play the female roles are really incredible actors-- I've gotten to see some kabuki theater live, and saw a man in his 70s (apparently a very famous kabuki actor in Japan) playing a young woman in her 20s.  Sounds strange, but the guy was amazing and utterly believable... he had played the same role for 50 years.

And I haven't seen all of Kitano's movies (yet?), but I thought Sonatine was really good.

Hmm, honestly I'm not sure-- it was a few years ago that I saw him and I don't precisely remember his face. :?  But his name was Nakamura Ganjiro III, and his specialty was the character Ohatsu from... ah, what was the name of the play... it translated to "The Lovers' Suicides at Sonezaki", or something very similar to that.

ah alright, then that's not him ^^ but there are a few really good older actors. I really need to see a play myself one time.
It's very far up on a to do list for when i get to japan.
I think japanese theatre and traditional dance is just amazing
