Dark Décor – July 29th, 2014

Occasionally I will post things here for you to use to decorate your computer for the Autumn season, of even if you just like things that are dark and vaguely horrific. Some of them will be originals, some derivative work, and sometimes work by others I’ve found elsewhere (with full credit when possible). I hope this will become a regular feature.

Today I have for you the very first “Dark Décor” post, a derivative work I’ve created from a few textures from around the web, and then manipulated in Photoshop. Feel free to download and use as you wish. I am giving this image an “Attribution Non-Commercial” Creative Commons license. Have fun.

I call it “Appealing Grandeur 1914”. The dimensions are 1920 x 1200. Let me know in the comments what you think, good or bad.

Hello, I am the October Geek

Yes, I am the October Geek. I exist in the crisp breeze of an autumn evening when you are walking down that gravel path under swaying trees of red, orange anIt was in the attic-72dpi-MichaelSchmidtd gold. I am the smoke that curls in the air from chimneys, and the laugh of a child in the distance as the sun hits the horizon and dazzles you with dying light. I am a man who loves all things Autumn, and most especially Hallowe’en. I am a geek who loves to play games, read books, watch movies, and generally be a grognard. I am the husband of a geek and a father to one jock, one bohemian geek, and one young geek in training. On The October Geek I will attempt to entertain and interact with those of you who share these delights. I will post reviews of things Autumnal and Geeky. I will post stories. I will eventually even be posting videos and pod casts. This is my experiment, let’s see how I do.
