My FantasyButterflies flip the pages of the dusty book.My Fantasy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My hair unravels into an ocean of pearls and gold.
I skip a step and twirl on one foot,
Perfectly balanced by Mother Nature and
These ballet flats.
I pump my knee and swing up and down on my tip-toes,
Smearing mud on my pasty shoes.
I laugh because the critters in the wind are tickling my chin,
Dancing among the current in the sky.
All around me I see blue and red and gold wings,
Floating above pin-wheel blades of grass
And blue milky skies.
Their voices are high,
But my ears have surpassed me!
I can hear all throughout the land,
Through the forest on the other side of the creek,
To the tip-tops of the mountains.
Wings buzzing all around me,
Crashing into my eardrums,
Lifting me up towards the lightening-rod sun.
I am lightly tanned,
And look darker against my bleach-white dress.

AwOken 2.5 Released!!!Hi all,AwOken 2.5 Released!!!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm very pleased to announce the official release of the new 2.5 iteration of AwOken icon set!
Among various things (a total of more than 1000 icons newly designed or completely redrawed), the best improvement comes from the dramatic increase of colored icons. Now the iconset is bright, colorful, funny and fresh, mantaining its typical minimalistic style as well.
All the three typical iconsets (AwOken, AwOkenWhite, AwOkenDark) comes with the colored version by default. Obviously, this can be changed through the customization script. Thus, the old monochrome, good looking themes we got used to are still available (even though you have to dig a bit to recover them)!
An important thing is that the color option is available also in customized colored iconset as well. The idea here is that the backbone style will be solid and choose by the user (for example, the color of the status icons), but there will be the possibility to use the colored apps side-by-side with the overall
GTK theme preferences - Customize GTK themesCustomizing a GTK theme can be frustrating, especially with both GTK2 and GTK3 themes lying there. And why go through all the hassle when you want to change just few things. You no more have to! I've made a GTK theme configuration tool that allows anyone to change some basic elements of a GTK theme easily (both GTK2 and GTK3) with a simple interface.GTK theme preferences - Customize GTK themes1 year ago in Personal More Like This
