I did a B5 thing (two, actually).
Over the last couple months, Tarma has been semi-obsessed with various themed versions of 2048. Every few days, it seems, I get a link from her with another version: Avengers, Lord of the Rings, Pushing Daisies, even Gene Wilder. Since I’ve gotten to where I can win the games, I play each one to winning and screencap it.
I decided to get in on the themed 2048 action by making a Babylon 5 one (you can find it here, if you are so inclined). At first I thought I might try and find pictures online to use, but I ended up using my own screencaps. However, in my search, I stumbled on this fantastic Babcom desktop wallpaper by steelgohst. It’s not something I want to use on my desktop — I’ve been using Silviya’s gorgeous Babylon 5 painting for a while — but I thought it was a perfect wallpaper for my phone!
My default phone background is this TARDIS one, and I’ve had my SHIELDs up for months as the lock screen background. Since the TARDIS background is perfect for shortcut readability, that means my lock screen is where I can have fun, and I thought putting the Babcom logo there would be perfect. Unfortunately and unsurprisingly, steelgohst’s wallpaper just doesn’t work for my phone, so I made my own (720x1280), using steelgohst’s as a guide.
I’m not gonna lie; it’s making me pretty happy right now. I keep turning my screen on just to see the Babcom logo.
Also? Doing all of this is making me want to have a rewatch. It’s been over a year since the last time I rewatched the show. (I suspect that watching Star Trek with Mark will also make me want to rewatch B5, but that’s another tale.)
