Could Comet ISON Be the Event of 2013… AND the 21st Century?

Comet_ISON_discoveryOn the Eve of (Mayan) Destruction, which so many people have predicted to be the end of the world, I thought I’d play a little sooth-saying of my own! Mind you, my prediction is a little bit more scientifically based.

Right now, there’s a little comet sitting about 600 million miles (965 million km) away, beyond Jupiter. It’s called Comet ISON, or C/2012 S1. ISON stands for International Scientific Optical Network. It is an organization to which the comet’s two discoverers belong (Artyom Novichonok and Vitali Nevski). They discovered it on September 24th, 2012.

186 X-men Movies Widescreen Wallpapers (1920×1200 pixels)

These 1920 x 1200 X-men movies wallpapers are also good for 1680 x 1050, 1440 x 900, 1280 x 800 and 960 x 600 pixel monitors.

There are surprisingly few wide screen monitor wallpapers for movies for some reason, especially considering they’re almost all in wide screen format these days. The situation is worse for older movies. That’s why I’ve made a whole bunch here, from graphics I found online, altered and enhance. I still have more coming that I hope to add by December. They need a little more work than the ones here.

Of all the wallpaper sets I’ve created on this site, I have to say this has been my favourite. I love the X-men comics, and I thought the casting and costumes created for the movies’ characters were fabulous! The movies were spectacular, too, and I only wished they put one out each summer. Goodness knows they’ve got enough story lines to create that many for a long time… and it’s not like they don’t make a ton of money, either!

I hope you enjoy these wallpapers if you have a wide screen monitor. I have more for other monitor sizes coming by the end of November!

Hello Kitty and Sanrio Widescreen Wallpapers (1920×1200 pixels)

There are a lot of Hello Kitty and Sanrio wallpapers out there, but there are hardly any big enough for widescreen monitors that are so popular today. I don’t know why that is, whether the Hello Kitty fans don’t have large monitors, or whether they don’t care to have Hello Kitty wallpapers that much. Regardless, here are some. I created them from various graphics I found on the Internet, doing at least a reasonable amount of touch ups and adjustment to each from the original graphic.

This set is for 1920 x 1200 pixel widescreen monitors. They are also good for 1680 x 1050, 1440 x 900, 1280 x 800 and 960 x 600 pixel monitors. If you’re needing another size, please click on the links below.

Some wallpapers may be a bit bright for some people, but I didn’t like looking at these images either darkened or faded. There is a nice range of intensity among these wallpapers so hopefully, you’ll be able to find at least a few you like. You can either get one as a desktop wallpaper, or a set to use as your own Hello Kitty screensavers via instructions below.

Avatar Movie Wallpapers Collection 7 (1920 x 1200 pixels)

These wallpapers are 1920 x 1200 pixels in size for widescreen monitors. However, they are also good for other sizes listed immediately below. The operating system on your computer should know how to scale them properly. There will be no distortion or warping of the images as the other sizes listed just below here are of the same proportion:

  • 1680 x 1050 pixels
  • 1440 x 900 pixels
  • 1280 x 800 pixels
  • 960 x 600 pixels

For a movie as  popular as Avatar, there aren’t that many great and large images to choose from to create wallpapers. I’ve collected what I could find and did a fair bit of touch up to them to create this collection and those of other monitor sizes listed below. Most of it was reducing noise because the pictures were terribly grainy, so it wasn’t like I altered the avatars or anything. I also took out a lot of advertisements that are annoying to look at and did not put any of my own.

Due to the lack of good images, I also added a few from the video game, which has some pretty good images of its own. Of course, they are video game quality, not movie quality, but as pictures, they were better quality than most of the movie pictures I found. Whichever you like, I hope you find something you like in the collection below.

My Avatar movie and video game wallpaper collections are also available for these other sizes:

  • 1024 x 768 pixels (also good for 800 x 600 and 640 x 480 monitors) — 61 wallpapers
  • 1280 x 960 pixels (also good for 1152 x 864 monitors) — 61 wallpapers
  • 1280 x 1024 pixels — coming
  • 1440 x 960 pixels — 61 wallpapers
  • 1600 x 1200 pixels — 60 wallpapers
  • 1920 x 1080 pixels — 53 wallpapers
  • 2560 pixels wide (includes 2560 x 1440, 2560 x 1600 and 2560 x 1920)— 75 wallpapers in total
