290 X-men Movies Wallpapers (1024×768 pixels)

These wallpapers are from the X-men movies before X-men First Class, for which there aren’t a lot of graphics to work with yet. I’ll post those separately when there are more. Most of these wallpapers are also available in other sizes and purposes, if this isn’t the size you want your X-men wallpapers in or wish to get them for your other phones, monitors and for printing.

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!

If you’re using Windows XP, you can learn how to create your own customized Windows XP screen saver with instructions via this link.

I also have instructions for how to use Windows 7′s nice rotating background feature to rotate many of these wallpapers on your computer if you didn’t know how to enable it.

Brett Favre, R.I.P. (Retire in Peace)

Aaron Rodgers was named Super Bowl XLV Most Valuable Player as he led his Green Bay Packers are world champions in 2011.

I hope this will put most of the Brett Favre comparisons and such to rest.

Brett never won a Super Bowl MVP, and took a lot longer to win a Super Bowl than Aaron did. Brett also did not win it on the road the way Aaron led his Packers to this one.

Sure, Aaron doesn’t have all of Brett’s records yet… the good and the bad ones, but this is a team sport, right?

One Super Bowl apiece. One Super Bowl MVP for Aaron and none for Brett. One much more epic journey than Brett’s.

Time to stop the comparison as Brett retires, quite timely as his heir apparent rose to the throne. If Brett’s smart, he won’t be coming back. I just hope he can cope with life without playing professional football. With every great climb to the top comes a descent. How one handles that is just as, if not more important, than the rise.

Good luck, Brett. May you retire in peace and thanks for the memories!
