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.

X-men First Class: Are You Ready?

June 3rd is when the next X-men movie is due out. (official site)

X-men First Class is set during the 1960s,  and focuses on the relationship between Professor X and Magneto, as well as the origin of their groups, the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants.

I don’t know about… but I’m so freakin’ excited I might mutate into something soon if the Earth doesn’t turn fast enough to get to June 3rd!

I’ll be sure to have a collection of X-men wallpapers made from the movie. I already have over 150 X-men wallpapers for many monitor sizes on my site if you’d like some, with the images coming from the previous 4 X-men movies.

I also have over 200 printable 6×4 postcard sized photos of those X-men wallpapers to take your love of the X-men with you beyond your computer screen.

Also check out my X-men backgrounds for iPhones and Blackberries (as well as Palm, HTC and other smart phones).

I can’t wait, man! Can you???

p.s. What’s with the release date of June 3, 2011? 6.3.11 has 6+3 and 11 or 9/11.

Ugly Stamps: A Song by Me

In the handful of times I have performed this song in public, I have jokingly introduced it as the song that might get me kicked out of the Commonwealth one day. That’s because it bemoans the state of the Canadian stamp with Queen Elizabeth II’s face on it on it as she ages. I don’t know why Canada Post decided to have an embossing of the Queen’s profile, like on the back of a coin, for many years during her youth, on its Queenie stamp. Then, sometime in late 80s, as the Queen started nearing seniority, Canada Post decided to put her senior face on the stamp, a face that would only wrinkle away as any other does with age.
