Dying When Someone More Famous Dies

https://digitalcitizen.ca/category/writing/Prince Philip died today. So did some Rapper DMX dude. The day Michael Jackson died, Farrah Fawcett also died. Depending on your interest, one or the other meant more to you.

133 Twilight New Moon Backgrounds for Blackberry Bold 9000s, Palm Pre and HTC Hero, Magic, Dream, Snap

These are backgrounds or wallpapers for the Blackberry Bold 9000, Palm Pre and HTC Hero, Magic, Dream and Snap. The graphics are in horizontal orientation, 480 pixels wide x 320 pixels high, which means they could also be used as horizontally for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iTouch. The proper vertical orientation set for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iTouch can be found in this link, 155 graphics.

Or try my original Twilight backgrounds set for iPhones, Blackberry Bold 9000s, Palm Pre and HTC (both orientations combined)

I didn’t have the time to put captions to these graphics but I think Twilight fans know who’s who in them. I’ll label them when I get back from vacation mid-December. I just wanted to get them out there for people to enjoy before I left.

To get these wallpapers, please:

  • Click on an image to see it full size.
  • Right click and choose Download or download in whatever ways your browser does.
  • Click Back to go back to this page or click a thumbnail below the large picture to move on to the next one.

You’re on your own to put it on your Blackberry, Palm and HTC, I’m afraid, cause I can’t justify the need for me to spend money on one so I haven’t got a clue how to do it!

These were all created from pictures in my posts of high resolution Twilight and New Moon printable 6×4 picture cards, and posters from 8 x 12 to 20 x 24 inches, perfect to create photo transfer gifts for Christmas and other occasions! The cropping is sometimes different, but that’s about it. Give them a try!
