CURRENT LISTINGS - ALL

They're like crack. I started with just one fanlisting and then somehow it just grew into...well, this.  Not only is it for all of the things that I adore, but it allows me to try my hand at different designs.  I may not excel at web design, but it seems to make me happy.


Name: Just The Assistant
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/beaker
Category: Characters
Opened: June 30th, 2006
About: Beaker was always one of my favorite Muppets.  Maybe it is the hair, or the nose or his little 'meeps'.  He may be Just the Assistant, but I loved him and still do.  I know that I am not the only one.

Name: The Place of Lost
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/blairthumb
Category: Film
Opened: May 30th, 2005
About: 'Oh spit man.  Oh spit.' I find the Thumb Movies hilarious.  I watched Thumb Wars when I was working in the store and then the Blair Thumb and Thumbtanic.  Wonderful parodies and highly quotable.  The Blair Thumb is my favorite.  'I'm so glad it's not me.'  

Name: Grimoire
URL:http://www.tempestdesigns.com/grimoire
Category: Mythology
Opened: November 5th, 2006
About: It is only natural that a pagan, such as myself, would nab the Book of Shadows/Grimoire fanlisting. I have one and decided to make a listing when it became available.

Name: Just Breathe
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/breathe
Category: Songs
Opened: May 3rd, 2006
About: Anna Nalick is a wonderful singer and her first hit single, 'Breathe' had me hooked. The lyrics are great and the melody one you tend to find stuck in your head when you least expect it.  Or maybe that is just me.

Name: Firebringer
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/brighid
Category: Mythology
Opened: June 22nd, 2006
About: Brighid has always been an integral part of my life.  She is the bright one and inspires creativity, beauty and the fire within.  She is also one of my patron goddesses.  When this listing became available, I jumped at the chance to have it.  

Name: Le Pacte
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/loup
Category: Film
Opened: September 26th, 2006
About: Brotherhood of the Wolf is a great film and not just because you see Mark Dacascos in a loin cloth, though it helps.  It is a wonderful blend of action, horror, romance, drama and more all fit within a lovely historical piece.  Love the cinematography.  

Name: They Call Him Bruce
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/bruce
Category: Actors/Actresses
Opened: January 30th, 2006
About: I love Bruce Campbell.  I think he is absolutely brilliant.  Whether it is the Evil Dead Series, Brisco County Jr, or even bit parts in movies like Sky High I find him a joy to watch. Plus, he's genuinely a nice guy.  I met him for a book signing when his first book came out.

Name: Ealain
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/celtic
Category: Art
Opened: July 7th, 2005
About: Ealain is Gaelic for Art. I am a Celt and a lot of the artwork in my home is Celtic in nature.  I especially like Knotwork and the art from the Book of Kells.  I guess it is only natural that I would grab the listing eventually.

Category: Actors
Opened: July 3rd, 2006
About: He plays a perfect husband on television, I wanted him to win Alicia Silverstone's heart on Miss Match and have you seen how cute he is? It helps that he's also a pretty good actor.  Ah, but I envy Jennifer Love Hewitt.  Going to work can't be that much of a chore. 

Name: Desirata
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/courtesan
Category: History/Royalty

Category: Characters
Opened: October 13th, 2002

URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/darkcity
Category: Film
Opened: April 23rd, 2006

URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/eden
Category: Film

Category: Animation
Opened: December 18th, 2005

Name: Enigmatic
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/garbo
Category: Actors/Actresses
Opened: May 26th, 2005
About: There was something about Garbo that made her irresistible to watch.  She was one of the greats, along with Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly, and Kate Hepburn. She was a real starlets.  Maybe it would be different now with how intrusive the media is, but I don't think so.

Name: Like No Other
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/hayworth
Category: Actors/Actresses
Opened: March 30th, 2006
About: When I first saw Gilda, I was completely taken with Rita Hayworth.  How on earth could she make the removal of a glove the most sensual thing on the screen?  You couldn't take your eyes off of her when she was on the screen.  Another one of the great starlets.

Name: Escape With Me
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/horseman
Category: Film

Name: The Enemy Below
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/jaws
Category: Film
Opened: December 18th, 2005

Category: Characters

Category: Television
Opened: May 29th, 2003

Name: Time of Enchantment
URL: http://www.tempestdesigns.com/maiden
Category: Mythology
Opened: June 18th, 2006

Category: Characters
Opened: May 29th, 2007
About: A man so old that he doesn't remember how old he is. A man who existed before chivalry, who watched empires rise and fall and can smirk like no one else can.  When Methos/Adam first showed up on Highlander, I was smitten.  He's a great character.
