Bad geek  
I've just found out how great VLC is to make screencaps. I know, I'm only five years late.
Now I just need to learn how not to screencap the characters when they're making funny faces...

(I swear I did try to make a weird one of Sara, but couldn't manage with the couple of vids I have on my laptop. She's just that pretty and perfect *shrugs*)

Poor them. I try to screencap them for the first time in years, and the first thing I do is mocking them *g*

Hehe!! There seems to be an art in avoiding funny faces when making screencaps! ;)

I used to have VLC on my old computer and it was brilliant!

I don't use VLC a lot, but it's free, light and it installs in a blink of an eye... And it's neat to make screencaps, apparently. I'm sure that I did try to screencap with it when I first installed it years ago, but either I didn't understand how it worked or it was not as handy back then. Go figure!

I've downloaded it again to my laptop; The Boy lost it when he had a breakdown last year! And I'm sure I can use my box set and transfer the eps. I'm going to try, anyway.

I think VLC has got handier! :)

Michael looks as if his face is melting, and Linc is clearly channeling Tarzan. \o/

LOL, well, Lincoln is calling Michael: I guess it explains the primal cry? *g*

Hehe!!! Michael brings out the animal in Linc!

Lolz! That is absolutely spot on!!

OMG, brilliant! Crooning Michael and Operatic Linc, in stills from their latest music videos!! XD

This is particularly funny to me because I am RIGHT NOW in the middle of using VLC to take a zillion caps from my season one DVDs. :D

Bwaha. And the screencaps actually are from a music video, BTW *g*

Um. Taking screencaps, you say... Would it be just for the pleasure of screencaping? Or would that mean fanarts at some point? o_O

Actually I was trawling for screencaps of whumped characters for the picspam thread I'm planning to start... But of course it turned into a big squee/drool-fest and I ended up with over 300 caps. XD

I would love to do more fanarts, but the problem isn't with getting the Linc and Michael shots, it's with finding suitable boy-on-boy photos to use as a basis. ¬_¬ It's surprisingly difficult! Most stuff I find is either way too porny and unsexy, or the body types are all wrong for M/L. Oh, the trials of being a smut-loving fangirl! *sigh*

Well, in your defense, it's not easy to stop or even control this kind of fest, is it? *g* I saw you posted the pic-spam, I'll have to hop to uncuffmybrother...

Yes, I can see the issue. I've only tried to make manips a couple of times, it was only one person in the pic, and I had a hard time finding suitable "bases". Granted, I put Michael in a dress and Sara in a tux, but still :-p

Most stuff I find is either way too porny and unsexy

I can see the issue here too. It's probably easier to find this kind of material than what you're looking for :-( I must say I prefer... let's say R-rated manips to NC-17 ones.

Oh, the trials of being a smut-loving fangirl! *sigh*

It's almost a full-time job!
