I'm oddly obsessed with bridges (you can poke fun - I can handle it :) ), and I just recently discovered this magnificent piece of engineering amazingness. It's the Millennium Bridge @ St. Paul's Cathedral. I think I might have been sporting this in the last thread, too. I don't remember, but I love it.

You have to edit the iTunes.rsrc file manually in order to change the elements. First I downloaded took a GUIkit file (Rhino is the theme) and extracted it using GuiKitty. Once extracted, I found the iTunes.rsrc file there. I opened that up in ThemePark. Then go into ~/Applications/iTunes -> View Package Contents and grabbed the iTunes.rsrc file from there and opened it up in ThemePark. Once you have those two files opened, just drag all the elements one-by-one from the Rhino resources to the iTunes resources. It will take about 15-20 minutes to do all of this since you are dragging each image one-by-one. Remember to do a backup of the original iTunes resources just incase there's a screw up.

It's not mine. Right now I can only dream of owning such a cool car. It seats only one passenger and I assume there's an airbag for the passenger so it'd wouldn't be safe for a joy ride with a baby.

I was going to ask the same thing. I figured it was some sort of front end for iTunes but that is just a guess. I have seen it in other desktop pics.

If you notice, he has the Weather Widget on the desktop also. I forget how to do that as I keep my Widgets hidden till I need them.

I figured out how he is doing it but my Widget is different.

You are exactly correct... (it's a black and white gelaskin on the lid of my MacBook).. In PS I took the black from the original image, and pasted it on the "Aqua Blue" (tiger default) wallpaper to create the current wallpaper.

I like yours punkroxor, it flows. Everything matches up well. Although the offset dock would drive me insane.

I really like that theme Punkroxor. Sweeney Todd is a great story and the movie version that came out recently was pretty good.

Thanks! I prefer my Dock to be there.. I don't know why, but it isn't "in the way" as much when I'm doing my work in CS2.

Thanks also! I've not seen this movie/musical, but it looks interesting.. The theme is called "Sweet Slumber," however, I'm only using the icons/wallpaper from it, and the actual theme is called "Black Cherry."

I'm also using the theme "Metal Lion 300" for FireFox, based on the movie 300, but the colors of it suit the rest of the theme rather well. :)

Now if CandyBar would actually take my icons for my apps, I'd have my dock more customized too.

Hmm, maybe it's not supposed to be Sweeny Todd, but it certainly reminds me of it.

Why don't you just replace the icons directly instead of being at the MErcy of Candybar? It's a great program for quickly changing icons, but it's not necessary.

The theme is actually based on Alice in Wonderland..

But anyways, I've tried to do it that way, but it just doesn't work for me.

I got it from here.

Seems to be a guy called "CARLOS GUTIERREZ" according to your link.

You are exactly correct... (it's a black and white gelaskin on the lid of my MacBook).. In PS I took the black from the original image, and pasted it on the "Aqua Blue" (tiger default) wallpaper to create the current wallpaper.

Great memory you have sanity!!!!


The artist is Nanami Cowdroy - some awesome work features on her own site if you wish to use more PS and make some funky desktops, let me know if you do, I'd be interested in some!

Brilliant - found a link to this image via flickr about a week ago, was featured in some underground art exhibition and is by Banksy... as you probably know. Love his work and some of the other pieces on show were quite interesting too!

http://blog.flickr.net/en/2008/05/08/under-waterloo/ for more work featured alongside your desktop piece if you're interested or didn't know about it already!
