    A few years ago I went snowboarding in Japan and on a whim took a panorama from the top of a mountain with my phone.

    It wasn’t until I got home and looked at it on my computer screen that it hit me how fantastic of a photo it was – it’s been my background ever since!

    On my laptop? Some random circle thing I chose because it meshed well with my rainmeter stuff.

    On my desktop? The Ark, from Halo 3.

    My old roommate and I have a feud over which Zelda is better. He likes A Link to the Past. I like Majora’s Mask. So naturally, to really drive the point home, everything of mine that can possibly have Majora’s Mask on it now has Majora’s Mask on it just to rub it in a little. This includes all of my desktop backgrounds, Console themes, avatars, profile pics, etc. Even at my office computer where he has never been, but any time I’ve snapped a picture at my office of whatever I’ve made sure to somehow capture my work desktop background in it when I send it to him. I even found an artist at a local comic con who sculpted a Majora’s Mask, bought it, and mounted it in my living room. It may the pettiest thing I’ve ever done.

    [This screenshot](https://imgur.com/a/HmZPY) I took of an episode of Naruto: Shippuden. My roommate convinced me to finally watch Naruto, and one day at like 1am when I was watching the show, this scene came up, and I was nearly crying laughing at this expression. It just looks to stupid, and I love it

    Mostly artwork that I’ve made for my stories. It changes every 5 minutes or so from a collection of ~30.

    A solid grey background with the Ryzen circle on it. No desktop icons w/ some rainmeter makes for a pretty desktop

    Every time I finish a game I add a picture to my collection, which rotates every 15 minutes. Rotates between a PlayStation logo, far cry primal, the last of us, mirror’s edge:catalyst, and Skyrim. Adding horizon:zero dawn soon.

    An image I took from a thread on /wg/ almost 5 years ago. It’s kinda like a painting of two guys fishing for giant cokes in the ocean while riding a boat sandwich.

    Took a screenshot from the youtube short Overwatch: Recall. Dr. Winston and an as-of-yet-unnamed simian gaze out on the big blue marble, his words echoing across the stars: “Don’t see the world as it is; dare to see it as it could be.”

    I have a bunch of images that I got from Pexels.com and cut to size, mostly chosen because they’re brightly coloured objects. I have my computer taskbar set to select a colour from my desktop wallpaper, and I set it to cycle through the pictures one per minute, so I get a constantly updating colour scheme as I go about my day.

    In the middle of it all, there’s a single photo of my best friend’s daughter covered in glitter and laughing maniacally when we were making Christmas cards last year. I don’t see it often, but on the rare occasions it’s on my screen when I’m on my desktop it never fails to make me smile. The random element of it keeps me getting too used to it, so it always perks me up.
