Tom in TV Guide
I posted this previously as part of a flocked post, but here it is publicly, so everyone can see it. Tom is featured in the July 14-20, 2008 issue of TV Guide! Here is a scan of the article.

*sighs happily*

Tom has definitely filled out real good, and he just keeps getting better. ;)

I was so thrilled when I opened up my TV Guide and found this! I love that Tom is getting some publicity, even if they are using a promo pic from S4! *rolls eyes*

They have just got to do new promo shots for this season, don't you think?

Smallville's got to be one of the most hopeless cases around when it comes to promos.

Well Alright!! A little Tom love from TV Guide! They owe us for that sexiest poll debacle they screwed up that he should've won.

Isn't it cool?! And I think this is even better than the poll, because it was an editorial choice, not a contest to see whose fangirls could push enter the most. Although I still think the poll was totally rigged by the magazine, because we did push enter the most! LOL!

I know! We hardly ever see him mentioned anywhere! I got ridiculously excited when I saw this. :)

Tom, John and Jason all on the same list! *dies* Tom is so pretty! *pets him*

Tom, John and Jason all on the same list! *dies*

That was my reaction exactly! :) But I'm very happy my Tom is #1. LOL!

NUMBER ONE! Hell, yeah! \o/

I do wish they'd get some new pictures, though. *sigh* SV sucks.

I know, Tom doesn't even look like that anymore. Actually, he kind of never did. :D

yikes that's a big scan.

*drools over Connor*
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 10th, 2008 07:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to the scanning thing! It's bigger than life size! What did I do? LOL! It looked fine on my home computer, but on my work one it's HUGE.

I may try to resize it in Photobucket to a more reasonable size. I am so clueless when it comes to this stuff!
trystan830 From: trystan830 Date: July 10th, 2008 07:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
all i know is my scanner's default setting is HUGE. remember that Jared pic i posted? first i scaled it down - then i said, "know what? let me post it full-size"... and everyone totally thudded. uhm. yeah.

resizing in photobucket sounds good. :)
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 10th, 2008 08:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
I tried resizing in Photobucket just now, and it ruined the quality - it came out looking all pixelated. I think I have to resize it in iPhoto (that's where I scanned it into), and then export it again. I can't do that until I get home from work.

Ack! I'm so embarrassed at my ineptitude! At least the cropped scan in my flocked post looks okay. Sheesh.
trystan830 From: trystan830 Date: July 10th, 2008 08:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
hey - it's fine. when i scan stuff, i resize and crop and tweak all in my PaintShopPro 7... which i only have at home too. :)

*hugs*

Okay, I resized it. If you have a minute sometime, and you don't mind, tell me if it looks okay now. Thanks in advance!

very cool!!

hehe, welcome. ;D

I agree with you above comment. New promo pics are a must!!!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 10th, 2008 10:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
With all the cast changes, I figure they just have to have some new ones, but when LV joined the cast, they only had new promo shots of her and Erica, so who knows? I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Yay for your Tommy-Tom-Tom, but Kevin Sorbo? Really?!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 11th, 2008 02:46 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I kind of wondered about that one, too, but the others are all cool, especially Jason Momoa!

It's funny, Tom looks super pretty in that picture, but he doesn't look like my Tom. First of all, that pic was taken four years ago, and second, I think both the makeup and the airbrushing were applied with a heavy hand. I would have used this pic to show him as the Superman of my dreams:



Or how about this manip:



But then, Tricia Helfer doesn't look much like she did in Supernatural either, does she? :)

Or on Burn Notice last night.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 12th, 2008 01:43 am (UTC) (Link)
Exactly. :) I thought it was pretty cool that they got her for that part. I think she's a really good actress.

Thanks for the scan! The blurb doesn't make a lot of sense (red hot kryptonite? is that a good thing?) but Tom definitely deserves #1!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 11th, 2008 02:49 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, it doesn't really sound like they watch the show, does it? :) Yay for the recognition, though! \o/

Is it too much to say I'm disappointed they used an old picture of Tom??

tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 12th, 2008 05:41 am (UTC) (Link)
I agree completely. That pic is from S4! I really hope we get some new promo pics for S8.

I was totally going to comment on this but all I'm thinking is hey you added a header.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 12th, 2008 11:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
I did! And I'm so excited about it! Thanks for noticing. I tried and gave up on adding a header several times in the past, but I finally found a tutorial I could understand for the theme I like. I followed the directions, picked a banner, cut and pasted the code, and ta-da! Tommy's up there! I'm thrilled! LOL!

I found the header in a fan art thread on KryptonSite. TW1977 over there makes the most amazing wallpapers, and sometimes she makes banners and icons, too. I think this header is beautiful, and that's one of my favorite caps of Clark ever. That's my Superman!
