1. Reply to this post and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a neverending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!
(From the loverly Lizzie, of course!)
In between seasons of Deadliest Catch, Ian and I were sitting at our computers. "I need to make a Fishing Vessel Northwestern icon," I said to him. I found an image from the Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Fans" section, and decided that not only would I make an icon of it, but I would make a blasphemous icon. Soft-touch filtering and pinkness ensued. "I'm on a BOAT!" is a nod to the Saturday Night Live web short.
"... Besides, if we wanted a president who bowed, we would've elected the libertarian candidate, drinky bird." Stephen Colbert was making fun of the big hoopla over Obama's bow to the Japanese Emperor. The Drinky Bird that I got from my dad two Christmases ago was probably the best gift ever. Drinky Bird's slogan, according to Colbert, was "Many Sips of Tiny Water." He paused after saying this, gesturing to question the order of these words with a perplexed look on his face.
This was one of my doodles on a page of notes sometime during Sophomore year. I had an awfully annoying cold that caused my nose to run incessantly, so I drew a picture of myself pie-eyed and leaking snot. Sexy, no? "OMGCOLORBAR" refers to that "blah is Love" thing that people do with rainbows and pictures of their favorite Harry Potter or what-have-you characters.
Hawkeye Pierce Breaking Records. The one from the show, though. Ian and I have all of M*A*S*H on DVD, and I screencapped this moment frame-by-frame because it had to be made into a Livejournal icon. Also present in this scene doing the same thing was BJ Hunnicutt. I will probably bring out my PSD file again someday and make a sister icon to this one.
"Super Mew Icon!" I use this one when I post on PKMNCollectors. I made this one myself. One day, I'll go back in and fix the places where the animation messes up. Mew's foot does a funny little kick partway through that really makes it hitch up.
