1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six 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 never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Awhile back, I asked m31andy to give me six icons to wax lyrical about.

Sex girl patrol is my favourite sketch by Canadian sketch comedy legends The Kids in the Hall. In terms of humour, it's actually probably one of their most conventional sketches, but it never fails to crack me up. Basically, it's a bad, bad parody film within the show. Dave Foley was ridiculously hot as a girl. Insanely. I was more than slightly confused when I saw him in a dress and realised I had a thing. I am no longer confused. The truth is; he was hot. So, so hot.

I kind of didn't realise I was madly in love with Sam as a character until I rewatched State of Play and kept comparing Cal to Sam. This icon is a reaction to that. There are a few completely amazing shots in State of Play, and this is taken from one of them; Cal standing in the centre of the frame, with everything around him blurring out of focus. It seemed appropriate.

Time is on my side, yes it is. I needed a non-fandom icon, and this was it. There's no significance of the time on the clock; I pulled up random clocks on stock.xchng, liked this the most, and added splashes of colour to liven it up a little.

Black Books! Okay, so the thing is, I am madly in love with both Mr Bailey and Mr Pegg, but for some reason, I only have this icon to show for it (my Hot Fuzz icons don't exactly count.) This comes from a wonderful scene where Simon's playing a jerkhead bookstore manager at the shop Manny has got a job at to run away from Bernard. Simon's character suggests Manny cuts his hair and hands him the means with which to do so. He uses this picture as persuasion. Every time I rewatch this I yell "no, Manny, save yourself!" at the screen.

Aingeal picked this one too, so clearly it speaks to people. Shawn/Pineapple. This is my Psych OTP. See, I like Shawn/Jules, Shawn/Gus, Shawn/Lassiter, and many other combinations besides. My only hard and fast rule is that Shawn has to have sweet, sweet love with his pineapple. Then I'm good to go.

This is a shot taken from my front yard (as in, my front yard up in the North of South Australia.) One night there was this absolutely stunning sunset. I didn't manip the image; it really was that orange, darkening into purple at the far reaches. The answer to the question 'is there life on Mars?' would be a yes, I think. I sometimes feel like I'm on another planet. But I love that.

Today I remembered this and asked aingeal8c for six more.

Zapp Brannigan from Futurama is one of my favourite characters, and I love quoting him. Brannigan's Law is like Brannigan's love, hard and fast. Hahaha. Just thinking about Zapp makes me laugh.

undeniablynikki made this and I think it's just beautiful. Once again I needed a non-fandom icon, and I wanted something serene and calming. I use this on comments that need some tact, and a "yes, it's a triumph" icon won't do.

This is my favourite episode of Life on Mars: 1.02. I didn't love the first episode, if I'm deathly honest. I quite liked it, but I waited a week to watch the next one (by that time, 6 episodes had aired in the UK. If I love something, I usually mainline as much as possible.) The next week I thought I'd give it another go because I adore Phil with the passion of a thousand suns; and suddenly everything clicked into place. Suddenly there was a show that could be as hilarious as it was dramatic. Suddenly I was watching everything I had available to me in one day and glee-fitting all over the place. It's scenes like this one; with Sam lying back on the grass, laughing and enjoying life, that made me love the show.

Psych/How I Met Your Mother --- Shawn and Barney would be complete BFFs. They are quite similar characters in many ways, although I'd like to think Shawn's slightly less messed-up, and is certainly less of a slut (Shawn is such a flirt, but I don't think he gets all that far beyond bantering, most of the time. The first episode of Psych disputes this somewhat, but it also contradicts other things that occur later in the show.) This icon says "a bro-match made in heaven", but it looks like it says "a bro-match made in beaver", and I find that teeth-achingly funny.

Black Books again. This is Dylan Moran behind the scenes fluffing a line and giggling. He's awesomely cute.

How much creative, expressive joy am I missing out on by having just the one icon/avatar? I do wonder sometimes.
29th-Apr-2009 11:58 am (UTC)
I usually only remember to use multiple icons when my add-on for LJ changes it for me! You'll notice my default gets used a lot more when I am on my laptop (say, in Adelaide), because I just forget.
29th-Apr-2009 12:02 pm (UTC)
I hadn't noticed, actually. I tend to not pay much attention to people's icons unless they're animated, and then I'll either be amused or irritated, depending on the prevailing mood.
29th-Apr-2009 12:04 pm (UTC)
So clearly you're missing nothing! ;)

I don't think I have any animated icons anymore.
29th-Apr-2009 03:18 pm (UTC)
I think that I don't pay attention to other icons because I never pay attention to mine. It's just what I look like on-line. :D Maybe I would look at other icons more if I spent more time thinking about my own.

But I think I quite like not thinking about icons much.

Oh go on then!

29th-Apr-2009 12:13 pm (UTC)
There only be five?
29th-Apr-2009 12:14 pm (UTC)
I picked six! I picked 'kirsteena', 'the doctor is in', 'rock', 'purple prose', 'they gone?' and Gene's arse.
29th-Apr-2009 12:17 pm (UTC)
Aha, five were showing - can do!
29th-Apr-2009 12:10 pm (UTC)
Hee Zapp Brannigan. He has some excellent quotes.

It's very calm. Lovely colours.

I think of that as the happy Loz icon. Yay LoM love.

I admit I did read that as beaver. Hee hee.

29th-Apr-2009 12:13 pm (UTC)
It reads exactly like beaver. *facepalm* Thankfully, that is still appropriate.

29th-Apr-2009 12:38 pm (UTC)
beaver equals heaven less a couple of short sticks. Yeah, I can definitely see that one!

You are evil. :p

Shawn and Barney would be complete BFFs.

:D? Do me? LOL, someone already tagged me, but I'm a sucker for icons! :D
30th-Apr-2009 10:37 am (UTC)
Rawr ;)

30th-Apr-2009 01:16 pm (UTC)
Someone already picked up this one!
30th-Apr-2009 01:20 pm (UTC)
Ooh, okay, how about
29th-Apr-2009 01:40 pm (UTC)
Did you ever see The Wrong Guy?

It's not great, but there's this running gag throughout the whole thing where people keep thinking that Dave Foley couldn't possibly be who they're looking for because they think he's a woman. XD
30th-Apr-2009 10:38 am (UTC)
I never did get to see it. Whilst I love Dave, I refuse to waste several hours of my life on the amount of shit he's been involved in to pay the rent (even though I totally mainlined Celebrity Poker Tournament when I was mad for him.)

Did you want me to pick six icons?

>3 I know that feeling. I found it by accident the other day and thought it might be amusing. It also has Jennifer Tilly, whose voice used to annoy me mightily but who I'm finding more amusing lately.

Oh, if you like, I guess. XD

29th-Apr-2009 03:23 pm (UTC) - appropriate icon is appropriate?
Ooh, Shawn&Barney. The BFF fic is still my favorite explanation for The Pineapple Incident ever. The differences in their relationship/commitment issues would make for interesting interactions, if it was ever brought up.

Take a look at my icons if you want~
30th-Apr-2009 10:47 am (UTC) - Re: appropriate icon is appropriate?
:D Thanks! Oooh, you have so many awesome icons.

(how could I not?!)

Very cool meme. I want to play too!
