DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: That I am a giant dork, yes.
WHAT FANDOM DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Doctor Who -- nearly one-quarter of them.
AND THE SECOND MOST: Alias, by a hair.
WHAT SHIP DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: I think it's a tie between all of them. I don't really go in for ship icons.
ARE YOUR ICONS MADE MOSTLY BY OTHER PEOPLE: Mostly by me. I usually feel weird using somebody else's icon.
DO YOU MAKE ICONS: Yes, though not as frequently as I once did.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: I like them.

Icon is unrelated. I just made it and I kind of love it.

- Went out to a Goth club with [livejournal.com profile] echan Friday night. She totally tricked me into dancing and abusing my poor calves. I can't help it if my idea of getting my groove on involves as little contact with the ground as possible. Clearly I had a load of fun, though, or I wouldn't have agreed to go out again this Friday.

- Finally saw Requiem for a Dream. That is a really really depressing-ass movie. Wow. Half-tempted to write a review for C-H.

- Speaking of, I'm completely stumped for how to properly celebrate the site's tenth birthday in June.

- Been working, ever so slowly, on my Let the Right One In review. It's kind of a bitch.

- Don't want to go to work tomorrow. Gr!

- Quark: The Complete Series is cheese-mo awesomeness. [livejournal.com profile] liz_marcs should get a medal for pimping it.

Reply to this post and I will pick six of your icons.
Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

[livejournal.com profile] spleeny wanted to know about these:

1. 2. 3.
4. 5. 6.

1. Xander (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) -- "All Alone in My White Boy Pain"
This is the slightly revamped version of one of my very first icons. I think I made it for an icon contest waaaay back in the day. Anyway, the look on Xander's face just called for a little Ben Folds. Trufax: the first version of this icon used Comic Sans MS.

2. Jayne (Firefly) -- "Pretty Cunning Dontcha Think?"
A couple (my, has it been that long?) years ago there was an icon tutorial running around about how to convert screencaps into comic-book versions. I made a few modifications of my own (mainly to get a better sense of color in) and did takes on Jayne, Darla, Puppet!Angel, and Andrew. This one is still my very favorite (although the Darla runs a close second for capturing that EC Comics spirit). Everybody needs an icon of Jayne in the hat.

3. JD / Elliott (Scrubs) -- "Just Friends"
I Netflixed the first season of Scrubs, but after watching it, I immediately turned around and bought the rest. I also made icons. I just love this one because the caption isn't related to what they're talking about (she's, I believe, describing her family life at a mile-a-minute) but it sums up perfectly their relationship. They're never going to be uncomplicated and they're never going to be able to state their relationship in simple terms without qualifications or air quotes. Also, the look on her face is priceless.

4. Tchotkes (Wonderfalls) -- "Inappropriate Touching"
This one's pretty much verbatim from the series, which is a delightful and whimsical look at one slacker's rise to grudging responsibility -- all caused by talking animal avatars. It's awesome. In this scene, Jaye (said slacker) is listening to her friend Mahondra tease her about a boy using the two figurines as visual guides. Unfortunately, the figurines take umbrage to this.

5. The Calimari Wrestler (movie of the same name) - "Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know"
Okay, forget the icon for a second, because really, I only have it to sell the movie. Imagine a straight-faced parody of the Rocky movies, except instead of Sylvester Stallone, you have a giant squid. And it's live-action. It's available at Amazon.com, so really, you have no excuse not to see it.

6. Nic & Danny (Hot Fuzz) -- "Now That's What I'm Talkin' About"
I saw this movie twice in its opening weekend and I've probably watched it another six or seven times since then. In HD. It really is what I'm talkin' about. Plus firing two guns whilst jumping through the air is awesome.

From [livejournal.com profile] qkellie and [livejournal.com profile] rhi_silverflame:

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, and what significance it has.

I have 123 icons. Wow. )

jetpack_monkey: (Dr. Horrible - Is Doing Science)
I may have just made a new icon based on the entirely awesome Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog teaser.

jetpack_monkey: (Donna Noble - Chin Chin)
Thirty icons posted to [livejournal.com profile] jetpackvampire, including a metric ton of Season Four Who (The Doctor and Donna, specifically) as well as some How I Met Your Mother.

Minor minor spoilers for Doctor Who 4x11 - Turn Left.
jetpack_monkey: (Barney - Hot/Crazy Scale)
Doing some iconning today to distract myself. Any requests?
jetpack_monkey: (Robin/Barney - Awesome Together)
For those who might not know, I have an icon journal at [livejournal.com profile] jetpackvampire, which I share with [livejournal.com profile] qkellie. I mention this because I whipped up a batch of How I Met Your Mother icons last night when I was stuck on my Frightmare review.
jetpack_monkey: (NPH - What Would NPH Do?)
The Neil Patrick Harris on a unicorn phenomenon is now available in icon-size. Enjoy it.

jetpack_monkey: (The Doctor (10) - Healing Sex)
Right now, there are two very amusing things.

1. Neil Patrick Harris on a unicorn.
2. The icon attached to this post, which I made a couple days ago.

Also, I just posted my 2000+ word review of Mario Bava's Kill, Baby... Kill! and it might be one of the best things I've ever written.

jetpack_monkey: (The Doctor (10) - Should Really Go)
I'm still getting used to making icons in GIMP, so expect my output to be slightly craptacular in the coming months.
jetpack_monkey: (Helo - At the End)
Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.

I'm actually posting using an icon that I absolutely adore that I never get a chance to use.
jetpack_monkey: (Mickey - Boy Wonder)
I don't have enough Mickey Smith icons. Does anybody know of some awesome ones? *smiles*
jetpack_monkey: (The Doctor (10) - Zestfully Clean)
For reasons of pure OCD, I will now break down my usericons page into their respective fandoms in an attempt to show who's getting the most love.

Come witness my wacky listing skillz )

jetpack_monkey: (Cybermen - Funky Squad)
Hey all. Unlike my compatriots fresh from Comic-Con and Writercon, I am not enlivened by the spirit of the creative. Far from it! I feel mired in a general useless sludge of not-caring-very-much. Which is a shame, really, because I think if I did care, I'd do something awesome.

Oh well.

At Con, however, I turned some unused bases from my icon caption contest into fun and funky icons with my very own captions. Classic Who and Farscape icons this way!

At work, but the weekend nears...
jetpack_monkey: (Sloane - Can Hear Jack Breathing)
We've even got dirty icons. The results of Icon Captions: The Board Game (Round 3) are up!. Who was terribly clever? And will you choose to take a little of that cleverness into your heart?
jetpack_monkey: (Mickey - Buh-what?)
Captions for Icons! Round 3 is still in progress. Be witty, damn you.

In other news, my nurse practictioner did not get my ADD prescription mailed out in time and I'm going to be severely wonky today.
jetpack_monkey: (The Doctor (10) - World Must Be Peopled)
Okay, time to put on your clever caps. 33 icons, from three fandoms: Alias ("After Six"), Angel ("Apocalypse Nowish"), and Veronica Mars ("Rat Saw God"). Captions of all varieties welcome. The best suggestion for each icon will be used by me, with credit to you!

Alias )

Angel )

Veronica Mars )

Comments are screened to hold in the flavor. Because of the giganimous number of icons, this baby stays open until the end of the weekend.

New icons!

jetpack_monkey: (The Doctor (10) - Why Are the Pants Gone)
Icon Caption Fun Round 2 results are up! See the cleverness. I'll be posting a new super-big batch of blanks later tonight.
jetpack_monkey: (Giles - Pull My Finger)
Icon Captions, Round 2 ends tonight! We've had some hilarious suggestions, but one icon (#7) has had no love thus far...

Of course, there will be a round 3 with even more icons and more than one fandom!
