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.spleeny
wanted to know about these:
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.
