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.

[ profile] queer_theory chose these:

This is an icon that I made of Annette Hanshaw. She was a singer in the 1920s, she sang Tiptoe Through The Tulips and Let's Fall In Love, among others. I'm not really into jazz or 20s music, but I remember when Jasie listened to her a lot, and I really liked her songs. She had a beautiful voice. I'm not quite sure why I decided to make this icon, and I'm not sure why I've kept it so long. I do like it, I think the contrast is a bit too high but not annoyingly so. It's simple and I think it's a gorgeous picture of her.  

This is from Father Ted. It's a sign that the milkman has in his truck because he's the man-slut of Craggy Island. That episode is hilarious and I love this icon like a fat kid loves cake and I will never delete it. I find it's good for really random posts.

This was one of my first Band of Brothers icons! I like to think of this as a transition icon because I got obsessed with BoB after I was obsessed with All Things Simon Pegg/Nick Frost/Edgar Wright.

This is one of my newest icons. We watched Mitchell (MITCHELL!) last weekend, and then this week [ profile] iconzicons made a post of MST3K Mitchell icons. I was very pleased. :D

One of the Beatles icons that I made last year. This is my sleepy icon and I really really like it. Not only is John quite pretty in it, I like how I messed with the contrast and the curves a bit. I think it's one of my favorite icons that I've made.

It's my oldest icon! I made it when the newest Hummer ad campaign used that slogan. It made me lol, and I was still very much in the BTVS fandom, so I made a few icons with caps of Spike getting some action. I also made one with a cap of Spike in the episode with the Buffy Bot, but I liked this one more.

And now, back to watching the new Who special!

When you see this, post another Buffy quote in your LJ. Let's see how long this can go on.

"I want to take comfort in you, and I know it will cost me my soul, and a part of me doesn't care" - Angel (I LOVE THIS LINE! SO MUCH! You can just hear the swelling music, can't you? Aw man, season 3 Buffy/Angel was so funny.)

I'm starting a new meme! Mostly because I want to post an Angel quote that isn't him being lame.

When you see this, post an Angel quote in your LJ. Let's see how long this can go on.

"I have no problem spanking men." - Angel
1. Comment to this and I will give you three people.
2. Post this meme with your answers.
3. Provide pictures and the names of the three people.
4. Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.

Snagged from [ profile] fletcherism, because I am a whore for memes involving music and lists.

This is supposed to be the 15 most influential albums of my life, but I couldn't narrow them down, so there's 30. 15 albums from my childhood/preteen years and 15 albums from my teenage years.

I'm going to try to be honest with this list. Musical warts and all. )

This Doctor Who vid I don't know why I love the combination of corny 80s music and Doctor Who, but I really really do. I will always giggle like a mad woman when I see one.

It's so lame, but downloading .wav files of TV show themes for ringtones made me so happy. I have to do some converting to make everything work, but still, I will hopefully have the Quantum Leap theme on my phone, and that is just fantastic.

I watched 5 episodes of Strangers With Candy today, which brought me much lulz. Also, I cleaned the living room and the kitchen today, which brings a nice sense of accomplishment.

Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post a line from the first however many songs you want that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Bold out the songs & list their name when someone guesses correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is cheating, gang.

I usually don't do year in reviews beyond the meme that I did in the last post, but I figured I'd do a quicky.

I finished my first year at the UofU and I started my second.

I got a 4.0, finally.

I saw Wilco 3 times and met Jeff Tweedy.

I saw Andrew Bird, Tilly and the Wall, Neko Case, Retribution Gospel Choir, and The Fleet Foxes.

I went to California, twice, both times very fun and awesome. The first time I went, I went to PCA/ACA conference with Haley and Jasie, and it was geek/nerd heaven for me.

I went to Idaho for the first time. Not remarkable, I know, but it was still a new place.

I VOTED for the first time! Late August to November were crazy, and politics became my new crack.

I declared my major.

TV I watched and enjoyed muchly/squeed over: Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Torchwood, Doctor Who, Classic Doctor Who, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, 30 Rock, Top Gear, QI, Peep Show, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Californication, Weeds, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, and The West Wing.

Movies I watched for the first time: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fight Club, Clerks 2, 12 Monkeys, Burn After Reading, Tropic Thunder, The Dark Knight, The Philadelphia Story (and many many other Cary Grant movies), American Psycho, The Dreamers, The Exorcist, Nosferatu, The 2nd X-Files movie, Planet Terror, Death Proof, The Queen, Waitress, True Stories, Diary of the Dead, and Willow. Probably more, but I can't remember them at the moment. Oh, and I've watched half of Apocalypse Now: Redux over the last few days. Watching that movie is like reading Heart of Darkness: I can only handle so much before I want to take a nap.

Books I read: Mostly just stuff for school, but in the summer I read Misery. Yeah I suck at reading when I'm not required to, but I read a lot of awesome things for my classes, that I am apparently far too lazy to list them.

Overall grade for 2008: A- It was pretty kickass for me I think. I know I've forgotten stuff in this post, since I tried to type it up in 20 minutes.

Well, I'm off to Salt Lake with my mom so I can get a ride to Staci's party in Ogden from Flora. I wish I had a car.

Happy New Year everybody!

1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.


I didn't make this macro, but cardboard Ainley!Master is so funny!

And here's an extra picture of Five being all adorable.

I stayed with Jasie for the weekend, and she's much better. Her face is pretty much completely healed, but her chest and arm are still kind of bad, but they should heal up in the next week or two. I had a lot of fun with her this weekend, we watched TV, carved pumpkins, and went to the farmers market. Good times. :D My pumpkins are pretty bitchin'. I carved a white one and it's pretty creepy. I was going for a ghost, but it kind of looks like the dead baby from Trainspotting. I also carved the Batman logo into a regular orange pumpkin, which is quite impressive for me since I have uncoordinated retarded hands. I took some pictures that I'll post soon.

My mom took me back to Salt Lake today and she brought her new maltese puppy. That dog is the cutest damn thing in the entire world. Her name is Jackie Brown and she is just so adorable and cuddly. She's so small and energetic. Today she ran around a lot and chased me around the yard. Afterwards she was pretty exhausted, and on the ride to Salt Lake she passed out on my lap for the entire trip. There is nothing better than an exhausted puppy in your lap that only wakes up to get you to start petting it again. I miss that dog already. I want to steal her from my mom.

1 - Go to first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Random quotations: last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

If you want to do this again, you'll hit refresh to generate new quotes, because clicking the quotes link again will just give you the same quotes over and over again.

3 - Go to flickr's "explore the last seven days" Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

I love the first one, and I was quite lucky to get that quote and that pic. :D Oh, and that is supposed to be 'coffs' not 'coffa', I would have changed the font, but I liked it too much to care about confusion over the 's'.

The second one makes me laugh.



Since the first one uses a Virginia Woolf quote, I think it's time to bust out my Virginia Woolf icon.
