It's that time again...

The Icon Meme
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons. (explicitly state that you want to play)
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.

raven_mcbain actually picked 9 of mine.


If you are white, female, and straight in the US, people tend to make assumptions about who you are. For me it usually involves things like church, children, and life-style. Then I reveal myself to be god-free, child-free, and gay-friendly. It throws them for a loop.


My husband made this one. It’s sort of an inside joke. There is a species of toad from the Sonoran Desert that excretes a hallucinogenic substance from it’s back. Stories go back to the 1970s about people licking the toads to get high. There is a Simpsons episode where Homer picks up a toad and licks it. His eyes go wide and he starts hallucinating. I think that’s where the toad-licking joke started for us.


This is the famous quote from Twin Peaks. The owls represented the spirits that supposedly lived in the woods around the town in the show. I did a writing challenge for Twin Peaks a while back and needed an appropriate icon, so I made this one.


This one has meaning on many levels. Mathematically, the square root of negative one is referred to as “i”. And, Pi is an interesting number representing the ratio of the circumference of a circle to it’s diameter. It’s also an irrational number; its decimal representation is infinite and doesn’t repeat. Also, if you read the phrase out loud, it say, “I love pie.” Which I do.


Probably my favorite quote from The Blues Brothers.


Another great and famous movie quote from Woody Allen’s 1971 film Bananas.


I’m not sure exactly what Stef had in mind when she made this one but I always think that Speed is looking around for Horatio at a crime scene.


Reference to the movie Deliverance. I think I swiped the graphic from P. Z. Myers’ blog. Basically a warning that a particular type of supremely illiterate idioticy follows.


I had to have this one when I saw it. For me it’s the ultimate visual pun, and as sharpiesgal put it, “slightly disturbing.” I swiped it from one of the mods at comicstore_news.


occipitallobe picked 6 icons...


This is a cap from Burn Notice. Michael has a very special relationship with yogurt. I stopped watching after the first season so I don’t know if this is still true but yogurt seemed to be the only thing the character ate.


Mystery Science Theater 3000. Not really sure where to start. The most awesome concept in television to date. This cap and quote are from a short called Mr. B Natural and you really just have to see it. Mr. B part I, Mr. B part 2.


Ever read a fanfic that just makes you go O.o WTF? That makes you want to ask the author if they’ve ever actually watched the show they were writing about. I’m not talking AU. I’m talking totally out there and out of character. Fantard.


Honestly, I just like this picture of Speed. The look on his face just say, “You have know idea.”


Ah, Horatio and his gun. There is a lot of Freud there. Not much else I can say.


This is just a really cool example of high speed photography. And contrary to popular belief, it is not blood. The photographer used a red film under the water in a shallow tray to make the detail in the shot stand out better.


We're dropping in number here...
sharpiesgal picked 5


Candy perversion. What’s not to love about that? There is a whole collection of gummy stuff out there. I like my CSI: Gummy too.


I love The Penguins of Madagascar and Rico has some of the best expressions. I was thinking of making a mood theme for the series.


One of my favorite Kurt Cobain quotes. I’ve never understood the need that some people have to define themselves based on others. Learn to like yourself rather than trying to mimic someone else.


This is a reminder of the DC squirrels. Remember them? Not afraid of anything.


I saw this on a page of quotes somewhere and thought it applied very well to myself. Short attention span, easily distra... ooo shiny!

Where Is My Boy?
"Where Is My Boy?" is a song by Faultline.

Wanna know how I know that?

It was played during Speedle's autopsy. See? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqQ18DROpdg

Although, it can be innuendo... very very disturbing innuendo.

All my icons are pretty straightforward (except for like...one) but I wanna play. Pick as many (any by "many", I mean "few") as you like.

I did not know that. Now that icon seems a little creepy. I like my interpretation better.

I'll be nice and only pick 4...




(I had to pick this one)

Michael still eats yogurt. It's become a running gag on the show.

If you make a Penguins mood theme, I want a copy. Pretty please... I love Rico.

I remember the DC squirrels, especially that cheeky bugger that stared me down the day we checked out of the hotel.

I guess I play again even though I really haven't updated any of my icons.

Wow, you have a lot of my icons.











We've done this so many times, I was only able to find five that I haven't picked before.
