Eleven years ago, I watched the last ten minutes of Dark Angel's pilot, and was hooked so hard that I ventured into the strange wilds of the Internet in search of more.

Eleven years later, I am fundamentally changed by my time here, with all of you crazy awesome people and your passionate diversity and endless acceptance.

I'm about to start a new career in massage therapy, and it's been awhile since [personal profile] thedorkygirl made my lovely former default icon, which has been in constant use since 2003. It seemed like a good time for a change.

How's it sit? Pretty cunning, don't you think?

I am at the point of being sick and gross where I start to sympathize with the Fringe characters who die in horrible ways at the beginning of each episode.

....Which reminds me that I never posted those Fringe icons I made.

Red and blue versions of glyphs, and lots of Olivia. See my current icon for one example )

Icon Meme 2: The Icon Meme Returns

- Reply to this post with the words "BY THE ANTI-CLOCKWISE PROPELLER OF ICARUS!" (or whatever; I don't even know what that means) 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.

[personal profile] musesfool chose these icons:

by virtue of having more than 6 icons, finally )

My keywords are very prosaic, so I'm not going to discuss them: they're generally: [fandom][character(s)][one-word descriptor]. I think [personal profile] recessional said once about her icons that they were like an alethiometer, and that's a wonderful description of how I use mine. There are obvious uses, like using my Life icon when I'm talking about real life stuff; but that same icon will be used for multiple emotions and contexts, like feeling meditative, or discussing something urban, and several others. I imagine most people do something similar, but feel free to tell me I'm wrong.

For years, I've only had the basic number of icons on LJ, so I had to use versatile icons; you'll rarely see me with single-fandom, single-sentiment icons - not because I don't like them, but because they feel like a luxury for people with the icon space.

First off, I made myself an icon! It's from that recent XKCD strip, and I needed to trade out my fall icon for a winter one anyway.


I have fangirled Zoic Studios, the special effects people who did Firefly, for awhile now. I knew they were my kind of people when I saw the Battlestar Galactica miniseries and a little Firefly-class ship flew by in the background of an early scene. So when I heard they'd started a blog, rather creepily named I Design Your Eyes (apparently a Blade Runner reference?), I went over to explore.

I was scrolling past a fundraiser notice for an LA theater group, and went, "Hey, is that Wendell from Bones?" In tights and hilarious plaid shoes? And indeed it was! LOLtastic, right?

But even BETTER, there were pictures from *another* production last year that apparently had the scorchingly hot combo of Chris Pine and Jamie Rae Newman.

Barefoot. Bedheaded. Shirtless.

Don't say I never did nothin' for ya. :D

Okay, combination GIP, public service announcement, and journal rec today:

I was wandering through my bookmarks and rediscovered [ profile] teasel. Not only does she write amazing essays on LotR, she posted the Top Seven Reasons Why Voting is Like Sex and icons to boot (*points to icon*).

*makes shooing motions* Go! Why are you hanging around my boring journal, anyhow? ;)

*glomps Karen* SQUEEE!!!

Karen made me this adorable icon!!! It makes me want to preen ;) And that is just the coolest font ever!

Karen-Bear, I send you many, many wet kisses via eager Johnny Depp clones (and a few Michael Weatherlys, just to add color). *big, sloppy hugs*
