random icon meme!  
01. If you'd like, comment to this entry saying 'ICONS!' and I'll choose six of your icons.

02. Make an entry in your journal and talk about the icons I chose.

I said 'ICONS!' to birdgirl78 and she chose the following 6 for me to comment on: (no lj-cut as it was epically failing)

Right well, this one is Nikola Tesla (as played by Johnothan Young in Sanctuary) - direct quote from episode, 'The Five' in which he's talking about the plans for his weapon technologies and how he 'shared' it with several different parties. I just loved everything about that scene and he's attitude - it was hilarious! The real Tesla did tend to blindly believe in the goodness of humanity whereas this Tesla (who's a vampire) is very much in it for his own reasons. He was also flirting at the time, hence the choice of still image - I think it's kind of flirty - flirting with trouble, mainly.

Oh - this was made in about five seconds when i finally got sick of all the stupid things that the scifi channel does (like cancelling my favourite shows, changing its name plus about a billion other things) so i went onto their site, nicked their logo, cleaned it up a little and added my sentiments. Needless to say, i find cause to use it all the time. it's very much an icon for a particular purpose.

Another Nikola Tesla icon. Johnothan Young again, only this time it's his stage play, 'Brilliant, The Blinding Enlightenment of Nikola Tesla'. I stole the scene from youtube and all i could think was, 'Rant-Rave' when i saw it so it's kind of become my rant icon. Obviously, my Nikola Tesla obsession is shining through here - the 'mad scientist' also appeals to me and the fact that he's standing on top of a giant globe is kind of like 'world domination' as well. so all and all, one of my favourite icons.

Oh, this one has quite a story. Firstly, the phrase, "NOT HAPPY JAN!!!" comes from a Yellow Pages ad over here in Australia and everyone quotes it when they're NOT HAPPY. lol It's a cultural thing. We were in english class once, the teacher was FUMING at us and she yelled NOT HAPPY!!! and all of us, very quietly whispered, Jan... at which point we nearly ended our school career then and there. Secondly, it's a BSG reference. The cartoon is based on the character of Brother Cavil - a Cylon who is usually the calm one of the operation so when he's mad, you know it's bad. Thirdly, the cartoon (which I drew) is part of a larger image for [info]spread_the_fear which i can't find at the present but i may go and dig it up from my room later. Spread_the _fear was (and may be again) and fanfiction challenge for BSG with the companion journal

love questions Love and a Question Mark... Obviously Stargate Atlantis fandom. I used to love the Mcweir (Mckay/Weir) fandom, and it was always Rodney who was like, 'I love her' and weir who was like, 'eh?' LOL hence the icon. i guess i just thought it was cute. It so badly needs to be redone though - i made it long before i found my feet in photoshop.
I uh - don't have an excuse for this icon really. the first time i had a go at this icon, it ended at, '(and not in a good way)'. I then realised that i had HEAPS of space left to play with, so my brain just started ambling along - throwing in a few random stargate ideas in there (there were lots of sentient bugs on stargate) not sure if anyone ever ate them though - maybe mckay - and then i haven't the faintest where i came up with 'trading the steering wheel' - or if spaceships even have them. OMG it really is a random icon. Lesson - never make icons after cake.

*dies laughing*
I love that you write this like I'm going to know ANY DAMN THING about it. *sporfle*

And I think you totally *should* make icons after cake. Also one of my dear friends (about a week ago) had this crazzzzzy nightmare about sentient bugs in her pantry who were trying to build a civilization with cereal boxes. She kept going in the pantry and thinking "ew bugs" and killing them before she remembered they had a right to live too and they were civilized. She blamed this on a class she's teaching about the British Empire. Her closing remark was that she woke feeling horribly guilty because she had stepped on their high priest.
