Motherfucker, do you have any idea how much fucking WORK it would be to move all of my literally thousands of icons to another site and then go back and update all the links on over 100 posts - to say nothing of the icons I posted to challenge comms, my picspams, the gifs I've used all over the internet, mood themes, my custom LJ layout, etc.?

I am not paying fucking $400/year just to save it, though, so brb, mourning all the fucking hours spent on graphics no one will ever see again.

[phone rings; it's my mother]
Me: Hi.
Mom: Oh, hi. I didn't even hear the phone ring.
Me: That's because you called me.
Mom: I did?
Me: Yep.
Mom: I thought you texted me.
Me: I did.
Mom: I was trying to get back to that screen. I didn't mean to call you. WHOOPS.

Anyway, snagging a meme from [livejournal.com profile] fluffyfrolicker and [livejournal.com profile] rosaxx50 because I have been SERIOUSLY REMISS in my icon-making lately. Haha, remember how I used to participate in all these comms and challenges and then I just posted my FIRST ICON POST in like 4 months yesterday? Yeah, we should fix that.

So! Pick a number + fandom/character/ship, whichever suits your fancy ♥ and I will make icons. If you want to give me specific caps, that''s okay, too.

1. Faceless
2. Looking Down
3. Bruised & Battered
4. Up Close & Personal
5. Scenerygasm
6. Full Body Shots
7. Colors Abound
8. Silhouette
9. My Emotions
10. The Space
11. Light
12. Tickles My Pickle (whatever. who knows what might happen)

Meme snagged from [personal profile] rosaxx50:

Give me a top five topic that is fandom-related, personal, random, whatever, and I'll list my top 5 for whatever you listed in a new entry, and will explain my choices. Top five of right now or top five of all time! For example, top 5 books, top 5 otps, top 5 colors, anything!

On another subject, can anyone recommend good icon challenge comms, preferably here at DW? I made my first venture into competitive icon-making with [community profile] iconthat and I'm quite enjoying having specific icon goals.

next_to_normal: (Amanda S laughing)
1. Reply to this post with "DO NOT MOONWALK AWAY FROM ME!" and I will pick six of your icons.

On another post, [personal profile] ruuger mentioned being unable to find old [livejournal.com profile] bendybendy/[livejournal.com profile] bendy1 icons now that those journals have been deleted. Being a Bendy fan myself, I happen to have a TON saved on my computer. I uploaded them to a photobucket album in case anyone else has a need for snarky and silly JM icons. I have some Torchwood, some text-only JM quotes, and a bunch of JM at cons and in other roles.

(Of course, if you use any of them, please credit her and not me!)

next_to_normal: (can i play too?)
Because y'all know how much I luuuurve my icons! Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] eilowyn:

Go to my icon page, pick out a couple icons you've never seen me use, that catch your eye, that remind you of me, that you demand an explanation for. Link 'em (right click+copy url), post 'em, and let me tell you all about 'em. It'll be fun! I promise!
next_to_normal: (can i play too?)
Because I NEVER get tired of icon funtimes!

The what icon do you associate with me? meme!

1. Do not look at the comments.
2. Take a look at my userpics.
3. Post a comment with the icon of mine you associate with me. Leave commentary if desired.
4. Repost with your default icon and profit.

HOW MANY ICONS DO YOU HAVE: 249
OUT OF HOW MANY AVAILABLE ICONS SPACES: 250
IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: Probably, lol. My thirst for icons is insatiable.
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: Um, that I am obsessed with icons?
WHAT FANDOM DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: BtVS/AtS, which I couldn't really separate because I'm not entirely sure which icons came from which show, lol.
AND THE SECOND MOST: Veronica Mars.
WHAT SHIP DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Weirdly, Spike/Dawn.
ARE YOUR ICONS MADE MOSTLY BY OTHER PEOPLE: All of them.
DO YOU MAKE ICONS: I am quoting [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42: The day I learn to make icons is the day I never get anything accomplished ever again.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: Oh, I doubt it.
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: Sometimes fun.

DO THE MEME.

I'm sure probably everyone has seen it by now, but I wanted to put in a plug for [livejournal.com profile] deird1's vid The Dance. Quite possibly one of the best visual summaries of the show ever.

Also, a random observation: I have 430 icons saved on my computer. Of those, 73 are angry/annoyed/sad/WTF or otherwise negative icons. In comparison, 44 are happy/smiley/positive icons. What does this say about me?
next_to_normal: (wish it was mine)
I'm insatiable, people. I swear, I'm going to end up buying another icon package before the year is out.

Anyway, I've been going over my epic icon collection, and I've decided I need the following:

1. a *facepalm* or "oops" or some other icon to indicate embarrassment
2. Spike on his laptop with a caption that says "reading Spuffy porn"

Anyone who can point me in the direction of such icons gets a cookie!

(Also, have been working on something EPIC with Emmie today. Should be posted tomorrow.)
next_to_normal: (Willow meh)
I mean, sure, I have the "whatever" and the "don't care" and Toby looking apathetic, but expressing myself through teeny pictures is a delicate art, and specificity is important. Can't just be throwing icons out there willy-nilly, right? So if you have any good "meh" icons, point me toward 'em - any of my many fandoms will do.

ETA: I HAZ ONE!!!!

So why the need for "meh"? Well, I've been watching more movies! This batch is better than the last one, but still nothing that wowed me.

Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.
