LJ Icon Meme

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five 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.
 eonen  picked these for me...

This is a screancap from the Canadian TV Show Slings and Arrows If memory serves, it from the whacked artsy fartsy director's verion of Romeo and Julliette I actually thought the design was cool and absurdist. I use this for posts of random stuff. Though, come to think of it I should use it when I post about goings-on at the theatre, though I don't really wrtie about the theatre too much except in passing, really.

AHHH! It's Mir yelling. (circa 2006 or 2007 probably). This is one of my three icons of me. I took the pic in my room when I was trashed. I use it if something exciting is happening or if I'm responding to somene's post of something exciting. More often I respond in all caps "CONGRATS!" so it looks like I'm yealling said comment.

"There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling!" He he. I just think this one is silly and appropriate for LJ since LJ can be used as "woe as me" type of therapy. Plus I was looking at my icons and I realised I didn't have anything from the Simpsons which has been the show I've grown up with and adore. I don't use this icon enough.

Moss from The IT Crowd. I like alliteration, especially alliterations involving animals (see username). I just think it's cute, I use it when I'm excited. Though in the context of the show when the line is used he's basically calling himself an idiot.

This is my default, Kasmir Melvitch's Black Square.  This painting has a special place in my heart (and tattooed on to the back of my neck, for that matter). When I was in Paris taking a class on the rise of modern art I saw a lot of amazing paitings. My first full day in town we went to the Louvre and saw a bunch of famous paintings, many trying to be as relisitic as possible. We spent two days at the Orsay Museum and saw the rise of impressionism. Then we finally got to the Pomipdu and this painting stuck me. Art had to go through all those periods and phases to end up, at one point, with something bare-bones and basic, a black square with a white frame on a block of wood. I loved it. Kept going back to look at it before I left. I guess I love the minimalism of it.

Good idea!

Pick me, Mir. This could be fun, depending upon which icons you choose.
