icon meme  
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick four 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 squee!!

Okay, so  silvercobwebspicked this quartet:

   My 2000AD icon. I read 2000AD every week, so I wanted an icon. This is the old logo the comic had in the early days (late 70s early 80s). Thrill power overload is a term Squaxx (that's 2000AD readers) use to express joy over how wonderful a story is, so it seemed like a good way to make the icon multipurpose cos I can use it to tell people how great I think their fic is.

 The bear is from Spaced, it's the comic book character designed by Simon Pegg's character, Tim. It also seemed like a really great icon for when I'm really p***ed off about something.

2000AD again this one, Finigan Sinister and Ramone Dexter are my favourite characters - a pair of hitmen for hire or "gunsharks" in a dystopian future Eastern European city named Downlode. Plus Sinister is latin for left, Dexter means right, so it's kinda a joke for classicists too. *grin*

 Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Velvet Goldmine, just sex on a stick for me. The font struck me as incredibly Glam Rock (glitter rock for our American cousins) so it was perfect. The line reads "The world has changed because you are made of ivory and gold" which is what Ewan McGregor's character says to him just before they kiss and in this shot I think ivory and gold describes him perfectly.

I think because I knew what the picture was, I'd never even noticed how dark it was! So thanks for pointing it out and I hope this is better *points right*
