Ganked from spazzychic who ganked it from ganked from ellixis and aurora77

"I love looking at people's icons, but I don't always get them - I often wonder stuff like, 'Who's that guy?' or 'Where's that quote from?' but I tend not to ask, for various reasons. So come on, here are my icons. Pick one (or more!) you're curious about, and I'll try to explain it. Or at least explain what I like about it."

Gosh, who'd've thunk I would've participated in an icon meme? There's a shock.

A couple random questions:

1. How come you have all your icon info twice?

2. Is the "Bitter Ray" icon from something in particular or just a cool picture?

3. For some reason the "Need more Cheese" icon looks like it has 6 legs?

You are my icon guru.
Frittersfritters on March 4th, 2005 10:57 pm (UTC)
1. Mainly, because I had credited in keywords and didn't wanna go around deleting shit after I had put things in the comments as well. I wanted to add things to the comments as well as keywords because then you can just click on someone's name to see their page. I was just too lazy to remove them from keywords. I'm also not entirely sure which of the two makes credit show up on mouseover. I've seen it happen before, but I don't know which area causes it, so I'm leaving credit in both so that people are more likely to easily know who made what.

2. The Bitter Ray text is from the Dilbert/Douglas Adams newsletter. It's the slogan of it, I think. The picture is just a shot from gettyimages.com that I thought was particularly good for the text.

3. Huh. I never noticed that. Funky. It's the Cheese Rodent/Squid.

FYI, I'm done with the kitten versions, but not the sea versions.

Squid Cheese.

Cheese Rodent.

Squid Cheese Rodent.

The coming of the Apocolypse?

As for the icon, I can wait... semi patiently... *tap...tap...tap*

About one third done through the ocean ones. I never know what you want so I've got sooo many versions. How do you think I ended up making all those Andromeda icons?
Vocabulary/Back Scritches: choochoolovespazzychic on March 4th, 2005 11:36 pm (UTC)

Oh hun! Lol don't work TOO hard on it. I just need something to correctly channel my self-indulgent angst!

In other news, could you tell me about the "Full of crazy" icon? I LOVE IT SO MUCH... but I don't know anything else about it except that it's cool.
Fritters: Full of Crazy by aphchanfritters on March 4th, 2005 11:54 pm (UTC)
That's all I know, too. No idea the anime, no idea the phrase origin. I wish I knew more, I'd remake it so that the spacing was better and the graphic clearer....
Jensellandar on March 5th, 2005 04:08 am (UTC)

OMG Kawaii!

where's this from? I've friended you 'cause you rock, hope you don't mind...
Fritters: Ed Stars by Frittersfritters on March 5th, 2005 06:51 am (UTC)
I got the picture from a Russian photography site, actually, I made several with pictures I found from there. And no, I'm quite flattered that you've friended me, thank you very much!!

I have a free account, so I can only load three icons at a time. I change my default icon usually every month. FOr January I had Pizzazz of the Misfits, February was Dancing Banana month and for this month I have the little green guy from the "Hitch Hiker's Guide to The Galaxy" logo! I also have several different carousel-related icons I like to use from time to time!
Cherylccryder on March 5th, 2005 08:25 am (UTC)
I've seen you use your icons well, they always seem to represent a facial expression that matches your reply.

Basic question, do you have a favorite?

What's Skuld Dancin'?
Fritters: Skuld Dancin' by Frittersfritters on March 5th, 2005 08:39 am (UTC)
Dead on, I do try to match the emotion of the reply... And I have favoriteS but not one specific favorite. At the moment I have to say I'm pretty fond of my default, though.

Skuld is the youngest of three sisters who happen to be goddesses from the anime Ah Megamisama/Oh My Goddess. At the end credits of the anime she does the dance in that icon. There's some other stuff during the credits she does, as well, that's on my anime icons page. I generally use it when I'm really happy, alternating somewhat with my Ed Smiling Big icon.

That was more info than you asked for, wasn't it??
Cherylccryder on March 5th, 2005 04:42 pm (UTC)
Answered exactly!

I think she's really cute!
Frittersfritters on March 6th, 2005 06:59 am (UTC)
Have you seen any oh my goddess?
Cherylccryder on March 6th, 2005 08:13 pm (UTC)
No, sorry to say I haven't. It might be something too add to my "look for" list. Is there a website for them?
Fritters: Skuld Dancin' by Frittersfritters on March 7th, 2005 12:35 am (UTC)
Actually, at least for the moment, they're streaming the original series for free at animecrave.com....
Cherylccryder on March 9th, 2005 03:13 am (UTC)
Sorry for the delay, that'll be the perfect way to spend my morning tea tomorrow. Thanks! :D
Fritters: Pissed Off Lynx by Frittersfritters on March 9th, 2005 03:23 am (UTC)
The website is ephemeral because it's way popular, but if it's up, then yeah, a great way. I looooooooooooove the art in that series.
Fritters: Ed Devastated by Frittersfritters on March 9th, 2005 03:25 am (UTC)
ooops, wrong icon, not pissed, don't take it wrong!
Cherylccryder on March 9th, 2005 03:27 am (UTC)
Grrr.. it's not working, but I'm persistant!
Frittersfritters on March 9th, 2005 03:41 am (UTC)
Give it a few hours....
ancient_immie: Saraclaya: Roancient_immie on March 5th, 2005 01:55 pm (UTC)
must gack this mem...I must the pants command me! lol *sqees with happiness* Another Zim Fan....yet antoher unexpected reason that I find myself glad that I friending you for...but I do have this question...what is with the Happy Meg w/Kurt...I'm curious about it.
Fritters: Happy Meg w/Kurt by Frittersfritters on March 5th, 2005 08:00 pm (UTC)
You know X-Men, right? So you know Kurt/Nightcrawler? And that's Meggan, from Excalibur, the ORIGINAL GOOD EXCALIBUR. They were teammates in it and they were really close but never got together cause she had a shitty alcoholic boyfriend, who she MARRIED, but I always associated with her and wanted them to get together. So when I'm posting in X related groups or subjects, I frequently use that since it's a nice shot of the two of them happy together, like they OUGHT to be. As it is, I photoshopped out her boyfriends thigh ^_^
Amber: A Girl In Gaia by crazylittlemekohaku_san on March 9th, 2005 07:51 pm (UTC)
I don't have any questions about your user pics, but I was wondering if I could use one of the icons you made on GreatestJournal. It's the arranged flowers--Zen collection one. I promise to credit! If you say no then I won't use it.
Fritters: Ed Confused by Frittersfritters on March 9th, 2005 09:14 pm (UTC)
Erm...which is that? I've never released any of mine to GJ, although I do have an account. And any on my real icon page are up for grabs to those who credit. Did you mean one of these?

Amberkohaku_san on March 9th, 2005 09:21 pm (UTC)
The first one. Can I use it? Please? I swear I'll credit--you've seen my user pics page so you know I'll make good on that promise.
Frittersfritters on March 9th, 2005 09:23 pm (UTC)
Absolutely, hon, that's why I made it ^_^
Amber: Kitty Chiyo-chan by mintteakohaku_san on March 10th, 2005 01:26 am (UTC)
YAY! Thank you!
