Everyone's kinda grouchy today, eh? And I'm not saying that y'all have to be cheerful, just that my flist and twitterfeed all seem pretty hostile this morning. Is a good response to that to be cheerful or is that more angry-making?

Anyway, more icon meme! If you'd like me to pick six icons for you, go here. These pics are from [personal profile] alwayswondered:

So Ryan posted this twitpic of his view of the E! studio at the moment they all had to leave for a fire alarm and looking at what was on the TelePrompTer, I had to make it into an icon:



Feel free to use! All I did was crop the thing, so credit Ryan, really.

Ali says I made her create this meme, but that's not true. It was merely a suggestion. However, since it was my suggestion, I am honor-bound to fill it out myself! I only picked ships that I have more than one icon for, or otherwise it's not really a favorite, is it?

THE MEME: Pick your favorite icon for each of your ships, then fess up as to what you're doing on that boat in the first place.

icon meme the second! )

Hmm, I feel like I've sort of said the same thing about all these ships: they're adorable, they make sense, they spark, etc. And a lot of the ships that I have more than one icon of, or even have an icon of, often it's because I've written them and want icons to put with the fic. There's tons of things I actually ship but don't have icons for because I'm not sure when I'd use them. So this is a topsy-turvy list!

icon meme!

You guys? I have never been able to fill up the icons but I am just one icon away—or really, I AM full once I upload one of these beauties.

I posted this week about having this nice icon of Simon whispering in Ryan's ear and wanting the opposite. So the excellent [livejournal.com profile] consumedbywords sent me screencaps of Ryan whispering in Simon's ear the other week, and I have made three icons of it because I can't quite decide which crop I like best. Like all decisions I cannot make, I'm doing a poll! Also, anything you'd like to say in the comments would be helpful.

1. That off-center look that all the kids are doing. I kind of like the random light you can see in the opposite corner, too. Con: it looks a little like a manip, though it totally isn't!




2. Super close up! I like this because for me this pic is really about how their hair is almost touching. Con: The same manip problem, and the image might be a little blurry—maybe the crop should be a little looser?




3. Traditional look. Probably what I would have done without thinking. Ryan looks less like he might have been thunked in from some other picture, and you get more of Simon's chest which, you know, isn't all bad.




[Poll #1173843]

Yay icons!

We all have different ways in which we contribute to this LJ thing, or the thing we call fandom, or whathaveyou. Mostly, I write fic. I also post the occasional meta, and for Idol, I do a big damn recap with a poll that's fun to vote in, and y'all come around and chat in the comments and it's great.

But what's even more fun is that other people do other things that I can't do very well, like make icons, or videos, or draw pictures, or find photos and sound clips and footage and screen caps. So when [livejournal.com profile] bhanesidhe introduced me to the awesome that is the Big Damn Quiz Show, in order to show me the Goth Detectives, she didn't expect me to fall in huge crush with David Mitchell, but, um, I kinda did, and being who she is, she facilitated by finding me much icon joy. And then on top of THAT, [livejournal.com profile] dollsome made some new Rymon icons which are full of yay, because I need many for my fic posting needs. Being perverse, I shall use a Seamus/Dean icon.

By the way, does anyone know where to get hi-res caps of AI? Because that moment when Ryan is whispering in Simon's ear in the first episode of the finals? Need that.
jlh: Chibi of me in an apron with a cocktail glass and shaker. (Ryan and Simon in love)
So I made these icons and I'm pleased because I figured out how to make little squares on them for text because OMG I'm a total photoshop newbie. The icon on this post was made by [livejournal.com profile] dollsome and is pretty sweet; she's also my source for most of these photos and caps.



He's on Larry King, obviously.



The first one is another cap from last week's results show, the second one from an appearance on the Tonight Show last spring, the third from a red carpet, and the last two are from the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. I may change the text box on that last icon (the quote is from a Police song) to a bubbly thing or something, but the picture looked a little bare (as you can see, I generally don't put words on my icons) and I also wanted to cover Simon's omnipresent nipples because enough already. I love that red carpet photo because they look like a red carpet couple, don't they? I'm pleased that now I have like, a billion Rymon icons.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aome for reminding me that I could post them in my scrapbook!

Two icon sort-of requests:

One, where should I look to get a Cameron icon from Ferris Bueller? He's one of my top fictional crushes and I feel I should have an icon. Even better, are there screen caps someplace anyone knows of?

Two, can someone show me how to make a flashing icon? I have three little pictures that I want to put into one rotating icon. I know you animate in Image Ready but I don't know how.

I made chocolate fudge sauce and sticky toffee sauce this weekend. Much like the cookies and mint in my favorite Cuties, the sauces make vanilla tofutti edible, and since I'm only eating the ice cream as an excuse to eat the sauce, having a bad lactose-induced tummyache doesn't seem worth it.

Next post in this spam-o-rama: Golden Globes! Top Chef! Movies!
