nico icon

i am spending WAAAAAAY too much time designing new icons. i'm seriously considering PAYing for my livejournal account, just so i can have more eye candy. plus, i think it's totally worth it, since i'll probably make all kinds of polls, being the ever curious busy body. chuckvideo (lucky duck chuck) was an early adopter, therefore doesn't pay for his, and he gets like 50 icons.

so, do you think this image says:

i'm a misunderstood artist
i'm uncomfortably constipated
i think i just stepped in some gum
or all of the above.

all of the above! but it's a neat icon.
early adopters don't get polls. so i'm an early adopter that pays.
and i basically pay just for the polls.

woop. i didn't realize ea's couldn't do polls. i'm still a little green in the knees..i do think the polls would be fun, though. now, if i could just incorporate the findings into a captivating and ground breaking art installation.. wheels are a turnin.

so, how's the song writing coming along?

haha, well, my midi keyboard is now attached to my laptop.
i'm super scared to make a real attempt, though.

I had to re-read that three times to make sure you weren't saying, "I think I just stepped in some gumby!" :) But when it comes to icons, I have one golden rule: the more skin you show, the better! So I'd say that's a great icon! :o)

Re: Well...
glad you like the icon..gotta love the photo shop. you wouldn't know it, but i actually have 3 nostrils and a full grown beard.

oooooooh i see, stepping on gumby..you're goin' fer the dominatrix angle. hmm. didn't really intend on the skin, as the inclination to document my new colored hairs was the main objective, but hey, skin does sell. as does violence, obscene language, and the occasional reference to genome duplication, none of which i'm willing to muster at the moment..

All of the above. But sometimes it's nice for icons to have multiple meanings, especially with the limits on quantity.

This icon here is supposed to convey my broken glasses (an old pair that fell apart), but it didn't really translate well.
I just had a friend buy me a full year paid account. That was rocking.
Feb. 11th, 2005 01:46 am (UTC)
i LOVE that icon..it's like 'what's wrong with this picture?' you definitely don't notice it at first..but, that's why i like it. yeah, i'd say they were broken alright, missing an entire bow and all. it's not like you could tape 'em up for that "beggin' for an ass whoopin' look." and say, are those one of your dad's old frames?
Feb. 11th, 2005 02:08 am (UTC)
Not a pair from my dad. They were my first pair, straight from a legit eyeglass factory. The bow part is hanging off my ear, though it kind of blends with the curve of my face. and the left lens is taped onto a cracked open frame. I had to use them like that for a few weeks until I got a new pair. it was painful, yes, but not in an ass-kicked way.
Feb. 11th, 2005 02:12 am (UTC)
i thought those were chops! the dangling bow! if it'd been a different color that your hair, i might've caught it. again, the power of photo shop will set you free..

i've been meaning to ask..

is that YOU bowling that steee-rike?

i had a salmon colored bowling ball as a kid (no, not ORANGE, like so many kids liked to point out)

haven't bowled in years, though, but i sure fancy the idear.
Feb. 11th, 2005 02:46 am (UTC)
Heck yeah that's me. It's from a sci-fi/western themed bowling alley in santa maria. I love bowling - though I don't do it as much as I'd like.

And yeah, I should probably 'shop that shit (the other photo).

And here, finally, is a wonderful shot I took from a nintendo game called Ice Climber.
Feb. 11th, 2005 05:38 am (UTC)
that's IT!
you've inspired me to pay for my account.
you have the COOLest ICONS!

got any pacmans?
Feb. 11th, 2005 08:27 am (UTC)
my affinity lies with nintendo
Nay. I c'not be bothered with pacman.
Feb. 11th, 2005 11:44 am (UTC)
Re: my affinity lies with nintendo
aw. not into pacman???
that's like saying you don't like apple pie, baseball or 'the simpsons!'

on a completely different note, i think i've noticed an increase in the usage of 'like' in my recent posts. could i be experiencing what is known as reverse lent osmosis?

Re: my affinity lies with nintendo
Yeah, you did change your interpretation of my response from "not into" to "not the-word-that-cannot-be-spoken"

I just simply get bored with pac-man fairly fast. Nintendo games hold my interest a lot longer. Plus, I'd rather have some obscure nintendo game icon than one that everyone immediately gets and could easily copy. Ice Climber has 30 levels, and they all sort of look different. Pacman all looks the same to me. See? they are totally unique. okay maybe not

I'd say there's a good chance you're experiencing reverse lent osmosis. But at least it's kinda purified.

"mommy why won't the other girls play with me??"
Feb. 11th, 2005 05:28 am (UTC)

i was waiting for someone to add a caption.
and wouldn't ya know it..it's more true than you'll ever know.

I love chatting to BABEZ online, and constructing time machines, you should come take a ride some time!
Feb. 14th, 2005 04:27 pm (UTC)
so, where on earth would you buy the parts for such a machine? your local hardware store? and if one of these parts gets discontinued, rendering your machine useless, you can't go back in time to retrieve the necessary gasket/spindle/hoop? i'm not even gonna THINK about warranties..
Feb. 11th, 2005 03:17 am (UTC)
you are so HOT!
Feb. 11th, 2005 05:33 am (UTC)
oh, no no. you mistake me for someone who possesses hotness, when in actuality i'm as pale as a baby's bottom and sport a world class unibrow. it's smoke & mirrors, really.

your icon, i must say, gives me an ear to ear grin every time i see it!
Feb. 11th, 2005 08:02 am (UTC)
Either the first or the 3rd, but not the middle one! ha ha

Aww you took away the cutest one though!!! Do you only get 3? I wish I could give you some of mine. I'll never everrr use up 50! :)
Feb. 11th, 2005 09:47 am (UTC)
aw, thanks for the donation..i'll take you up on it if we can convince the proper authori-tays. oh, i could use 100's of icons! i think i'll only get 15 if i pay. cruel and unusual punishment, if ya ask me..
Feb. 11th, 2005 09:56 am (UTC)
I know, I was an early adopter but then about 3 years ago, I forked over the 100 bucks to be permanent! :)

And I just realized, I've used up 30 icons!
Feb. 11th, 2005 11:38 am (UTC)
oh meeeyan. you can be permanent? hm. that might be worth the investment..

you've got icons to burn BABY! brag, brag, brag..
Feb. 11th, 2005 07:02 pm (UTC)
Well Brad offers it once in a while.. when he does, a LOT of people jump on it. I'm not sure when he'll ask next but keep an eye out! ;)

Poor Becky, I have so many to give but don't have the means. he he
