Icon glee!

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.

[livejournal.com profile] renough, a friend I met in college, made me this one at my request. This is the bard from Final Fantasy IV, my favorite in the series. I use this for musically related posts or if I'm in a musical mood.

[livejournal.com profile] renough also made this one. This is my standard political icon, although it's used a bit facetiously as I do believe your vote counts. But sometimes it doesn't seem that way with all of the backroom dealing in Washington.

I play the card game Magic: The Gathering and Black Lotus is the most expensive card ever. It's from the very first set, Alpha, and it does something completely bonkers even back then. I use it when conversing about MTG.

I'm really good at foosball. Like, I got so good that I could beat my friends just using one hand. I rarely use this one, and if I do it'd be about a sports related post.

I found this image on Cute Overload and modified it specifically for this post I made about a hedgehog's dilemma. Mostly used when I think someone should look in the mirror.

[livejournal.com profile] renough made this one as well. I'm a big fan of the Japanese version of Iron Chef (Iron Chef America is only okay IMHO), and I'm a big fan of Mario. I've always thought that Metal Mario from Mario 64 would make a great Iron Chef, so I made him the Supreme Iron Chef. I use this icon mostly for cooking related posts, but sometimes I'll use it in a introductory comment since it is so awesome.

I actually explained most of this one in the previous post, but to further expound I chose to use the White House as the background since it is the symbol of America's power. Also, (cue up some NBC music) did you know that using the White House to symbolize the Executive Branch is an example of a figure of speech known as metonymy?

This is the card Blind Seer from Magic: The Gathering. He's not that powerful of a card, although he was very useful during Invasion Limited. He's secretly Urza in disguise. I use this icon when I make some sort of prediction, like the prophet Tiresias from Oedipus Rex.

One day I challenged some people to make some "D2" LJ icons and I got two nice ones. Ironically, both of the people who made those icons are no longer LJ friends with me, but I figure there's no reason to delete good work just because of some LJ drama (I was a much more acrimonious person in my younger LJ days). I use this one intermittently with my other D2 icons when I have no particular icon for a post and don't want to use my default.

I made a set of avatars from the character creator of Gaia Online. I thought of Angels/Demons, or Angemons as I call them (I probably got it from a game, I can't remember which one at the current time). This one is the "benevolent dictator" icon, and it's often used when I need to lay some smack down on my own journal. Oh, I haven't written any contentious posts yet but it'll come soon enough.
