Icon meme, from marymont

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 squee.

The toga'd Pooh is the cover art from Winnie ille Pu Semper Ludet (literally: Winnie the Pooh Always Plays"), the Latin translation of House at Pooh Corner. Malum is the editor's translation of Pooh's ubiquitous lament, "Bother."

This is artwork from one of Don Hertzfeldt's best-known animations, Academy Award-nominated "Rejected," which shows fictitious advertisements Hertsfeldt created for the "Family Learning Channel" and "Johnson & Mills," all of which were, as the name suggests, rejected by the companies. Like many of his pieces, "Rejected" Is both surreal and self-aware. This frame shows the characters trying to break through the fourth wall as the animation implodes around them. I have two other icons from the film.

This is an icon I made. The quote is from "Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog," written in Middle English in the assumed guise of the eponymous poet.

I found this icon while running around Livejournal. I was impressed not only by the non-sequitur humor, but also by the sheer length of the animation.

Another icon I made. The quote is my own, and I use it sparingly when I have a particularly strong, though not necessarily popular, point of view.
