Comment on this post if you want to participate. I'll choose seven (or at least some) userpics from your profile and you'll reply here, explaining what they mean and why you're using them. If you wish, post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.
Sometime back when i first started up my LJ account one of my friends offered to make me some icons, and this, plus the other ones featuring Ran from "Green Legend Ran" are what they came up with. I've stuck with it because it looks a little bit like me (well, i've got long darkish hair anyways, though without the mullet) and i don't really want to use a real picture. Unfortunately i don't remember who it was that came up with the icons by this point =/
I made this when i was being kinda mopey and emo-ey after getting dumped by my last serious SO. I started using it as my default posting icon and it kind of turned into a pointless habit :)
I was posting some stuff about Talk Like A Pirate Day and decided i should make an icon for it. A normal pirate icon seemed kind of passe though, so i decided i should get a pirate kitty icon since i generally associate with cats. I looked through google images for a bit and found a sticker or something that seemed pretty close to what i wanted and stole it and cleaned it up a little :)
I'm not sure which came first, the Samus/Metroid icon or the Mario icon, but i wanted a couple video game icons for posting about video game stuff. I've always been a fan of the NES/SNES era, and i figured NES characters would adapt to 100x100 icons pretty well :)
Chaos! This was an attempt to recreate the chaos symbol, though i think i may have made the diagonal arms a little too small. I wonder if there's any official rules on how to draw it? That would seem kinda contradictory :) In any case, i use it for talking about chaotic stuff, when i remember anyways.
This is my Rush icon! Rush is my canonical favorite band. They don't have a specific symbol, but the pentagram-like thing is from the cover of one of their more famous albums, 2112.
OMG Pink Ponies!!1!one! I was posting something about/on April Fool's Day and decided i needed a silly icon, so i decided to put something together based on the Slashdot April Fools joke from a year or two back. They said that their market research had indicated they needed to appeal to a younger, female demographic, so they had changed the theme of their website to "OMG Ponies!" :)
