hey, lovely members. :)

i take specific requests on most of my posts, but i also wanted to have an "ongoing requests" post for more general ideas. if there's something you want to see in an upcoming post, this is the place to ask. specifically, i'm looking for:

- fandoms -> book, movie, tv, etc. don't worry if i'm not already into it-- i'm easily obsessed. ;)

- musicians -> for lyric icons. what do you love?

- anything else you want to see icon'd!

you all are wonderful.

much love,

indecentexposed

Requests

I've got a few ideas for icons (I'm addicted to icons but I'm terrible at making them!) Right now I like looking for text/quote icons so here's a few ideas:

Music: Regina Spektor, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (specifically their song, Your Guardian Angel), Hanson, The Blow (specifically their song, Parenthesis), Natasha Bedingfield

TV/Book/Movie: Little Miss Sunshine, Dr. Seuss, Lemony Snicket, The Office, Monty Python

And just quotes from famous people or silly sayings

Re: Requests

noted. :) there's definitely going to be a little miss sunshine set in the next post, & the others will be upcoming. i'm not as familiar with the office fandom, but everyone i know is obsessed with it, so i guess it's time to get on board. ;)

also, i <3 your taste in music!

If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to see some fandom icons from Roswell (tv show--I think you would like this show personally too) or consisting of Jason Behr and Shiri Appleby (or either or, and either from the show, their other movies/works, or whatever photoshoot they did). Currently, my favorite artist is One Republic and Sarah McLachlan. =]

Posted at: January 6th, 2008 02:28 pm (UTC)

my best friend is a roswell fanatic, so i'm going to steal the dvds from her & see what happens. :) i definitely love shiri appleby, & the show's premise looks interesting.

sarah mclachlan was one of my first musical obsessions, actually. i was a little on the fence with one republic, but then i heard "come home" on last week's gossip girl, & now i'm hooked. so, expect to see icons soon!

I really, really love purple, and I really really love llamas. Anything (together or separate) with those two things would make me very, very happy. :)

Btw, it is so good to see someone other than me use "icon" as a verb. Heh. Hey- THAT could be icon'd- "icon is a verb" or something.

Posted by: alyse (indecentexposed)
Posted at: January 6th, 2008 03:17 pm (UTC)

purple and llamas. i love it. i'll see what i can do. ;)

& yes, i am totally going to do an "icon as verb" icon, now that you said that!

How about some text from Eclipse? And since you're already into Joss Whedon... what about Buffy/Angel? Thanks!

Posted by: alyse (indecentexposed)
Posted at: January 6th, 2008 03:15 pm (UTC)

more twilight series icons are absolutely on the way-- as if there could ever be enough. ;) not that i'm an addict or anything...

whedonverse is actually a pretty new fandom for me, & i've actually never watched an episode of buffy or angel (if you can believe that!), but i'll give it a try. :) thanks for the suggestions!

First of all, I just wanted to say that I love this comm.! I was having a crappy day yesterday and when I came across this last night, it totally made my day :) And it looks like we like a lot of the same music/movies/tv shows, so that really makes me excited about your icons even more!

Anyway...
Most of all, I'd love to see some lyric icons from 3 Doors Down. Any songs. There are never enough!
Other musicians I'd be interested in are Matt Nathanson, Matchbox 20/Rob Thomas, Joshua Radin, The Weepies, Hem.

As for movies: Garden State, Fight Club, the Bourne trilogy, Flight of the Navigator, Hitch...

That's all I can think of for now :)

Posted by: alyse (indecentexposed)
Posted at: January 6th, 2008 02:32 pm (UTC)

i'm so glad you love the comm! it really means a lot to me to hear that-- & definitely keeps me making unreasonably large amounts of icons. ;)

three doors down was actually on my list already, as was matt nathanson, &.... omg, i love that you requested joshua radin & the weepies, both of whom i currently adore beyond words. i've been loving joshua radin since first between 3rd & 4th, & i'm so excited that he's finally starting to get the recognition he so completely deserves.

garden state is my favorite film of all time, & those icons are definitely in the works. i'll add the rest of the movies you mentioned to my list, too. thanks for commenting! :)

[FIREFLY] i heart kaylee

Well, my latest obsession has to be the TV series, Supernatural. It would probably delight me to death to find a few of them over here, as I love your iconning skills.

I particularly like the "I <3 So-and-So" icons you do, and it would be rad to see a batch of them for Supernatural.

If you know, it's cool with you. :P

Posted by: alyse (indecentexposed)
Posted at: January 9th, 2008 03:05 am (UTC)

i was actually planning on a supernatural batch for the next post. i'll make sure to include an "i <3" section. ;)

artistic_sillie_Sam_Dean_Hands_Heart

I'm a slash fan, so Captain Jack Harkness and Cpt John (James Marsters) icons would be great. Something slashy, if that's okay? Their scenes are from season 2 of Torchwood which hasn't aired yet, but some teasers have been released.

Anything with Stabler/Benson from SVU; Toby/Beecher from Oz; Sam/Dean and John from Supernatural; Scott/Logan from Xmen

Books: Hero by Perry Moore - the text "HERO" in different color letters?

Xfiles - Mulder and Scully from the Rolling Stone issue. I can get the links to the pics if you need them (yes, I'm going old school here *g*)

Lyrics: this is such an unusual category. I haven't seen much of it about. I would love anything from Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day; Fly Away & Are you going to go my way by Lenny Kravitz.

Also, I apologize for going overboard with this *blushes* Just anything from the above would be so great!

Posted at: January 9th, 2008 06:18 am (UTC)

don't apologize, i love suggestions! :) i'm adding all of these to my list. it may take a while, since i'm definitely more familiar with some than others (oh, elliot/olivia... *sigh*), but there will definitely be a supernatural set in the next batch, & green day is next on my list for lyrics. thanks for your input! :)

& regarding slash: i got into fandom in general on the slash boat-- one day, my brain popped out with, "wouldn't it be reallyreally amazing if orlando bloom & viggo mortensen were having really, really hot sex?" & it was all downhill (uphill? lol) from there. so, yes. slash is definitely okay. ;)

And you know what else would make my day? (now that I FINALLY noticed this?) Some Fray or Skillet or Relient K icons. They really would.

added to the list. :) also, did you catch the heroes quotes in the last post?

Posted by: Megan (delacoeur)
Posted at: January 22nd, 2008 10:16 pm (UTC)

Could you make an icon saying "I'm so lonely, but that don't mean that I'm stuck with you?" If it's too long, I totally understand. For you information, it's a line from a song called "Mirabelle" by Jay Nash.

Thanks!

Ah ha!
Brain on Twilight

A request box! What a great idea!

So, this is a fairly random icon I'd love for you to make with a very long story behind it.

On a black background, in silver-ish font:
SKILLET
Smokin' Bacon
Eggs
Crepes
Pancakes

And if you know how to put 'SKILLET' the way the band does it, I'll love you forever and practically worship you.

Um, that's it. If you get to this, I'd appreciate it!

caffiene

You need ideas? Say no more, I'm coming! (I have a billion and five ideas and a peice of crap computer that can't make icons...)

Well...more Grey's quotes would be amazing.
Twilight quotes are love, so...those too.

Something I don't think you've tried before: Switchfoot. Any lyrics from them would be fantabulous. My favorite songs are Awakening, Stars, Beautful Letdown, and Meant to Live, but I think Dirty Second Hands has some great iconable lyrics. Just ideas.

Ooo...and then I have this other idea. You don't have to icon this now, but if you get really bored, I'd love you forever if you'd make icons out of these quotes:

"Sea amable o los osos lo comerán" and "Be nice or the angry grizzlies will eat you. For real."

Hehe, I like threatening my peice of crap computer with the wrath of angry grizzlies.

So yeah. I can't wait to see what you come up with now and I'm so glad you're back!

~Kiowa

Wow, that's really long. Sorry.

Posted by: Kiowa (lonewolf82)
Posted at: March 16th, 2008 10:01 pm (UTC)

I take it back. I think you have a few vaguely Switchfoot related icons. But more would be wonderful ;)
