Also, this icon is appropriate.  
I was going to put together a West Memphis 3 linkroll this weekend, but I couldn't do a better job than cleolinda who put together a very comprehensive overview of the case here.  Also, if you've heard anything about the case, you've probably heard about the celebrity supporters like Johnny Depp and Eddie Vedder.  It wasn't until this weekend that we learned who paid for a huge amount of the private investigators, DNA testing, and other big-ticket fees related to the last ten years of concentrated effort to get these three men out of prison - Peter Jackson.  That's right.  When you went to see Return of the King for the third time, you were helping get these innocent men free.


To switch gears completely, an icon meme!



1. Reply to this post with "UNICORNS", 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.




naushika picked the following:



- It's Jayne from Firefly!  I love his "disguise."  Could he draw any more attention to himself? ♥

- The icon that lives in my heart November - March, aka college basketball season.

- HAHAHA I love this icon.  I saved it years ago from Fandom Wank, have no idea who made it.

- It's Tron!  I cropped a publicity still, nothing fancy.  I didn't even do the texture.  *pets BB BB*

- Lord, this set of icons.  I made them from the Babylon 5 S3 opening credits, which meant I had to clone stamp off everyone's names from their faces.  Luckily Mira's name was just on her hair, so that was easy.



ghanimasun chose:



- Picard!  This isn't a publicity still; he just looks that heroic.

- The Stupendous Yappi!  From one of the greatest episodes of TV ever, "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose."  Scully's faaaace.

- Shoshanna!  Inglourious Basterds 4evr.

- John Sheridan!  Looking v. noble and handsome.  *pets BB BB*

- I forget his character's name!  From Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, with Richard Ayoade and Matt Berry.  If you like absurdist British comedy, you have to watch this show.  (I think it's all up on YouTube.)



ETA: Is anyone else having problems with the new rich text editor?  I've had to edit this entry like a bazillion times, it keeps switching the usernames I have linked, and one time it just erased half the entry.  I am not pleased.

The Great Yappi! Hee! I love Scully's face.

You made me worry that I got his name wrong, so I googled it, and it turns out we were both wrong - it's The Stupendous Yappi. I mean, of course.

Scully's face that whole episode.
enigmaticblues: mulder pencilsenigmaticblues on August 23rd, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC)
That episode really does have to be one of the best episodes of TV ever. I really want to go back and watch it again now. (And of course it's The Stupendous Yappi. How could I forget?)

Oh, and I'm bored, so UNICORNS!!!

I'm a pretty unapologetic fan of all the funny episodes. And of course the Darin Morgan eps, too. As good as Clyde Bruckman is, my two tops are Bad Blood and The Post-Modern Prometheus.

Unicorns! :D

P.S. No more pwetty header?

Yeah, I wanted a different layout, and didn't like any of the ones with header spaces. I don't like most of the layouts, actually, but this was the best of the ones I'd tried out.



(I think that last one might be by prettypinkdork?)

Holly: Kara angelhollywobbles on August 24th, 2011 08:46 pm (UTC)
Awesomesauce -- thx for the tip on prettypinkdork.

Have you gone looking for layouts made by users? I have a couple sites I could recommend (if I can find the links).
Shannon: bsg opera housekungfuwaynewho on August 24th, 2011 09:03 pm (UTC)
I haven't! (I never have the energy to do LJ hunts.) If you have links off-hand, that would be cool, but no worries.

Here's what I have offhand:

http://estiloamor.livejournal.com/tag/layouts

http://refutare.livejournal.com/

Both feature mostly sort of simple/streamlined/sophisticated looking ones, since that's what I was looking for. I know the second site has instructions for how to install them, the first might somewhere too. I don't know how to install headers at all, so I don't know how to tell which layouts do or don't allow them, but I've seen at least 1 friend use a header with a layout ("Memorium") from the second site.

Awesome, thanks! I will check these out next time I get the chance. (Prob. this weekend.)

Is anyone else having problems with the new rich text editor?

Yeah, the new RTE has issues. :( LiveJournal developers know, and are presumably working furiously to fix the issues.

I hate it. I wish they never had to change things.

Livejournal in general is really slow for me today, not sure if that is my internets fault thoughXD

Another friend of mine had this meme up, so I can't wait to make an epic icon-loving post.

SCULLY WINS FOREVER.
