tagged me awhile back with one of the icon memes, and I nearly forgot about it until now. So, without further ado:
Working from left to right:
1. That's Mike Cutter from "Law & Order", played by the delicious Linus Roache. He came on as the ADA in the 18th season, and the also delicious Jack McCoy [see entry icon], was promoted up to District Attorney [finally!]. Mike Cutter is known for many things: brilliant lawyering, slightly iffy calls on search warrants, and his incredibly hot bod. The costuming department [which, I suspect, is made up of fangirls] decided the best way to make Mike Cutter look lawyerly and important was to put him in very nice suits and TIGHT WHITE SHIRTS. In fact, I am such a fan of the TWS!, that it has its own tag
. You're welcome.
2. Back in 2005, NBC and CBS both had shows about alien invasions. I watched "Threshold", the CBS version, because while NBC had William Fitchner, Both Brent Spiner and Peter Dinklage were on "Threshold" [also, I liked the show]. I'd never had a crush on Data as a kid, but Spiner on "Threshold"? As a mouthy little shit? Oh, my, yes. And while he was not actually saying those words in that scene, I'm still fairly certain he was thinking them.
3. HAMSTER! I'm a devotee of "Top Gear", because I desperately want to be paid to drive like an asshole and make fun of cars. The show routinely does specials where they go to other countries, and this particular shot is Richard Hammond [wee little man] in Africa, getting his 1000 euro car to work after it had to go through a river. The especially important thing to know is that the Hamster named his car
, which is a complete no-no on TG, and then loved his car so much, he had it shipped to Britain
after filming. The car's name, by the by, is Oliver, and it's a 1964 Opal Cadet, and my iPod is named after it.
Also, I had no victory arms icon, and Hamster is adorable.
4. If you didn't ever see A&E's run of "Nero Wolfe" in 2002, you are sorely missing out. The sets are amazing, the costumes are drop-dead gorgeous, and the acting and writing were superb. Timothy Hutton played the long-suffering Archie Goodwin and one of Archie's standard responses to Wolfe being an idiot or anyone else being an idiot was to yell, "Nuts!". While I have a couple of icons that have swearing to explain my anger, there are times when all you want to do is yell, "Nuts!", and thus, Archie.
5. This is Peter Dinklage, on "Threshold", leaning against some boobs. Do I need to explain further?
6. I'm a comic book nerd. I love Iron Man and Captain America. I spend a lot of time grinding my teeth nowadays because Tony [Iron Man] is not actually at fault for the Superhero Civil War, Steve's death, or the Skrull Invasion. Lots of people like to blame him [Thanks, Mark Millar, for setting that up, and blow me, Slott, for encouraging it. Oh, and Bendis! For shame!], but I still love Tony, and I still love Steve [Captain America until his death], and I do ship them. I like this shot especially because it's early in the run of "New Avengers" and they're very happy. Also, the way they're standing, it looks like they're holding hands, and I always kinda hope they are. Because I am a sap.
So, a trip into my psyche. Fun?
