LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [livejournal.com profile] library_of_sex)

After two months on hiatus, I got back to banging around on PS last week, and good fucking grief, it was an uphill battle bringing this batch to fruition! This is mainly due to the fact that I was dumb enough to challenge myself to use all the words and textures provided in the inspiration post (focused on the four elements: air, earth, fire, and water), which actually hindered a lot of my creativity. I gave up on the texture portion of the challenge after utilizing half of them cuz the process just felt like such a drag when I was forcing myself to work with things that weren't fitting in organically. It didn't help that PS was being so damn impossible and wouldn't open on my computer despite repeated reboots and plenty of enraged howls and relentless cursing. (I almost threw my library book across the room in frustration, but somehow managed to refrain from doing it.) Anyway, I did manage to shape every icon upon one of the inspiration words (some far more loosely than others), so the idea wasn't a complete bust. There are a handful of pieces that I truly love right now, and there are also definitely a few that make me shake my head in regret, but I was running very low on free time as well as battling a non-responsive technological dinosaur, so I'm glad I finished this insane task at all. Besides, there's always stuff I love and hate in every single post, so I suppose this is really just the norm for me. Here's hoping you enjoy these many icons of the latest Man of Steal My Heart Steel, also known to most lowly mortals as Henry Cavill!

I hereby dedicate this post to the obscenely talented [livejournal.com profile] neversleeps. Mikell, laughing with you about male celebs in our conversations at [livejournal.com profile] ghostspoons brightened up gloomy days at work this year, and if I weren't too lazy to check out LJ more often, I would totally pester you all the time for more hilarious chitchat! Can you please stop producing icons though? I need one less maker to envy, and your coloring and text work have been making me weep bitterly for years. Please and thank you.

Let's keep it real, this is far from my best work, so any feedback or constructive criticism is tremendously useful and certainly appreciated. I have a knack for obscuring subjects to the point where they're difficult to make out or comprehend, which sounds senseless to most normal people, but I gravitate toward it like a moth to a flame. (Only did it once or twice here though...I think.)Feel free to ask me what the hell is going on in any of these icons if you can't make heads or tails of it! :P

NOTE: When you snag something, please credit me and the comm, so people won't friend my personal journal when they're merely searching for my graphics. Many thanks!

Henry Cavill

I've never seen the video but I saw my friends post a video of this on their Facebook walls. They go to Penn State at the main campus and apparently there was a massive snow day (we're talking about 3.5 to 4 feet) but they still had to go to school, so apparently "Hitler" was angry about that.

I feel bad for finding the second video funny, but it really is.

It's from Inglorious Basterds. I've seen people use it for anything and everything fandom related.

it's from Der Untergang actually.

really? lol. Oops, my mistake. Clearly I need to rewatch IB again, shame on me.

From: [identity profile] realproof.livejournal.com
lol, it's ok. But it's clearly Bruno Ganz playing Hitler, and also if i remember IB correctly they were never in the bunker?

You know what, I can't even remember ... I don't think so, it wouldn't fit in IB's storyline.

From: [identity profile] library-of-sex.livejournal.com
I thought that might be from IB, but the coloring looked so washed out that I figured it might be a much older film.

yeah, that's been around for years. ;)

my fav was, when some of them got taken down and then there was one detailing it being taken down and explaining how remix-ing/fanvids work.

I didn't know whether it was appropriate to laugh while watching the second vid (didn't bother with the first) cuz it's Hitler of all people. But I couldn't help laughing. He's ranting, and it's supposedly about something so petty and inconsequential!

there was one about Supernatural once. Gosh I LAUGHED SO HARD AT IT.

I'm glad I wasn't alone in finding one of those vids funny. I felt ashamed of myself, but the second vid I posted really cracked me up. Probably cuz he sums up everything that I've thought about my fave couple on Gossip Girl. :P

From: [identity profile] justmyb0nes.livejournal.com
I felt bad laughing at it too.
I tried to find the vid back (I posted it on my LJ a long time ago) butt he video was deleted from YT :(

I was afraid to even post those vids here cuz I didn't wanna upset anyone!

From: [identity profile] salinax.livejournal.com
yep I've seen loads of them around, for me it kind of got old after the first one already though…
especially since I understand every word they're actually saying and all the nazi-talk is pretty difficult to block out. ;)

I'm always so late on video phemonenons!

Yeah, I can see how that would totally ruin the intended humor. I felt bad laughing cuz it's supposed to be Hitler, but the actor is so loud and crazy, and the fact that he's allegedly pissed about one of my fave TV pairings just cracked me up.

It's the first time I see it. But then again, I haven't been around LJ much the past few days -- which yes, I keep intending to change.

Apparently, people have been posting those vids for years, Laura! I'd never heard of it until yesterday night!

WHAT IS THIS EVEN?
It's hard for me to find it really funny, because I understand what they are saying in german and then it's hard to concentrate on the subtitles, but I couldn't help but to snicker a little at a few subtitles.
But really WHAT IS THIS? LOL.

Date: 2011-04-23 11:43 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] library-of-sex.livejournal.com
Yeah, I can imagine it's too weird to laugh at when you can hear the real rant going on in the film. I felt bad laughing so much cuz it's HITLER of all people, but the subtitles are so ridiculous!

Date: 2011-04-24 07:59 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] appleindecay.livejournal.com
Oh god, there are so many Hitler-jokes I find so funny and yeah, I definetly feel bad about that too (especially being german and all that). But then again, really as long as we're making fun of him and not his victims it's all good in my opinion.

Date: 2011-04-24 10:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] library-of-sex.livejournal.com
Very true! it's not like anyone's laughing cuz tey think Hitler's cool or anything. I can totally see why those vids and jokes might bother other people, but they make me laugh so hard!

Date: 2011-04-26 04:23 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] appleindecay.livejournal.com
Exactly. It's more laughing at/about him than with him.
Yes, I can definetly understand that not everybody is fine with this - but I think we have right to laugh at/about this/him. As I said, as long as the puns are not at the expense of the victims it's okay (and I'm gonna admit, I knoww joke or two where this is not the case and I still can't help laughing - but I'm so ashamed of it, so I guess as long as there's shame there's a conscious, right? xD)

I've seen a few ones, I laughed my ass off most of the time. :P

I can't believe I'm barely seeing those for the first time!

I think I saw one about Bones before.

I'm kind of torn between finding it amusing and being offended. Usually I'm very good at having a sense of humor but I find it difficult when it's Hitler related.

Date: 2011-04-23 11:43 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] library-of-sex.livejournal.com
Yeah, I'm surprised I haven't heard about those before cuz I'd think there'd be an uproar about them!
