noughties spam part 1: icons  
So to celebrate the new decade, I've decided to make a picspam of all of the best things from 2000-2009 (otherwise known as the 'noughties' for those unaware). Although it's pretty much a rundown of the best things of all time because lets face it nothing all that great happened before January 1st 2000 ;)
Unfortunately the post would be so big I'm worried it would break livejournal if I posted it all at once so instead I'm going to release it in eleven amazing installments. This brings us to...

just ask if you want to know who made any of them, I'm leaving out the credits to make it more seamless (and I don't think I have the mental stability to go back and credit every single one :P)

part #2: wallpapers
part #3.1: photographers
part #3.2: photographers
part #3.3: photographers
part #4: movies
part #5: tv episodes
part #6.1: models
part #6.2: models
part #6.3: models
part #6.4: models
part #6.5: models
part #6.6: models
part #6.7: models
part #6.8: models
part #6.9: models

I love this post. A lot.
Joshblueymcphluey on January 29th, 2010 04:45 pm (UTC)
ugh, I know. I pretty much want to make love to it
Annashoqolad on January 29th, 2010 05:14 pm (UTC)
I want to marry it. IDK, I guess I'll keep coming back to this to look at these icons, because there's no way I can really appreciate every single one of them at the same time. But I guess that's okay considering they represent a whole decade of icon making...
Dana: Merlin > Oooooohletsey_x on January 29th, 2010 04:36 pm (UTC)
ELEVEN installments?! Can't wait to see what the other 10 are! (well, I know one will be gifs)

It seems some of these icons got The Curse of Photobucket jpg's :(.

I love this kind of icon recs, because it allows you to post some less-know makers' icons that you may never see in "regular" praise posts. And you get all kinds of styles, which is always fun.

I find the icons you picked made by me very interesting (and how many?! WTF), because there's only 4 or 5 of those I still consider good myself :d

...would you terribly mind if I kind of steal this idea from you?
Joshblueymcphluey on January 29th, 2010 04:56 pm (UTC)
I'm planning to do one a day for the next 10 days, but I've still got quite a bit of work left to do so we'll see :P

aw no! But I don't see it at all... why must people still insist on saving their graphics as .jpgs? .pngs are where it's at! ;)

yeah, absolutely! I love how the styles vary SO much yet they all pretty much equally excellent :D

I think you were a vital part of iconmaking this decade! A list without lots of your icons would be blasphamy. I miss the good old days when everything wasn't so red and saturated, to be honest

yeah, sure, go ahead! :D

So much pretty in one place! I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO LOOK.

Holy crap these are beautiful! It's like an icongasm lol Also, can I just say how freaking excited I am to see the rest of these lists! YAY!

To be honest I'd like to just replace all of my userpics with these, regardless of whether or not I know the fandom. I am especially curious who made this one
Josh: dexterblueymcphluey on January 29th, 2010 11:33 pm (UTC)
I'll try not to disappoint ;) the other parts are significantly less icongasmic but still oh so awesome

that was made by navras_rheya :D

So basically... this post is amazing? There are some serious 'classics' in this bad boy. :P

Just wondering, who made this one?
Joshblueymcphluey on January 30th, 2010 11:04 am (UTC)
so you wouldn't have a problem with me posting this to iconwhoa then I take it? :P

navras_rheya and hehe, that's the same one gigglemonster asked about. Does that make it the best icon ever or just the least known one? :P
katemotorized on January 30th, 2010 11:08 am (UTC)
Ohh no no, post away!

A bit of both? :P Seriously, LoTS needs some good icons, stat.

Thank you!

_paula_: G // :O_puchula_ on January 31st, 2010 12:48 pm (UTC)
Woah! I think I could stare at this post for hours... I seriously want to download every single one of them, even the ones from fandoms I don't watch. Thanks for putting this together, it's a great selection of icons. :D

:D no problem! the love needed to be spread ;)

zoicite :)
Sarah!: [GG] Awhat?killmotion on January 31st, 2010 06:05 pm (UTC)
Hooooooly crap. All of these are just...whoa. What great collection of others' icons. And it's only just ONE installment?! I recognize many of these yet I don't recognize even more of them and it's too many to list to want to know who made what. :S Is there any way you could upload say a text file with a list of every single one's maker? I know it's a lot to ask but I'm always on the lookout for amazing icons/makers and that would be so useful. :D
Joshblueymcphluey on January 31st, 2010 06:27 pm (UTC)
haha, well the other installments aren't icons, just so you know ;)

hm, how about you ask me about a few now that you really want to know. And then ask about a few later. And then a few more later... I just don't think I could handle doing all of them at once, there's so many :P
Sarah!: [BrB] Elements of bad.killmotion on January 31st, 2010 06:44 pm (UTC)

that is not yours? But how about the icons that are here http://www.livejournal.com/allpics.bml?user=blueymcphluey

they are so similar.
Joshblueymcphluey on August 29th, 2010 07:58 pm (UTC)
oh haha, no the ones in this post are all by other people :P

I post my icons to this journal. They're a bit all over the place and hard to find so I've been meaning to make an icon journal but I'm so busy these days and I don't think it's going to happen any time soon

And the reason they're so similar is because I'm really inspired by these ones and so I guess that's why similar elements and techiques pop up
