Mild nsfw warning: violent themes against men, women, children, and animals + a bit of corse language.

Skips merrily away with 2, 11, 25, 44, 87 & 108 , now contemplating subscribing to LJ just so I can use all these icons! XD

Fantastic idea for icons, thank you ;)

I give you my little black heart for that comment.

Peeing on a wire has got to be one of the worst ways to go I've ever heard of and like you, there is just something special about the baby. Once again, I'm inclined to blame my appreciation of Edward Gorey as a bedtime story.

I actually absolutely love this collection, not taking any at the moment, but will return for some!
☆: Hand - Xtheidolhands on December 5th, 2009 06:11 pm (UTC)
It really helps to know stuff like this, I'm always a little concerned that my imagination is too weird. Thank you!

The art is wonderful, but some of the content here is deeply disturbing. I am so drawn to it, though. Will certainly take #17 and maybe more, will credit. Thanks for a really original, unforgettable batch!
☆: Hand - Xtheidolhands on December 6th, 2009 02:41 am (UTC)
Thank you for understanding exactly where I'm coming from. And what a purr-fect icon, I might add!

LOVE THEM! Not taking any right now (no space) but will be coming back for some. I especially love the kids ones!

There is a big electric box at school and the warning label on it has this big angry mass of electricity with an angry face and it's zappin' a guy
☆: ✙ - idoltheidolhands on December 6th, 2009 02:43 am (UTC)
I would be obliged if you could be troubled to photograph that. :)
Kelsey: Candyktpoole891 on December 6th, 2009 08:48 am (UTC)
I thought I already had! I looked through all my stuff and was like "aw man I don't have that scary electrical picture!" but I'll get it monday or tuesday as long as I remember my camera.
elec3nity on December 5th, 2009 08:15 pm (UTC)
Great idea and realization! :)
Saved a lot.
manhattann on December 5th, 2009 08:42 pm (UTC)
These were hilarious. Great job.
Tom: mörkökannibaalirotta on December 5th, 2009 09:11 pm (UTC)
fantastic! took all of them, will definetily credit.
Kelleykschap on December 5th, 2009 09:16 pm (UTC)
Lovely work, as always. Do I spy some urination in the first few rows? LOL! (Reminds me of that game that was on Ren and Stimpy: "Don't Whiz On The Electric Fence!")

Saving a few for future use. :)
☆: Bowie - heathentheidolhands on December 6th, 2009 02:55 am (UTC)
Yes, yes you do. And for once, Ren and Stimpy give very good advice!

Great idea! Snagged a few, thank you!
aurora_dark on December 6th, 2009 12:53 am (UTC)
Oh wow, I love the idea for these. You're brilliant.

I am certainly taking the housekeeper from hell and that burning iron. Wonderful, original set.
Mug-zsunquistadora on December 6th, 2009 09:21 am (UTC)
Fabulous! I took several!
☆: ZAP!theidolhands on December 6th, 2009 11:23 am (UTC)
Thank you very much, I appreciate it!
shichiyou_kuranshichiyou_kuran on December 6th, 2009 01:01 pm (UTC)
Ow, so brutally cool. May I take some?
☆: Hand - Xtheidolhands on December 6th, 2009 01:48 pm (UTC)
I'd be honored, and you'd help to justify my intense and voluntary labor. ;)
shichiyou_kuran: Rena Ryuuguu black wingshichiyou_kuran on December 6th, 2009 02:17 pm (UTC)
:) I will credit you, don't worry :)
Hollyfuchsiascreams on December 6th, 2009 07:09 pm (UTC)
Very original. I love them. I was getting really tired of seeing the same icons of pretty pink pancakes and Blair from Gossip Girl. RAT ONES HATH BEEN STOLEN.
☆: Hand - Xtheidolhands on December 6th, 2009 07:47 pm (UTC)
Excellent, the rats needed a good home.
I feel you, it mostly ain't my cup of tea either. So I decided to start a home brew.

I took #26. It reminds me when I was... maybe 4, I was sucking my fingers at this time, they were wet and I put them into a plug. I lost my nails... fortunately for me, it was only that.

But eh, they all are fantastic. I love how you play with colors and with the comments you add on the pictures.

Naturally, I'll credit.
☆: IH - cautiontheidolhands on December 7th, 2009 06:43 am (UTC)
I have this stockpile of things, in my mind that capture my imagination -- it's very crowded in there, but I promise you are among them. Pardon my inability to split and clone myself or I promise more time would be spent in that corner (though I always struggle to catch up).

It's funny you should mention that personal story, because I neglected to consider my own obsession in youth with getting deliberately electrocuted. Apparently that's more unusual than paste-eating or so forth, but I did give it up when the technique went overboard at a department store. However, the fascination remains.

Love the rat ones.
These are really cool, the subject matter is certainly very interesting. I love the ecclecticism!

Love your work.
☆: ZAP!theidolhands on December 8th, 2009 10:02 am (UTC)
It was really nice of you to say that. Thank you.
shesnoscientist on December 10th, 2009 12:27 pm (UTC)
I came in desperate need of some beautiful icons and now am totally in love with your work. I will take #89 for now but might come back later for more. Thanks for providing them!
☆: Hand - Xtheidolhands on December 10th, 2009 12:58 pm (UTC)
Stop by anytime!
It always makes me feel way less crazy when I read things like this. My sincere appreciation.

Re: fanTAStic
Thank you for saying so. I really enjoyed creating these odd things too. ;)

Re: fanTAStic
Well, they are just *so* unique - I love it. Thank you for sharing! I *might* even have to use one - and I have never used someone else's design!
