I have a new icon. Don't know how often I'll get to use this but I've been wanting something with an INTJ Death Stare for a while. This is something that comes so naturally to us. It's not practiced but inate and so withering when directed at the person annoying us. Objects get this look, like computers that are misbehaving, though we haven't mastered intimidating inanimate objects yets. That's one we'll have to work on yet. Oh and for me it works great on dogs too. A bonus to my super power. Anyway, this is a scene from the awesome movie Megamind. Megamind is an INTJ all the way and I loved it when he gave this look to his henchmen Minion. This was after he'd taken over the city and he asked Minion if he thought they'd ever succeed. Minion responded with something like, "No sir. Never. Not in a..." Then he realized he was getting the stare. "...uh, yes. Yes I did." It was awesome. Minion's adorable. After watching it and the bonus cartoon I've realized he's actually an ISFJ. Because of this Minion has awesome expressions and body language. So here's the full sized one so you can see where I got the image from.

Click for full size.

There's one other scene that I made a screen cap of that I just love and fits very well for when I've gotten into flamewars.

He's inside a mecha and he's fencing using street lights with the villain Titan. The mecha does whatever motions Megamind does, which is just super awesome. Megamind's not afraid and all and enjoying it to the point he asked him for some witty verbal sparring like he used to have with Metroman. But Titan was just anger and all he could do was roar madly. "I'm not sure where to go with that." Megamind responds. I just love this particular frame because even though you can't see the street light well it's Megamind's expression that I love Titan's so pissed and hurt and using all his energy while it's all a game for Megamind. This is how it's been for most of the idiots I've defeated so I can relate to this pic. Chris and I love this movie. We quote it quite often.

Chris and I hooked up the spider lights today. They're not centered but we got them up at least and now the entrance looks more Halloweeny. I'll have to take pics of it. I went out with him today on some jobs and had a good time. I finished drawing Cope and the budgies. So that should be added to my To Be Inked stack. I let another butterfly go today. Only one Crysalis left to go.

Oh we had a bit of a disapointing electronics day yesterday. We had planned to transfer my 9-11 tape and our wedding tape to DVD and my video 8mm tape of my graduation and my original macaws to DVD. Well the vcr broke. And then we couldn't get the video 8 player to work. So we weren't able to transfer anything to DVD. We were so looking forward to watching that old footage. We're going to have to go to pawn shops to look for another VCR and a video camera that's 8mm just so we can play those tapes. How annoying. Though there's one idea I still need to try that could work.

I think that's it for now but I feel like I'm forgetting something. Hum...

I love Megamind! It's an awesome movie. I haven't seen the short cartoon though. People speak of it but it's not on my DVD. Tighten reminds me of one of my exes (just as dumb but angrier lol! and they look similar)

That's annoying. I have a VCR, in fact I was watching a video on it the other day. We only have about two in our house now.

Yes it's become one of my favorites. I got the blue ray dvd combo. It's on the blue ray. I really didn't like Tighten. Usually I like bad guys but he just wasn't respectable. And he was so ugly hehe.

I think it's good to always have a VCR no matter how advanced technology becomes.

Oh! I love the death stare icon! I have also given that stare many times to humans and inamtimate objects! Perfect look!

Oh, wow, only one crysalis left to go. I got some shots of a new caterpillar and butterflies the other day (well, it's new to me) I'll be posting soon.

We still have one VCR left in the house, saving it for some VCR tapes we made.

Well, just a quick stop here this morning and now back to the studio!

Thanks. Yes it's a good one to have. I loved it when he did that in the movie.

Yes, and I'm still finding caterpillars. My poor pipevine. I've seen new butterflies laying eggs on it and I wonder if they're the ones I released. I was hoping they'd go far awy. I look forward to seeing the pics.

It's always good to have a VCR I think.

Thanks for stopping by.

*teehee* I really need to watch that movie again sometime, I have not seen it since a long time. Megamind has a real funny voice in the German dub. XD

Oh Halloween, I need to get some decoration... but I'm getting that day off to have a 4 day weekend together with a public holiday at least. So it will be great anyway.

We have a bunch of old VCR in the house, not all are working but we keep them for spare parts ;). My dad even has some Video 2000 recorders also. The VHS should have never took their place. The VHS was much cheaper (which made it win I guess), more complex and weaker than the 2000 in my opinion.
Well Dad was always able to fix the very old Video 2000 recorders when he got some but was nearly never able to that in an easy way with a normal VCR because of the mentioned facts.

It's a great movie. I can relate to him so much.

I'm glad to hear you're going to decorate for Halloween this year. That's great.

I never heard of video 2000. Is that the same as Beta? I heard about beta and how it lost out but I never saw a beta tape only VHS. I heard people say it was better but have no experience with it.

Hehe, Gyro has a similar look. Luckily not usually directed at me!

That's disappointing not to be able to look at your wedding footage. Yeah, we still have a VCR but hardly ever use it any more and I expect it to break soon. Also, the tapes deteriorate.
Desthagirion on September 30th, 2011 10:40 pm (UTC)
It comes in very handy.

Yeah, hopefully we can get out and a new one because we still have a bunch of tapes to transfer and that's what I'm worried about.
