Since I started posting here, subconsciously I've been associating people with a certain avatar they had for a while, or for some reason got stuck in my head (whether you have it now, have had it for a while, or have never changed it)

I don't have the pics now, but I can at least describe them, which I think from there, you'll be able to know what I'm talking about...


Gold Trumpet - the Throne of Blood cover

Jeremy Blackman - the shadow of Adam Sandler running in PDL

Regular Karate - Big Lebowski Region 2 cover

Pubrick - The moving bee

cbrad - the kid from Sigur Ros' ( ) album

Cinephile - Mr. T

Stefen - The Ant

GDIDM - Kurt Russell

ono - the Critic

Withnail - Simon and Garfunkel

Gamblor - the tree in the Ring

Pas Rapport - in the spaghetti

sonowthen - Mean Streets

modernage02 - the Kill Bill collage

Macguffin - Falling Down (although I did particularly like your Se7en series)

NEON MERCURY - Mulholland Drive

Sleuth - Rorshack

Pedro - the llama

Those are the ones that come to mind... anyone else associate people with their avatars?

yes.  and its weird, before i knew what sorts of personalities most regular posters were i would feel differently about them when 'speaking' to them based on what avatar they had.  like, if i thought someone was being a jerk and they had a snobby avatar, i'd be like 'pfft.  what a jerk'.  but if they had like a hot chick avatar i'd be all like '....they're not all bad.  maybe they have a point.'



good times...

Shit, I meant Jeremy Blackman, sorry... it wasn't that I group you two together, I was just typing a bunch of names.

yo it true, robert towne once said that kurt russell is hollywood's best kept secret.  i couldn't agree more.

it's funny because that pic you have of him is perfect for a tag.  up here in toronto there is this graffiti artist/tagger that plasters up cut out pictures of val kilmer.  they're everywhere and they look fucking wicked awesome, it's been on the news and in the local papers.

you should start doing that wherever you live with that pic of Kurt, it has a similar vibe to the pic of val.  big trouble styles.

Alison didn't last very long on your avatar runway either. Girl can't catch a break.

Don't get me wrong, Allison is definitely high on the list of my one true loves.  But the animated one gave Lucid a headache:


...and you can barely tell it's her in the other one:


So now I've got easy-to-look-at French singer girl, whose name slips my mind.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

So now I've got easy-to-look-at French singer girl, whose name slips my mind.

And a wise choice that was, too bad you don't remember because I was about to ask who that beauty is.  :inlove:
