Criterion cover of Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood. I thank Sphinx for removing the original title and markings. He did it as a favor to me right before he left the board for good and I'm still grateful. The irony is that I never considered the film a masterpiece at all. There are much better Kurosawa films and even a better Kurosawa Shakespeare adaptation, but I just liked the cover and figured it fit my persona on the board.

That's pretty frightening.  Those kids looked either like they were drugged into a stupor or were enthralled with the joy of killing something.  Now I understand why when I was a kid my mother would kick me outside after more than an hour of video games.

Post by: Pozer on January 13, 2011, 11:43:11 AM
well thanks. the story of my av guy is almost as exciting as why p sometimes uses caps lock in his postings. many moons ago after tiring of my original av (i believe it was simply the word "POZER" all obscured or something) i did a google image search of the word . . . you guessed it: pozer. an attempt to find something more imaginitive turned belly-up. now at the time someone round these parts had an av of an oldtimey bloke (i believe it was charles fort of charles fort??) so for that reason i suppose this 18th century fella here who turned up in the image results called out to me (sheesh what a poser!). his name was christian henry pozer and he was a canadian politician and who he was meant nothing i just liked the look of his b&w portrait.

here's a few classics of ol poz that should be more entertaining than the story of how he came about

Title: Re: Avatar Explanations
Post by: Gold Trumpet on March 21, 2011, 06:35:09 PM
Thanks. Haha, don't put me into a corner to defend The Postman. Either way, I have no huge critical feelings about the film so I will not easily trash it or recommend it, but I love Bull Durham and Crash Davis as a character. In all my movie viewing years, he's still a rare character I love as a character and also emulate. It's easy to emulate when you're younger, but those feelings die off. Crash Davis is always a great character for me to like still.

Freddie/Tyler, if you are wondering why your avatar was removed it's because it was a gif of Joaquin Phoenix playing with that storegirl's tits in the dark room.

Do I actually have to explain that this is clearly NSFW and appears on every one of your posts without warning?

are you being serious? it's a gif of the dark room titty touching scene from the master where he pokes her nipples and she plays coy. there's no ambiguity in my description.

it's your faux endorsement of this kind of thing that makes the dude think it was ok to have a blatant sex scene as his avatar without a single thought spared for the basic etiquette of an internet forum. it's fucking stupid. this isn't a porn forum. he may be rigorously rubbing one out every time he posts, with dual monitors, one for reposting bullshit on this board and the other permanently on xhamster, but the rest of us sometimes have to be in public places where we have to rely on basic human decency of others not to ruin the wholesome experience of browsing xixax.

let me put it in terms you might understand, tyler is the scumbag steve of this board. i don't know why he's back, but it's only a matter of time before he's gone again. he just can't help being a thoughtless idiot.

I'm going to invite myself to this exchange.

I've met with Neil Hamburger twice, after each time I've seen him.  He breaks character immediately after the show and is such a kind guy.  He's a musician first and foremost and it shows in both his comedy and the conversations I had with him, however brief.  There was an awful pop-punk band performing before one of his sets and he had nothing but complimentary things to say about them.  He wasn't lying--rather, he found all the positive things he could to say about the group.

The first time I saw him I was 17, stoned, with hair down to my shoulders. During the set he called me "whatever the fuck this thing is."   I was young and so a little bummed, but I understood.  After the set, he said hi and said "hey, sorry I was just being an asshole."  Then he initiated a group hug with me and my best friend.

n i met neil hamburger and told him a joke.
I'm going to invite myself to this exchange.

I've met with Neil Hamburger twice, after each time I've seen him.  He breaks character immediately after the show and is such a kind guy.  He's a musician first and foremost and it shows in both his comedy and the conversations I had with him, however brief.  There was an awful pop-punk band performing before one of his sets and he had nothing but complimentary things to say about them.  He wasn't lying--rather, he found all the positive things he could to say about the group.

The first time I saw him I was 17, stoned, with hair down to my shoulders. During the set he called me "whatever the fuck this thing is."   I was young and so a little bummed, but I understood.  After the set, he said hi and said "hey, sorry I was just being an asshole."  Then he initiated a group hug with me and my best friend.

Damn that's awesome. He seems like a top guy. Hilarious too. Looking forward to seeing Gregg in Rick Alverson's new movie.

What was the joke 03? Will it work in text?

neil hamburger came to a dive bar in downtown mobile alabama shortly after i got out of jail.
i'd been listening to his comedy thanks to xixax legend SLEUTH for a long time, and was completely flabbergasted to hear he was coming to a place as small as this. a couple punk bands played before him at this show also, pedro. that's crazy.
i was friends with the owner so i got to chill upstairs before his set with him, and he is just the most respectful, nicest dude ever. he's so fuckin cool. he's just smooth man. anyway, he went on, and fuckin killed it. there were maybe 30 people there because no one had ever heard of him except me and a couple local comics. when the show ended i helped him and his buddy pack up his equipment and i was so wasted i told him a joke while doing an impersonation of him and at the end he gave me a huge hug and got into a super tiny car.
i had to ask my friend to remind me of the joke. if you don't know neil hamburgers style of comedy you might find this offensive so:

what kind of underwear does president barack obama use?

he appreciated it.

Am I mistaken or did N have the EXACT avatar RK is now using about a week ago. I can't see myself getting those two members confused with eachother. Anyways, now I have to ask where it's from.

I've had it as my iPhone lock screen for a year or two*. It's kind of perfect. It was made by Jared Lyon. Probably goes without saying that it's the carpet from the Shining blending into the tile from Twin Peaks.

That's weird. Must've just been a glitch on my phone because your avatar was showing up as this:

I'm stymied.
