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.'

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.

Yeah, I think that's it.  The little bit of her music that I've heard could curdle cheese, but she's certainly one of the prettier people who has ever lived.

I whipped this up in Photoshop the other day, and now it's my current Myspace profile pic.  It doesn't necessarily belong in this thread, since I have no intention of using it as my avatar here, but I think it's cool and I want to show it off, and this is close enough.

Warning: This post is long and it will take time to upload, but it's worth it I think.  :yabbse-undecided:

I've been planing to post this for a looong time, even years ago and always postponed it, but now inspired by the 'this place is dead' thread I decided to just do it, guess I was always looking for the right time to do it and never felt like it was.

I want this to have the feel of the old and now disappeared Blast from the Past thread, hope it brings good memories.

Also wanted the post to keep it shorter, and actually did keep it short! just bear in mind I chose these out of over 1500 avatars I've saved through all these years, yes I've saved almost every avatar that users have had, at least from the regulars, if somebody is not represented right now it's because I couldn't find a place for it.

I can't put the name of the xixaxer exactly below the avatars without making a mess so below the rows I'll write the name of the xaxers from left to right so you know who had it at that time.

Hope you like this, enjoy!

I have this one but I have a feeling it isn't the one you say, if that avatar is recent maybe I don't have it because for over a year haven't been able to save the avatars, for some odd reason I can't save them as gif, jpeg, png or whatever, even stopped trying to save them.  :yabbse-undecided:

now that cronopio's alive intermittently, maybe he can help me, or fernando if he knows..

one of crono's old avs was some kind of painting of a giant minotaur beast towering over a village.. can anyone tell me where that was from, who did it, anything? searches turn up nothing.. if it's a throwaway picture by a nobody that's cool too, i just would like to know.

i've been haunted by it all these years, in my memory it has come to represent an immensely creepy image. always when i see a mountain ridge in the distance, and i do often as my city is borded by a mountain range, i imagine this creature standing from the other side, looking so FIERCE. it really fascinates me.. i respond viscerally to the idea of it.

well, not goya. but still that assistant is a mad cunt.

does that image freak anyone else out? i think the idea i remembered is even cooler than that cos it was a fucked up beast with its back to us but its head slightly turned. i dunno. my reaction to that picture is comparable to what the old couple feel when viewing The Kramer.

This ended up being about 3 megs; I don't remember what the size limit for an avatar is, so I'm not sure if it'll work or not.


EDIT: Ensmallened.

You have to reduce size because this will be the avatar to end all avatars

There you go!

This av is both hilarious and poignant. It catches the young bee in a moment of play that is transitory in experience but everlasting in the form of nostalgic memory.. the children and the bee together perform what could only be described as a time tripping rain dance. The short loop of the kids doubles within the longer loop of the bee which results in a dissolution of standard gif loop structure that is both refreshing and thought provoking.

still.. it's no boobies.

That rules! He probably always pissed himself when he drank so he turned to acid to avoid the obvious parallels. Imagine seeing him in the library by himself, surrounded by books.. He's never gonna live that movie down.

I decided I wanted to change my avatar and for some reason the first thing I thought of was Hot To Trot (Bobcat Goldthwait talking horse movie,) so I did a Google Image search and
<-----------------that came up! Best part is the site linking to it was www.feelmybicep.com
That's all I got.

I mainly stay hidden because I spend too much time scrolling around the internet for different reasons and don't want to broadcast my back-and-forth too much with this website. There are a few recreational websites I just revisit often out of boredom.

I tried for so long to get this av, but I couldn't find the right size so I put a crappy photocopy version up and Pas bashed me for it, so once I saw the screenshot up there I had to take the oppurtunity to get it. Blade Runner is great, but I'm not even sure what's happening here. I don't remember it from the movie, but I know its at the end.

Kellen, is that Rivers Cuomo?

It has to be below certain dimensions and under a certain filesize, but I don't know offhand what those certains are.

Give this version a try. I'm pretty sure it will work.
