    Your Avatar?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by dushechka, Jul 27, 2007.

    Considering we have an* user name thread, I figured I'd ask this too:

    What's your avatar, and why?

    *an, or a?




    Anywho, mine is actually a photo of Boris Pasternak because he's amazing and such. =]

    Like I said in the User Name topic: My avatar is awesome. 'Nuff said.

    But if you really MUST have an answer beyond that (siiigh), then the Ninja Mafia is a prominent part of the BEST WEBCOMIC EVAR, Sam and Fuzzy

    Avatars change. The one I have now, and have had for a while, is cropped from a movie publicity shot of the Silver Surfer, and with the background adjusted.

    My first avatar here was a photo of Rodin's statue, The Thinker. In between I had a color drawing of a floating brain with eyes bobbing at the end of optic nerves.

    When you change your avatar, it changes for every post you've ever written, so there's no use looking through back posts to see the older avatars. :)

    My current avatar is from a game I play called neopets. It is a mini world type of game where you raise neopets and buy and sell items.

    This is just one of my favorite lemon items the site offers.

    Mine's a picture of a hand from someone who has an inherited condition called Hexadactyly.

    I find the abberations of life pretty cool, worthy enough of being my avatar.

    lul-i.

    I'll probably change it soon.

    Eoz, I assumed it was a doctored image (no pun intended, for once)

    But thanks for providing me with my next Word of the Day :D

    I just found this fallen angel pretty, but also with an edge to it....no other reason.
    (if that makes any sense)

    Bialar Crais and Talyn from the series called... Farscape.

    I'd use Critchon, but I haven't found an avatar of him I like enough. That and I like Talyn, but you have to feel sorry for him at the end of series three.

    By the way, Talyn is the ship, Crais in the guy.
