*points at your icon* What/who is that?
« on: November 18, 2008, 10:31:38 AM »
There are a ton of user icons that absolutely need explaining because I, for one, don't know who or what they are of and what relevance they have to anything.

Mine's a rhino ass. I suppose it's Bob's ass. He's squirrel-y like that. I had to reupload my userpic anyway, so I changed it from the happily grazing rhino to this. I like this one better. It captures Bob's essence.

So explain yourselves. What is your icon of and why is it your icon?

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.

Mine's an animated gif from the illustration to The Cheese Stands Alone, a card from the Magic: the Gathering CCG, Unglued extension. I've never taken MtG very seriously and had a hell of a time playing Unglued, and the Cheese was my favorite card, both for the picture, the effect, and the flavor text.

It's a big Kitsune. Vindictive, clever as hell, and prone to lots of Xanatos Gambits. That's me.

Sunic may be more abrasive than sandpaper coated in chainsaws (not that its a bad thing, he really does know what he's talking about), but just posting in this thread without warning and telling him he's an asshole which, if you knew his past experiences on WotC and Paizo is flat-out uncalled for. Never mind the insults (which are clearly 4Chan-level childish). You say people like Sunic are the bane of the internet? Try looking at your own post and telling me you are better than him.

Here's a fun fact: You aren't. By a few leagues.

Mines the Cheshire Cat, of course.  I liked the American McGee's verion of Alice in Wonderland, and ended up turning her Cheshire Cat into a tattoo I've got on the inside of my thigh.  Did a search for him, and found this neat lil avatar.  So there ya go.

My avatar is just some random 20s-30s-ish gangster I drew in the space of about five minutes. Liked the drawing, saved it, made an avatar out of it. :P

You know, I've seen that a bunch of times and never made the connection. Probably because it doesn't show his whole face.

It's a wizard...
He's casting something...

In honesty, it used to be a gif on a rather disreputable site.
I liked the image, so I stole it.

Can't even be bothered...
Ja vuosia myöhemmin
kalvas kaksikko lattialla motellin tihrustelee,
kun sama keiju katossa leijailee.
Kyselevät: "Mikä päivä nyt on?
Tiedätkö sen?"
Kuiskaten laulaa keiju:
"Tämän elämän viimeinen."
