    I like pink floyd. I especially love the Wall. I had just seen the movie of the Wall when I wanted to change my avatar. It seemed a simple choice.

    It's John Petrucci from Dream Theater, one of my favorite guitarrists ever. He's truly an inspiration for me.

    Man... mine's really old now. It was probably about 3 years ago, and I had just downloaded GIMP because I needed it to do something (I can't remember what), and I was playing around in it trying to draw something. Well, it looked really ugly, so then I started messing around with the smudge tool until it looked kinda cool. Then, one day while I was looking through my old files I figured it looked quite cute so I set it as my avatar. And I've never got round to changing it since then.

    See that you don't, it's adorable. All the moreso that you made it yourself.

    I went for some time without an avatar as I couldn't think of anything that was quite right for me. When I finally settled on an image of Mr. Grant as the way to go, I had to scan almost all the way through 'His Girl Friday' to find an image with the right angle. The fact that he was interacting with a phone at the time was an added bonus. I don't envision changing it.

    Mine is the headshot of a drawing a tbn member did of me. I thought the drawing was amazing and made me look good. I've always liked it a lot and it feels perfect for an avatar.

    Here's what the entire pic looked like (not that anyone besides me cares :p ).

    Mine has almost always been a Mew, expect very briefly when I first joined TBDL when it was a fox. I changed it to Mew when people thought I was a furry.

    Why Mew? I probably spent half an hour doing random searches on Google Images until I thought to search for Mew.
    I figured it was a good choice because:
    • It's very cute.
    • It's a Pokémon, which is something I (and others) associate with childhood.
    • It says the right things (or maybe just good things) about me: Mew is unique, cute, tough, and likes to float around.
    • It's a cat, I love cats.
    • It's pink!
    • It's a Greek letter!
    • Un-threatening.
    • Lot's of pictures of it to steal use.

    I don't change it because I changed it to Pocoyo once, and people bitched PMed me saying "OMG you changed it!". And I like it to be constant too, why not?

    Butterfly Mage


    I chose one that matches my screen name. I did an internet search of "butterfly" + "fairy". Of course, being gay, the fairy part is a bit of a double meaning, har har.

    I've got a butterfly and vampire tarot deck too. Very kewl.
