    Default I need a new avatar

    All these picture threads are really fun, but I'm afraid I am not quite as good with associating pictures with personalities. I am intensely curious about what other people might come up with, however.

    As much as I enjoy and sympathize with the character Colonel Algrin from The Last Samurai, I have had a number of people talk about Tom Cruise. Given that I don't really follow Tom Cruise as an actor and don't have anything to do with scientology, I think I should really choose a different avatar to epitomize me.

    As much as I enjoy and respect Patrick Stuart as an actor, somehow I just can't quite epitomize an old bald guy regardless of how much I sympathize with Captain Picard.

    I thought of Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy (INTJ), but I'm not sure about that one either.

    Of course, I suppose it could be something entirely abstract, like a Sierpenski Gasket or something, but I want something fun and creative too.

    Does anyone have any good ideas for an avatar for me?

    How do you go about picking an avatar anyway?

    Either of these would be great, but I prefer the first one.

    Wow, the one of the left has a hilariously sardonic expression. I very rarely show that much disdain (or at least I think I don't, hmm).
    That would make a really good ORLY pic.

    I like the one on the right (though I'd have to resize it). Hmmm, still, I'm wondering if there isn't something a bit more fun than boring old Mr. Darcy (despite Mr. Darcy apparently having beaten out James Bond and Superman as the number one dinner date in Britain)

    The real trouble is that I'm not sure that everyone will understand that it is Mr. Darcy rather than Colin Firth.

    Of course, when I go searching on the internet for "Avatar", I inevitably run up against the Nickelodeon television show.

    Avatar: The Last Airbender - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    How about this one:


    Sokka kind of looks mean in this pic, though, and I would so be an airbender, it isn't even funny.

    *sigh* Mendokusei 'nda (translation: "how troublesome")


    From the Japanese show: Naruto.

    Its strange how similar those two characters look.

    Who cares? Women love him! Just please get rid of Tom Cruise!

    Thanks, and hope you have a Happy New Year!

    Please pick Mr Darcy, please pick Mr. Darcy (the one on the left) *crosses fingers*

    *laugh* Yes, this has been long overdue.

    Here you go Jen, we'll try this one for a while. Does anyone else have any ideas?

    My avatar used to be a close-up of the rings of saturn. I have always liked pictures of saturn and I enjoy learnig about stars, planets and such.

    I also happen to love waterfalls and hunted around the internet for something I really liked.

    Nothing personal Jen - just taking this opportunity to rant -

    I don't know why people think Colin Firth is so "hot". I'm a Pride and Prejudice enthusiast and I've seen his film 3 or 4 times. I have read scores of posts from starry-eyed teens going goo-goo over him. Maybe I'm too old to appreciate him, but I think he seriously needs a haircut and he's not that good-looking. [/rant] He is a better actor than MacFadyen, though.

    Much better. Although the one on the left is much more clever imho

    Mom, women like Colin Firth because he often portrays an intelligent and sexy English man.

    Unfortunately I am not sure that I like it. Despite Darcy being the epitome of the (anachronistic) INTJ, the avatar does not seem iNtuitive enough. I need something that is fanciful or otherwise Romantic (with a capital R).

    There is also the matter of taking myself far too seriously. I could probably uses something that reminds everyone that I have a light and sentimental side despite my rampant (often pedantic) intellectual ramblings.

    Any ideas?

    How about the Apollonian gasket (fractal)?
