I'd like to have some fun... and interpret people's Avatar pics... please understand that my comments are all a silly imagining of what occasionally rough criticism of our pics might yield... it might be interesting for people to critique my interpretations, to provide their own... have fun!
Samuel De Mazarin... I'm so sexy, I have sexy hair dangling sexually over my sexy forehead, my sexy eyes peeking out from my glasses and everything is brought to a burning pique with that ridiculous super-Superman curlicue... look at my gaze, that "who, me?" disingenuousness of an arch coquette.... I've cut off the bottom half of my face, because, like some burqa-wearing women from Saudi Arabia, I can't be seen full-on by the world because I'm too damned precious. Ain't I mysterious? Ain't I brooding? DO ME!
Proteanmix... I've got a big strawberry in the picture which is oh-so red... one could interpret it sexually, but that would mean you're kind of shallow... others will notice the Lilliputian lovers (love it) seated towards the right of the frame... they're living in a dream world, but they don't need to be told the world isn't all strawberries and cream because they have each other... but I'm protean, and something of a mix, so I couldn't possibly be so naive and idealistic... rather, I wish for the best, but I mourn the fact that the world couldn't be this good... all love and strawberries and bright colors... if only... but we know better, right?
pure-mercury.... I'm cool because I'm "kempt"... I wear glasses so dark they scream at you to notice them, which is the sort of ultra-chic thing only self-confident men can do... but I'm not a braggart, which is why my pic is slightly blurry, and it looks like I'm side-stepping into the frame, kind of like a crab (which makes sense, because I'm a conservative)... I'm good-looking and thoughtful to boot... part of my face is cut off from the picture because part of me will always remain a mystery to you.
CaptainChick... I'm so cute and fun and full of life I didn't need a full-color photograph... sepia does the trick... look at that impish smile... I'm not a narcissist and I'm not a loner... I have friends! So no matter how much I post, recognize that I not only had someone with me, but a third person to snap the photo... I'm not an internet junkie AND I'm cute... REMEMBER... unlike most people, I'm bold enough to post a picture of myself as my avatar pic... not bad, pure_mercury... Samuel? Grow some balls... [on an unrelated note, the guy to your left looks like Matthew McConaughey in that movie where he was a raging, Dragon-fighting ultra-man.]
Lateralus... I'm nothing like the woman in this picture: she's looks soooooooo lame... additionally, my ostensible fascination with something as relatively unimportant as a mass movement to correct people's posture makes me uniquely sensitive to obscure issues, and hence more intelligent than you... but if you're really smart, you'll read it as a wry comment on society's Seinfeldian obsession with minutiae... wait, are you getting all the contradictions in my picture's message?
Jen... I'm hot and sensitive...
Zergling... "Isn't lightning cool?" <--- I'm full of wonder for the truly awe-inspiring things in life and am most likely the kind of guy who will suddenly leap up from the bar on a Friday night and rant for a minute about how bottled up people are and how they need to get out and experience the world... [also, you're the first guy I've met (on a non-RPG forum) who's surfing around with a name referencing an insectoid race of super-aliens... aside from my brother... who's sn is Zergbane... good on ya, mate!]
Booyalab... I'm deep and dark... like CaptainChick, I spurn full-color images because simpler gray and brown-scales often hit harder... "beware of this and that"... I often read and think about philosophy and have a good ability to distance myself from particulars and the contingent because I see the world for what it really is... much ado about nothing... I am also lampooning many people's irrational fears... deconstruct the raven and you can start to think like me...
Jennifer... I'm a Goth.
Kiddo... Anime represents the perfect fusion of art with commercialism... think about what that says about me! Also, I'm basically portraying myself as this dark personality, slumped somewhat apathetically on the wall, and yet experiencing something strange and miraculous, this crazy glowing butterfly... yes... the butterfly is my soul, and without having to grasp at it, I am able to commune with it... I know who I am... I KNOW WHO I AM...... do you?
There are so many other people from this forum whose pictures deserve a good interpreting... but I can't stay on the internet too long... I need to develop a life outside... HAVE AT IT!
P.S. for those of you who have recently written me private messages, I promise I'll get back in a day.... I've got to craft intelligent (yet truthful?) responses which match up to my amazing sexy avatar picture and smart-ass persona.
