Why am I so obsessed with userpics lately? [Aug. 17th, 2003|04:04 pm]

No clue. Anyways, here's some responses from my "What am I missing, userpic-wise?" question in the recent poll I created (the rest of you can answer anytime now...), and my answers to them...

rosaleendhu -- brains...

Do you mean brains as in intelligence? Because for that, I have my Raistlin pic, although I use it mostly to depict me thinking evil thoughts, or relating something evil I've done...Or, do you actually want one of my userpics to be an actual picture of brains?

rosaleendhu (continued) -- or maybe bunnies

No. Unless it's Bun-Bun. Then I'd start using him to represent evil, and Raistlin would become intelligence only...

cyberpilate -- Uhm... something unimportant.

Well, really that defines all of my userpics...

shironiku -- Speedball Kurt. :P

I've considered it many times, but unfortunately, I don't have any pics of me in that costume that are square enough to reduce down nicely. You end up with something like this:
I need to talk to Fred about getting my webpage space to function properly...

technomonkey (accidentally posting as lindasings) -- An evil pic from Big-Evil

All right. You heard the man, bigevil! Feel free to take whichever picture you feel has the most evil potential (besides the Raistlin pic. That's just too easy.)

ka0 -- A pic of ya without a beard!

Again, I point people to the Raistlin pic...Other than that, either the pictures of me as Speedball or my college ID photo are the most recent pictures of me without a beard. It's pretty rare that people have a camera around on those rare times that I don't have a beard.

ideaspace -- Sex monkeys

Only if they were giant talking pirate sex monkeys...(Only Christopher Priest fans will get that...)

There is a picture of you, as Speedball and without a beard, that is up on my Aeric site. It's from your Rush. Feel free to use it.

Yeah, I've got that picture but, as you'll see once I have a chance to talk to Fred and get my webpage space working correctly, cropping that picture down and shrinking it to fit the 100x100 pixel requirement of LJ leaves you going "What's that a picture of now?"

Then again there's

This, which shows more of the outfit, including the belt:

Or, perhaps, this, which cuts to the chase:

Let's not cut to the chase so much, shall we?

Yeah, none of those three really get the idea of what the Speedball costume looks like...

Maybe one day I'll actually pose for a picture that could be easily made into an LJ icon in that costume.

In the meantime, as you can see, Speedball has become one of my new userpics.

Dude, don't use the entire pic, just crop the head and use that.
