    Ever wonder what a users avatar means? Maybe why they chose it? Welcome to the thread of explanations.

    I'll start. Pretty simple. I love Apple and I live in Texas and love it. The end.

    Edit: After thinking, we all change our Avatars so I'm going to include my current one in this post.

    My normal avatar is my cat licking his balls.
    Right now it's the Cubs' logo as it was the last time they won ... well anything important. :D

    It's been my brain for a little while as that is where my posts actually come from (although some times it doesn't seem like it :D)

    Picture 1.png

    I have been meaning to change it back to my long standing avatar for a while:

    Avatarblinkingright.gif

    I chose this originally as I like skulls and The Evil Dead.

    It is the Peugeot logo on my current bike.

    I liked the way it looked "weathered"

    Come on let's get all story time on you.

    Currently it's a close up and retouch of my original avatar.

    [​IMG]

    In it's original form I changed the background a lot, and got a bit seasonal too.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's based off a drawing I was given, it was supposed to be me by the end of my 1st year of uni, after a poncho wielding drug fuelled binge.

    [​IMG]

    And that's the story of my avatar.

    I have always loved that you've stuck with Daglass. I love Darkplace so much it's ridiculous.

    Toht, from Raiders of the Lost Ark. As his face melts.

    He represents what some people on this forum become when Apple doesn't release a product specifically designed for them, made for free, delivered by Steve Jobs and Jessica Alba.

    :D

    I loved the Peanuts while growing up, and Snoopy in particular was my favorite.

    I figure mine should be fairly self-explanatory... considering it's an iToaster...

    Mine was originally created in support of Universal apps on both PPC and Intel.The ying/yang of Macs.

    It could have other meanings in the Mac computer world.

    I made a photography series about redheads last year, and this is the image I used to pull models/actors from a facebook casting call. I found it on google.
