I've had my avatar from the beginning and never changed it. I only realized today that I've been a member here since '05 - that's 7 years! I haven't been that active the past 6 years, but I've visited the site for news for nearly every day since I became a member.
Anyways, sidetracking... my avatar is unused photage from the Lord of the Rings films where Sauron, in his form of "Annatar", would face Aragorn. I just it was a cool idea to have something seemingly pure and good turn in to something veil and evil.

My Avatar used to be a machine gun wielding kitten but when the forum change took place it changed to my user profile picture for some reason. I just left it that way.
Current avatar is a picture of me from a band photo shoot a few years ago.
Unlike ↓↓↓↓ this poster↓↓↓↓, I am far more conceited and quite enjoy my avatar.
So now my avatar is Gir, from Invader Zim. Part of my username is inspired by Invader Zim, so it seemed appropriate
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

it was just an image that i had in a folder of other images and artwork... and one of the few that was a small enough file (kb) to fit.. it suits my 'name' and I just like it. It's how i look if you close your eyes.

Don't be so damned selfish! If you do look like that, then I for one want to see you on every post!

Just a magical cat I found. My Signature picture is something I found on Galaxy Zoo. I ask what it was, nobody knew. Just saying, take it as you will, but that is what a Goddess looks like when you actually see one as they truly are.

Jack Skellington is one of my favorite characters of all time. I like his combination of civilness and insanity and scientific curiosity.

The Phantom Stranger.So mysterious,not even the writers could decide on his origins.So they gave him 3 possible ones.
