Funny that, we've been studying Foucalt at University as well. 'Death of the Author' and the like in the module.

Why would you do that? It's so appropriate. The lighting in the picture is scarce, and marvin is looking around, almost as if he was, you know... drifting.

My 3-year-old son really likes to watch the "Mahna Mahna" video on youtube, and life feels really caddywumpus right not, so I thought that the two went together.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTXyXuqfBLA

However, on the "rate the person's avatar below you" thread, mine got a low score, so I've been contemplating changing it, but without inspiration so far...

I had a slight Metallica craze going on Tuesday night.
But, I do love them so I decided I'd keep it till I find something cooler to change it to.

My avatar: Captain Spaulding - House Of A 1000 Corpses & The Devils Rejects. One of the most hysterical characters to grace film. He is everything that I am not and do not have the balls to be.

Mine is of a Rolex Submariner 50th Anniversary watch. Watches are my other life-consuming hobby. My name and avatar are taken from the penchant of formal (i.e. ads, catalogs, etc.) watch photography to have the hands placed at 10:10 for asthetic reasons. I have noticed that my two hobbies are intergalactically connected by, you guessed it, time. Weird...

You should really check out Antichrist Superstar, it was a very inspirational album to me and has some of my favorite tracks on it.

Well...


Mine needs little, if no, explanation.

Neil and his Ludwig kit, from the "Presto" album. circa 1989.

Love that kits color, with the purple background!

Don't think I'm gonna change this avatar anytime soon! ;-)

Mine is from a photo shoot we did at my salon for a hair competition I entered. The photographer wanted to capture the whole process, so this is me getting the model ready. I think I am putting her makeup on here.

Look, I hate to speak for the ole boy but it is rather curious as to why he hasn't posted on this thread. But I have found his source and it is a Garden of Eden:-0 BTW, eddiehimself is on the right track...

Oh, and Gruntersdad, as a proof of life that I found your source I offer you this: as of the timestamp on this post, taylor shine;-) He, he.

I just got home from vacation and saw this. My avatar for the past few weeks have been Tampabay Bucs Cheerleaders. The current one will be the last one unless they make the playoff then I will bring out few more. After that I will get back to something more Gretsch related since that is my current and fave drum brand. Nothing too exciting. The cheerleaders were fun but don't want to threaten the decorum of the forum.

I liked yours from the moment I saw it. The words 'classic' and 'standard' come to mind.

A pro photographer took this pic of me at a benefit for disabled Veterans. The members of this band that I play with are all Vets and we raise cash to help our brothers and sisters at almost every gig. When I first saw the photo I silently looked at it for about five minuites. A tear came to my eye. I can't explain it but I saw something special in its composition. When I look at this pic I can hear the "Thousand Words" that a picture speaks. A thousand words that I would say if I knew what those words were. This pic says those words for me.

Speaking as a veteran, who is currently deployed to Operation Enduring Freedom, thanks on thier bahalf!

I can say that current veterans enjoy support never afforded to Korean war and Vietnam vets. The Korean war vets were almost forgotten. The Vietnam vets were treated with unbelievable inhumanity and often misdirected contempt. It must have been like being punished twice (three times for draftees) for nothing.

Vietnam was a time in hell for good soldiers and gutless politicians calling the shots from 10,000 miles away in a boardroom.

Please take time to thank these patriots who returned with honor!

Hate the war...support the warrior.

I know this is pretty off-topic, but:

I've been trying to put a picture of my Remo Emperor X on my page.
But everytime I try to put it on, it says I don't have permission, and makes me log back in. Once I log back in, it says the upload failed.

Any advice?
