All this switching around of avatars is giving me a headache. I think I'll play some soothing music with my new sidekick. Someone said something about avatars with guitars. Careful what you wish for.

have you counted those pinwheels ? i do have a job, you know (alas...). not to worry though, spinny-stop will be back (soon). but i'm sure you only mentioned your degree in computer graphics as a clever way of suggesting we ask you to do it... so...

my heavens you're right, we have yvan to thank for the avatar madness ! i should have guessed. merci bien yvan, c'était grave l'éclate ! d'ailleurs c'est pas fini... (sneaky vr, setting up yvan to take the fall...)

wiser words were never spoken. well, rarely. perhaps on occasion. not too often though. wiser words are sometimes spoken, but it's rare, although it has been known to happen, however really not often, and certainly less than once a day. much less. almost never, in fact.

wait let me start that again. wiser words...

watch out planethead, that squirrel has got your taylor... (today, on monty python : how to confuse a cat !)

It's just a 'lasso without background' and a spin/animate 23 TIMES.... 23 TIMES ...

Child's play for a web designer/graphic artist...

BUT if you want me to prove a theory or so, by all means, I'll step in and supervise...

I'm really concerned for Cthulhu. Look at his avatar. It looks like it's from a toddler's board book. "Oh, no!", says little Marc, playing together with little Adrian. "It's a cute little Cthulhu, the Old One! What's on the next page?" "Let me see!", says Adrian. "Is it a poussin? Or maybe a puddle canard eating a little blue-finned poison?" "Can I have its intestines, please?", asks Marc. "I want his intestines!!" Anyway, let's seque safely away from there and move on to the possibility of designing an avatar worthy of Chtu...of Ctuhl...CTHLU...The Old One. Now I'm rather fond of this little number. How about you? It looks mighty scary to me. Imagine that comin' at ya! Anyway, please post your ideas here.

ooh, who's publishing *that* children's book ??? i want to buy it for every child i know.

i second your suggestion for a new avatar for ol' squid bucket (it's easier to spell...) ; that one *is* scarier.

i imagine we'll have more to choose from soon though...

For some reason the words of that country song, "I'm so much cooler online" keeps running through my head.


I'm a Sci-Fi fanatic
Mild asthmatic
Never been to 2nd base
But there's a whole nother me
That you need to see
Go check out MySpace

...

It turns girls on that I'm mysterious
I tell 'em I don't want nothing serious
'cause even on a slow day I can have a three way
Chat with two women at one time

I'm so much cooler online
So much cooler online

This may be a kindness on his part. If we could see the full horror of The Old One then we would be utterly consumed with fear (and probably utterly consumed by him as well).

Yeah. What he said. See .... all these "I luuuv you's " got me some much needed attention.

But I really do enjoy Taylor514ce's poetry. And the sticky notes.....
