    My parents had HBO when I was young. Whenever I saw the flying HBO thing heading towards me whenever a movie started, I used to freak out because I thought since it was moving towards me, it would somehow float out of the TV and attack me. I mentioned this in another post somewhere, but anyway, 15 years later, I taped this intro onto a DVD, played it on Windows Media Player, hit the 'print screen' button, put it in a Microsoft Paint JPG and shrunk it way down to meet the insane maximum of 80x80 pixels.

    Because it's the same thing I use everywhere. Except that I had to scale it down a bit and thus remove some details, 100x being the standard and Retrojunk using some strange, non-standard size...

    I chose my avatar because it quite resembles Butt-Head. I also like how his one eyebrow is elevated in this particular shot.
    Come to Butt-Head...

    I pretty much had my old blue metaur avatar since I signed up, so it was time for a change.

    I like AMD anyway, and resaw this picture as someone's avatar on another board I goto, and was like "why not."

    I was looking at this site for old "creepy" sesame street stuff a long time back, so I pulled up this little guy from a screenshot from Sesame Street circa 1970, here's a few pictures of him, he's known as "Beautiful Day Monster", as his debut was during the 60's in a muppet skit on late night TV...

    I'm not sure if I posted here yet..well I'm doing it anyway

    At first I had Lisa Simpson (my fave Simpson next to Homer), and now I have Jazmine DuBois from The Boondocks I'm using the TV show model, not the original comic strip model. I just love her Jazmine is a typical young girl. She reminds me of Sally from Peanuts I think her character is a sweetheart, that's why I have the pic as my avatar.

    I chose my avatar because I looove the old Disney show Under the Umbrella Tree. When I was a wee one, 4 and 5, a day could not pass without me being glued to the TV when UTUT came on. I grew up with that show and really fondly remember all the old characters...Gloria, Holly, Iggy, and Jacob.

    I guess I chose mine because I couldn't think of anything else. I'm also in the US NAVY.

    I chose mine because I absolutely love the band Tool and think that their music is some of the best music I have ever heard. First heard them back in the early 1990's while watching Beavis and Butt-Head on MTV. They played the video 'Sober' and I was hooked ever since. I own every album they've put out, every DVD they've put out, and am COMPLETELY psyched that their next album is being released on May 2nd. (Titled "10,000 Days"). Of all their songs, Sober will always be the one that I like the best. My avatar is a screen capture from the video 'Sober'.
