I thought I posted here already about my current avatar. Anyway, I've posted about this guy often enough, so I guess you know by now.
he's a politician, right ;)
It's from his passionate speech against immigrants that nabbed him the president's throne. It's an official check too.

Yeah, he's an ultra right-wing politician. In this picture he's having the stage at a party meeting and he's shouting "WHITE POOOOOOOOWER"!!



Let me rectify this immediately in case he happens to read this, because it's the complete opposite actually. He's very left-wing, very much making a case for nature and environment. He's a musician (duh) from Canada and on stage he's the most enjoyable person I've ever seen.

The first few months (or maybe even a year) after J-Dog adopted his new avatar, upon seeing that avatar it would look to me like someone who got hit in his eye with either the 8 ball or the black ball from a snooker set. After a second or so I'd be like "no that's a dude yelling into a mic, just like the previous 20 times you saw that avatar." But my brain seems to have finally learned its lesson now.

have to admit, though, I've absolutely no face recognition. Might know the band or even his name, but yeah, he looks like some neo-fasc nutter screaming about mudbloods or something (sorry, but it's just what I see and while I associate the avatar with your posts, I don't associate any of those ideas with you - thus a bit of cognitive dissonance when I first saw the avatar)

Adam finally has an avatar now. I believe Local and Allie are among the biggest posters who don't have one.
Now that I've finally joined the group of people with avatars, I think it's time to campaign for the avatar-less members to get one.

What inducements you got for the avatarless? And that doesn't include me - I'll return to my usual avatar when the US gets a president.

I’ll change it to a friendlier pic of the same guy (when I’m back home).

There's always a bit of truth in teasing, isn't there? ;)
It's just fun to have a new one now and then, but when you associate my avatar with the PVV (you're talking about the ultra right party in The Netherlands, right?), it's certainly time for a new one. :D

LOL - you should know the answer to that by now. Of course that's exactly what I meant! :thumbsup: (Even though I admit I had to look it up since while I was familiar with the Dutch far wrong on some level, I didn't have their name/acronym - or in this case, acridnym). There are other kinds of woke - one of which is aware what's happening around the planet, not that I mean to brag, much. :cowbow:

Yep, same as me. Took me a couple of years to get a new one as well.

I am so happy I have tears in my eyes. ;)

But seriously though, now that it is gone, I really did hate your last avatar. Looked like a very angry screaming man about to eat a ball.

Maybe it is because I am simple minded, but I find that people's avatars affect how we view that person a little bit. Something goofy - lighthearted, some thing serious - thinker, image from a silent film - older person, etc. Complete crap of course, but it flavours the posts a little bit. Your old avatar made your comments seem angry and annoyed.

At the official forum my avatar is a little pic of my daughter flying like a butterfly when she was very little. Do you think I'm a kinder person there? :lol:

But I understand what you're saying. I'm having the same ideas with some avatars as well. monty has always been a grumpy man to me........ oh wait, he really is! :lol:

Avatars don't affect how I view somebody.
Anyway it won't affect how I view JT since we already know how he looks in RL anyway.

But escaping a cage to faceplant is actually an allegory for my life.
