    Avatars! What are you sportin' and why?

    Post by PTFlea on Tue Feb 10, 2009 12:28 am

    Whatcha got right now? Why? What was it before?

    Mine is obviously Kermit the Frog with an AK-45 (or something). It's there because I can do a mean Kermit impression and I think he's Diddle hilarious (as are most Muppets).

    I had that red Sens wallpaper for a while, then the season went tits up. Before this I have Grover looking friggin' adorable (I may actually go back to that). I toyed with everything from a train derailing to Genesis' The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

    I've become a wee bit of an avatar whore.

    MIne is the Boss, a character in Metal Gear Solid 3 (video game). Only game that I know that has such a deep story and so touching characters. Sad that only video games that go on TV are Guitar hero and Wiifit...or GTA to convince parents that video games are damaging kids' minds Suspect

    I used to have Alfie standing on the ice with his Jersey off. It was game 1 of the 07 Cup run vs. the Penguins just after a scuffle near the start of the game. It was the beginning of the Alfie chants. I chose my handle first and found that picture after. Most if not all of you should know my handle refers to Alfie but I thought I should spell it out since that's what this thread is for.

    The current one I have is because I find my handle is so close to Cap'n Crunch and so I modified a Cap'n Crunch box (Yes I did a poor job) because people were changing there Avatar like their underwear so I wanted to get in on the action :D

    Well mine is a photoshoped picture of Sam Mitchell (Old Raptor's Coach) on a picture of Tyrone the Crackhead (a Dave Chappelle character).

    I had a Fisher charicature that Clutch gave me (and I occasionally switch back to) and a few Family Guy ones. Currently, I have the marching Hammers from one of the BEST albums ever recorded: Pink Floyd,The Wall.

    I have an awesome Will Ferrell "Cowbell" one I will use shortly and a few other comedic ones.

    I'm trying to find some amusing or cool Sens animated avatars, but so far, no such luck.

    Original one is Beeker freaking out at a kitchen fire. Just makes me laugh. Right now it's just a picture of the "You Can't Do That On Television" show intro. A little bit of nostalgia.

    Hey, Heater. Since you're into Muppets, check this out.

    Hahaha. I don't have sound at work, I'll have to wait until I get home. Some of it is quite freaky looking though.

    PS..I've wanted to make an R-rated Muppet short/movie for a while. I think it would be hilarious.

    Well then, Heater, have I got a movie for YOU!!
    Most of you know me as horror movie buff, and so I can remember about 10 years ago or so being at a friends house and watching a movie his older brother had called "Bad Taste." It's HILARIOUS and one of Peter Jackson's early unknown flicks. Right after he completed that, he put out a feature called "Meet The Feebles", which is freakin' HILARIOUS!! It's basically an R-rated/NC-17 rated Muppet movie. If you can come across it, you won't be sorry dude. Trust me!

    Half the fun is watching Meet the Feebles or Bad Taste and then watching the Frighteners or Lord of the rings trilogy to see just how far Peter Jackson has come with NO formal training!


    EDIT: It's not discontinued yet! Check it out!

    My current one is the rumoured Sens 3rd jersey. The one I wish they had... Shout out to the original Sens, a team that could actually win. Maybe this season would have been better if we had used these instead... Probably not. But excuses are kinda my thing, sooo...

    Previously I had Ruutu about to uppercut Jim Slater. I liked it because fans from other teams always say that Ruutu doesn't fight, and here he is laying into Slater.

    Then before that I had Bass beating on Kris Newbury. I love Cody Bass. I hate the Leafs. Pretty self explanatory there.

    And lastly, my first avatar, when I was under the nickname of Dirtydirtynorth, was Volchenkov demolishing Tyler Kennedy of the Pens. It was a picture taken in Sweden. Kennedy looks terribly uncomfortable and in pain in the picture.

    Don't know if you've played MGS4, but that game is absolutely stellar. Sadly it was my first Metal Gear Solid experience, and my friend had to explain a lot of the back story to me. The game in all took me about 40 hours to beat, so needless to say, extremely deep. It's really good.

    I finished the first one on PS1, then I bought the 3 pack for PS2 and haven't done it yet. I'll have to get back into it.

    Ha! I love those Peter Jackson movies, Cron! Another good one is "Dead Alive". It's along the lines of Bad Taste and Meet the Feebles. Another one of his great movies is Heavenly Creatures. One of Kate Winslet's first films. It's awesome.
