    TBH I've imagined you as Tycho played by Robert Downey Jr. Frankly I haven't a clue as to why.


    What was up with the Ariel gimmick? I sense there was some sort of hidden message there. Did you go through a hoarding phase?

    You've changed your avatar often enough that yes, you're a chibi-Jawa-thing. In contrast to Gorefiend who posted as pimp-hat Hutt for so long I can't think of him as anything else.
    You are angst. Unleashed.

    Both of those seem equally plausible...

    Monument Plaza isn't your local shopping mall. It's more akin to the Champs Élysées -- the Manarai is the finest and most exclusive restaurant in the galaxy (SotE SB). Proles aren't even allowed to befoul its air.

    edit: I am actually quite fond of both of those icons. This one is more patriotic and bombastic, while Monument Plaza has more elegance and history.

    Fascinating. I must admit, I am somewhat prone to this same illogical activity.

    This is partly why I had that Z-95 Headhunter avatar for so long. For me, at least, imagining users as their avatars happens less when their avatar is an inanimate object.

    Though I am curious ... why the black suit and convention stand?

    CEOs are still office drones. Actually, they're worse.

    That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me. Guys, you're all to imagine me as RDJ from now on--it's Coffee-Canon.

    PS, I still picture you as Barriss, even though your icons have been kind of all over the place lately.

    CEOs? I said that proletarians weren't allowed in.

    I'm okay with being Shockwave, I suppose. It is better than being pretty much any other Transformer, considering that I basically created Grimlock.

    So am I the bear, the maiden fair, a maimed knight, or a tourney sword?

    I'll let you all decide.

    And suggest that Lugija look away...

    This is another thing of which I have heard only the title and nothing else. So I will predict that it is part of a mummer's show for kids that Tyrion has organized now that he has nothing else to do. Varys plays the bear.

    I don't have any decent avatars, hence the Rogue Squadron crest.

    I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty
    I've got whozits and whatzits galore
    You want thingamabobs?
    I've got twenty.

    Nah, I think I was just singing that song a lot at the time. Yeah, I sing sometimes. Poorly. I like to get really into it, like so enthusiastic, like adults on kids shows singing with a big smile nailed into their face. I try to put on a performance.

    Imagine me singing this totally seriously: (picture Lo Pan if you want, we could be twins)

    I want to be where the people are
    I wanna see, want to see them dancing
    Walking around on those
    What do you call them? Oh. Feet.

    Plus I liked the way she was just staring at you.

    Edit: Now I'm going to have to listen to that song. And "Kiss the Girl".

    Sebastian opens the song by summarizing my feelings about cartoon intros.

    First, we got to create.....da mooooood.
    Percussion. Strings. Winds. Words.

    I know the words to that song by heart... in Spanish. They made us learn the song, and it became seared into my brain.

    It's not even the best song in the movie, nor even the best of the 90s Disney films!

    ... dude, Ariel's a kid. wtf :p

    Partly because it came out in '89.

    You know, I was going to put "Disney Renaissance" films and settled on 90s because it was shorter. But heavens know that being brief is just asking for trouble.

    When Little Mermaid came out on VHS, my best friend in high school got it and told me I had to come watch it with him, like, now. "You've got to see these frogs. They're on the oars singing, the oars go under water and come back out and the frogs are still singing."

    I love that movie, and the soundtrack.

    CooperTFN : What do you mean? "Le poisson, le poisson, how I love le poisson..." I used to sing that one to my cats.
