The story behind my avatar is that I've decided to put last year behind and use an avatar that reflects the Mick Avory era and his way of thinking. I've also decided to take it one step farther and was inspired by those pictures where each Kink was holding up an alarm clock that was their favourite colour.

Mine is a crop from this piece by Jonathon Earl Bowser.
He's got his own interpretation, but for me I chose it because water represents emotion and ATM mine is tumultuous. The woman walking in the midst of it is taming the wild waters, and that's exactly what I'm attempting to do for myself. _________________ Do you bury me when I'm gone?

The story behind my avatar is that it's a Billy Idol CD cover it's The Very Best of Billy Idol: Idolize Yourself the CD with all his greatest hits! That's the CD cover that goes everywhere with me! _________________ Stephanie Idol

Mine is of my favorite cartoon, although back in the 90's I didn't watch a whole lot of it. Now that I rediscovered it, the show brings back a lot of good memories for me. _________________ " Tetris: The game that teaches you that mistakes pile up, and achievements disappear. "
I was trying to think of a good avatar to replace my old one. I remembered seeing those "hipster Ariel" images via Google, and I thought that one of those would make a cool avatar. _________________ What fresh hell is this?
Mine is Morph. He is a plasticine character from an 80s art show for children, with the wonderful Tony Hart. It started out with just him, living in a pencil box, then his mate Chas arrived, and a whole family of other characters, and he got his own TV show.
