That's a great picture, dude!
I'll stick with my pre-made one from years past. Obey the fist!
Here Aki, I did one with the original pic
Choose whichever you feel describes me as a person...
Thanks! I figured this year I'd look decent.
I'm trying so hard though :<
Like the photo, Drew, but the green star is detracting from the tassel on that totally awesome hat. Could you just take that one off? (FIXED)
Hmm, mixed feelings on the "peepswiddaband" photos. It is a bit of a distraction trying to find the forum face amidst a group shot, but with a single person, easier. As for the purpose, the poster is mainly to help us all put faces to the names in the forum, but it also gives us a bit of a chance to "show off" too; show off our sexy side, our silly side, our metal side, etc.
I just realized, since I do the poster, I never post a photo in the thread, limiting my chance to show off a little. Hmm, which side do I want to show? Ah, how about some metal. Those of you on my Facebook page have seen this, but for those who haven't I'd love to show you my new metal:
Now if that ain't metal, I don't know what is.
But no, that's not going on the poster, but for those of you who don't know me, I'll be the short, blond in the sexy outfits wearing big clunky sports shoes, probably drinking a beer. Cheers!
Nice photo!! I just got back from London about 3 weeks ago, but it was quite a whirlwind trip. Next time, I will definitely build in a little more time to chill. I did visit Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park on a Sunday, which was a hoot!
LOL - This was my first overseas trip, so 3 down, about 100 to go! (And I had to pay 2 Euros for one of them at the Tourist Office in Lichtenstein! ) The good news is that border crossings are pretty easy between most of the EU countries...but the bad news is you get fewer stamps!
I actually enjoy seeing pics of fans striking a metal pose with their favorite bands...as long as it's easy to pick the forum folks out of the crowd.
What did you think of London? I wasn't impressed. Bad food, shit weather (even in summer) and higher prices than even NYC. I wouldn't go back.
Where were you eating in London? Everywhere my mom and I ate, the food was fantastic! Even the pub food was really very good. Incredibly fattening, but good. In fact, we even had nice weather while we were there...
I had exactly the opposite opinion! In fact, I just re-did my monthly budget to start saving for another London trip! (I want to visit Vienna as well).
I agree 100% about the expense
and I didnt think the food wasnt that spectacular
but I loved the architecture, the history, the tradition, the performing arts, the ease of getting around on the Tube, and, of course, the cool British accents.
They actually had unseasonably HOT weather while I was there. I made the trip to attend Wimbledon
this was the first year theyve had the retractable roof in operation for Centre Court, and they only had one 20-minute rain delay the entire two weeks. I suppose I might have a different opinion of the city if Id gotten rained on for a solid week!
I know this wasnt directed at me but I was in London back in 2006, and I cant agree enough about the "bad food" comment. Good Lord their beef/meat is fucking horrendous! Only decent thing I could find was Pizza......LOL.
I wasnt all that impressed myself but I really didnt get time to enjoy it. I was traveling with Pagan's Mind on their UK mini tour with PowerQuest at the time, and we were in and out of a bunch of places in just 1 day.
Historically I think it was pretty interesting to visit UK especially since I live in "New England" here in the States but overall I wasnt that impressed. The prices were outrageous as you mentioned too.
I did enjoy places like Salisbury though. Seeing Stonehenge in person was fascinating!
Weather was complete SHIT. Rained everyday at some point or another.
MIND THE GAP!
btw, im not doing the poster, i was just asking if we were gonna do one....sorry for the crossed wires
AMBR, I can't remember which pic(s) you used of me last year, but just go with the same one(s). Much like Dr. Zarkov in Flash Gordon, "I haven't changed."
That's a joke right? (edited for foul language )))
Just my thoughts.
Hey Ambr, what's the cut off date this year? Need to get you a picture.
That's cool. Hope you have a great time when you get back.
Dude, your faith in my organizational abilities is misplaced.
Let me see if I can find it.
Hadn't thought about a deadline, but really should set one. Let's make it August 31 so I have time to get it done and printed. I've already placed all the photos that have been posted, and the poster isn't even 1/3 full, so let's get some more photos!! (Or I'll have to blow all of them up to super size - that is a threat! )
As I was looking at the pics in the thread this year (quit reading because of all the off-topic junk) I kept thinking, "These people must not want to be recognized." Most people have great pictures, but others will be crap for helping to recognize somebody from the boards, especially when you consider that these pictures will be fairly small and surrounded by a ton of other pictures of people you don't know.
