(Avatar in time of writing above)

Mine is an artist drawing of the character Torgo. He is a character in the movie "Manos the Hands of Fate", a movie that it typically called the worst movie ever made. His job is to "take care of the place while the master is away". This "master" guy is an undead guy who apparently is some leader to a cult. Torgo is supposed to do whatever the "master" wants. He lets these people who got lost somehow into the "master's" place even though the "master" doesn't like that. He later "dies" because of it (I say "dies" because it is unclear if he actually dies).

The three things people remember Torgo for is the way he speaks, his large legs, and his silly theme music (Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0s9OC6rzAA). He had the large legs because he was supposed to be a satyr, but the actor wore his leg braces the wrong way. Torgo was made famous through Mystery Science Theater 3000, which is a show that makes fun of really bad B movies. There are some fans that make drawings, action figures and whatnot of Torgo. I found one of these drawings on google images and edited it to what you see today.

Mine is Gamera. Giant turtle and hero of Japan, with vague origins except that we can figure he came from Atlantis in some way or form.
Gamera is called "Friend of Children". This is mostly because his adventures usually involved rescuing young children. Now, as you can see, Gamera is holding a child in my avatar, a perfect representation of the giant turtle. The title going with it only serves to accentuate the message behind the avatar, that Gamera is a friend to children, and is a kind, loving, self-sacrificing soul willing to help those he cares for deeply.

Back in the mid to late 60s, ABC ran an American Beatles cartoon with individual episodes, which lasted around 5-6 minutes each, being centered around one of the Beatles' songs. This particular image comes from the "Day Tripper" episode, in which a space alien, disguised as a women, manages to lure the Fab Four on her spaceship and leaves them stranded on a far away planet. This right here will take you to the point in the short from which my picture comes from.

It's a pretty fun game, plays nice, and I just love the pixelated classic style.

I have now updated my avatar to Reisen Udongein Inaba, a boss from Touhou 8: Imperishable Night. After JEV3 introduced me to Perfect Cherry Blossom, I've been absolutely loving the Touhou series.

I'm depressed/physically non-emotional and have a huge desire to learn the piano as an emotional outlet because of so.

I have to say you have a great taste in games, and the avatar itself is pretty damn neat.


Mine? A part of my webcomic. I just have to love the Link's Awakening reference.

Because This was a triumph
I'm making a note here
HUGE SUCCESS
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction
Aperture Science

we do what we must because we can
for the good of all of us except for the ones who are dead
but there's no sense crying over every mistake
you just keep on trying until you run out of cake
and the science gets done and you make a neat gun
for the people who are still alive

I'm not even angry
I'm being so sincere right now
even though you broke my heart and killed me
and torn into pieces
and threw every piece into a fire
as they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a wonderful line
and we're out of beta, we're releasing on time
so I'm glad I got burned
Think of all the things we learned for the people that are still alive

go ahead and leave me
I think I prefer to stay inside
maybe you'll find someone else to help you
maybe black mesa
that was a joke, haha, fat chance
anyway this cake is great, it's so delicious and moist
look at me still talking, when there's science to do
when I look out there it makes me glad I'm not you
I've experiments to run, there is research to be done
on the people who are still alive

and believe me I am still alive
I'm doing science and I'm still alive
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive
While you are dying I'll be still alive
and when you're dead I'll be still alive
STILL ALIVE, still alive

His avatar for those wondering is literally the logo for Aperture Science. They play a huge part in the game of Portal. Probably why he had to post the whole song...
So, was someone a little fast on the ban trigger today for this, or was it elsewhere he got banned for? :P
