We've been beating around the bush long enough. We've got a "How'd you hear of Axiom" thread and an "Explain your usename" thread. It's about time we had a "What do you look like" thread.

Post a mugshot if ya want... And please. Keep your clothes on.

Re: Are you brave enough to reveal your face? - 11/04/03 10:46 PM

For your pic... under your name
click My Home ... click on Edit "Personal information, email, password, etc"
under "Your Picture (Entire URL - Picture size is 65x75 pixels)" enter a website where you have a GIF file. Remeber the size constraint.
So anyone that has web server with pictures on it one can reference that location...for instance mine is "http://www.spacelofts.com/badcrash.gif"

Try this one and put it in your settings:
http://www.spacelofts.com/scbbb.gif

For inserting image in this forum just place the <.image>http://www.spacelofts.com/scbbb.gif<./image> tag

Take the dots out between the brackets where you see image and /image. That is for illustration only.

Uh-huh...

When exactly did it become "hip" for men to carry around purses? Seriously. I don't have an issue with it, and in fact, think sometimes it looks pretty cool, but when did that happen? I know not long ago, if a guy was carrying around a big ole "man purse", he'd been laughed out of town. Now it's hip. Fashion. Go figure.


Posted by: sidvicious02

Re: Are you brave enough to reveal your face? - 12/23/03 11:59 AM

i maybe shouldn't have made a joke about it, it's actually my camera case. I'm sure I'll be forever-branded in the Axiom community as the purse-wearing nancy-boy!

I do agree with you Craig, there's an awful lot of men out there using carry-alls that look suspiciously like purses to me. It does seem to be the more fashionable stores that carry them and the more fashionable people that wear them. I still haven't seen anyone wearing a purse and a ripped Iron Maiden t-shirt yet...

Like I said, I think it's pretty cool. It's just a strange progression for from something to go from being so totally unhip, to becoming the fashionable trend.

I few guys here at work carry man-purses. I've never been hip. Hell, I collect comic book art, and love fantasy movies. Geek to the core.

Peter,

Thanks for bringing pointing out this thread. I thought it was great to put faces to several familiar names, including yours. We've added many new posters (including me. So, I thought I'd see if we can't get more people to post photos. I'll take the first plunge.

Hey chess, speaking of pictures...... I might also point out that Jack, Curtis and I dove in tonight, but there is plenty of room left for more pictures (hint, hint).

Curtis, really cute kids - enjoy them now because they grow up and leave pretty quick. I assume Mike was talking about your kids and not mine . It's interesting that daughters turn systems on early in life and then spend the rest of their lives turning our systems off and stifling toy proliferation.

John, I am, in fact, sometimes accused of being somewhat balding. I prefer to think of it as having extra forehead - ALOT of extra forehead.

I made the website mostly for my parents and distant relatives, but it's great to go back and look at how small and "scrunchy-faced" he was.

My parents still haven't met him in person, though they will this May.

What, you don't name your turkeys every year?

I admit, the concept was foreign to me, too, until I met my wife. It's family tradition. What's even more interesting is that before Steven was born, we called him Zeus. Naming the turkey Zeus and then eating it was our way of killing off that particular nickname.

Hey Pete,

Your website kind of reminds me when my first son was born. My wife told me I was so disappointed because he looked sort of like ET, since that movie was very popular at the time. After about six weeks he became much cuter and was the apple of his Daddy's eye. Now, he's 21, is talking about buying a house. I don't know where the time went. I feel like I'm on Golden Pond. Just a little bittersweet humor.

nice website peter.

i tried that when isabel was first born. I'm not a web designer and relegated myself to using word (yeah, i know)... Was a pain to update the website (hosted by Pac Bell DSL) and it went by wayside after a few months. More power to you if you can keep it up long term. The photo album from SBC Yahoo is much quicker for me, though not as visually impressive.

Posted by: Ajax

Re: Are you brave enough to reveal your face? - 04/19/04 08:32 AM

Yeah, well, right now he thinks you know everything. He'll reach a point where, for the first time, he'll catch you in a mistake, or an untruth (for me it was when my father told me a stop sign had six sides, and hollered me down when I said it was eight).

From that point on, until he's in his twenties, he'll figure you don't know anything and everything you say is fulla crap (this is the challenging time). At the aforementioned point in his twenties, he'll suddenly be amazed at how much you've learned in just a few years , and hopefully, things will smooth out a little.

scotta- if you are using photobucket(and it looks like you are), just cut and paste the 'tag' line, and it will be there..

if you notice, when you put a picture in photobucket, underneath it, there will be several formats to choose from.. one is an http, then a jpeg, and then a tag.. cut and paste the tag line, and it will be there.. you wont have to put [image ] in front or back of it..

Nice to have another "old" guy on the forum to take some of the heat off Ray and me. (Watch! It'll turn out he's 32 years old, and I'll have put my size 11 in my mouth...............again.

In reply to:

Here's my "stoned" look.




Speaking of being stoned:

The Monkey

A monkey is sitting in a tree smoking a joint when a lizard walks past and looks up and says to the monkey "hey! what are you doing?" The monkey says "smoking a joint, come up and have some." So the lizard climbs up and sits next to the monkey and they have a few joints. After a while the lizard says his mouth is 'dry' and is going to get a drink from the river. The lizard is so stoned that he leans too far over and falls into the river.

A Crocodile sees this and swims over to the lizard and helps him to the side, then asks the lizard, "what's the matter with you?" The lizard explains to the crocodile that he was sitting smoking a joint with the monkey in the tree, got too stoned and then fell into the river while taking a drink.

The crocodile says he has to check this out and walks into the jungle, finds the tree were the monkey is sitting, finishing a joint, and he looks up and says "hey!" the Monkey looks down and says, "&%$@.......how much water did you drink?!!"

I saw that lineup back in November 2001 at the Ryman - incredible show. John has an annual benefit show (John Hiatt Fund) that usually goes to help some sort of addiction/rehab facility. Each of those guys is amazing on his own, and the roundtable format is even better. They'll just be sitting on their stools all night trading songs, and you'll likely be entranced. Have a great time!

Yeah Ashley I know what you mean about the compressed avatar. It looked fine on photobucket but when I transferred it over to the axiom board she got squished. I'll try reducing the number of pixels in photoshop and see what happens.

Oh, her name is Anna Faris. Small time movie actress. Appeared in Scary Movie, The Hot Chick and Lost in translation among other things. She's not a bombshell in my opinion but does have that certain look that just does it for me, if you know what i mean.

Problem is that your picture is 75 pixels wide and 65 pixels high (actually 64), but what you need for an avatar here is 65 wide and 75 high.

You may try again.

I just picked up three Sigma EX lenses in the last three weeks: 12-24, 24-70 F/2.8 and the 70-200 F/2.8 for use with a new Canon 350XT.

I'm slooooowly getting back into photography again... which was difficult to do after selling all my 35, 2 1/4 , 4x5 , darkroom and studio flash equipment several years ago!

Our little family photo from June:


From Left to Right:
Ian, Jean-Claude (JC), Alan, Tom Cumberland, Jean, Steve Dove, Brent, and Joe. I'm the one holding the camera.

Re: Family Photo - 07/06/05 11:27 AM

Next time get Alan to hold the camera. I've already seen pictures of him, and I have a sneaking suspicion I'd much rather see one of you than another of him.

Re: Family Photo - 07/06/05 11:45 AM

Or use a tripod and an auto timer to have the "entire" Axiom family in the picture...

I agree with Jack on having you in the picture although Alan looks a bit different than the image used for his avatar...Like the "Einstein look" better...

You know, you got me thinking about that. I had just laughed it off as funny, i.e., "Stupid dog, doesn't know it just ripped one."

But what if the dog was just acting?

Man, I just ripped one! Quick! Better jump up and pretend like I just got startled by a weird noise so that maybe they'll think that someone else did it!

Now if I ever caught that on tape, I'd be in business.

Nice family picture, it's funny in my mind I've always envisioned you with long hair or a mullet...not sure why.

It's nice to put faces to the people you see on the board after a few years. It's funny some of the pictures you (at least me) come up with in your mind for people.

Hubbard Glacier up in Alaska.

We couldn't get very close as it was a particularly bad year for ice when we were there It was one of the big things I was looking forward to. It was still a beautiful day and incredible trip. Highly recommended.

Yeah, that's weird cuz the photo I posted is still in my photobucket account. I wonder if photobucket changed the urls during some sort of upgrade. Well, here is the photo, of this grizzled veteran, I posted way back when.

LOL My favorite is when they come home with their date, I inquire how was the baseball game ---- Being a single parent I have always been open with the girls ----- The young lad would say we didn't go to a baseball game but the girls would blush and say DAD!!!! knowing that now they would have to explain to their date that I wanted to know what base they made it to. Sometimes I never see the young lad again - go figure \:D

My now-father-in-law pulled a similar stunt the first time I picked up his daughter from his house for a date. The difference was that I won the intimidation battle. He greeted me at the door carrying an old Ithica 12 ga. Not only did I not flintch, I was able to show him features of his shotgun he wasn't aware of - he didn't use the thing - so his little ploy didn't phase me. What he didn't understand was that I had a small arsenal, did all my own reloading and had shot trap and skeet competitively for years.

I picked up a little saying a few years back and now that I am the father of a daughter, I will probable get a chance to use it: "I have a shotgun and a shovel and I know how to use both... She'll be back by 10PM, right?"
