No, dont change it - it's perfect - Dr Z is always pretty despondent :lol: :lol: :lol:

I might look for Fry and we could start up a Keats-Futurama appreciation society :roll:

Monroe Doctrine would definitely be Bender :wink:

Yeah, i'm going to have to use the linking thing as well. I spent ages shrinking the Bolan picture though :x

Holy crap.

It's not a contest you know...

I seem to recall Thilo saying something about having to disable the avatar function on his Rilke site, because the users found it distracting. Can't imagine why.

Although I guess, if avatar size was proportional to the number of posts, you're right on target :)

Hey Steph J, why are there two people in your picture? Which one are you?

Yeah they really distract from the incisive and fascinating debates going on all the time here :roll: :roll:

Come on - having avatars will give this site a kick up the whatsit and give something to look at - it can all get very dry and humnourless here sometimes being all so "literary" and high-brow :lol:

:D My avatar is an early image of T.Rex- thats Marc Bolan on the left (he is king) and Mickey Finn, his bongos player, on the right.
Bolan was killed by a tree in 1977 :cry:

Anyway, a photo of me can be found here, along with interesting (?!) facts about me:

:D indeed, they weren't.

Marc's girlfriend (Gloria Jones) was driving the car and it swerved on the road and rammed into a tree. He died instantly, but Gloria's still alive, and they had a son called Rolan Bolan :)
