Just Dave's picture

I thought I'd start a forum about profile pics, because I don't know what most of yours are.

So if you want, just post a little thing explaining what it is and why you chose it.

Ex. Mine is a dead cupid. I chose mine because it was valentines day and I was feeling rather sardonic.

My display picture on Oasis

My display picture on Oasis is a school of jellyfish.

They don't have brains or hearts... which inspires a certain amount of jealousy for me. All they know is how to eat and survive, they don't need anything else, they have nothing to worry about. No love affairs, no complicated drama. They symbolize going wherever life takes you - the current takes them wherever they go. On a personal level, it's also somewhat of an allusion to Lady Gaga, «he ate my heart and then he ate my brain», and to my own experiences with love associated with that lyric. They also look deceptively beautiful, but they can kill you. There's even a species of immortal jellyfish.

I don't usually think about things that much, by the way - it's because I'm thinking of getting a tattoo of a jellyfish. But I do have a strong interest in symbolism and such.

Oh, and I forgot, the light

Oh, and I forgot, the light makes them look multicolored, like a rainbow. You can figure out that part. ^^

...mine is a picture of me goofing off in class when i was supposed to be working :P it happened to be my AP Biology class and i stick out a lot in there...goofing off just happens to support my weirdness, childishness, and enjoyment of time in the most serious and conservative of all classes (especially since most of these peoples are way too serious about A's). i'm not too extreme with my immaturity, i know when to stop and be an adult, it's the only class i have to be an adult in.

Mine is just some random

Mine is just some random rainbowy stuff I did while playing around in a graphics program forever ago, I don't even remember how I did it. I've had it as my avatar for so long that I don't really want to change it, so I haven't changed it.

swimmerguy's picture

I wish I could tell you what mine was...

And who that guy is. But I truthfully don't remember, and I don't know if I ever knew anyway.
We had a project in 6th grade, where we had to do various things to various pictures in Paint Shop Pro. I saved some of those, and use them for Profile Pics.
It looks like some man, back to, maybe 50's, with a camera, taking a picture of some view.

ShowMeLove's picture


is of Spencer (and part of Ashley's face) from the TV show South of Nowhere. Cause Spencer's cute and was even cuter when with Ash. lol. And through the course of that show she dealt with her sexuality, questioned it, and eventually figured it out. I identify with her a lot. Plus, did I mention that she's cute??? lol.

By the way...

bookworm3x4, I came up with my name and then saw yours and was like "shit. I just created a name frighteningly similar to a preexisting name. I shall have to apologize." so. my apologies.
Also I like your avatar. Especially the water and the sky and the way the sun seems to be just barely touching your head and you appear to be looking at it.

Alyska's picture


Mine is a picture that my cousin took of me when I was lying under the pear tree in my neighbors yard, but she focused on a leaf instead of me so I'm blurred.
I kinda used it because I had already fit it to the icon standards for Deviant Art, and I was too lazy to do it again...

Mine is Emilie Autumn, she plays electric violin. Why? Because I love her.

It’s not like love at first sight, really. It’s more like… gravity moves. When you see her, suddenly it’s not the earth holding you here anymore. She does. And nothing matters more than her. And you would do anything for her, be anything for her…

mine is a picture

I took a few years ago of some kind of sparkler/firework that my brother and I set off on the 4th of July.

I picked it because I wanted something sparkly and golden, since my user-name is stardust. I may change it sometime though.

I always thought...

it looked like a Christmas tree with white lights on it. Out in the middle of nowhere. lol. Isn't it funny the things your mind makes up?

Currently, mine is a picture of a bunch of books I took when I was working on starting a book review website (I decided I needed to get one of my hacker friends to help me actually make a website that worked and then I forgot to ask any of them) but it's probably going to change soon. I don't like it very much.
