Title: Pictures of Your Forum Peeps
Post by: Tym on June 21, 2012, 02:14:15 PM
I’ve seen a few forums where they had a thread where the members post a picture of themselves, and it worked out pretty well, so I thought we should include it on this. So, let’s give it a go.
Just a few quick rules that are fairly self explanatory.

No vulgar, racist, or any comments with intent to insult are allowed.
 
Also, the picture has to be of you, and you should be careful of posting a picture with anybody who does not know you are posting a picture with them in it online and...that’s about it.

If anybody’s got any other rules, I can edit it to include them, if you’d like? :)

I’ll take the plunge and post a picture of myself.    ;D

I don't think you need to worry about any of the stuff you warned against at the start - we are pretty friendly ;) Most people know what I look like - but here is me rocking a Fantasy-Faction T-Shirt:

Ha, how convenient, I got this pic taken the other night because that Martin Lawrence fella reckoned my article demanded it ;)

Also, one where I'm not hidden behind half a tonne of brass, so my derpy face is visible:

Nope, that's not a thing here. Not sure if it was meant in a funny way, @Nora?
I found it a bit insulting, especially because showing a pic of yourself on the internet makes you vulnerable in a way and should be appreciated. Saying something mean/weird in response is bad form.

Having said this, I don't think this (bad) joke needs to be blown out of proportion.

Post by: Nora on April 21, 2017, 11:47:45 PM
OMG, I'm so sorry, this came across not at all as I was thinking it, and came back to the forum tonight completely surprised by the reaction, as I totally didn't think forward enough.

I was actually totally impressed : I've often worn 'Mohawk' style aircut with sides buzzed myself, but I have super curly hair, so never bother even straightening it out, and my first reaction was to think "Whoooaa, I wonder what kind of gel/how much gel you need to make such a perfect straight line with so much hair?!"
So I was impressed, actually curious, but just followed that own private and unexplained train of thought and went for the greasy joke.
Totally not how I intended it, though I can see how backwards it was re-reading it now! I'm so sorry I didn't explain myself better (and went for a rude joke instead). I'm very far from being opposed or mocking, I've dyed my hair, cut it all sorts of shapes, shaved my head clean off, worn braids and indian braids, and admire people who have the time and patience to get to more extreme looks.
Hair is one of the very few areas I like to play with with some degree of vanity. I don't wear make-up, I don't paint my nails, I don't groom myself like a woman... But I'll happily invest in my hair once in a while for a good cut, and play with it.
I mean, when my mom had me, she used to wear her hair as two buns, one on each side of her skull, and wear panties as hats, with the leg holes to fit the buns. Then she dyed it orange and wore a sikh turban for months. When I was in my teens she shaved her head and wore fake butterfly tattoos all over her skull. Your hairstyle is almost mainstream compared to what my mom raised me up rocking.

So, deepest apologies if I made you feel like I was angling this as an insult, it was just a dark, raw joke.

This being said, I still am curious as to the amount of gel (or a special product?) that you use to make such a tall spike. I mean, I've seen plenty of punk haircuts with different lengths and colours, but I've never seen anyone get one so impressively tall and tidy. I'm genuinely curious. I'm also curious as to what it look like if you braided it all in Viking style, as I find it a great look.

Nah? Never seen a man rocking this style, which is a shame.

Back-combing and hairspray: gel is only to get it to stick together. You'd struggle to achieve the spike with gel alone, it would weigh too much.

As for my reaction: it wasn't the comment on my hair that surprised/bothered me so much as the apparent assumption that I do drugs (which I don't, and never have - which may partially be attributed to working for a homelessness charity for thirteen years and seeing the real bad side of them, but that's another story). I was completely perplexed at where the reference to me doing coke came from. I still can't say I understand what you actually meant, but I now understand you meant no harm by it, so fair enough!

Oh! That's because of the joke that goes: *you receive pettiest of petty change, or make a super tiny saving* (optionally *proceed to jokingly say you don't need such peanuts*) - *typical answer about how much [insert drug] and [insert stripper/gigolo] you could pay for with all this*

A: pff, I don't need all that copper change, look at that.
B: Damn, don't be stupid, imagine how much coke you'd be able to buy with this much!
A: [strangled chuckle]

Drugs are expensive – I don't do them either, funnily enough, mostly because I don't get the point and would rather put the expense in other sources of adrenaline/sensations – so any expense, very dear or very small, can be associated with [any class A drug]. That's the thing, I could have said anything expensive, but I usually go for a drug, mostly because it rings harsher coming from my petite frame and gets more laughs, and also because it's the first thing that comes to mind (I did say my humour was crude, I was not joking).

The lesson here probably is to keep the higher level caustic remarks for people I know better/who know me better. And maybe off the forum altogether.  :-X  ::)
I definitely didn't mean to insinuate you do any drugs!

On a hair point of view, I had to google what back combing was. It is because I have thick curls that I've never heard of this?? I didn't know it was a thing. I guess from the girl's pics that it's to obtain volume... and since my hair history has been to combat volume, it's probably what's up with that.
It's pretty counter intuitive that the action of back-combing would actually lift your hair. I learned a new thing.

This back comb and gel convo made me laugh, Nora and Mike. This is exactly my every Saturday night in the Sixties. How embarrassing. Back combed to the max and sprayed hard as wood. But blonder.  :-[

And skirt four whole inches above knees.  Sin, shame. ;D ;D  Happy days, fab fun.

Okay that made me laugh... but hey, whatever was in fashion in the day, right?
What I find funniest is when you compare your average conservative grandma, with footages of what a good wartime party could look like :

And you realise that the same granny who gives you a hard time for only wearing jeans might well have flashed her dancing panties to the world. Haircut is a bit the same. Things change, but I sort of never readily associate the old pictures with the people in front of me. Really @Lady_Ty if you have pictures of you at the time, here is the place to share it!!  8)

I did giggle at @Nora comment. I think mainly cos it was so random!

But @Mike Brooks you look fantastic! Hair and redness! My hair is spiky but in a more discreet Tintin style manner. I've worn it in that manner for so long that would be too hard to change now. And the money spent on gel is barely noticeable. I buy  tub once every couple of months. Might pay for an extra portion of chips once in a while.

It shows. I'd seriously love to see if there's more to the outfit. That would be the perfect get up to terrorize hobbits at work, and you could go around picking up peoples' rings and reciting the "One Ring to rule them all" poem.  ;D

I met Marc Singer at DragonCon a couple years back (along with a bunch of other stars from 80s, 90s, etc.), and I said I loved him in Beast Master and he asked me what I liked about it, and I was like "You swinging that sword!" I felt a bit foolish, but in my defense "Your nuanced portrayal of a 2D warrior with a tiger!!" wasn't really an option.

one of my new friends i met last weekend!

she was a very nice friend of robin's (helping her with conventions and stuff) and she used to live in san diego.  we chatted for a bit and she offered to take photos for me.  she just kept mashing the camera button, so i have 20 or 30 photos of me randomly waving my hands about, fangirling and such over robin hobb.

truly, they would make a pretty hilarious flipbook.
