Oftentimes, when I read posts made by certain people on here, I look towards their avatar and think, "Is that what they sound like?"

For instance, when I read TheInfrequentVisitor's posts, somehow I hear Rod Serling's voice in my head. Likewise for Dark Lord of the Sith Colin, I hear Darth Vader.

Now some avatars are a bit tricky, especially when they don't match anyone in particular. Take mine for instance. It's a group shot of the Citizens of Hollywood, and yet I'm only one person, not a whole group. Would that mean that you can hear the Citizens all talking in perfect unison?

Of course, this whole theory negates itself when I actually meet someone and see or hear them, then I imagine that voice speaking while I read their posts.

I hope this all makes sense, because it is late, and I should be getting to bed soon.

I like it...

Actually I associate most people with their avatars and screen names. (Duh)... but when I meet them in person or here there voices in a program like teamspeak it shatters the image. It isn't dissapointing per se... but some of the magic of the internet is lost. I really like when someone can pick an avatar and a screen name and be who they are on the internet.

Once you shatter the fourth wall... well... there aint no going back. Hu hu (thats my mickey tag... you know... in case you picture me sounding like mickey).

That being said... I do a dead on Mickey Mouse. At least... thats what I am told.

I am afraid of Rodders' avatar. If you look at it too long, your brain will turn to mush :rolleyes:

When I see Quickgold's avatar I think of Matt stumbling through a complicated place name like Wigan :rolleyes:

Look at my signature and imagine Steven Tyler screaming at the beginning of the ride. That's what I sound like. :rolleyes:
