What is the reason you chose your Avatar?
« on: May 09, 2006, 11:56:41 am »
I enjoy the little pics people have & sometimes have wondered why they were chosen?  Although I am more of an Ennis, I love Jack's 'effort' with life.

My favorite quote, used by Jack as reassurance to Ennis twice in the film (before the 2nd tent scene & when Ennis collapses during the lake confrontation), is "It's alright; s' alright".

And so, I love the picture of Jack, bruised, somewhat rejected, yet still making an effort by wisfully asking, "You goina do this again next summer?"

How about yours?

Mine clearly has nothing to do with brokeback.... I guess I just wanted to display a young sexy david bowie in all of his glory  ::) Ahhh I love me some Bowie....
‘cause the truth is, I already give him everythin’ I got to give, more than I ever even knew I had; ‘n it all for him, all of it, him who is my brother, my father, my child, my friend, my lover, my heart, my soul; my Ennis.

'Cause it's just gorgeous, and so reminiscent of the beginning and ending scenes of the Ennis riding in a truck down the mountain as the sunlight begins to change.

I wanted a picture of Ennis, because I like to see him whenever I can. But I am inept with photo stuff, so when I  finally took the time to figure out how to do an avatar, I just grabbed the first beautiful Ennis picture (redundant phrase!) I could find, which was on a message that Julie posted. There are probably some I would like even better, such as the one in the upper left corner of chefjudy's avatar. But this one was handy and it certainly meets my standards for beauty!

Because all the others I tried came out too tiny and dark.  This (the tree and sunset one, for posterity, after I've moved on to another) was the first one I was satisfied with.  And it reminds me of us (the branches), and nature (Our Film), and the beautiful melancholy of sunset (Our Film's tender, sweet yet tragic blissfulness).  Something like that.

Love it.

And latjoreme - That is one of my favorite Ennis pics - probably cause that is where Jack is saying, "It's alright..."

I chose one of Jack because he's come to represent all that is good to me in this world.  He's not  perfect, of course, but he's passionate, open, optimistic, and unafraid.  I chose this particular shot of him first because I love this shot from the movie - when he looks down on second thought rather than approach and introduce himself to Ennis when Ennis isn't ready, and second because I love the composition - I love the way the various shades of blue in the background meet the black of his hat and eyebrows and lashes and the white of his face and then come full circle with the blue of his shirt.  Makes me think of that Kenny Wayne Shepherd (ironic, ain't it?) song called "Blue on Black" ("Blue on black, tears on a river, push on a shove, it don't mean much.  Joker on jack, match on a fire, cold on ice, a deadman's touch.  Whisper on a scream doesn't change a thing, doesn't bring you back - blue on black.")

I chose this pic because I love it basically. I love the way they're intertwined and (although this doesn't have much relevance) I love how it was inspired by the picture from Titanic. I was looking for picture to go with "Youth is watsed on the Young..." and it was either this or one of them fighting (which would have reinforced how youth is wasted on the young) but I decided to go for the slightly happier picture.

I liked this avatar 'cause its an image from a scene which was cut. Its from the "Ennis and Jack encounter the hippies" scene. In the full size pic you can see the hippies in the background.

My story isnt as interesting as some of yours. I have been on Phil's Bettermost since around the 2nd week it started. I didnt have an avatar/pic because I could barely admit I saw the Mountain. I have had a rough time this year so far with lots of stuff in my head about what the film said to me and then a car wreck and now figurin myself out all from a state like Idaho which is about as closed as you can be to different thinking about stuff. I am now brave enough to put my pic up as an avatar here because Im not afraid anymore. I still dont know exactly who I am inside but at least I am thinking about it for the first time ever in my whole life!! I cant believe I am so different after a movie. I have done more crying about things this year than I have done my whole entire life. You folks may not know how much this place is important to me because without it I'd still be the shuffling around in my life going nowhere.

So now I can put my pic up here cuz I know I am with my buds (heh Phil hates that word so I can say friends too!!)

Sorry, LJ, just ran across this.  Yes, I went 2 or 3 times, I saw the second to last showing of BBM in Seattle.

Hey IdahoLonely, I love the word "Buds," and love when Ennis uses it in the film.  Glad you're here.  Glad I'm here.

That's all wonderful and I am so happy for you!  The movie is real powerful!  I'm 57, I came at at 29, and after seing BBM eight times in the theater, I STILL cry each time I see it and sometime when I just listen to the music!

I like your picture, with that great hat.

I chose my avatar because of HEATH!! I am also definitely more an Ennis than a Jack.

Then I started becoming more and more a Jake fan, rather than a Heath fan, but I came back 180° to Heath, after I got the results from celebmatch.com!  :laugh: 

So after trying about 5 or 6 different avatars, this one stuck.

Well, I guess it's because it's always been by avatar for all kinds of different boards and also for Messenger. One day I was looking on the net for BBM pictures and then, like a beacon of light it shone out. I guess there are better pictures, but I'm just so used to it. One day I changed it for another picture of Jake G. and it just looked wrong. :( So it stayed.  ;D

I like Jake's expression........  strikes me as, "are you kidding me?" or, "yeah, right........" or, "is that sort of behavior really necessary?"

I think stuff like that in my head about a thousand times a day.

Gosh, I hadn't read this thread in over a year.  I've had a lot of avatars under the bridge in that time.  :)

Hey Judy! You still pop up in my AIM whenever you are on line so I always feel you are near.

This is my second avatar. I am looking for a new one and my choice will always be of Ennis and Jack because they are what brought me here. I have to honor that.

     Because I come from the land of volcanos.  I think this is a beautiful pic of
       Mount St. Helens.  My middle name is Helen.
        And because it reminds me of the lake scene

JACK'S PANTS -

%% What's to explain?!%%   :laugh:

Okay, okay....  I specifically cropped this image to accompany me in my role as 'JACK'S PANTS' on our Performance Thread, and...well...  does anyone NOT like it?  ;)     Those muscular thighs.... Wranglers wrapped tightly around every curve and bulge..... hands cockily placed on hips......   

Let's take a closer look, shall we?

I have had a couple of avatars now. The newest one is something my little daughter made in her Kindergarten: an owl, stiched on cardboard. The original is glued to the cupboard next to my desk. Well, you know my special affiliation with owls, dont'cha?

All hail the PT for inspiring such avatars!  Melinda and Anke, yours rock!  8)

Much as I love the HP, though, I think I'll always have my Ennis avatar, being an Ennisite and Heathen forever and aye.  :)

I once was deeply and madly in love with dead Dean.. I was 13/14 at the time and had seen all his major films by then..

Haven't seen any of his films in years, but his bio-film, which shed even more light into his way of life.

I will never change mine because it's red. If I'm looking for my last post on a subject, I can quickly scan up or down a thread and it stands out.

Plus, it's of Ennis.  ;D

My current avatar is a sculpture of two frolicing horses that I bought at Goodwill. I light the candles around it at night on my little BBM altar, especially when the full moon is near.

My present avatar shows Alexander the Great in profile with the horns of Amon. The Greek underneath reads  "Alexander the Great."

2,400 years before Ennis & Jack, there was Alexander & Hephaestion.

Mmm....full moon? Altar? This sounds like a call for an esbat ritual!

Sorry, thought you would know what a esbat ritual is.  I've read in your past posts that you seem to a have had a passing interest in pagan/or Wicca. An Esbat ritual is a ritual concerning the phases of the moon in the Wicca religion. But it really wasn't a serious quote....no need for an esbat party! ;D
