    Religion:
    Generally a bad idea
    Mine's the static on a TV off-channel. I find it oddly relaxing to stare at a TV like that. It captures how my mind will sometimes wander like a fading signal and disengage from what I should be doing.

    I suppose it's a religious metaphor of the results from when I tried to converse with God. Seemed all I ever got back was empty static ("no signal"), and I had to alter my beliefs to make sense of it.

    My new Avatar is the glorious Phoenix: for the Phoenix is an ancient symbol of rebirth, and I was reborn as Random here on RF after Godlike died.

    That's a really cool phoenix pic - I don't suppose you know where I could find a larger version of it? )(

    Sorry Bastet, I can't remember where I got it from. I think it was one of those specialist AV sites: google one or two and you might find it. Sorry I can't be of further help. :sorry1:

    I got into a kind of cold anti-human mood and changed my avatar to Agent Smith from the Matrix. It's fun being the villan.

    I change mine a lot, so this might not apply for too long.
    Right now it's a painting of the Hawaiian goddess Pele. I forget the artist, I have the page bookmarked somewhere.
    I've been drawn to Pele and her story lately. Out of nowhere I ran to get my left over clay and made a volcano...after that the name Pele stuck in my head and I did some research. :)

    Mine is from a recent trip to the Philippines, Christmas 2005. Filipinos have a passion for life that make Americans seem dull [​IMG] .

    My love for the equine species.

    Someone needs to add a horse icon to all the other animals represented underneath the "smilies." So far this :unicorn: is the closest thing we have to represent a horse. I'm not a unicorn aficionado.

    I decided to walk upright, rather than on all fours for awhile. So I changed from a normal wolf to a werewolf.

    My avatar is just a temporary one until I have something better... I like to make my own avatars instead of using ones made by someone else, and the one I have now is a drawing of a person which I made a few months ago... but it's not that good...

    My current is a flamingo- they're one of my favourite birds. :) A huge pink bird, what's not to love?

    Of course my favourite burd ever is my cockatoo Squishy, haha!
