    Fantastic! I'm assuming the Bansky prints are photographs of actual "installations" (for lack of a better word)? How neat would it be to see the real thing? I'll have to put that on my wish list for an upcoming visit to the UK. Now to google "Banksy Map"...

    I would strongly recommend a trip down to Brighton on your trip. It's only an hour on the train from London and it is a very bohemian, arty and creative place. It's very cool and I think that from the little I know of you, you'd really like it. Also if you make it up to Scotland, you must go to Edinburgh. A beautiful city if I say so myself and the capital of the country of god's own people. What more could you want?

    Lady gaga in a meat dress. Need I say more?

    Think I'm going to change it though, but all the 150x150 pics I find are damn blurry. I might go for a hot Lisa.

    Just did a quick google images search for 'hot Lisa'. Clearly, I forgot to add the Simpson surname. Still, I'm no worse for the experience.

    This is the best of the bunch:

    Yes, now that Kymie is hot Marge again, a hot Lisa would be most welcome :D

    Shall we start a pool for when the moderator catches this? :D

    I chose mine because Pink Floyd is my favorite band. Also, the DSotM is my favorite album.

    Do you have the widows cursor icon set?

    Need to resize it; but it should be self explanatory.

    And it was as good to eat as it looks.

    I all ready have mine picked out and uploaded to my profile, just waiting to be promoted to display it. It's the cast of the Big Bang theory that have been simpsonized. This is my favourite show in the world.

    I picked mine not only because of the silliness of it, but hey, not that far off the mark of how I sit around the house. I also enjoy the art work of Bob Kane, Frank Miller and Stan Lee.

    Thanks to zuzupj pointing out Simpsons Doctor Who drawings I was able to mesh the two great worlds.

    Because I love all things Doctor Who. I used to have a weeping angel which is my favorite from the series, but I switched it out to the cute blobs of fat instead.

    I do miss the Weeping Angel, but the fat is very cute

    Ummm....I'd love to see some artwork by Stan Lee.

    While I've read loads of what he's written (Excelsior!), I've never seen anything that he's drawn.

    I was conflicted. On the one hand there was my quintessential Simpson's moment: Homer Goes to College and the I Am So Smart song. I imagine if I could have figured out how to make my avatar the little dancing Homer I'd have that.

    As it is I went with plan B: find a relatively obscure old school character. I was a huge fan of Phil Hartman and considered all his characters, in the end the charlatan Lyle spoke the most to me. Now when I post I try to think a little bit about what Lyle might say. After all, we're all characters here right?

    Of course we know Bansky, except in the States we call him Shepard Fairey.

    I'm a big Bond fan and absolutely loved the parody that they did of the genre in "You Only Move Twice" with Hank Scorpio.

    I was going to use this photo initially:
    Scorpio_with_Mr._Bont.png

    But then I found this gif and just had to use it. He looks so enormously pleased with himself using that flamethrower.

    C'mon -- we saw the photos you posted! You can't be implying that you purposely chose the absolutely most flattering ones.

    An accurate representation of yourself is what the internet is made of!
