Who/What's my avatar?

I'm going to be updating this periodically whenever I feel like changing my avatar. It's kind of a game-ish thing... here's how it works. Whenever I change my avatar, I'll update the thread to say that I have changed it. The object is this: guess who/or what my avatar is. Most of the time it's going to be a person. If people don't get it for a while by looking or by the context clues provided in my title, then I'll give hints.

I'll start off with the avatar I have now. This one's really easy, though, as I've posted it in a thread and talked about it in IRC... I'm pretty sure that people will get it right away.

Not to fear, the thread won't die easily after this, as, due to the fact that when reduced to the size that it is now my avatar doesn't look nearly as good, I might change it soon. That's not to say that I don't like this one, it's just saying that the image is unfortunately distorted.

So without further adieu... go.

Indeed, it is a Cthulhu...

Bonus points for what variety of Cthulhu it is.

WINNAR.

Ogre also gets props for adding the "Kitty."

I'll put up a new avatar by the end of the night. Hang tight.

The question might have been a little tougher if your "call of cthulhu" thread wasn't on the same page.

Guess away.

(BTW, sorry about the terrible pic quality. The only decent program I have for reducing size won't initialize for some reason.)

Wow. You actually found my "Zevonist" definition on UrbanDictionary. 1 Bonus Point to Bones.

Oh, by the way... I forgot that I'll be awarding points for this. They'll mean something eventually. Glophead has 2 points for getting both parts of last one right. Bones has 1 point now. I'll award a bonus point for whoever figures out the signifigance of the title.

Very close. You get 1 point.

Zappa redorded Debra Kadabra live, during a concert that he split with another artist. That other artist is the one pictured in the avatar.

Yeah, also, I'd like to add this: just so that this thread gets a longer run, let's try for as little google use as possible. Google makes it a little too easy. Google isn't illegal, though, it's just frowned upon. Try only to use it if you have a good idea, but just want to affirm it.

Continue.

Yes, I suppose that he may be creepy to some...

But that's not the answer.

That would be Frank's sometime partner in crime, Captain Beefheart

This is the only album (CD actually) of his that I have.


'Puffed and flabulant' sounds like part of a Zappa lyric, but I can't place it. Will take me hours to listen through all my Zappa albums.

A point for Platypus, and a correct answer.

The lyric was by Beefheart, on the song Debra Kadabra, on the album Bongo Fury, a Zappa/Beefheart live album.

Next one coming relatively soon.

This is a tricky one... if it's too hard after a while I'll change my title to a more conspicuous context clue.

GO!

A few more incorrect guesses and I'll change the title to something more conspicuous

Not particularly, no, but I'm sure there are some TFPers who listen to them... they had a single earlier this year that got some airplay on MTV2, had a brief run on the Rock Countdown.

As a matter of fact, the avatar is a still from the video of said song.

I'm changing to a more conspicuous title in a sec. Hang tight.

No... the band's not punk so much as "melodic hardcore." They're a little light for hardcore though... I guess just more of a hard rock.

You've got the band right... that's 1 point.

1 point will be awarded for the pictured person's name, and another 1 point for anyone who can name what song's video the avatar is taken from

I'd also like to award Bones a point for being generous enough to withdraw his answer for the last one.

Daryl Taberski is correct, and Coagulate is absolutely correct. Good job. +2 points to you, that brings you to a commanding lead at 6.

As I have an avatar lined up that I am ready to keep for a while, I'll let people redeem their points in exchange for a chance to use their avatar as a subject for it. You can do as many as you have points, and you can award up to 5 points per avatar for different aspects of the figuring (as I did). To review the points:

Bones: 6

Glophead: 2

ogre840: 1

platypus: 1

numberfive: 1

First taker from that list is free to have a go...

Erm, I believe he's done with the game and giving the people with points a chance to temporarily take over?
