Talking All About Avatars THREAD-Discussions, Gossips, Bragging Rights, etc

Thread is self-explanatory...



I wonder why Roey hasn't reported Dinraat as yet...concerning the latter's avatar..

I've changed mine yesterday. Went for something random.

I know that Zeeshan is a frequent changer of his avatars, but he always has that stock Steven Seagal cartoon one that he always revert back to...

Jadukor's Iron Maiden is pretty iconic as well...

Arghh, Aklemmap, again with the overreaction just because it is related to Rahim. Of course Dinraat can upload any avatar he wishes, the avatar ain't the problem, the man's cricketing behavior, attitude and performances are...anyway...let's leave it at that

Let's see what comes to mind..

Furqan's Anamul Haque photo has become pretty iconic. Done ironically or not? I think I once asked him, but forget his answer.

ZeeShan's 3 dot/ 4 dot? head gopal bhar? also sticks to mind.

I remember iDumb having a Langdon Donavan photo, before he went no avatar. That was strange, I mean I watch a lot of soccer, and think he is the greatest player to come out of USA, but have him appreciated in a cricket thread, certainly cool. Again, don't know if it was genuine appreciation or ironic.

I once made Nadim a Nas Hossain avatar, don't know if he still has that one.

Hehe..."the man's cricketing behavior, attitude, etc..."

The Nagin dance, Dinraat's avatar exemplifies all of that.

It was either that or Shakib grabbing his balls you decide.

yes it was for akle. but I think he got close with "purnima".

80s/90s book covers by dhrubo esh makes me feel very nostalgic. this is just a homage to the great humayun ahmed and the beautiful covers by esh.

At first glance I couldn't recognize those yellow figures...then I try a little harder, and polyps come to mind.

I don't know who Humayun is.

Actually, I do not like the writer at all. Bd can produce far greater authors than that chump. I also know things about his family, but that is a rabbit hole you do not want to get into. I only know these things because of being the conspiracy researcher that I am.

Sorry, that took a strange tangent, long story cut short, don't worry your brilliant mind with some HeMoo, SheMoo..

If you ever want to get into Bengali novels, you can start with Satyajit Ray. Most of his stuff is translated, so you can read.

Seinfeld is a show about nothing yet it is arguably the greatest comedy series in US TV history.

It is not the story but the way it is told - simplified for the masses yet brining in some strong emotions. Humayun Ahmed was a big phenomenon in 80s to 90s. I guess the timing also helped him but regardless the guy is a master story teller.

You have good memory btw. Referencing my landon donovon pic. But my favorite avatar is by a member name Orpheus who doesn't post anymore with an avatar that says Virgin. iconic.

He was a wonderful writer and one of the best from Bangladesh. His dramas kept the whole country captivated and his novels were also quite brilliant. I wish you could read bangla because i am sure his Misir Ali and Himu catalogue would have made a fan out of you.

Oh kool, thanks for the reply. Sounds like he was a really good storyteller.

Would have never known had this thread not been created.

One of the best "of the new world order." Too many legends we have. Each great in their own style of writing.

LOL given I joined when I was an annoying 13 year old to now being a wise (i think) 24 year old, I'd say I've transitioned to a grandma or at least a wise old woman...
