 Why do you have the avatar you have? When I used to post on BMMB,I had the crazy doc from the 1934 MAINIAC,only because they had none I liked. I choose Bela from MARK of the VAMPIRE,because I'm a hardcore Lugosi fanatic...( READ not fan...FANATIC!!!Ask a Lugosi question...I know it!). Any way...why yer chosen avatars? This does'nt apply to Ash... who I suspect is schizo...cuz he changes avatars like underwear...( Just kidding............!!!! Put down that axe ,Eugene!).

Well in addition to being a B-movie nerd I am also an anime fan, thus Hinata Hyuuga, who I have not bothered to put back up since I failed at putting Amelie Poulain as my April Fools avatar.

(EDIT: Now I have)

When I first got on here, there wazznt a whole lot of avatarz so I picked the only one that applys to me. Now theres alot more that i would have picked like alot of the robot ones and the Cheetah man one, but the ss Goku one just seems to fit me now. I dig DBZ to make a long answer short.

I know that it's West, but every time I look at it, I see Wesley from Buffy/Angel. TeddyR

I've actually been using that same avatar on a different board, which made it slightly confusing when the avatars were first available here, since I'd scan a topic and think your posts were mine.

As for the one I use...I've always gravitated toward darker imagery, especially reaper-like figures, so when I found this one a few years back, I decided to use it for an avatar at another board. When I created my b-movie site, the image seemed a natural fit with the general graveyard/darkness theme.

Well obviously I'm a fan of the comic series from Alan Moore. But I also liked the film adaptation. Why did I choose it? Probably because I'm usually smiling on the inside even if I'm not on the outside.  Does that even make any sense?

I'm a Godzilla nut and a fan of Samuel L. Jackson, the only way I could think of to bring both together was the scene of the big guy and the line from Pulp Fiction. After I put it up Andrew was kind enough to provide an animated version and now I use that.

I wonder what Freud would say about my choice?

The Phantom from Space.
Considering how boring it was, I couldn't help but notice.

I thought it was indicative of my intelligence, personality & hygiene.

Hmmmmmmmmm, could be, but sometimes a guy in a foam rubber suit is just a guy in a foam rubber suit, now if I had picked a cigar as an avatar...........

I choose Bela from MARK of the VAMPIRE,because I'm a hardcore Lugosi fanatic.

The Bela icon is great and I still haven't seen all of MARK OF THE VAMPIRE. TCM plays it once in a while. Hopefully they will play it again in October, so I can finish it. I liked what I saw.

My avatar is whatever image happened to strike my fancy, usually with a horror or 'b' movie theme. I always start get bored with my avatars, then an imgage jumps out at me and I just gotta use it.

So far here I've been:
Charles Ogle's monster from FRANKENSTEIN (1910)
A twitching, jerking Mae West from SEXTETTE (animated!)
A cover of CREEPY magazine featuring Lon Chaney from LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT
Papa Lazarou from the very dark BBC sitcom The League of Gentlemen
Currently: Peter Lorre as Dr. Gogol as Rollo the Knifethrower (RC will understand!) form MAD LOVE
Next one: ??????

So far no Andy Milligan avatars.

So far...  TeddyR
