Maybe we are all rocks with faces.

I am a particularly colourful one.

I made them a few years ago with a program specifically for pixel and icon art and animated them in Photoshop (although I think maybe only one is animated. Oh nevermind they all move to some degree). I don't have that software anymore since it is no longer free. But I think it can be done in any graphic editing program... lemme see...

EDIT: I made the newer ones that are at the top of the list on the "post a reply or something" page. The rest are Michael's, I think?

This is what happens when my meatspace friends register. It's happened before. The only question is whether or not they'll disappear like previous new registrants did.

Also, I never disappeared. I merely faded.

Quite so. I was thinking more in the Kigamoosh-Reamerer line of things. Have I mentioned that you're an epic lurker?

I will at least continue to type things, even if I tend to not actually click submit. I am quite excited about reading books with people though!

I'm not sure if the welcome thread is the right place, but I figure it has been 8 years or so since I registered.

Hello. For some reason a story Flak wrote a long time back popped into my head this evening. I was marginally surprised that I managed to remember my login first time, since I no longer go by this name!
