#1 Post by Lazor78 » 02 Jan 2003, 03:19

Quick question.

Wheres the best place to go for film avatars? I'm probably being really dumb but I can't seem to find any decent ones.

I won't ignore you, I was looking for the right opportunity to say what a brilliant avatar - nice! 8)

I looked up the avatars off of yahoo.com, that's where I ended up finding good ol' Gollum here. I grabbed this one off of YaBBSE.org. They have some great LOTR avatars there.
Yee Haa!!!!

That's awesome! You should tell Buffoon, I think he's been looking for an avatar like that.
Btw, you know I'm a woman, right? (I think that's about the 10th time! I don't understand, I changed my avatar :( )

If you e-mail it to me, I can host it for you. I'll post it and send you the link. Or you can e-mail The Boyz and they'll host it... :)

"She's a Man, man!!" No, No, I didn't think that you were a dude, what dude would put an avatar of Breakfast at Tiffanies??
No, I was just saying, thanks man as a general term. Meant no offense! :wink:

I likes, I likes a lot. I was unaware that he was shooting an orc, though. That makes it a bit "cooler" now that I had taken a closer look!! :o
