Nava looks nothing like I imagined she would.

Maybe you have my hat! I forgot it in the Lugano-Zurich train on the same day the picture was taken.


Everyone else, thanks for all the great submissions! I'll be adding new photos in the next couple of days.

Argent Towers 11-29-2009 12:47 PM

None of these people look anything like the mental picture I had of them. Especially Silenus, who I imagined looking something like Robert Patrick in Terminator 2.

Stealth Potato, for some reason, looks extremely Russian. He looks like a young Russian chemical engineer or something.

Twickster looks like one of those older, professor-looking women who I always get crushes on.

Stranger on a Train looks like a pick-up artist.

AHunter3 looks dangerous. Seriously.

BigBertha 11-29-2009 01:57 PM

Sent mine last night. No see it.?

Shayna 11-29-2009 04:31 PM

Hi Arnold, thanks for the PM. I'll certainly send some pics. In the meantime, here are some links to very old Dopefests. . .

June 16th, 2001 L.A. Dopefest (Mercutio's pictures)

Spoofe's Dopetoberfest Pics

February 24, 2001 L.A. Dopefest (Spoofe's pics)

April 25, 2001 L.A. Dopefest (Spoofe's pics again)

Nice job on the site!

I knew it!

Seriously, I think I've mentioned this on the boards before, but it's happened to me several times that an actual Russian person comes up to me on the street and begins speaking to me in Russian. They are usually surprised when they realize that I don't know any Russian beyond "yes," "no," and "the toilet won't flush." (Which isn't much of a conversation starter.) The most memorable one was probably the elderly gentleman wearing a thick fur coat and an honest-to-goodness ushanka.

It is a little bit awesome and yet slightly weird because I have no trace of Russian at all in my family.

Dallas Jones 11-29-2009 07:05 PM

I just sent a picture of me at my desk, probably 'on the Dope'. The cat on the headrest is Dallas. She can't spell worth a shit, but is otherwise quite helpfull.

running coach 11-29-2009 09:48 PM

Picture sent.

You look kind of like a killer from some movie, although I'm drawing a blank on exactly which one. Someone who scared me, though. Maybe it's just that one picture. I'm sure you're a very nice guy and everything. But I see the deepest recesses of horror when I look into your eyes.

I'm terrible with that too. I always get some vague-ish image in my head, and it's never even close to accurate. (Most embarrassing is when I even got the gender wrong.... oops! :o )

You'll have to wait a bit for mine. I'm getting my headshots re-done Dec. 12. (So no one can complain that they're out-of-date. :) )

HazelNutCoffee 11-30-2009 06:42 AM

I sent one in too! It's fun browsing through the gallery.

umop ap!sdn 11-30-2009 08:50 AM

Eh, I'll think about sending one in. :D

Nope - that will be left as an exercise to the viewer. :p

Funny the way that lays out. On the last page, Yeticus Rex is giving umop ap!sdn a very interesting look!

Sorry, this is a drawback with the way the gallery is being created right now - updates will only happen every few days. I will try to keep it as timely as possible but these past 4 days family affairs kept me busy.

On the last index page, you mean. I hope everyone is realizing that you go to the full-size pictures by clicking on the smaller picture on the index page. I am wondering if some people are missing that.

Yes, I did indeed mean the last index page.

It actually caught me by surprise and you even warned me about that. Usually when you click thumbnails you just get larger versions; in this case you get a "full version". Very cool feature!

jjimm 12-01-2009 07:40 AM

I'm interested that there are two Everest Base Camp pics, one taken each side of the mountain.

Larry Griffin-Kentzel 12-01-2009 11:35 AM

I like that photo of you, umop.


:cool:

MoodIndigo1 12-01-2009 01:06 PM

Damn, you guys all look so good -- and young, too.

Calling for the other old folks from the board to post pictures. Am I the oldest woman on SDMB? (age 63)

Honestly, you don't look that old. I'm sure you're not the oldest woman on the SDMB. Just make that your signature and you will be challenged soon enough!
Chefguy, you're old? I couldn't tell. All I saw was a beautiful loaf of bread.

melodyharmonius 12-02-2009 03:01 PM

Sadly, all my best current pics are NSFW . . . lol.

Whenever I post my pic, I always end up getting my hair cut/colored/something so that I never look like what I did . . . will look at posting something soon - got a hair cut scheduled this week.

(I found the NSFW thread from last year and the one you had there looked very nice, and very tasteful too, made for a great picture (with a great subject of course!))

Morbo 12-02-2009 03:14 PM

Eh, what the hell. I've been here for almost 9 years. Email sent.

Ann Onimous 12-02-2009 03:25 PM

I'm in, and email has been sent. I also sent a family shot. Two Dopers for the price of one!

There are several people here who are rocking the serial killer look. I can dig it.

Awww, look at all your dear little faces. My message board friends are real! :D

Telemark, has anyone ever told you that you resemble a young Alan Rickman?

I'll send a photo as soon as I can shave and get together with a friend who has a digital camera. That should be sometime this weekend.

Just ignore the rope, duct tape & shovels in my trunk, and we'll be fine.

MeanOldLady 12-03-2009 12:27 PM

I don't know if Rex Goliath is adorable, or if I'm being distracted by that cute little dog. Nice strategy there! I'm going to have to get a photo of myself frolicking with a baby polar bear, then submit it to the gallery.

By the way Shayna, I haven't forgotten this. I will be adding links to these Dopefest pictures on my Dopefest page by the end of the week. Thanks for the links! If anyone else has links to Dopefest pictures, please send them to me.

If there are a lot of posters who want to send in NSFW pictures, I can create a NSFW section at the gallery, but honestly I dont think that many people would participate.
But please send in a photo of yourself that is SFW! Or you can send a NSFW photo and I can crop it to only include the face and neck.
