I voted, but would like to point out that Mr. Ness's gravatar has the benefit of being created by one of the coolest professional graphic designers in our town. Political power has its advantages.

No "none of the above" option? Meh.

Ouch, I’m hurt! (That’s okay, I didn’t vote for myself either. Anyway, I drew that picture twelve years ago, so I probably don’t even look like that anymore.) Don Ness’s Gravitar is from Brian Barber’s Black-Eyed Snakes Homegrown Music Video (the video with the seagull on Superior Street). If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. samh—I think by “First Bracket,” Paul means “Which PDD user of these four has the best Gravitar, and if there’s another Gravitar you like better you can vote for it later, and perhaps you’ll have the chance to vote for it again against one of these four?”

Well I guess I'll call it a toss up between Lithis and Don Ness. But I'll probably have to vote for Don since The Snakes are so awesome.

I should probably change my Gravatar to Goatse so that maybe I'll get featured in a future bracket ; )

I was saying just last weekend that I forgot long ago how to change the photo that shows up here. I'll be "Obama yourself" forever.

Why are the images above low-quality JPEGs? The originals are much better looking.

Otherwise you could just use the original images without borders.

It's a hard vote - maybe we should have the background info on why they chose their Gravatar. Forget it, I voted anyway.

It would be a lot easier to vote if I didn't need a magnifying glass to do so.

Any chance of Jim and Dim going head to head at some point?

Paul Lundgren

Is the image quality really that bad? They look normal on my monitor. Of course, my monitor has been dropped a few times.

Here are enlarged versions of the differences between the images in the poll and the originals: Vicarious [img]http://hethrael.org/Perfect%20Duluth%20Day/Vicarious%20difference%20enlarged.png[/img] C-Freak [img]http://hethrael.org/Perfect%20Duluth%20Day/C-Freak%20difference%20enlarged.png[/img] Don Ness [img]http://hethrael.org/Perfect%20Duluth%20Day/Don%20Ness%20difference%20enlarged.png[/img] Lithis [img]http://hethrael.org/Perfect%20Duluth%20Day/Lithis%20difference%20enlarged.png[/img] You can see how the first three are speckled and how my head, hands, and outline have been degraded. If you compare the side-by-side images in my previous comment you can see the blotches in the sky in Vicarious’s Gravatar and in Don Ness’s face, and you can also see how my head is faded and my clothes have a dark outline.

Lithis, all I can say for sure is that your head is faded.

That's what she said.

A gravitar has to be appreciated in the medium of it's conveyance! No high resolution blah dee blah.

I think the giant, talking Happy Chef from Mankato is the obvious winner. But I might be biased. heysme - I chose it because my family would meet my grandparents at the Happy Chef when I was a kid in the 1970s. They lived in Estherville, IA and Mankato was halfway between there and MPLS. Just seeing the giant, talking Happy Chef conjures the smell of Folgers and the feel of my grandpa's huge hands.

...oh, and as of two years ago, he's still standing there menacingly. But he doesn't talk anymore.
