But nowhere near enough Ron, and just enough (1) for my liking!

@WETSRoosa, never heard of Chappelle's Show, when was it broadcast? Did your wife like it?

Chappelle's Show aired in America on Comedy Central in 2003 and 2004. It's your typical sketch comedy show only with serious envelope-pushing sketches, like a crackhead that wins on Fear Factor or a blind black man who's racist towards black people because he doesn't know he's black himself. And that's just what I can mention- many other sketches I really can't bring up because they're quite extreme. Chappelle picked on EVERYBODY, so no race or creed was spared for the sake of his art. The show is best known for the tagline "I'm Rick James, bitch!" that stems from one of the show's writers, Charlie Murphy (Eddie's brother) recollecting his time hanging out with Rick. The show only lasted those two seasons and 3 episodes of a third season because Chappelle quit due to a variety of rumored reasons (drugs/stress/fame/people wanting to hurt him). I loved the show and still do now (I have all 3 seasons on DVD), the wife likes certain sketches but some are pretty extreme for her.

Here's a skit Chappelle did with John Mayer (if you're sensitive to strong language or are uneasy with race jokes, DON'T WATCH):

It's Necko, I think. He posted a picture of himself in a different thread (forget which one) and he had long blonde hair much like that picture.

It is me. I just took a picture with the built-in webcam on my laptop, cropped it so it would be square, messed with the contrast a little bit, and desaturated it. 

I think it's pretty unnecessary to say this, but I tried to make it look like the default picture.

@IveJustSeenAFaceo So it wasn't just my imagination then thinking I had seen Necko's picture in another thread. Thanks.

@Necko That's exactly what I thought of when I saw the picture. Clever!

Thanks. 

By the way, I'm pretty handy with image editing, should anybody need an image edited for some reason.

Prepare for a barrage of photo requests.

And with that, could you put Calvin and Hobbes characters into Abbey Road

Better in what way? 

 

This is a conversation that should probably continue over private message.

2 Wogblog articles, 1 with some info on that John photo session, the other connections between The Beatles and Superman.

The Lennon Superman t-shirt was taken in 1966 by Alan Aldridge for the cover of 'The Penguin John Lennon' book (comprising of 'In His Own Write' & 'A Spaniard In The Works). One of the comments in the first link writes that the initial concept of the photo shoot was to dress John up as a Penguin!!!

 

A bit more searching brings up that Alan designed the covers of both volumes of The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics, a few more details and some example of his work (include those involving The Beatles) can be found here.

@Musketeer Gripweed (kezron9) Since youreaswine decided to change her avatar (which interestingly has a birdcage just like yours does), you can go back to your previous one if you ever want to.

Interesting info @meanmistermustard , thanks for the research. Was very surprised I had never seen the photo before. Also @Ahhh Girl thanks for the update. I think I might stick with this one for now enjoy having the color. Also John as superman with a birdcage is just funny to me.
