Just wondering how people chose their profile picture. I chose mine because I adore Chief heart and think he’s hilarious.

Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

You can probably find a lot of information about that in the 'New Avatar Topic'

 

Personally, my current avatar was chosen because Ringo is simply the most awesomest person ever!

Because the White Album is my favourite Beatles album.

I love long haired John, and how serious he looks. The jealous/introspective side of him really interests me.

When I first joined i had a nice black and white photo of Paul in his home studio. I’ve gone:

Paul

John

George 

Ringo

GM

Brian Epstein

Billy Preston

Tony Sheridan 

Klaus Voorman right now. I like the black and white avatars and i like using fifth Beatles. How long until I reset to Paul?

I can't remember exactly how in 2011 I came up with the idea of a Magritte parody consisting of a moptop and Apple logo, but I certainly thought it was a nice idea and looked cool (and still do, ahem.) a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I think it's a quite brilliant idea. I'm curious, though; what is the reason for your two accounts?

Haha there are 'biblers who haven't posted since 2014 who could tell the story, I've relayed it so many times. I created the first account at home, then a coupla weeks later I NEEDED to post something from the office and couldn't recall my generated password so I just made a new account. When I made the avatars, I decided to commemorate the work/home origin story with two different outfits, even though I've never worn a tie for work. Since then I've given them equal time, even after leaving that office job. Only on infrequent occasions (like when I'm "of two minds" about a posting) will I use them both consecutively as part of a larger dialogue wth "myself". 

tldr

Nothing deep for me.  My real name is Jim and I always liked the MMT film and the Beatle songs from this era.  And as you can see from some of my posts, I have a weird (jolly?) sense of humor. So I thought a picture of Jolly Jimmy Johnson would be a good fit.  Only serious Beatle fans would recognize it.

The only challenge was finding a picture of him to use.  This was only good picture I could find so I doubt I will ever change it.

I think my first profile picture was a drawing of a penguin dressed as Sherlock Holmes that William Shears Campbell suggested for me but I decided I wanted a Beatles picture. I knew I wanted all of them in the picture so I chose this image from A Hard Day's Night because all of them are in the picture and it is also shows them being silly.

I don't have any desire to change my profile picture at this point but it may happen in the future.

This is no longer accurate. It is now my favorite picture of Corky and just so happens to have George in it as well. a-hard-days-night-george-10 I wanted to combine two of my very favorite things: cats and George.
