    What, not good? It's 100 percent me, unfortunately.
    The head. It looks like it was cut and pasted there for maximal bobblehead effect!

    If this makes me a robot whore, doesn't that just make SoCal a gay whore? Oh wait . . .

    Why deprive us of the best shot, where the point of your shirt collar appears to extend behind the shoulder seam? [​IMG] This is quite amazing, actually. In all honesty, I'd replace that casual shot with one of you in your jeans and Barbour jacket. If that actually still represents your casual style, I think it's a good look that complements your tailored look.

    Some full body shots might help, how can someone tell that you're well dressed if you just take headshots?

    Mafoofan, some nice fits! Although you do look like a robot bird in your standing pose pics.

    The suit pictures remind me for some reason of the closing shot of each episode of The Prisoner, where Number Six's scowling, floating head would appear over a shot of the Village and zoom towards the camera, getting bigger all the way and filling up the screen, until prison bars would slam down in front of it.

    I do not know why this is.

    Comparing the actual Mafoo to the posts just... I don't know how to describe it.

    You know you're up against Brad from SF, right? Will you vote for yourself or him?


    I'll most likely vote for Brad, as I like to bet on winners. But then, I'm also prone to pity losers, so I may vote for myself at the end.

    I hope you used the picture of you in the tan shirt-jacket thingy from Matuozzo that I remember you posting a while back, its my favorite thing of yours..

    Edit, you didn't; I think you should..


    I thought about it, but I really don't like it that much. It fits and is made well, but it doesn't really characterize the way I like to dress.

    150 percent, I'd say.

    Does that mean I'm 50 percent more likely to win, or 150 percent more pathetic than I was before entering the contest?

    Didn't you vote for yourself in the latest d-bag contest?

    Yeah, but I was a winner and a loser in that instance--so how could I go wrong?

    I've decided to enter this contest as well...I'm uploading pics as we speak.

    The main hurdle? Getting my entry approved.

    I hope the Kazakhstan email address is not too suspicious.

    Consider it a compliment if you dont win. I took a look at the previous winners and they looked like shit. That IWC will inevitably fall into the wrong hands. [​IMG]
