What do the following two films have in common:

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
Raiders of the Lost Ark

Answer in comments. They are screened.

I have a very specific answer in mind. But will not rule out other correct answers.

Go! 😉

With Aiden recovering on the couch today we decided tonight would make for a good movie night.

We discovered some film cravings missing from “The Library” which will soon be rectified.

While looking, however, something odd happened. Aiden (being held by H) started pointing at the collection.
“Would you like to pick the movie, tonight?” I asked.

Figuring he’d just connect with whatever DVD H walked to, it was an exercise in amusement.

However… Aiden’s finger zeroed in on a specific DVD. It was obvious he’d picked one. Moreso when as we got closer he reached for the one he was pointing to and pulled it from the shelf. He’d pointed at the same one all the time.

Granted… it was the big pink one that stood out from the black and blue of the other jewel boxes.

So Aiden’s selection tonight: “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

For years, I have been searching for good avatars. Granted, with a receding hairline, and long hair in black, and a white fu-man-chu goatee… Most auto-avatar places… really never hit it.

So, Here’s my challenge… Yes… Challenge.

I’m going to give a prize (actual monetary value up to $50) to the best avatars for me… YOU come up with.

EDIT: Enter as many times as you wish
Entries must be posted as a comment to this post.
Entries must have your LJ handle, or other identifying info (for non lj-ers) in the comment field.

Entries may be submitted from resident artists of the Freeple Household but there will be no favouritism.

Submissions will be taken for one month starting today. (Closing 07/17/08)
Two winners will be chosen during the following week. 7/17-24
1) Readers’ Choice (by vote) (May be on Apolo site if many voters are non-lj)
2) Andrei Choice (by me)

Let’s see how people think I look in avatar form. Just curious. 🙂

Okay… Go!

Fine Print:
Void in the state of denial. Prize for winning avatar not to exceed $50 each or $100 total unless otherwise noted. Avatar submissions should be of Andrei and preferable favourable in appearance. All avatar submissions become property of Andrei for use regardless of winning or not. Void where prohibited by taste. Your milage may vary. Submissions by LJ users not currently subscribed to by Andrei (aka not on his ‘friends list’) as well as anonymous submissions will be screened (hidden after posting)… These will be made visible in due time (< 24 hours) for consideration. Voting for "Readers' Choice" will commence 7/17 at a link made available in a posting to this journal on that date. Wow, I really can't believe anyone is actually reading this. If you're still reading this and email me at my journal email (see my profile) with the word thelema then your readers’ choice vote will count for two votes rather than one. Further if you’ve e-mailed me with the word as mentioned and you win with your submission, your prize will go up 50% in value. Oh, yeah. Commenting about this fine print in this post isn’t actually forbidden, but it will null the bonus offer for you. Feel free to email me about it. Caveat. I will email you back a confirmation if you email me. If you don’t get a confirmation from me within 48 hours, feel free to comment “I mailed you”. I may ask you for an email address if I don’t have one. Yes, I’m being utterly lazy and buying the talent of the people on the net. But hey, isn’t that what free market is for. This is a serious offer. Ooh, let’s get back to the big print…

Everyone get that?
