So I was just checking out the site for the first time in a while and saw Mage's sig...again. I think the time away from it helped me "see" it for the first time (hopefully that made sense)...

Here it is:

Now do you find this creepy or cool.

On the one hand, it is cool. It reminds me of a park in London (Green Park if I remeber correctly) in the fall. It is a nice pick and the slogan is simply a kind invite on a little stroll.

On the other hand, its a little creepy. It makes me think of two things. 1) A pedo asking a kid to "take a walk" with him. Little does the kid know that around the corner is a van waiting... Or 2) Mage is inviting us into his life with this pic, which while it looks nice, just beyond our vision lies the dark underbelly of his existence...

What are your thoughts?...especially your's Mage...?

Even lame doesn't cut it for me...because at times the sig isn't lame to me...it is intriguing.

But other times its lame.

Yours on the other hand is odd. The background reminds me of random fractal geometry and the main figures are slightly altered mirror images (the ladies primarily are different)...I don't know what it says about you but it is eye-catching...

I gotta say I don't really see anything particularly creepy or cool about the sig. It kind of reminds me of a motivational poster.

His sig is fucking gay and he's a dumbass dork because it says "THATS JUST NOT RIGHT"

Change it or delete it. Just like Crackpot Homo.

The forest reminds me of the never ending forest (unless you have the lunar harp) in FF VII .

I don't find the sig particularly thought provoking.
1) A pedo asking a kid to "take a walk" with him. Little does the kid know that around the corner is a van waiting...

I don't draw attention to myself for a reason.

Updated the sig for the people who hate TJNR.

I wouldn't necessarily say a pedo. But then I got curious and clicked the link immediately underneath it and read the Joe Budden lyrics, which depressed the crap out of me.

Then I thought that taking a walk in those woods with someone would leave one person in that party of two headless.
