    Why? I don't think my name or avatar need any explanation.

    I can explain my avatar...
    It is a slightly photo-shopped scan of an actual piece of femo clay that was stamped, by my SIL, and affixed to a greeting card she made several years ago. I made it fuzzy around the edges. I've always loved this particular stamp image, as I think it represents, for me, the divine feminine (Goddess), in her most beguiling aspect.

    @Vicki , I think basement farmer is really just trying to strike up a few conversations, and become part of the community. I will ask you.. is that one of your kitties?

    I think my avatar is pretty self explanatory. On closeup, you can see I detailed the door and walls of the grow room w/ obscure oldschool thrash concert flyers for nostalgia's/comedy's sake.

    Like the flyer's, my username is probably lost on the younger generation. I tried picking something that adequately reflected my character - in a comedic way. Snake Plissken (pronounced w/ a long 10 second emphasis on the 's') was the antihero in an old 80's flick called "Escape From New York" played by Kurt Russell.



    If you ever need a couple good vaked off your ass, braindead flicks to watch sometime - I recommend both escape and 'big trouble in little china' (also starring Kurt Russel). You definitely won't get any smarter watching either, but fun nonetheless - these are the flicks that inspired tarantino to do what he does today.

    Quetzalcoatl/ˌkɛtsɑːlˈkoʊɑːtəl/ (Classical Nahuatl: Quetzalcohuātl[ketsaɬˈko.aːtɬ]) is a Mesoamericandeity whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and means "feathered serpent".[1] The worship of a feathered serpent deity is first documented in Teotihuacan in the first century BC or first century AD.[2] That period lies within the Late Preclassic to Early Classic period (400 BC – 600 AD) of Mesoamerican chronology, and veneration of the figure appears to have spread throughout Mesoamerica by the Late Classic (600–900 AD).[3]

    ^^^Understatement of the year nomination.

    My name is Stu, so I thought I'd get creative when choosing a name, but turtlefondler was already taken, so I said "fuck it, Stu it is".

    My avatar is from one of my many failed websites. I paid good money for that graphic artwork and damn it I'm gonna use it. I took out the ".com" part so as not to appear to be promoting jesuslovesbeer.com. Hell, I haven't paid rent on that domain for years, so god only knows who is squatting there now. Turns out that not everyone was as interested in Jesus loving beer as I was. Go figure.

    TL;DR Q is ugly and I'm a bad webmaster

    Bullshit @Stu! @turtlefondler has not been taken on FC yet.. You should get a name change! :lol:

    I guess my name would be kind of a baked attempt at a metaphor for paradox.. and also a homophone of "Billdozer", Bill Dauterive's nick-name, from 'King of the Hill'.

    My avatar is what is tiled as my desktop background. :cool:

    My username is the title of a song from Steven Wilson's Grace for Drowning: my favorite album by my favorite artist (though that's a bit like picking a favorite child, it's all amazing). I thought it made for an amusing choice for a pseudonym, sort-of like how people on some other websites refer to themselves as SWIM (someone who isn't me) all the time… Now I feel like it's a bit long, but I like it enough. I may have giggled the first time I realized that I was putting the sentence "No part of me likes this." at the bottom of people's posts. :dog:

    If you want to listen, do me a favor and play this in HD because this guy is such an amazing producer that it hurts to share his music in the form of a YouTube video… It deserves surround sound blu-ray audio (a format he actually releases it in). :tup:



    My avatar is the view from inside a sunken condominium. It's taken from the artwork for Donald Fagen's 2012 album Sunken Condos. Not my favorite album of his, but a good one, and I love the artwork:

    I might not be Jesus but I'll vape you under the table any day!

    Do I need to remind you who called it quits first at the Herbalizer get-together? :tup:

    SD_Haze was just a highdea one day. Super Silver Haze was the first topshelf I ever had.


    Also, I really liked the Ikea Monkey story.
    Then I found this painting of it. Yellow's my favorite color so I really, really liked it :)
    EDIT: oh yeah and my zodiac sign is the monkey

    Thank the turtle for that...:cool:

    I'm only here on this here roundworld,because of an unfortunate accident with one of Bergholt Stuttley "Bloody Stupid" Johnson's(AKA Bloody Stupid "It Might Look A Bit Messy Now But Just You Come Back In Five Hundred Years' Time" Johnson and Bloody Stupid "Look, The Plans Were The Right Way Round When I Drew Them" Johnson, a relaxing bath it certainly wasn't...!) devices.
    The constant and abundant intake of Cannabis through vaping flowers and concentrates(and occasionally through baking products as well) is the only thing from going completely insane on this messed-up slice of reality,while i try to find a way back to my beloved Discworld and ruling Ankh-Morpork on the old,trusted principle of 'one man,one vote!'
    (With me being the one man with that one vote of course;).)

    My name is pakalolo and I approve of this thread. :tup:

    Pakalolo is Hawaiian for cannabis. Properly written it is pakalōlō, from paka meaning tobacco, and lōlō meaning stupid or feeble-minded. As I understand it, that's not meant as a comment on the user, it's about the effects. I'm not from Hawaii but I live there two months every year, and my wife and I feel a strong connection to Maui. I'm taking @Stu's "turtlefondler" as a sly dig at our work there with the Hawaiian green turtle, by the way. Perhaps my ego is a bit large, but he's been known to do that in the past. :rolleyes:

    I made the avatar myself from a web image that originally featured a palm tree. If you look closely, you'll notice it's not a palm tree any more. :D
