Profile Pic

As part of some other work I’ve needed to finally look for a new profile image. The ones I use currently are a photo from 2006 and a cartoon image that’s even older than that.

Here are three more recent profile pic options. Which should be my go-to option when I need to present a face to the world?

I’ll close voting Friday midnight, NZ time. Winning choice becomes my Twitter pic.

(I’ll make no comment until voting is closed.)

    Number 3.

    Number 1.

    (Unless you are posting about a SEKRET PLAN in which case Number 2)

    Definitely #3.

    I vote for #3 too.

    #3. you look mental, and i approve of those shenanigans.

  7. Joe Murphy | August 19, 2010 at 9:39 pm | Permalink

    I thought I’d be voting for #2, but it’s got to be #3. It has an enviable four-coffee energy.

    Number 1, though you are really starting to look like your dad in that one. I’m sure I’ve seen him in a photo looking almost exactly the same.

  9. Jenni | August 19, 2010 at 9:45 pm | Permalink

    I vote 3 also.

  10. billy | August 19, 2010 at 10:02 pm | Permalink

    You know you are hoping that the votes will come out for #2.

  11. Scott A | August 19, 2010 at 10:06 pm | Permalink

    Number 3.

    And, dear god, when did we all get so old?

  12. Adrienne | August 19, 2010 at 10:06 pm | Permalink

    Number 3!

  13. Kate | August 19, 2010 at 10:12 pm | Permalink

    NUMBER TWO! Superman is cool. And seductive with his bedroom eyes and half-off moustache.

    I might get 4chan behind me so that you HAVE to use this! RIG THE VOTE! Say no to #3 the safe quirky choice.

    I like the Morgue-ishness of number 1

  15. hannah | August 20, 2010 at 2:54 am | Permalink

    the middle one, obv!!

  16. Gator | August 20, 2010 at 3:49 am | Permalink

    seriously, the second, without a doubt. Let it all hang out.

  17. Stoner Tait | August 20, 2010 at 7:00 am | Permalink

    Number one!

  18. Emma | August 20, 2010 at 8:17 am | Permalink

    Number two!!!!!!!!

  19. Malc | August 20, 2010 at 8:39 am | Permalink

    Guru Josh.

    Come on, it’s 1990, time for the Guru.

    Oh, wait…

    Cheers

    3!

  21. Pearce | August 20, 2010 at 9:22 am | Permalink

    Number 3.

  22. karen | August 20, 2010 at 9:24 am | Permalink

    Depends on what your aim is… Number 2 rocks, but number 1 is the prettiest and looks most “normal”… are you trying to scare off or attract strangers?

  23. Maire Smith | August 20, 2010 at 10:02 am | Permalink

    I’m sorry, but I’d go for more photos. Or number 3, if you don’t feel like taking more.

  24. samm | August 20, 2010 at 10:15 am | Permalink

    The one I would choose isn’t on the options….:) 1 is safest, 2 is most interesting, 3 could be positively hazardous.

  25. Svend | August 20, 2010 at 10:29 am | Permalink

    I take it you’re not allowed to have an animated gif cycling between all three?

    I’m kind of fond of your cartoon head. You sure you don’t want to use the Scott Pilgrim character generator, or maybe HeroMaker? 😉

  26. morgue | August 20, 2010 at 10:41 am | Permalink

    karen: I have no idea what I’m trying to do.
    Maire/samm: I found these pics on facebook and elsewhere… if anyone suggests another pic it will also be considered. But not for Twitter, that will be determined by this vote-off.
    svend: animated gifs are for the kids on /b/. Grownups don’t animate their profile pics. [not really. I just don’t personally want an animated profile pic.]

  27. Pearce | August 20, 2010 at 2:25 pm | Permalink

    Too bad that picture of you as the Master no longer seems to exist online.

  28. Naomi | August 20, 2010 at 6:53 pm | Permalink

    I think that number two would be fab, it would make me laugh out loud every time I saw it!

  29. housemonkey | August 20, 2010 at 9:06 pm | Permalink

    1 scares me. 2 and 3 both have their merits. In other words, I don’t know.
    Magic 8 ball says 1.

  30. Karen | August 20, 2010 at 9:06 pm | Permalink

    Well number 2 is at least honest…

  31. cal | August 20, 2010 at 9:44 pm | Permalink

    I vote 2! 2!

  32. Jon | August 23, 2010 at 11:27 am | Permalink

    Don’t try and lie to us, Morgue, number 2 is clearly Superman, not you.

    I vote number 2. You need number 2.

  33. Joey | August 23, 2010 at 6:15 pm | Permalink

    In the spirit of wanting to be able to point at you and laugh, I also vote 2.

  34. Kate | August 23, 2010 at 10:24 pm | Permalink

    Go #2!

    As the owner of the original copy, I get some kind of royalty fee every time you use it eh? I’m pretty sure that’s how it works.
