Gorgeous

I'd like everyone to take a moment to recognize one of the more beautiful computer-designed headers anyone's seen in quite some time. Thanks to the inimitable Yossi, I finally have my very own customized header. Yup. If you'd like him to design something for you, just ask.

Meanwhile, he also designed this for me:



Here's the original:



What say you?

Is that supposed to be you?

The Real Shliach said...

Apparently.

Yossi said...

Ok. Then: Gorgeous

The Real Shliach said...

I'm happy we agree.

Dear Mr. R.S.,

The artwork has definitely raised the level of your blog, at least in terms of its presentation. I trust that the content will continue to support such a sophisticated look.

Admiringly yours, LdT.

The Real Shliach said...

Well, you know what they say, the cholent is only as good as the guests.

e said...

Thoroughly delightful.

Altie said...

I see a resemblance.

The Real Shliach said...

e: Correct.

Altie: Ditto.

The Real Shliach said...

For even more fun, the original post has been updated.

Altie said...

The Shel Rosh is too small.

The holy Rebbe loves us all
thin and stout short and tall
that's why his pic is on my wall

The paradigm of leadership
with many had a uniquerelationship
captain of the battle ship

fearless and determined
peerless and undeterred
surelnes and perturbed

Where is the picture from?

sarabonne said...

That's it! You look like the count from Sesame Street.

Altie said...

im using firefox. still not working. maybe its a secret picture that only some people can see.

Yossi said...

I see the original picture... just like I see the emperor's new clothes

sarabonne said...

Now it's there.

The Real Shliach said...

Altie: Now it's working.

Yossi: Look again.

Sara: And?

Altie said...

oh so it was done from a photograph. cool. ya i think it's pretty good work.

of course, with everything computerized these days its not as good as a painting or even caricature would be.

The Real Shliach said...

Don't be so sure- I've had some pretty bad caricatures done of me...

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

Post them?

e said...

The computerized version looks a lot more timid that the photographed version.

sarabonne said...

The word sinister comes to mind.

The Real Shliach said...

Modeh: embarassing too.

e: timid meaning...

Sara: yes?

e said...

TRS: The slight smile and tame-looking beard on the computerized version of you looks a lot more timid than the broad smile in the photographed version of you.

sarabonne said...

Yes, what?

Feivel ben Mishael said...

I like the header.
The picture is the scariest thing I have ever seen.

The Real Shliach said...

e: Ahh.

Sara: sinister?

Feivel: why scary?

sarabonne said...

The picture. It's sinister. Almost rabbinical-serial-killer-esque.

The Real Shliach said...

Ooh, I should be the hero of my new novel.

Altie said...

or the villain

The Real Shliach said...

It's called an "anti-hero".

e said...

It's also called a villain.

Why does everyone think the picture is scary? Am I the only one who thinks it looks like a softspoken yungerman?

The Real Shliach said...

http://romancewritersrevenge.com/2009/03/31/anti-heroes-vs-villains/

I don't think it's scary.

e said...

And who appointed this crazy Harry-Potter fan as an authority?

The Real Shliach said...

Nu, find your own source- there's plenty out there.

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

An anti-hero is a villain as written by a politically correct author.

sarabonne said...

Maybe I should clarify, the photograph is creepy, not the computer version.

The Real Shliach said...

Modeh: where there is a villain there is a hero. Where there is an anti-hero there is not neccessarily a hero.

Sara: why is the picture of me creepy?

The downward angle of your face, big smile and the way the glasses cut across create a sinister appearance.

The Real Shliach said...

What are you trying to say?

sarabonne said...

I'm answering your question...?

The Real Shliach said...

Yes but.
