It looks like a bunch of boxes falling into a bunch of line the Dreamer. And some very tiny text which looks like it was obviously resized smaller.

That lady in your sig looks just like a lady I know Dakar.

The text was blurred out a bit so as not to be able to be read.
It is just the title of the image written on top, but you see something I do not or visualize it differently than I do which is what the point is.

It is dreams that will survive, for a dream is immortal.

I grew up way, way after the Beatles too.

But yeah, if you don't know the Beatles, I don't expect you to be able to figure it out. Just think its clean cut and dapper.

So, you blurred two point text?

EDIT: upon closer inspection it is 3 point text. Still, why? And you can clearly read the word symphony in it.

I know the Beatles at my current age, when I was younger they were not an "it" thing I listened to. I have come to like them more and more over the past few years, along with a bunch of other groups from a similar time period.

It is dreams that will survive, for a dream is immortal.

Yeah so?
Should I have used a different filter on the text?

The Beatles are pretty ageless. To not know about the White Album is just simple ignorance and a lack of knowledge of American Culture.

Side Note: I named my daughter after a Beatles White Album song. Hint: it's not Rocky Raccoon.

I guess your sense of art and creativity is way beyond mine. i'll bow out of this discussion where I am clearly out of my league.

Good day sir.

Umm....wow.
No offense, but I grew up liking classical music and while the Beatles was something I enjoyed I never bought, learned, or was to in depth in them so not everyone must know about the Beatles, or know everything about them (or specific things).

It is dreams that will survive, for a dream is immortal.

Let me guess, you named her after her conception. Why Don't We Do It In The Road? seems like an awfully long name though.

I'll bet they had more fans in America than they did in England. (I am more than prepared to lose that bet though)

Close, and another hint, it's not Dear Prudence.

No offense taken. It's your ignorance.

Is this really about pure numbers though? They're a British band.

Excuse me?
Just because a band changed your life or something does not mean it did the same for others. I know the Beatles were a great band, I know they changed music, I listen to them currently for inspiration and to enjoy, but just because I am not 100% aware (as it seems you are) of every little thing about them does not give you the right to say "It's your ignorance."

It is dreams that will survive, for a dream is immortal.

And David Hasslehoff is a major part of German Culture. I'm not saying the Beatles are exclusively American, but they are a major part of our culture.

I have the right to say just about anything that is not against the rules here. It may not be the right thing to say, but I do have the right to say it.

Her name just HAS to be "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da." It's all it can be!






I personally like the "Cinerama" proportions of the current sig picture guidelines. On the other hand, I have to wonder at all the "my Mac collection" text sigs I see. I'd rather see one line of interesting stuff -about the member- than four lines of cataloging of the member's Mac holdings. I like the quotes, the interesting links, the subjects I never would have though to look into, and so on. And on the picture side, I think a small rectangle makes us have to be more creative-and we all seem to succeed pretty well on that score. For example, Railroader's picture is of an amazing building, Demonhood's is of a Jawa-from a con or something I guess, theDreamer's... darn interesting whatever it is-something about a symphony I think, and of course Dakarʒ's "Venture Brothers" makes me want to figure out just what "the Venture Brothers" is. It's all very interesting and at the same time keeps us from becoming signature-bound like so many of the UGLY forums around. We're supposed to be about content, not someone boasting about things like their parrot's latest word list or that sort of foolishness. And I think the current size picture pushes us to think hard about what we want to use to symbolize us.

You really are working on a different level here.
I got it as soon as I read the sig's name.

That stole their sound from American culture.

Buddy Holly, Elvis, the Delta Blues... Chuck Berry... all inspirations to the Beatles. With the first few mentioned the Beatles, Stones, etc wouldn't have existed.

Having said that, copying these groups were part of the English culture in the 60s.

This is why it would be really cool if we could include gif's in our signature.

This is why we ban them. Frankly, you CAN use a gif picture as your signature. Just not an animated gif. Not only would animated signatures slow down the forums (we won't host them, so every user has to fetch the sig pictures for each and every poster in each thread they look at), but animated gifs like that would drive people crazy. That one is annoying enough, but there are others I've seen on other boards that are intentionally disturbing, at least visually.

Finally, do you realize that you dredged up a thread that's almost two years old JUST to post your annoying fly gif?
