    Or SPIT, as a previous regular once called it.

    We're going to launch one of these threads a month. And down the months and years, we'll build up not only a mugshot parade of visitors to Whitechapel -- but also, for those who choose to participate monthly, there'll be a record of how we all change and grow (and in my case age horribly).

    Obviously, I encourage participation from everyone, even if you're just joining the place. This thread is certainly NOT just for the old lags. In fact, the more new faces the better.

    So. Take a photo of yourself and post it (if you're not sure how -- you put a photo on the web somewhere, a free hosting site like Flickr or Photobucket or your LJ gallery if you use LJ -- Blogger image hosting won't work -- and click the "img" button above to put the address of the image in, the http://) here.

    I'll get to mine once I'm, you know... piss off, I'm busy...


    (Those of you doing 365 projects at Flickr obviously have a head start...!)

    Here I am, carrying over the "video self portrait" theme started in January.
    Wish I could dazzle you with witty banter or amazing oratory skills, but all you get is me babbling on about the fun stuff I get to work on, which in a way IS an accurate portrait of me.
    I realize ALL my hip/cool points will be lost because of this video, but dammit, all the popular kids are doing it...

    And in case anyone is interested, the "nudity" on my wall (not PORN; I keep that in my hard drives), it is photography from my very talented friend Doug Neal. He does everything from hunky male fashion shots to ethereal, dream-like landscapes. Well worth checking out his galleries here.

    In the words of taphead: SO SELF-CONSCIOUS.

    I failed to mention Sizer's amazing announcing voice though. Sizer, you can take me to a dive bar, call it the World Of Tomorrow and I would believe it based on your voice alone. :)

    Hah! I knew it! Oldhat, you are totally better than me at the Uke because I haven't really managed strumming and changing cords yet. And as for the lack of nudity on your walls, not only do I have no nudity in my room, I have my little ponies on my bed's headboard.

    @OldHat: Robin, you do realize the only "nudity" I was referencing was the ONE PHOTO on the wall, not the bookshelf next to it.... ; )
    Nice uke work, though.
    Hope we're not "noising up" the thread too much...

    @Sizer: Sure, Paul. Sure. :P

    And I think that's the last video from me.

    I too have symbiotic moments with animals.

    @Paul Sizer: I concur with @Oldhat's appreciation of your voice.
    It's nice to be able to see you people moving. The video idea was a great one (thanks, OIdhat!)

    Been a while since my last posting here, nice to see everyone is doing well. Also I think it is very badass of everyone making the videos. Sizer you sound almost exactly how I imagined, your personality really does come through in your postings here. Oldhat you seem odd in the most fascinating way, good Uke playing. Also do I hear a Uke duet coming from Oldhat and Trini ?

    Here are a few from this weekend.

    Dear lovely people of Whitechapel,

    Have you been quietly thinking to yourself that your desktop would be so much more excellent if it featured an image of my bum?
    ... Not really?
    ... Well, anyways.... I made you this thing!
    It is available from my tumblr in three fabulously common desktop sizes.

    It is also, rather conveniently, a self-portrait.


    With affection, here is my bum.

    Good morning, whitechapel! Seantaclaus exposed me to Since I only ever seem to take self portraits with my phone, and am very tired of hipstamatic, I thank him and have come to play Bathroom Narcissus in your self portrait thread.

    @Oldhat Stop talking! Moar boobs.

    @Chris G Kitteh mindmelds are an important part of the creative process man. We get it. It's cool.

    @Paul Keep talking! Also, moar boobs.

    @eightser I'm really digging the composition of that last shot.

    @V That is freaking gorgeous.
