Very interesting Michel. I just happen to live in the "Karl Marx Hof" here in Vienna, Austria. Small world isn't it.

Wow, that is one amazing apartment complex!

I was in Vienna just before Christmas, meant to go to Heiligenstadt but never made it.

Mike, you still have the same avatar, how boring! :D  Even Sarge changed his avatar. ;D

Modify I was mistaken, that was Sarge's sig that I was looking at, not his avatar.

My avatar is Robson Green.  He starred in Touching Evil and Wire in the Blood.  I have loved Touching Evil ever since I first saw it, but only recently had a chance to watch the first series of Wire in the Blood.  He is playing the same type of character, and he's awesome. :)  In both series he catches murderers by getting into their heads, how they think, to profile them and also sometimes anticipate their actions.

I can already tell you now that my next avatar will be the other show I'm currently watching.  I'll say more in a week or two when I change my avatar. :)

Now, that second show is really worth watching, esp the first series. Quite original and superbly acted.

Yeah it is really great.  The library has all but the previous season, which comes to pbs this summer.  It's my favorite show right now.  Drama and subtle, but deep, acting elevates Foyle's War beyond the exaggerated melodrama that I'm used to from tv shows.    The mysteries are pretty clever and the premise of the show is an interesting one.

I also watch Inspector Lynley-- it's amusing that the show caught on and became so popular in Britain, because it's written by an American author.  Elizabeth George lives in California! :D  Since I don't know anything about the UK, I wouldn't even know what would be inaccurate about it, but I like it.  Anyway Lynley was my previous avatar, and before that it was Psych. ;D

So while Bill's avatars are different, we both are working on the same theme. :)

You seen Rebus or Messiah (DI Red Metcalf) with Ken Stott...you would like those David.

Rebus is set in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Ken Stott must be the hardest Detective on the Planet (Being Scottish you can well guess, Mike will confirm this  ;D )

Oh Rebus... that's Ian Rankin, I've read one of those novels, but that was a few years back, I don't recall it that well.  Just recall it being very dark! :D

Very dark and seedy David, bit like a Mahler 6th  ;D

Stott is the guy who played Hitler in Uncle Adolf, the Chubbiest, Scottish sounding Nazi you are ever likely to come across  ;D  First time I ever saw Hitler Nut somebody in the Head. LOL

The Inspector Lynley mysteries are pap I think. The books are bad enough, but the TV adaptations eviscerate even the set up between the detectives. She is clueless about British society and it is more fantasy than anything else.

George spent a lot of money and time trying to prove that Jack the Ripper was the painter Walter Sickert. The 'evidence' was the usual guess work or tenuous, it would not even get him arrested these days.

As to Rebus...top show, Stott is so believeable and indeed it is dark. The actor John Hannah, (He who was incapable of sustaining an English accent in The Mummy.) bought up some of the book rights and was Rebus in several of the stories, hopeless, like a gawky daft laddie. Stott is the real deal. And I always like to see Edinburgh, even its underbelly.

Modify I was mistaken, that was Sarge's sig that I was looking at, not his avatar.

I remain fundamentally opposed to cosmetic surgery and frequent changes of avatar. I first used my avatar five years ago and it has been an unchanging presence thoughout cyberspace. I walk into a chatroom anywhere and I'm instantly recognized. Kids beg for my autograph; men slap me on the back and offer to buy me a beer; women want my body. My unwavering commitment to those 100x100 pixels is celebrated in some circles as an example of steadfastness and loyalty that all persons of clean mind and sound body should emulate...or was that sound mind and clean body? Whatever... I know who I am, I am what I am, and I will go to my grave with my Sgt Rock avatar. The only way they'll make me give it up is to pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Sarge, feeling a bit Charlton Heston'ish tonight ;D

"hey, they made a movie about
Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

Well, it was very moving... Made me think about my own rather happy-go-lucky avatar customs...
