You are? :D :lol:

Well, I just want to be sure. They are fine hands to be sure, but before I comment, thought I'd better know. Maybe they belong to a Mr. Helgecko or something.

I know, it's a shocking revelation. :lol:

Now that I look at it again, I'm having second thoughts... the wrists look too slender to be Jemaine's, and Bret has those veins on the backs of his hands. So I'm sticking with Bret. But, what I can see of the outfit looks like something Jemaine would wear, i.e. the white t-shirt and the shorts. Hmm..... :hrm: Am I putting too much thought into this?? :lol: I need a (different) hobby. ;)

Yup, alas I had to. It totaled about 12MB with all 8 gifs. Which is like me posting 12 full size photos (ie not scaled down in size at all) in one post. So basically a lot :lol: Not really ideal for a sig :rolleyes:


Or put it another way as Max explained earlier today and had me going :shock: :shock: :shock: :thud:

O2 have the iPhone network coverage in the UK. Opening a thread with your sig in it would not cost on the UK phone plan within the UK as you pay a bundle amount for a month. However, if I were to take the same phone overseas and use it while there to open the same page, it would cost about £75 just to view your sig in a page.

How? Because if going overseas with a UK iPhone they charge your data transfer by the MB then. So 12MB would be very pricey :lol:

Gotta love WiFi :lol:

They are indeed Bret's hands, and you can see them, along with other gorgeous facets of his personality in the Black Seeds' video for One by One.

Ah yis. Very nice. :heart: Thanks Cailen.

Helgecko: Now that I am satisfied that the avatar is truly Bret, let me express my appreciation for your appreciation of his hands (and a bit of arm)...

:yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay:

Wow, I never noticed that photo in the montage. My eyes were always drawn to the "eyes". :thud:

All the talk of the angry dance in the Bret photo thread made me change my avatar accordingly. :)

Oh my LauraK, I can't believe you just mentioned Dexter in the same breath as the guys! :o We're big fans of Dexter too,and have on occasion thought that Dexter looks sorta like a fair (and specs-less) Jemaine. Obviously, there's no one truly like Jemaine :drool: , but they do seem to me to be similar 'types'. Has anyone else made this comparison? :

I made a Lily avatar which I'm using on another forum (Not fotc-related). I'm still dithering over whether to change Bret. I think Lily needs a bit of work first.

Aww, your lily gif is lovely.

I vote for keeping Bret. Wait, are we voting? Sorry. Spending too much time on the T-Shirt Smack Down, and the Tour Video threads. :wink:

It is fun to change them up. But, sigh. I'll miss them when they're gone.

If you change it, please post Bret on this thread so we can visit him. :nod: :thanks:

Hmmmm, they do have the same body-type, I think....I never really compared them. All I know is I went kinda gaga over Dex when I first watched it and Jemaine?? P'shaw.....he's real. I love the Jemaine on the show but more so the real Jemaine....at least what I know of him. He's gorgeous and talented and just a good human being. :)

I'm not so interested in Michael C. Hall in real life.....he's a good-lookin guy but we lovelovelove Dexter Morgan! Jemaine has got it all goin on. :D
