My avatar is from the movie Carrie. I grew up watching horror movies, and this one actually scared me a bit, only for the fact that I thought that because I shared a name with the character, I would surely meet the same fate in life. Well, hasn't happened yet, and I made it through high school without killing a whole bunch of people (barely), so that's a good thing. Regardless, the image of Spacek in front of the flames, covered in pig's blood, is such a striking and memorable one, that I thought it suited me perfectly. Plus, I'm a horror freak, so, it's natural that I should choose an avatar that reflects that.
