Yes. For the first time in the history of my four years of existence on DA, I have changed my avatar. "Whoa there!" I hear you exclaim, "Next you'll be cutting your hair and arriving on time and being professional and all sorts of ludicrous things". But do not fear, for the individual behind the avatar remains he same. BE ALERT...but not alarmed.

I guess it's a logo of sorts :lol: I only did it temporarily for my facebook page (which is here by the way, become a fan if you havn't yet!..please, lol: www.facebook.com/pages/Simanio… ) but then never got around to doing anything else. I havn't perfected it yet, but when I do I'll upload it with some dodgy business cards and stuff heh.


I just watched The Life Aquatic again, man I love that movie. So deadpan and odd. Bill Murray is the king.

I hope you all gorged on chocolate hardcore :D

Looks nice!

I haven't changed my avatar nor signature in years. I'm thinking of changing my signature. I don't really know what to change it to, though.

Though it is unnervingly professional. O_o

Anyhoo - Bill Murray haunts my sleep. In a bad way ^^;

There is no such thing as a bad Bill Murray haunting.

And thanks about le logo, I agree. Lol. Unnerving.

You know you may be, haha! I thought it would be a good way for people to find out about Manion too, and even if they have no idea I'm happy with them reading it as "Si". Although there's already a famous designer Si Scott. It's an old fashioned Si-off.

Arharharhar I hugged Michael Tomlinson last night. He's so beautiful. Ahhh.

Oxford Arts Factory is the most amazing place ever. You live in Sydney, no? Do you go there?
Wow. I wish I didn't have to drive 8 hours to get to a city. Sadface.

Haha nice.

Yeah I've been there plenty. I don't go out all the time though...I wish I was made of money. I put a Manion sticker on the Oxford Arts wall downstairs, but they've probably removed it, lol.

You should move when you go to uni.

Indeed. But then I already know so many coolio people in Sydney. Plus family is there so I can always invade there houses for food if I end up poor as. But Melbourne is so nice. But so far away from lots of places.

Ohhh decisions. I'll just see which uni wants to except me. Yay.

Totally unrelated here is another one of my findings:


Simon + Onion = Simonion

Simonion + completely normal in every way = Simanion

define: anion
a negatively charged ion

define: sim
simulation


Simanion = simulation of a negatively charged ion


The cake is a lie!

You, sir, are clearly a genius. I have been attempting to figure out those things, albeit sporadically, for some time now. No WONDER he seems so...made-to-order. It was all a clever trap.

I'm afraid it runs deeper than that; the Simanion puzzle is clearly complex. Using standard subsitution and balancing of the two sides of the formula reveals the following:


Simonion + completely normal in every way = simulation of a negatively charged ion

(Simon + Onion) + completely normal in every way = simulation of a negatively charged ion


Then removing characters that are on both sides gives this:

on mpl orm n ey wy = u f gati hagd


which in turn is an anagram of:

God maw felony = nymph guitar



I think we should be wary of this man, my suspicions are that he is one of these inkists that runs around with scissors....

So the crimes of the Metatron are related to promiscuous female instrumentalists. Deeper and deeper. This is quickly turning into an Alice situation...
