Title: YOU THEN YOU NOW
Post by: Drill King on 15 Aug 2008, 14:40
So it's probably been done before, but it's always fun to do! Take a picture from a while ago (doesn't really matter how long I guess, a couple years) and take a picture from you now and viola! Comparison between you then and now

I really hated old me I was very angst and wounds do not heal blah blah blah.
 
Anyhow. 14 to 17

I think I made some pretty alright changes, even though I don't look any older.. just better.

The most marked improvement is I got a bit better at smiling it seems.

I tried finding an even older picture of me from whenever I was like 12 and made a Skateboard Team web site, but I guess Google stopped indexing it or angelfire finally deleted it.

Man, I am so ready for this. Last time we had this thread I missed it by a couple days, but now I have a photo album. Pictures are a little big, but I don't care.

Here is me as a little baby!

2002. My rebellious phase was over quickly, thank God, and mostly amounted to me listening to punk rock and dying my hair red.

It's a great shirt.  I am the husband of a (retired) librarian and the father of a (non-retired) librarian, so it fits well.  I also bought one for my son-in-law, who is married to the (non-retired) librarian, and he likes it, too.

Plus it was a lot of fun to wear when I was doing FOSS library system installations.

Dominic, you probably get this a lot but in the last photo you look uncannily like John Lennon when he had short hair post-Beatles.

I have actually never heard that since i cut my hair. When i was 16, though, with long brown hair and round glasses, well, a certain group of people outright refused to refer to me in any way other than "John". I think that is because the stereotypical image most people have of John Lennon is either that of the early '60s or that of him with very long hair.

Unfortunatly I don't have a picture from that period.
Title: Re: YOU THEN YOU NOW
Post by: tommydski on 16 Aug 2008, 09:00
It's not the usual 'LOL sunglasses & long hair = Lennon' thing, you actually look a lot like him in terms of your facial definition.

I liked that look, although (and you can't tell from that photo) the facial hair was really terrible. My hair is headed back in that direction, though; maybe I'll bleach it again.

Thank God, no offense about your current do, but it is not NEARLY as flattering as the other one. You look good with bleached hair.

Yep. Sure do. That's why I try to stick to short hair these days.

This is me on April 20th, 2005, at age 13. I know this because this is my current passport. I don't get a new one till 2010. Its kinda sad.

This is me on September 3rd, 2006, as the photo says, at age 15. I believe I was in line for Great Bear at Hershy Park. I have no idea why my face is so weird. Oh well.

(http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee175/antithesis9/n1230180027_30064098_1595.jpg)

This is me at the end of July, last year. That puts me at 16. Whoo.

Post by: ZJGent on 18 Aug 2008, 19:30
I wish I could contribute to this thread, but I guess I tell everyone of how after age five or so, til I was fourteen, I was really not a very pretty looking thing at all. So when I hit fourteen, and puberty, and reaching my current state of "not great but hey it could be worse eh", I burnt (somewhat ritually) all the pictures of me before that point. It was mostly on account of I used to be awfully awfully awfully short. And fat. Those two are not a good combination, and it resulted in me approaching a state of being wider than tall, no lie. And then spotty as well - and sweaty. I was definitely not a cute-looking kid. Or a nice-looking youth. I was actually foul-looking. So, now, instead of seeing the pictures, you are going to have to imagine a nasty-ass-looking Drick waddling through Reading city when younger.

Anyhow, I only have that one baby picture and everyone's seen it a million times.

Post by: David_Dovey on 18 Aug 2008, 21:43
Yeah I was pretty fat when I was about age 13-17 as well, but you're not gonna get to see those photos, but that's mainly because they're on film, and I'm not doing any fucking scanning for this thread.

Obligatory baby shot

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a55/ddovey/baby3-1.jpg)

This is me on my School Leavers trip, pretty much my 17th birthday. This photo was taken a few minutes after my eyebrows got shaven off.
My head was already like that, I had a mohawk for a few weeks and then shaved it off.

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a55/ddovey/leavers18.jpg)

After Leavers I started growing my hair long. I guess I started drinking a lot as well?

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a55/ddovey/shane19th34.jpg)

New Year's Eve 2004, so I had just turned 18.

By my 19th birthday in 2005 I looked like this

(http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a55/ddovey/23-11-05_1237.jpg)

and then I more or less looked the same for two years until I got a haircut in 2007

(http://a456.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/31/l_cfe56c39887420d490fc59cab32171bf.jpg)

I'm joining in here primarily so that this thread doesn't die, it's too awesome to die! I don't have many pictures of me as a small child but here are some fairly recent ones.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v614/barmymoo/IMG_1421.jpg)

My mum's partner was looking through some old photos and came across a bunch from when my family visited him when I was about four and his wife was still alive (they were our godparents, it's ironic really). The small child in pink dungarees is my brother. The house is where I live now. Weird.

Sixteen, I believe, in the Czech Republic with orchestra.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v614/barmymoo/elly_me.jpg)
Last month, 17,  in Durham. My hair has got longer, my face a bit thinner and I no longer wear that hat although I still have it. It's terrifying how similar I look. I also have one from about three or four years later, and it's clearly me even though I'm ten years younger than I am now. If that makes sense. Perhaps I should dye my hair or cut it off or something?

While I was looking through old and new pictures that I could post in this thread, I realized that I haven't changed a bit over the last four years. From sixteen to (in a month) twenty: Nothing! Well, maybe my hair, but that has nothing to do with aging. Want proof?

Life of a Patatat (Get ready for me to look the same age through all of these. Unfortunately, I don't have my oldest picture anymore which I ironically look the oldest in.)

Large gap from 14-16 because I deleted my myspace and forgot to save my pictures

Embarrassing picture at 16, this is with my piercings out... 2005ish?
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/Bajorek/Myspace2/IM003090.jpg?t=1221763756)

Embarrassing picture later, 2005/2006ish?
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/Bajorek/IM002971.jpg)

I traveled back in time to take this picture in 1980... or at least thats what the date on the Camera told photoshop..

2006... I believed I could fly.

Still 2006, I was an executioner. Who had bad taste in hats and baseball teams.
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/Bajorek/warscene.jpg)

2007... I dont remember any of it. Let me give you an example... I took a vacation to Chicago, I forgot my clothes. That was after a night of already being out there.
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/Bajorek/Chicago/DSCN0467.jpg)

2007... I went to the rural area, I drunkenly rowed boats and played card games.
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/Bajorek/Chicago/DSCN2099.jpg)

2007... I am starting to remember. I wish I didn't.

Validate my internet existence!

To elaborate this more than the original douche baggery to respond to douche mongery I had initially intended: This is not "a photo thread." It is a thread that contains photos. There is a strict point to this thread and while I don't really care for said point, don't get your shit all up in a knot when someone calls you on basically ignoring the point of the thread. It may hurt your apparently delicate ego to realize this, but there's very little point in a ten or so image photodump to exhibit a scant three years of your life unless you're Drick and go through more styles in two months than most people do in two decades.

Edit: That part was thrown up quickly after making the post. For a reference point to Patatat's follow up, pretend I only posted the Quote portion. Upon immediate reflection, I decided it needed elaboration and Patatat responded in that time. This is being thrown in for the sake of not post-grabbing too badly.

You just didn't need to have so many photos for only three years, is all.  The point of the thread was to show how different you looked back whenever, not to post every picture that happened along the way.  

Personally, I would've dropped number 2,3,4,6,8 and 10.  Probably wouldn't have created such a backlash with half the photos.

PS: Sorry for bringing it right back up.

While that might be true, there is going to be some circling of the wagons when anyone calls Manda (or indeed any of our alumni) a bitch. If there wasn't, I'd be relatively concerned.

Manda is one of us, don't give her shit. Shrug it off amicably, throwing around words like that is going to draw ire from someone.

That's hardly a good attitude for what is supposed to be an open forum that anybody can contribute to. I understand you all like to maintain your own little group, but attacking people that aren't part of your group doesn't help the forums at all - and heaven forbid that the person responds in kind, because then the rest of you will all jump down their throat.

Anyone can contribute.

However, if you call one of my friends a bitch on this forum, I'm going to warn you against it. I can't stop you from doing it but I can definitely advise that it's a good way to upset people, as we've seen. Maybe Manda was a tiny little bit harsh there but honestly, the best thing to do is just walk it off or make a joke of it. Being hostile about it isn't the answer.

I don't know redglasscurls at all. I've never talked to her and didn't side with her on any matter of her internet popularity or some such. I responded because she made a valid observation that a good many of us were probably thinking ourselves. She wasn't particularly rude about it, just a little snarky, which is par for the course on this forum (And pretty much every forum I go to, for that matter). He decided to take it way overboard and call her an unfounded name. It's got nothing to do with who she is, that's just general intolerable disrespect on what is generally a respectful forum. I'm generally held as a huge dick, but I still don't tend to go around calling people a bitch over something so trivial.

Edit: Man, I sure did say general a lot in there. I have a vicious head cold, please pretend that was fully coherent. I'm pretty sure the point came across: Don't be shitty and you won't be treated shitty.

I like how your glasses in the middle picture are super chunky framed military spec bastards, and after all the rough and tumble was over you reverted to the clean-line circular silver ones. As though whichever branch of fighting legion you applied to demanded that you attend their "all-weather, all-terrain" optician!

P.S. I prefer the silver ones - they suit you much better!

Alright, I can only go as far back as being a freshman in high school.
So lets start there.

(http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a127/r3an1m4t3d/jace1.jpg)
Look at me, with my wear pants so low and my ridiculous long hair. In the background was the damnable hat I wore all the time. Oh being a freshman. Pretty sure I was 14, but it might have been near christmas, so I would have been 15.

(http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a127/r3an1m4t3d/100_4598.jpg)
So yeah, I grew my hair really long... I don't know what the hell I was thinking. I was a sophomore there. I was 15

(http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a127/r3an1m4t3d/preconcert.jpg)
So, yeah, I had a devilock. And I was that guy, just because I was going to see the misfits. I was a junior there. It was october 20th. Later that night, I got me some in the back of my car. I still had the devilock. I was 16

(http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a127/r3an1m4t3d/PB010026.jpg)
I sorta had a devliock, I just never wore it, also curly hair thanks to wearing a luchador mask to an mc chris concert. This was like 20 days after I graduated high school. It was halloween. I was still 17 though.

(http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a127/r3an1m4t3d/IMG00165.jpg)
Minutes ago. I have found that between the time I graduated high school and now, I have learned to fucking smile. And I'll be 19 in like a month and a half.
Title: Re: YOU THEN YOU NOW
Post by: De_El on 22 Sep 2008, 00:49
Your new smile is very goofyfriendly.  I actually thought that your hair looked pretty okay in the 1st and 4th pics, but it is also fitting as it is now.

Thank you? I like to smile now, people either get scared like "why is he smiling, there's people wanting to fight" or they're all "oh wow, he looks really happy even though he's wearing the most ugly tie evar"

Also, in retrospect, I may have had a mohawk in the 4th picture, it looks like I'd shaved the sides of my head a few weeks prior, which would make sense. I did that for a while.

And a bonus 21 picture to showcase the fact that I actually allowed my hair to get long AND remain my natural hair color (something I hadn't done since 7th grade)

And though not the most recent picture of me, of those I have online this best showcases the hair I have right at this moment (a bit longer now) and my newest glasses. I'm 22.

Hmm, something in Page 2 of this thread makes my browser go GRAAAAAARAGRRHAGHGRHAAHGAHRGRGRHUABL*die*.

Anyway, It's my turn now!

Here I am at 15, at a school party. Yes, I had spiked hair. That was thankfully not a regular thing.
Circa 2001
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y107/Mosag/detvardengang.jpg)

2003-ish. I had grown me some hair, and gotten contact lenses. I really miss that hair nowadays, because the sheer weight and thickness of it made it awesome for headbanging, even though it wasn't THAT long.

(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y107/Mosag/SIMG2450.jpg)

Then at one point, I had military service. The cutting of hair isn't mandatory in the danish army, but it is still a LOT more practical. I shudder to think how it would have been to wear those helmets with my thick-ass hair.
Mid-2005
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y107/Mosag/armyboi.jpg)

Then I started a band that went nowhere, save for the cover of a shitty local newspaper.
Circa 2006, May-ish.
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y107/Mosag/covergirl.jpg)

Then I got a new pair of glasses, which I've worn a lot since.
This is a month ago. This also goes to show, that the way I dress has not changed AT ALL. Now I just have cooler bands on my T-shirts.
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y107/Mosag/Foto188.jpg)
