Would you just look at the time! Boy, time really flies when your camera blows up the day before the new Stock Charades is due. But when life hands you a bag of lemons the only thing to do is go and buy the camera you've been wanting to get ;-). So it's time once again for Stock Charades.

The object of the game is to be the first person to guess the original reference that this image attempts to recreate. The reference can come from TV, music videos, film, advertising - anything visual.

Since I don't employ an army of gnomes to build my sets (and therefore cannot re-create detailed backgrounds) I try hard to make the subject (me) as much like the original as possible in terms of clothing, props, pose, etc. So, just to clarify; in this image we have a Panama hat with a black band and a piece of straw in the subject's right hand. That should be enough for any diehard media junkie :D.

The first person with the correct answer wins 6 metric tons of absolutely nothing, along with bragging rights and a thorough talking up in my journal when I announce the winner. As always, bonus points for sass, back-chat, goofiness, and trivia.

Good luck. And for those who are interested, the big board looks like this:

The "I'm sorry my dear, I don't give a damn" guy from Gone With The Wind?

I'm probably wrong, I suck at things like this. ^^"

I really love this picture! I've never seen A Room with a View, but I will surely look into it. I hope you don't mind, but I just had to use your image in a recent deviation of mine: [link]

Keep up the great work!

At first glance, I saw the lawyer guy from Jurassic park. But then I ruled him out, cause he's too wussy and cowardly, and would never eat a piece of straw(Or whatever that is, it looks like you're about to chew on.)

So, I started thinking of movies, shows, Comics... Nothing, So I gave up. Then I clicked that link and saw "A room with a View." And then promptly smacked myself for not having thought of that earlier. MUCH earlier.

And yes, you must do Charades again. I want a chance to win one. XD

You know, I think there was a close one in that. No, it was from...well, you can see for yourself, if you like. The link is [link] (you may have to scroll down a couple).

Perhaps I'll start doing stock charades again.

But if I do Reservoir Dogs, you'll be sure to win. But perhaps that is your cunning plan....? Sneaky. Very sneaky. Maybe I'll do it just for fun.

I used this shot with another one to create the screenshot for this series.

I think it's a pretty awesome photo-manipulation. And I'll keep using it, if you don't mind.
jademacalla's avatar
Don't mind at all.
