stock_charades_13 see notes by jademacalla stock_charades_13 see notes by jademacalla
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:

3 wins for

3 wins for

1 win for

1 win for shockff [link]

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.

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.

I so totally know who that's supposed to be! I swear it's on the tip of my damn fingers...
I can see him, hear him and damn near taste him (okay, not that sense I suppose).
I wonder if it's an older-type movie because something wants me to say the main character from the movie 'Harvey'...
Reply
:iconjademacalla:
jademacalla Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2005
Not Harvey, but I can easily see how that look could remind people of Jimmy Stewart.

:iconbloodyragdoll:
BloodyRagDoll Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2005  Hobbyist Writer
Hmm. Well okay. Thanks for eliminating that one for me.

I can still see it, something still other than 'Harvey'.
It might help if I watched movies (and such) and was better able to retain their titles and the character's names.
Oh well. If I think of it I'll guess again. Pfft, and I bet as soon as someone guesses the right answer it'll come to me. Yarg.

Is it the dude with the Panama hat in the beginning of 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'? He ends up going over board and all you see is the hat floating in the water.

It's just the hat, and kinda the pose... i suppose it was probably derived from whatever this actually is.

I need to put on my "serious question" hat for a second.

There's something about your comments/descriptions/etc. that strikes me as uncommonly funny. Are you a pro (i.e. comedy writer, comedian, etc.)? Or are you just getting ready to be one? Or are you one of those cats who are extremely funny, but don't really realize it?

Your American fans really want to know.

Your camera BLEW UP? Exactly how does something like that happen?

I want to say Bogart, but that's already been eliminated. As have Sinatra and Dean. Damn, I have no more ideas!

Since there was no event that caused it, I'm not sure. (it didn't actually explode, of course, although the images it now produces look like the subject has exploded.)

Trivia: Panama hats are actually made in Ecuador. They were brought to the US during the California gold rush.
