  1. Working on tour t-shirts, huh? Nostril shot, XL, please.

  2. One picture of each personality? If so, are all of them self-portraits, or only the one showing the personality who took the pictures?

  3. They’re all cool, but the first one with the green background is great!

  5. See? Great enough for two — TWO! — comments.

  6. You have a lime-green wall in your house?Doesn’t everyone? Either that or salmon.My favorite room has two consecutive walls covered with mirrors, and the other two plus floor and ceiling painted flat black.

  7. Now these are possibly the ugliest pictures of the Beauteous Ghlaghghee I’ve ever seen.

    You photoshopped them, didn’t you? ‘Fess up.

  10. Can you post one where you’re actually smiling? You are cute when you grin. Not like puppies licking babies cute, but like, totally hawt in a semi-intentional balding intelligent Anthony Edwards on ER geek sort of way.

    Ok — I have no idea where I’m going with this.

    Don’t be afraid to say cheese once and awhile.

    All your pictures as is seem to scream:

    I r serius riter, this r serius bookz!

  11. As some of us comment on you/your writing on our own blogs, what is your policy on reposting pics of you from here?

  12. I like them all, but I really think that up-nostril shot really captures what we, your fans, come to the Whatever for.


  13. Scalzi….buddy….bubbula. You know I love you, right babe? Listen. Me and the gang…we don’t know how to tell you this, but….well, listen, this is an intervention.

    Oh, I know…you don’t have a problem. They all say that. First it’s just a little saturation here, then a little color balance there…next thing you know, you’re rendering drop shadows in a separate layer with an alpha blend off of some kid’s stomach in the valley. Don’t look at me like that…you know it’s true.

    I’m just saying….you’ve got a filter problem. It happens to the best of us. But together, we can beat this thing.

  14. Cassie:

    Actually, that wall is baby blue. However I took the picture without a flash, and the lighting in the room is a bit yellow. This is what you get with those conditions.


    Oddly, I rarely smile in pictures I take of myself. I don’t know why. It’s not like I actually try to cultivate an “I are surios riter” aura, after all.

    J.D. Finch:

    Feel free to repost any of these pictures.


    No, thank God.


    Nonsense. I can stop anytime.

  15. You know, you can’t see a single nose hair in that picture.

  16. The second one make you look like you’re in som ehip club dancing to some music that requires stobe lights.

  17. shortly after receiving an email criticizing you for being self-promoting and you-focused….you decide to post pictures of yourself. perfect snub. you crack me up. I will never delete the Whatever from my bookmarks.

  18. So your first post on your wife’s birthday is a montage of photos of yourself? Nice…

    I know — you can just tell her you really meant to hit the post button at 11:59 Tuesday night…


  19. I actually posted the montage last night at 11pm, but I moved the publishing date forward an hour so I wouldn’t have so many entries on the same day.

  20. Egads, man! Here I give you cover and you go and blow it like that…

  21. you shouldn’t do that you put up stupid posters

  22. Loser:

    At least you label yourself accurately.

  24. Third is my favorite, followed by the 1st with your fuzzy light halo and nice range of greens.

  25. You said you were going to DDR your way to fitness and I’ve been curious if you’ve been successful. (Jan 31 “Chunky McChunkerson” post) These pictures look a little more slender than most of the ones I’ve seen previously (author shots on books, older posts). Being a former member of Clan McChunkerson, I wish you the best.
