An update to the presented self. My front on the web. I’ve plastered it in a half-dozen portals that I frequent that require a chosen representation of self.

It’s the age of the selfie after all. By which I mean selfies are all the rage in the media, have been for months. Those who create media are finally familiar enough with it all to be dependent on it, and dependent on their own selfies to project a visage of themselves that they’ve made.

Or something. I’m not entirely sure. I know I got a haircut and decided to haul out the black metal and flash bulbs and make an update to the online me. It’s not perfect, but it’s most of the way there. The equipment was being finicky and that probably injected a bit of irk under the skin, which is slightly present here I think.

Close enough.
