Also, while I'm thinking about it, a friend recently suggested that I switch my profile picture from this:
She thinks that, at the very least, I should post a "suave Matt photo" to attract new viewers.
I mean, sure it is a better picture of me. And it would be a free advertisement for "Matt's Cuban Style Roast Pork Sandwich" (available at the delightful New York Deli, located just outside of Kobe! Convenient to BOTH Hankyu Okamoto Station and Settsu-Motoyama Station! Tell Junko I said hello!).
But, considering that I'll be attempting to get a literary agent soon, I think I was hoping to achieve some sort of brand-name recognition. (Hence that Doc mugshot being my profile picture on The Facebook and The Twitter and on the alumni page of my high school). My rationale was that the photo was just so god-awfully bad that, when people saw it, they would want to stick around just to see what it was all about.
When I pointed this out to her, she replied, "Doc Brown - though interesting - is not as hot as 'not Doc Brown".
What do you think? Comment below or email me.
(I believe the children are our future) UPDATE:
According to my friend Kate in Portland:
Its funny when I go to FB and my 2 year old sees your profile pics on the wall he says mommy, THAT!Mark one for old Doc.
