I did not want to stare for 12 hours a day at my mugshot (at least not that mugshot), so I sent in the above as an alternative, which I had mocked up on Photoshop. It’s based on a previous Photoshop I made back in early 2010, inserting my face, with a little touch-up via Photoshop’s paint function, into Edward Hopper’s “Nighthawks” for my Twitter account’s background page:

My sincere apologies to the ghost of Edward Hopper — but then, from the Simpsons to Star Wars, who hasn’t parodied or mucked about with “Nighthawks” in the last 30 years or so?

I’m not sure how long it will last, but that’s the story behind the banner du jour.
