How much of your icon is really YOU? Does your profile icon resemble ‘You’ in the real world or at least represent your spunk and spirit, your likes and dislikes?
A small GIF or JPEG icon can say pretty much about you- what you’re into or who you’re into at the moment which includes the movies you like, the celebrities you follow and the bands you listen to. I bet at some point your personal avatar had evolved from being a freckled-face Ron Weasley to a close-up of Taylor Lautner’s abs from Twilight and perhaps more recently, into some District-clad Hunger Games hero. True enough, profile icons define our tastes and preocuppations at the moment.
If you hate loading file heavy softwares like Photoshop just to crop or edit your icon, you’re better off trying a free online icon service like PROFICON. With Proficon, you may choose to show your lovely face or enhance that lovely face of yours with a hat or cute power animal. You may even choose other quirky profile graphics like a pig nose or a hipster mustache.
Just login using your Facebook or Twitter account, and the PROFICON app will access your current icon from your social media account, from there you can choose a number of designs and easily turn your old icon into something wild or fancy.
Mine happens to be the face of my fave celeb, my star avatar is Keira Knightley. In some alternate universe, she is close enough to what I look like in real life (yeah, right!). Well, hollywood stars do make the perfect profile icon.

Zoe Saldana looks pretty damn good when she’s portraying a blue other world inhabiting a Na’vi, but that Avatar role is nothing compared to her real world Calvin Klein ad spots which debuted this week.
Saldana appears in three online videos promoting the Calvin Klein Underwear Fall 2010 line in which she says “I’ve got nothing to hide” and for that Zoe we are very very thankful.
It wasn’t enough for this beauty to simply star in the ads, she also helped write the ads which include insights into her life, such as her “great poker face” and even a few tattoo’s you may not have known she has.
Saldana models the company’s new Envy line and I’m sure many guys will envy her after checking out the commercial spots, as if we don’t already.

So here’s an announcement worth a good laugh, 20th Century Fox has announced that James Cameron‘s Avatar will be re-released in August.
Apparently the number of 3D capable screens has “exploded” leaving the studio to re-release the film so more movie-goers can see in in 3D.
Here’s the companies official statement:
“Since – and largely as of result of – Avatar’s release last December, the number of available digital 3D screens has exploded, and moviegoers who missed experiencing the film in 3D, as well as fans that want to return to Pandora again, will now have that opportunity.”
The “limited engagement” does feature 8 minutes of new footage! Hardly worth an extra $10-$15 to see the movie again and will be re-released only for Digital-3D and IMAX 3D based theaters.
Last Sunday’s Oscar Awards left lasting memories for Hollywood’s present generation. Which one’s your favorite?
1. Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) made history when she became the first female to win Best Director, beating her ex-husband James Cameron in the process. Double wham!
For the fourth weekend in a row, James Cameron’s Avatar is still number one and has now earned $429 million in the US alone.
Don’t expect this epic 3D flick to slow down. Chances are, it will surpass the Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace record ($431 million in 1999) next weekend. It already beat the record of Spider-Man (2002) and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006).
It also took Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’s crown as 2009’s biggest moneymaker, according to E! Online. Avatar, however, still has to surpass the number one movie of all time, Titanic (1997), which was also directed by James Cameron. The unsinkable epic raked in $600 million in the box office.
Do you think Avatar has the power to beat Titanic and hit number one? Or will second fiddle be enough for the Na’vi people?

Don’t get me wrong. I loved Avatar. I watched it on 3D and enjoyed every minute of it. I even think that instead of spending millions of dollars on the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit, they should’ve just taken the whole crew to an IMAX theater to watch Avatar.
The thing is, while James Cameron’s masterpiece deserves applause, his formula isn’t exactly original. Check out this funny post making its rounds on the Internet:
