I'm in a bit of a ragtime kick...
« on: August 29, 2011, 02:24:52 AM »
... and as such, I was tossing around the idea of changing my avatar to reflect my current mood. I want something classy, with just the hint of sexiness that makes ragtime and the turn of the 20th century irresistible to me. Yet, I've had trouble finding something like this. I was wondering if I could get some help choosing a picture and also have a thread dedicated to the enjoyment of ragtime. Both picture suggestions and songs would be wonderful.  ;D

Starting off the music:
Peacherine Rag by Scott Joplin and my all-time favorite Joplin track: Solace. I'd love to have an avatar that reminds me of Solace.

I thought maybe if you were good at cropping this one.

More cropping, but I think worth it.

These are what I thought could work.

The third one looks quite decent indeed I think. Bravo on finding those.

Can't help with the images, but I thought I'd contribute my favorite rendition of an old classic:

The Muppet Show: "The Entertainer" Part 1 & 2

Edit:  No, really - the picture doesn't do it justice.

I'm quite tempted by all of the pictures, they're wonderful. Thank you!

@Oniya: Hahaha, I have always loved the muppets.

Nice to hear, it really is hard to find ragtime stuff, because it's such a short period in American entertainment. It kind of meshes with the old style of the 1800s and then the big-band and Swing of the 20s. Still, a good period.
