You vs your evil twin, who wins?

I took this image as reference for a comic I had in Other magazine about a year ago. I ended up posting the photo to consumating as a response to their question “You vs. your evil twin! Who wins?” with the comment “both of us, obviously.”

Wired is having a self portrait photo contest this week, and Consumating is going the way of the dodo, so I thought it appropriate to dust off this photo.

Currently my entry to the wired contest is on this page, but I’m unsure as to whether it will migrate if it goes up or down in popularity. Vote for me?

As for Consumating, this is it’s last week of life.
from their site:

Thank you for being a part of We have some sad news. We have made the decision to shut down on March 14th, 2008. Our audience wants and deserves a site that is vibrant and fresh, and we don’t think it.s fair to you to keep an unsupported site live.

We understand that your profile data is important to you and have created a way for you to extract it (does NOT include points, pictures or videos). You’ll have to verify your login.

Save this file because it could be imported into another site built similarly to Consumating. We encourage this activity and the open source code (“Clonesumating”) is located here. I’ll do my best to address any of your questions and concerns here in this conversation.

Again, thanks to all the hot nerdy girls and indie rock boys (with or without glasses) for making this a good place to find people that don’t suck.

I always liked Consu because it encouraged you to find people you didn’t already know who were into the same stuff…as opposed to all the other social networking sites that just had you populate your friendslists with folks you already knew IRL.

The internets weep for you, Consumating, they truly do.

    It is truly bittersweet. I had such a hate/love relationship with that site but made some lovely lovely friends, a couple I even consider to be very close-to-my-heart! RIP CONSU!
