Rick in his office. With a giant picture of his face on the wall.

I'm not kidding. This is really his office. Good god almighty.

I seem to recall a certain man behind the mic who was ragging on a certain darling of the airwaves for having an ego. *cough*

Any way we can get Rick and Tim (Savage) in a ring together with oversized boxing gloves?

Hey... Why does Rick's giant paper head have more hair than his pink pasty head?

Me thinks there were some Photoshoppery...

Joe said...

Aaron - you gave me an idea...

That's GOD DAMNED creepy!

Hardly. There isn't enough wall in the building for a proper representation of Rick's ego!

I will pay $10 via PayPal to ANYONE (engineers, Tim, Sarah, Cort, Savage...) who goes into his office and draws and enormous black moustache on his face in huge black marker, photographs it and puts it online.

I'm serious. Ten easy bucks, man!

That's not a picture. That's a telescreen. And you'll all have them in your offices soon! DYLAN! GET BACK TO WORK! OCEANIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN AT WAR WITH EURASIA! RICK EMERSON HAS ALWAYS HAD HAIR!

Steve said...

Was that picture Pre-Plug or Post Plug?

Shovelhead said...

Know who else used to make giant paper heads of themselves to inflate their ego? Try Michael Jackson circa the "Thriller" era.

Now, if Rick would just light his pluggy hair on fire ala "Pepsi" Jacko, they'd be twins.

Robert said...

The most amazing thing about this photo is that he was actaully captured on film with his mouth closed!

Just kidding bud,

Best talk show host ever!

I swear -that reminds me of those iconic images from both 1984, Vendetta, and even recent images from N. Korea of our glorious leader. Just imagine Rick standing proud with some fruit salad on some random military uniform, instead of slouching and looking like someone just told him all the donuts from the kitchen are gone.

seumas said...

I, for one, welcome my new fascist geek overlord.

stevobar said...

This is most troubling...Rick is becoming the Kim Jong Il of Portland's airwaves...is the the beginning of a cult of personality, or simply the machinations of an ego run amok?

I'm sure we'll all stay tuned to find out how this ends...my own prediction is that it will not end well...

Now would not be a good time to quit therapy, Rick.

Richard said...

That's lickety-HOT!

Rob said...

We need to accumulate all of the photoshopped versions in one place. Anyone? Bueller?

Ash said...

6ish''
170ish lbs

Rick Emerson has a posse.

Needs to be photoshopped.

I have bigger pictures of myself around my home so I can't take a shot there. It is strange though that a picture this bad, of a very common looking average white guy would make the cut, even from such a broken mind as Rick's. Does the phrase "ugly American" ring a bell.

Gorilla Cookie Central.

But on a brighter note, there is a strong resemblance between Rick in this picture and that "dishy" actor that is both in Northern Exposure and Sex and the City. John something? The chicks dig that guy so maybe Rick should be in love with himself.

After all, Rick is a chick, right?

Tim Hardaway RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
F-Porland!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is he sensitive about the fact he's balding fast and will be hairless in a few years?

KVL said...

It doesn't appear he's much of a poster spokesmen for the "hair treatment for men" or whatever crap is suppose to make him grow a toupet that he keeps doing ads about. Oh well . . . it's amazing how radio people's charisma is all in voice and no appearance.

seumas said...

No that I really know what's in women's heads but I frankly think Rick is better looking that most of us assholes and even he gives himself credit for. And as long as you're not a fugly dude, having many thousands of people find you interesting enough to listen to for hours a day and people willing to watch your screenplays and one man shows makes you attractive to women the same way being married does. If other people find you interesting, girls find you interesting.

As far as the hair, I still think he should have just shaved it off. I don't care what he says, he could pull it off. Maybe not as well as the shaved look works on me, but still pretty well. And better than anything, it's low maintenance! At least, compared to having long hair which only happens when I'm lazy for weeks on end :D

That kicks more ass than anything that has ever kicked ass before. Don't ever take it down.

seumas said...

I'd buy that "mural". I would put it up in my decorationless apartment. Seriously. That'd be rad. And creepy. And a little homoerotic.

Greg said...

I'm guessing this picture was taken not very long ago.

It looks like the 'whispies' are beginning to show up which is just about right time wise for when Rick had the procedure.

By August or so all follically-challenged males will be green with envy and bow before him.

Rick has the lovely and intelligent Laura, so he's certainly not concerned that he is attractive to other women only that he is attractive to his wife and is himself pleased with his appearance, as self-image is more important to most of us than we are willing to admit.

Now that we’re passed all of the hair issues, the giant poster of himself on the wall is just creepy. There is no foreseeable end to therapy Mr. Emerson.

KVL said...

Since Rick mentioned specifically on the air once that those who creatively annoy others gain his respect, even if they annoy him, I thought I'd give him a rant.
