Doppelgangers in the Jungle

Did you know that you can search for your doppelganger on Google? Forgive me for not finding this out sooner, but apparently you can go to the image search and upload a photo of yourself (or your cat, or both because see below) and Google generates similar images.

I don’t have a lot of photos of myself because duh, I’m the one taking the photos, but of the few I have, the first was matched with a redheaded lady in a vintage Coca-Cola ad and the second one (with The Cat) was matched with Axl Rose. No lie. This was the photo I searched:


That’s me with The Cat, also my Bill Murray-as-Han Solo shirt. Obviously the most rock n’ roll photo of me in existence, because this is the page of results:

iamaxl axlisme

Which actually makes a lot of sense when you consider the red hair, the scowl, and the palpable badassery-turned-future-batshit-insanity. Also, I once very nearly dressed as Axl for Halloween but ditched the idea when I couldn’t find his “Nobody Knows I’m a Lesbian” t-shirt. Also, I was a little concerned that people would be like “I TOTALLY KNEW YOU WERE A LESBIAN.”

    Ha ha! I never thought you were Axl Rose but your name on MySpace did help.

    So people think you’re a lesbian? A lot of people think I’m gay. I’m not and don’t really mind that people think I am. My behavior, at times, is not always the most masculine. I’ve decided for simplicity sake to say I’m bi (I’m not).

    I just did this. I am not sure why, but anytime I ever do something like this, I end up getting people who are either Spanish or Asian or men. ??–isAa1DIqQAWw6llRDrSRiHecxG9LaTXo1PWN7Jdk7XothoEHmIU2OLK3avi-QfVgwYj6i3diYYyBarM5NNE7rSXyUuPcifJafFbKvgZXAICyCySiT2j8S5YjFHbhLJMJ-qRL5k_1Bo1UaN3rB7sStRZeD3SiDOiinsLoM_18UmQ2fyJcd8bB-GYpHtQ4RSgqQrNzahezr2wzCa83BdK&btnG=Search%20by%20image&bih=395&biw=837
