All Things Vincent

 'All Things Vincent' Introduction:

Who am I?

All Things Vincent is the title of my new blog. It honestly didn't take me very long to come up with this. I hope no one else out there is using this name. I don't believe anyone is, but you never know...

Anyway, my blog and blogger name have a kind of theme about them. For all you X-Files fans out there, I hope you figured it out by now. As much as I love Vincent D'Onofrio and Criminal Intent, my first love was The X-Files. Notice the past tense by the way. =)

I know a few people have wondered about my name and finally built up the courage to ask me. For those of you still wondering, a little explanation before I get on with bigger and better things (hint: VDO because he's bigger and most definitely better). For those of you that don't give a shit and just want me to get on with Vincent, just hold on for a few minutes while I ramble on for a few paragraphs. LOL

OuroborosSnyder is my name. Well, not entirely. I first learned of the word 'ouroboros' from an episode of The X-Files, episode: Never Again (season 4). To make a long story short, Scully got a tattoo of an ouroboros. What does an ouroboros look like? Well, there isn't one picture that dictates what the design should exactly be per se.  Scully's was simplified, but here's what one can look like:

What is an ouroboros? If you're that interested, you can read here: Ouroboros. Basically, it's a dragon or a snake (serpent) devouring it's tail. That's the simplified version, but it symbolizes the re-creating of ones self and denotes eternity or eternal life. Get it? =)

Now that we have the ouroboros part covered, what's Snyder? There's nothing too it, really. If you haven't notice by now, I sign everything at the end with ~Snyder~. Snyder is simply my name. To be more specific, my last name. Years and years ago, I put the two words together and, voila, I got the name OuroborosSnyder that I now use all around the internet.

Why did I choose 'All Things Vincent' as a title to my blog? All Things, actually known as 'all things' (all lowercase), was an episode of the X-Files that all true fans know about. It's possibly the episode in explaining a lot about the show (or at least how the relationship between Mulder and Scully got started). Gillian Anderson wrote the episode and made sure that it was known that the episode was all in lowercase, however I changed it. I originally put it in lowercase, but it didn't look right.

So there you have it. I hope to create a blog picture like all you other people out there with awesome Vincent blogs have, but I'm not superb with it comes to photoshop. Actually, I quite suck. LOL. Hopefully I'll be able to come up with something though - maybe even incorporate an ouroboros in there somewhere. =)

Well, after torturing you with my story, I think you deserve some pictures, don't you think?

Nothing too special this time - just some yummy pictures I picked out that I enjoy looking at. Actually, every picture of Vincent is special IMO. =)

Wishing You A Better Thanksgiving Than Bobby Had...

First of all, I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

And because I just have to mention Vincent one way or another, I hope you have a better Thanksgiving than Bobby did in the episode The War at Home.  Vincent, where ever you are, Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Here are some pictures of our poor man from the episode TWAH. Best wishes everyone!

Vincent at the Naples Film Festival

I recently discovered some new pictures of Vincent D'Onofrio thanks to thereel (@reelblog) on Twitter and I thought I'd share them with you.

Before I begin, however, I'd just like to say I'm going to try this whole blog thing and see how it works out. I hope to do an update once a week and, yes, it will pretty much be all about Vincent D'Onofrio. Please follow my blog and give it a chance... You can always unfollow if it's that bad. =)  Thanks for reading.

Now to the pictures:

Vincent D'Onofrio at the Naples Film Festival (supposedly this is day 2 into the festival)

I absolutely love this picture. It's too adorable! I keep staring at his wedding ring, maybe I'm a masochist, but doesn't it look loose to you? Hmm, Vincent, have you been on a diet?

 Another yummy photo. I like this shot, too.

Hmm, size 13's anyone?

 Big hands, too!

 *Sighs* Too perfect for words.

 I love the way he's leaning back in this photo - I just wish it was me he was leaning back on. Oh, please, like you weren't thinking the same thing!

Have an itch? I can help! And, gosh, look at that smile! It makes me want to melt...and those curls!

 I need to do some research, but does anyone know who this guy is? There are a lot of photo's of him and Vincent talking.

Ah, one of the many expressions of Vincent.

 Is it weird if I say I love his pearly white teeth? Hmm...

And lastly, a full-body shot (or almost full).

All photo's copyright WILKINSON 2010. There are many more photo's, but I had to narrow it down, so I chose a few of my favorite.
