While watching a Droids DVD with my girlfriend a while ago, we both agreed that Neil Young (Legendary Canadian Musician for anyone not familiar) must have been the inspiration for a character in the cartoon. I'm guessing the animator was a big fan.

I made this wee pic to compare.

What do you think? Is this Neil?

Sorry, but it doesn't look much like Neil Young to me.

I see a resemblance, but what did the character's voice sound like? That would be the real kicker.

There were a pile of other pics that fit better, this one worked for the angle I had of Nilz Yomm. The time of Droids, Neil was a lot more popular, and throughout the episode we kept mentioning to each other how he looked like Neil, but when we saw the name we figured it was too close to be coincidence.

I know who Neil Young is. LOL Been following him since he was with Buffalo Springfield. Saw him in concert when he was with CSNY.

I still think it's a superficial resemblance at best. The eyes, nose, mouth and chin are different. And Yom's face is longer.

The name Nilz Yomm does sound a lot like Neil Young too, doesn't it?

Why do you care? I put the pic together in 5 mins in Photoshop. Hardly took any time at all.

Thought it was a cool thing and wanted to share it. You've said you don't think it looks like him, fair enough, why did you come back just to toss in this insult?

It's not like I'm spending my time dropping hundreds of posts here, like yourself.

First off, it was not an insult; it was a joke which is what the LOL meant. Second, it was in response to Ree'dius.

That's fine, it's just one of those comments that isn't that funny to me. Joke or not. When people tell me I have too much time on my hands, it's just really annoying.

I don't like it when people judge how I spend my time, and as I started the thread I figured you were also talking to me... 'You guys" usually means more than one person.

Actually it was more a joke along the lines of, "Boy, am I glad that school's going to be starting soon." Which obviously doesn't pertain to you, and only pertains to me in that I'm really going to be glad when my teenager heads back to school in a couple of weeks. It's been a loooong summer. LOL

Absolutely no offense intended, and I do see (as I said) a superficial resemblance. But I see a lot of differences too. Interesting coincidence?

On the contrary, it's been a shooooort summer. Wink
