MY ENEMY NOW HAS A FACE!!! So anyways, some girl I liked from a couple years past finally posted up a pic of her and her boyfriend on her MySpace profile. WOOHOO!! So I now have a face to go with my rage, hatred and anger (rage and anger are the same thing, no? Whatever) from the past, um, 5 years...

And I thought I screwed myself over by checking out that girl's profile once again (she's on my buddy list, by the way)...considering I've been trying NOT to visit her page for the past two months (and failed twice during the attempt. This counts as the second time, haha). I know, I know— Why did I add her in the first place? I have no idea. Her name and face are pretty much POISON in my thoughts now (cue in that old school song by Bel Biv Devoe), I'm sorry to say...not to sound overdramatic or anything... Ya think seeing that bastard's face (I'm talking about her BF) will bring closure—and more rage—to me? Hmm... We'll see. For those of you who read my blogs since I started them in October 2000, you should know who I'm talking about. I constantly referred to her as "Denise".


One more thing: I don't know the meaning of the term "having issues"...


And I'm still pissed at them for beating the Angels, but whatever:

The White Sox sweep the Houston Astros for first World Series title in 88 years

Go Sox.

First and foremost, today marks the 5-year anniversary of this Blogspot!


Since Halloween is a week away, I just felt like sharing some supposedly-haunting pictures that were taken in Thailand around the time of last December’s Asian tsunami disaster. My sister was e-mailed these pics, and she in turn showed them to me...and while they’re pretty spooky (at least, err, three of them), a few of these pics can be described as textbook Photoshopped images. Whether or not all of them are remains to be seen. I’ll leave it up to you to decide for yourself. With the exception of adding auto contrast and re-sizing the pics for clarity, I did NOT in any other manner alter these images. And my apologies to those who feel like I'm trivializing that catastrophe with these photos. If any or all of these pics are fake, blame those who got the sick idea of using that disaster to come up with these hoaxes.

This monk is praying over the body of a tsunami victim, and that wavy beam of light in front of him is supposedly that of the spirit leaving the room.  Either Industrial Light & Magic had a hand in this photo (I'm not being serious), or some supernatural brouhaha is indeed taking place in this photo.  I remember seeing these wavy beams of light in the two Ghostbusters films.  Anyways...

Faces in the fire... Is this a case of people seeing what they want to see?  What an opportune time that the flames would form faces right when this person was taking a picture.  Actually, the one all the way to the right looks pretty, um, authentic.  I'll admit that.

Mist forming on the camera lens?  Notice that there aren’t any water drops obstructing the view of the wrapped bodies on the ground.  Could these orbs be spirits who are leaving from this tragic scene?  My sister thinks so, but I’m obviously skeptical.  Err, who wouldn't be?

More of those misty bubbly things... Being that this photo is taken near water, I think this one can be logically explained.  These people sure are superstitious about those orbs...or clever in that they're testing to see just how far people are willing to believe that someone out of the normal is occurring in these pics.

Wow, that spirit even has the blank, comic book superhero eyes going... If this one’s a hoax, nice cut and paste job!  And in case you're wondering, you have to reduce the opaque level on Photoshop so the guy in the middle will become transparent in the image.  But that’s only if this pic is a hoax.

And in case you're wondering, you have to reduce the opacity level through Photoshop so the guy in the middle will become transparent in the image. But that’s only if this pic is a hoax.

EDIT: Upon closer inspection, it seems like someone copied the head of the guy to the left, moved it to the middle of the photo, and then made it transparent to make it look like a ghost. That, and the eyes were altered to give them that blank look. Oh, and Photoshop's film grain option was used to make the image look more convincing. BOOOO!

This 'paranormal' event is taking place on the famous bridge over the River Kwai.  My sister should know... She went to Thailand for a film shoot 2 years ago and visited this historic site.  More spirits in the form of those wavy light beams.  In case you’re wondering, River Kwai was the site of an Allied attempt to blow up the bridge in World War II, despite the fact British soldiers were building it for their Japanese captors.  Haven’t you seen the 1957 movie with Sir Alec Guinness in it?  I didn’t.

This is a Photoshopped pic assuming someone e-mailed this image to this dude’s cell phone.  If not, then how convenient that the ghost is smiling for the camera too!  Verizon LG should follow Samsung’s lead... They’d both be making billions if they could build camera phones that can photograph dead people!  Anyways, this photo actually appeared in a Thai newspaper.

All you need to do with this pic is conduct a nice cut-and-paste job, reduce the opacity level like in the fourth image above, and blur the “ghost” so he’ll appear the way he does in this image.  Other than that, this pic is SCARY!!!  ‘Cause those guys sure are posing pretty damn close to each other for this photo...  Get a room!

Back in the day... The infamous 9/11 hoax pic.  Overlooking the fact the lighting on the plane doesn't mix with the actual lighting in the photo, notice how well it was cut and paste into this picture.  Don't know 'bout the Pot Baby, though.  Whoever added that is a disgrace to Photoshop pranksters everywhere.  Haha.

One more for the road... The Coronado Hotel, which is one of the most well-known haunted sites here in this country. I took this picture when a few of my friends and I hung out in San Diego on Saturday.

Albert Pujols, right, and the Cardinals remain alive in the NLCS.

CARDINALS: 5, ASTROS: 4... I'd laugh at Houston pitcher Brad Lidge for choking at the last minute, but at least his team is still playing. We'll see if they win tomorrow or pull a 2004 Yankees and lose the next two games to St. Louis (though in case you've already forgotten, New York won the first three games in last year's ALCS and lost the next four to the Red Sox. That's EVEN worse). Damn the Angels! And Jose Contreras... And Doug Eddings... Definitely Doug Eddings.

Okay, this entry oughta offset the nerd posts of the past week or so. And don't forget to buy the Batman Begins DVD today!

DVD cover for Batman Begins.

It was either plugging in another shameless advertisement about a film in my journal entry or posting a long-ass blog about how much I hate MySpace and Friendster.com (speaking of which, I think I'll log into them after I finish typing this. NOT! And I'm well aware that I posted a link to my MySpace profile in my Favorites section above), so I chose making the shameless plug instead. Don't forget to pick up the Batman Begins DVD when it gets released in stores next Tuesday. The film made over $205 million in the domestic box office so far, so there has to be a sequel (as long as it's still directed by Chris Nolan, that is). Warner Bros made Scooby Doo 2, for cryin' out loud. Of course— it went straight to DVD.

PARMAN'S PAGE HAS MOVED... To a new server, that is! I'm still on Crosswinds.net, but I signed up for a different account where I get more storage space and a lot more bandwidth. So now my page won't become unavailable right when you're about to find those hidden links I have on making pipe-bombs and better porno videos. JUST KIDDING! That joke may bite me in the ass in the future. Oh well. But seriously, though... You now have unlimited access to all those pics of me with import models that will no doubt ruin my chances with any gal I want to get with in the future who stumbles upon my site. I'd remove those model pics, but you know... I don't wanna. Oh, and as of today, I have 132,793 hits since I've been keeping track of all the visits to my homepage since early 2004 (and I've had this website since 2000, so God knows what my real count is, haha). Thank you, Statcounter!
