What's up with my EYES?

So I took this picture of myself (rather clumsily), with the intent of posting it here and then using it as my profile picture for my blogger account. But look at my eyes! Are they always that hazel? They actually look rather yellow, in a very alarming sort of way. Obviously, this won't be my profile pic, since I look like a madman, but I thought I'd share.

WOAH. I think you have abnormally heavy eyelids there? And the tone of the whole picture is pretty yellow. Get some better lighting! And some sleep!!!

If you ever make a suburban gangsta rap album, this would be the perfect cover photo.

haha, thanks guys! I do look sallow and threatening, don't I? You should see the picture for the carte orange metropass that I have. I look like every right-wing radio talk show's idea of the "homegrown terrorist."

So, you didn't try any auto-level/color correction algorithms (like those in Photoshop or GIMP or some other program. I tried a couple of them, and the color thing made a difference. The auto-level, not so much....

(sidenote: why do the verification words keep getting longer? aren't five characters enough to fool a bot?)

LMGM a dit…

Very good point, travis. Although if I had messed with the colour levels, the picture might've looked OK, in which case I wouldn't have posted this monstrosity for everyone to laugh at. I like to entertain.

(as for your sidenote, taj, yes. I can't say much about it other than a Seinfeldian "what's up with that?" Some of them are actually really difficult to decipher.)

One of these verification strings is going to turn up as a really awesome band name -- the early 21st century version of a million typing monkeys.

Actually, this one is close: "abhipsrp". Just replace "srp" with, I dunno, "porn".

BTW, "anonymous" is me, Mark. Since I've "upgraded" to beta.blogger, I can't even f*cking post comments. Yay progress.

How is it that my "wow this picture is strange" post creates the most comments? Anyway, I feel for ya, Mark. Just look at the post I left on your blog. Apparently, beta.blogger has created a chasm between us, and I can no longer enfold you in my comment-y embrace. After 5 tries, I figured out that us peasant.blogger folks can't post signed comments to beta.blogger blogs, either. So I am also an anonymous marauder on your blog now.
