My Defective Ear

A 366-day pursuit in personal portraiture, presented by nige.

The challenge: to photograph, and post to this moblog, a portrait shot of myself, every single day, over the next year. Apparently, it's much harder than it sounds...

Perhaps more challenging: that i don't enjoy seeing my phizog in a photo at the best of times, and knowing that i'm probably going to annoy the hell out of the moblog community in doing this. So, sincere apologies in advance for this undertaking, but i just can't help myself. I promise to try and be creative, so you won't have to look at my mug every day.

Anyone interested in joining me? I think i'm probably going to need the company...

Jeeeez, that was quite the thumbnail to be slurping tea and waking up to, Nige. Thanks. ;D Creative as always, and a fab shot. BTW, karo syrup, a bit of cornstarch and food colouring makes the best blood.

OCD Sprocket says:

alas, all I can think of is death by chocolate

I'm hungry now, I wonder if I can go out to a restaurant and order only dessert???

nige says:

i'm sure somewhere will let you. death by chocolate...mmmmm...

i've been thinking of different ways of dying, but they are so damn time consuming to set up. thats a great blog to do on a weekly basis though. great idea! do it do it!

Ways to suicide, hmmmm...

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.

-Dorothy Parker

You've done drugs and razors. There's drowning, hanging, shooting, jumping, gas (the old stick your head in the oven biz), the acid thing sounds awful, and I'm not sure how one would go about it.

What else? Um, running into the road to be hit by a car, suicide by cop?
