Ditto. Though sometimes I've wondered who those losers are who jump into the background of a live news broadcast when they're trying to do a remote.
2002-12-11 03:51:15 PM  
Like those idiots that wave signs outside the window behind Good Morning America or whatever?

Yeah, I wonder, too.

They showed video of a blonde jogging on the weather channel the other day, I wondered where to get her phone number.

No, and I don't care, especially those who jump into the foreground of my photos. Those farkheads are the reason I learned to Photoshop. Here's an example of a pic taken of the front of Morimoto's restaurant in Philly with an asshat who jumped in (I didn't seem him when I took the photo):

Here he is as the magic of Photoshop melts asshat away:

And here is the final picture with no asshat:

There will be no asshats in my photos.

The losers in the backgrounds of my photos are usually relatives. *sigh*
2002-12-11 04:45:45 PM  
Most of those pictures had additional asshats in them because the picture itself sucked. Those people need to learn to center a photo.
2002-12-11 05:04:10 PM  
sort of related-
I found a camera in a Vegas hotel lobby once. I took a few pictures with it of my girlfriends and I before I returned it to the front desk lost and found.
My only hope is that the owner was male, a lesbian or a woman with a good sense of humor.
2002-12-11 06:12:32 PM  
Femme: I'm sure a man who had the photos developed and went to show his wife the wonderful sights to see in Vegas...
2002-12-11 06:14:07 PM  
I am still wondering who that guy in in black with the white thing around his neck was at my wedding ceremony.
2002-12-11 06:15:05 PM  
Not long ago, I went to see In Flames play a show in Montreal. Afterward, we met the guys from the band and had the chance to capture the moment. Sadly, someone else was interested too.

In Flames? wtf? I sure am sorry to hear that your picture was ruined by a "no-talent ass-clown" band that nobody ever heard of.
2002-12-11 06:15:06 PM  
Probably ghosts. Ooooooh...
2002-12-11 06:15:19 PM  
I hate the people at hockey games who stand up and wave like jackasses every time the camera pans down to one end of the ice or the other. If you are one of these jackoffs, please stop. We all farking saw you the first hundred times you did it in the first period. You can stop now. I can only imagine how annoying it is for the poor saps sitting behind you.
2002-12-11 06:15:56 PM  
That's actually pretty funny. Good stuff here.
2002-12-11 06:16:57 PM  

I wish that I could be the loser behind her in this photo..

Who else thinks we should turnthis into a

i'm done.
2002-12-11 06:18:18 PM  
Step 1. Crop tool.

Step 2. Shut up.
2002-12-11 06:18:47 PM  
AS demonstrated, this is good raw mat'l for a photoshop - well, maybe one or 2 of them.

Andonbray: I hate that, too. It's so funny when the camera is at say, Ford Field. and the Lions fans are bored to tears. About 4 seconds later, they see the camera is on them, and they go wild. Only New Yorkers and the LA crowd know when they're on camera.
2002-12-11 06:19:13 PM  
wow go figure, you take a picture at a club filed with people and OTHER people end up in your pics. Those people who took the pics are stupid, and should be treated as such.
2002-12-11 06:19:31 PM  
I think I might have your pictures! My cousin borrowed my camera to go to Vegas a few years ago. He said the strap broke and he'd lost it in the hotel. He had to buy one and told me he did't take any pic. When I developed I found four pics, one was nude woman in the mirror sort of thing! That you?
2002-12-11 06:20:40 PM  
freks- at NyNy?
2002-12-11 06:21:32 PM  
random people in pictures are amazing. these idiots that read a played out magazine should shut up and treasure the accidental masterpieces they now own.

peace out

fatty mcgoo and the guys that aren't Slash

i think it's pretty close

I subscribe to FHM. Why? I don't know.

Is this guy's head really small or what??

2002-12-11 06:24:02 PM  
I have heard of In Flames...
2002-12-11 06:24:21 PM  
All I saw was Brooke Burke's blue bikini. Wow.
2002-12-11 06:24:29 PM  
Doesn't ring a bell. I think he said the show was, ew, that guy from the Partridge Family.
2002-12-11 06:24:37 PM  
The guy in the middle, that is...
2002-12-11 06:25:05 PM  
Jeezus fark, lighten up will ya? Having them horn in on your photos is probably the only way someone will take these asshats pic!
2002-12-11 06:26:57 PM  
I'd like to find the asshat at microsoft who made IE6 and beat him until he tells me how to fix all the little that I get all the farkin' time!

It's driving me crazy... and bugger off if you're going to tell me to use Moz... I gots it already.
2002-12-11 06:36:48 PM  
I'm talking about those little red X's from images that don't load... but they are there...
2002-12-11 06:41:00 PM  
Hey that Bud guy is also claymation!

2002-12-11 06:41:23 PM  
I subscribe to FHM. Why? I don't know.

Probably the same reason most guys do: too scared to buy porn. But hey, I can't blame you: the first time I tried to buy a Penthouse, I had to deal with a female clerk. I burst out in laughter. To make things worse, it was at a 7-11, I was 18, had my 16 year old cousin with me, and it was about 1:00 in the morning.

It was also the last time I tried anything so foolish as buying porn.
2002-12-11 06:41:27 PM  
grah.. it phrase is not "I would hit her" .. the correct grammar is "I would hit it WITH her". I mean c'mon, when you're talking about having obscene sexual relations with someone.. at least use the proper english!
2002-12-11 06:42:05 PM  
test came back... i got crabs.
2002-12-11 06:43:24 PM  
funny.. i usually take pictures of random people hoping some one i know is in the background...
2002-12-11 06:46:08 PM  
The images are usually centered. They just crop them for the little preview pics. When you hit the "enlarge" they are the size of a normal photo and are mostly centered.
2002-12-11 06:46:34 PM  
Those of you complaining about off-center photos, I'm sure they cropped them that way.
2002-12-11 06:50:27 PM  
I have the same problem. Lemme know what you find out!
2002-12-11 06:56:23 PM  
This reminds me of a funny experience I had while shopping. I was at Barnes and Noble/Starbucks when a group of big-ass Mexican guys and their girlfriends asked me to take a picture of them using their digital camera. Of course I said it was no problem. I snapped a shot of them, and the flash went off. I told them to wait for one more when this little crazy looking black dude dressed like MC Hammer (no sh*t) that had been sitting behind them turned around yelling some shiat about me taking his picture. I swear he said something like "Ain't NOBODY takin' my god DAMN picture...I'm a THUG, man!" I calmly explained that I wasn't taking a shot of him, but of these people he was sitting by. But then I started laughing at him. He freaked out, and got all up in my face like he was going to fight me or something. The nasty-ass crack-ho biatch he was sitting with started yelling "Fu*kin' kick that muthafu*ka's ASS, Darnell!" He's screaming at me, saying "You dumb spic muthafu*ka, I'm gonna KILL YOU!", the Mexican dudes are laughing at the whole thing, and I'm getting ready to throw down, when I try to hand the Mexican dude his camera and BAM! The black dude took it out of my hands and slammed the goddamn thing on the ground by its straps. Pieces of camera go flying in all directions, and MC Hammer says, "How ya like me n..." just as all three of these big ass cholos starts wailing on him. He's screamin' "Help! Help!" The cholos are kicking him to death, and his nasty crackhead woman is screaming "Dey killin' him! Someone please! He a diabetic! Please don't kill him! He a DIABETIC!!!"

And I'm clownin'!!!

After it was over, dude was crawling in a pool of his own blood, asking if anyone could see where his Gargoyles fell.
2002-12-11 07:03:31 PM  
Hey! Who's that guy?

[image from too old to be available]
2002-12-11 07:03:44 PM  
Arrgh, I hate these knob-gobblers. You want real fun? Try working for a tv station and trying to get footage of people walking on the street acting normal.

I found that the best approach was to set up the shot on a tripod, turn off the red tally light, and start recording. Then I'd flip open a panel on the side and act like I was tweaking or adjusting something - anything, just not looking through the viewfinder.

But when it comes to live reports, you guys should see what we see back at the station. It's not uncommon for a reporter to intro his story, then when they go to the tape, the photographer or reporter turn around and deal with the assheads.

During a shot from an outdoor festival, a particularly drunk fellow decided that just as we went live would be a good time to stumble up behind the reporter and play with her hair. She intros the package, we roll the tape, and in the preview monitor we see the photographer (former Marine) blitz in and deal with the guy in a less-than-delicate manner. By the time we go back to the reporter, she's a little flustered because she just had a drunk guy introduced to the asphalt two feet behind her feet.

In the end, the photographer did get a talking to from the management - but only because he left his very-expensive camera unattended.
2002-12-11 07:05:06 PM  
Hey dumbass, just because you haven't heard of a band doesn't mean they suck. Idiot.
2002-12-11 07:07:20 PM  
The really pathetic losers of this world tend to find easy ways to feel like winners. Despoiling other people's efforts is one of those ways. So is pushing into places where they are not wanted.

Such wretched people, how sad their lives must be in order for them to be compelled to delude themselves with such pyrrhic victories.

Poor stupid asswipe. Too bad no one around had another camera.
