This guy took pictures of himself everyday for 8 years. After he bought his Nikon CoolPix 900 camera, his girlfriend asked if he would be using it everyday with a sarcastic inflection. Little did she know that he was about to begin the project of his life. Click the image to see the video.

I like how he goes from glasses to contacts and back to glasses. And from skinhead to longhaired hippie.

that's amazing

it looks real, if it wasnt it would nearly be even more work anyways!

but his head keeps (impressively) the same size and position within the image - maybe he had a tripod and a whatchamacallit* to hold his head in same position/place and didnt move either for eight years

* maybe we need to make up a word for that.. :)

Incidentally, they talked about the same thing in the CyberNet forums. I guess this is one of the original videos in which this one is inspired (then there's the other one of the Asian girl, which was posted before), but I preferred the real life parody and The Simpsons parody ;D

he has a FAQ here I read a bit of, some interesting

PS nice to see homer growing up Lashiec (totally off topic: is Lashiec a spanish name or a forum name? - hah just googled it:
"On the castle we are aquainted with the psycopath known as Lashiec..."  hmnmm)

We should ask app103 to shave her head and do something similar to watch her hair grow back! Could be an entertaining fundraiser idea mouser!

It's an amazing experiment. There's something very intimate about this work. Like a glimpse into a personnal diary.
