Mr Frozen Moments Speaks AGAIN

Once whilst we had a line of communication open with Mr Frozen Moment we put forth unto him a few questions before we were talked down by Mr IronFlatline who put everything in perspective for us.

Behold the following responses to our queries and better know what goes on inside the head of Mr Frozen Moments

What do you think of your many many photo contest wins?

"for me it doesn't matter, if i win one or tousand contests, because thereare no prices or something like this. and so it's only a funny amusement forme."

What would you say to those participants who think that you wins represents a flaw in the voting system rather than to your skills as a photographer?

"hmm i don't know what to say. on the one hand i know, that tastes aredifferent and one like these image and another dislike it. but on the otherhand sometimes there are what do you think?"

Do you encourage your viewers to vote for you and if so, do you think other photographers should consider doing this?

"i thing with links to the contests, you encourage your viewers to vote foryou and it's okay. everybody have the possibillity to encourage others.that's the real life, people affect others and the others affect othersagain.regards"

We here at the Photo Meme Hall of Shame love ...neene...
And always shall.
We don't know her from a hole in the ground, however
And never will.

The one thing we can say that we HAVE learned about ...neene... is that beyond being a very regular photo meme participant, she is also a very loyal Photo Meme Hall of Shame visitor. We are thinking of blocking her for her own good. She apparently loves a good shaming. Or fears it.

...neene... is funny because in casual conversation the window to her soul will suddenly fly open but if you ask her a simple direct question she will ignore it so completely you'll wonder if you even asked it and like a fool you'll ask again and then KNOW.

Without further ado, we present the Photo Meme Hall of Shame Interview of ...neene...

1. Who are you and why are you doing this to us?

2. What did you have for breakfast?

3. Do you know Kerrin?

4. What equipment do or have you used? Are there any manufacturers you'd like to praise or bad mouth here?

5. What other hobbies do you enjoy or enjoy inflicting upon others?

6. Where else can we see your photos? Do you have any side projects?

7. What is the best photo that you missed?

8. Tell us your worst habit.

9. If you weren't doing what you do now, what else WOULD you be doing? Photographer doesn't count.

10. What are you wearing?

And that, Photo Meme Hall of Shame visitors, is the one we call ...neene...

New and Newish Weekend Memes and other Such Business as to Which We Need to Tend.

Just when we get one window fixed, a stone come a-flying but at least this time we needn't fear it...yet.

Dear Memes,

Would you please consider adding to you list of memes? It's going to be a Saturday meme that will hopefully fill the void left behind by Pxite.

Sincerely, Homer Laffoone.

Dear Mr Laffoone,

Consider it added. And please make it very difficult and strict so that we may begin Shaming again.

Sincerely Back,


We would be remiss if we did not mention that Barbara/Xerraire has a very nice weekend challenge at


Note to photobloggers who do not have outstanding interview questions that they have not submitted: Return here to check out your competition. They are more interesting then you think. They are certainly more interesting then WE think.

Mr Frozen Moments Responds

This early AM we lifted our wee heads from the bare mattress of love and found that our pillows followed them. "Curious," we thought, as it normally stays put. While trying to swing it off we found our upstairs loft to be much colder than normal and it had FROZEN to our drooly and icicled faces!

During the night we had received a another note tied to a rock and tossed though our one good window, allowing in all the cold!

It read as follows:

i'm the 'mr. frozen moments' and i read your entries.
i've read many sad things about me and my blog. are there problems with myimages, why aren't you mailing me? it's really unhappy to read somethinglike this at your blog!
i can't explaine the 136 votes for me, but are you really form an opion thati'm voting for me 136 per week?? that means 19 votes per day??

i guarantee that i didn't vote for me and i didn't use a vote-robot orsomething like this!
so please adjust the entries about me!
thomas mueller

Allow me, as we press warm compresses to our frostbitten faces to dictate answers to the following inquiries from Herr Mueller.

There are no problem with your images and we aren't emailing you because we are horrific chickens. We couldn't explain the 136 votes either, so we eliminated them. Sometimes photographers can find that their photographic friends can vote for them repeatedly, lifting them into the ranks of winner in contest after contest and clearly, this little vote at the Photo Meme Hall of Shame has proven to be another example of where perhaps you received more votes than you really should have. The difference is that we closely monitored and scaled the scores to correct for the issue.

Consider the entries about you to be adjusted by your defense here. We also hope that you and other who find themselves at the end of some practical jokers vote pumping will bring it to light as you have.


Your noisy upstairs neighbors,

The Right Honourable Memes, Monitor and Shame, Esq (et, al)
