I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

I came across this last week and was blown away by the sheer pareidol splendor. This is the bees Knees people. OK, maybe it’s not as exciting as rainbow guy but it’s worth a look.

A guy named Denis Farmer filmed the cloud formation in his backyard in the town of Grand Falls, Canada on August 1.

As you watch the video, keep your eyes peeled on the clouds coming in from the right. No duh, right? Hey! You’d be surprised at the number of people who email me and say: “Yea Dude, I was looking at the bottom left corner and didn’t see nothin!”. OK, I’m lying, nobody is that stupid. Notice how I added the “Dude” and “nothin” to perpetuate realism?

About now you’ve likely jumped over my inane banter but if you are one of the lucky ones who enjoy my hilarious sense of humor and are actually reading this, you might win a prize! Probably not but if you think you won, send a self addressed, stamped envelope to Javier, C/O Ghosttheroy, Hollywood, CA.

Wow, I’m really getting off course here. OK, lets get back to the cloud video. Did I tell you that this thing is awesome possum? (;) V).

Here it is:

To tell you the truth, I don’t know if this is real or just some CGI fluff. Get it? fluff? LOLOL! OK, the video is about a cloud and clouds are flu…Yea! You got it!

Anyway, enough with the funny banter for a moment. Is it just me or are you guys getting tired of having to figure out if something is real or not? It’s bad enough that we have to deal with computer generated UFOs, cryptos and paranormal stuff but it seems shysters are manipulating everything these days. I’m in no way saying this cloud face is CGI but should we even have to wonder? Every once in a while I see drawbacks to technology. Actually, I can’t blame the technology as it’s all in what people do with it.

So, enjoy the video for what it is and don’t think too hard about it. You might pop a gear and then who will be available to make a fool of themselves after drinking 10 or 12 beers tonight?

I check into this quite a bit and although there is a resemblance to a face made from areogel I am of the opinion that Denis is on the up and up with this video.

  • Extractionism is first, the art and practice of Recognizing Resemblances. A vague Resemblance is a Similar and a strong Resemblance is a Replica. Most Recognitions are followed by an aquisition process known as Extraction and Utilization. Secondly, it is about studying other creatives who have come across Resemblances and the terminology they have created to describe their endeavors such as Scribblism, Tasseography, and Biomimicry to name a few. The Old Man in the Peanut is a resident of this world of replicas and is a master Extractionist! Kudos to Denis Laforge, of Grand Falls, N.B. -most likely Extractionist of the Year.

    Sorry, I’m not French. I’ll ask Denis what he says and report back.
    Grand Falls / Grand-Sault – a completely bilingual town where you ask someone a question in French and they answer you in English, and vise versa.

  • grand-sault,

    Can you ask denis if he wouldn’t mind commenting and telling us how he came about doing this video. You really have to be in the right place at the right time.
