Evil Eye Curse

The Evil Eye is a curse given at a glance. It is the belief that with a look someone
can transmit a curse either willingly or unwillingly to a person, animal, place or thing.
Once cursed you may suffer numerous illnesses, general unluckiness or even death!
A curse on a place or thing, be it a certain length of road or a building or even a car
can also cause illness, despair, unluckiness or death.
     So how do you get rid of the Evil Eye curse?
There are numerous methods of removal. The best way is to have the person who
cursed you remove it. But if that is impossible then pray. Seriously prayer is the next
best removal method. There are also many different methods and prayers you can
find on the internet. Just google them. You can also seek out a minister, priest,
holy man, shaman or witch doctor.
     You might wonder can you prevent getting cursed in the first place? Yes! The
use of amulets has long been used in warding off evil.. There are several different
amulets from pink coral bracelets to an amulet called the evil eye.

     The Evil Eye is a curse given at a glance. So... who is looking at you?

Water Man, Alien Creatures in Thailand? Or Art?

Six bizarre Ewok-like creatures seen chilling near a cave off the Krabi coast in a video that went viral over the weekend are, sadly, not a new anthropological discovery. Turns out it was all just a bit of performance art for the Thailand Biennale, a national art festival.


The clip, captured by American tourist Jemayel Khawaja on Friday, shows the furry creatures sitting or wading around in the water to the sounds of Thai clarinet as perplexed foreigners on kayaks and a tour boat watch on.

“So we were kayaking around Railay Bay in Thailand, turned a corner towards a cave, and found ourselves confronted with perhaps the most surreal and bizarre situation I’ve ever experienced — Ewok-like troll creatures engaged in some cacophonic ritual in the water. It went on for like 30 minutes! WTF is going on here?” Khawaja wrote.

Well, as pointed out by a commenter, one of the creatures may actually have been playing the clarinet.

While most (including us) were simply confused by the performance, plenty of commenters were positive in their assessment.

“Whatever it is, I like it,” one wrote.

“I’m pretty inspired,” another said.

So what was it exactly? According to one Facebook commenter, the performance was the brainchild of Norwegian artist Tori Wrånes, who’s known for creating “rituals and drealike constellations,” according to her website.

“Wrånes has been occupied with developing her own Troll-technique; an improvised, non-verbal, language based on rhythm and temperament,” the profile says.

They were right.

A quick look at Thailand Biennale’s Facebook page confirmed that an installation featuring the imaginary Krabi-born creatures was set to debut on Friday.

“Struck by the dramatic landscape of Phra Nang Cave and beach during her site visit, [the installation] imagines the presence of indigenous ‘Krabi creatures’ to interpose in daily life that occurs within this tourist destination,” the description reads. Alrighty then!

If you want to check out our new friendly, furry friends for yourself, good news. They will be appearing daily at the Phra Nang Cave throughout the entire four-month biennale, until Feb. 28. The clarinet concert, however, was apparently a one time thing.
