    My confession of obsession with Eric James Niemi.

    I want to apologize to Eric.

    I met Eric James Niemi in 1997 at video production class at Riverside
    Community College in Riverside California. We became close friends
    fast and I was always impressed with how smart he was and how
    everybody liked him. He went on to make a documentary on surfing that
    aired on television. I thought he was going to give me a big position
    in the filmmaking process and was alittle disappointed when all he
    asked me to do was some second unit work.

    I was a little upset and this is when my obsession really started...
    We would always surf together but I felt he was pulling away from me
    and I became jealous of all the other people he was hanging around
    with. He would always return my phone calls but he became more distant
    when he took film classes at Fullerton.

    Then came his screenplay stuff with one of his scripts and then came
    other stuff and he fell into a bunch of other stuff too. I was very
    jealous of him and still am. I was so jealous that I took up an online
    personality and became him. Not really being him but I started posting
    to usenet in 1997 and haven't stopped since.

    I have posted under countless identities all swirling around Eric.
    Trying to hype Eric, trying to be Eric trying to become people who
    know Eric closer than I do now and even trying to hurt Eric. It has
    become a obsession that I am learning to deal with. I do apologize.

    I tried to get him UNDER me, so to speak, and conned him into shooting
    CRAZY MARY for me.

    I wanted to direct something and I thought by having Eric shoot it I
    would somehow become Eric.

    The sad thing is I will probably lose him forever as a friend as he
    found out recently that I was posting on the newsgroups about him and
    pretending to be him. A lot of people think the internet is crap and
    don't believe everyhting on it. I hope Eric takes that into

    We started a film group in Southern California. Kinda like a
    screenwriting group but for video and film and Eric kept coming up
    with these cool ideas and even had a web site up for us members on
    Digital 8 stuff. I was jealous and started hyping it on the internet.
    I thought by doing that I was making it my own. I recently actually
    set up a web site with a bunch of pictures of Eric and stuff but I
    realized that I had gone to far and now I am trying to stop.

    I also have done a lot of other things I am not proud. The funny thing
    is I really think I can think like Eric. I think what I feel Eric is
    feeling and what Eric is feeling I am feeling too.

    I have had AOL since the mid 90's and I was always getting screennames
    like ericniemi ericjamesniemi and ejn111. I really had/have a problem.
    It was very easy for me to become a stalker on the internet and it was
    very easy for me to do a lot of things as I have computer skillz.

    Eric if you ever visit the newsgroups and see this I hope it makes up
    for all the hurt and defamation I may have o rmay not have brought to
    your name.

    Please forgive me Eric I am sorry.

    Your friend

    Why don't you email this to him instead of posting it here.

    Why don't you try using commas.

    Someone needs to lock up that EJN boy before someone hurts him.

    He wants us to click on the URL in the post.
    He can get away with it.

    Dena, it's an EJN sockpuppet. The style is very similar to the female
    sockpuppet which claimed infatuation with him.
