return of the album covers game

his shoes are staring at me

everyday news

cat doesn't care

Tonsillitis continues to be troublesome; concourse in a dress, similarly. Lousy light conditions in the Zodiac meant my attempts to photograph this momentous occasion were largely thwarted, illness meant I had to leave before The Family Machine played. Annoying. However, The Red Stripes and Princelee were most impressive. Photos here.

Some of the photos turned out to be square, which reminded me of the Album Cover Game, something I used to do where I'd post pictures here and ask people to make up artist and title of the (fictional) album it was the cover to. Only andypop really got into it, he was typically enthusiastic ("I love this game!") so (for this or whatever reason) I decided to make my latest batch on the Flickrstream Album Cover Game pictures, so come along and help me name them if you want.

Although it seems likely that I'll end up playing it with myself.

the red stripe's drummer is a stunnah! Emily Howard couldn't hold a candle...

although, to be fair
So was I. D'you know what she said? "Stop that, do you want people to think you're a lesbian?"

Re: although, to be fair
>'she'?

Do we play this game on LJ or Flickr? Should be clear. If LJ then
(1) The Red Stripes: Transgressive Agenda
(2) Franz Millar: Nunz in Acti0on
(3) Pulp: Urbanity

if you've got a flickr identity
you can play over there: there are another three photos there, too.

I'd missed a link in the main post. Here's the full Album Cover Game Set. Come on over and name 'em all -- it's time you had a Flickr ID, right?

you're not sorry at all
I was thinking more 'ugh' of Miles's - and Ben's. With their other halves both watching, no less.

it does still hurt a bit
to be honest. And I'm getting tired really easily. Might do a half-day tomorrow.

The second photo would make a great cover for the next fanzine from cpt_buggernuts and the Punchable Nun crew.

I remembered when I was reading this week's Strange Horizons story that I'd meant to point you at their submission guidelines for art. And at the archive. May or may not be of interest.

cheers,
I like the presenetation, the fiction and the style/quality of artists, so shall definitely be working toward doing some submissions. What sort of theme do you think I should do?
