The Album Game

I've had a few laughs this week with a design meme from 4chan: The Album Game.

1. Go to Wikipedia and click "Random Article" in the left sidebar. That is your artist name.

2. Go to Wikiquote and click "Random Page" in the left sidebar. The last 3 to 5 words of the article are your album title.

3. Go to flickr's last 7 days page. The 5th image on the page is your album art image.

4. Add your artist name and album title to the image in Photoshop.

5. Taunt your favourite hipster with music they've never heard of.

Here's some of mine... feel free to show me yours.

the garden of eatin'

Some of you faithful Rocketeers have witnessed the decade-long evolution of the Skygarden, my little patch of green that overlooks a much bigger patch of green. Well, I've added several more containers and tried my hand at some vegetable gardening this summer. Go ahead and click to make 'em bigger...

overlooking Mount Pleasant

nasturtiums, verbena, morning glory, somona, marigolds

cherry tomatoes and cucumbers
tomatoes on deck!

the herb garden: mesclun lettuce, tarragon, summer savory, dill, rosemary, basil, cilantro, thyme, mint, and parsley

garden panoramarama

A million thanks to the talented landscapers and gardeners who create a luscious paradise every summer around my building. Here are some panoramic shots I took after this morning's rain.
