Autumn in Maryland

Autumn is definitely my favorite season of the year, I was a bit hesitant about it this year because Winter, Spring, and then Summer seemed so awesome but late September and October so far have really sealed the deal. Of course now it's gotten to the point where it's starting to get "OMFG Cold" by most MD resident's standards, it's fine because we all started complaining about the cold a month ago when it was actually super nice out.

And now something that I did back in May/June and am just now getting around to:

A blogger that I know through RPG blogging, Darvin, posted this "Random Music Album Cover meme" back in May and I thought it was a very interesting idea so I did it back then, and with my typical lazy nature I didn't post it but the results amused me so much I had to save them in my e-mail somewhere. So I present to you now, the results and the instructions for the meme! I'd love to see others if you do it for yourself.

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random... Read More”
or click
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations"
or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

I think the fact that my random wikipedia page ended up being "Fecal Fat Test" was amazing, and knew that I had to post this sooner or later. The absolutely stunning photo, which I unfortunately had to Photoshop the word "Fecal" onto was found randomly on Flickr and belongs entirely to Flickr user jennyBunz, I hope she doesn't mind because that photo would actually makes a really kickass album cover!

Other news: updated my slow as hell progress through Wheel of Time book 4, from 31% to 37% complete. The group just got into the Aeil Wastes so now I'll probably pick up the speed and hopefully be finished the book before the end of the year. Yes, again, I read incredibly and horrifyingly slow. I know this.

Also a week ago I posted a quick photoshop sketch I did on Parallax Perspectives, and I hope to be doing at least one of those a week as I start picking up more freelance art jobs that require me to keep in practice.
