Actually, tha's Noise's avatar, which just HAPPENS to be E.C.'s rendering from his stint on "the Simpsons". Although (I Promise!) everyone on the board will get a metion somewhere within the CD Package.

Final Design approval is, ultimately, Blue Chair's, given that the entire concept of the CD was his to begin with.

More to come!!

Nicely done...

As for design approval being mine, I think we can all say this is a joint effort. I will be the one, whoever, who collects all the songs and decides on the track order.

Sulky, that's very nice work. Some great pics there depicting EC at many different stages in his career, as I'm sure the song selection will!

As much as I love music, I can't play a note and when I sing it's in such a pseudo-Costello voice that it's pitiful, so no song from me.

Bluechair and Sulky, I would still love a copy and will pay for any expenses incurred and then some!

oooohhh. pretty.


although my head wants the two circles to be in the middle of their respective rows. like the red and blue 'elvis costello' boxes are.
if we can rock together, why can't we walk together?

Asymmetry, Tokyo.

Keeps your eyes moving, and your reaction was exactly what I was going for!

Gotta agree with Tokyo. But where's the "beard years" pitcture? I kinda liked that look, hence the avatar.

P.S I've found a picture of Elvis with a really bad mullet. Do you want that, Sulky? :lol:

I definitely like! Nice job Sulk!!!
A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. Do you think when Jesus comes back he ever wants to see a fuckin' cross? It's kind of like going up to Jackie Onassis with a rifle pendant on.

Yes, I'm double-posting...

You'll find this same post in the "Tribute CD" thread, because I want as many board members involved as possible.

Okay...

At some point tomorrow (am? pm? Not sure...) wil be uploading the "Dedication Page" of the CD insert. I welcome anyone & everyone to submit a concise (smart but short) essay, in the format of your choice, to either my PM or E-mail address.

C'mon, ya'all!!

Good work on the graphics, Sulky.

BTW: Who's doing the liner notes?

Okay, folks...

Section 3, the "Inside" of the 4 page booklet (Cover, Two-Page, Dedication Page...Hard to describe the layout, maybe I'll work it up in a more "user friendly" table-frame...)

Opinions, Please!!

Oh, and the sign Publicity Photo is courtesy of our VERY OWN Gillibeanz.

You go, girl!!

(Can someone PLEASE stop Oprah from using that damned phrase?? Pretty Please??)
