I'm an asshole

"@QueenWillRock still waiting for GVH 3 [Greatest Video Hits] and Rocks vol. 2. Been waiting 10 years and 16 years, respectively. Starting to get impatient."

From Wikipedia: "Queen Rocks is a compilation album by the English rock band Queen, released in 1997." and "Greatest Video Hits 2 is the second DVD of music videos from the English band, Queen. It was released in November 2003, and included video hits of the band between 1981 to 1989."

I see two scenarios. 1. A goon squad will muscle its way into my apartment and destroy my Queen collection, or 2. My obnoxiousness lights a fire under Queen Productions, Ltd's collective ass. And then they send a goon squad to muscle its way into my apartment and destroy my Queen collection.


Please don't break my stuff!

Let me have my moment

The Queen Fan Club retweeted a picture I posted of Freddie in Mountain Studios. I feel way more proud of myself than is reasonably called for!

Some really cool art

I love when people ask me to promote their stuff on my blog. It makes me feel legit!

So Nick Palmer (hi, Nick!) emailed me with a press release and some really kickass work he's been doing. If I didn't like it, I wouldn't post it, but I think it's really clever! Certainly more interesting and creative than most of the official cover art these days! In case you don't know what I'm talking about, the most egregious offender:

What kind of a lazy-ass... You know what? No. I'm not getting into that here. On with the good stuff!

Each song is represented by its audio signature, or waveform, which is wrapped in a circle around the title. This results in a composition reminiscent of a vinyl record.

A small amount of ‘silence’ is inserted at the start and end of the waveform and positioned where the needle would fall on a record player. This silence also serves to draw the eye from the title in the centre to the lyrics at the bottom right.

For many people these songs defined a moment in time, a special part of their lives that will always be evoked by the music. Tuneloop captures that feeling and expresses it with colours based on the original single or album artwork. - Nick
