Album of the week: Week 2

I've been working on a project for one of my classes. One of the final "deliverables" for the class is a CD boxed set (featuring two CD jacket designs, CD labels, and a container). Our teacher assigned us the bands. By luck, I drew Nirvana. I've been listening to Nirvana since I was in about sixth grade, so this was a great chance to put together a strong concept. I chose to design the Nirvana "Heart-Shaped box set." During the entire design process, I've been listening to a lot of Nirvana for inspirado. Without a doubt, Nirvana's Nevermind is the album of the week. There's been enough said about this one, so I'm not even going to kick that dead horse. Just listen to it. If you grew up with the album, you know. Here's a gander at some of the pics of my album design. Enjoy.

Tso What?

I'm thinking about getting a kitten. Not just any kitten. I want a Siamese. an Applehead Siamese (the ones with the round head, not one those wedge-headed ones). I did some research on Siamese and they really intelligent. Apparently they're a lot like dogs. Some even fetch. Supposing I go through with this plan, I'll have a little fuzzball running around the pad. What would be the name of such a terror, you aks? General Tso. I did some reading on this guy too. Apparently he was a real sunofabitch. But, he was a brilliant military strategist, to say the least. I think this would be quite fitting for a wee little ball of mischief (plus General Tso's Chicken is one of my Chinese takeout staples).

SOD is Five to One by the Doors.

This is the intro song the marching band plays on David Chappelle's Block Party.

Taking a break

So I took one of those semi-retarded quizzes. I'm not gonna lie, it was kinda fun. Maybe I should take a test to see my similarities with Hannah Montana. Jeez, what have I become?
Your Movie Buff Quotient: 88%

You are a movie buff of the most obsessive variety. If a movie exists, chances are that you've seen it.
You're an expert on movie facts and trivia. It's hard to stump you with a question about film.

SOD is Nancy Boy by Placebo.

Album of the Week

If you're easily offended by salty language, or your girlfriend, or your wife, or even your cat is... This album is not for you.

If you like Miami Bass, 808s, tickin' hi-hats, and good party beats. This album is for you.

The Album of the week is Bangers and Cash. Brought to you by Spank Rock and Benny Blaco. Bangers is a straight-up homage to 2 Live Crew. While it does combine the Baltimore Club style and Miami Bass, it's more of the latter than the former. And it's funny. It's all about decadence and, well, bootay. Is Bangers misogynistic? Probably. But it's all in good fun.

Just put it on, and do the cabbage patch.
