Lilydale Tasmania’s Best Album

Man, have you heard the latest from Lilydale Tasmania? Go At It Anyway! is their best work yet.

Go At It Anyway!

Welcome to the Album Cover Meme…

Make your own!

The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

You then take the pic and add text to it, then post your pic.

I got it from John Harper (who got it from Vincent) and Joe took it from me and posted his before I posted mine!

I might have to do another… it’s a ton of fun.

UPDATE: I did another.  It was a ton of fun.

I bring you, the debut album from Neunkirchen Saarland, “Day Expressed in M&Ms.”

That’s twice in a row I got a band name that was just the name of a town.  I was kind of hoping that I would be able to make a dark industrial album — Neunkirchen Saarland could have been the next Einsturnze Neubauten — but the album title and the image ruled that out.  I’m thinking something  acoustic with just a shade of euro-pop.

Day Expressed In M&Ms

Comet Holmes Fading

On a rare clear night I tried taking pictures of Comet Holmes again. It is fading out of view, as Sky and Telescope notes. My digital camera was able to catch a little of the glow, on 30 second exposure — nothing was really there for the naked eye anymore. Sad to see it go.

I also took a kind of cool picture of the Pleiades and some wispy clouds, and made something desktoppable out of it.
