Album Cover Wallpaper


I'm not exactly sure why I decided to post these pix. I thought that Low Light listeners might get a kick out them.

These first pix are of a wall in my family room. It was ugly dark paneling that I just put up with for years. Then on a whim, I dug up what was left of my vinyl album collection and simply tacked some of them to the wall.

I know it has the decorating look of some stoner kid who lives in his parents' basement. But I don't care, they make me smile every time I look at them.

I liked how it worked so much that I then used more album covers to make a border all the way around the room.

I also did the same thing in a small bathroom right off the family room. It was tough to take a good picture in there because the room is so small. I'd need a really wide angle lens to be able to see the whole wall. I also messed around with the mirror.

These album covers really bring back a lot of memories. I like them even if it does look like some dorm room from the 70's.

Brilliant. It makes total sense to any real music fan. I can see we share a lot of the same musical past. Oh, the memories... especially the old Eno albums. Electronic music ended up being my favorite genre, some 30 years later...
