Secret Messages in an album ABOUT secret messages?

Post by Bnielsen » Thu May 19, 2005 11:12 am

Pretentious, oh YES!


lol... steve/fred/whomever, I did my best attempt to translate the 'message' on the back of the lyrics book. Did he make a typo, of am I still having trouble figuring out the letters that are caps or not.
I know sam would have this done in a split second, but I was working very hard for about 20 minutes on this!

I remeber trying to figure out some of that, with all that weird "perelandra vortex" and "allusion" and stuff... i asked steve, and he said fred did it, i asked fred, and he said he had totally forgotten... So it probably was just a typo. I'm guessing they didn't count on dorks like us trying to decode it.

You'd think they'd have known better... ;)

w00t! THANKS STEVE!!!! =)

And what REALLY cooked my noodle was, your designer used TWO DIFFERENT FONTS!

The characters on the physical CD and on the tracklisting/insert were different.

Hehe, did I just out-geek sam to a certain degree? Or did I just lower my lame quotient to -7? :roll:

I think I did most of the design elements on that album - outside of the actual cover art. So, those were my font choices. It may have been Romulan - I can't recall.
