Top 5 Studio Recordings Album Cover (Now Revised!) and Other Oddities

May 2, 2009

What a long post title. Hehe! So! Many of you guys weren’t too happy with this week’s studio recordings album art for the top 5. Due to popular demand, I’ve created a new album art using the group picture as requested! Thanks for the suggestions and feedback, it only makes the blog better! I’ll always be happy to oblige to any suggestions that are practical.

Anyway, here it is! I have to agree, the group photo does look better as a whole. Although I still hate that picture, it does look better as the album cover. Nice eyes, guys.

top 05.2

So, copy, paste, and change that album art in your music player! Unless of course, you prefer the previous one! (Anyone? Hehe.)

Other than that, I’d like to ask you guys a favour! Weeks just fly by, don’t they? Currently, we have nine album arts from all the weeks since the top 13. So I’d like you guys to VOTE for your favourite album cover! That way, I can create future album arts that are based on/similar to the most popular cover. The poll has multiple choices, by the way.

In case you need references, here are the album arts from all the weeks! Click on them to enlarge, they’ll link you to the original size. [450x450]

Oh yeah, there are also some peeps saying that some of the tracks uploaded are missing/invalid/slow/broken. In fact, they are perfectly fine. What you have there  is probably a lag from the hosting website. It happens when you download too many tracks at once/keep visiting the hosting site/open too many tabs of the hosting site at once. Server problems will occur and you’ll find that you can’t download the file or even access the page. So what you can do is, one, try refreshing the page. Or two, leave the site for a few minutes, then check back the site again to download the file. I hope that’s cleared up! It’s a common niche, so don’t worry. It certainly doesn’t mean that I’m biased towards some of the contestants! Hehe.

Any more suggestions are most welcome! VOTE! Please leave comments!

-MDOC-’s Wordle!

February 22, 2009

Wordle has became somewhat of an overnight sensation during the past  few months. It’s basically a creative website that puts together a jumble of words from your blog, your website or any rubbish that you type in and creates them into a piece of art. It’s really colourful and fun.

Here’s the Wordle for - MDOC - !

Bigger version here. Glad Wordle decided to feature Cook in the spotlight. :)

David Cook – “Light On” Lyrics

September 22, 2008

How cruel cheeky of David Cook to release the lyrics of his single before we’ve even heard it yet. Cook’s new single, which debuts this week (YIKES!) is called “Light On”. The lyrics are now posted on his official site.  I love the lyrics, it’s so warm and heartfelt, the nice feeling you get when you reach home. Can’t wait to hear the real thing! Cook’s single will be posted here as soon as it debuts. Meanwhile, enjoy the lyrics while playing any song in your head to match the lyrics!

Verse 1

Never really said too much
Afraid it wouldn’t be enough
Just try to keep my spirits up
When there’s no point in grieving
Doesn’t matter anyway
Words could never make me stay
Words will never take my place
When you know I’m leaving

Chorus

  • First Place (3 appearances):     Rat & Rabbit
  • Second Place (2 appearances):     Tiger, Snake, Horse & Monkey
  • Third Place (1 appearance):     Ox, Dragon, Sheep, Dog & Pig

We have a two way tie for first place. XD Hehe!

Special shoutout to Selvie for helping me to save these images!!

A horse is playing football (or soccer, if you’re using that) with a snake. Wrong direction, Mr. Horse! Mr. Snake looks like he could save the goal. The horse’s arched body doesn’t really look like a “G” though.

Tiger playing badminton? Looks like a nudge towards Malaysia since Malaysia’s national animal is the Malaya tiger. Best of luck to Lee Chong Wei for the men’s single title!
