My Solo Album (Not Really But Even So)
Posted on February 16, 2015 Posted by John Scalzi 12 Comments
So, I posted this picture of myself with ridiculously large, Bono-like sunglasses on Twitter and noted that if I ever decided to make a solo album called The Life and Times of a Pretentious Wanker, it would be the cover photo. And, well. A fellow with the Twitter handle of “Johnny Magnum” decided to take me at my word and added a few graphic elements to the picture. The resulting “album cover” is, in a word, perfect. It almost makes me wish I had an album of music to go with it. Maybe after the novel is done.
In the meantime, this is a fine time to remind people that I do actually have an entire album’s worth of electronic music, and it’s right here. It already has a title, alas.
Alas, the lead singer puts on airs and goes solo, leaving behind a vast pit of musical uncertainty.
Almost looks like something from the FakeAlbumCovers subreddit.
thank you John, i like the song called “well imagine that”…..nice……pretentious wanker….i know that club… :)
Kickstarter … bet you make more than enough to professionally produce an album.
Of course you would then have to make the album which would be work.
When you put your band together can you get Geoff from Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show to play the bones or something? Dude needs a gig now and I think he’d fit right in.
Reblogged this on oshriradhekrishnabole.
Forget the music, I bet the liner notes are awesome!
You should use it as the cover to your next Whatever collection volume!
I am majorly impressed with the cover. It’s perfection
Sheesh! Novel? You’ve been there and done that! On to the music already! Spice things up a little.😃
