Best album titles
February 14, 2008 09:35PM
Hi ppl

I think some time ago there was a topic 'best songtitles ever' or something like that...
Well I was listening to Zappa's 'Shut up 'n play yer guitar' and I thought to myself: that's a cool album title.
So I'd like to know what you think are the best album titles you know of winking smiley

I must admit I have an affinity for album titles that consist solely of a NAME, especially Steve McQueen (by Prefab Sprout, 1985), that is one hell of an album title. I don't particularly like the album, though, but the title is ultracool - like the man himself obviously.

Yo La Tengo: I'm Not Afraid of You and I will Beat Your Ass

How do I post a photo?

one possibility:

right click on a photo you find in the internet. copy its adress.
then put this adress between these tags: [img]picture's adress[/img]

in the case of my picture above it'll look almost like this:

[img]http://naramig.files.wordpress.com/2007/07/led_zeppelin-iv.jpg[img]

but at the end you gotta write [/img] instead of [img]. i'm putting it wrong here so you can see the actual command line.

second possibility:
some pictures you can't copy. for hosting issues. dunno exactly why, but you can save it (right click on it) to your pc, then upload it for example on www.photobucket.com (need an account though) and then you can do that right click procedure as above. and you can delete it from your pc.
