    I think Metallica was right around 20 when they did Kill Em All.

    The top half has a plain white 12" x 12" square with a small black dot in the middle....this represents how much you truly know and understand about life as a 20 year old.

    The bottom half has the exact opposite black square with a small white dot in the middle representing how much a 20 year old THINKS they know and understand about life.

    These two are both 20 years old and were recorded by 20 year olds.

    Good advice for every 20 year old out there.....in a few years you can follow it too.

    Wisdom comes with age my friend....I know I'm much wiser today than when I was 20.....anyone over 30 who tells you different is a liar.

    But feel free to continue proving my point.

    Shame you failed to understand it though.

    Yes, your point, young = dumb, old = wise. Well call me Sonny, what a revelation.





    Waxbandit do you have enough inspiration for your project yet?

    The one MOke can't be 20, because this graf is at least that old

    MOke, why you had to foul up my hood with your weak ass tag style?

    Hey on a side note related topic. Pauls Boutique LP is 20 yrs old this year....

    So maybe theres something to look into.. the artwork/lp has been re released in some kind of 'directors' cut/remastered' package. But more intersting is the fact that that album is now a 20 year old..... ;-)

    How old where the Beasties when they made it, they had to be around the 20 year old mark....methinks...

    I think this is what R. Kelly told Aaliyah to tell her parents upon learning that he had turned their daughter out at the tender age of 16.

    Was this done in Processing?

  • in illustrator

    i just copied and pasted the full text

    changed each persons post to a colour corresponding to the ATQC LP

    and then copied and pasted at random, a lot

    it works real nice as a 60x80cm poster - you can read each line when you get close but from distance it just looks real abstract

    i've got about 20 variations where i've used the align tool a lot, but my tutor advised me to enter this one

    peace
