Should I do another skin, or would Geddy be mad if I do?

Ian Anderson would be watching...

I'm presuming this is another masturbation euphemism.

I don't know, but it's been said: You do or don't and then you're dead
So climb away, get higher, son- never straight, just move ahead
Know, my child, that there is no devil seekin' to cause guilt in the hearts to men.
No evil, save blind faith, ignorance, and the desire for the unprepared to blame others for the devastation left in the wake of change.
Fear not the movement of the heavens above or the earth below for change is what we are, my child.
And if we are reflections of the divine we must roll with these changes, for we are these changes.

Marty Feldman will be watching Ian Anderson from the grave watching you masturbate.

If you feel inspired and have the time, sure. But please don't feel like you have to.

So it was Geddy who gave the most grief over the artwork, way back when?

 

Ken, personally, I'd love to see a skin based on the 1st album. Would be appropriate especially given the RRHOF this year. ;)

Your "Rush"-themed skin was very nice, Ken. Too bad we didn't get to enjoy it very long before the board crashed.

 

And I don't need to tell you that I miss "my boo", Grace Under Pressure.

The mere mention of new skins has caused the board to go on the fritz.

I am quite content with the CA skin.  It's pretty damn good.  

Like Joe said, if you have the time and inclination, go ahead.  I remember really liking your 2112 and P/G skins on the last board.

 

But don't feel obligated to engage in a labor of love.


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

This skin is nice, but I have to admit the black background kinda hurts my eyes, especially after reading a while and then changing windows to another webpage with the standard white/light-colored background. I'm not too crazy about the font either, but that's neither here nor there.

 

I had the same problem with 2112 as well, but I liked that one and used it as my default until GUP came back. The S&A background was also very nice.

 

I do remember the original Feedback skin being very...interesting as well. Good times.

I much prefer reading (on a webpage, anyway) white or light-colored text on a dark or black background, so the CA skin right now is good.  On the last version of the board, it was 2112.

Yes, the T4E skin was very nice too. And wasn't there a Hemispheres skin at one time?

Yes! I think that was when there was a Hemispheres skin.

I second that. I'd like to do one myself. Maybe a p/g or something based on ATWAS.
