Some requests

I'd just like to make some requests. This is for my SOR assignment: one of my scenes is going to be a collage of photos of various celebrities and famous people. Thus, I thought I would ask for some input, or more precisely, photos. If you do have something to offer me, make sure that if I were to scale it down so that it fits in the space I have available, it won't become a mishmash of colours but actually still appear to be people. Thanks.

Now, the requests.

Fritz: do you have any really good pictures of Linkin Park?

Pat: the same as above, but for Metallica.

Lauren: the same as above, but for Clay.

All you people who have fallen in love with actors like Orlando Bloom lately might want to contribute a really good picture.

And although I already have enough U2 pictures, the U2 fans on my friends list may have some absolutely incredible U2 picture you can't resist contributing.

And if you have a photo of anyone else you'd like to contribute, feel free to do so.

Now, how will you get these to me? I can't remember if you can post pictures on comments, so if you can't, either e-mail me or point me towards the website it's on. Thanks, everyone.

I've uploaded some sound files of myself speaking. There's some nonsense, rubbish, and stupidity about some stinking hot weather, along with another take and yet another attempt. Alright, they're all pretty repetitive, but I'm not sure which to cut so I decided to upload the lot of them. They're all 420 kilobytes or thereabouts. Download as many or as few as you want. I hope I've uploaded it correctly and that it works! Please tell me if there's some form of error. I know the sound quality's poor and my voice might be a bit hard to hear ... I'm hoping to get some better software and a better microphone (seeing I'm using my headphones as a microphone) with my new computer. I was going shopping for a new computer this afternoon, but the weather's packing in so we're going to go tomorrow after school instead.

Edit: I just attempted to use the links myself to download the files, and I found by clicking on it, I was given an error message by Geocities, but by right clicking on the link, selecting "Copy shortcut", pasting it into the address bar, and hitting enter, it would work.

The Gold Coast Indy is getting ready to start. The one day of worldwide fame for the Gold Coast, and hopefully the race this year will be good. A storm's rolling in so that should make things interesting. Last year the weather was atrocious: the crash at the start was spectacular and exciting, but the rest of the race was dull and boring, just the Indy cars following the pace car around. And in 2001, it was also very boring - one guy slid off at the start and that was it. I've always found other forms of car racing - notably the V8 Supercars - more exciting than this. But hopefully this year it'll be a good one.

By the way, this is sheer brilliance and will be found very amusing by any fans of the band comprised of Bono, Edge, Adam, and Larry, and collectively known as U2 (Er, I mean, comprised of Onob, Egde, Mada, and Yrral and collectively known as 2U), or by ... anyone. Hehe, it's GREAT. It is indeed a refreshing insight into a very quixotic rock band. And how stupid was I! I always thought All That You Can't Leave Behind was their latest album! I have now seen my foolish error. Time must go in reverse for me.
