Okay, so I got my new David Garrett CD yesterday – and the music is brilliant – nice and classical and I’ve pretty much been listening to it nonstop on the iPod.
I know he was a model. I know he’s full of teh pretty. I know he could play the violin with his toes better than I’ll ever manage to play the piano normally (yeah, yeah – 7 years of lessons and all I got was this lousy T-shirt. I can read music. Sort of.) But seriously, isn’t this just a *little* over the top?
Is it me or is this picture (scanned from the CD leaflet) just *begging* to be Photoshopped into a romance cover? I mean, really, all I need is some kind of clinch image to superimpose beneath it and the work is pretty much done for me. Although, according to SmartBitches, a few animals going apeshit in the foreground is usually a bonus (you know – swans or horses or kangaroos or something). And a moon. And a big phallic sword.
So, come up with a title and a tagline and I’ll see what I can do, a la Longmire.
Mr myn, in all his male helpfullness suggested “He Fiddled With Her Heart” – though I think that works better as a tagline. I, myself, prefer “Gee, Don’t You Wish You Could See What I’m *Really* Holding With My Right Hand?”. Though, that’s too wordy.
Have at it, my faithful few. 😉
Edited to add:
And about 5 minutes after I posted this it got picked up on DG’s personal forums –> http://davidgarrett.forums.umusic.co.uk/t/670.aspx?PageIndex=5 (I’m down at the bottom).
So now I’m famous. Whee. And hopefully I won’t start getting a ton of hate-emails, ’cause as anyone who knows me knows, I can’t say enough good stuff about the guy. 🙂 You only hurt the ones you love and all that. LOL. In the meantime, suppose I’ll go wander over there and make an account and do some groveling. You know. Just in case. 😉
