I was going to write about Paul Robeson, but my local library has requested a book from the other side of the county for me. Not sure when it's going to arrive. smiley - sadface

smiley - cool. Paul Robseon's a cool topic. While you're waiting for your book, why not watch 'Song of Freedom' on archive.org?

Mine is developing into a three-tome autobiography. I think I'll have some editing to do before August is out and I have to submit it.

It's good to see people here. smiley - ok

Mine will also be a bit of a tome I think, TC.

I might have to pick a specific section.

I got my book on Paul Robeson, but it's huge! ('Paul Robeson' by Martin Bauml Duberman.) Even skim reading it's going to take me a while, and I'm going to have to give it back to the library before we go to France. smiley - erm

Great theme.

And I really like the part of the intro that says 'All comers are welcome, old, young, somewhere in between...(did I mention we're not fussy?).'

This helps me, in many ways. smiley - ok. Good timing for me to read this. I'm sort of in between in quite a lot of ways. smiley - rofl

I've had a lifelong troubled relationship with trying to fit into the role of artist (clutches brow intensely), even though I create all the time, smiley - rofl. I've had fears about contributing, get easily out of my depth. So this has set up a dilemma, because I want to support Create.

However, in the last few months, I've quit a lot of my internal pressures, and now I am free to share the vistas and vistions of my life, just for what they are. A free ranging, eccentric old lady smiley - senior on the loose. smiley - rofl. Uh oh...

To get to the point .... All I can do these days is create a photograph, with funny writing all over it. Like a postcard. Or postcards. smiley - rofl. I have a lot to say about the soundtrack of my life. smiley - rofl.

If I can get it together before the end of August, then I'll try to send it to you, if this format is appropriate.

If I make a photo of an album cover, incorporated into a collage, do I have to credit it somehow? I don't want to get into copyright problems.

If I'm too slow with this project, and if August turns to September, smiley - rofl, it was good to write to you here, and thanks for that great intro and for your themes.

cc smiley - ok

CC, I'm not an expert on copyright smiley - erm but this is what Tavaron said about featuring a book cover to go with a book review

"We can do it as long as it's obvious that it is a book(cover). What we can't do is take a photo of just the picture on the book. If you know what I mean."

Photo's are smiley - cool as well, cc.

Not sure about album covers, but I'm sure an artist could help us with that one.

I'll ask.

Hmm. Interesting. Thanks mvp! That's useful. I'm glad I asked now.

I might avoid the issue by making a photograph of how the album in question sounds to me. Which could get abstract, and consequently peculiar, in a zig zag kind of a way. smiley - rofl.And yet my intentions to support Create are strengthening. If I can match the theme to the format.

Thanks!

Hullo Magwitch! Thanks for getting back. So a photo would be OK? Great! It's OK, I'm diverting from the album cover to my own original design. Uh oh. smiley - rofl.

Oooh I'm here! (wanders in from another universe) I know where I am!

What??? smiley - huh

smiley - rofl

It's just that I have finished my little photographic piece for this project, emailed it to my friend Mister D, that would be Dmitri, because I don't know how else to get photos onto hootoo, and he gave me splendid instructions by email on how to notify the Create team about this and offer an A number. So I thought I'd have to go on a reeeely long journey through cyberspace, but I'm here already. smiley - rofl

What???

Hullo Create, Magwitch and everyone. smiley - kiss

Since I don't think I'll get my Paul Robeson article finished in time, do I dare admit to a liking for Welsh hymns? A87807469

(Well, you did say you weren't fussy.)
