You know, I realize I never said what I thought of the new Cure CD and I still might not have except that it ties in with what I wanted to share today – I made my own Cure 4:13 Dream iPhone/iPod Touch wallpaper! Not that the happy pink flower I chose off the stock images wasn’t lovely for two days. It just wasn’t me. (In case you didn’t see my update, I traded in my Nano for a Touch. You can see why in the comments on the last post.) But it’s really easy to make your own, you just crop or stretch your image into 320×480. Easy peasy! But if you don’t want to DIY, here are two, one with the yarn stitches and one with the star. I have the star but I may switch. Which also ties in, as you will see.
Just right click on the image, save it on your drive, and sync as you normally do. Or if you’re like me and don’t sync, just e-mail it to yourself and open it on your iPhone or Touch.
Oh yeah, and the album – I love it! I guess you knew that because I made wallpaper out of the cover. And I did already highlight the song I liked best from the shows last year, Freakshow. But now that I’ve listened to it, I love another song better. It’s called Switch and has a flow that sounds sort of like the lyrics are swirling around a drain which works well because they’re about how you can change and descend almost without noticing. The music is all crazy, messy guitar and there are no quiet bits. It’s kind of like Robert Smith’s hair, I hope that’s visual enough.
