I can't work out how to get the static image link from Flickr...

Mine is:

More Damaging To Yourself Than To Them by Tartronate-semialdehyde synthase
Cover


(That's not actually the real cover because I clicked away from the first choice and couldn't get back to it for some reason. The real one was a photo of a train in the distance in a green landscape.)

"You don't need a purpose in life." by The Tempest

I actually find these work together - The idea of not needing a purpose suggests valuing simply being, and the band name suggests the total randomness of physical forces converging, while the photo highlights the beauty of simply existing, comparable to Jesus's statement "Consider the lilies of the field - they toil not, and yet I tell you that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed as splendidly as these."

In the bottom right of the dark field where the picture is you should see three icons. A star, a curved arrow pointing to the right, and a line arrow pointing down. The curve arrow is Share. Click on it, and a box will come up with some share options. Click on BBCode, and copy the code it gives you. You paste the code into the post window here.

Hmm, that's not helping because in this case because it doesn't give me a UBB code option with the URL path to the .jpg image itself, which is what everybody else has been using to embed the image - I only get a short permanent link to that photo on Flickr... Apparently not all images are shareable, including the one I just picked.

No Need of Defining It (or Gumption) by Uriah Bell.

(The static image path should go here but here's a link instead...)

(It would have worked for the picture in the first example, if I'd found the icon...)

I got carried away the first time this came around, and made a whole album of my albums (scroll through to see all my masterpieces). Don't have time to make a new one today, but... soon.
