I recently got a home computer and am facinated by what you can do with it. I especially enjoy saving images I like on CD-ROM. As I’ve already said on the bbboards, I having been thinking for some time what it would be like to make my own coffee table book dedicated to something that has been near and dear to my heart for some time now–the beauty of men.
I’ve already lined up some nice images from the image section of google (quite possibly the best image search engine on the web–
here, you can try it for yourself if you like). I cannot put the images here–it might violate some copyright or something, plus I’m not sure how to do that. But, if you will indulge me for a moment, I would like to describe my coffee table book as it now exists on my CD-ROM. Remember, as I said on the bbboards it will be set to a famous quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Enjoy:
TITLE PAGE: “What a Piece of Work is a Man” [in Edwardian Script] “by William Shakespeare and (my name)” [in Arial Black]
CAPTION: “What a piece of work is a man!”
PICTURE: From the Sistine Chapel: God giving life to Adam.
CAPTION: “How noble in reason!”
PICTURE: Nobel laureate Albert Schweitzer.
CAPTION: * “how infinite in faculty!”*
PICTURE: A male and female police detective on the field.
CAPTION: *“in form and moving how express and admirable!”
PICTURE: NFL superstar Keyshawn Johnson.
CAPTION: *“in action how like an angel!”
PICTURE: New York firefighters raising the battered flag over ground zero.
CAPTION: “in apprehension how like a god!”
PICTURE: Stephen Hawking, noted professor and genius.
CAPTION: “the beauty of the world!”
PICTURE: A lone flower.
CAPTION: "the paragon of animals!
PICTURE: A mother gorilla with her children.
So what do you think? You will notice though I am gay, I have included a female police person for completeness. I have also included an African-American athlete, also for completeness. But it was not entirely accidental that I chose Mr. Johnson. He seems very attractive to me. Plus he has some unusual lines and symetry, especially around his legs and face.
Here, you can see for yourselves what I mean.
All I need now is to take it to “Kinkos” to have it taken off CD-ROM and put into booklet form. The only problem is I originally wanted it in coffee table book form! Does anyone know someone who would do that for me. In any event, thank you all for letting me share this with you.
