 Post subject: (no longer) Seeking whistling photos for record cover

I've got a record coming out and I want you to be on it.

The good people at Prank Monkey Records are planning to release a 12-inch with my "Whistler's Delight" on one side and "P-Funk is Playing at my House" on the other.

I'm putting together the cover art, and that's where you come in. I'm planning to make a collage of photos depicting people whistling, and I want you to take some and send them to me. They can be pictures of you, your friends, members of your family, your priest, your dealer, basically anyone who will play along.

I'll take whatever you can get to me, even if it's a blurry shot taken by a cell phone, but I'd prefer photos that are in color and shot using the high-quality setting on your camera. Please make sure you or your subjects really are whistling and not just pretending. Fingers-in-mouth whistling is allowed, as is using a referee, dog or other type of whistle. Do something clever and creative, or do something straightforward and simple. Anything is fine, and feel free to send multiple photos.

You won't be paid and I can't guarantee we'll use every photo that's submitted, but I can promise that all submissions will be appreciated, as I'm trying to collect as many shots as possible.

You can e-mail photos to me at djriko(at symbol)yahoo(insert a dot)com, or PM me a link to download them. Whichever is easier. Please get them to me by June 1 or sooner. If you have any questions, just ask.

Thanks to anyone who participates.

I know that name... hello Venusian :)

[Edit]Actually that's probably not the same Venusian, as I can't imagine he'd spam a board with proxy server info... :?

I guess I'm too late, but when is that record coming out? I guess the times where you sent them to me for free is over, so where can I buy it?
