Stop me, oh, oh-o, stop me
Stop me if you think
That you've heard this one before

Nothing's changed
I still love you, oh, I still love you
Only slightly, only slightly less
Than I used to, my love

- Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before.

best Smiths record. Reunion wouldn't happen only if Morrissey and Johnny Marr got their heads out of their asses.

I screen shot the font type from MyFont found on the album cover, used the guide line rulers on Photoshop to get them as close to accuracy as possible. I used this Starlight Glimmer vector and then used this video as a way to give the aged effect, as well as to lower the hue, contrast/brightness, and thanks to an awesome friend, lower a bit of the gradient to give it this effect.

I actually did go out of my way to make it accurate.

I even used rule guidelines to make the logo/text as close to the original as I could.

I've developed such a strong patience thanks to the music I listen to. Some songs can go from 15 to even an hour and a half.

Jeez the longest i have heard was 14 minutes and that itsekf was technically just a mix of 4 different songs. Thats incredible

Dat's pretty cool :).

And yeah XD. Although even I have my limits. There's apparently a "song" a group released that was 11 hours long. However it's a drone/doom track that sounds like it repeats.

Well i gotta say i dont even have the patience to do anything for 11 hours, making a song that is 11 hours long is insane!

To be fair, it was a drone song and usually those songs repeat the same melody on ends.
