Random picture of the day
An appropriate choice: A picture for the Random series of car CDs.
I've only owned one car in my life, a 1999 Mazda Protegé which I bought new and still have. The car came with a CD player and I added a tape player. (Since, I've added an iCar.) I started burning a series of CDs called Random I
, Random II
and so on. Music specifically a) to be listened to in a moving car and b) to be played using the "Random" function of the CD player. I usually listen to the radio, but for longer trips the 14 Random CDs were my main listening until the rise of the iPod.
CD and Random CD case has a different color scheme, so I can easily distinguish them while driving. Pictures of me in my new car were taken in 1999 by Brian Westley with a Polaroid, and I played with them to various effects. This particular shot is run through the PhotoShop Sumi-e filter and first used on Random VIII
Just for fun, here is the listing Random I
