Not sure how active any Darren communities are anymore, but here's some icons, if you'd like. The link goes directly to my entry in my journal.

Right hurrr.
Please comment and credit if you take any. :)

Happy Birthday

I've been recording a secret side project album with my long term co
writer and collaborator Robert Conley over the past 2 years.
It was
finished and mixed in December last year and just last week the album
was mastered.

It's a band we call 'We Are Smug'. Robert and I share lead vocal and
songwriting duties on everything, and up until this second, we haven't
spoken a word of it to anyone outside of our circle of friends.

But today, on my birthday, we've decided it's release day and if you
visit http://www.wearesmug.com/ you can download it for free.

This is not the direction of my next album, nor is 'free' the new
price for my music. This is just something I am doing because I can.

While you're digesting this, I'm hard at work on songs for a brand new
studio album for next year. It's a big 'fuck off' pop record. POP
with a capital P if you will. You better have high expectations.

In the meantime, enjoy being Smug.
And Happy Birthday.

I've been meaning to post to this community ever since I first joined, but since I have a new computer with a DVD burner I figure now is the perfect time.

Does anyone have the DVD of A Big Night In? If you do, would it be at all possible for you to rip it and upload it for me? I could most likely get a hold of a copy on eBay, but since I live in the US and our region code is 1 and the DVD is 4, I wouldn't be able to watch it.

If no one can get it uploaded, then may I ask a more technical question here? My new laptop says that I can change the region code up to 5 times (but A Big Night In seems to be region free, right?), and I'm wondering about the format. Is there a way for me to check if my computer will accept PAL formatted DVDs? I don't remember what the window had said about the format; I just noticed the region code information. I'm wondering if it's possible for me to buy the Big Night In DVD, insert it into my computer, rip it, and then burn a copy of it onto a blank DVD in region 1, NTSC format? I know that my DVD Creator software gives me the option to burn in either PAL or NTSC format, but my DVD ripping software has neither option.

I don't want to waste my time and money trying to do something that doesn't have any chance of working out, so any help would be greatly appreciated here. Thanks so much.

Hello again! I have yet another question, but this one is in the personal category. I actually have a question about Darren's partner, Richard. I know Darren won't answer "personal" questions, personally, so I figured that if anyone would know this answer it'd be you all. So, on to my question: When is Richard's birthday? Honestly, all I'm really interested in knowing is his zodiac sign. I'm sort of an astrology nerd, so I can't help but be curious to know what sign captured the sweet Taurus heart of Darren. Anyone know?

I have a question about The Time Machine Tour DVD. I want to get it, but it says on Amazon.com that there are explicit lyrics. I don't have a problem with curse words, but my young cousins and their parents may watch it with me and I don't want anyone offended. So can anyone that owns the DVD tell me exactly what is said/explicit? Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

I made:

71 icons
3 banners
4 wallpapers

Please note that the wallpapers are simply large photos that I've fixed up and turned into wallpapers. They are also all 1024x768 and 800x600, but I'm willing to make other sizes if necessary.

Here @ cityofwonders

The post will be public for 3 days.
