Figure Out Your Album Art. Album art is still important. As long as you get a few key things in place, releasing will be as joyous as laying down that first chord-the way it should be!

And what I now present to you is an excerpt from a book in progress. The book is called "50 Dangerous Things.
Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! is a children's book written and illustrated by Theodor Geisel under the pen name Dr. Seuss and published by Random House on August 21, 1975.

And actually going through this list, one by one, and checking them off. I promise, it feels almost better than sex to see the whole thing crossed out. 15.
