Ugh, I can't wait to eventually move to the East Coast and have some good pizza again.

What's so special about East Coast Pizza?
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I have and I agree.  Of course there are places as good in other states but I know as a Boston guy where it's at.

It's all about the tomatoes and cheese.  NYC pizza is the best.

There's a pizzeria down the street  from my job that's one of the best I've ever had.

It's all about the tomatoes and cheese.  NYC pizza is the best.

It's the water.  ;)   

So if I am eating Little Ceaser's , am I doing it wrong? :neverusethis:

If you show up at my house with a Little Caesar's pizza, you're going to wind up like Caesar.

So a coworker of mine, who is also working in Real Estate, showed me a listing from a local Real Estate agent looking for an Full Time Assistant. Local. Mainly data entry and running around for her and what not. Starts at $5 more an hour than I make currently. I am thinking about going for it.

Why are you thinking about it and not doing it? I rarely meet anyone who hates their job as much as you do. Go for it.

Then take all that extra money and go to New York and eat some real pizza.

You guys know shit about shit.  Say I have a logo/band name that's already kinda put together.  There are two things I want to do to it.

1)  Outline all the letters in white in some fashion.
2)  Take ONE of the letters and superimpose flames over it.

Is this something I could easily do with free software like GIMP?

Probably, I'm sure it echos the procedures made popular in Photoshop. The outline is simply a layer blending option. Probably the easiest way to put flames in one of the letter is to create a layer mask and past the flames into that. You may need to copy the test layer and rasterize it prior to making the layer mask.

GIMP can definitely do it. Is this logo a font, or a hand drawn sort of thing?
Alternatively, I'd be happy to do it for you, if you want.

It is a font.  It's not even something I'm 100% certain we'd use, but it's an idea I want to float by band members to see what they think.  I'll send it over to you, because the amount of time it would take me to actually learn how to do this and apply it properly would be like all day or something.  Thanks.
