Gerald Levert's not getting back in the studio with The Rude Boys anytime soon, so get something written all over your face by GA-based Textographer, a service that takes any relevant words you desire (lyrics, love letters, Baby-sitter’s Club books), and magically turns them into a portrait of basically anything you want. Upload a photo, plus the aforementioned words, and their wizard-science-driven algorithm will manage light and dark spaces, kerning, and other stuff you've never heard of, to produce a large, frame-able print you can clearly see, and words you can read, unless you neglected your Book It! responsibilities. Here’re some ideas for what words to use/not use for different photos:
A Lovely Photo of Your Mom for Her 60th Birthday
You should use: Lyrics to "Dear Mama", by Tupac, because it's a heartfelt ode to a single mother who provided for her son against all odds.
You should definitely not use: Lyrics to "Mother", by Danzig, because she hates goth metal/people named Glenn.
A Snap of Your Beloved Prius With 20in Rims
You should use: A choice piece of text from On the Road.
You should definitely not use: A snippet from An Inconvenient Truth, because you have 20in, fuel-economy-destroying rims on your Prius.
A Particularly Handsome Shot of Your Labrador Retriever, Scraps
You should use: Lyrics to Snoop Dogg’s “Doggy Dogg World”, because he’s crazy and mixed up. And also a dog.
You should definitely not use: Anything from the soundtrack to Cats, unless you want to be hilarious.
