    So I got a new laptop (MSI GX 640 -a beast of a machine, btw!) and I want a new desktop background to match the supreme coolness of the computer. I was originally thinking of a Bulb lightbulb photo, but I can't find what I'm looking for in a high enough resolution (I need 1680 x 1050). So if anyone has a cool photo, album cover, artwork suggestion, I'd love to hear it! The only requirements are that it look metal or at least dark (no happy smiley stuff), but not say the name of a band, or show band members, and it should pass the grandma test, so nothing NSFG. TIA if you have something!:yesway:

    Currently I'm rocking a couple of very similar photos of the NYC skyline taken at different times of day, and having them change accordingly. Here's a few of them at your res:

    A couple of my favorites!
    The skull ones a bit small, though.
