This next one came almost by accident. I was fooling around with an image editing program and I noticed one of the filters – I think it was called “charcoal” – created a similar effect as the Les Misérables poster.
That year most of the CS majors were not fans of the MIS department. This was probably due to MIS’ incompetence and stupidity.
After some more crude graphic work, I came up with:
The original plan was to have a completle musical, but we ran out of time and talent. So we just listed song titles, some of which made sense (Empty Chairs and Broken Cables), others private jokes (no more 501), and others were supposed to be changed before we went to print (Lovely Ladies).
It turned out that we didn’t need to write lyrics because people were making up words on their own. Go figure.
