    Hey! I don't know if it's just my computer or what but all the images aren't visible for me? Image 1 and 3 seem to be encrypted/have an error code. Just thought I should let you know! I'm considering entering but I was hoping to be able to view all the images.

    Ah! You are right! They worked when I put them in, but they seem to be issues now. I will find two new images.

    Hi, I'd love to enter. ( ◠ ◡ ◠ ) I haven't decided yet on a photo/song, due to not being able to see them. However, I was wondering if it was possible to enter with a photo or song of our own?

    @ sushitrash.
    Hey! For the photo, I will allow that because of my inability to have found 2 more photos. For the songs though, please stick to the list provided!

    Hey! I checked back and saw your comment about using different photos. None of the ones on the list really struck me but I liked this one a lot and it vibes with another idea I had! Is it okay if I use it? https://c8.alamy.com/comp/RGJX3H/relaxed-couple-sitting-on-couch-woman-playing-the-guitar-at-home-RGJX3H.jpg
