Default First Real Label

Now that I have about 100 bottles sitting in my storage closet i figure I can afford to slap some cool labels on them and then hand some out at parties. Here's what I have so far, its not completely down but its pretty close to the real thing. I think that my image is stretched too much horizontally, let me know what you guys think...

No, I used Photoshop. You can make something like this with a simpler program like paint if you have a PC, I have a Mac and I'm a video production guy so I like to use photoshop.

Moon River...

Ever see the Simpsons episode when Bart and the gang take a road trip and Nelson forces them to stop in Branson to see Andy Williams? Very funny episode.

I have seen that episode now that I think about it, but I pulled Moon River out of my ass kind of, it just sounds interesting and cool. I think I was listening to Fly Me To the Moon by Frank Sinatra when I thought of it.
