Album covers

Postby Nathan » Tue Sep 19, 2006 9:29 pm

I'm not saying we should start a thread about album covers or anything. Or maybe I am. In any event, something deep in my soul is forcing me to share this.

That's sweet! I mean, I've read Il Milione and have tracked Polo's adventures across the silk route and into the empire of the Mongols, but I didn't realize there were such hot chicks.

Lemmee keep to my clown theme for a moment, if I may:

...because I'm still reeling from the Black Dahlia's "clowns make us torture-killers" theme.

Now then, is your party winding down? Shoot this disc on the ol' Bell & Howell BSR 3800 and watch as everyone perks up!

Then there's this:

The headmaster at my school inferred as much, and he was summarily dismissed.

In a perfect world, my life will be exactly like this. I'd like to be the moustachioed gent in the chair, but if I end up as ukulele-boy, that's cool too.

Here's a site that just about sez it all... http://porktornado.diaryland.com/albumcover.html ... it even has "Let Me Touch Him" involved...

...what is up with that woman? Is her hair aflame? Or is she just standing in hell?

Speaking of...

There's a lot of touching going on.

Just don't be touched by this guy.

I have a request, Ken. Please don't enslave me with your zombie eyes, or make me sit next to that glory-hole.

Though Elvis stole black music, no giant white Jesus ever appeared to box his ears!

Guess a lot of people were into the touching mania of the 60s-early 70s.

Dang Miguel! That drumgirl is wigging me out! Is she supposed to be some sort of Hindu god? Any chance she's related to this gal?

:D LOLOLOL hubby and I are having a right laff at this thread! It started very ominously with the world's creepiest clown but the religious touchy-feely folk have certainly lightened the atmos! Hubby's now crawled off into the attic to have a root through his vinyl :wink: brb for the English contingent.

take a look at my folks old records.
I guess we'll have to do this since eventually we'll get music downloaded off the internet-no album covers involved.
It'll be a lost 'art'.

A great Jerry Falwell album. As if there was another kind.

Image

I imagine the interchange something like this:

Jerry: Where are the dead?
Bob: I dunno, they were here a minute ago.
Jerry: You don't think that--that they--
The Dead: BRRRRAAAAAIIIINNNNSSSS!!!!!
Jerry and Bob: AUUUUUGGGGGHHHH!!!

Oh, THIS is the day. I thought it was next Tuesday. Did he make those waters erupt from the earth?

The Jesus Use Me has everything.

This isn't as good as Gertrude's "God Isn't Dead" -- no midcentury bottles and needles -- but at least these folk are apparently framed with dripping blood.

And wasn't Leadbelly's name really Ledbetter? Is Leadbelly one of these folk?

Addicted to God, huh? I hear there's a 12-step program for that.

Now, there are some people who should do limbo.

And there are some people who should not.

Though in fairness, this lady has 'em all beat.

I think I'm in love.
