People may be busting to dine out...


Passed along from friend-of-a-friend to friend and so on, via Twitter, apparently.
I don't really do Twitter, so apologies for posting a thing that may have gone viral already.

A perfect visual metaphor for the tension laying within.
Well, assuming you've seen 'Alien', anyway. If you haven't seen that 41-year-old movie (gasp!!), Spoiler Alert; the scene will end in a big mess.

- - But that's just the movies, surely. Good luck out there and bon appétit!

Classic Punk Albums Reimagined with Blue Note Jazz Cover Stylings: A John Yates portfolio

(Many thanks to an old friend, Mr. Burma, Music Librarian / DJ at KALX Radio in Berkeley, for directing attention towards this collection of images!)




The graphic design work of John Yates has been showing up on album covers and in other places since the late 1980s.

His design portfolio site, Stealworks has a section of 'Ideations', that includes this series of "Punk Note" album covers; Taking classic punk rock albums released between 1965-1990, and re-imagining them with design elements drawn from the Blue Note jazz record label.

Some of these imagined covers are 'merely' really fun, or really good

Some of them are also transcendently f***ing brilliant. 

That's my take, anyway...
