I have now heard from about 600 people regarding the good old Top Ten Bands list story, and while some came to scorn, my winning personality (or simply the fact that I wrote back) has turned some into new pals (I have only threatened one emailer this time).
New bud Derek sends word of this hilarious list by Dusty Scott of the “10 worst album covers of all time.”
- A friend of mine sent me a link the other day that has kept me entertained with what has become my first top ten list. I guess “bottom 10” would be more appropriate, since it goes from “really bad” to “crime against humanity.” The problem with the original website featuring these album covers (Kersbergen has redirected his traffic to this site after his server got all gummed up) is that they were in no particular order and no one wrote any captions. I plan to fix that. Aside from that, I thank the person who gathered and compiled these works of art.

Have you ever been to one of those parties where everyone sits expectantly and watches two people dance around like retards in a retard shop? Right. No one has, because those parties don’t happen.

Granted, this one isn’t terribly offensive, but they get worse.
Click over and read on, it only gets better, er, worse.
