What the hell does it mean, Billy? Why are you looking lovingly at the blank mask? Why are there boxing gloves on the wall? Why are still touring when you haven't written new music since 1992?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/7c/5MCD12.jpg

I just want very much for this not to be photoshop and that really be some sideshow freak and I want to buy him a beer. I also still love that this album is called "no doy."

This should have been a scene in Kill Bill. I only wish there was some motion blur on the car instead of it just looking like she's chilling on it in park.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d0/The_Long-Playing_EP.jpg

It's kinda hard to see in that image, but it's a time-lapse photo of a record with candles on it spinning around, so it makes a kind of ring of light that's neat.

I'm probably not cool enough for this game.

I was going to pop in to say "inb4 this thread gets flooded with progshit", but it looks like this is a recently-bumped old thread and Soren has beat me to that punch by at least two years.

RE: Kin Crimsong
Court of the Crimson King is a classic, but my favorite KC album cover is this:

https://blessedrelief.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/discipline.jpg

It's a good deal more minimalistic than KC's other album covers, but the huge, convoluted heraldic knot reminds you that this is King Crimson and King Crimson is anything but minimalist. It all melts into a jumble unless you really look at it up close and try to trace the lines. And if you do try to do that, it's quite easy to get lost in the twists and loops. A different version of the album has a different knot that's even harder to follow. If you listen to the album, you'll find that it's similarly jumbled and chaotic yet strangely hypnotic.

And what is the jumbled, chaotic album called?

Discipline.
