Wednesday · October 08 2003

Album cover art without the artist and title is surprisingly hard to identify. Take a look at the album cover challenge at meish.org. Ok, so you know the first one shown is Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness by the Pumpkins. *polite golf clap* It gets alot harder. I don't have the answer key though I'm 100% sure on 14 out of the 60. Humbling.

What you had to say:

Very cool,even though apparently *I* am not.
I only knew 5, perhaps 7.
Was Sting in there?
His show last night was awesome. It was surreal, though. The sound and video stream were great quality, and the backdrop of the Amoco/Aon/whatever building and two "Go Cubs" signs in lights on buildings to our left were not my typical Chicago mental pictures. The drummer wore a jersey and hat during the encore. Sting announced the score a couple of times, I do believe. Fun stuff. Did I already post all that?!?! I need to work today. Work? Work. Work? Work. Gah.

Geez. That's tough. I got 23. I tried really hard, and I'm a music geek.

Whoa. Only sure on 7, maybe a couple more if I look a bit longer.
