Picture This!

So around the end of last year I noticed the most recent effort from The National "Boxer" kept popping up on a bunch of people's best albums of 2007 lists. Never heard of them. I'm not really hip to that "independent rock" that some of the young kids are listening to these days and frankly I don't know how all these long haired bands and not traditionally good looking girls are ever gonna make a dime with that kind of sound. Nevertheless what it did remind me of was the short lived 70s band "Boxer" who's only claim to fame was one of the most inappropriate and hilariously misogynistic album covers by a band not named the Scorpions. I had five minutes to kill,

So through the magic of computers...

Boxer, round 2. Say what you may but there's definitely more to look at here then some old wedding photo. This definitely would have sold a few more records...or alienated all their fans...whichever.

Also I probably should have done some NSFW warning and linking; but I figure shame on you for idly surfing the net reading blogs while at work and school. Is this what the internet was made for?

    I think we can all appreciate the relevance of that now.

    "Well so what? What's wrong with being sexy?"
