I hear this YouTube thing has some cool shit

I waste enough time poring over baseball blogs and obsessively dissecting news articles; because of that, my current involvement with YouTube generally consists of nothing more than checking Google’s stock price…because I’m determined to lose all of my savings in any tech bubble I can find.

But I digress. If you haven’t already seen Monty Python opening montage-esque (or, rather, the Terry Gilliam-esque) clip Battle of the Album Covers — in which the baby on the front of Nirvana’s Nevermind is killed by the dragon on Asia’s eponymous debut; the, um, protuberance from the Stones’s Sticky Fingers is inserted onto the cover of The Velvet Underground and Nico; and the Green Day grenade from American Idiot blows up Lionel Ritche, Phil Collins, and pretty much any ’80s artist who put a close-up shot of their faces on the covers of their records (they all end up in the Metallica Master of Puppets graveyard) — please, please, check it out.

(The clip was apparently put together by these guys and animated by this guy, although I can’t find any evidence of it on those sites.)
