Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    Normally I’d find the “Hippie Shit” tag a bit harsh, but not in this case: the cover is quite orf-putting.

    “ORF” has been what seems like always the name of Austria’s public broadcasting corporation, so I’ll just leave this here:

    A colorful dressed Christoph Waltz representing the new year 1977 and singing on Austrian children’s TV

    Soundtrack by Carl Orff?

    Someone left the art out in the rain…. oooohhh noooooo.

    @Leak: GSS! Perfect.

  19. JuanPaul Says:

    I’m pretty sure Carl Orff never went through a hippy phase.

  20. BMunro Says:

    @Leak: that leotard is worth a GSS post on its own.

    @Juan Paul: they called it Wandervögel
