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!

    I’m just wondering what sort of drugs I need to take to see the complete orgy.

  10. fred Says:

    A Beat Generation poet from San Francisco. Who’d have guessed that from this cover.

    ‘Orfever Changes’?

    Someone at UAI was inhaling near Bob Pepper. I may get the duvet-cover, to go with my Joy Division Oven Gloves .

    Tony Orflando and Dawn.

  15. Tor Mented Says:

    The “Recent Comments” section lists us all on Orf.

  16. Bruce A Munro Says:

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

    @A.R. Yngve: so giant Hippie Jesus Head is actually an Orfan robot?

  17. Leak Says:

    “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

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    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

  21. Tat Wood Says:

    @BMunro: “Valderee, valderaa, valdereee, valder-Aargh! My Eyes!”

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @GSSxn—Orffenbach? The Tales of Orffmann?

  23. Stephen Daugherty Says:

    The women are saying, “GET ORF OF ME!”

  24. Emster Says:

    Looks like a high school art project that went off the rails and is just weird enough that it won’t be displayed on the big bulletin board in the foyer where the parents and school trustees walk by… but will spend the rest of the year on the teachers’ lounge bulletin board secretly known as the “What-Sh*t-Was-That-Kid-Smoking Wall of Fame”
