Radiohead Countdown Wallpaper: #1 of 7 Pablo Honey

For those who’ve been reading my blog lately, you know I’ve been doing a mini-countdown for the release of Radiohead’s new album, In Rainbows. Well, I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do for the next 7 days, that’s kind of a long time, and I wanted to do something exciting. And then it hit me!


Here’s how it’s going to work. I’m going to be making a desktop wallpaper for each Radiohead album, which will be released everyday till next Wednesday when the new album comes out. That means the first desktop wallpaper released is Pablo Honey!

Now, Pablo Honey is my absolute least favorite album of theirs, and the cover artwork is horrendous, so I knew I had to really think this one through. I decided thought of the words as separate items, and googled the shit out of ’em. I found the jar of honey first, which then gave me the idea to stick someone on it. So I started googling ‘Pablo’, and lo and behold, Pablo Picasso showed up! I hadn’t thought of him off the top of my head, honestly, so I was glad to see someone that famous. And who knows, maybe Picasso got cravings for honey? Then I spent a few hours pasting it all together in Photoshop, and there you have it. A new hip brand of Pablo (Picasso) Honey, and a new take on a classic album cover.

Be sure to check back everyday for the next week for a new wallpaper each day!
Tomorrows wallpaper is the The Bends, and I promise you that it’s absolutely nothing like the Pablo Honey one today!
