As of writing this I’m sicker than a dog, I’m running a fever of 101º, and my flesh feels like it’s going to melt. But to take my mind off of things, I’ve been reading Sleevage all night. Sleevage is a blog that talks about the covers to records and CDs, giving you the inside scoop on who made them, and getting to see the larger campaigns that an album might have.

They cover a million different albums, all with really great commentary as well. For example, the Michael Jackson cover for Dangerous which you see above. It turns out it was painted by Mark Ryden, everyone’s favorite painter of meat and Abe Lincoln. How crazy is that? I had no idea it was him!

Definitely give the site a visit, it’s a really great read.
