Guess That Art - A Mocking Music Contest (Pt. 2)

Calum Marsh

The next time someone tells you that Microsoft Paint sucks, punch 'em square in the jaw. I've been toiling away on this week's Guess That Art picture, and I think the end result proves conclusively that when it comes to butchering classic cover art, nothing beats MS Paint. That's right, just like we promised, Mocking Music is proud to punctually present the second Guess That Art contest.

The rules have changed a tad since last week, so listen up: Don't write your answers in the comment box. Instead, send us an email (either or complete with your answer and mailing address - don't worry, we won't send flyers or mail bombs - and wait to hear back from us. Of the hundreds - nay, thousands - of responses we'll likely receive, only one lucky winner will selected at random, whose name we'll announce this time next week.

This week's prize: Two mix CD's featuring favourite tracks of Casey and I; mostly recent songs and, hopefully, stuff you haven't heard. And a used, but in excellent condition, copy of Now It's Overhead's (Saddle Creek) 2001 self-titled debut. Reviewed on Pitchfork here and Allmusic here.

If you know the answer right away, great, but we kindly ask that you refrain from ruining the fun for others by blabbing in the comment window. That being said, compliments directed toward me and my drawing are welcome (and encouraged), so feel quite free to discuss my awesomeness. It won't help you win, but in the grand scheme of the blogging world, mine is certainly a favour worth currying - that, and I just plain like flattery. Moving on . . .

This week's picture is excellent, if I do say so myself, though I suppose it's a tad easy to guess. If you don't know this album, do your goddamn homework. Indie kids these days, never listening to anything before 1998.

Once again, I've replaced the character on the left with myself. I'm modest like that. Oh, and just so the losers feel like winners too, here a few more rare tracks I've been into lately:

The Streets - Can't Con An Honest Jon (New Song)
Final Fantasy - Arctic Circle (New Song)
Death Cab For Cutie - Underwater! (B-Side)

The Streets- The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living
Final Fantasy - Has A Good Home
Death Cab For Cutie - Something About Airplanes

So why doesn't the guy on the right have his arm around the guy on the left as in the original? Too gay for you?

In Calum's defense, the whole change to a black shirt thing, would make it look like a disembodied hand.

Besides, gay things are just so... you know... gay.
