So this one came from the man in the field, who’s seen as many of these and will be a part of the blog hierarchy very shortly, Alex.

Looks like the Slow and Fear (as well as the list of things to do) are in one marker, with the of smell finished at a later date.  Perhaps that blop of schmutz is an erased “buy a new black marker”. Or maybe it said, “finish list”. Either way, a neat cover to ponder.

This one comes courtesy of Alex, and boy howdy, it’ll wake you up. Throughout the covers I’ve seen over the last decade, there is definitely a Christmas-y undertone from a lot of them – red/green and tinsel being the obvious ones. Think this was a grab from Discogs.

I guess it’s only appropriate to celebrate baseball’s spring training starting with a cover loosely related to baseball. Who am I kidding, who gives a fuck about baseball? Gold spray-painted back, similar to the R2-D2 one from a while back (Variation #11), and Variation #132. This one also comes from Senor Dynamite.

So, Senor Dynamite sent these in, the first of two. Obviously a riff on Fidelity Jones’ Piltdown Lad LP  – which is one of those records that you either like, or have taste.

Copped from ebay, no real purchase information other than the usual ebay legal disclaimers.

But don’t shit on the little guy cuz that’d be way ageist, y’know

Seems like a statement that only the 90’s could’ve put on a record cover. The black electrical tape is reminiscent of my cover, which had tape around the edges ala MRR’s catalog.

Alex found this one at End of an Ear, the finest record store in Austin, TX currently (way better than Waterloo which has perpetually been overrated). I don’t know why MITB’s “Combat Weed” song gets the bonus plug, but it does. I mean, it’s an awesome song and all, but kind of a dis to others on the compilation.

This version courtesy of Sam Smith, who wrote this about it:

This copy was purchased here in Winnipeg where I live. There’s a few copies in these parts, I know that for sure. Maybe they’ve already submitted theirs. Who knows!

Which is an appropriate time to pimp the blog – thanks Sam. If you have a copy take a picture, front and back, and submit it via e-mail to dietsociety@yahoo.com

This one courtesy of ebay, but really, ironically appropriate for Halloween. Foot Foot Scary! If in fact, that is foot foot, he/she looks more like a cross between a Gremlin and Grimace (yes, the giant purple turd from McDonalds). Not scary at all.I often wonder about Grimace and whether he’s the grown up, mutated version of Eyeore, but I digress. Everyday is Halloween fuckers, so enjoy it. Also, whoever won this one got a good ‘un for $8.

“A moulderin’…”

This one courtesy of Alex Sanchez, who has sought out these things like a bloodhound. I’m looking too of course, but can’t get seem to get the scent. Regardless – this is the copy that belongs to the drummer of Mouthpiece. Standard back (although I’d debate the standard back idea, as we’ve seen some weird variations like Richmond addresses, or no Only 5 Made sticker, that occur frequently enough that I’m not sure, even 100+ covers in, that there’s a standard back) . Not a big deal, because I’m sure standard back means just the track listing stickers.

Triangle corner notes pop up again, as they did in Variation #9,Variation #72 and Variation #13.

Always the simple one’s eh, Daniel? Someone else bought it, which would’ve been an amazing addition to the bland covers collection. Looks like Sam McPheeter’s handwriting on this one as well. This bears some resemblance to: Variation #114.
