Remember Paint? The Microsoft Windows graphic programme that made everything look lurid and ridiculous? I miss it. And the MS Paint versions of classic album covers illustrate why. They're brilliantly, insanely awful, in the best possible way. Thank Marc Fischer, a Chicagoan who starting collecting the best examples from various forums a few years back and continues to display them on his website Public Collectors. (H/T Ego Trip)
