This year’s hot new muse? GOD. (or maybe alien abductions.) To honor this often ignored influence, a hastily compiled myopic rundown of heavenly jams:

The Beach Boys - God Only Knows

Hawkins – Jesus Christ Walks (Kanye West vs. Brand New)
Genesis - Jesus he knows me

Aberdeen City - God is going to get sick of me

Bloc Party - Better than Heaven
Japandroids - The house that Heaven Built
Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus

Fire Theft - Heaven
Pixies - Monkey Gone to Heaven

The Smiths - Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now

Carl Anderson - Heaven on their minds.

“I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: ‘This is the level that things could be at.’ […]it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities. I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.” – Kanye West

To celebrate the return of Mad Men we raided Kenny Cosgrove’s notebook and gave his surreptitious stories covers worthy of appearing alongside Pete Campbell’s offerings in Boys Life. Enjoy.

Update: Apparently we weren’t the only ones with this train of thought.  While you’re at it, enjoy some video games, video games and also video games getting a retro look.

Dusting off an old (unsolicited) promo for Nick Tahou’s in honor of BIG’s passing.
While I doubt Biggie ever had a Garbage Plate, I imagine he would have enjoyed it. Whether he would have enjoyed this reworking of Ready to Die’s cover art is less certain.
