As the world population hits the 7 billion mark, it feels like just about every single one of those people has a blog. In this sea of rants, raves, ramblings, images, insights and inspiration, it’s hard to know what is worth your time and what’s not. That’s where Blog Spotted comes in, helping you to figure out what’s worthy of your attention, one blog at a time.
Once in a while, you need a blog that only takes two seconds to look at, requires an attention span of a goldfish, and just makes you feel good. That’s when thekittencovers.tumblr.com comes into play. Kitten Covers is exactly what the title leads you to believe it is: Classic album artwork where the main image is replaced with adorable kittens (that WAS what you thought it’d be, right?). Or as the site so eloquently puts it, “Legendary albums from a world dominated by kittens…” It is spectacular in its simplicity as each iconic album cover is captioned with a brief cat-centric description, but that only helps to point out how purr-fect this idea is. A few highlights to consider as you purr-use the site (I can’t help myself): Van Morrison’s Moondance ,dubbed ‘Cat Morrison’, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts’ I Love Rock-N-Roll, dubbed ‘Joan Kitt’, and of course, The Beatles’ Let It Be, dubbed ‘The Kittens’. Adorable kittens on bad-ass album covers. It doesn’t get much better that that (unless you can get puppies into the mix somehow).
The Kitten Covers posted its first entry just a few days ago on October 31st, which means we are all lucky enough to enjoy this delightful site before Urban Outfitters gets their hands on it, exposing it to the masses via ironic t-shirts. It’s safe to say that the music lovers everywhere are constantly clicking refresh on their browser, taking bets on which of their favorites will be catified next. Fingers crossed I eventually get to see interpretations of More Songs About Buildings And Food by Talking Heads, The Black Album by Jay-Z and Elephant by The White Stripes. I think it’s safe to assume we’ll soon see something by Cat Power as well…how could anyone let that opportunity pass by?
That’s about all there is to the site, and why should there be anything more? It’s the best. So do yourself a favor, and when you’re having a bad day or just need a break at work, indulge your kitten loving inner-child and your pitchfork reading music snob all at the same time and check out The Kitten Covers.
