Are you all slapping your knees now?
"There's the stupid dummy right there!" - Tom Green
Rindy Ross is a fun name.
Here's the title track. Good stuff!

A giraffe at school! Not a real one, but pretty amazing in its own right! :) Imagine bringing that home to a kid.
The second paragraph begins by saying 'Eleven new songs that make us laugh, dance or "smurf."' Now, I've heard smurf used as a verb before, as we all have, but I'm not sure what it means in this case. Hadn't seen or thought of the term in a long time.
What do you think it means in this case? Shrink and turn blue?

Yeah, I know the title should be about more than just the guitar, but man, I love them Mosrites! (most famously played by The Ventures and later, The Ramones...playing Ventures Mosrite guitars, haha) I think it's neat that they had such specific lines such as the Gospel guitars as well. Really nice natural-looking one here. I've seen some amazing customized versions, too.
As for the cover, well, it kinda reminds me of those pictures parents would have done where one of their kids is superimposed onto the other one, but hey, it works. The contrast of light and dark is simple and effective.

Actually, it's Le Reve du Diable, a folk group from Quebec. Auberge means inn, which almost looks to be on fire at first glance in that drawing. Very cool! Love the style. Looks like good ol' ball point pen to me, at least in part.
More of that excellent art. :)
Their guitarist, as seen in the gatefold (ooo!) immediately reminded me of Our Lady Peace drummer, and now podcaster extraordinaire, Jeremy Taggart. (look up the Taggart & Torrens podcast and prepare for some laughs!)

I saw Jalousie not too long ago, but didn't get it because it wasn't in good shape, I think. Or...do I already have it? Uh...
Nice Riviera. That's the sort of car I wouldn't have thought much of growing up, but like now, especially when tastefully modified. They can look amazing!

This was a surprise. There can't be too many of these, right? Maybe a handful of different ones?
Louis Van Dyke is a Dutch pianist and organist. At his website, this album isn't even listed in his Discography section. B'oh! That's pretty common, I've found. They like to focus on things they've recorded in the last 10-20 years, especially if something old is out of print.
If I ever become a famous musician. you have my word that I'll list all my albums!
Here's his cover of "For No One", which sounds very grandiose! :)

Seriously, that's a curtain, right? I mean, she even used the tassle tie-back thingy as a bracelet! :p Well, she makes it look good, at least.
Some airbrushing/proto-Photoshopping going on with her eyes, I see.
