Eye Spy:

Ran across a really cool idea if people have a lot of spare time. There are a few guys that take classic album covers and translate them into Microsoft Paint. The picture above is of a classic Beatles cover. Comment below if you can figure out the album title.

Guess you CAN make lemonade out of apples...
