Coincidence? - Jarrett Heather — LiveJournal
Jarrett Heather's Journal
Of course it is. But this has to be by far the most eerie coincidence yet.

This is the cover art for the latest album from Oakland hip-hoppers "The Coup".

Before you condemn it as the most tasteless marketing decision ever, consider that this album was released on September 4th, 2001.

Look at the details of this artwork. I wonder what the person who created this was thinking when he turned on the news yesterday.

What a terrible coincidence.

I saw that posted as a joke somewhere.

Hold on, I'll find it.

Creepy album cover

I don't have a copy, but I heard that it's also in October's issue of Wired Magazine, that's been on shelves (or at least subscribers have already received it) for over a week.

Think anyone's contacted the FBI?

Do you think the lyrics may have something in them?

I mean, that's pretty damned specific?

Apparently they've now changed the cover. What a terrible coincidence though :o(

I think if that were my album cover I'd have wet myself or worse turning on the news. All you'd be able to do is sit there and wait for the authorities.
That's pretty friggin nutty for certain!

ya think maybe the creators are now residing somewhere in a fluffy padded cell?

Re: C&C

Because so many families have been affected by this tragedy, I think it would be in poor taste to use these sort of images to market a product and earn money.

Once the fantasy becomes reality, it's no longer appropriate. No one should profit from this... even if by coincidence.
