Randomly quite inspiring

While doing a bit of research and procrastination I found this out about New Order's Blue Monday Sleeve...

Another notable feature of the sleeve is that it does not display either the group name nor song title in plain English anywhere. Instead the legend “FAC 73 BLUE MONDAY AND THE BEACH NEW ORDER” is represented in code by a series of coloured blocks. The key enabling this to be deciphered was printed on the back sleeve of the album, Power, Corruption & Lies. “Blue Monday” is one of several New Order releases from this time period to employ the colour code. The sleeve’s spine simply reads “FAC SEVENTY THREE”.

I love stuff like that!
