Find this art: Wait 1 hour to swim after eating, as a pulp cover

Help me find this piece of art done in pulp fiction cover style: a funny dramatization of what can go wrong if one ignores the age-old warning of "Don't swim for an hour after eating!" The art depicts a swimmer about to drown, and the words across the bottom read something like, He Only Waited 52 Minutes!! This might have been blogged about on Boing Boing, but I can't seem to find it in their archives. (And yes, it is an old wives' tale, swim away!)

iTunes cover art for 45s?

A while back, I came across a site that would generate artwork suitable for use in iTunes for those odd old singles you have on MP3. The artwork resembled an old 45 RPM record and I think could be customized with the track and artist name. Ring any bells? I can't find it in my bookmarks.

What is the meaning of jacket and sleeve art?

There's a lot of threads here about the meaning of art, and also a lot of great stuff about the beauty of CD cover art. What I want to know, is what it all means. Why do so many CDs featuring a white line art border, sort of like Victorian wall paper? Is there a way to tell what sort of music is inside by the picture outside? Is there a secret language of icons or symbology? Or is it just packaging? And if it is, is there some kind of marketing ploy to attract particular audiences? Does a sepia cover with a guitar and boots always mean country music? How am I being manipulated by album art? And where can I learn more about what it means, not just what it looks like? Thanks
