LIFE has an amazing gallery of previously unreleased pictures taken at a Nevada A-Bomb test site in 1955. There is a cold beauty in these shots and an eerie atmosphere that make them emblematic of the Cold War era.

Bandwiches: if bands were sandwiches

cool

If bands were sandwiches, what would they look/taste like? Here’s a long list right in time for dinner.

I quite liked those ones:

Black Sabbath: Ham, stilton, LSD mustard, milled wheat bread.

Sex Pistols: Deep-fried Frank Sinatra LP, Russian mustard, spackle, tacks, stale rye bread.

Depeche Mode: Chicken breast, Swiss cheese, grilled suede, fried onions, mascara aioli, seeded baguette.

Pink Floyd: Amethyst-rubbed pork, asparagus jelly, moon-dried tomatoes, pumpernickel.

The Pogues: Gin-fed lamb, whiskey-marinated turkey, beer-braised pork shoulder, mustard, soda bread.

Depending on your musical tastes, you may not be hungry after reading on McSweeney’s Internet Tendency: Bandwiches. via kottke
