We know, we know. Freaky, huh? That ain't an April Fool's joke either - it's real. When a friend emailed us that picture Wednesday, Rocks Off knew we had to share it with you, but it took a while for us to come up with the proper musical context. Although that... thing... is actually a jacked-up member of the crawfish family some deep-sea drillers hoisted up from the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, it looks pretty alien to us. So we poked around for a while and found some similarly disturbing sci-fi-themed album covers. Just the thing for first thing in the morning, right?
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
