In between blog posts I’ve been spending most of my January re-tidying my apartment, which has given me the opportunity to notice things a little more (you never realize all the fun stuff you have laying around until you have to swipe it with a dust rag).

In between cleaning missions, I’d plop down on my couch and stare at the wall, which is decorated with a framed art-print of a tree my friend Troy gave me for being a wingman in his wedding last year (A Modern Twist, jp thrity-three).
After staring at the tree all month it then occurred to me I had just pulled an old Sam Roberts CD (We Were Born In A Flame) out of the back of a shelf, which had a similar looking tree on its album cover.
I then realized Donnie Iris and The Cruisers’ latest album, Ellwood City, also features a big ‘ol tree (excuse me for my lack of tree knowledge) in its album artwork. I also recall Jack Johnson’s In Between Dreams featuring a large tree on the front of its album cover.

Long story short, I can’t get my cleaning done, cause I’m racking my brain trying to figure how many more album covers are sportin’ a large tree on front. If you can help me out, I, and my dusty apartment would be obliged.
