The Last Sleeveface Challenge
Okay, I admit that I only heard about sleevefacing like a couple of months ago. If you don’t know, and I think that’s a small club by now, Sleevefacing is a current craze flourishing on Myspace (and Facebook etc) wherein one holds the 12 x 12 inch cardboard vinyl album sleeve over their head or face, creating some often fascinating results.

The Sleeveface site gives the following official definition: One or more persons obscuring or augmenting any part of their body or bodies with record sleeve(s) causing an illusion
According to an article on BBC News website, the craze began in a bar in Cardiff, when John Rostron, a Welsh club DJ with a big vinyl collection, started holding up the cardboard sleeves as he rocked da house and the thing caught on with a lot of people who started posting their Sleeveface shots up on YouTube and Facebook(etc).
That’s me with the Rykodisc Elvis Costello Box Set.
Now the fun part, the first and LAST SLEEVEFACE CHALLENGE!
Please send your own Sleevefacings to my email address pulmyears [at] gmail [dot] com and I’ll post some of the less rude or vulgar ones here in a future posting.
