Storm Large (http://www.stormlarge.com/) is officially my favorite contestant from Rockstar: Supernova (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_Star:_Supernova), and her new album, Ladylike, Side One (http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?playListId=258308956), is my favorite recent music purchase (tap on the iPod Nano icon above to see others).

Anyway. I found more photos shot for the album by Laura Domela (http://www.domela.com/) and thought I'd assign each song its own art. Looks good on my pod and in the iTunes Now Playing screen, but iTunes Cover Flow only shows the art assigned to the first track, presumably because this should be the album art.

But given the current ability to download songs regardless of whether you get the album and organize them however we want, it occurs to me that the concept of album art might need an update. I mean, how useful is it to display album art when I've never seen the album? Doesn't it make sense for each song to have its own art associated with it by default?

I think I'll experiment with this some more and see how far it can go. Certainly I'd like to customize my Storm Large collection further, maybe add some ink to the mix.
