Hey, I was just wondering if anyone had a reasonably clear version of the slim pickens album art - you know, the one with the girl riding the bomb, preferably without the lyrics (I want to use it as my computer background), but I'm not especially bothered if it does have the lyrics one. I've had a google but to no avail, and I don't own a scanner - mainly because everytime i've had a scanner it's been built into a printer, which have a habit of breaking and driving me nuts. Thanks to anyone who can help :)

It's a bit weird how the illustration has a girl riding the bomb, when the Slim Pickens in the lyrics, is a guy... lol

Not just in the lyrics, he was a real person-actor (Louis Burton Lindley, Jr).

No problem :) here he is riding the bomb (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlSQAZEp3PA). I know it thanks to The Simpsons, in one episode (5x11) Homer rides the bomb on beatnicks... Good old Simpsons.

So that's what inspired the line "Are you really gonna take it like that? Riding on a missile with the cowboy hat"! lol xD What an awesome scene, thanks again! :)

I enjoyed, not edited much, but works! Thanks for spreading this reference.

Yeah yeah kids, this is not just Dexter's awesome imagination, that's from the real film!

I was wondering if beginning of tonight I do, when they sing johnny comes marching home is also inspired by dr. strangelove. It's quite well known, but it appears also there. If so, well, that'd be cool. I like when things I like are connected like in slim pickens case.
