Thích Quảng Đức was protesting the persecution of Buddhism by South Vietnam's Ngô Đ́nh Diệm administration. Photos of his self-immolation were circulated widely across the world and brought world attention to the policies of the Diem regime. Malcolm Browne won a Pulitzer Prize for his iconic photo of the burning, while David Halberstam's written account achieved the same feat. The act increased international pressure on Diem and led him to announce some reforms with the intention of mollifying Buddhist opinion. However, the delayed implementation of the reforms saw the situation deteriorate. The heart of Thich Quang Duc remained intact after his cremation, leading Buddhists to revere him as a bodhisattva. With protests continuing, the Special Forces loyal to Diem's brother Ngo Dinh Nhu launched nationwide raids on Buddhist pagodas, inflicting widespread damage and killing, in addition to seizing the holy heart. Several more Buddhist monks followed the lead of Thich Quang Duc and eventually, an ARVN coup toppled and killed Diem in November. The self-immolation is widely seen as the turning point of the Buddhist crisis which led to the change in regime.



you really have to admire that man's commitment, as insane as it was.

Out of the hundreds of albums I have, I like Porcupine Tree's "Fear of a Blank Planet" album art most of all. I'm not exactly sure why, but whilst I listen to the songs on my iPod, I can't help but stare at this album art. It's chilling I guess you could say.

I may be mistaken, but I think this album featured Steve Vai together with Zappa. Which is why the ship and the witches hat form a Z and an upside down V.

Personally I like most of the 4AD label stuff - specially The Pixies and The Breeders covers. Like these two.

I like a lot of phish's album covers. Just like youenjoyyourself's example of story of the ghost. I also like rift and slip, stitch, and pass.

Though Vai worked on the album him being in it had nothing to do with the doodle, someone else had drawn that and Zappa liked it because it looked like a Z and an A (notice how the As on the cover are Triangles)

I don't have a picture unfortunately, but my pick would be Korn's Take a Look in the Mirror cover art. It's cool looking and has a bit of a dark, gothic feel. Very cool in my opinion.

How about Sugar Ray's "Lemonade and Brownies" featuring the sublimely proportioned Nicole Eggert.
