Cute, but any flash interfaces like this that are actually useful? If it laid out the cover art in a useful way this could actually catch on.

"metafilter" got me a "not found" message. The charm worn off once I went through all the cusswords.

If I could only find a way to stretch it to huge resolutions, this could make awesome band posters.

Sigh... if these talented people would strive to make useful interfaces. I hope someone else will take their ingenuity and make it relevant to user needs.

Rafter is right, it works great for bands with big discographies. This one in particular is a work of art.

I'm confused by all these claims of unusefulness. I didn't see it as something that was supposed to be useful -- just a neat arty thing. Am I missing something?

Neat in another way... let your little kids search for books.. type in "puppy" or some such word, let them explore....

and...ya know, chrismear is right, not everything has to be "useful"...
