  • The sample in "Skinning Pit" (“Every once in a while I'd have to take a beating. But by then, I didn’t care. The way I saw it, everybody takes a beating sometime”) is taken from the 1990 movie Goodfellas and is spoken by actor Ray Liotta.
  • The sample in "Potato Junkie" (“Don’t you ever feel attracted to the girls you photograph…”) is often cited as having come from the 1978 movie Pretty Baby, being spoken by actress Brooke Shields and actor Keith Carradine, but it is actually from the 1981 Ozploitation film Centrespread.
  • Album artwork was created by George Henry Smyth.[6]
