My new album cover.


MY NEW ALBUM

While I am not much of a fan of the FaceBook memes--being an old, angry, curmudgeonly sort of guy--I did enjoy this one, forwarded to me by my pal Xian.

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit "random"
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random Wikipedia article that comes up is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations"
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very LAST quote on the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click on "explore the last seven days"
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
The third picture in the top row, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use PhotoShop or whatever to put it all together.

5 - Post it to FB with this text in the "caption" or "comment" and TAG the friends you want to join in.

The result of my efforts is posted above!

Wow. I'm always surprised how things like this float around. I first heard this over a year ago (someone even crated a page then to automatically generate the info: http://rbng.coldforged.org/). Then all of a sudden in the past week or two it finally exploded. Kinda like a really slow delay bomb.

Sclager totally sucks. They're just a bunch of sellouts now. I was totally into them when they were indie, but now that they're on a major label they suck. I remember seeing them @ the 8x10, and they totally rocked, they even did a cover of "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" and they tore it up. But now they're just cashing in and playing the hits for all the lemmings out there.

FUCK SCHLAGER!!

I love this meme so much.
Somehow the results I'm getting sound quite plausible.
I'm hoping to get some nonsense next.

I was glad to finally find a crazy combination, but now that I look at the finished result, it does look like a sort of plausible hardcore album. This meme is magic.

And the track list, based on the rule I heard about which is basically "google the name of your band and album. go to the third page. select the song titles out of the text of the 10 results on that page":
1. LOL, Soulja
2. Army - Small Wars Council
3. A Cross Dressing Pakistani Television Presenter
4. Margate FC, What More Could You Want?
5. MELBOURNE, Jan 18
6. The Only Self Goal
7. Match :-(
8. They Only Really Have One (Sometimes 2)
9. And Also a Hundred
10. Lahore Unit

Naming our band after another band's song was kind of lame, but I like the title of our first album.

Hmmm. I think I'll have to break the rules on this one....the first Wiki article was "List of Square Enix Compilation Albums". While I'm currently enjoying Chrono Trigger on my DS, that's just a really dumb name.

Hey Jeff, since you're so into music would you care to share with us in a blog post some words on your favourite video game soundtracks? Among my faves are Doom, Star Control 2, The Longest Journey, and The 7th Guest.

Budo said...

I used to work at a classic Rock station here in NY, and we used to get these demo albums from these no-name bands daily. They all thought we would drop the over-analyzed, field-tested, and pre-programmed playlist in place of their "never heard of your crap" B-music. These look and sound exactly like every single one of those albums.

Fred said...

Holy crap, did I get lucky, 3 times!!!

That worked too well.
Band: 1957 World Figure Skating Championships

Album: things we haven't been taught.

This band will be awesome.

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.
He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to fly to Vancouver to join her. It was the happiest time of their lives! nike discount shoes But their happy time was short-lived. Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver,cheap puma shoes he received a call from her father. She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a coma.
The guy was devastated, as it was a complete loss. Why did fate played such cruel games with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.
The moral of this story is :
Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
