Strike Up the Band
I did this meme a few years ago, but Rebecca axed that I resurrect it again. I'm ok with that. You know me - anything for a post. And I now have a few more regular readers than I did back in March 2009....which oddly doesn't seem that long ago when you "say" it out loud.
Anyway, it is a meme / post to create album cover art, if you were in a band. Hell, some of you guys might be in a band. Most of us are not.
The last time I did this, I don't even remember what my band was called or what the cover are looked like anymore. Bummer. I lost all that when my host/server "updated" me and lost all my images. I don't think it is one I can ever get back - unless someone somehow miraculously did the meme and has it somewhere. I do know the album title was called Tortures the Living.
I never truly tag anyone for these memes - as I don't want them to feel obligated, or the reality is, I'd feel worse if they dismiss me because I did tag them. It's just easier if anyone who wants to participate does it on their own accord.
I'd be happy to have a follow-up post in a week or so, where I link or post everyone's album art in one entry. Naturally, you'd have to tell me you have created one. I'll post them even if you don't have a blog and want to send me your image. I can do that. .....and it gives me another entry. YES! SCORE!!!
Follow the directions below and find out...Here are the rules:
1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random”or click here.
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations"or click here.
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 here.
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.
I don't have Ye Olde Photoshoppe, so I used whatever editor was built into my MacAir.
I admit to cheating just a tad, as my first Wiki random search was indeed already a recording artist. I just did not want to be "Shania Twain". One of those is enough - don't you agree?
Anyhoo.....here is mine, amended as it may be:
