The Band Meme

I've been tagged by Mimi, the Queen of the Memes. Having been so tagged, I, a lowly peasant in the Meme Queendom, am powerless to do anything but comply. Here's the gig:

The Band Meme

You are about to have your own band's CD cover. Follow these directions to the letter. My tagee list is at the bottom of this post. It's fun and requires no thought at all. Go to......

  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
    The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

  2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
    The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

  3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
    The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

  4. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together, and post the result as a comment in this post. Also, pass it along on your own blog, because it’s more amusing that way.


Using this magic formula, I came up with this:



Hmmm. . . I'm thinking it's a bluegrass sound with politically-inspired lyrics!

So as to pass along the fun, I tag the following bloggers (although Mimi seems to have tagged a large portion of the blogging universe already):

In contest news, Yarnhore has contacted me and it turns out she lives in the Portland Metro area. So not only do I get to deliver some lovely Portland crafted hand-dyed yarn to her, but I get to meet another Portland knitter, too! Whee!

Oh, and a friend asked me how many people had commented on the contest post. In one of those mysteries of the universe, 52 people responded to the post for my contest to celebrate my. . . 52nd birthday! Don't you just love when the universe gives you symmetry?

My CD came up as a band called "1987 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup Final" and an album called Take Care of Themselves.

But the picture was haunting!

My latest release is "You Have For Sure" by "Locally Finite Measure."

You can see the album cover on my blog. :-)

That is hysterical. Missiles and Misguided Men. OH MY. I love it!
I'm collecting these and making a post of them tomorrow. Stay tuned.

This is a riot. Thanks for doing it.

just band-hopping and I find that you are a knitter! My congregation has a shawl ministry...I am beginning my first shawl next week on retreat.

I'm doing something kinda crazy and doing some band-hopping *oh joy* It's also nice that I get to make a little linky love too while I'm at it. There is hope, after all, that my technorati will reach 500 before 2020.

I love yours, btw - turned out neat...not too many of them did *huggies* Have a gr8 weekend and stop by if ya like. Mine's posted here: The Band Meme. *smoochies* (a/k/a Rhonda)
