Life is horribly crazy at the moment. I’ve been grading exams all week and am just finally getting around to writing the three papers that I have due over the next few days. On top of it all, I was asked just a couple of days ago if I would speak at church tomorrow. Why not, right?
It seems the more you have to do, the harder it is to get going or keep focused. I don’t have time to write this post, which is probably why I’m writing it. And not having time to read other blogs is precisely how I came across this fun little meme. All in all, memes are the easiest posts to “write,” so I guess I’m not being completely negligent here. Anyway, this one was kind of fun. I got it from VH1’s entertainment blog, Best Week Ever, who claims to have gotten it from Facebook. By following a few simple rules, you end up “designing” an album cover—an album cover for a non-existent album of a non-existent band, of course, but that’s the fun of it.
Here’s the album cover I ended up creating. Below it are the instructions for creating your own. Have fun!
1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “Random Article” or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to "Random quotations" or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 The last four or five words of the very last quote of 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 Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 - Use Photoshop/MS Paint or similar to put it all together.
5- Post it to your blog or what have you.
