Succumbing to a meme

Posted: 14 January 2008, 20:46

Okay, so I normally hate those pesky memes that spread across the intertube (Garrett, I’m just saying it that way to push buttons), and lord knows it’s probably because I’m usually the last one in on it. Anyhoo, my friend Christine happened to post a fun little meme on her LiveJournal (people still use LJ?) that, to me at least, is kind of fun and not entirely stupid. What is it? Well, glad you asked:

Step One

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

Step Two

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

Step Three

www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ – The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. (And since we’re using other people’s photos, be kind and link back to their original image if you post yours)

The results? Well…

my fake album cover

(and the original is fefo codevilla’s lovely Untitled image from Flickr)

So… what did you get? Feel free to post them here or link to your meme post, if you feel the desire. As a reminder, the comments use Textile for formatting, so links look like the following:

"copy goes here":http://i.am.a/link

and show an image like so:

!http://image.url/goes/here.jpg!

Have fun!
