Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing
[meme] Album cover meme 
2008.01.08 05:16 pm
"lizzielizzie posted that," frozencapybara said, "and I thought, 'this meme is made for kviri.'"

Uh, yeah, given that by the time she said that, I'd already made five of them. :} So, as a sort of thematic followup to the meme I posted last month...

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

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

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

04. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together.

In the order in which I did them:

This, to me, says "Hi, I'm a modern rock band whose sound is pretty much indistinguishable from the other bands that are popular this month." If they're lucky, one of their songs will peak at #16, and they'll never be heard from again. Look for this in the bargain bin of your local HMV next month!

On the other hand, maybe that career path isn't so bad, compared to that of good old FIR. They paid to press this CD themselves, and got it stocked in all of the local Newbury Comics stores... which, as far as anyone can tell, have only sold the five copies purchased by the bands' four roommates and that one creepy dude who stands in the back at all their shows.

Next up on our program is this disc by local coffeeshop comedy-folkie John Wyre. He's not going to get famous, either, but at least he's getting a free meal every week or so. The album title is all about irony -- he's 5'4", wiry, and going bald.

We never seem to run out of painfully artsy bands fresh out of the Berklee College of Music, do we? Wooler Water draws well at shows, but mostly only because their electric viola player is a smokin' hot chick.

Which brings us to my fifth, and favorite, entry...

...or am I bluffing, and this is an actual album whose cover art I pulled off of CDBaby? (I mean, seriously. Tell me you haven't seen this cover before.)

Have I told you lately how awesome you are?

Unrelated, but your e-mail address is on my other computer.

So did you ever get Guitar Hero or what? Interested parties are interested.
