My Debut Album
This comes from a meme that I read about on Rol's blog, which I read pretty regularly. Through a few steps of random choices, you end up with what would be your band name, album title and album cover art. Rol's turned out pretty decent and viable - mine...well, you can see for yourself above. Apparently, you're looking at the debut album, entitled An Exceptionally Good Liar, by a new band, Ali Murad Davudi, named after an Iranian professor who is presumed the probable victim of state execution. I'd like to think it would be a highly political album. Although, there are many bands out there that would have been better off following this formula. Should you still want to participate, follow the directions below.
What would your own album look like if you were in a band? Follow the directions below and find out...
Here are the rules:
1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” 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 Quotations Page and select "random quotations"
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
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 http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.
Here are a couple of semi-appropriate tracks (though not by Ali Murad Davudi). Feel free to let me know what your debut album would be.
Everything is Weird - Daisy Chainsaw
Formed a Band - Art Brut
