Kate had a fun game on her blog yesterday, in which you make your band's album cover!
I couldn't be more in love with my result than I already am. Here's how you play along...
1. Go to wikipedia. Hit 'random'
or click: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random Wikipedia article you get is your band name.
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 album.
3. Go to Flickr and click on 'explore the last seven days'
or click: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
4. Use Photoshop (or something like picnik.com) to put it all together.
And what I came up with...
That really looks like a real album cover. You'd buy my album, right? I was thinking the other day, what was the first CD I bought for myself? I couldn't remember for the longest time and then it came to me. Someone had given me money, possibly for a birthday and I went to the mall and bought two CDs at once. I must have been 12 because both albums came out in 1994. I remember my dad being skeptical as I said I wanted these two. He said 'you're sure, these two?' and I had to defend my choices.
Boyz II Men's album II and All-4-One's self-titled album.
My album cover totally looks better than these two. Oh god, I remember sitting at home and taping 'I Swear' and 'I'll Make Love To You' off the radio whenever the songs came on and swooning. I've always been a little overemotional. Take a walk down memory lane with me...
So, spill it.
What was the first CD you bought? Or tape or record, for you oldies out there.
