Will I win a Grammy?

February 26th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Borrowing Rol”s concept from his Sunset Over Slawit blog (via the Facebook tagging craze): Make up your own debut CD using the following steps:

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.

I cheated a little, because I was not going to call my band Meanings Of Minor Planet Names: 188001″“189000. Instead I got a Sudanese town, a Woody Allen quote and lucked out on Flickr with a really nice photo (there were quite a few nice photos) by kumo36, and I was good to go.

The result:

    I don’t know, I think “Meanings Of Minor Planet Names: 188001–189000” would work pretty well. . . it sounds very indie. You would probbaly sell out shows like MAD in my city. :D

    That works really well.

    I tried it and it works (at least I think mine’s o.k.).

    Here’s mine:

    I got “1941 In Association Football” as my band name, and I went with it. My album is “where there is no river,” which I like very much.

    And I flipped the pic of the dude and his car 90 degrees, if that’s cheating. I will post the results at my blog (already on Facebook) very quickly.

    This is actually quite fun.

    Dude,
    I found the whole idea so nice I actually started a blog about it.
    So come and join me at Heart on my sleeve.

    My band is Tandanor and our debut album is ‘Hope Your Guardian Genius’ – our sleeve art is a blurry and badly lit woman dancing, but maybe the sleeve’ll be revamped when we’re reissued on a major label in 18 months time after the shock late rise of our second single into the Top Twenty following its use in a Volkswagen ad x
