Album Cover Meme


Sorry. Don't have much time today, so I'm just going to show you my album cover.

This is a popular meme out there right now, and when looking at other people's album covers I thought it would be fun to do one of my own. I set out and got my random "elements" from which to make a really cool album cover... and I got the most boring set of words and image this world has ever seen. Maybe I'll do another one in the future, which will hopefully turn out a lot more interesting than this one ;)

This is how it's done:

Go to Wikipedia - The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

Click Random Quotes The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

Visit Flickr- The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together, and post the result.

Have a good day!

I thought for a second you were using your real name there or something. LOL

I don't have a graphics program, sadly. So you'll just have to imagine mine.

Group Name: One Wild Oat
Album Name: Illusion Lunchtime Doubly So

Awww that's not so bad. I have to be honest, when I first came over and saw the worm, I giggled a little.

But it's not too bad!!! :)

Dana said...

Eat the worm!

Karen said...

I put my album up too. I think yours is cooler.

R.E.H. said...

Jay: Nah. But getting a name like that... initially I thought I'd be making a Country album cover - but that picture... I don't know what kind of music is being played!

~Angela~: See! Everyone gets cooler stuff to work with than me!

Aunt Jackie: I was so tempted to get another picture when that one showed up at the number 3 spot. But, I like to play fair... so.

Dana: Eeww!

Karen: Nah! Yours was much cooler!

There's nothing boring about a catepillar turning into a butterfly.

It could be prophetic.

You just never know.

Now wait a second here...I do NOT want to name my band Randy Jackson!!!!

Jen said...

Awww. . . .you're like a butterfly coming out of it's cocoon. . . . sweet.

I think don't want to know mine.

Jo said...

Hey, you got a cute one! I'm guessing it's John Denver-ish music :P

Kell said...

It's kind of eerie how some of those separate elements go together. Cool meme.

Loving Annie said...

I think that was kind of cool, R.E.H.
You are feeling to me like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly with the rubicon heart story - coming into your own, and beautifully as you grow...

Ginni Dee said...

Love your album! I did one that I'll post tomorrow. I get sort of stingy with my posts since I joined Blog365 and I already posted today.

Your album turned out great.

Jay Cam said...

i'm not going to do the meme, but i got a cool result!

my band is called "make me lose control"

my title is "you mustn't lose it"

ironic!

my pic was a bunch of gingersnaps.
that was freakily awesome

odd facts said...

Band name: Mary Brydon
Album title: keeps the duldrums away
picture: a close-up of a pretty white flower

hmmmmmmmm...... Not bad.

odd facts said...

hehe. Did it again. This time my band is called: "List of Rocket Power Characters."

What's cooler than a butterfly in disguise?

*Toot Toot*

fiwa said...

Wow, I thought I commented earlier. I think it turned out great! Very Jackson Browne-ish. I played too - it was fun.

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

I'm all thumbs with Photoshop. I'm sitting out for this exercise.

Lakota Princess said...

Posted mine - got the coolest band name! Weird photo but that's okay.
I dressed it all up pretty in photoshop. ~jumping up and down in excitement~

Leighann said...

"may be some time" and you got a pic of a caterpillar which will eventually turn into a beautiful butterfly.... I think it's awesome!

g-man said...

I though it was pretty cool. the picture matches the title. :)

Samantha_K said...

My band name - The Miroir or Glasse of the Synneful Soul (that's awesome!)

Album title - You Want To Be

Cover art - Some guido looking greaseball with his arms around two trashy looking blondes.

It was great til the cover art, lol.

Casdok said...

Makes an interesting meme.

R.E.H. said...

Real Live Lesbian: Yeah, it's just that I wanted some cool heavy metal band name and a dark and mysterious cover, and I ended up with happy cheery bright and colorful ;)

Pookie Sixx: I understand what you're sayin' ;)

Jen: Oh, of course I wanna see yours... it's like the old sayin': I've shown you mine, now you show me yours. ;)

Jo: I thought it looked like some country album too - but the caterpillar didn't feel that country and western to me.

Kell: The more I've thought about it - I have realized that it kind of does fit together.

R.E.H. said...

Loving Annie: Thank You. That was flattering... kind of ;)

Ginni Dee: Oh, you're trying out for the Blog365 are you? There's just no way I could've done that. Good luck! I hope you can pull it off - anyone who pulls that off is deserving of a serious award!

Jay Cam: Aw... you shoulda put that one together for my viewing pleasure!

Odd Facts: Hey that was a really cool one. And I loved the name of the second band. Though it would've been even better if it had just been "Rocket Power". Yeah! I like that!

Butterfly Girl: I, for one, cannot think of anything!

R.E.H. said...

Fiwa: Jackson Browne? Hmm... yeah - it is kinda Jackson Browne-ish ;)

I'll have to check out yours!

Lightning Bug's Butt: No real skills needed for this one. You could whip it up in Paint if you wanted to.

Lakota Princess: I'll be right there to check you out... ehm... check it out.

Leighann: Yeah, I started to realize that afterward. It is sort of awesome, isn't it?

G-Man: It does. I just didn't see it at first ;)

R.E.H. said...

Samantha K: Oooh... you're gonna do it aren't you? I think the picture sounds awesome too. "You want to be"... with these hot chicks, right?

Casdok: Yeah, it was. And, kind of fun to do as well.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

it doesnt have nekkid boobs but i like it anyway.

Anonymous said...

Pretty damn cool album cover!

Lakota Princess said...

Windrider and Mapi and Indy did covers as well - you'll have to check 'em out. We're seeing a spooky pattern emerge - fortune telling via album covers.

R.E.H. said...

Tequila Mockingbird: Despite your points reduction for cheating on the meme - you outscore mine. Nekkid boobies will go a long way on an album cover!

Preposterous Ponderings: Well, thank you. As I recall - so was yours!

Lakota Princess: Hmmm... so this is a fortune telling meme - I wish someone would've told me that ;)

Anonymous said...

LOL! Hope people upload more dark and mysterious photos to help the meme go on and on :)

R.E.H. said...

Joel: That would be sweet ;)

Brazlebridge said...

Too cool. It seemed so random until I tried it myself. Mine somehow made sense, as did yours! Even blogged about the route that brought me to your blog ... Good Blog. Thanks. fun.

R.E.H. said...

BrazleBridge: Welcome! Yeah, the Album Meme is really cool. I'll be right over to check out your site soon!
