There is an interesting, and amusing, meme (some people say it is a classic dating back to this in january 2008) going around on facebook which I wanted to share with you.
But first, the result. This is the new album from my imaginary band called ‘Mourning Dove’. Cool huh?
Want your own band and album?
Follow the instructions:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random ). The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 – Go to quotationspage.com and hit random ( http://quotationspage.com/random.php3 ). The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” (http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days ). Third picture no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use photoshop or similar (picnik.com is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.
5 – Post it with this text in the “caption” and TAG the friends you want to join in.
As far as I can tell the (recent) meme was started by Igor Teeuwen, a Dutch designer.
Here is my album post on Facebook. So go ahead, find out what your bands name is and do post the images in the comments here so we can all enjoy them.
