... as opposed to Dead-Heads. As in, the people who followed the Grateful Dead all over the US on their never-ending tour? Sheesh, nobody gets my humor...

See, picked this up off Avitable's site. Pretty fun. Just follow these simple directions to come up with your own imaginary band's first album cover and title.

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Now take your pic, add the band name and title to it, then post it.
Now anyone can be a rock star.

Here's mine:

And this goes along beautifully with what's going on tonight. Tonight (as in Sunday, January 20th) is Pointless Drivel live on Blog Talk Radio and tonight is Fab's Big Honking Special Duet Show! There are 12 of us hapless lady-blogger participants, singing duets with Fab himself. My song? Yeah, it's Meat Loaf's Paradise By The Dashboard Light, of course. Shuh. Like I'd sing duet to anything else with anyone else. Unless it happened to be Mr. Loaf himself. Then, I'd be on stage, with my wet, freshly pee'd-in pants, salivating while attempting to sing this song. So, stop by, check it out, and enjoy this special 90-minute show, starting at 6:30PM, EST, right here! Woo hoo!

My album would be called "Finger lickin' good" and feature a bucket of KFC chicken on the cover.

And maybe some women in bikini's just to get the kids to buy the album.

Did you, um...pee your pants while recording it for me?

And if so...could you send them to me?

Dad - You do have this reeeeaaaaally weird fried chicken obsession. I think maybe there's a 12-step program for that.

Fab - No pee, just sweat. Want me to wring out the shirt for ya?

Avitable said...

I will try to listen to the show tonight. I can't promise it, but I'll try.

Grateful Dead - now you have my FULL attention!! Since I live in Australia, does that make me a Eucalyptus-Head?!!!!

I like Creative Dad's suggestion too!!

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Avitable - Promise, shomise. Just do it, man!

David - Thanks for reading! All the way from Australia. Wow, I'm speechless! And, yes, you are a Eucalyptus-Head, if you so wish.

Ooooh, I love the album idea.

Here's what mine ended up being:

Group name: Hurka
Album title: The Joke He Resents
Picture: Some freaky sculpture thingy with weeds in front of it.

I like it! I'll do a blog post about it sometime in the next couple days...

And the duet show was FUN!
Gotta love Meatloaf. :)
And Fab.

Because I love how your album cover turned out, I had to try it out myself. You have to check my blog to find out, though it makes me think of a naughty, all-girl punk band... :)
