I'm a total (pretend) rock star

Tuesday~July 7th, 2009

Things have been so serious around here lately. I need to lighten up a bit. So I became a (pretend) rock star! Here's my first (pretend) album:

Look what I made! (OK, it's not a real MUSIC album, it's a made up one, but it's so much fun to pretend.) I guess this has been making it's way around facebook, but I saw it on my friend Motherboard's blog and had to do it because I'm very easily distracted from what I should be doing so creative. It's one of those random search things, like shuffling your ipod and having the songs answer your questions...only it's different than that. (The directions are below, if you want to give it a try.)

Because I'm sure you can't really see it, my band name is Diaspora Minister of Israel. That just totally cracks me up. And the album is titled Scandal is Gossip Made Tedious (ooooh, profound!)

And the girl on the cover? I KNOW, it's uncanny! We have the same exact hair!!!

(Everything in italics below was stolen straight from Motherboard's blog Crazyland)

If you want to make one too, here are the instructions:


1. Go to wikipedia and hit random. The first article that comes up is the name of your band.
2. Go to random quotations and scroll to the very last quote. The last 4-5 words are going to be the name of your album.
3. Go to flickr, and hit explore last 7 days. The 3rd picture is your Album cover.
4. Photoshop, picassa or whatever other photo altering tool you have and put the band name and name of album on the photo (I used picassa because, even though I have photoshop its beyond me how to use it...). It's fun. I promise. (and I'll add here that I used picnik) I figure if you don't know how to put the text on the picture, you can always just type in your band name and album title below the picture. Just a thought.

I've just inspired myself. I think I'll go make another album...


Yup, I did it again. Can't stop...


I actually quite like this one: most people never listen by Bentley Hampshire.


Okay! I'll stop after this one...maybe...


the truth is putting on its shoes by Golf California

I think I've found my calling...

OK, this is the LAST ONE!!! I've got to get going. I'm off to listen to some REAL music by my talented friend Jeff James.




Peace out.

Can't wait to see what my band is called. Fun!

Christy said...

Oh how fun - I want to do this now! And I just read that article you published on Associated Content - it was fantastic!

I would just like to remind you that I also did a post of music albums, and you said that you actually showed your husband, and he didn't roll his eyes. Score one for me.

Jillene said...

Actually--I think that you are a REAL Rockstar!!

I love that I am not the only person who gets really infatuated with really "creative" stuff. :)

Oh - and for the record, I used Picasa, heard and saw alot of awesome stuff about photo shop, bought photo shop, still use Picasa - because dang, really? Picasa is so much more user friendly than photo shop. Or maybe I am just a little bit photo shop challenged.

Lara said...

Okay. You've sold me. I've seen it around a bit, but I'm totally going to take a break from moving prep and make myself an album.

Love both of yours. AWESOME.

L.T. Elliot said...

That's uncanny. I was JUST thinking about your ipod post! How wild is that?

Erin said...

This is a fun activity. What a rockstar you are!

Kimberly said...

Those are seriously spiffy looking albums - love the names!

Motherboard said...

Dang! Yours are WAY better than mine. Now I'm going to have to go and make more.

I really like them all. They are UBER creative!

I saw something like this a long time ago, like a year ago, and saved it as a draft for a future post and never published it!
