The Record Album Meme

Nobody has tagged me for this and I shan't tag anyone else, but I did find this one more fun than many of the memes running around out there. Hat tip to my friend Michelle over at Kill 9 Studios as hers was the first I saw. As with all of these things, there are "rules".

1 - Go to Wikipedia’s “random” page:

The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page’s "random quotations":

The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click “explore last seven days”

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
It's nice to credit the photo source, but I lost the URL. So, whoever you are, thanks for the excellent picture!

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it together.

5 - Post your photo to your FB page with this text in the "caption" or "comment" and tag friends you’d like to join in.

Here's my album:
Band: Star Vampire
Album: Sell Body Parts for Money

I think my band is a cross between The Cure and Depeche Mode.

And just in case you are curious, here is the full quote:
"The tooth fairy teaches children that they can sell body parts for money." -David Richerby

Succumbing to the Single Letter Meme

There are a number of internet memes running around on Facebook, and I have been tagged with several. I'm going to give in on this one and perhaps others. But for now, here is the single letter thingy. Like all of these, it has rules. I'm not tagging anyone, cuz I don't wanna. But if you feel like doing it, go ahead.

Rules: Copy to your own note, erase my answers, enter yours, and set your tags. Use the first letter of your name to answer each of the following questions. They have to be real. . .nothing made up! If the person before you had the same first initial, you must use different answers. You cannot use any word twice and you can't use your name for the boy/girl name question.

1. What is your name: Brian
2. A four Letter Word: Bold
3. A boy's Name: Benjamin Button
4. A girl's Name: Betty Boop
5. An occupation: Bartender
6. A color: Beige
7. Something you wear: Bandanas
8. A food: Banana Bread
9. Something found in the bathroom: Bathtub
10. A place: Bolivia
11. A reason for being late: Broke down
12. Something you shout: Banzai!
13. A movie title: Buckaroo Banzai
14. Something you drink: Bosco
15. A musical group: Blues Traveler
16. An animal: Bison
17. A street name: Bear Valley Parkway

Yet Another Blog

I know. Just with the internet needs, right? And why would I start another one when I am doing such a poor job of keeping this one up? Excellent question. Don't know the answer. I'm probably just easily distracted by shiny...oooh! A fire engine! What was I saying? Oh, yes. New blog. My friend Kitten Herder wanted to start a blog to practice fiction writing, so she started Handing Over the Kayboard and asked me to be one of the administrators.

The idea is not a new one. One of us will post the opening to a story. Anyone can add to the story through the comments. The idea is to build the story in a constructive way. Don't throw away or undo anyone else's work. We may also start a commentary thread for each story as they go. That will be the place for constructive feedback. So far, only she and I have written anything. I'd love to have others join in.
