Let’s see…work on my blog, or accept Olga, the Traveling Bra’s challenge to create my very own album cover? That’s a no brainer. Tah-dahhhhhh….
Okay, so Juan Villafuerte doesn’t exactly sound like a band, but I suppose it could be. You know, like Jethro Tull. And the title of the album (do they still call them that?) is from the end of a quotation from “Song of Myself” by Walt Whitman:
“Do I contradict myself?
Very well then, I contradict myself,
(I am very large, I contain multitudes.)”
Hmmm…Whitman perplexes me sometimes. Deep fellow.
But I believe the album cover came out quite interestingly, for many reasons.
So Olga says I need to pass this along, and you do know how completely horrid I am at that particular task, right? So give it a shot. It’s fun. Here are directions if you’re completely bored and in need of a diversion:
The Band Meme (who thinks of these things?)
First, go to…
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.
Next, go to…
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
Then, go to…
…to choose a photo for your album cover. The third photo, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. (Hmmm…guess it’s your choice on whether you choose vertically or horizontally, and good luck that you don’t get what I got on my first go ’round. The photo was great, but upon further investigation, it led to quite the collection of photos that were of things quite scantilly clad…and shaved. Ahem. So I refreshed the selection to get the photo you see on my album cover. Good luck!)
Finally, when you’re done with all of that, use your graphics program of choice to throw them together and make your band’s album cover. And if you actually do all of this because you have no valid reason to put it off like doing the dishes, cleaning toilets, or sifting the sand in the cat box, then let me know so I can see if yours is better than mine. Feh. Go ahead. Try.
And you do know that tonight is the night the MoH has been waiting for since last Spring, right? It’s finally here. AMERICAN IDOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You do understand it helps us survive tax season. Something has to.
But if you think we should be doing something more to your own liking because you choose not to watch it, please. By all means, blather on in the comments section.
Go ahead. Let it rip.
