Let’s Make a Band!

by

It’s the weekend. You have time for this.

The recipe was found here, via here, via here, sort of.

Let’s Make a Band!

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page 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. (You might have to click new random quotes at the bottom)

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

You then take the pic and add your band name and the album title to it, then post your pic.

Okay. Here’s what I got, and it looks just like all the other
Ricki Lee Jones-meets-Cyndi Lauper bluegrass mashups populating the discount racks next to the records of many other female artists whose first names end in “i.”

Well, that was a fun fifteen minutes, but I was hoping my album would come out more like one of these classics:

Yep, she’s hot, even without “Ivy Pete and his Limbomaniacs” but with the threat of instant depilatory immolation. Dump the dweeb, doll, and take a ride with ElectroGlide in my V-8 sled of love.

Four musical women, preggo with the children of other spouses? This one bothers me. A lot.

Paul Taubman sold more albums that he could count on one hand, but unfortunately he was knocked off the bottom of the charts within minutes after the first release by Ivy Pete. What’s amazing is that Taubman wasn’t a pianist, but played a two-note pre-colombian ocarina in rooms with plenty of standing room only.

And what is the worst album in Bunk’s collection? It is not only the worst, it’s one of my favorites:

Recorded in 1975, Hollerin’ features the unforgettable Leonard Emanuel and others, live at Spivey’s Corner North Carolina. (Hear clips here or here.) The double record set came in very handy back when Bunk was still slumming around in apartments. If the neighbors were making too much noise, I’d just slap side one on the turntable, crank it up, and laugh and laugh and laugh. Lucky you, it’s now available on CD, and well worth the bucks for the entertainment. Try it on your loud neighbors. Believe me, everyone shuts up when they hear it. This works.

    sarah–

    I checked your photo links and got nowhere, so I deleted them from your comment.

    And just so you don’t feel bad, I posted a new Babe Magnet for you to drool over while I finish the work on the last three you ordered. Babe Magnet Pickup is on its way, too. Total class, just the way you like it.
