I copied this creative meme from Marc. Of course, the last time I did a meme that Marc precipitated, some people thought that I had changed my name to Lurleen and moved to Qatar. So let me make it perfectly clear–I have not recorded an album; although, I wouldn’t mind doing so. I do most of my singing in the shower. However, the instructions for the meme are:
1. The first article title on the Wikipedia Random Articles page is the name of your band. (Click on “Random Articles” in the left column)
2. The last four words of the very last quotation on the Random Quotations page is the title of your album. Just click on the link that reads, “random quotes.”
3. Any appropriate picture in Flickr’s Creative Commons licensed photos will be your album cover.
4. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together, and post the result. C’mon budding cover art designers – give it a try!
I went to Wikipedia and selected “Random Articles” and the article that popped up was entitled Lola. I’m not kidding; it was the one that popped up. In this case, Lola references the title of a 1961 French film starring Anouk Aimee as the title character. So the name of my band is LOLA.
On the “Random Quotations” page, I picked up the last four words of a quote by George Bernard Shaw, “only wasted my time.”
The photos I got at Flickr and played around with them until I got the effect that I wanted.
I also decided that the album contained a song with the same title as the album, so I wrote a few lyrics for it. Yeah, I know, I get carried away, but blame it on Marc; he’s quite inspirational. Besides, he wrote lyrics for our blogami Paul’s album.
Only Wasted My Time
I was a fool to want you,
Such a fool to care,
What you did to my heart was a crime.
A wiser woman
Would have known,
Recognized the signs,
Loving you, only wasted my time.
