I saw this over at Robin’s Blog “Cinnamon & Honey

There’s a fun meme floating around Facebook called “Make Your Own Album Cover.” My very own album? Of course I had to give this one a try! Here’s how it works:

1. Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random.” The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2. Go to Random Quotations. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3. Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days.” The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4. Use PhotoShop or a similar program to put it all together.

Here’s my album cover:

I thought it turned out pretty cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

For those who are curious, my band name, Tahpanhes (also transliterated Tahapanes or Tehaphnehes; known by the Ancient Greeks as Daphnae, now Tell Defenneh) was a city in Ancient Egypt. It was located on Lake Manzala on the Tanitic branch of the Nile, about 16 miles from Pelusium. The site is now on the Suez Canal.

The Album Title is taken from this quote:

“Because you are in control of your life. Don’t ever forget that. You are what you are because of the conscious and subconscious choices you have made.” – Barbara Hall, A Summons to New Orleans, 2000

Special thanks to “Solarina’s photostream” for use of her image, “Oh-“.

Give it a try! Be sure to come back and let me know how yours turned out… ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m going to be a little scarce this morning, I have a bunch of web updates to do and hopefully will be able to finagle the Princess Nagger into going grocery shopping with me before it gets late… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll be back late this afternoon/early evening to get caught up on replying to comments and stopping by your blogs for a visit! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Love love love when I am first! Happy Saturday, this meme sounds fun, I’ll have to give it a try!

  2. Your album cover looks like the real thing! And I was wondering what Tahpanhes meant. What a fun meme!

  3. That is really cool. I may have to ‘borrow’ this idea. Thanks for sharing.

    (stopping by from Mom Bloggers w/Technorati)

  4. Wow that worked out pretty dang well! You should start writing your album now! I will accompany, on the spoons, if you want me to!!!

    I’ll go try this! looks like fun!

  5. That is really cool! I love how it came out. I might have to do that. Enjoy your time away from the computer. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. I love all of the great designs you guys have created with this concept. I have started a new FaceBook group, soon to be it’s own website named http://www.randomcddesignproject.com membership is free and it’s going to be the place for the world to see all of these designs from this unique social experiment.

  7. So cool! I’m doing this for my post on Monday! I love the ones I’ve seen — some of them really look like real album covers. Yours is one of the best I think — I think a lot of men would buy this album without listening to it! And I love that you put in the quote source and explained the bad name — I didn’t think to do that but I did make up my own review of the album. It was so fun!

    thanks for visiting the other day. I totally appreciate it!

  8. That meme is so cool. I love the way your album cover came out. Interesting name for an album too!
