Oh lord. Some of these are so dorky, it cracks me up! I used to play the piano all the time in school and church talent shows. Then one day my nerves got the best of me, and I’ve hated it ever since. (Playing in public, not playing the piano. Still love that.) Not sure what happened.

Friday Fidgeting

While I am trying to get reconnected with work, I figured I would play this little game.

1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random… Read More”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to “Random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
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”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 – Use photoshop or similar to put it all together

Hmmm…I smell a Grammy in my future!
