Monday Morning Wake Up-

Here's my contribution to that interesting album-cover meme that's been going around. I first saw it on Prepo's blog. The rules are simple-

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.
3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4. Use a graphics program to create your cover.


Baby, it's cold outside! Actually it's not as bad as we thought it would be- it's a balmy 8 degrees above zero as I type. Where's Global Warming when we really need it? Lots of interesting stuff in the news today -

Islamabad: Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf pledged on Monday to hold free elections soon (when asked to define "soon", a Musharraf spokesman indicated it would be "as soon every citizen of Pakistan learns to play a musical instrument").

JENA, La. – A march and speeches by a white supremacist group are planned Monday, in opposition to the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration. The Nationalist Movement, a self-described "pro-majority" group, plans to stage "Jena Justice Day" on Monday. (When asked whether a decade from now, when the majority of Americans are of Hispanic origin, the "pro-majority" group would begin protesting George Washington's Birthday, the group spokesman's head exploded).

NEW DELHI - Asian and European markets nose-dived on Monday as hope that healthy local economies might escape the force of a United States recession evaporated and fear gripped investors instead. (At the White House, President Bush reminded Wall Street investors that when they sell stocks, terrorists win and posed the question, "I say the Economy is Jim-Dandy Fine! Who you gonna believe? The Decider, or a bunch of fur'ners?")

Sarasota, FL - Rudy Giuliani says he's ready for his rivals to join him campaigning in the Sunshine State. The Republican has been spending all his time in Florida, hoping to win the state's January 29th primary. (In a new AP poll, 29% of Florida Republicans say they'll vote for Guiliani if he'll just go away and promise to never, ever come back.)

NAVASOTA, Texas (AP) - Campaigning for Mike Huckabee, actor Chuck Norris said Sunday that Sen. John McCain is too old to handle the pressures of being president. (McCain countered by challenging Norris to a Steel Cage Death Match, and pointing out that Mike Huckabee is too nuts to be President.)

I've been posting again over on Mulligrubbers, with some political observations of a more serious nature. Come on over and play if you like!

Lovely album cover. The juxtaposition of terror and the butterfly is particularly poignant. Especially since Homeland Security declared unaccompanied cocoons to be a national security threat.

Colonel Colonel said...

Well, yes. coccoons are bad. ever since they attacked us in 9-11.

Atlas Cerise said...

As much as I dislike memes, I thought this one was actually pretty funny. My band's called "Interstate 92" and the hit song is "Only While I'm Asleep". Here's the album cover.

Hungry Mother said...

I presented you with this award for excellence in blogging.

Mike said...

Like I told Phoebe, I really want to do that album cover thing but I my band name has to be The Nairobi Trio. Nothing else is going to do for me. I wonder how long I'll have to hit that random Wiki thing to make it work out.

Malach the Merciless said...

I want more State of Denial!

Colonel Colonel said...

Atlas: Cool cover. Is the music any good?

HungroMo: Well, thank you!!

Mike: Go for it. how long can it take to go through 150 million possible pages with a fast connection?

Malach: So do I. I've got to get back to work on those.

sirdar said...

That album cover, title and band name aren't worse than some of them out there these days...

My Dawn did that meme too. I might have to give it a try. I don't do memes but really, it isn't truly a meme. It is just fun.

Love you thoughts on things. Very funny!!

Simply Curious said...

My album cover was better. Na na na na na na.

I thought Guiliani was dead. That's what Angry man Said. Or maybe he's just playing dead?

Bruce, a work in progress said...

Great cover.

Hey, I gave you award. It's the same one Hungry Mother gave you but that just means you're twice as excellent.

Sara Sue said...

I love this meme! I think yours suits you to a tee!

pissed off patricia said...

I'll pay for Rudy's ticket home if he will just please get the hell out of my state.

He drove his fu*king bus around the track at Daytona speedway yesterday. He was miffed because the wouldn't let him drive a pace car. I am not kidding about this. I swear.

Buzzardbilly said...

Excellent album cover.

The thing that scares me about Huckabee is there's an idea he shouldn't be taken seriously. Isn't that kind of the same way Reagan started out? When people still thought of him as an actor first.

With this recession stuff, I'm getting flashbacks of trickle-down effects and gov'mnt cheese.

Preposterous Ponderings said...

Awesome album cover!

Thanks for playing along darling.

Beach Bum said...

Great album cover.

I must admit to utter surprise that anyone would pay any attention to the holier-than-thou ramblings of Chuck Norris. Where the hell are the Spears sisters and Paris Hilton when you really need them?

Colonel Colonel said...

Just got back from a book auction. Will have replies in the morning.

Colonel Colonel said...

Hi everyone- yes, this album cover project was pretty interesting. I'm going to start a movement to draft Britney Spear to be President. Hey- she's in the news every day anyway...

anaglyph said...

Oh, I LOVE it. Stay tunéd.

Thomas said...

As if Godifiying the Constitution wasn't enough to make me NEVER vote for Huckanut, Chuck Norris endorsing him sealed the deal.

I know the lady that sold Norris his ranch here in Texas. I think I will find her and kick her ass for doing it.
