Put a Fork In It

I did it! I finished the manuscript. And, as usual, the minute I typed the last word I thought the whole book was crap. There's something broken in my brain.

So, for fun today, I bring you the Facebook craze that's sweeping the nation: Debut Album. It's fun and easy to play! Here's mine:

1 -Click here: The first random Wikipedia article you get is t he name of your band.

2 - Click here: The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Click here: ht tp:// The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - I slapped mine together in Word, but if you want to get fancy you can use Photoshop or

If you release your debut album, please paste a link to it in the comments section. Some of these are amazingly cool.

This album thing is pretty cool!

Giving you "Powerless to Vex Your Mind," by my new band, Metacrocea:

Fantastic debut album, Tyler. I see you topping the charts in no time!

Tyler said...

Yes! I'm taking it to Simon Cowell!

By the way, I forgot to mention that your album cover is AMAZING, haha. That picture is hilarious.

Band Name: Spitzhorn
Album Name: "Doing the Right Thing on Someone Else's Advice"
Album cover:
Didnt have time to put it all together :)

Christy Raedeke said...

Ha! I'm going to start calling you Spitzhorn! I love that. Your cover art would make a great angsty YA book cover.

You can see mine over at the blog:

I did it the first time and it kinda sucked, but second go-round was definitely better!

I think you win for best album cover.

Christy Raedeke said...

AC, I should have known you'd beat me to the blog on this! You always discover the cool stuff first :) I dig both your albums, but your second is very very cool. Definitely no sophomore slump for your band.

Rock on!

Suzanne Young said...

Okay, that was SO MUCH FUN!!!!! Love it. And I mentioned this(and pickled baby) in the post. Check it!

Tyler said...

I followed Suzanne's lead and made my own post about it.

AC, I personally think your first one is SWEET. And the band name works; I'm sure death really isn't much of a marinobacterium fan.
