a meme for Monday

here are the instructions:

  1. click here and the first article is the name of your band
  2. click here and the last few words of the very last quote of the page are the title of your album
  3. click here and the third picture is your album cover image

I know, it's similar to other memes, but I quite liked my results:

  • my band is called Karelides (an ancient mountain chain located between Eastern Finland and Lapland)
  • my album is like a moon on the tides, from this quote: "language exerts hidden power, like a moon on the tides" Rita Mae Brown, Starting From Scratch, 1988
  • the cover art:

(you're supposed to photochop it all together, but I don't have photoshop. . . altho I'm having fun in my head choosing fonts for the writing. . .)

It's a good day to stay inside and play quietly.

I, Like The View said...

<---- has to admit she cheated. . .


(ya know how fussy I am)('bout images, words, that kinda thing)


liked the idea of it tho. . .


and crayons! for you? ALWAYS (down arrow)

Rimshot said...

I did'nt cheat, but this is not the first image I was supposed to use. Something happened when I tried to save the first one and I had to redo that part.

The picture reminds me of the album cover of 'Physical Graffiti' - a later Led Zeppelin album.
So many times I think 'I'd love to have done that for a living' like designing album covers.

I, Like The View said...

KAZ erm, does it. . . neither my big brother nor the ex were into Led Zepp. . . if you'd have said Floyd or Midnight Oil, I might have had a chance

*shuffles akwardly*

I've always thought designing stuff was fun - my fave job ever was commissioning design. . .

like you, I'd have loved to have been a designer

ho hum

shot that is one way cool cover!! excellent choice of typefaces, may I add

Rimshot said...

aww, shucks ma'am, t'weren't nuthin'


I, Like The View said...

do mine!! do mine!!

per-lease. . .

. . .band name in lower case heavy-ish courier across the top

album name in a hand-written style flowing along the bottom almost as if joined up. . .

I'll owe you!


I, Like The View said...

like a moon
on the tides

album name like that - two lines, there's enough space across those floorboards

there's some cheese on top!!

Mel said...

Ohhhhhh......joint efforts to creation!

*waiting happily*

Shot DID do a brilliant job!

Mel said...



Homework complete!

I picked up this meme from over in USA and my effort's on my blog.

Rimshot said...

I cropped the image (aren't Albums square?)


Mel said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh......very nice.

Square huh?

UH oh.....

I, Like The View said...

nah. . . doesn't have to be any particilaur shape as far as I'm concerned Mel!

(only people who keep their albums in racks needs to worry about size and shape, methinks)

shot thank you - that's a good start. . . can we work it up a little, now the basics are in place. . . I told you I was fussy, right?


*ducks and runs*

dinahmow I did mean to credit you and your friend for this time's attempt. . . sorry. . . got carried away with the words and images and forgot to

many apolgies


Rimshot said...

Of COURSE we can...I expected nothing less, my dear View.

I was tempted to run the band name up the stair-rail.

But you go right ahead and send me your mark-ups and we'll revise it as many times as required to get it just right.

mig said...

Ooh - this sounds fun.
Back later.
(Those are all so clever!)

Oh and I do believe we might have seen a bit of the Karelides from a great distance.
