Monday Mimisms with Mimi Queen of Memes ~ Welcome To The Band (Update: Keep sending them! I will add.)

I'll admit I went a little overboard last Friday when I tagged most of the blogosphere with The Band Meme, but honestly folks, this meme is sooooo much fun. I've had a blast this weekend getting to know the rock stars in all of you. Who knew a bunch of peace bloggers and prosers could be so musically prolific?

Mel at Monday Morning Power suggested that I invite all of the participants to copy this post onto their page for maximum linkage. I think that's an excellent idea. We could all use some link love in the new year. So feel free but not obligated. There is a compiled link list at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Below are the band members who have posted their Band Meme - in no particular order. If I didn't find yours, please send it and I will add the link. Click the CD covers to be magically transported to the blog.

Can you guess who the covers below to? Some of them fit in a truly eerie way! Have fun. You will be introduced to new bloggers along the way. There are a few real surprises in the bunch. You were incredibly creative with your posts. Most of all, it was hilarious (and serious too) to see the variety of styles and combinations of words and colors. Even more fun to listen to some of you fuss and fume with Paintshop programs only to find that you really did have a talent for graphics after all. The band memes are extremely thought-provoking; some would be excellent names for real bands. Wanna play?

I could use a good guitarist ya know! Click away!

What does one hope for when tossing out a meme? One or two responses? An excellent post? They're ALL excellent with 35 contributors thus far checking in from the 82 bloggers I tagged on Friday. A few people made more than one album cover.This means that ......wait need my pencil.....
82 minus 35 carry the TWO THREE ......oh rats my pencil broke....... be right back....

carry the ZERO?


leaves eight Wait! Twelve minus five is eight, right? SIGH....removing shoes.
I'll start again. Twelve minus five equals SEVEN. Yes. As I said before I was rudely interrupted, twelve minus five is eight seven.
Seven minus THREE equals.....I hate math!!!
....equals TWO TRES? Cuatro or FOUR. Yep. Dos. That's it for sure.Which means that exactly 47 of you meme dodgers are in big doo-doo trouble (as Daisy would say. Hey! Where is Daisy's meme?) What's that? Oh Lord. It just changed to 36. I have to start all over. Somebody added a mandolin at the last minute.
In a rock band??
We just made some beautiful music. Did you hear it?

Misty Dawn said...

Hate to tell you this Mimi, but you'll have to re-do ALL your math, because some of us who did the meme went ahead and tagged some other people whom you hadn't tagged... just sayin' (you know you love me and can't help it... right? hehe)

These turned out to be GREAT album covers! Some make so much sense together, and there are some great band names!

Sorry mine wouldn't load - I did it in Paintbrush because I have no idea what I'm doing with graphic stuff! LOL!

Thanks for linking it!

Desert Songbird said...

I promise I'll get to mine. I promise.

I have been very under the weather, so I'm pleading for an extension, your majesty.

katherine. said...

geez...I can't be in trouble....I just got home...

Mimi Lenox said...

Bee - I see you.

Carol - Bloggers are some of the most creative people in the world. Writers, artists, musicians, peace bloggers.....yep. You guys are something else.

Patti - Aren't they?

Teach - Thank you!

Sanni - OK. We'll swap. We have a mutual admiration society going anyway between us. Always have.

Misty Dawn - Can't you see I can't add?! Oh. That was subtraction, wasn't it? See??!

Colin - What have you done now? Sigh.

Bond - Ha! Very funny.

Mauigirl - I think it was the format you saved it in. Try saving it in JPG and re-send to me. OK?

Feel better, Songbird. Just feel better.

Hahn at Home said...

This was the coolest meme ever, of course. Thanks for tagging me.

Your wish...

Dixie said...

I've done a lot of meme's but I loved this one the best. I loved it so much that I may do another one. I'm just in that kind of mood.

Thanks for the tag ... and keeping me out of the cold ass dungeon...


Travis said...

These are great! Mine will be posted tomorrow. I think you'll be pleased.

Terra Shield said...

This was one of the coolest memes ever! Thanks for the tag... I've put up mine :)

Linda said...

This really was a very fun meme and it's so nice to see that so many people jumped into it with both feet.

Kudos to Bud for stealing it to begin with and also to you aiding and abetting in the distribution of a stolen meme! You two are a regular Bonnie & Clyde!
