No Autographs, Please (The Band Meme)

I've joined a rock band. Actually, I AM a rock band. Nobody will let me join their group so I decided to make my own dungeon band.
It's a screeeaammm.
Ever heard of my group?

I didn't think so.

Only a Meme Queen could perpetuate the world of rock 'n roll with a music meme-o-matic such as this. This meme is showing up everywhere! Not only is it entertaining but it would also make an interesting sidebar conversation piece. Think of it as sitting on the mantel in your blivingroom. (that's blog + living room for all you non blog speakers). I decided to bite the tag that bit me. Unofficially coerced tagged by someone else I finished this little project with a new respect for mindless memology. The result was downright spooky.

The Band Meme

Here's how it goes. You are about to have your own band's CD cover. Follow these directions to the letter. My tagee list is at the bottom of this post. It's fun and requires no thought at all. Go to......

The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together, and post the result as a comment in this post. Also, pass it along in your own journal because it’s more amusing that way.
My results!

The title of my album is Have Very Few Virtues? Oh Shi'ite!
This will not be sitting on my blog mantel.
I tag the following bloggers -who must now (if they know what's good for 'em) - go forth and tag. Actually, that's optional but I'm asking pretty please.
UPDATE Monday 1/14/08 - If your name is starred you have completed your meme. If not, may God have mercy on your soul.

Hammer **

Peanut **

And don't even think about dodging this meme!

I know where you blive (that's blog + know..)

And there's always
You don't want to spend bleternity with all these bloggers, now do you?
Think about it.
That's what I thought.

Travis Cody said...

It turns out that I did this over at Bond's, but I didn't exactly follow the rules.

Now just a minute! Before you give me the evil dungeon eye...I fully intend to comply with the tag. And, despite my engagingly charming tendency not to follow the rules, I shall this time.

What? Oh! I shall follow the rules this time.

I have another tag, so look for Trav's Tantalizing T'Week of T'Memes. (I had to find a way to make the all T alliteration)

Anonymous said...

OMG, I'm so not gonna dodge this one! I promise. This one looks like fun. :)

Please don't lock me in the dungeon. I have a phobia of locked doors.

Unknown said...

May I join your band? I play 6- and 12-string guitar. And banjo. And, of course, I (sort of) sing.


Cindy, aka Maxfun said...

Amazing! The three pieces just seem to go together naturally! See my blog for the results. (Hee hee! Made you go look!)

Akelamalu said...

Oh this looks like fun :) I'll let you know when mine's up. x

Carver said...

Hi Mimi,

This looks like a fun one. I'm notoriously slow with tags but I'll do it and let you know when I have. Take care, Carver

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

but but but ..... I stole this from Bud and just did it this week... honest oh Queen

Unknown said...

Ooooh - you rock, Queen Mimi!
The cover will be up tomorrow ;)

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Wow. A Shi'ite rock band. Most be because of the war and all. Thanks hon, for letting me push you. You done good...

Daisy said...

Hahahah! That's a funny one! I always wanted to be in a band.

Julie said...

Well thank my lucky stars! I just did this meme this morning! Though I didn't give you props...well I will if you want me too.

*waits patiently for the Queen 'O Memes to respond*

Margo Moon said...

Two things, Queenie.

First, Starr Ann strongly resisted us doing this Meme because she WANTS to visit your dungeon.

Second, when you see our picture, you'll think we cheated, but I'm swearing we DID NOT CHEAT.

Sandee said...

Mine is up. I will do most anything to avoid the dungeon. Thanks for the tag, this one was fun. Have a great day Mimi. :)

I visited Odat as you requested. How sad. :(

Cinnamon Girl said...

Yup I found it at Bonds and popped the links up there.but I never got around to putting up on my site so that is what I am gonna do!

Me. Here. Right now. said...

Your wish...

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Ohh Joy!!
Being tagged by you means that I have finally arrived as a blogger. I am taking a picture of this post and hanging it up in my den. Looks like fun Mimi. For this, I will need some Speed ... High Speedy Internet. I'm going to get me some DSL at the office.
Thanks for including me, I shall put my best Meme forward. Yhaaaa Hooo!!!!!

Speedy Cat Hollydale (novice memer, until today :-)

Anonymous said...

That's a hilarious you came up with. And it sounds like fun. I won't dodge it either. Thanks for thinking of me. I'll let you know what I come up with.

Jackie said...

Oh mimi, wow I sorta' feel like Speedy. thanks so much for tagging me.

I promise I shall do my best. But can I pretty please beg off until tomorrow?

My poor hubby has called twice to talk to me and both times I was posting.

Shessshhhh...I hope I can do this justice.

Jackie said...

Oh Poohhh...this just looks like too much fun to wait. I'll call him right quick and then get started:)

In an attempt to keep my scurvy carcass out of the dungeon, I tried to respond to this meme post-haste. Unfortunately, Flicker is busy having a nervous break-down, so I'm going to have to delay a bit. But, I promise I will respond.

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis- You do have dangerously charming ways but this time you must comply with the rules. The Queen hath! I said it!

Tish - Phobias are good reasons not to be locked in the dungeon. Locked doors? Really? I have a phobia of rats/mice. I know how you feel. I don't even go down to the dungeon for that very reason. I just have McDonald's deliver to the backdoor and throw in some fries for the prisoners every now and then. They are so tired of Big Macs and fries.

Hammer - Coming to see!

Nick - Of course you may join my band. I could always use a good guitar player.

Cindy - It is quite odd they way they fit. Isn't it?
I'll go look for sure.

Akelamalu - I'll bet yours will have a grass skirt in it. Wouldn't be surprised.

Carver - Watch out for the you-know-what. It's dark down there...

Bond - Likely story. Bud did not tell me you stole it from him. He did not. He did not. He did not. And I know he notices these things! You're just trying to get out of it. I know your kind.
P.S. Guido said to tell you not to mess with the Queen. He is not amused.

Sanni -I'm predicting your cover will be something with a short and cute skirt and a head of beautiful long dark locks around that lovely face of yours. I'm psychic that way ya know.

Bud - Thank you for the gentle push. It has been a fun exercise to do. I couldn't believe the results myself. Interesting.......Yours is pretty incredible too. I like this meme a lot.

Daisy - Do you sing kitty?
I need an alto voice and another six-string.

Julie - I will come over and have a look see. I didn't invent this meme so I can't take credit. Bud asked me to do it and I have no idea where he got it from. I don't know if he knows where he got it. So I'll have to give him credit for getting this started here.

Margo and Starr Ann - Oh...this should be interesting. I can't wait to see what happened. Don't tell me. Cowboy hats? Spurs?

Sandee - I shall be over soon! Yes, my heart hurts for Odat.

Starrlight - What did you come up with? Something to do with a storm I'll bet. It just kind of works that way. This meme is VERY oddly psychic that way.

In reference to Hahn - Did you see that people?! "Your wish...." Now THAT is the way to answer to Her Highness. Yep. Take notes all you meme dodgers. She did not even argue with me (and I've been in a foul mood since Christmas let me tell ya). Just did it right off the bat like a good blogger should.
There will be no dungeon for Miss Hahn. No sirree.

Speedy - I will autograph it if you like! lol

Gem - I'm glad you could come back here to my humble blog and participate in a meme. Aren't you supposed to be writing a book, lady? And a great book it is,folks!

Shinade - I would hate to think a meme caused this divorce.

Cinnamon Girl said...

Band Name : Mademoiselle Charlotte
Album : All The Wrong Reasons

Cool picture too. It be pink =) Post is up!

Robin Lee Sardini said...

Thank you Queen, but I'll have to wait until Flickr gets back from its massage. That's what their downtime message said...really.

Carol said...

K ms Queen of Memes,
I have completed this to the best of my humble ability :p.
Thanks for thinking of me for this one!

Mauigirl said...

Got the tag! I will go forth and meme.

I think I have another one lined up as well. Maybe I'll make Sunday Memeday!

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Oh my. Well we have worked out the written stuff but Flickr is having a massage! I'll have to post later in the week! (Monday's post is done done done! :)).

Also, will have to remember to do this on the PC side of the 'puter so I *have* a photoshop type program to mess with that! :)

Should be fun!

Jackie said...

Mimi you've gone and done it now. You have driven Flkr to go get a massage. I think we have all crashed them.

No dicorce he is watching football anyway!!:)

Linda said...

Good God, woman, I believe you have tagged half of the Blogosphere with this one! Did you lose control of your scepter or something??

I shall certainly take care of this tag but you need to give me a day or two to adjust back to only having one daughter at home. Also, the one daughter at home is probably going to have to help me put this together and she is spending the night at a friend's house this evening.

See? I have lots of excuses! But I will get to it - honest!

Mimi Lenox said...

Starr - Ooohhh...that does sound cool. And so you! This meme is downright spooky.

Robin - Flickr is having a massage. Likely story!

Carol - I shall be there soon to check it out. Does it say something about world peace? I'll bet it does.

Mauiugirl - Go forth and Meme. I love it!

Cheysuli/Gemini - You too?! Hmmm.....

Jackie - OOPS.

Do you people expect me to believe this massage story?!Really now.

Linda - Yes, I lost control. It happens occasionally.
What do you mean you haven't done your meme? Excuses! Excuses!!

Queen is not happy.

Little Wing said...

I am thinking it might be FUN to be tossed in the Dungeon with some of these bloggers!!!!!!!

My band name is:
Economy of Galicia

The title of my album is:
Fear, Maybe That's It!

My cover photo is a big black biting fly!

But alas, I have no program to combine them!!!!!

Jackie said...

I got mine done. Wow it turned out really cool!! My name is Oxhey Football F.C. and my album cover is Life In Your Own Way.

Thanks Mimi this was a blast!!:)

DubLiMan said...

I'll make you a deal. I will complete this meme if you join my little club. Send me an email and I'll email you the details. I have a hunch that you would love it, especially since you are the "queen of memes." FYI, both Sandee and Jackie are in it.

Gill said...

Mine is up - gotta say I quite like the title of my album!

maryt/theteach said...

I really loved doing this meme, Mimi! The idea is very creative...Thanks for visiting mine. Yours, A Shi'ite Anthology, with the pic worked very well.

Latharia said...

*grin* Too amusing!!! I'll have to see if I can follow along.

Carrie said...

This is right up my alley! I am downloading a decent graphics manipulation program as we speak.. no shoddy Paint for this assignment, no sirree! An Official Meme from the Queen demands the best in results, and that is what you shall get.

Unknown said...

YAY! Standard Oil of Ohio´s first album is in the store for just $19.99!

Wanna buy?

No small skirts or dark locks are involved, but praliiiiiines =)

Mimi Lenox said...

Little Wing - You are learning, my friend, how to make the Queen happy. Go on with your blogging self.

Shinade - I want to see!

Monday Morning Power - Did I hear you right? This is not Let's Make a Deal ya know!!
Did you say it was a meme?
I'll be right over.

Colin - WHO let you OUT?

Gill - I'll bet it has to do with writing, yes?

The Teach - The Shi'ite thing was just spooky. Especially for a peaceful Queen.

Latharia - Welcome to Bloggingham. I await your masterpiece.

Asara - Did I mention that I plan to promote you in the Kingdom?

Sanni! But isn't Oil of Ohio like Oil of Olay? Still prissy. Yep. Right up your alley.

Can't wait to see.

A big thanks to Bud the Meme Stealer for letting me know about this.

Ian said...

Mimi! Mine are up! Go see!


Dawn Drover said...

This was such a cool meme... thanks from the meme thief ;))

bundle-o-contradictions said...

My home 'Puter is cranky. Unfortunately, mine will have to be posted when I get to my work 'Puter. Looks like fun! :)

DubLiMan said...

It's not posted yet. I'll email you the details. I would like you to be in on the launch once I have your email address. Mine is FYI - open invite.

Durward Discussion said...

I got it posted after much struggle with paint that I almost never use (sob sob) and the results were shall we say "interesting". It's very romantic and can be found HERE

DubLiMan said...

I gave in and did it. My curiosity got the better of me. It was fun and the result was amazing. If you get the chance come on by and take a look.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ian - I shall. I shall!

Dawn - It is a very cool meme. I liked yours as well.
Thanks for visiting!

Bundle - YOu will love it.

Monday - This sounds interesting indeed.
And I'll be right over!

Colin - I might be a looonnnggg ten years dude.

Jamie - I just saw yours and commented. The picture is lovely.

Anndi said...

My assignment is complete your Majesty (I promise not to torture you with silly Christmas songs this time)... Chicklet even has one!


it was fun!

Anonymous said...

Your Royal Highness, I have answered the Royal Summons and completed the assignment. I did so gladly and with a smile on my face. It was a challenge because, as you know, Flickr was busy having a nervous breakdown. But the assignment has been completed, and handsomely done if I do say so myself.

Maggie Moo said...

Okie dok! It's up! :)

peanut butter said...

no dungeon for me!

DubLiMan said...

Just a suggestion.....when you bring all the albums together into one post, why not invite all of the participants to copy your post onto their page for maximum linkage.

P.S. I still need your email address.

Patti said...

Hi Mimi,
I did it

bundle-o-contradictions said...

Mine's up!

Frank Sirianni said...

I'm up now too Mimi. This thing has a weird way of going together and seeming to make sence in its own way.

Mimi Lenox said...

Anndi - No more Brenda Lee. Please. Thank goodness she was not on one of these album covers or I would have had to close down this meme for good.

Peanut - I saw it. It's fabulous!

Monday Morning - Great suggestion. I am in the process of doing that now. Thanks.

Patti - I noticed you were not happy with Queen's command. Back to the dungeon for you!

Bundle - Yours is truly on the strangest I've seen.

Frank - The girl in the blue bathtub is too much. Did Lola see you put this together? Frank?! Frank? Hello?
Doghouse huh.....

Linda said...

Hey Mimi,
Ours turned out really cool.
Our band name is Impersonator
Album name is Universe Will be Simpler
And the cover photo is a DEER! How fitting for our yard, heheheheh.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Robin Lee Sardini said...

Woebedone! I had to ask the photog's use the photo which is of a sexy woman with a look of longing on her face.
The name of my band is The Ansonia and the album title is "Will Be Better Tomorrow". Title matches the pic nicely!

Tiggerlane said...

FINALLY! I did it!

My band name was "Voracity Patch," and the title was "Aiming at What's Far."


Sorry it took me so long!

Unknown said...

Hi, Mimi. I came here from Sandee's blog...would it be OK if I played this game? Nobody tagged me for it, and typically I don't like to be tagged, but when it comes a fun one, I want to join in. Hope I'm not being too forward. *blushing* (Rhonda)

Unknown said...

Hey. Me again. You got the master here (on your sidebar)? I want to refer others back to it, so everybody can keep updated.


Unknown said...

Hey, chickie. Forget my last remark. I found your box thingy majig post and referenced it. It's up. Come see. Good times.
