Wikipedia Meme

I got this meme from Matt, our resident grump :P
I know, it's been Meme mania on the blogs lately. Anyway, it's fun and here's what you do:

"Go to the Wikipedia home page and click random article. That is your band's name. Click random article again; that is your album name. Click random article 15 more times; those are the tracks on your album."

Band - Lemon Pepper

CD - Mangrove Lake

1. Marlin, Texas
2. Henry Selwin-Ibbetson, 1st Baron Rockwood
3. Russian Cruiser Almaz
4. AMA Formula Xtreme
5. Vladimir Solovyev
6. Sailor Suit
7. Gudrod Bjornsson
8. Operation Joint Forge
9. Princess Niloufer
10. New Beaver, Pennsylvania
11. Keesseyrehaa
12. Juzo Itami
13. Middenmeer Aerodrome
14. Starship EP
15. A Drink and a Quick Decision

Good aren't they? (I really should have read them though...)

*************

Was watching a segment on BBC Breakfast the other day about how women love to splurge on bargains they can wear to pieces and then throw out, and how they also love to spoil themselves with the occasional designer indulgence. There were two women on the BBC sofa, one dressed in spikey heels, animal print dress, typical blonde fashionista looks. The second was a fashion editor of The Guardian...and guess who she was dressed like? ...*drumroll*... Ugly Betty! Yes, it happens in real life! Seriously: Grey skirt, black tights, clunky Mary Janes. And wait for it........a Royal Blue knitted vest over a satin maroon shirt with a motif that looked suspiciously like polka dots.

Dan - Lemon Pepper, it's great isn't it? I've just tried it again and my band's name comes up as "Dead Man's Curve". Whew, glad I missed that one!

Nikki - your band sounds so smooth. Funny title though! I used to play Rayman!
Your title list leans heavily to the scientific Latin terms, indeed.

Mine are very military/aerospace.

Awww....you discovered my secret!


(Not.)

I think I'm going to have to give that meme a try!

Oh, and BTW m'lady, I think the bottom line of that BBC Breakfast is that fashion editors obviously have no fashion sense, which doesn't surprise me. After all, I've read plenty of music reviewers who clearly (and sometimes admittedly) knew little or nothing about music!

Olivia said...

Minstrel - Fashion editors with no fashion sense - is that like counselors with the ability to save any marriage but their own?

AmitL said...

Hi,Olivia..I didn't know Wikipedia had such interesting options..grin..

LOL at the lady dressed like Ugly Betty...I guess there's no accounting for some dress senses.:)

Cheers..am reading the 2-3 posts I missed,now.

funny. That Ugly Betty programme has picked up steam, I thought it was rubbish when I first saw it, but its not half bad!

The Moody Minstrel said...

BTW. m'lady, I did the meme myself and posted the results on the Snabulus blog. I think you might appreciate the album title...

Olivia said...

Amit - nice to see you back!

***

Palm Springs - unfortunately, none for a while if this strike continues...

Minstrel - on Snabulus??? I'll be right over!

MattJ said...

Grump? And there was I considering myself a burning ray of optimistic summer sunshine :D

List of asteroids/132701–132800 is still my favorite album track :p

Olivia said...

Matt - yep, warm as the sun on Pluto!

MattJ said...

Hidden beneath this cold craggy exterior is....well....ok its a cold craggy interior....pffffft! hidden depths are overrated, nobody ever drowned in shallow water! :D

That outfit would be great for a costume party:

"What are you dressed as?"

"Ugly Betty."

"Eeeeek."

Back in the day [according to my mother and aunties], women dressed with style, class, etc.
