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

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
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.

Here's mine... )

Fun stuff!

1) Have your music library ready.
2) Choose one song from your music library whose title starts with the first letter (or number) of your screen name.
3) Repeat this process with each successive letter (or number) in your screen name until you run out of letters (or numbers).
4) Post up your results.
5) BONUS POINTS: Upload your mix (whether it's individual songs or a .zip of all the songs) and include the mix in your post.
6) MORE BONUS POINTS: Add the line around the 1:10 mark of at least five songs.


No reason why I picked these, just that they were the first songs I clicked on after reaching the right letter.  And boy, am I glad I have a bunch of songs starting with "A".  :)

(J) Journey to the Past - Aaliyah (Anastasia Soundtrack)
(A) All Fall Down - OneRepublic
(L) Lonely Soldier Boy - Michael Bradley (Robotech Soundtrack)
(A) As Long As You're Mine - Idina Menzel & Norbert Leo Butz(Wicked Musical)
(N) Never Ending Story - Limahl
(A) Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do) - Christopher Cross

And since I had time, I did the line at 1:10 of each of the songs also:

(J) Arms will open wide...
(A) Take a breath, take a step, meet me down below.
(L) You're out here on your own, lonely soldier boy.
(A) I'll make every last moment last, as long as you're mine.
(N) Dream a dream, and what you see will be.
(A) Best that you can do is fall in love.

They came out rather coherently... almost like telling a little story.  How intriguing!  :)

Anyway, here's the zip file of the songs if anyone is interested.  Enjoy!

When you see this, post in your own journal with your favorite quote from The Princess Bride. Preferably not "As you wish" or the Inigo Montoya speech.

I'm hard-pressed to choose just ONE favorite quote from this movie. Should I choose any one of the hilarious Vizzini lines? Or perhaps Miracle Max? In the end, this is what I decided on:

The Impressive Clergyman: Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam. And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva... So tweasure your wuv.

Yes. Treasure your wuv. :D

First one that came to mind!  Stolen from [info]earlgreytea68[livejournal.com profile] jlrpuck :

As was demonstrated in an interview with Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade.

The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic, to your lj. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.) For those who see this on your f-list, take the meme to your OWN lj to spread the fun.

Brown v. Board of Education    Frankly, I am VERY surprised she couldn't name this one, since this was the landmark decision that overturned segregation in public education.  All hail the civil rights movement.  Guess that doesn't mean much up in Alaska... :P
