I am not a material girl. I actually don’t usually like shopping. Gasp. I know. The best way to torture me is to take me to the mall. Or Wal-Mart. I go to each of those places only once a year, out of necessity, and only around Christmas time. I prefer doing all my shopping online. The only exception is the Apple Store. And Target. And Ikea. And Lowe’s. Okay, maybe I’m a little more materialistic than I thought, but only when it comes to home improvement or electronics! I’m such a nerd.

I recently saw a post on Facebook for a fun way to choose your own band name. Cuz, you know, everyone should have a band. I had seen it several times before, but this time I caved and actually followed the instructions. I must have had more free time than usual (yeah, right. insert rolling eyes here), but I really like how it turned out. To play along:

  • Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random” or CLICK HERE. The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
  • Go to “Random quotations” or CLICK HERE. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
  • Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or CLICK HERE. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
  • Use photoshop or a similar application to put it all together.

So I did. And here’s my new band:

Oh sweet irony. I love it.

If you have done this little game, or want to play along (it’s Friday after all. Go kill some time), please share your band name in the comments. I’d love to see more of these!

Here’s to materialism. In the most un-materialistic sort of way. And the newest band on the music scene. And cotton candy. For some reason, I’m in a carnival mood… Cheers!

    I have been reading your blog as of 30 minutes ago, and so far, I love it!

    My picture is unfortunately copyrighted, so I’m not going to spend a whole bunch of time trying to get it :) Anyways, my band is Alemannic Guard and our album title is “A Little of What’s Going On.” I actually really like it!!!

    Keep up the good work!
