Derek's Music Album Covers

There's a new meme going around that I'm having quite a bit of fun with. The instructions are these:


1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
or click
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to "Random quotations"
or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

5 - Post it with this text in the "caption" and TAG the friends you want to join in

Instead of doing step 3 as is, I've actually gone through and compiled a random grouping of my own photos to use. You may need to click on the photos to see the whole images. Now that I've posted them, I have no idea how to Part of me is tempted to go through and type up a brief 100-250 word background for each of the albums. Maybe another day...

Boulton Operators - Significant Intelligence
Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence. -Henrik Tikkanen
This photo is an across-the-river shot of old oil company buildings that were being decommissioned. That area is now a nice walking park.

Havelock -
Americans are benevolently ignorant about Canada, while Canadians are malevolently well informed about the United States. -J. Barlett Brebner
This photo is of a light fixture in the downtown South Bend, IN area near TCU.

K-Seg - It Stuck
I shot an arrow into the air, and it stuck - Graffito

This is the top of an electrical power plant in Mishawaka, IN, near the animal food plant and Marian High School.

Chip Racing - The Duty of Being Happy
There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy. -Robert Louis Stevenson
I took this photo while burning an old computer. It had a habit of behaving poorly.

Gulf Storm - Falling Around a Helpless Thing
The poet judges not as a judge judges but as the sun falling around a helpless thing. -Walt Whitman
I took this photo back in 1992 while in Baton Rouge, LA. I was in town researching a college. This photograph is the front of a museum, I believe.
