The Band Meme

Posted: Tuesday, January 15, 2008 by Travis Cody in

I saw this first over at The Couch. I did the exercise and posted my results in the comments. But then it was the weekend and the NFL playoffs, and I blogged the games. So I didn't get a chance to post my CD cover here.

And then Mimi tagged everyone in her bloggosphere because, you know, she's the Queen of Memes and she has a dungeon.

So I'm finally getting my CD cover posted.

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.

Now the first picture I used when I did this over at The Couch wouldn't save, so I'm starting this meme afresh.

Here's my CD...

Everybody has either been tagged for this or has chosen to do it, so I decided to try something a little different. I've gone back to the quotes link and randomly chosen parts of quotes for track titles on my CD.

1. Too Much Of A Temptation
2. Craft A Spirit
3. Decision
4. A Helpless Thing
5. Facing A Mirror
6. There's A Lot More I Could Be Doing
7. It's Useless
8. Fill Yourself Up
9. Listen to the Whisper
10. The Things We Do
11. Fools Are Positive
12. Enough To Go Around


  1. Schmoop says:

    "Fools Are Positive"...I like that title. Cheers Travis!!

  1. Anndi says:

    So.. what's your inspiration man, like, dude, that's awesome! *giggles*

    I like the song titles.. very nice twist!

  1. Ian says:

    Definitely like the track listing - I didn't think of doing that myself.


  1. i'm im mimi's dungeon.... sigh

    smiles, bee

  1. Cool picture! My band name was Mademoiselle Charlotte which I liked a lot. Mimi tagged me with this after I saw it on Bond's. I liked the newer picture I got second time around!

  1. That's a really neat idea. Personally I think "The Corporate Shills" would be a great band name.

  1. I may do this too. My "made up" band is called Putryd Bytch.

  1. Linda says:

    I like that you did the track listing, I may have to go back and do a modify on mine!

    Excellent idea! And a great album cover, too!

  1. Akelamalu says:

    The track listing is a great idea! I got tagged too!

  1. I have yet to do this one because I am suffering through the real thing at home as Dean makes a cd...LOL.

  1. Sandee says:

    I love it Travis. You are just so talented. I passed over all those football posts you have. It must be January... Have a great day. :)

  1. TopChamp says:

    I like 'listen to a whisper' the best. Think you could do a fab song from that - something like 'Espers' of 'Soundtrack of our Lives' might come up with.

  1. Unknown says:

    No fair! I want to go back and add tracks to my CDs now!

  1. Matt: I think that one is my favorite.

    Ann: I had to be different.

    Ian: If I could have made the picture bigger, it would have been cool to show the reverse side of the CD with the tracks listed.

    Bee: Awwww. I'll bring you some CAKE.

    Starr: That's a great band name.

    Lana: Agreed!

    Charles: Excellent!

    Linda: You should!

    Akelamalu: Isn't it cool how they really do sound like songs?

    Kyra: I'm actually considering writing some poems to go with my track titles.

    Sandee: I understand about the football posts...only 3 games left!

    TC: That one is my second favorite behind Fools Are Positive.

    Dana: Dooooooooo it!

  1. Unknown says:

    YAY - I love your album and the tracking list. Could you please send a signed copy?

  1. I love the track titles! "Craft A Spirit" is my favorite. You are OUT of the dungeon (for now). Alas, you're going to miss my new chocolate cake recipe. The prisoners are enjoying it tonight.

    What? What's that down there?

    Sorry, Trav. Gotta go.


  1. I've started this several time, and EVERY TIME I've clicked on the random first link, I've gotten...Art Rock Circus. How odd is that?

  1. RW says:

    Thats a aweesome album and doing the tracks a very nice touch! I am going to do this but it will haf' to be this weekend! Good job Travis!!

  1. Jeff B says:

    I think I may be the only blogger on the planet that Mimi didn't tag on this one. Ssssh

    Nice touch.

  1. I'm sure you've heard lots of this, but the track listing idea is cool!

    And so is having an album cover :D

  1. The track listing is an awesome idea! This meme has been so much fun!

  1. Julie says:

    Hey good job! I really like the songs that you pulled out! Why can I make all those titles ornery?


  1. Sanni: A signed copy eh? Hehehe.

    Mimi: No CAKE? **pout**

    Songbird: Now that is odd.

    Roger: I look forward to your CD.

    Jeff: I won't tell.

    Terra: I'm working on some lyrics too.

    Misty: This is my favorite meme.

    Julie: Because you're you!

  1. Unknown says:

    I'm doing some band-hopping and hopefully making some linky-love while I'm at it ;)

    Some of these have turned out weird, but I liked yours...

    Have a gr8 weekend and stop on over by my place if you wanna. We'll have a cup'a joe or... someth'n-someth'n: The Band Meme. *smoochies*
