A while back Flickr finally started listing statistics for those of us who are paid users. This makes it so much easier to track where an image of mine has been featured or discussed. I was tracking one recently and I found that someone in a gamer forum had linked it, so I followed it back and found this post. It’s standard internet meme garbage but hey, since I was part of the result I was amused.

This is for a game called Your Debut Album

1 – Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to random quotations: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 – Go to Flickr’s “explore the last seven days” http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Put it all together, that’s your debut album.

So someone did all that and posted:

Band: Speech of Silence
album name: Say, and then speak.
There is a perfectly valid reason for me having done this

The name and album are awesome, the cover is scary

For some reason the multiple references to silence or speaking paired with a picture of me looking like a coal miner zombie just cracks me up.

Okay, fine, even though it’s dumb I couldn’t resist. I thought it was kind of pretty, actually.

I ended up being very pleased with our first release. A real overnight success, in my opinion.
