ok… so I was bored (or… I’m a lemming)

I saw this on a friend’s blog and was bored so I decided to give it a try.

You are going to make a fictional band, complete with band name, album title and 15 songs. You will do this by going to wikipedia.org, clicking on “English” and then clicking “random article” on the left hand side. The first click will be your band name. The second is the album title, then click 15 more times to generate your song titles…

Here’s mine:

Band Name: Dogtown
Album Title: Holyrood Park

Song titles:

Reserved For the Cat
Varistaipale canal
Ollie Taylor
John Nee
Ambassadors from Germany (to Burkina Faso)
Vincent Richards
Glutamate-tRNA ligase
Speaker terminal
Our Lady of Annihilation

And now, the definitions of the songs:

Dogtown (Marin co, CA)
Holyrood Park (royal park in Edinburgh, Scotland)
Reserved For the Cat (novel, Mercedes Lackey)
Helena (as in, New York)
Consummate (no… really… it just came up…)
Varistaipale canal (a Finnish canal in Heinavesi)
Ollie Taylor (pro basketball player, Cleveland, 1947)
John Nee (Irish Story Teller)
Ambassadors from Germany to Burkina Faso
Vincent Richards (top american tennis player circa 1920s to 1940s)
Glutamate-tRNA ligase (cuz ya gotta have a song about enzymes)
Speaker terminal (as in… what you plug your speakers into)
Oaxaca (Oaxaca)
O.D.T. (Playstation game)
Tullus (fictional comic strip hero)
Our Lady of Annihilation (album by Most Precious Blood)
594 (as in, the year)

What a crack up! I’m thinking Emo with a hint of old school grunge…

    I love that the band “Dogtown” has as a lead song on their album “Reserved for the Cat.”

    I actually like Our Lady of Annihilation or Ambassadors from Germany better as band names, but there is definitely some irony in that first song title…! Thanks for the giggle.
