...I have strange conversations

If anyone has a better idea for the cover, go for it; this was the best I could do for right now.

The things my best friend and I think of while being silly @ 01:49 pm

A few days ago my best friend and I were being our usual silly selves and saying sequences of random words.

One of the results sounded like an album to me.

So I give you...

Sudden burst of creativity (read: procrastinating).

The eventual plan for this one is actually a video game, but I decided to see what it would be like to make it into an album.

due to past history and recent nightmares about nuns, i tried my hand at this one

Nuns in a BlenderCollapse )

or the other versionCollapse )

The first one turned out more serious than I meant it too, but I haven't worked with Photoshop much, so I'm attempting to teach myself...

Anyway, I was wondering if I could put out a request for Righteous Bisquick
... and i think the other one was Griddle of Golgotha, but I can't remember for sure. I would definitely like to see Righteous Bisquick, though.

Tower of Swine @ 11:05 am

Okay, so I stole "Tower of Swine" from milestogo13. For some reason, I started thinking it was a bagpipe album. So uh...yeah.

Amish Vengeance @ 05:11 pm

I'm actually kind of proud of how this one turned out. Took a bit longer than anticipated, but my brain feels oddly fulfilled. Remember, just because someone's used a band name, that doesn't mean you can't use it again in your own vision.

That having been said, please help me welcome to the stage...

Amish Vengeance!Collapse )

And for the sake of demonstration, or possible future use in other projects by others here, these were my two basic source pics, not counting the Amish I decapitated to splice in.

Band Name Suggestions, Vol. 1 @ 12:14 pm

So I figured I would go ahead and get the ball rolling here with a short list of band names that I'd like to see come to fruition somehow. I don't have any general use pictures to go along with them, but seriously, between Google Images, AltaVista, and any number of internet collections of people doing stupid things, I don't think we'll have a problem scrounging those up. If you make a cover off of these, or one of your own personal inspirations (which is both allowed and encouraged, this isn't an official list by any means), you can go ahead and make a separate post, so long as you remember to keep the images behind a cut with proper warning for anything over the edge or not safe for work. Also keep in mind that coming up with a title for the album can really help sell it. Feel free to throw additional band name suggestions on the pile either in comments here, or in another post of your own.

Album Covers I'd Like to See:

The Fuzzy Cheese Eaters
Tangy Mangoes (for kokopellinelli)
Nuns in a Blender
Tha $enior Citizen$ (think old white rappers)
Tower of Swine
Billy Joel's Liver
Amish Vengeance (very death metal)

A Partially Naked Hello @ 07:49 pm

I am constantly hearing phrases or saying things in conversations which, when taken out of context, become infinitely more hilarious. My first reaction to such phrases, being the music whore that I am, is "That would make an excellent band name." Along that same vein, I'm constantly seeing pictures that, being innately out of context as photographs are, strike me as things that would make excellent album covers. I know I'm not alone in either of these passtimes, as my friends at college and I could play either game for hours. Granted, those hours were usually from 1 to 4 AM, but still.

I decided to combine these concepts with the fact that many people here on LiveJournal are Photoshop junkies like me, and make a community where people can suggest band names, provide ridiculously amusing/confusing/disturbing pictures, and/or combine the two into album covers of their own design. No judging, no contests, just giggling like we were baked out of our gourds, some creative venting, and Photoshop practice to boot.

A basic example, crafted from a conversation I had with one of my friends earlier (mildly NSFW)Collapse )
