I’m immediately reminded of these videos of classic hits as interpreted by Microsoft Songsmith — seriously, some of those are wonderfully awful — as well as by people who’ve taken Ze Frank’s already weird voice-based drawing toy and adapted it to interpret popular music.

In general, I’m interested in people who take tools and turn them towards completely unexpected purposes.


It’s the meme that’s sweeping the internet this second!

  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.

No one is “tagged” or obligated to post their own. I just thought it was amusing.
