Bentheimer Landschaf: Of Another's Resemblance to Ourselves
Who is Bentheimer Landschaf? And the album title, how pretentious! Let's all put on our black turtlenecks and chelsea boots and ponder what this might mean.
Well, you can if you want, but none of it exists! It's a fun little exercise that Deanne from Dream Sequins passed along in which by using random entries on certain web pages you create an instant album cover. Want to play along? Here's what to do:
1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random… Read More”or click 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”or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3. 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 http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use photoshop or similar (I used Picassa) to put it all together.
The blogger tag rules say to blog your album cover, include the instructions in your post and tag five people to do the same.
I'm going to follow Deanne's lead and put it to everyone, and if you want to share, include a link to your blog in the comments or email me your album cover at denise[at]theswellelife.com. Have fun!
By the way, here's what my band name means:
The Bentheimer Landschaf (also known as Landrace of Bentheim) is a breed of domesticated sheep found in Germany. This breed is a cross between German and Dutch heath sheep and a marsh sheep. It is primarily used for landscape preservation.
So now you know!
And the full quote is, with reference to Admiration:
"Our polite recognition of another's resemblance to ourselves."
