my debut album
on my first try I got Van der Graaf Generator as the band name. but since such a band already exists, so I clicked random again and got Dictionary of Man, which turned out to be Bob Geldof‘s project.
the full quote was : Acceptance without proof is the fundamental characteristic of Western religion, rejection without proof is the fundamental characteristic of Western science. by Gary Zukav.
the picture was from flickr by Kent Mercurio.
here’s how it works :
1 – Open http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
(alternatively, if the first article you hit is short, hit Random Article two more times.)
2 – Open 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 – Open http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use photoshop/paint or similar to put it all together.
5 – Post it to FB with “My Debut Album” in the “caption” and TAG the friends you want to join in.
Sometimes body language can betray you and how you want others to perceive you.
Today I saw someone taking a phonecall. Based on their conversation, I think it was a relative from her hometown (somewhere in Sulawesi, based on her accent and the slangs she used). The relative, I concluded, was someone at least 1 generation older. Maybe an aunt.
At first the conversation was cheerful, updating about recent events in her life and so on. This person had her back to me, but the tone of her voice suggested she was smiling during that conversation.
Suddenly there was a long silence (I think the person on the other end was speaking)…and I saw how the recipients’ shoulders slowly sank. Her head hung low. Her voice became smaller and shaky.
I wonder what was said that made her seem so defeated.
At the end of the conversation, she wiped a little tear at the corner of one eye, shook her hair and walked back to her family, head up high. She went back to her loud cheerful mode as if nothing happened.
Maybe she thought no one saw it. I did.
So happy that now I found a way to post from anywhere I happen to be.
Hanya sedikit iri, karena wordpress sekarang punya app wordpress for i-phone, sedangkan aku tak punya i-phone dan gadgetku sekarang ini sepertinya tidak ada app wordpressnya.
Tak apalah. Setidaknya masih bisa lewat m.wordpress.com
On monday I began the week reluctantly, posting on my YM status : back to reality (this is supposed to be read with a lazy oh-no-do-we-really-have-to-start-all-over-again tone).
A friend tried to lift my spirits, but failed since my sombre mood was too stubborn, as shown by the following conversation:
Friend: reality is a matter of perception
Me : Yes
I just happen to perceive it as a black hole that eats up my soul
Friend : you sick dark gothic gurl
Me : 🙂
It’s great to have friends that know they won’t succeed cheering you up but still try anyway. Thanks, friend!
