Truly, a simple meme

The Rock Band Meme (stolen from a bunch of people – it seems to be everywhere) works like this:

First, go here –

The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

Then go here –

The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
Then, put it all together in whatever graphics editing software you like, and turn it into an album cover, such as:
The article title/band name is some sort of video game, but could be a shortened version of “True Simplicity” which makes it go very nicely with the portion of the quote, ‘more important than knowledge.’ And the title of the picture is ‘rain,rain,rain’ which I like too.
So, now I can cross this off the list of self-tagging memes I mean to do. If you are ready for spring to arrive, consider yourself tagged!
