Rusty named the band. I thought it was stupid, but I’m just the bass player so I went along. When we got the recording contract I floated the whole ‘can’t we change the name’ balloon, but Cameron and Forley had gotten used to it by now, their girlfriends had the tee shirts, we had a following, it was too late.
I swallowed my dissatisfaction.
But I believe in destiny. We were on our way to some bullshit meeting, you meet people, they gush, you forget their names. We broke down right under that sign. That fateful sign.
Hello, album cover.
Good take on it :) I liked itReplyDelete
Thank you! :-) I may edit to make it a little clearer that the band is called "No Smoking". Not sure yet. I may live with it for a day and then decide.Delete
Lovely story. It does look like an album cover. Re the edit - your decision.ReplyDelete
Thanks very much for reading and for the feedback, it's helpful. :-)Delete
I can see this happening. Makes as much sense as many other group or album titles. :-) Patrick's right; it does look like an album cover and I think the idea of the band name is clear enough without being spelled out.ReplyDelete
Thanks very much! :-) I think I'll leave it as is in that case. :-)Delete
This was a very different take on the photo and a good story. I enjoyed the humor.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed the voice in this story. Personally I think it's a great name for a band. ;)
OMG...would SO be a cool album cover. Good eye!ReplyDelete
Thank you :-) I think it actually reminds me of an album cover I have, I just don't know which one. I'd have to go through my collection and who has time for that? ;-)Delete
Excellent and a fateful engine problem! Good job! NanReplyDelete
Thank you very much :-)Delete
Haha, I enjoyed this. Interesting take on the prompt :)ReplyDelete
