Back in high school, I and a few of my buddies were going to start a band
. Something so epic deserves italics and, of course, a kickass band name. I sat down one day trying to come up with some possibilities, and almost immediately I crafted Nature's Mishap
I also wrote down a few other piddling excuses for band names for the others to choose from, but they loved Nature's Mishap right off the bat and the rest weren't even a consideration. Though we never did end up actually starting a band
, we've used the NM name for various other ventures over the intervening years.
More recently, I took part in a little forum game that involved making random album covers. I don't remember the exact rules, but it involved using random selectors on Wikipedia, a quote database, and an image repository. I ended up with:
Which I thought was pretty cool.
