TUESDAY HEADS: Tune Meme


Heads Or Tails

I have been watching the Heads and Tails blog trying to figure out how this thing works.
I am kind of new to the blogging thing, anyway. But real new to memes.

OK, so, a word is given and a post is made around that word...Do I have that right? It can be photos or words or whatever?
OK this weeks word is "tune".Make any kind of post using the theme/prompt "Tune."

Well I thought and thought...this is certainly hard. I am really not tuned in enough, I guess, to get it.. I am not even tuned in enough to know what a MEME is.
I tried to think about the word TUNE and I really didn't feel that it ("tune") is very relevant in my life. But, then I realized that even though I am apparently tuned out, I have to sometimes be tuned in, tuned out, out of tune, and/or in tune, every day of my life. Every day I listen to a tune on the radio or on my PC. Occasionally, I hum a little tune while I piddle around the house. Didn't the dwarfs whistle a happy tune? Didn't Yoko sing completely off tune? And isn't Donald Trump completely out of tune with the world of hair design? Or maybe that would be " touch " instead of tune, which is a whole other topic!
Everyday, someone is tuned in to Oprah. On any day I will tune out Larry King.
If you play an instrument you have to have it tuned sometimes. If I play an instrument, I guarantee I'll be out of tune whether its been tuned or not.

Well, now this may not be what you had in mind for the heads post. So stay tuned, maybe next week I'll get with the program and figure out what to do with the Heads or Tails word for the day. So see you then.
In the meantime, I'll be taking my car in for a tune up.

You are welcome to critique my use of the heads and tails anytime. I never quit learning...sometimes I am just a bit slower than I used to be, though! :)

OH, and BTW, WHO is Mr Linkie and where do I go to meet him :)

Hahahaa.. I LOVED this fun post! You post like an old pro. :)

I hope you'll keep playing!

Yoko? *twitch*

Mr. Linkie is a thingy where you put a code in your HTML and then a thingy shows up where people can sign in just using the URL of the post. I love when I talk all techie.

Lani said...

I love your techie talk TOO.... And uh I am not sure where your putting your thingy but I am pretty sure I wasn't clear where I should be putting mine and do I have a thingy?
and thanks for commenting! I will have to be a player now, won't I? :-)

Not Yoko... PS Take care of that twitch!

You don't have a thingy? I used to but it's gone. I wonder which is worse? :P

Lani said...

joyce said...

thanks for visiting my blog. I was wondering what a "meme" was....I had heard it mentioned once. How do I get involved in the meme of the week? I think yours is great....interesting enough to follow all the way through.

Lani said...

thanks for writing Joyce and for your very nice comments..I had fun doing these memes...too much fun...
here are the web addresses of the 3 I do : check them out! this one is called heads or tails (hot)...tou'll enjoy it.
http://headsortailshome.blogspot.com/
http://sundaystealing.blogspot.com/

http://samanthasaturday9.blogspot.com/

they have the rules on their pages and when you do the meme you feel out a box (mr Linky) on their websites for you to put your name and blog address in to get on the list for that day.
If you have any questions...just let me know! OR ask on the web pages...those are the experts on the subject :-)

It isn't actually a Carribean Center...it is a festival we have every year called Mosaic..each country involved puts up a center where they display their music, food, beverages, and they put on performances...It is alot of fun..and covers all of our city. it costs about 12 a person..and then food..that guy is kind of creepy...and he never stops moving..but he is awesome!..I will be putting up more video of him in the next few days. If you read further down my home blog, you will see that I highlighted the phillipino pavillion this year..

Thanks for visiting! Great to meet a new blogger!

Karen said...

Ooops - let me try this again -- it's late and my brain is wacky.

So, Yay - love your blog :) Thanks for stopping by today -- The images you were asking about in my header etc. were little projects I took on using vectors. I actually had to draw/trace them freehand in Illustrator/Photoshop. Pretty tedious work, but fun! I'm off to go follow you now :)

Lani said...

thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog!!! and especially thanks for taking the time on answering my question about your images. I can do some vectoring on my PSP but never learned this. I spend hours looking for tutorials for PSP in vectoring a year or more ago...never found it so do my own thing by adding posturizing to the image.
well anyway you do an awesome job and your website is amazing...it goes on and on and on...whew...you did a lot of work on that!!
Hugs
