Make your band's first album cover

Ok...I got this from another website. It's hella funny stuff. It reminds me of that old "make your porn star name" game.

Time to make your band's first album cover.

1 - Go to wikipedia. Hit "random".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.


2 - Go to Random quotations:

http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

Click the "new random quotations" at the bottom of the page. The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.


3 - Go to flickr and click on "explore the last seven days"

http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/

Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.


4 - Use photoshop or similar (all I have is Paint) to mix it all up. Post here.


Here's mine:

Obviously Aunt Millie had a tremendous influence on the band, even submitting one of her handsewn crafts for the cover art.

It's pretty impressive how well this works. Maybe this is how independent artists have been coming up with names and album covers for years.

I think we probably sound a lot like Interpol.



*edit* I broke the rules by using the whole quote and picking my favorite quote and favorite picture on the page. Better try again. Hold please.

Obviously I got rid of the Aunt Millie influence by joining another band ...
