I ran into this meme when reading Juliafish‘s blog, and thought that the result was uncanny when thinking of album covers I’ve seen over the past (ahem, many) years.
This was quick to put together, and was entertaining. You should do one, just to see what randoms you get.
The meme goes as follows:
Create your own band and debut album cover randomly
To Do This:
1 – Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” or click Wikipedia Random
The first random Wikipedia article that comes up is the name of your band.
2 – Go to Quotations Page and select “random quotations” or click Quotations Random – The last four or five words of the very LAST quote on the page is the title of your first album.
3 – Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click Flickr 7day random – The third picture in the top row, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use Photoshop/GIMP or similar graphics program to put it all together.
5 – Post it to your preferred online outlet with this text in the “caption” or “comment” and TAG the friends you want to join in.
Here’s the first release from my new band.
