My Album Cover(s).

I got this from my mom who got this from a friend who got it from another friend who got it from who knows where.
It was on facebook.

Anyway, here is how to make your album cover:

1. Go to wikipedia and hit random. The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2. Go to quotationspage.com and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first ...album. (Edit: Three usually works best. :) )

3. Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” (or just go here http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days). Third picture (no matter what it is) will be your album cover.

4. Use photoshop or similar (picnik.com is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.




So, I cheated. Why? Because the first two pictures I got were of some random chick, and then a plastic halloween pumpkin respectively. So, I went until I found one that didn't consist of someone random, or something chintzy that looked like it was taken out of an Oriental Trading Co. catalog.
I also had to do a couple random Wikipedia pages, since the first few I got were stuff like "Alabama Lions' Club Women's Vollyball Team." which is kind of a mouthful... "What are you listening to?" "Alabama Lions' Club Women's Vollyball team." I don't think so.

Here is my cheaters cover:


Likey? I do.

And... Just for kicks, this is my completely-following-the-rules one:



That one looks cool too. xD So, I set out to see how random I could make mine...



This one I also cheated on- I changed the background image to be all funky colored.
So I must do another!
Oh dear!




Thereeee we go. Looks like a postcard, doesn't it? Yeah. And it makes a bit too much sense, even though "Manns Choice" is apparently a town in Pennsylvania.
Harrumph.


This one?
Looks sorta like a Christian band cover...
Shall we aceept it as last?
Nah!


That's a bit more random..
But let's see if we can get something REAAALLLLY strange, shall we?


Nooo!
These are too comprehensible!
I. Need. Strange!



Well, I'm starting to not understand..
Shall we attempt one (or two) more covers?
(I'm having waaay too much fun with this.)


Okay, I have to admit... This one was a hard one...
I think I'll finish there.
I'm dreading getting more black or white pictures...

Mine was so awesome ... I'll post it on my blog tomorrow. The band was Heroes and the album cover was "Essential for our Democracy." and the picture was of this angel of death. and it was awesome. XD
