Album Covers - the Game

For those of you who don't know, there's this new game on the internets.

1 - Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “Random Article”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random

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

2 - Go to “Random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five 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”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop/MS Paint or similar to put it all together.

5 - Share with all your friends!

I finally got around to doing it and here's mine. It came together so perfectly, I felt the sheer emo / post-punk - ness of it all. I think I need a sweater.

We'll be touring with Weezer and Death Cab and { insert nerdy math-rock band name here }

Where's your album cover at?
