Apparently, this little trick has been going around the intertubes these past few days. I learned about it here (http://www.avclub.com/articles/meme-time-wikipedia-names-your-band,24139/).

The basic idea is:

1) Go to Wikipedia and get a "random" article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random). That's your band name, like it or not.

2) Get a list of random quotes (http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3) from Quotation Page. The last four or five words of the last quotation on the page are your album title.

3) Go to Flicker's "Explore the Last Seven Days (http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days)" and pick the third picture. That's your album cover.

4) Bonus points for mocking up the album cover with the title and band name. :D

When I just tried it, it turned out pretty cool, if I do say so myself. My band is Timoleague (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timoleague) and our album is "Pleasing People That I Despise (http://www.quotationspage.com/quote/1323.html)". The album cover came from this picture (http://www.flickr.com/photos/essencedevanille/3292766197/).

Your turn...

It was pretty freaky when Painkiller came up. It's one of our "signature" cocktails on the boat, and I've been working on a song about them...

haha omg! i just did this on facebook. although, not gonna lie, i kept refreshing the seven page thing but i did use the third picture!

and on facebook i added an extra step to figure out who'd be in the band by typing in a letter tot the search thing, but it doesnt work like that here...and the names wouldn't mean anything.

Depends on what you're using, but they should all be similar.

File > Save As...

Then choose the file type in the drop-down menu below the file name and find JPEG/JPG or something similar.

Thank you! I had trouble fitting the band name into the picture, so I had to put all the words in different text boxes. And you can hardly read the album title, probably because of the color

IMO that picture is very good fitting. only the beginning sounds somehow like doomsday and those clouds over the dry lake fit very well
