Create your album art in 4 steps
« on: January 08, 2011, 09:24:37 PM »
I found this on facebook:

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. 3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”. 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. 5 - Post it with this text in the caption.

It would be funny to make a series of "nearly released albums"
This is my creation:

I hope that the bloke who's photo I used doesn't mind, but this looks a bit promising?

Came out kinda cool actually! I'm thinking of keeping the name to use for an up coming project.

Crochet? So near to being very musical :P

I can't believe there's no album called crotchet :|

My personal favourite is the cemetary one and roger g's (particularly awesome album name for the picture)

Ahh, the forerunner to their seminal "Being Blue". They seemed to fizzle out after that for some reason.

@TA: One of the last places my Dad worked at was called Mole Valley Farmers.  Odd to see that pop-up. :)
