    Create Your Own Album Cover

    Saw this on chiefsplanet.com and it looks pretty cool. Here's how it works:

    This is a blast! Use Random Bits of the web to come up with an eerily awesome album cover.
    This is a tiny bit labor intensive... But. If you have a moment, it's really quite fun!

    This will be your new album cover. It's no fun if you don't play along, so stick to the instructions buddy!

    1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
    or click [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random[/url]
    The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

    2 - Go to "Random quotations"
    or click [url]http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3[/url]
    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 [url]http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days[/url]
    Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

    4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together. (if you don't have it, here's an online photo editor: [url]www.picnik.com[/url])

    I'll put mine in the first post

    this could be fun. I am at work right now and can't dedicate the time to do it. But I may do it later this evening if my woman doesn't put out.
