The Art of Darkness

Fun with Randomizers

February 26th, 2009 by Cobwebs

Album CoverHm. I’ve got the cool British band name, but somewhere I apparently veered into synthpop.

This meme was making the rounds about a year ago, and in the everything-old-is-new-again manner of the blogosphere, it’s recently reemerged. I’m pressed for content today, so I’ll wimp out and get on the meme bandwagon.

To come up with your own band’s CD cover, do the following:

  1. Go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The first article that pops up is the name of your band. I wound up with an Iron Age hill fort.
  2. Now go here: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3. The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album. I wound up with Thomas Jefferson’s “In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.”
  3. Then go here: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/. The third picture on the page is your album cover. I unfortunately killed the window before getting the photographer’s name, so I apologize random Flickr user, for not crediting your picture. I can assure you that it wasn’t an attempt to pass it off as my own.
  4. Finally, use the graphics program of your choice to put them all together. For extra credit, write a Rolling Stone review about the album.

    I’ve done this before, but not with album covers, with album track lists.
