Your First Album Cover in 4 Easy Steps

A friend sent me this today, and it's a great exercise, and brilliant fun too. Have a go following the 4 steps outlined below:

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
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.

Note: you can't always pull pics off flickr (some people have their photos locked and you'll get a spaceball.gif). In this case, just refresh and go for the third pic of the refreshed screen.

4 - Use Photoshop (or similar) to put it all together.

5 - Post it to Facebook as a note and tag the friends you want to join in (inc. me, 'cause I wanna see yours too...)
