Coming soon to an Open Source Album site near you!
OK, Nathan tagged me with this meme, and it actually came out kind of cool. Then I made it cooler.
Here are the rules:
1 – Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random,” or click:
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 – Go to “Random quotations” or
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
OR, if quotationspage.com is down, try going to Brainy Quotes:
http://www.brainyquote.com/ and use the Quote of the Moment as your quote.
3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click:
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use Photoshop (or similar) to put it all together.
5 – Pass the meme on. The original version called for tagging 25 people on Facebook; I think instead I’ll call out five recent commenters who have blogs (which are not all about Amway).
And here’s the “official” result:
I like the band name, I love the album title, but the picture… blah. ((The cropping seems to add something to it, but still, it doesn’t float my boat. ))
If I bend the rules a bit and take the second picture on the list, rather than the third, the result is darn good:
And, going one photo up on that Flickr user’s photostream, I found another that actually fits perfectly:
So there, three shots at the meme, and two of them pretty good.
