Randomized Album Covers

I got this idea from facebook.

Here were the directions:
1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random”
or click
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations" or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.
*Note, at the bottom of the page, check all of the boxes, and click New Random Quotations.*

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.

This is the first one I a made which I posted to facebook:
I liked the idea a lot and decided to make more. Some pictures and artist names and album titles at first seem like they don't really go together, since it is random, but I found that the type you use, design/layout, and any artistic input you have really can make it look like an actual album cover.

I really enjoyed doing these, and probably will add some more at some point.

If you have the time, make some, they're fun. If you want, you could email me yours and I might post them.
