Fake Covers  Reply with quote  

This is pretty big on another board I frequent. Check it.


CREATE YOUR BAND NAME & ALBUM COVER:

To Do This

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 Quotations Page and select "random quotations"
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote on 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.

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

5 - Post/Write a new note from your Facebook Profile and under "more options" add photo and upload! Tag your friends to share.

It's really a lot of fun. Post your results so we call all see who is good at this and who sucks. Smile Also, should somebody want to use the opportunity to create some alternate Christopher Moore covers, that too would probably be super-awesome. Just a suggestion. Smile

I've done one for myself and one for my wife but just using Gimp since I don't have Photoshop on this laptop. Some of my friends have done some great ones but surprisingly they all look like album covers.

Again, kinda lame.

These random generators don't seem to like me.

I always wondered where the fruit is myself...

Is it as lame as this?



I think not! Laughing

I love this game. I wanna do this for a living! Razz

I think this one turned out okay, although I have to admit to not following the rules. The first random Wikipedia article that came up was: "Now, That's what I Call Music"

I decided I didn't want to use an exsisting album for this.

Ooh, fun! And since it's just for fun, I don't need to be a total type nazi over it.



Don't have Facebook so I used Photobucket.

I also elected to use a second random Wiki article--in my case because the first one's title was absurdly long to the point I can't even remember what it was. Some Indian political group.

Wiki article
Quotation
Flikr photo

I don't do facebook either, so I also use photobucket.








Wiki Article
Random Quote
Flikr Photo

I edited the photo down to make it the correct dimentions for an album cover.
