Thanks to Scott for showing me this game (and of course whoever came up with it). It's a lot of fun! Just follow these simple instructions to create imaginary music albums:

Quote:
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.

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


I'll post a few of the ones I did later when I have a little more time. 8-)

Of course, you're supposed to do it randomly, and my first few are random, but it can be even more fun if you refresh the pages until you get something interesting, or that matches up with one of the other pieces you got.

That is excruciatingly awesome and much better than 99% of real albums.

Seems like too much work for me to try my hand at it though...

Too much work? You click three links. Are you not up to the challenge of creating a text box in Microsoft Paint? :P

THREE links!? Paint crafting!? I'm just trying to be entertained, I'm not running for... Hedonismbot. Wait... I'm just trying to do stuff, I'm not running for Do-Stuff-Man. Do stuff man is a guy who does a lot of stuff.

I understand your reluctance to do stuff - I am a sloth after all - but it's no more difficult than making a three track recording.

Some would argue that it's less difficult.

You can, of course, elaborate on the original picture and make it more album-y, but that's optional. In its natural state, this is probably one of the least difficult memes out there!

I would, in fact, be one of those people.

One of the easiest memes? In my experience most mems are a picture somebody posts that I look at and then laugh. I'd say this is harder. :P

P.S. I herd u liek mudkips.
