Album Cover Game

Recommended Posts

Some "fun" if you have 10 minutes to spare.

1 - Go to wikipedia.com. Select English and click on random article. (Or click here Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to the Random quotations website at Random Quotes - The Quotations Page

The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page quote is the title of your first album.

(if it ihas already been used, click on the "10 more random quotes" bit at the bottom of the page.)

3 - Go to Flickr and click on explore the last seven days

or click Flickr: Explore interesting photos from the last 7 days in FlickrLand...

Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

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

My result:

4328690096_98b8d2a1febbbb.jpg

I'm thinking a laid back electronica groove, like Morcheeba or something.

You can expand this to track listings using 10 or so wikipedia random articles.

Obviously you can do anything you like, that's just a suggestion based on a previous game.

What can I download for free that is like photoshop? Paint doesn't cut it.

Yeah GIMP is the shit, well worth downloading but it's fucking tricky to get the hang of. That's what I used for mine (and for Cobra Kai's EP covers tbh) Get it at filehippo.com.

I done another one, because I can. This one is strictly hardcore. I added the colon myself to make it cooler.

I used Photobucket, because Flickr wouldn't let me download their images, for some reason.

Damn you guys really have alot of spare time.

Whoever comes up with the best obviously has to form a band and release a cd with the bandname,album and tracklist.
