The Random Album Generator

Facebook has some really cool things come across from time to time. The latest is the random album cover generator. The world-famous "Jon from Richmond, VA, USA" passed this onto me, and my first thought was, "Wait...he MADE albums. Maybe this would be for his solo album or spinoff band!" Anyway, the rules are simple:

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random... Read More”
or click
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to "Random quotations"
or click
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
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

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

I would recommend being somewhat selective. I don't remember the specifics but my first try seemed just wrong (or inappropriate).

As for my final result, I like the picture (and wish I had made note of the photographer to give proper bad, and I apologize). Otherwise, I hate it for a band since it looks like I just made an album cover for a Kenny G tribute.

Then again, I opined that the music was really Hip Hip. Or thrash metal. Or maybe a lame current "alternative" band (I sense a rant coming...I'll stop).
