No, I didn’t sign up with any record label or anything like that. But it sounds cool, doesn’t it? Anyway, this is an entertaining activity for all you weekend warriors out there! Do you want to find out your prospective band name and how to create your own simple album cover? Sure it’s not gonna be on any music bar’s CD shelves anytime soon but, hey, it is fun! Here are the steps:

1. Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page and click on “Random Article.” The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2. Go to http://quotationspage.com/ and click on “Random Quotes.” The last few words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3. Go to http://www.flickr.com/explore/ and click on “Interesting photos from the last seven days.” The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. And in case you decide to post the final product, even if we’re just doing this for fun, don’t forget to acknowledge whoever owns the original image!

4. Use Photoshop to put it all together.

5. And voila, you’ve got your band’s CD album cover!

And here’s mine:

 

Band name: Woodpecker Cider
Album name: “…You need the drive” from Eric A. Burns
Album photo: “Yo Confieso” by Santidd 

Note: Got this from Oscar De La Hopia and Chico Garcia’s blog (which he got from mokong’s blog).
