Let’s Create An Album Cover

Over at THE Edward Hotspur’s blog he came up with a fun little diddy to do with your (spare) time, it’s called Let’s Create An Album Cover. This is how you do it:

1) Go to Wikipedia. Click on Random Article. The title of this article is your band’s name. You could refresh if the title is especially hideous.

2) Choose a number between 3 and 7, inclusive. Go to Google searching for Random Quotes. Randomly click on an entry on the first page, and once on the page, go down the number you picked. That’s your quote. Choose consecutive words anywhere in that quote equal to the number you picked. That’s your album title.

3) Go to Google again and insert the words you didn’t use for your album title. Search for large images. Go down 6 rows. Choose the first picture that doesn’t already have words on it. That’s your album pic.

4) Go to Pixlr. Edit together your picture, band name and album title. There’s your album cover! Then put it in the comments, or make your own post. If you don’t want to use Pixlr, use whatever you want.

This is what I came up with:

Random Article: Monolith
Random Number: 3
Random Quote: Natural Selection is Anything but Random Picture: The remaining words from the quote were Natural Selection is.

And here’s my album cover (Hi Monolith!):

Album Cover 1

This was actually quite fun and I had no clue Pixlr was out there.  You learn something new everyday!  Thanks Mr. Hotspur!

Now how do I make royalties off this?  HA!

  1. Oh, that’s so cool! I never have much luck with these things. You know the one where you find your prostitute name by combining your first pet’s name with the name of the street you grew up on? My name came up Suzie 14th. Bleh!
