Stealing From Mike

I'm stealing this post from Mike, who in turn stole it from someone else, and so on and so forth.  It's a fun little way to kill some time if you've got some.  It's the "Create Your Album Cover" game.  It's kind of like coming up with your porn star name, but more visual and it's repeatable.Here's how it works:

Step 1) Go to the Wikipedia Random Article Generator. The first article that comes up is the name of your band.

Step 2) Go to the Random Quotations Page
. The last four words of the very last quote on the page is the name of your album.

Step 3) Go to Flickr's "Explore the Last Seven Days" Page
. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Step 4) Add them all together in Photoshop, and that's your debut album.

Here's mine:
I admit, I cheated a little on the picture.  But the first picture that came up was borderline obscene (a lot of side boob), and while I was fine with it, I didn't want to offend anyone's sensibilities.  I did NOT however cheat on the name "Waltograph."  That's actually the first thing that came up.  It's the name of a Disney-inspired font.  I used the Waltograph font for the band title, and Ravenscroft (made by the same people, based on Haunted Mansion) for the album title.  If I had a band, I might actually call them Waltograph.
