Fake Albums are great but I've always fancied getting my teeth into a book...
Based on the last Facebook set up here's some links I've put together:
To design an FBC (Fake Book Cover)
2 - Go to the "Random Title Generator" - http://mdbenoit.com/rtg.htm and click “Give me Some Titles” - choose a title for your book.
3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” http://flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ choose an image to suit or hit “reload” until inspiration hits – this will be your cover image.
I'll post some examples soon:
in the meantime - enjoy this little cut-up I made:

The whole "create a fake album" has me hooked. It's so damn simple and great fun for nerdy designer types like myself.
the "rules" are these:
1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random... Read More”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to "Random quotations"
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
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 http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.
then you're supposed to tag people on facebook and get them to do it too but I ignore that bit...
Now - I hate hard and fast meme rules - especially when it comes to the third one - so my new version is "pick any image off that page" (why do so many flickr denizens take shots of flowers?)
Here's a compilation of the albums so far. Click for a bigger version.

Addicted? You betcha...
