Darn that Meme

Occasionally a meme comes along that takes you by the hoodangers and gives them a twirl.

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...
