Here's great game I've lifted from the Mail Watcher website.

You follow the three steps below to generate a random album cover.

First:

1). Click on the link below. The name of the first article on the first page is the name of your band (or your new artist name):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random

2). Scroll down to the last quote on the page that this next link leads to. The last four words of the final quote are the album title:

http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

Lastly:

3). Click on the last link. The third picture on that page, no matter what it shows, will be your album cover:

http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/

Then you put them all together to make your band's album cover. (You don't have to worry if you don't have Photoshop or any other fancy software to do it with, I didn't either).

I did it, and this was the result:



Scandinavian...possibly Danish. I'm sure there are others here who could come up with much better looking efforts.

Band name: Football League of Ireland 1989-90
Album title: Them. Don't betray them.
Cover art: Called Red Rain

The picture is gorgeous. I just can't figure out how to put the image on here. But I think my band's name is terrible. The title isn't bad, but the cover is swell.

Yes that is a nice picture, I think the easiest way to add the text is to do what I did, and right-click/save the picture to your computer, and then use whatever photo edit software you have built in to add the text, using a text box or two, (I only have Paint).

Then to show it here, you can save the result in Photobucket or a similar photo site, then use the "Generate HTML" function (or whatever the site you use does) to add it to the forum so it can be seen.

A lot of work however for those who don't already have a free account with Photobucket or some such site I suppose.

I have an account with Flickr. Maybe that would work. I'll try to give it a try.

Not to bad, it could be that I could perhaps maybe possibly conceivably consider to consider to but it.

Beautiful thing, the destruction of words.
