Design your album cover

Here are the rules:

1 – Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” or click The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to “Random quotations” or click 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 Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 – Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

    I don’t do PhotoShop. (I once said the same about Twitter, but this should stick. Half the time I edit photos — simple things like red eye and rotation — I am very grateful I was working on a copy.)

    The results are:
    Freedom (Erasure song)
    Makes it easier to connect (water splashing on rocks as tide comes in — really neat)

    I keep thinking there’s a deep insight there, like the seemingly-random results from the I Ching or astrology. What limits do we imposed on ourselves that make it difficult to connect, and what does reverse flow splashing have to do with it?

    Haha! Not sure if you can do HTML in here, if not, here’s a back up…

      Koneko, I can’t put images in the comments. I’ve tried. 🙁 There’s a button for it, but it doesn’t work.

      Cricket, here’s yours:

    Looks awesome! I like the colours you chose. The overall effect is natural and calming, despite the incoming storm. The spray of water is free of the rocks, and about to connect with the green. Cool! (Or sleep deprived. How come daughter could sleep the day away after keeping us up all night?) Suits the philosophical mood I’m often in.
