Too much fun to pass up, from [livejournal.com profile] jendaby.

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit "random" 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 Quotations Page and select "random quotations" or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

The last four or five words of the very last quote on 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.



I...I kinda like this, actually. Feels a bit late 80s from my 10-minute graphic design, but hey, you know?

This is awesome!!! I love it! :) *hugs*
I was just thinking about you, and here you have an album and everything!
I think my band must sound kind of like Morrissey and I Am Kloot. Since your's is Late 80's, what does it sound like? ;)

I think it sounds like that last-gasp REM indie music genre, smart but laid-back lyrics, glowing guitars a-la Sundays. Not incisively witty enough to compare to XTC. More ponderous, more flight-of-fancy.

I used to know bands like that, but I can't think of them off the top of my head at the moment.

Not bad--I like the band name and cover image, they work nicely together. The title's okay.


So where is your BBC script? Hm? Get it in gear, missy? :)

Aw, I really liked the title. It's from a Chinese proverb: want to know what the road's like ahead? Ask those coming back.

I lucked the heck out on the picture. And I thought the band name was a bit too long, but it's just the kind of thing to get reduced to a fun acronym. MP-MP-US! Very chantable.

I like the proverb (hadn't heard it before, but it's cool), I'm just not wild about it as the title of this album. :)

And yes, the band name is a bit long--after the second album they should just shorten it to "Most Prominent."

I've heard that was a problem. Like I said, I lucked the heck out with my image...
