Title: Your Band's New Album
Post by: Interrobang on August 05, 2008, 04:10:44 pm
Ok, so here's pretty much the deal:

Quote
Simple idea really, follow these three steps:
1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random - the article you get will be your band's name.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 - the last four words of the last quote will be your album name (you'll need to refresh this page each time you want a new album name).

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ - and the third picture will be your album cover.*

If you aren't allowed to download your flickr pic just view the source and search for 'src="http://farm' and you'll uncover the url. Eg. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3215/2699654347_7bac7e3c01.jpg?v=0

Examples:

(http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j200/Qoder/newalbum.jpg)
(http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j200/Qoder/newalbum2.jpg)

Except maybe use something better than paint?

Title: Your debut album
Post by: huggkruka on August 16, 2008, 02:12:07 pm
You might have seen this before, since it's a ripoff of another forum, but I thought it was really entertaining. Here's what you do.

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

This will be the name of your band.

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

The last four words of the last quote on the page is your album name.

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

The third picture, no matter what, is your album cover.

Here I go:

Quad core - The Shame of Art

(http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/5677/quadcoreft1.jpg)

I imagine this is a 10-person group living in a collective, playing Slovenian-style synth beats.

EDIT: Had to photoshop that one.

Felix Dias Bandaranaike - A God or Not

(http://i36.tinypic.com/2lcwj8j.jpg)

The name of this band is way too weird.

I LOVE it!

Great game!

EDIT - Apparently this is already a forum game on this forum.

Oh, sorry, my bad. "debut" and "album" yielded no results - merge away mods.

That's not how you do it.  You're supposed to edit the words on to the picture.  See above for examples.

Good enough to be real, I say. In fact, if I ever start a band, this would be our first album.

Bent the rules a bit by using the last 5 letters, but otherwise it sounded weird.

Not too bad...

By the by, recently in Morocco, a mate and I decided that a good name for an album would be "bananas in Marrakesh"

Edit: another one

Title: Make an album cover.
Post by: Slartibartfast on February 26, 2009, 06:39:12 am
Instructions:
1 - Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random, or just go to Wikipedia and hit “random.” The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 (Random quotations). 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. The third picture, no matter what it is, is your album cover.

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

5 - Post it

Should we revive the old one?

It is over two months old though... :-[
Title: Re: Make an album cover.
Post by: Skyward on February 26, 2009, 04:15:18 pm
two months isn't that much, some games here were revived when they were even older, just give it time and a MOD will merge them.
