The Wikipedia Band Game

Hello everyone!  Ruzzo is back from his long OF hiatus and is here bearing gifts and commodities from the outside world!
Lol I don't know where that came from...tongue

Anyways, I really am back and I'm here with a little game for all you photoshop/gimp/paint wizards to enjoy.  Everyone here should know how to use at least one of those three programs after playing this game haha.  Alright well here is the game...

Today, we are going to be making our own bands.  Our bands have made it big but there is just one tiny problem...WE DON"T HAVE A NAME!  And on top of all that, our first album is about to be released....AND WE DON"T HAVE A TITLE NOR A COVER!

But alas! There is a solution to this mess, you have the power of the internet!
Here are your instructions...

1 - Go to Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/special:random

The first article that comes up when you click the link is the name of your band. (If it makes sense of course)

2 - Go to Random quotations:
http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

The last three, four, or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. (Again, whatever makes sense)

3 - Go to Flickr:
http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/

Any picture on the page (your choice) will be your album cover.

4 - Go to photoshop/gimp/paint or similar:

Use cool text effects to make your album unique!
And that's all it takes!

Here are some examples of album covers I have made...

I am interested to see the creations some of you OFer's come up with. tongue
Ready, and......GO!

cool

Re: The Wikipedia Band Game

New tower for gaming (CoD 4 notably) so I need to install Gimp or Toshop before I can play this game.

Re: The Wikipedia Band Game

If I recall it right, a few years ago I could use cool text scripts directly within GIMP but I couldn't quickly find them now sad So I used cooltext.com...
