A Game

Copied directly from everybody's favorite Irish music hobbyist forum:

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

You can actually get some strangely workable results from this. For example, here's the cover of And Those Who Don't, the someday-to-be-released album by my as-yet-unformed band Embroynal Carcinoma:



Update. Oooh. Here's Other Things than Power by Composite Superman:

What's the full name of the album, People Who Need to Worry About Wayward Body Jewelry Slipping Out of Their Pants (And Those Who Don't)?

And how many trips through this generator do you think it would take to come up with Derek Bell Plays With Himself? (And BTW, there's one guy I really wish would have done a cover of Detachable Penis before he died...)

African Piculet
Mastery of His Passions

--and the photo is a disturbing picture of a small child of indeterminate gender.

To Bite People Themselves

Here's the album cover

The picture and the name of the album actually kind of vaguely go together--that dog looks like he might bite people himself! And the band name actually seems like it could be a real band name. Overall, I'm quite pleased with my results. Expect to find our album in stores this fall!
