Create-A-Band Process

1. Go to the Random Article link on the Wikipedia front page. (You can find it in the top left navigation menu.) The title of the random article is your new band's name.

2. Go to the Random Quote link on the Quotations Page front page. (You can find it in the left side navigation menu.) You will get a list of random quotes. Pull either a full or partial quote from that page. That is the album title for your band's latest release. (You might also find some song titles this way as well.)

3. Go to Flickr and click on the 'Interesting Uploads from the Last 7 Days' link. (You can find it by scrolling down and looking beside the 'Take the Tour' link.)

4. Pull that information together and then use a word processor like Pages or Word, a photo editor like iPhoto or Gimp, or any other application that lets you manipulate words and images, and create your album cover.

While doing the above, think about what genre your band performs. Who is in your band? Where do they play? What is the history behind them? Etc. Try to create a world for your band.
