Got this from Tragic Antihero on Facebook via Mark Brooks…
Part of Mark Brooks’ plan to take over the internet, this cd cover exercise is a fun way to blow-off a little steam and create something that might just surprise you.
I hope all is well and this message finds you all in great spirits and even better health, and in the mood to create . . . if you have a few minutes to spare, and are so inclined, please participate in our social networking experiment.
This is super fun and extremely random. Ever wanted to be in a band and wonder what your CD cover would look like? Try it, you might be surprised with what you come up with!
Attention friends with basic Photoshop skills.
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 “Random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
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
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use Photoshop (or similar) to put it all together.
5 – Post it to Facebook as a note and tag the friends you want to join in.
Here’s my 1st try…

“Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.”
