My Quasi-Random Album March 6, 2009

Posted by Beth in Just for Fun.

Initially I wasn’t going to “play” but this ended up being a quick, fun diversion. The game is putting together a music album cover by “your” band. Give it a name, an image and song titles. Instructions follow my “album.”

A Different World


Song Titles:

1. My mind is my own church.  by Thomas Paine

2. Don’t betray them. by Robert Pollack

3. Delicious Ambiguity by Gilda Radner

4. Resemblance to the First by Ronald Reagan

5. With Diligence and Attention by Sir Francis Bacon

6. Real Money by Sen. Everett Dirkson

Here’s how to play:

If you’re curious about what your own randomly generated album cover would look like, here are the instructions found over at Gus Van Horn via 3 Ring Binder .

1 – Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random,” or click here. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. [My first was GTCO so I cheated and clicked til I got one I liked.]

2 – Go to “Random quotations” or click here. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. OR, if quotationspage.com is down, try going to Brainy Quotes and use the Quote of the Moment as your quote. [I decided to make a whole song set by taking the last few words of any quote that sounded like a good song title.]

3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click here. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. [OK –I cheated on this one too and just took one I liked.]

Yes, quasi-random would have been a better thing for me to say as well. I like your addition of song titles and that silver piece is pretty. I wonder if it means something.
