The Vinyl Record Cover Game: Mindless Facebook Fun
The latest music related meme on Facebook is the album cover art game. If you feel the itch to join and create some cover art this is the way it should be done:
1. Go to “Wikipedia” and 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 with this text in the “caption” and TAG the friends you want to join in.
To check out some of the album covers that have been made so far head over to the Fake Albums or the Album Cover Aficionados group on Facebook. There’s also a group on Flickr.
