david.atwell Posted March 2, 2009 Share Posted March 2, 2009 Didn't know you had a band? Well, you do. Let's see what your first album cover looks like! 1. Click here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The title of the Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. 2. Click here: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 The last few words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album. 3. Click here: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days The third picture is your album cover. 4. Assemble the image using Paint.NET. Repeat step #2 ten times to get your track listing. Post your results. This could be a fun competition. Best submission wins a fabulous prize!* *Yet to be decided. Prize may not be what you deem as "fabulous." I don't care. EDIT - Some clarification: Can the cover image be edited? You can crop, recolor, flip, blur, distort, add to, and remove from it as long as it's still recognizable as part of the original image. You can even add images from other locations (stocks/renders) so long as at least 3/4 or more of it is recognizable as part of the original image. The key here is creativity in the face of some very strict guidelines. Also, keep in mind that if anything you come up with contains something that would break board policy to post (nudity, expletives, etc.) you must click the randomizer link in this post again for another random item. And here's my submission. You don't have to put yours in a Cover Flow background, but I thought it would be fun. (click for bigger) The Band: "Cifesa" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cifesa The Album Title: "The Great Fallacy" (quote: An expert is a person who avoids small error as he sweeps on to the grand fallacy. Benjamin Stolberg) Oops. I switched Grand for Great. Oh well. The Album Cover: Slightly edited, from here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rubin110/3302233230/ The Track Listing: 1. Looks Good, Feels Good 2. Always Found Them 3. As you Speak 4. Heroes 5. Good Time 6. Being Busy 7. Effective 8. I Understand Only Because I Love 9. With Them 10. Without Shame "But, David! If this is a contest, why isn't it in the GD&Q section?" Well, because right now, my image was made in Photoshop. It could have been done in PdN, but it wasn't. So not only is it ineligible for the contest, it really doesn't belong here at all - it's just posted as an example. I'll make a PdN example image later. EDIT: Okay, yeah, so this won't be much of a contest. There might be some voting later, but it'll probably stay pretty relaxed. I'll let you know if an actual competition comes up. Quote The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.Amy: But how did it end up in there?The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
