Automatic album art with a little help from Flick-ipedia


Noise Addicts posted this effective recipe for near-automatic generation of album artwork (though it does allow for some creative typesetting) –

1. Go to Wikipedia and hit “random” and the first article you get is the name of your band.

2. Go to “Random Quotations”. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page will be the title of your new album.

3. Go to Flickr and click on “Explore the Last Seven Days”. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Give it a go – the results can be eerily convincing. Plus – it’s a quick and easy fix when you get the creative urge at the office/library/etc. Man … I could swear my cousin had that Stutz Blackhawk album back in the day.
