Temporary Cure for Boredom

It is said that idle hands are the devil's workshop.

I don't think of mine so much as a workshop but more
of a recreational center. I am far too lazy to live up to
the title of workshop.

Recently, a friend of mine sent me an interesting project
via facebook. Yes, yes...you may snicker all you like - I
was coerced into signing up for facebook.

Anyway, this project was just what I needed to alleviate
my boredom and have a few chuckles in the process.

Here is how it works:

Go to Wikipedia and hit Random Article
The title of that article is the name of your new band.

Go to Wikiquote and hit Random Page
Scan down to the last quote on the page. The last
three to five words of that quote become the title
of your first album.

Go to Flickr and click on Last 7 Days. The
third picture - no matter what it is - is your
album cover.

Use Photoshop or some other photo editing program
to put it all together and then you post it on facebook,
tag your friends with the picture and try to get them to
do the same.

Interesting, fun, and probably a lot better than most of the
bands out there.

Give it a try - let me know how it turns out.

You will find mine (Plan Z) and a good friend of mine's below -
just to give you an example.


Enjoy.

You used mine as an example? lol.

I like yours though - it looks like an actual album.

Heh, I did this a while back, but I can't find it any more. I'll do a new one, put it on Facebook, and tag you. =)
