A Rainy Day’s Entertainment

Stephen Downes had a fun post in the ongoing CD Cover Meme, wherein one takes three random websites – a title, a quote, and a picture – and combines them to make an album cover (and his is great). Here’s mine (really!!!):


CD Cover Meme


(Quoting from Stephen but Instructions from David Davies):

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Now combine these elements in your favourite image editing package and you have your CD cover. There’s even a Flickr group for other people’s CD covers. Some are very good indeed.

Makes for an entertaining few minutes on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Try it!

  1. Thanks Britt for this meme! My students love it. I could explain the Creative Commons licences in a relaxant manner.

    Moreover I explore wikipedia, flickr and an online photo editor.

    Not all the picture are CC so we should be careful how to choose them. And give credit too.
