The New Chain Letter: Your Album Art

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit "random... Read More". The first random wikipedia 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 is the title of your first album.
3 - Go to flickr and click on "explore the last seven days". Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together. Then tag your Facebook friends to play.

I got this a while back and thought it was fun until my search yielded a totally lame album cover. Apparently, in my world, there is no music, only business negotiation audiobooks. (Or possibly smoking cessation) That being said, there's a couple reasons why this is viral:
-It's self-referential without being too vulnerable
-There are some funny results
-It encourages counter posts and dialogue. Try it.
Now I've just got to figure out a way to harness this for causes.
