The Next Big Thing

Shamelessly stolen from elsewhere, try this little exercise: come up with a band name, album title, and cover art using various websites. Here are the rules:

1 – Go to Wikipedia and hit random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 – Go to and hit random. 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 ( is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.
5 – Post it on your blog along with these instructions, and trackback or link to your post in these comments. Go. DO IT NOW. Or not.

For what it's worth, mine looks pretty badass. LA Urban Rangers. Looks like it could be trip hop like Portishead. And the title came from an Aldous Huxley quote: "Maybe this world is another planet's hell." Sounds like my kind of shizzle.
