I remember seeing this Facebook game a year ago. It was tempting, but I didn’t have the time…or, more correctly, I didn’t want to take the time to have the time to play it. Besides these things are either really quite amusing or absolutely irritating beyond words to people whose bandwidth you absorb when these things post on the Newsfeed craving attention like a two-year-old on a sugar high.
The game went away, and has recently resurfaced (at least among some of my FBfriends). Here’s how the game plays:
Create Your Band and Their Debut Album
1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 – Go to “Random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
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”
or click on http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.
