1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
or click
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to "Random quotations"
or click
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
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

I cheated a bit. I had to shorten my quote to get it to fit onto the image. The actual quote was, "...not by strength, but perserverence". Perseverence is just too long a word.

The picture is from flickr. The dragon is my own addition as it goes with the band name. Draco melanopogon is the name of a flying lizard in Southeast Asia. This is obviously a prog album!

It Underestimates Youth

The full quote comes from Harry Potter:
"Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth."

I think I like that.
