Good day hello good evening good morning good afternoon to you all!
How is everyone?
So it's only a few days until I'm back in the land of University. After that it's out into the big wide world I go. What a scary thought!
For this post I thought we'd try a little game/competition thing. This may, or may not work. As is the case with most things!
This is one that has been circulating for a while, but it's quite good fun. I've done it once before...now listening carefully. ;)
We are going to...CREATE OUR OWN ALBUM COVERS! Wooo!!! (Really, I can hear your cheers from here.)
The idea is...that you send your randomly generated album cover to me, I'll post it here on the blog, and we vote for the best one in the comments section. Then I will compose a song that I feel fits the style of the album cover! Just a bit of fun really. :) If you wish to partake, please complete the following steps...
1. Go to Wikipedia and select "Random"...or just follow this link to do exactly the same: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article that comes up is the name of your band.
2. Now visit this page, http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 scroll to the bottom, and click "New Random Quotations"
The last four OR five words of the last quote on the page make up your album title.
3. Now visit this page, http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days and no matter what it is...
The third picture along is the one for your album cover.
4. Now put all the different elements together, using something like Photoshop, Microsoft Word, Pages, PowerPoint - anything that allows you to do so.*
5. Send your completed album cover (don't be shy!) to me via Facebook (just click the tab at the top of the blog that says Facebook) or email it to me if you already have my address!
And that's it! Please send me your album cover by January 13th, and if you have any problems, please write them in the comments section below.
As I said...don't be shy! We'll all have a good giggle together in the comments section I imagine! ;)
Good luck and I hope to see some truly awkward, hilarious, cute, sophisticated album covers very soon. ;)
Lots of love xxxxxxxxx
*(If you don't have any of this software, fear not! Just send me the links to your band name, title, and photo, and I'll put them all together for you. - You can reach me by email, of just send me a message via Facebook. :))
