Back when the old social network was bare and functional (as opposed to barely functional, as it is today), I had fun posting a lot of stupid things. Since my intention is never to use the place again, I've been slowly but surely archiving my past postings. Some of the stuff that I posted seems to be neither worth saving nor deserving of permanent deletion – when I run across stuff like this, I think to myself, "Hey, why not feed this stuff to the blog – that blog will eat anything." So I'm feeding the following fodder to my blog.
Below are a number of pictures. They are supposed to be record covers for nonexistent music groups whose names, album titles, and even cover photos were chosen by chance alone. A simple set of instructions telling how to create such record covers was circulated on the old social network as a form letter – these are the steps that I followed to make each image:
- Go to "Wikipedia.org" and click "random." The title of the first article to appear is the name of your band.
- Go to "QuotationsPage.com" and click "random quotes". The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your album.
- Go to "Flickr.com" and click on "explore". The third picture to appear, no matter what, is your album cover.
Record covers made by pure chance:
(I have no idea why I created so many; but I vaguely recall being bored that day.)
