There are a lot of 25 things about you/what your iPod on shuffle reveals about you/wanna-be viral chain letter things floating around the interweb. I hadn’t felt compelled to participate in one until this weekend when I stumbled upon one that makes use of Photoshop. And if history is any indicator, you all know I like to tool around in Photoshop. It’s an “if you were to have a band and put out an album, what would your cd/cover art look like” sort of thing.
Anyway, I did it… here’s mine:
(In case you were wondering my band is named after Prokhor from Gorodets, a medieval Russian icon-painter, thought to have been the teacher of Andrei Rublev. The name for my debut album comes from a excerpt from Donald Trump’s brilliant book Art of the Deal. The full quote is.. “Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game.”)
Want to make your own?
- Go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random. The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
- Go to: 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.
- Go to: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
- Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.
