Album meme....  
Snafooed from jinxed_wood
 
1) Go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The article title is the name of your band.
2) Go to: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The final four words of the last quote on your page are the title of your album.
3) Go to: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The FOURTH image on the page is your album cover.
4) Design your cover. Layout and presentation are up to you.
5) Post your cover, along with these instructions.
 
I gave it a go, not being overly artistic, and I think I lucked out. I got a pretty good name and title and a perfect picture, and I swear I didn’t cheat:
  
Rather by your friends
by Chevalier Family
 
 
 
 (The title comes from "Do not protect yourself by a fence, but rather by your friends". A Czech proverb which I think is something we can all live by)
And, because I'm overly enthusiastic and it seemed a good idea at the time, I've done a track listing by taking the last four words from other quotes on the same page:

1) take care of themselves                       6) to speak in public
2) of the human race                              7) do act get going
3) too afraid to laugh                               8) humour renders life impossible
4) indispensable part of happiness           9) a man is uninteresting
5) he comes to it                                   10) sooner die than think

I'm thinking angsty emo-rock Radiohead style songs. What does anyone else think?
The worrying thing is that I really like it, and if I ever decide to go back to music, and manage to get to the album making stage, I may even use it. *grin*

[Grins] well, it definitely reads like a songlist! I think that one of your own guesses, on someone else's meme, might fit it better, though - Manic Street Preachers!

LOL

Actually, you're right, especially sooner die than think that definitely sounds like something they'd write. :)

That really does read like a track listing *lol* Clearly you have cracked the Radiohead code! The cover's great too - fits the words quite nicely :)

Yeah, I really got lucky with that photo.

LOL I can just see Thom YorkieBar doing this meme *grin*

When I was in sixth form, I was in a band that we decided to name The Karma Police. About a month later OK Computer came out and (as you probably know) there's a track on it called Karma Police! Spooky coincidence or strange psychic connection to one of the band?
