A bit of fun: CD covers

Although this is supposed to be a meme and I haven't been tagged, I thought it was a bit of fun, so I had a go. Nod to Grandad over at Head Rambles.

If you're a teacher, I thought it might be quite fun to set as an extension exercise in the classroom for those kids who finish their work early.

So this is the deal:
Go here. The first article title on the page is the name of your band.
Go here. The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
Go here. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

And this is my result:

Patonga is a place in New South Wales, it seems. The tail-end of the quote came from Oprah Winfrey, and the magnificent photo is one of an equally wonderful series taken by nevertorun, who might not be terribly impressed at having his/her photo thus purloined.

Thank you for a fresh idea - I will be using this as an activity when school starts in a couple of weeks

Lynne: happy to be of service! I'm sure your kids will be far more creative than I was - especially if they have something like PC paint or photoshop to experiment with.

Mind you, I fell in love with my picture and felt that any work on it would be too much!

Wow! You really did get lucky with that photo didn't you?! It's perfect! What sort of music would be on it if you had your way, then?

K8 the gr8: Hmm, let me think about that.

With a picture and a title like that, it's got to be something positive and life-affirming, so no rap, no screamo, probably no blues (much as I looove the blues) and (just because I hate it) no country and western.

Something folky perhaps? Like Iona (and I don't say that just because you're Irish - I genuinely like their stuff)or maybe Cat Stevens, or Norah Jones.

Mine was so terrible, I refuse to put it together. Who would call a band "Tottenville High School", title their album "else have ever seen" and use this cruddy image? Maybe I'll try again but that would defeat the spirit of the meme.

@graham Hmm. Perhaps a little image manipulation might be in order ;o)
