    Default Band Game

    1. Go to Wikipedia, click on random article. This is the name of your band
    2. Go to Wikiquote, click on random page. The last 3-6 words of the first quote is the name of your album
    3. Go Google and image search the words that will be the title of your album. 4th picture is the album cover. Shop that shit and show it off.



    I get:


    Looks like some horrible Euro techno crap.

    Sorry for the double post, but this one was too nice to pass up.



    (Full disclosure: Before that one I had a different combination that I abandoned because the image didn't load properly, but I try not to cheat.)

    I don't know why I enjoy this so much.
    Must be an apophenia thing - or I am just easily amused.



    (This was the one that didn't load earlier. Now I'm back on track without skipping a single one.)



    Come on, someone else can make a few more.

    I'll be back with more. This one makes too much and not enough sense for my tastes.

    I like this one combo I got. I did not know what the picture was when I found it on the Google Image search until I got the blowup.

    This is the first one that I cropped. The ones that are more or less square just look more album-like.

    Is the fact that Feirefiz and I got the same quote indicative of randomness or lack of randomness?

    Seeing as how the band name is for a theoretical form of commune, I'm guessing this is "music with a message."

    Oh yes, I completely missed that. I think because the Wikiquote pages are by author and not by quote there are probably few enough that the birthday paradox has to strike sooner or later.

    'Alcohaulin' Ass" is actually the name of some heavy metal song, but in this case it's my band name:
