So it’s another Facebook game. I hate seeing these things in the wild, but this one was a pretty funny one. I wasn’t even supposed to know about it, but one of my SGU Facebook Friends was tagged in a note by someone I don’t know and whose profile I can’t see (but whose note, oddly enough, I can access via my Friend’s name), and I ended up on that page. Here are the rules:
1) Open a random page in Wikipedia. The first Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. (Alternatively, if the first article you hit is short, hit “Random Article” two more times.)
2) Get a random quote. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3) Find your album art. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4) Use a photo editing program to put it all together.
Voila! A debut recording artist is me!
I wasn’t going to do it at all, except that I never heard of these random page finders and was curious about what could come up. The picture sold me on the concept. It’s hilarious. I’d love to see what other people put together. I’m sure there’s a way to post links in the comments section, or I could post pictures here.

The secret to a good life is to have the right loyalties and hold them in the right scale of values.

This is the album art that inspired me:
There’s some awfully interesting stuff online. Way more interesting than chores.
