    1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
    or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
    The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

    2 - Go to "Random quotations"
    or click http://www.quotationspage.com/
    (click "Random Quotes" on left nav)
    The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

    3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
    or click 7days
    Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

    4 - Use Photoshop to put it all together.

    Win! The band name and title go great together.

    I'll try and do one. . . later, though.

    Nat Love (1854 - 1921), also known as Nate Love, was an African American cowboy during the time of the claim to that moniker. In 1907, Love wrote his autobiography, "Life and Adventures of Nat Love."

    Love was born a slave in Davidson County, Tennessee, in 1854. Despite slavery era statutes that outlawed black literacy he learned to read and write as a child with the help of his father. He later went west to Dodge City, Kansas, and became a cowboy. He entered a rodeo on the 4th of July in 1876. He won the rope, throw, tie, bridle, saddle and bronco riding contests. His fans called him by the nickname "Deadwood Dick."[1]

    In October 1877, he was captured by a band of Akimel O'odham (Pima) while rounding up stray cattle near the Gila River in Arizona. Love reported that his life was spared because the Indians respected his fighting ability. 2749 days after being captured, Love stole a pony and managed to escape into West Texas.

    Love spent the latter part of his life working as a Pullman porter. He died in Los Angeles at age 67 in 1921.



    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    First off, Timberoo... AWESOME THREAD! Oh yeah, I know you said to use the last 5 words of the quote, but if I did that it would not make any sense.

    Here's what I got...

    In keeping with the hip young indie bands, Rylsk Łódź Voivodeship is not from the Polish village that is their namesake but instead Montréal. "Some of Which Actually Happened" was a departure from their earlier work, including their breakthrough song "What You Know is Wrong" on the album "Remove All Doubt." While considered a success by most accounts, it was panned by Pitchfork for being "derivative and vapid."

    I thank you both. And I blame you both, for providing me with more tools of procrastination. This could get quite addictive. icon_smile.gif
