wikipedia meme

March 2, 2009 at 8:28 pm (this and that) ()

I suppose my pleasure in such things as lolcats and other low internet comedy explains my delight in this meme I read about on the Onion’s A.V. Club blog. Wikipedia names your band, first album, and Flickr provides the artwork. Here’s the deal:

Go to “Wikipedia.” Hit “random” and the first article you get is the name of your band. Then go to “Random Quotations” and the last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. Then, go to Flickr and click on “Explore the Last Seven Days” and the third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Hey! Three people out there who read my blog! Including the arguably real Mr. Neil Gaiman! Post your own! If you don’t, the Global Gladiators will write you the saddest song about a lonely kitten in a rainstorm.
