If you’re on Facebook, you’ve probably done it or seen your friends do it plenty of times. Popularly known as Make Your Own Album Cover (or shortly “album cover”), this DIY game first began as a Flickr group project circa early 2008 and subsequently crossed over to other social networking sites like Facebook through the following year.
Origins of CD Cover Meme [Incomplete]
In February 2008, the Flickr group “CD Cover Meme” was created and it currently holds the largest collection of randomly generated album covers with 2000+ submissions. Once again in early 2009, fake album covers leaped beyond its own expectations when Facebook users quickly caught on by posting their album covers as tagged notes, inviting their friends to create their own artworks as well.
How to Make Your Own Album Cover
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/random.php3
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 http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.
5 – Post it with this text in the “caption” and TAG the friends you want to join.
