someone else is driving

This could be my band's next album.
Except I don't sing nor can I play an instrument, therefore I do not play in a band...
But the "My band's next album" gimmick is cool. I got it from Henrik Tandberg on Facebook.
For this I used a photo by daliborlev: www.flickr.com/photos/mr_gonzales and a quote by David Letterman.
For your own album follow these guidelines:
1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
or click 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 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 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 to Facebook with this text in the "caption" and TAG the friends you want to join in. (you can untag yourself if you don't want this photo up)
My, flurdy, changes to these rules are:
3 - Follow the 3rd step, but make sure the photo has a license which allow reproduction. I would suggest looking at flickr.com/creativecommons.
4 - Instead of photoshop, I se picnik.com. Its free and online, and with the firefox extension links directly from flickr.
5 - I posted mine back to flickr and now to my blog.
The picture by daliborlev was licensed under CC-by-sa-nc, while my normal flickr work is CC-by-sa, so I had to add nc to this album photo.
