Shon the Piper's new album...

Here's one of those random Facebook things -- a random album cover. I've got to say, my random album is pretty awesome.

Here's how it works if you wanna play at home...

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit "random... Read More... Read More"
or click
The first random 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 - Go to "Random quotations"
or click
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
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

Here's what I came up with...

My band name, Shon the Piper, is actually pretty fantastic. It's the name of a now lost 1913 film about, evidently (because it's lost and so I'm clearly just taking Wikipedia and IMDb's word on it), a wealthy Scotsman who disguises himself as a piper to win the hand of a peasant girl. This sounds like something that needs a remake because this story would totally fly today. People love Pipers.
