A Dumb Internet Meme I Can Get Behind

A recent tweet from Ted Leo alerted me to the latest intertube craze: making fake album covers. Apparently, it goes like this: you get an artist name from a random Wikipedia page, an album title from a random quotation, and a cover image from Flickr’s “explore last 7 days” page. It’s about as stupid and addictive as it sounds.

I gave it a shot and came up with two decent LPs. This one’s from my side project with PJ Harvey:

Ted just posted another example, far superior to mine. He’s just as good at making fake albums as he is making real ones.
