Wikipedia named our band - not very sexy unfortunately

24 February 2009

Sick of the dreary, unimaginative choice of CDs available in the shops (or what's left of them)? We certainly are. But we’re most amused by the latest craze to hit the net – Wikipedia Names Your Band. If Zavvi's racks had been full of the stuff that this little trick is throwing up, we probably wouldn't be tearfully mourning them now. Here’s how it works…

Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” and the title of 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 imaginary band's album. Next, 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.

Use a photo-editing program to combine those ingredients together and, hey-ho, you're now a mysterious, enigmatic band with your first album ready to hit the shops.

As you can see from ours, we've generated the kind of CD that you'll find in the bargain box at the HMV sale for about 40p, but here's some of the best that have been submitted to BuzzFeed. They're genius. Have a go yourself and send us the results - we'll stick the best ones up on the site in a kind of Tony Hart gallery stylee.

Rock on kids.

    Learn How to take Advantage of America’s Financial Crisis from Bill Bartmann’s new Book, “Bailout Riches” “With the economy in crisis, Bill Bartmann finds the diamond in the rough,” said David Lindahl, author of Emerging Real Estate Markets and Multi-Family Millions What is the investment opportunity from America’s financial crisis? According to Bill Bartmann, it is somewhere in the north of one trillion dollars of debt – mortgages, credit cards and other forms will be sold to buyers for pennies on the dollar. “It gets even better,” said Bill Bartmann. “There are ways to buy that debt without using your own money!” Investors with the right roadmap are poised to profit spectacularly as Bill Bartmann lays out a step by step plan on how to find the best deals form the federal government, local financial institutions and loan brokers. “The spectrum of loans that are available include credit card debt, consumer loans, business loans, commercial loans and real estate loans,” said Bartmann. Bill Bartmann’s book, Bailout Riches, is about how to invest in the bailout itself and take your own cut of the trillion-dollar pie. Bill Bartmann made a fortune the last time the government bailed out the savings and loan industry. “This time around, the bailout is much bigger and the opportunities for profit are much greater,” said Bartmann. “Who better to teach you how to prosper from this economic chaos than a man who actually took himself from ‘bankruptcy to billionaire’ during the last crisis,” said Ken Blanchard, co-author of The One Minute Entrepreneur. “Bill Bartmann is more than a great financial success story; he is a phenomenal teacher who has helped thousands of my students achieve success. Bailout Riches will show you how you can prosper during these tumultuous times,” said Harv Eker, author, New York Times #1 bestseller, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.
