Rather Than An Ornament

Ok, several folks I know on FB are doing this "make an album cover" thingie.  I don't genaerally do these things, but after seeing a few, I decided to give it a shot.  I think it turned out kind of interesting.

Here's the "rules:
1 - Go to Wikipedia and hit random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. 2 - Go to and hit random. 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”. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. 4 - Use Photoshop or similar ( is a free online photo editor) to put it all together. 5 - Post it with this text in the "caption" and TAG the friends you want to join in...Consider yourself tagged if you can read this.

Now, I did cheat a little.  the first image that came up (step 3) was something with lots of words already added, didn't fit the program at all.  So I decided to hit random again.  And, truth be told, the second photo was just, well, yucky.  So I did do it one more time.

Kinsd of cool, but it does flag one of those interesting points.  I copied this image w/o the artist's knowledge or permission.  Anyone with a smidge of computer savvy could do the same with anything I've posted online.  Which I'd really rather wasn't the case.....  But I just did it....  so I'm mildly conflicted.
