He orders his coffee Cubano and is suddenly aware of his accent. With its broad, rural vowels and hard, Norgie consonants it sticks out in this place like an rusty farm tractor on the Plaze de la Constitucion. He has been in Saint Aggie for 3 summers, wears the faded linens and burnt skin of a true Floridano, but when he opens his mouth he still sounds like a tater-eater from Fort St. Anthony.

He hands a pound note to the coffee girl and takes his coffee. He finds a table near the window, with a view of the boulevard, and sits. Removes the lid from the coffee, and takes a sip. Makes a slurping noise, but doesn't care if anyone notices; this is his ritual, and he enjoys it. He sees folded up newspaper on the adjacent table, and he takes it. The front page is all about troop movements and politicians' threats, but he doesn't want to read about the Texians today. He turns to sport section and checks the football scores.

Random band album cover






About

If you’re on Facebook, you’ve probably done it or seen your friends do it plenty of times. Popularly known as Make Your Own Album Cover (or shortly “album cover”), this DIYgame first began as a Flickr group project circa early 2008 and subsequently crossed over to other social networking sites like Facebook through the following year.

Origins of CD Cover Meme [Incomplete]

In February 2008, the Flickr group “CD Cover Meme” was created and it currently holds the largest collection of randomly generated album covers with 2000+ submissions. Once again in early 2009, fake album covers leaped beyond its own expectations when Facebook users quickly caught on by posting their album covers as tagged notes, inviting their friends to create their own artworks as well.

How to Make Your Own Album Cover

1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random”
or click http://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 http://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 http://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.
