I think it was Kevin Pease who started this one. It's quite old, but still fun:

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band. (If it's the entry for a real musician or band, cheating with a reload is probably a good idea.)

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4. Use your graphics program of choice (I used MS Paint) to throw them together, like so:

I decided to try to cast a few Resurrect Thread spells in the games section. I'll stick to old games, I figure since the board has probably grown over the last few years and certainly the membership will have changed, it might be worth trying some again...

OK, here goes with this one - I used a combination of the Fototrix website (which has an annoying habit of leaving its logo everywhere... though come to think of it, Fototrix could be a band name) and MSPaint.

Even though this thread was from way back when, the game is very interesting and I couldn't resist.

Yes, that's what I meant be resurrecting it. :)

Thread necromancy is normally frowned upon, but I'm much too tired to find the exact rule back.
Plus.. like I said, too fun a game.
I like your characters, by the way, using PS?

Oh. Oops. Thanks for telling me that. I shall be careful not to resurrect anything in future, even games that look fun. I suppose in place of doing that I could recreate the thread with a new start? That wouldn't strictly speaking be necromancy and I see other threads are on their second run etc... Is that acceptable to the board?

As to my characters, I actually use Fototrix.com which has a number of pic editing sections - add words, add props, add speech bubbles etc. It does have serious limitation, such as only letting you add 1 phrase, thus making you add one, save, reload, add the next. It also insists in adding the fototrix.com logo to the bottom of any work edited there, which I then edit out with MSPaint and upload. Anyhow, the fototrix upload page is here in case you want to try it.

Aye, recreating is the way to go *nodnods*
...I still can't find the rule. It could be unwritten, too *needs working head*

Hmmm.. I'll keep using SAI + Picmonkey, then *chuckles* It sounds less a hassle.

Thanks, I'll give that a whiz some time see if it works well for me. Certainly Fototrix is a pain, it just lets me produce what I want laboriously.

Of course what would make this more "convincing" would be the ability to add a barcode to the picture...
