CD Cover Meme

I came across this great meme idea today that I decided would be the first that I would do and ask others to respond. You follow three simple rules and using your favourite image editing program create a CD cover.

The rules are:

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

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.

Here is my attempt:

You will find other far more creative covers at the Flickr group for CD covers. Once you have tried it ask your students to as well!

I was going to name some specific bloggers to contribute to the theme but instead I challenge and look forward to seeing CD covers from our school division’s in-school instructional technology support committee.

  1. Donna- I’ve heard the term “meme” bandied about but I’ve yet to figure out what exactly it is (I’m assuming it is a noun). Also, from your instructions above, I assume we are restricted to the content from these three links? (Sorry, I’m rather tired, and I’ve only had two cups of coffee!)
    Have a good day, eh?

  2. Pat, yes content is restricted – the creative part is how you put those three elements together. It is quite amazing how they do come together to create a theme!

  3. That was fun Donna. My quote and picture definitely went together. I may try this with some of my students.

  4. I created a cover and enjoyed it so much, that I had my PAA 10 class try. Many of the resulting CD covers looked like they came from the store shelf. This activity also provided an opportunity for my students to revisit Fireworks.
