Just for the fun of it

...and then I read this:

Make up your own "debut CD" using the following steps:
1 : Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” or
click here. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of "your" band.
2 : Go to Quotations Page and select “random quotations”
click here. The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.
3: Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
click here.
 Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 : Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

The whole idea had been going around on several blogs like Art for Art's sake and Any Major Dude With Half A Heart.

This is what they came up with:

It looked like a fun idea to me. So, why shouldn't I give it a try?
This is my first attempt:

"Vagaries of the Crowd" by 1960 Olympics.
One could see some simularities with The Editors, or even The Cure...
But I think it has a bit of a Gothic feel. Might be the typography, but it might be the dramatic illustration too.
Tell me what you think.
Is this worth goin' on?

Do you like it? Or not?
