Current Mood: okayokay
In lieu of any real update, here's a kickin' meme from poor_choices:

Go to the Wikipedia home page and click random article. That is your band's name.
Click random article again; that is your album name.
Click random article 15 more times; those are the tracks on your album.

The results:

Cherie Blair
Tom Lungley

1. The Final Showdown
2. List of protagonists in The King of Braves GaoGaiGar
3. Lynn Lake, Manitoba
4. Imitation of Life (novel)
5. Notice (disambiguation)
6. Martin W. Littleton
7. Mickaël Cherel
8. Cybi
9. Directo a la luz
10. Jean-Baptiste Singelée
11. Buel Township, Michigan
12. OnStream Networks
13. Assam Silk
14. Anglo-French
15. Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Animation

I'm not sure which part amuses me more: hitting an article that's already been used as a song name, or hitting a boring crufty "List of..." article.

I'm somewhat disturbed by the fact that you got two mecha anime results from a random search on Wikipedia with only 17 tries.

I like the postmodern way that the the parenthetical disambiguators in Wikipedia article names get recontextualized. "Notice (Disambiguation)" sounds like a great 12-minute art-rock piece with abstract lyrics about consciousness.

Band: Etag
Album: Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

1) Oakdale
2) Difference set
3) Material adverse change
4) Honda-kai
5) Alf Evers
6) Michael Barbiero
7) Michów, Lower Silesian Voivodeship
8) Proteus-eretes
9) Aquacobalamin reductase
10) Madhumasam
11) Clerical error
12) Desdunes
13) Shība, Miyazaki
14) Heinrich Wolfgang Ludwig Dohrn
15) Pelisse

I think I'd listen to this on the strength of band and album names alone. The track names seem pretty weak for the most part, though.

"Notice (Disambiguation)" would actually be an excellent song name, truth be told.

I think there are really just a lot of geographic articles on Wikipedia, truth be told, inadvertently making this meme the New Sufjan Stevens Album Generator.

I found that too, as you can see in the ridiculous adoption of this meme in my own post. Also biographical articles, those struck me as the main two.

I dunno, List of Protagonists in The King of Braves GaoGaiGar could be the next 700 Hobo Names.
