Inspiration from Random Generators

One of my favorite things to do when bored or when I need a mental jumpstart is to check out random generators. These little online gems can provide hilarious and/or thought-provoking ideas which can produce just the inspiration you need for a project you're working on.

A recent meme I came across was the method for creating your own rock band CD cover. Using the random picture generator on Flickr and the random page generator on Wikipedia, you come up with a picture and title for your very own rock band CD cover. Obviously, you're being presented with copyrighted material, so this is just for fun. However, what comes up can give you the spark you're looking for.

Click here for Wikipedia. In the left hand column you'll see a button for "Random Article."

Click here for Flickr. You'll end up on the "Explore" page. Match any picture with your random article result.
