Good Band Name

This is an interesting creative exercise: Come up with a “Good Band Name”

But not just ANY good band name. It needs to be funny and catchy. It should be paradoxical or ironic. A “first album” title is optional.

Examples:
Mark Keytool & the Design Premiums (Photoshop nerds should “get it”)
The Amish Truckers (First album could be “Horsepower” — via Kent)
Union Contracts (First album could be “1,000 Lbs of Paperwork” — via Kathy)
Wayne Wheat and the Flax Seeds (via Jeremy)

I saw this going on at Twemes.com. You can participate in this Twitter meme by including “#GoodBandName” in your update. If you don’t feel like following the latest Twitter trend, leave a comment here instead!

More Friday Fun

In an effort to further reduce the productivity of Fridays (and thus allow it to become an official part of the weekend), I launched a new weekly game over on Twitter. The success of BrainFuel’s Caption Contest Fridays played a key role in motivating me to start TwitLibs.

Because Twitter communication is text-based, I needed a game that did not involve images. Based loosely on Mad Libs, the game involves one person sending Twitter a statement with a series of blanks (e.g. [I just __ my __]). The message is delivered to all of that person’s “followers” on the site. To play, they simply reply with the words they think makes the statement funniest (e.g. [@brianshaler “pooped”, “pants”] or [@brianshaler “kicked”, “dog”]).

Round 1 is already underway. The Twitter replies are in the comments.
