My blog needs a new name... or... "Bastion... save us!"

Hey all.

So I'm thinking of giving the blog a new name. Now that I actually post a lot (I'm not saying it'll always stay that way, but for now I am) and seem to have a bit of a readership (small but loyal), I want my blog to seem like a "real" blog, and that seems to require a snazzy name.

As I recall, Glenn's blog morphed a while back from "Glenn's Movie Forum" to "Stale Popcorn." The new name seemed to signify a change in the blog's overall feel and aura of respectability; with Glenn's name out of the title, it was no longer "Glenn's blog" and was instead "that cool blog about movies and stuff."

So I've concluded that the a blog with the name "Adam's Inner Life" is just kind of... silly. And not worth reading regularly, linking to, etc. So it's changing. And I decided I wanted the new name to be the title of a Rufus Wainwright song. Because Rufus is awesome, and his songs have great titles.

Here are a few I'm considering (UPDATED with fewer choices):

One Man Guy (cause I am)
Rebel Prince (cause people seem to like it)
Crumb By Crumb (one of my favorite of his songs)
Matinée Idol (the current frontrunner and most subject-appropriate title)

If you read the blog (you don't have to be someone who comments regularly), please contribute a vote or shout-out for a name you'd like it to have. Please, don't be shy. I want to know who reads me! ...if anyone. So, yeah.

This change will likely come over winter break, when I have lots of time, along with a new sidebar, my switch to blogger beta, and lots of general blog refurbishment. I still keep putting that off, but really have been meaning to do it.

Anyway, thanks for reading, if you do! And please help me decide on a name. Like The Neverending Story's Childlike Empress, my blog is dying as "the nothing" slowly eats away at it... but all it needs is a new name.

"Bastion... save us...!"

"CALL OUT MY NAME!"

I like Matinee Idol.

I've always thought (well, since I downloaded it a few months back) that "Konichiwa Bitches" would be an awesome name for a blog. (the song is by Robyn btw. d/l it. it's awesome. just like Robyn.)

I don't think it fits in with your blog, but you get my drift.

Thanks, Glenn!

I am also leaning toward Matinée Idol.

Others close in the running are One Man Guy, Old Whore's Diet and Crumb by Crumb.

The only strike against "Idol" is that it's possibly my least favorite Rufus song ever. But that doesn't matter, really.

I may also eventually split the blog into one film blog and one other one, so then I'd get to use two of these names. I dunno.

Matinee Idol is solid, but my favorites are Crumb by Crumb and Rebel Prince. All three are great.

I am convinced that Stale Popcorn is the best blog name ever. I sometimes think of changing mine too (backstory: The Cutting Room Blog was simply to be a accompanying feature to a bigger film site with the same name.) Since that never came about, I'm sort of stuck with this one.

OK, so...

Matinée Idol
One Man Guy
Rebel Prince
Crumb by Crumb

I have narrowed it down to four.

Hmm, looks like the "é" doesn't always work... that could be a problem.

Of those 4 names I like 'Crumb by Crumb' best.

Like Ali already said Matinée Idol is solid, but why doesn't the "é" work?

10:24 AM  
Blogger adam k. said...

I dunno. On the main blog, it looks fine, but on the pages where you view the posts with comments, the é just looks like a bunch of gobbledegook, but then on the page where you post comments, it's fine again. I guess it's read differently in different.

Looks like Matinée Idol and Crumb by Crumb both have their fans... I may end up splitting the blog eventually and using both those names.

I just got an IPHONE Mini from a friend of mine, and i cant figure out how to transfer photos, music, videos from my computer to the iphone. I connected the usb, and it showed "mass storage" and i clicked on that, and then nothing happens. Is there a software i can use to transfer music onto it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

In order to produce capital it is usually a sensible conclusion to begin a savings or investing course of action as early in life as imaginable. But don't fear if you have not started saving your assets until later on in life. As a result of honest work, that is analyzing the best investment vehicles for your cash you can slowly but surely increase your riches so that it numbers to a huge sum by the period you hope to retire. Watch all of the achievable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A well diversified portfolio of investments in various asset classes will help your money build throughout the years.
