NAME THIS SITE CONTEST!!! March 28, 2006

Posted by Michael in AA - Uncategorized.

There has been discussion on the BlogWisconsin thread at Jack’s site regarding a better name for this blog site than the incredibly boring one initially assigned by Retired Geezer.

So far, Laura has suggested “Clusterfblog.” I’m not sure if the “f” is a typo or not.

Skinbad has proposed:

“Mike and the Mechanics”

“The Predator-Prey Dynamic”

“What’s it Gonna Be, Guys?”

“Stuff Jefferson Said”

“Banned By Bill (And Friends)

Personally, I like the idea of calling it BlogWisconsin, so that BrewFan can have an actual website on which to post his “Thought for the Day.” But that’s up to him.

All suggestions are welcome. The winner gets, um . . . TO NAME THIS BLOG SITE!!!

Unless all of your ideas suck. Then we’re stuck with Michael’s Comments.

Innocent Bystanders?

Friends of Pony?

2. Amador - March 28, 2006

Fugowwe !

because this blog asks the question Where the fugowwe ?

Oh. and Clusterfunk would be kewl.

And, I’m from Pennsylvania. There are no dead birds here, only voters. And they’re all democrats.
Yo, get out da street…you’re starting to stink.

* íslenska Smáhestur sjá Mikjálsmessa La-Z Boy Recliner með intravenous Scotch delivery system*


Halló laglegur stóll. ÉG a raunverulegur hunang .

4. HayZeus - March 28, 2006

Personally I’ve always preferred Flustercluck to Clusterfunk but that’s JMO. If I were naming this blog I would call it the Batcave.

P.S. For those fools who actually thought that I was pony the above post should disabuse you of any such notions. 😛

5. HayZeus - March 28, 2006

Err, that’s supposed to be Fustercluck.

6. Michael - March 28, 2006

Methinks thou dost protest too much, HZ.

7. blogidaho - March 28, 2006

Clip Clop


8. blogidaho - March 28, 2006

“…La Z Boy Recliner with intravenous Scotch delivery SISTER…”

Where can I get one o them Sistahs?

Love the inherent errors in translations.
Thanks Michael, for showing me that site.

9. BrewFan - March 28, 2006

I like the group blog concept so let’s scratch BlogWisconsin. I love Geezer’s tagline ‘Anyone Can Blog – Commenting is Hard’ and would like to see us keep that somehow. How about “Any Comments”?

10. blogidaho - March 28, 2006

“Any Comments”, I think that’s in the running.

Yeah, I like Geezer’s tagline too.

11. skinbad - March 28, 2006

I like the tagline as well. HZ’s Batcave idea seems kind of fitting. There are few things in life I enjoy more than Adam West delivering a straight line.

I might get a rare braincramp I’d care to share, so unless the Mormon/Lutheran blood feud is bothering you–please sign me up.

12. Michael - March 28, 2006


Check your email. If you don’t have a message from me, email me. If you do have an email from me, please confirm receipt.

13. Mrs. Peel - March 28, 2006

I like The Batcave, but I guess my opinion doesn’t matter since I have my own blog already and am therefore exempt from posting on this one.


“Banned By Bill” is funny too. I should spend some time over there and see if I can get myself banned.

14. Michael - March 28, 2006

 I guess my opinion doesn’t matter since I have my own blog already and am therefore exempt from posting on this one.

Mrs. Peel:

You can post here. It's the least I can do after littering your site with so many lewd comments.

In order to have "author" priviliges on this site, it looks to me like you have to be a part of the WordPress Community. So, sign up for a WordPress ID and send me an email with your account ID. You can do that here: http://wordpress.com/signup/.

You will then become an authorized contributor to this non-blog, which is devoted to appreciating the skills of dedicated commenters (see tag line above).

15. HayZeus - March 28, 2006

From the dashboard go to users and then the authors & users tab. You should be able to add users manually from there.

16. Mrs. Peel - March 29, 2006

I feel so loved!


17. michael - March 29, 2006


When I do that, my only option is “Add Users From Community”, which doesn’t work if I just attempt to use an email address (skinbad) or an URL (Mrs. Peel).

So, I’m inferring that they need to be WordPress community members — unless maybe I pay WordPress, or I download WordPress to my PC instead of just using it as a hosted service (which I don’t know how to do).

Mrs. Peel:

You are loved. Even a geek like you should know that.

Please stop sniffling. The snot on your upper lip is unbecoming.

18. Retired Geezer - March 29, 2006

Yeah, I’m not sure how that “add users from community’ thing works either.

But, check this out:

Naked Testicle Spiderman.

yeah, I know it’s not you. can you imagine the traffic though?

20. anycomments - March 29, 2006

Oh you mean This Guy? (content warning… duh)

He looks like Naked Goth Testicle Spiderman.

21. geoff - March 29, 2006

The Compleat Commenter

The Well-Tempered Comment

Fanfare for the Comment Man


Incontinent Commentia

One I suggested for Ace’s radio show: Ineffable Train Wreck

One I was thinking about using if I ever got around to starting a blog which’ll never happen so here it is: Uncommon Misconceptions

22. Elzbth - March 29, 2006

Will it be possible to just comment on the comments at this commenting blog? After all, that will be three times as difficult as blogging.

23. michael - March 29, 2006

Well sure, Elzbth, if you insist on showing off, I suppose you can do that.

I’ll bet you always turned in your homework on time.

24. Dave in Texas - March 29, 2006

the dog ate my title for this blog

25. Elzbth - March 29, 2006

I was required to do that by the Really Very Sweet Union. Bit ÉG

26. Amador - March 29, 2006

or some combination word like Postorgan,
or Birdwrappings, or Clu-biquitous.

27. HayZeus - March 29, 2006

I see what you mean about creating users. I’m guessing that the WordPress community requires registration to create/post on a wordpress.com blog.

P.S. Why haven’t you left for Virginia yet? 😉 😛

28. anycomments - March 29, 2006

“Michael’s Comments” is growing on me. I think it’s just banal enough to be kewl. I think I’m registered now. I put up my first post at Geezer’s Any Comments? blog.


29. anycomments - March 29, 2006

Damn. Me feel about as smart as pony:

30. Sobek - March 30, 2006

I like “The Predator-Prey Dynamic” and “Stuff Jefferson Said.” I also vote for “The Batcave.”

I’m in a blogging-creativity funk, so the best I can think of for a title is “What I’m doing while Mrs. Michael shags the pool boy.” Which is not a very good title.

Another Ace-themed title: “Giant. Frickin’. Spiders.”

31. Civetta - March 30, 2006

Squibs Extraordinaire?

32. Civetta - March 30, 2006

BTW, if Michael is invited I want my personal space on the deck clearly marked, thank you very much. Also, I like my beef medium please. I’ll bring the paper products.

33. blogidaho - March 30, 2006

Heh… she said Paper Products.

34. HayZeus - March 30, 2006

Michael’s supposedly not coming. Are you trying to say that he’s wishy-washy? 😉

35. Civetta - March 30, 2006

Among other things, HZ…

36. michael - March 30, 2006


Check your email.

37. civetta - March 30, 2006

Checked…and NO MICHAEL, I will not do that. I’m not that kind of girl. Capes, glue and feathers aren’t my ‘thang’. Now, my email box is filling up so please cease and desist with all the begging before I’m forced to report you.

38. Enas Yorl - March 30, 2006

If you’re still considering blog names I nominate “The System of Doctor Tarr & Professor Pheather”. This works particularly for a non-blog run by other blog’s commentators as the title refers to Edgar Allen Poe’s short satire piece where the “System” resulted in the inmates running an asylum. As an added bonus you have a cool theme song by the Allen Parsons Project available. If the whole title is too long you can always shorten it. Anyway, my $.02.

39. michael - March 30, 2006

If we like Alan Parsons Project, and I certainly do (Best Of 2 is in my car right now), but we want something shorter, how about “Eye In The Sky”? We could occasionally use “Looking At You” as an alternative tagline to Geezer’s. Kinda fits with the “we-are-commenters-not-bloggers” theme.

40. Enas Yorl - March 30, 2006

Shorter – well “The System of Tarr & Pheather” or simply “Tarr & Pheather”. I would give this serious consideration if I were you. C’mon! It has a theme already built in for you! The blogroll could be titled “Friends of a Pheather”, a category could be “The Tarr Pit”, people or places that get slapped down or generally made fun of around here could be a “Tarr & Pheather Job”! Really, the possiblilities are endless. Not only that, but you’ll have instant tie-in to all things Poe! Anyway, another $.02.

41. Elzbth - March 30, 2006

Gee, that’s 4 cents from Enas Yorl. So far he is the highest bidder. Maybe he has a point.

42. geoff - March 30, 2006

The appropriate theme kind of depends on your view of the commenter’s role:

The disengaged onlooker (kind of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern)

The minion doing battle on the blogger’s behalf

The social type hanging with the gang (Archie & Jughead)

If only we could transcend all that to become: Omniscient Narrators! Then we could comment in an all-knowing way on the meta-blogging scene. We’d be uber-commenters then.

43. Dave in Texas - March 30, 2006

Thus quoth the Raven

44. Enas Yorl - March 30, 2006

There ya go Dave – that’s the spirit! An excellent choise: classic Poe that also has an awesome Alan Parsons Project theme song. It also offers a lot of rich imagery you can tap into: Lost Lenores galore, blogroll of Night’s Plutonian Shore – all good stuff.

Still, if these suggestions don’t exactly peel your banana, I do have others.

45. Enas Yorl - April 1, 2006

Hmm. I’m not sensing a lot of love for the Edgar Allen Poe concept here. How about a completely different direction? I nominate “For Non Blogs” as name. It fits with the whole “we’re just commenters here” thing and it does come with a theme song.

46. shelly - January 18, 2007

i love that bedroom furniture!

47. mesablue - April 24, 2007

Nice futon!

48. Jack M. - April 29, 2007

I’m submitting “Jack’s Offs” for consideration, since you all are cast offs from my lousy blogs, and since you will likely get mega pron traffic!

49. Retired Geezer - April 29, 2007

I prefer ‘Jack’s Orphans’.

50. harrison - April 29, 2007

pRon traffic?

51. Bill O'reilly - April 29, 2007

i dont get it.

52. Bill O 'Reilly - April 29, 2007

Oh now i get it.

My good friend emailed me and let me know what you guys were talking about:
