Cyber Brain Storm

Doesn’t that sound painful, a “brain storm”? How does one prepare or cover up against that type of storm? Hummm. While you think about this, I must tell you, in case you hadn’t noticed, I like change. I particularly enjoy those I can make easily. I’ve been toying with this idea of changing my blog title. “Stories 2 Tell” doesn’t do it for me anymore. While “chatting” with Pigeon, as far back as last September, we both agreed that the “paw” angle had to be worked in. So, this is where you come in…

From what you know (or what you think you know) of this blog, and me what do you think a good title would be?

Throw ideas my way, I’ll consider everything, and let’s see what might come out of this “cyber brain storm”...

Meanwhile, I’ve seen this on a few blogs and wondered if I could also use the idea to find a new blog look/name… but it’s fun for an “album cover”.

Here is what you do to make your very own album cover:

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together.

Here's mine:

Let your imagination run wild!

I don't think I can post a pic here, so you'll have to come to The Corner to see my results.

Will do, but what about the cyber Brain Storming? Any ideas?

Marius said...

As for the blog name, I think it would be cool, and apropriate if it were some sort of combination of French and English, since that is much like its creator. Although I must confess that I keep forgetting that your blog actually has a name besides Stinkypaw's place. There is such a 'take off your shoes, help yourself to a beer as long as you bring some next time' feel to your blog that the name is almost irrelevent. I always feel like I'm visiting my best friend when I come here. How about Stinky's Pub?
(of course, given my overly creative blog title I don't suppose I can really give you any advise here)

Tsk, our school banned the term 'brain storming' because if might offend epileptics. Madness. I'll have to give the album cover thing a go at some point.

I like Marius's idea of combining French and English. Though i agree with him, its like a blog where you can come in, relax and have a cup of tea and a sit down. I'll have more of a think. Other than punning paws/pause, i can't think of anything at the moment. I'll put my thinking cap on.

Please include "stinky." I love that word! And I love even more that you call yourself "Stinky."

Heh, funny that I should comment just below Monkey. Because I couldn't think of a new blog name, but was thinking how inappropriate the name 'Stinkypaw' is now that you have left Pierrefonds! Although I do like the sound of it and the way it rolls off the tongue, and I wouldn't want you to change it because I'm so used to it. It always takes me years to adjust when people I know change their names.
Like Marius, I sometimes forget your blog has a name. In that sense, I agree the blog has probably outgrown it's title. I like the idea of a French/English hybrid name (as you can tell from my own blog!) and I like the idea of incorperating your name into it somehow.
Since no one yet has actually suggested a name, I will present my very feeble offering in an attempt to lure people into giving their own:
"Stinkypaw, stinks no more!"
See, it rhymes, and has your name. But I can't help imagining cheerleaders chanting it with pom-poms in hand.
Back to the old drawing board.

how about "Josie Grossie" (not that you are gross but i recall that video of the girls eating poop) and of course the drew barrymore character.

I'm good at naming animals, but not so good at naming blogs, obviously--look at the name of mine. Hee.

Stinkypaw said...

marius: I like the bilingual idea. Thanks for saying I'm confy, I like that! I guess my blog is "really" refective of my nature. :-)

pigeon: That politically correctness is getting ridiculous!

monkey: I'll keep that in mind!

hasarder: I like Stinkypaw and in a way it's me, so I'm not about to let that go. And it has to be bilingual.

princess: Thanks but I'll pass on the "Grossie" thing... Not quite what I have in mind. ;-)

lizgwiz: I like your name, that's fun!

I'm not so good at blog names. All I could come up with was Stinkypaw's Litterbox. How about "It's All Gone Paws Up"? See, I'm no good at it. ;-)

I've got my album cover posted at my blog. That was fun!
