Given my last post, I was thinking that it's perhaps time to change my blog name. But to what?

Any ideas?

P.S. Simon, Brainshit is not an option, before you suggest it.
P.P.S. The idea is to try to come up with something hugely profound and scholarly that makes me look cleverer than I really am (shouldn't be too hard).

I have the perfect name for your blog Chris


Simple- direct- would fit nicely on a mug...

I must confess Chris, I always found "Brainpoo" a bit vulgar. How about:

Not the Spanish Inquisition
Fundies anonymous
Christos Kyrios

Thank heavens! Yes, please please please change the name -- anything else at all would be better. ;-)

hey, I like Brainpoo. Okay, does that say something bad about me?

or Bl-adder ... actually Jim's Tubinger (with the dots) is pretty hot.

Claire - I like Brainpoo too and I know that says something about me and I don't give a poo.

Hey Chris,

off the subject here, but I could not get registered at becasue the only e-mail accounts I have (two of which I pay with the web service) were not allowed through the FreeChess registration process.

Any suggestions?

how about 'cardinal spin'?

Jim's "Tübinger" sounds very cool. Unfortuntely, though, some aggregators, etc, can't read the umlaut, so it might be better to avoid using an umlaut in your title.

Classical and ecclesiastical Latin are always popular for titles. You could call it "Tabula Rasa", or "Habemus Papam", or "Saeculum", or "Nihil sub Sole", or, from the book of Romans, "Ex Fide in Fidem".

On the other hand, if Latin is too pretentious you could always go for a more modest intellectual title, such as "The Blog of the World's Cleverest Person", or "Profound Musings of a Very Brainy Individual", or "Sounding the Depths of Life's Greatest Questions", or "I Could Have Given This a Latin Name If I Wanted".

Hmm. Now even Brainpoo is starting to sound pretty good....

Claire Joy and Steph,

Thanks for visiting my blog. And thanks for saying you like 'Brainpoo' as a title. But you are right, it does say something about you!

But it says it about me too.

TB, have you tried all your e-mail addresses? Perhaps try a hotmail. I remember I had similar troubles, but then it all suddenly started to work.
Happy New Year. (PS. I've loved your posts of late).

As for the rest of you and your brilliant suggestions ... the result will be posted shortly!
