Name That Blog!



It's been about a year since I became the sole proprietor of Brilliant Corners. Time for a new name. Since I don't have the interest, money or spare precious bodily fluid to do market research, I am soliciting suggestions from YOU. 

So, go through the site. Read a few older posts. Try to distill the nature of the Brilliant Corners balderdash down to its essence. Submit as many names as you want, be they barbaric, cuddly, esoteric, moldy fig-friendly, demographically astute or legally actionable. Let not your ideas be bounded by the strictures of so-called "common sense."


Each submission will be carefully scorned, er, scanned by our crack squad of lackeys. If your submission is chosen, your name will become synonymous with squandered energy throughout the jazz blog-o-lalia. As a special bonus, you will be given keys to the city of Boston by Mayor Menino, or by someone else who is a registered mesomorph.


Now, go muzzle the dog, lock the kids in the basement, give the maid and butler the day off, crack the Armagnac, spin some wax and put on your thinking cap. Good luck, one and all. You may already be a winner.

Show you're willing to go the extra mile and name it "Third Balcony Jump"...

Sounds like a lost Basie tune...BTW, I will soon begin posting contest entries (most of which have been posted by people at my Facebook page.

I don't want to spoil the fun of renaming the blog, but what's wrong with "Brilliant Corners"? It's Monkish with a touch of double entendre. I didn't change "Jazz From The Top" once Zumix went off 1630 AM and went strictly Internet. All three listeners didn't give a damn!

Well---I'm sure my readers don't give a hoot, although some have had a pretty good time thinking stuff up. When I post the "entries" I bet you'll get a laugh out of it yourself.

Well, I've come on down, and here are a few suggestions (starting with obvious):

ImProvizing or ImProvizer
or ProVizions

See Sharp

Sounding Brass

Sections

Mouth Pieces

Horning In

MOTS (acronym for: Music Of The. Sphere's) (French for "words" too)

and a final, truly self-effacing one, and congrats on the fine Louis piece picked up elsewhere too--

ErSatch (or could dig even deeper into Linguistics for: UrSatch)

Steve Provizer said...

I would have expected nothing less from a master of the jeu de mots. If the blog was all Armstrong, UrSatch would ring the bell. Maybe RIcky wants to pick it up...

Undaunted I return with a couple of broader ideas--first of all: Dauntless --which is just a great word and gives you carte blanche to tackle any subject. But I am actually back to offer this... Iterations
--and, check it out, your email comments become... Re:Iterations
