Polling for a name

So I have decided to re-name my blog, Sky fishing just isn’t cutting it any more.  My rocketry days are numbered, and I have sold off most of my motors and rocket related goodies.  I will still hold on to a few rockets for nostalgia purposes and plan on flying one each year or so.  Most notably the rockets that my wife and I built together, namely: “Thing one – Thing two”, “Double Trouble”, and the match pair “Black/White” and “White/Black” which were inspired by the Star Trek Episode #14 “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield”  I know, what a geek.

Now that I have made the decision to re-name my blog the hard part begins.  What to name it?

Ross, from Planet Ross has made a few suggestions.

– Wind Winder (the winder as in winding a yo-yo)

– Hippie Prairiemobilia

– Fire-arms, Walking-legs and Windy-thoughts

– Colorado’s and don’ts

– Prairie Profounderer

– Breezy Thoughts

– Is there a draft in here?

– Zombees in my Bonnet … or hat

Archvillain came up with -FUBAR labs.  I like the name, but has been taken by a number of other websites, I don’t intend to add to that list.   Sorry, keep trying.

I would like to ask one more time for suggestions, and then I will post a poll to see which is preferred by people who actually read my blog.  No, I won’t allow readers to choose the new name, I am not stupid.  But I will take into consideration any idea that comes across.

  1. Why not just keep it simple and call it Prairie Flounder? Your nom de plume is pretty memorable.

    If you’re going to let a little thing like prior use bother you, I suppose I can come up with a couple of other possibilities.

    – Pyro without the Maniac
    – Bedknobs and Boomsticks
    – Quantum Beep
    – Lawrence Liver-no-more Labs
    – Have Nerd, Will Travel
    – Nuclear Weaponeer’s Handbook (Volume I)
    – Several Species of Small Furry Animals Living in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict
    – All the Good Names Were Taken
    – Insert Silly Title Here
    – Dionysus and Dynamite
    – Shaving the Barber
    – Any Sufficiently Advanced Technology …
    – With Friends Like These
    – Big Bada-Boom

    I’m sure I could dream up a few more if I lubricated my cephalic nodule with alcohol, but that oughta be enough to start with.

    I agree with Mike at The Big Stick: I do like the name “Prairie Flounder”
    … but I do like Archvillain’s “All the Good Names Were Taken” idea.
