Carl: i made us a gmail account
Carl: and a wordpress account
Adam: good job passing logic.
what’s it all called?
Carl: our email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Adam: LOL okay.
Carl: the wordpress account is perlhandlerevolver.wordpress.com
a little programming humor for you
Adam: haha, that’s good. clever.
Carl: and the password to both is the same
Adam: and that is…
Carl: look at the question for gmail
why’s our name adam?
oooh, ‘adam carl.’
Carl: there you go
Adam: so, did we come up with a “thing”?
oh, topic. that’s the word.
Carl: not really
I did the leg work
you think of something for me to rant about
Adam: airport omelettes.
<– just strung two random nouns together yay!
Adam: what’s the “theme” we’re going for overall here?
Adam: current events?
and how should our posts correlate?
Carl: well, I’d imagine pithy current affairs mixed with retro random. One of us posts first, the other reads and responds with their own blog, who goes first alternates each blog
Adam: and who’s our audience? (other than “everyone?”)
20-30 year old hipsters, graphic designers and comic nerds?
we have a pretty good shot at solidifying the whole of that crowd
we sweep wide, you and I
Adam: this is true.
alright, so, “everyone” it is. 🙂
and what do we call it?
Carl: well, I tried very hard to come up with a pithy nickname, but I couldn’t think of one that involved us being brothers
Adam: yeah, i was thinking about that during my photo class.
Carl: its hard
I’m trying to think of two brothers that are famous
but its hard
Carl: or greek mythology seems too… shitty
but you try working the Wright Brothers into a blog name that sends a message to our demographic
thats like asking the sky to hold up the earth
Adam: “Titty Hawk?”
Carl: if this blog becomes successful I would prefer not to be attached to something called “Titty Hawk”
Adam: Yeah, you’re probably right. Sigh.
Carl: “Can’t-do Attitude”
Adam: haha, way to shoot yourself down in half a second on that one.
Carl: its just not good
Adam: Pork n’ Brains
The Brothergate Tapes
Adam: Oh, Brother (no.)
Adam: LOL I think we can file that one under “Titty Hawk.”
Adam: but funny.
Carl: what is a field of study you respect
I’ll look under that
Carl: you look under Aerospace…
Carl: I’ll look under Phrenology
Adam: Yeah, but try Computer anything first.
too hard to type out
hard to remember
we need catch
Adam: That’s pretty good, but when I have to say it aloud, I fear the average person may need a dictionary.
Yeah. Something “hooky”.
Or we could do the misnomer thing, and call it like “The history of Montreal.”
Carl: “The Some Of Our Parts”
Adam: Haha, yeah, if it weren’t for that gayish double entendre, that would be perfect.
Carl: I like Atmospheric Reentry, but it lacks “zaz”
Adam: too bad “Rocketboom” is already taken.
Adam: Jive something, or something Jive
The Jive Tabernacle.
Haha, looking at the list you sent me. I didn’t realize the computer from “Stealth” was called “Extreme Deep Invader.” Sounds like it comes with jail time.
that’s got “pop.” and possibly snap and/or crackle.
Carl: i like it
and it means “a conversation between two people”
Adam: indeed it does.
Carl: which works for the whole brothers thing
Adam: the only problem with it is that the “proper” spelling requires a goddamn foreign keyboard.
I don’t even know what those letters are called.
Carl: me either
Adam: whatever. let’s go for it.
and if something else comes up, we can change it.
Carl: at any time!
Adam: Yay, the internet!
Carl: also, in light of my wanting to keep a job
how about, perhaps, we keep this relatively anonymous
lets get a few posts up, and people can start reading it after that
strangers might not catch on about the adam carl thing
Adam: Aw, that sucks. ‘Cause it thought it would have been good to post this conversation as like, “back story.”
Carl: we still can
but Carl becomes Carl and Adam becomes Adam
Adam: fair enough.
I’ll do that.
Carl: I’ll do it in MS word, and it will be our first blog, how about?
Adam: I’m already on it. 🙂
