Ten thousand dancing girls kicking cans across the sky

Yes, I'm still alive.

I haven't been around these parts lately, and I'm hoping that that'll change. I'm not going to make any promises, as all of my promises heretofore have been empty. However, I'll try to keep this thing alive.

The other day at work, we played a fun game that reminded me of something I did on this page a few months ago. Way back in October of aught-five, I played a band name game where you mash band names together to get things like
  • G Love & .38 Special Sauce
    or
  • Busta LeAnn Rimes

    That whole post is here, and it was inspired by a post I read at a friend's blog here.

    Anyway, the new game is to combine the name of a band with the name of a fish. Here's some of the better ones we came up with (it helps to say some of them out loud):
  • Cod Stewart
  • Koi Division
  • Tuna Live Crew
  • Skinny Guppy
  • Nine Inch Whales
  • Carp Shoot Carp
  • No Trout
  • Backstreet Kois
  • Squid Vicious
  • Catfish Power
  • Eel O
  • My Life With the Thrill Krill Cult
  • Belle and Sea Basstian
  • Ase of Bass
  • Public Anemone
  • Betta Band
  • Moray-ssey
  • The Housemarlins
  • Salmon Dave
  • Barry Minnowlow

    Then, because we really wanted to be able to use this one, we stretched the rule to allow the use of an album title. That's a whole nother can of worms, but the one in question was
  • Flounder Than Bombs

    Any additions to this list are welcome.

    now playing:

    I'm guessing that Kim Salmon is already a name, so it doesn't count...

    Okay, so you're still alive. But what about that Chris Hosford guy?

    A night out at dinner brought on a few more, which will be added soon, I'd guess. But one that was half mine and half Tad's: Mako Case and her Koi Friends.
