So my political cartoons were quite popular. Popular enough that I might be able to branch them off onto a website. That way, I can keep my SYAC and Alex Ze Pirate series free of political mudslinging, and still allow me to voice my opinions about politics and world news and whatever else. Only problem? I need a name for this theoretical website.

I've had a few ideas... such as combining the words Drama and Comics to make "Dramix." Kinda corny, I know. Other ideas include "Andy's Head" and "Random Thoughts." The point is to give me a name that is inclusive enough to fit all the things I'm interested in talking about, not just politics.

I'm worried that if I just leave it to politics, I might get stuck with a website I don't want to maintain after I'm no longer interested after this year's election cycle ends. So I want to be able to nerd rage and vent about pop cultural stuff ALONG with venting about political issues and other drama. Finding a word that fits all those categories isn't easy, and I've been racking my brain for over a week now with no results.

Since I realize that I suck at naming things, I wanted to ask for advice. Any suggestions or ideas are most welcome. :) Help me come up with a name for this (at the moment) theoretical website!

Hmm....

"Nerd Cage"? Like "Nerd Rage", but it's like your own cage to bang around and scream and be pissed off in.

"Think Pen"? Pen like in "ink pen" and also like a "pen" where you keep animals. I think "Ink Tank" is taken...

Ah ha! :lightbulb: "The Rage Page"

I'll come back if I get more.

hm...Dramix actually sounds pretty cool.
But maybe something more...I dunno, official-sounding I guess...like "The Dobson Perspective"...

Dramix has an alright ring to it.

I look forward to you getting back to more nerdy topics... I personally am way more interested on different points of view on nerd stuff. Political stuff is too much of a headache... Things like not thinking Ocarina of Time is the best in the Zelda series and liking Metroid Other M at least allow me to lol at the trolls while I learn about games and people's views on them. XD

Btw when you gonna give us your two cents on Skyward Sword? :)

So far these are my personal favorites:

"Guide to Andrew for Dummies"
"How to access Andy's mind"
"Shortcut to Andy's brain"

These are nice too:

"Voice of the Preston"
"So You Have an Opinion?"
"Andy's Head"
"Life According to Andy"
"Revenge of the Cartoonist"

...and "We Ran Out Of Whiskey Again" but it's probably not what you were aiming for..

TRY THE AMERICAN CLASSIC POLITARTS, infamous for their unsurpisingly distasteful blend of broken promises and seething hatred for progress, cooperation and equality.

It's kind of sad how we keep buying it, though. :\

Maybe "From the mind of Dobson" ?
Or maybe " Perils of a -insert whatever you want here-" like, insert a vocation, like cartoonist or bronie I'm just as bad at naming as you are
Or do what I do when I desperately need a name. Wave your hand around and hit a random key on your keyboard and it has to have that at the beginning of the main word. Then go to something that's daily, like a horoscope or fortune cookie, and base you name off that and the letter .u.

Why not "Mudsling?" No, no- "MudZING!" Or "Mudslinger and Gunslinger."

Actually, "Mudslinger and Gunslinger" sounds like it should be a TV series about a bitter politician and a chronologically displaced cowboy. Coming this fall on PBS!

It is fun how when you osted the first political comic you were explaining how you won't be making more of them even though it would be very tempting because of the popularity. Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to make fun of you here, people are allowed to have a change of heart. But this is one of the reasons why I don't much like commenting my work. Even though I don't have an audience, I'd still be nervous that I'm contradicting myself.
