List the name of a pro athlete (from any sport) that you always thought had a cool sounding name. One athlete's name per person, per post until we get to 100. Then we'll eliminate them in the same fashion -- one by one -- until the last cool-sounding-named cat is left standing. I remember lots of players with cool names back in the olden days, so I'm good for a dozen or so names without putting much thought into it. Ok, here goes:
1. Mercury Morris
But it's a lot cooler than the ones the homeless people on the street are sleeping in.....
...would it really hold up to 300 days a year of Cascadian rain? Or tornados in the Midwest. Or hurricanes down in the Southeast?
Use your own judgement... but on the surface, it looks like a cool enough design, given the source material.
Just list the band names that you think are the coolest. Keep it to a list of 10 names & discuss why you've chosen those names too if you wanna. Keep in mind that these names don't have to be from bands that you like either, just decide going by their names alone, alright? For example, you could love Katrina And The Waves as a band name all whilst despising the band's music, ya see? I'm gonna start this thing out with 2 lists of my own faves just to get things started.
Alice In Chains.
A Fine Frenzy.
Florence + The Machine.
Jars Of Clay.
More to come of course. I can't wait to see your top 10 alphabetized lists too. Keep 'em coming even if you don't have a complete list yet, alright?
Whether Classic Rock, Country Rock, Pop Rock, Hard Rock, Glam Metal, Heavy Metal or some other subgenre, what are your earliest memories, in chronological order, of:
- your top 15 most memorable rock concert dates (even if you have to look up to be accurate)
- name of group
- venue or city

This will be very interesting to get a good idea of what each poster's favorite subgenres are.
