Pearl Harbor

(I had forgotten this until recently, I think it was a band that a friend and I were going to start if we went to Japan... Or something. It doesn't really make sense to me now.)

I kept a text file a while back of band name ideas I had.  I just located it for the purpose of posting in this thread and realized that they're all nerdy shit I got out of comic books (and that there are only 4 of them, so my attention span for that project was fairly short).  And here they are:

Thor Needs Virgins
Alien Love Messiah
Skartaris Nightlife
Freakbeat Vivaldi


Also, on another board recently there was a thread with a bunch of crappy band name suggestions and the only one that caught my eye was Goatsoda, which tickled me for some bizarre reason.  I don't think I'd listen to a band named Goatsoda but I can picture them being the soundtrack to a new Mountain Dew commercial or something.

My buddy Mike has always said that if he were in a band it would be called Naked Love Beat.  Knowing Mike, their sound would probably be somewhere between OMD and early Duran Duran.

That was from Grant Morrison's run on Doom Patrol, from the late '80s.  Issue #23, "The Butterfly Collector."  This is I believe after the strange meta-narrative of Orqwith (in which a group of philosophers write a book about a fictional city that becomes real, then, guess what?  Their fictional city starts to become real and take over their reality) and during his run-up to the Brotherhood of Dada trying to rewrite the universe and physical law according to dadaist principles.  Grant Morrison is a weirdo.  Anyway, this issue was the first of two about this guy named Red Jack.  This guy:



He's kidnapped one of the Doom Patrol members from the hospital and brought her to his lair.  Oh, and here's how they find his lair (I find this fascinating, but I'm a nerd--you can skip it if you want).  

"Crazy Jane" runs into a bookstore, grabs an armload of books, cuts the pages into tatters with some scissors and throws them into the air.  

Quote from: "Crazy Jane"
Random words.  Cut phrases.  It's a kind of divination, like casting the runes or reading the flight of birds.  Only with words.  

Shuffle them.  See how they fall?  Like snow.  

...You see now?  The presence begins to reveal itself in the casual rearrangement of the text fragments.  It becomes a kind of seance to contact the living.  Listen:  

Strange doctors of pain. History, wake up!  

Alchemy starts in the hour of the knife.  The butterfly labyrinth was no accident.  

The skinned retina I plucked from my mother's forehead when I was a boy.  Oh have you seen the devle with his violet mikerscope and aesthetic scalpul.  The satanic Dr. Stanley favours the entrails of fear.  

The appeal of the Michaelmas girls subjected to the murdering martyrs.  Only a grave in Mitre Square.  

The mortuary in old Montague street in which he weighs the souls of fireworks or galaxies.  The autumn of terror falls to pieces.  Ruthless prophecies of the secret city.  The blue signature of strange attractors.  Good night, Mary.  Up sidles Jack.

The word is murder, old boss.


So they conclude from this that the culprit is Jack the Ripper.  They open the nearest door and step into his lair.

The decor is bizarre--butterflies encased in glass pinned to cork boards cover every wall.  The butterflies' wings still move, feebly--Red Jack apparently feeds on pain.  And there's music.  "The music comes in waves.  Freakbeat Vivaldi sampled and spliced together with the screams of murdered women and butterflies.  And wedding bells.  The clamor of wedding bells."

Grant Morrison is always interesting.  He does tend to revisit the same ideas quite a bit, but they're different, more interesting ideas than many comic creators are exploring, so I guess I can forgive that.

Anyway, that's a long enough derail, back to the cool band names.

RoyBiggins, after reading this article, I would like to suggest that you call your band "Balls Into Bone".

One day Greg was drunk and wrote the words smooth jew onto a piece of paper, when he rose he saw the paper and did not know what the fuck the words could mean. Everyday since he has refered to a good drunken idea which reveals it's flaws in sobriety as a "smooth jew". He told the story better else where but balls if I can be bothered to look for it.


Do not choose your final four wisely. Our hearts can not take this tension.

yeah, i just read the story actually. i have been reading threads in the wrong order, apparently. or rather, threads got bumped in the wrong order.

and by the way wally, i kinda want to go to bed tonight with my post count at 9999 and then come back tomorrow and make some insane post that leaves it at 10000 and then leave again.

but who am i kidding, i've got nothing. nothing at all. my 10000th post will probably be anticlimactic on a level unseen since star wars episode one.

when i hadn't yet seen this movie, my friend described it to me thus: "the biggest disappointment of my life". in retrospect the description - and the sadness in his eyes as he said it - holds true (to say nothing of its near poetic simplistic beauty).

You should probably just post a large, disappointing part of the script from Episode 1.  Or, make a list of the most anticlimactic things you can think of.  Or just a single line that says "Fuck this, Bitches.  10K and I'm out!" and then change your name to Jack and talk about Queensryche for 10K more.

the only problem being that the script from episode one is too flimsy for any of it to be called "large"

in fact, did they even write a script first? or was it more of a scrawl-on-bar-napkin type deal?
