Blogaholic

 

 

"Ten more blogs and even Homer will start to look good"

What’s in a Name?

What’s in a name?

Do you know who Henry McCarty is? How about David Jones? Henry was a lot more famous, and known a tad longer, but David earned a lot more money.

Would it help if i were to tell you that young Henry was rather well-known before he ever turned 16, and became one of America’s original heroes? Though he may not have been as famous as Jesus, like The Beatles were, according to John Lennon in a televised interview (Not to be confused with Joseph Stalin’s son, John Lenin) or as world-widely known Muhammad (who is? Aside from God, he’s the most famous ever! Okay? No need to call a fatwa on me, now!). He was more famous than Wyatt Earp or Jesse James could every dream of. The young, irascible Henry McCarty, a “man’s man”, a gunslinger’s gunslinger, has the one name that is as famous, or infamous, as Robin Hood, Peter Pan and Ishmael (he of  “Call me Ishmael” fame) put together (Robinshael Han?).

Ring a bell yet?

Call me Ismael, will 'ya?

Not ringing a bell? Much like David Bowie, who changed his name because there was this idiot who was hired to play a musician on a new (for the time) concept for a television show; to follow a band as they write, record and play music and as they generally wreck the neighborhood and kiss the dancing girls. David Bowie’s real name is, of course, David Jones, the same as that Monkee of “Daydream Believer” and “Last Train to Clarksville” fame. And, of course, that ridiculous little TV show that morphed into a few movies, “The Monkees”. David Jones, the real musician, liked the original mayhem knife of the old west, the “Bowie” knife, and henceforth was known as David Bowie. And we move on with the old west theme again.

What’s in a name?

Quite a bit, otherwise we’d be listening to David Jones singing “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars”. I don’t think Anne Murray would have covered any of his songs, the way she did with a few of David Jones’s songs, from his Monkees days. Well, to his credit credibility manager’s orders, he reduced his name down to “Davy” – but, as always, I digress (I would probably digress about digressing while writing about digressibilitation (yeah! another new word! I make up a new word for every post that I can, on top of my daily feature “Word of the Day“,where I try to come up with new, fake blog-related words and acronyms).

Spoiler Alert!

However, Mr. McCarty is a little more well known that either Mr. Jones’ is. More infamous than Robin Hood though? Possibly. More infamous than any or all of the American Presidents, dead and alive (the first preferred, the latter only when required)? Yes, yes he was. So, have you heard of Henry McCarty?

What’s in a name?

Aside from brand recognition, like Nike, Coke (no, not that coke…) or Blackberry, when you’ve got a name that stands out, people remember you. So, William Bonney was a lot better a name than Henry McCort, no? How about when he started referring to himself the same way the law was referring to him? The first wanted poster with his picture on it appeared when young Henry was just 16 years old. What a kid! (hint, hint).

Sting, the singer originally of The Police fame, was originally named Gordon Sumner.  Yeah, yeah, I know. But Sting? He was spotted wearing a yellow and black striped shirt while playing at a gig, and Gordon Solomon said “He rather looks like a skinny bee, no?”

Roxanne! You don't have to put on that bug killer...

I’m sure that you’ve heard of the feud between the McCoys and the Hattfields? A long-living feud that was defined by their shoot to kill, shoot on site and rape at will mantra, and was reconciled in the 1980’s by their still living direct descendants (I know, eh?). But still, even over Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp and even Wild Bill Hickok, any of the Younger clan and maybe even more well known than the Kardashian sisters, Henry McCarty changed his name to William H. Bonney.

Dead or Alive!

You see, young Henry McCort finally did change his name to what was on all of those wanted posters. Brand recognition before brands became popular?

Young Henry was, of course, Billy the Kid.

Today’s entry comes via comment from Jacques…

Teachnology

(tee-tsh-nah-log-zhie)

The act of teaching technological material.

The thing about teaching…

If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day.
If you teach a man to fish, he can eat for the rest of his life.
If you give a man a fire, he’s warm for a day.
If you light a man on fire, he is warm for the rest of his life.

Sometimes, it’s just better to not teach at all.

Life as a Meatloaf Song?

You took the words right out of my mouth (all songs by Meatloaf)

Carving up some rock and roll music?

There’s a lot of that going around  (taking words out of people’s mouths, not meatloaf). Sort of like stress… but with a tinge of Tourette’s Syndrome thrown in.

Patient;

“Dr., I’m all stressed out, I feel like my life’s like a pair of open curtains”

Doctor;

“Pull yourself together, son!”

Patient;

“Dr. I fell like a wigwam, and a teepee””

Doctor;

“You’re too tense”  (2 tents, come on, people!)

A Bat Out of Hell

So, Kim Jong il died, and his semi-retarded, 3rd son becomes the new “Dear Leader”. He should be revered as a God by New Year’s Eve if things are normal on the Korean peninsula this week. One bat enters Hell, one emerges and threatens all Hell on democracy. Our new man in NK has designs on joining forces with Iran; 2 of the world’s 7 largest armies, joining to take over the entire Asian panhandle… and, just in time for that December 2012 end of days theories going around. And now Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iranian boss man) wants to control the Strait of Hormuz? He wants to rule the world’s oil reserves, and wipe out Israel at the same time; nothing nutty here, just another bat out of Hell!

Not quite as ugly as Meatloaf...

Paradise by the dashboard light

Oh, to be 17 again, with that same ’69 halfback Mustang! Luckily, I was a teenager long before this abstinence and politically correct garbage came along. There’s a lake in Quebec, an hour’s drive from downtown Ottawa, that is crystal clear, has high cliffs to dive or jump off at varying heights up to 65 feet, waterfalls to sit under, and it’s clothing optional. BC’s Vancouver may have Wreck Beach, but Meech Lake is more beautiful, cleaner and safer for the fairer sex to sunbathe. And, it’s only about a 5 minute’s drive to the big lookout, overlooking Lake Champlain (the original Great Lake). Submarine races, anyone? Paradise by the dashboard lights after dark!

You took the words right outta my mouth

You thief, you! Why are so many people writing articles that have already been written? Why copy other writers’ works when, for the same amount of work, you can write a new, compelling article with facts that someone, somewhere might just need?

Give me my words back!

All revved up and no place to go

Well, it’s not my fault if you’ve got no place to go, but while you’re all revved up, why not take the time to read a few of my other posts, maybe make up a new word for my new feature “Fake word of the day” and leave me some comments, so that we can strike up conversations about anything to do with dogs, social issues or just plain old having fun…

Welcome to my nightmare, uh uh uh uh (well, that’s from Alice Cooper, but I’m pretty sure he ate meatloaf!)

Word of The Day: December 30, 2011

Keystonians;

(key-stone-e-ans)

It's better than conflict oil, and cleaner too!

1) The new public-infused task force setup to ensure that the US never receives ethical oil from Canada, preferring to purchase more expensive, blood-oil from Muslim-controlled nations like Iran, Kazakhstan, and a lot of other “ans”. See also “idiots”.

2) People opposed to the pipeline from Canada to the southern USA to move the oil that the US needs, at a much cheaper price than what is paid for blood-oil.
