Hostess Bankrupt, Wii U Debut, Guy Fieri Bad Restaurant Review on trenD

Here again to marry trends and domains…

Will Hostess come out alive after mediation with the union? It really should do all it can to avoid dying off before…before a very important change in the law. See more in our latest trenD (the video below), along with Guy Fieri’s retort to a SCATHING review of his restaurant in New York City. We also talk about the new Nintendo Wii U. It’s getting good reviews, but it’s not the gaming console itself that we want to criticize…

The General Petraeus Affair Circle, Patrice Wilson, Elmo’s Kevin Clash on trenD

Here we go! Marrying trends and domain names!

This week is mostly a follow up to last week, when we covered several stories that were just in their infancy. Kevin Clash aka Elmo got some good news following the investigation into his love life; Jill Kelley, who seems to be have more military connections than Patton, is spicing up the Pentagon; and then there’s Thanksgiving, the holiday-turned-Internet music sensation that is poisonous enough to require an antidote. We offer one here…

Rated PG-13. No, really.

Nicole Westbrook Thanksgiving Song, Elmo’s Kevin Clash, General Petraeus Affair on trenD

Again we preside over the marriage of domains and trends…

I should warn you that this episode has some curse words. They are mild but just something to be aware of while you’re watching at your workplace or entertaining the family with the latest on the David Patreus affair. Although they may not want to hear about the stunning allegations against Elmo, or at least the puppeteer who plays him. (But that would be funny if Kevin Clash blamed the little red puppet for the abuse.)

In our effort to bring together domain names and trends, we were surprised to find that sockpuppet.tv is available, as is internalaffairs.co, so the domain names are there for your blog or website about the latest news–or whatever you’d use autotunedeath.com for. We’d hope to comment on the latest Patrice Wilson song. What’s that? Learn more here…

Nate Silver, Angry Birds Star Wars, Nexus 4 on trenD

We marry trends and domain names…

Before we get started, should we just dump this thing? We like doing this little show, but it varies on the feedback. Sometimes it has a 1000 views, sometimes it has 20. It’s one of those things where we need your help. Keep it or Kill it?

Anyway, this week we’re hit with another Angry Birds and it’s STILL a good thing. Rovio’s success is on the wings of…well, you get it. Aside from that, the entire nation has been introduced to a data geek named Nate Silver. His 538 blog was way more precise than any of the traditional media, accurately predicting Obama’s re-election in a methodical, state-by-state manner. Finally, the Nexus 4 is here. The reviews are mostly good…

We Get Extreme on Trampolines: (Some of) Name.com Gets to Play

It all came down to who was on Shannon’s good side. She won second place in our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest and the prize to take seven of her coworkers to Big Time Trampoline Fun Center. Yes, we’re grown ups, or so we thought–who are we kidding, none of us have truly grown up. That’s why we’re at work all the time. The real world scares the hell out of us. At least at name.com we know what to do and what to expect: We make websites work for our customers. But out there…out there in the non-virtual world, how would we behave? At first it was a bit shaky, but then we found our roots by going back to you, the customer. We’d like you to judge who’s trampoline trick is best. Please.

Election 2012, Guy Fawkes, I Told My Kid I Ate All Their Halloween Candy Again on trenD

We marry trends and domains…

And this week it’s pretty light…aside from the election. The election. The election. The election. It’s all we’re hearing about, so the least you can do to celebrate it ending IS VOTE. It’s pretty simple and you’ll feel good about doing your part of the democratic process. And you get a sticker.

Also, Jimmy Kimmel is back with another edition of “I Told My Kid I Ate Their Halloween Candy.” At first it’s sad but by the end you’ll see children who very well could grow up to save the world. If anything, they may grow up to be conscionable rebels, but hopefully more successful than Guy Fawkes. November 5th is Guy Fawkes Day, a commemoration of a failed rebellion against King James I.

Rated NC 17 for No Candy for kids under 17.

Is this bad as in good or just bad as in bad?

When you’re out sick you don’t expect others to go way out of their way to pick up your slack. Sometimes they have to because, say, you’re a firefighter and that’s just what needs to get done. But what Sean did with our little show trenD (marrying domain names and trends) is definitely one of the more flattering things a coworker has done for me. Or is it? So what we do with trenD is have fun lampooning current events while tying them with available domain names. Here’s a more popular one for reference. Below is what Sean was able to do with still photos of me as I slumbered in a cloud of cough medicine.

I’m flattered in a freaked out sort of way. Thank you Sean, master of the motion picture.

Rated PG as in Pretty Geeky

Domain Names and Trends with iPad Mini, Windows 8, Trump vs Colbert, Timberlake with Biel on trenD

Again marrying domains and trends…

Today it’s come out that Stephen Colbert has offered a not-so-tantylizing treat to Donald Trump. We’ll spare you the details, but we will let you know of a good domain name to start your blog about such controversial things. While the Justin Timberlake + Jessica Biel marriage owned the entertainment headlines, an even bigger story emerged in tech. Of course we’re on it, talking about Windows 8 as well as Apple’s latest gadget, the iPad Mini.

Rated R for Really Awful Suggestion by Stephen Colbert

Katy Perry, Jodi DiPiazza, Madonna, Google Stocks and Doodle on trenD

We marry domain names and trends…

Imagine if your car’s wheels were something you completely overlooked and you had no concept of how they worked. It would seem like you shouldn’t even be driving. Well that’s the case with domain names: they turn the Internet into a functioning and ubiquitous convenience, but we feel they just don’t get the credit they deserve. So with this little program we showcase how domains can work in our culture, throwing a spotlight on their incredible usability.

So today, you’ll hear about available domain names for Madonna’s poor choice of performance accessories, as well as how you can use domains to share all the latest news on Google’s tumbling stock price. We also bring to you a domain name for the incredible story of an autistic girl and her dream of singing with pop star Katy Perry.

Rated PG for Pricey Google.

Red Bull Stratos, Bad Lip Reading of Debate, and Staff Fall Shows Suggestions on trenD

We marry trends and domains…

Jim Lehrer, the long-time frontman for PBS NewsHour, is not (as far as we know) known for comedy. But when some YouTubers who apparently have a lot of time and creativity do a lip reading to the first presidential debate, you just might lose yourself in laughter with Lehrer. We cover that important news, as well as the ridiculous free fall that was Felix Baumgartner jumping from 128,000 feet above the earth. He traveled at speeds of up to 833 miles per hour, and somehow is still alive. We celebrate his feat, and then bring up an important question beget by it.

Finally, we ask some Namers their favorite Fall TV shows. These people don’t have much free time, so if they recommend something, you know it’s got to be good.

Rated R for Really damn crazy dude leaping from space.
