What happens on a name.com Google Doc


At name.com we use Google Docs ugh fine Google Drive all the time to collaborate on projects. Most of the time these collaborative documents are free of any shenanigans, but every now and then a shenanigan party breaks out.

That was the case Tuesday, when everyone in the office had access to a company potluck signup spreadsheet and several people were making edits at once. Click through for full size and behold the shenanigans.

Screen Shot 2013-07-16 at 9.38.52 AMWe have a non sequitur column header about color choice (perhaps aMonty Python reference?). We have people signing up to bring NNOOTTHHIINNGG!, tap water, and early ’90s rap classics. We also have a discussion about whether or not kids would be on the potluck menu.

And we had a few well-adjusted human beings offering to bring actual dishes to the potluck, so that ...

accidental2

Our last post outlining some accidentally inappropriate domains did very well. Since you Name.com’ers love it so much, we thought we’d put together a few additional domain names that people didn’t completely think through. They range from ITScrap, to LesBocages.com, to MasterBaitOnline.com. Check out the list:

The startup culture scavenger hunt


We’ve poked fun at startup culture in recent weeks (like here, here, and here), but we’re not exactly wearing suits and ties and sitting in a maze of cubicles. name.com may not be a true startup these days, but we’ve got some startup tendencies.

1. Interns

Startups love interns. They especially love unpaid interns. But we’ve only got one intern: Alex Kehr*, who brings us coffee and serves as a makeshift footrest for our marketing manager, Ashley Forker. This will look great on his résumé.

Selling sex isn’t as easy as it looks


We like to give our competition a hard time about selling sex and objectifying women. It’s kind of what they’re known for.

But sometimes we’re willing to climb off our high horse and succumb to the latest marketing trends. We’re willing to sell sex, too. Trouble is, we don’t have Danica Patrick or Bar Rafaeli on our side.

We just have this guy:

The community evangelist in his natural sexy habitat.

The community evangelist and aspiring sex symbol in his natural habitat.

That’s Jared Ewy, our community evangelist. He may not fit into YOUR definition of sexy, but at name.com we believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

In Jared’s words, “Sexy is so hot. It’s the flesh, the curves, round things. And nature. I think. Yeah, I think nature is sexy, but I’m not sure how you consummate that…”

I couldn’t have said it better myself...

The Best Super Bowl Commercials. We parody one that is not.


It was the ultimate Superbowl Sunday. The game was good (except for that awful missed call in the end zone) and we can all feel good that the losing Harbaugh brother can at least be happy for the other, winning Harbaugh brother. It was also nice to see some decent commercials. Companies paid upwards of $4 million bucks for their thirty-second ad, so you’d hope that they’d air something to remember. Right now, in kind of a loose top six, we have fond memories of:

Samsung’s Next Big Thingsuperbowl ad samsung

Budweiser’s Horse Love Ad

Space Babies from Kia

Amy Poehler for Best Buy

Tide’s Joe Montana Stain

And we’ll even admit that GoDaddy did a good job with their .CO “your big idea” commercial. We’ll share it with you as long as come to name.com to get that idea online...

Elevator Ghost Prank, Gangnam Style Christmas Lights, Kate Middleton Pregnant on trenD


This is the news you can use and how to use the news. Domain names abound for the biggest stories, including Kate Middleton’s pregnancy, the most frightening prank in history and Christmas lights gone Gangnam Style. Actually, I think a Gangnam Style Christmas would be a blast. You’d have horsey dancing during carols, dangerous boat rides, hot tubbing and random explosions. Also known as just another night with Lindsay Lohan. We have a brief bit on her too…
