PSY Gangnam Style, Black Friday Prank, Fallon Rashida Jones Holiday Medley on trenD


It’s been busy around here. Cyber Monday has everyone running and giddy about being at a cool company that people actually like. None of us can imagine working somewhere we didn’t like. But ruminating about good and bad companies is not why we’re here today. We’re here to deliver our marriage of trends and domain names. Our first story is courtesy of Jimmy Fallon, a talented guy who, with Rashida Jones, blows up all your favorite top 40 songs into a holiday medley. We have a domain for that. Also, we have another run in with Gangnam Style and Psy, the Korean megastar who has dethroned Justin Bieber as the most viewed video on YouTube. Pudgy men everywhere rejoice. We also discuss Cyber Monday sales, and how ours is really, really big.

Rated PG for Pretend Gems

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…

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

Kate Middleton, NFL Replacement Refs, SNL “Gangnam Style” vs “Call Me Maybe” on trenD


This is where Domain Names meet trends…

And oh man has it been ugly on the football field. The play has been decent, but it’s the refereeing that is causing much consternation. With the regular refs striking the new replacement refs (who should be much admired for their death-defying efforts) are struggling with the rules. We’re surprised nobody has been killed. Meanwhile, it’s pretty in France, where England’s naked princess has been pasted across the tabloids. And now what…sex scenes? That’s what they say, but a royal lawsuit has things tied up. Whatever…you go you young, wealthy royals. You know it’s gotta get old acting prim and proper all the time. Just ask Harry.

And finally, Saturday Night Live is back, and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane does a fine job hosting…along with a new ...

Allison Pill, Kate Middleton, Britney Spears, iphone 5 on trenD


Domains and Trends in one! In this episode…

It’s something that really should be a major part of this year’s elections: Why is it so awful to see a naked breast? Princess Kate Middleton shed her royal garb and a French tabloid posted the pics. Now the palace is ticked and all the world in a fury. Why? It’s the Puritans isn’t it? Those skin-covering sin police who dressed beautiful natives in Big Dog t-shirts. Dang it. It’s wrong. And then there’s the iPhone 5. People say they are disappointed, but analysts say there should still be about 6,000,000 pre-orders.

Finally, the Innocence of Muslims is a really bad video that no one should get excited about.

Rated PG, for reals.

Celebrity Death Hoax, Chris Kluwe and All Things Cool and trenD!


Not going to lie to you. This one is long. But there’s so much to talk about. If you make it through the whole thing we’ll buy you a soda. First off we have people fake dying everywhere. It seems to be following successful black actors. Urkel has been put on fake death watch.

Even bigger news is that football is back. I know the world wonders why we watch American football instead of Most-everybody-in-the-world football, but there’s just something so spectacular about it. Anything can happen, and Kris Kluwe and Brandon Weedon–especially Brandon Weedon–prove that. Also, we mourn the passing of Denzel Washington.

Rated G for Giggles.

Carrie Reichert, Prince Harry, Andy Roddick, Taylor Swift, Devin Smith…This is trenD


I don’t show up to the office for one day out of 365 (is this a Leap Year?) and look what happens: Someone talented does my job.

Sean takes on trenD. He’s the guy who shoots and edits it anyway, so he’s been dying to do the things he can only try and direct me to do. For one, enunciate and, another, incorporate more pretty people. With Carrie Reichert, I think he’s succeeded. Carrie is one of the women who misplaced her clothes with Prince Harry. She reveals more about the royalty (if that’s possible) and inspires greatness in all of us. From there, Sean goes to higher ground (the only place you can go from drunken nudity in Las Vegas) and launches into Roddick’s retirement, Taylor Swift’s new single and what LeBron James is calling the “catch of the year.”

Eastwooding, American Idol, Mitt Romney, Honey Boo Boo on trenD


Props to Clint Eastwood for being the most entertaining part of a three-day multimedia extravaganza. He ambled out on the RNC stage and tore up the crowd with his Bob Newhart-like skit of talking to an invisible Obama. However, in doing that, he unwittingly created a new trend. There was planking, Tebowing and now Eastwooding, which is venting your frustrations on an empty chair. Luckily for us–and very exciting indeed–President Obama shows up in this episode of trenD. He relaxes in his chair and watches the trends go down…like Honey Boo Boo beating Mitt Romney in the ratings, Randy Jackson leaving American Idol, and just some of the domain names that relate to the hottest news.

Rated DB for a minor insult to those Bluetooth users who just don’t get that it’s not as cool as they think.

Office Reality Show Episode 3: The Move


Will a “flat” or “collaborative” office environment work? We’re going to give it a try here at name.com, but the initial few days have seen a few hitches. For example, Web Development has always enjoyed their own side of the office, while Customer Support, Marketing and Operations have been sequestered to the other. To explain what this really means, you have to understand that Dev has this fun-loving and sometimes loud personality that can grate on Support. Those in Support are often nailed to the phone trying to engage someone ten time zones away. So having the two in the same room, with Operations and Marketing kind of the emotional middle child, could be interesting. Or a complete fail. Here, we begin to tell the story of (as marketing has coined it) “Operation Slide.”

Elvis Presley, Vanessa Bryant, Mayim Bialik, Melky Cabrera & Rich Kids. This is trenD.


It’s easy to hate rich kids, but much easier to want to be them. You can do both with this blog that’s taking off (and seems poised to spawn another reality show).  What else is happening? Well, somehow Kobe Bryant is still married and, of equal incredulity, the San Francisco Giants have somehow let another juicer slip by their radar. I’m not saying Melky Cabrera’s rise to athletic success was suspicious, because he could get really mad and kill me. And there’s much more…including Elvis Presley and another living legend, Mayim Bialik. (If you’re having trouble placing her, she was Blossom in the 90s show “Blossom” and has been appearing on The Big Bang theory.)

Rated BC for free Birth Control.
