Domain Days

A bunch of random domains that I own, which, when clicked on, redirect back to this site, for now: viewsource.tv, azineaboutyoutube.com, seattlespeak.com, fimicolous.com, ficklecorp.com, remoter.tv, saltychewy.tv, voyeuse.tv, rexsorgatz.com, watchingparis.com, realfakereal.com. It's like a history of forgotten and future projects. Fess up, what are your weird domains?

I own starttherevolutionwithoutme.com (named after the movie). I think I've let all my other weird ones lapse.

I smell meme! Quick name this (domains as a definition of who I am) before Andy gets a hold of it.

My domains are:

tvinjapan.com
gavinpurcell.com
internetfunny.com
popbubblepop.com
tvineurope.com
snackrankings.com
bestadever.com
koolate.com
imintoit.com
popubot.com
geekworkout.com
writeonmama.com

It's interesting to see the things I've actually worked on, the things I've thought about working on, and what I might work on sometime in the future.

Your list is even more fun, because it's like a game to figure out what the hell each one was/is going to be!

Back from when I wanted to do video blogging. Not sure what to use it for quite yet.

oxfordcomma.org! Holy crap that is a great domain!

I guess when we die, and folks we will, our unused domain names be another sign of a failed life?
'Domain....name...transfer' is the new 'Rosebud'

I've been holding onto:
howtosurvivethezombieapocalypse.com

Didn't really think it through. If the zombie apocalypse ever happens I doubt broadband connections will maintained for very long.

The first step in ANY business project is to buy a domain name, of course. Therefore I have about 50 forgotten domains from failed attempts. A few: buzzub.com, piku.org, upstairs.org, haroldandkumar2.com (ha!), cheapestbeer.com, hackpackers.com ... I could go on and on.

So many horrible business ideas, so little time:

FlickrWhore(s).com
Feedcrush.com
Hackalytics.com
BaseballGods.com
50Sources.com (my version of Brijit.com)

This is depressing...

cbalums.com
future4th.com
googlezon.net
hivemines.com
journalistx.com

in a impulse moment, i purchased zeitguyst.com and zeitgirlst.com with thoughts of an empire or some sort. like i'll ever have the time for that.

Matt, you should set googlezon.net up with a mailserver... I'd use robin@googlezon :)

posted by robin at 2:50 PM on April 15, 2008

idea : nerdy charity website - auction off your unused and worthless domain names to help those that need the money.

posted by dave at 5:57 PM on April 15, 2008

Olen - I like grumpler.com. What was it going to be?

Maybe there's something in that - the stories of lost domains. PostSecret for domain names?

Rex, I think this was one of our first bar conversations.

Got a bit of a domain registration habit, and I don't even know which ones qualify as weird anymore:

absono.us (look up absonous)
alienabductions.com
apeshallnot.com
blackmailr.com
blogtwitter.net (registered pre-Twitter)
disemvowelr.com
eequilibrium.com
followeffect.com
furthestfrom.com
irambi.com (seemed clever at the time, don't recall why)
moodping.com
pingosaur.us
scarycheeseburger.com

...and that's not even the half of it.
