Call me a rude name

Tonight, ManFriend and I are seeing the fabulously deep-voiced Graveyard Train:

I’m not sure they’d like being called fabulous. It doesn’t sound hairy enough.

And last week we saw Mikelangelo and the Tin Star. This is one of my favourites from Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen (especially when you get to 4.39… HOT!):

Which means my birthday has been bookended by two of my favourite live bands.

But now I have a request for you. SuperCat and I went to roller derby last weekend and I want to go to their next fresh meat tryouts. Hopefully I’m not too old to smash tough ladies on skates. But first, I need a crackingly rude name. Suggestions?

  1. Mikelangelo grew up around the corner from where I grew up.

    The problem is that Kim-related names are all taken. Kimpenetrable, and so on. (For some reason I can’t think of any others.)
    I’ll have to think.

  2. Nipplegate.

    Lady Gomorrah.

    Feels on Wheels …

    (I give up; I don’t like where it’s going)

  3. The Vagindicator

  4. I’m still thinking but there’s some good inspiration to be found via http://rollergirlthebook.com/name_generator

    Hey, I was there on Sat too! Been checking out skates online to buy ever since. I have my name sorted…but I seriously doubt it will ever be revealed. In search of inspiration for your name I came across this http://vaginaskatepark.com/ No sure what, but I think your name should be about the vagina.

  6. I am going to see the Central Coast league tomorrow night – Little Goody Two Skates VS Axles of Evil.

  7. I decided my skate name would be ‘Emily spankhurts’ not that that helps you. I’ll have a think, I love a dirty pun.

    • Wow, looking up American suffragists provides a rich vein of absurdity to mine (Unfortunately most people probably would not get the references, including me.) Names like
      LILA HARDAWAY MEADE VALENTINE and
      FANNY GARRISON VILLARD
      JANE GREY CANNON SWISSHELM
      LUCRETIA COFFIN MOTT
      and of course AMELIA BLOOMER.
      There are an awful lot of vaguely militaristic-sounding names there.

  8. NipNip. No one will know whether you’re a drunkard or a nipple

  9. My girlfriend flew to Sydney to see Amanda Palmer do her album launch at the start of the year and came home raving about how she was totally upstaged by her support act – Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen! They sound amazing, I’d love to catch a live show if they ever come to the west coast ^_^
