Selling a name

Discussion in 'Channel Zero' started by imported_Tesseract, Feb 14, 2002.

  1. I dont know why but i just remembered that shit. I knew this kid that used to invent new names all the time, then in full secrecy he would hit up a few tags and throw ups...next move?
    Dude was selling the name to some 12old year kid so he could brag on his school about it.
    Thats a pretty childish thread, but anyway

    wow.....i might be that guy.
    except i'm not selling shit...
    seriously, i have way too many
    alius's...the more the better in fact..
    most of them are just..fairly ridiculous and
    probably only humourous to myself and a
    few friends...i keep about half a
    dozen of them in heavy rotation
    and it usually burns itself out and
    i start writing a whole slew of
    new ones. its too bad you don't live
    near or in my little sphere of weirdness
    tessro....we could have some good times.

    i actually thought about this one.

    if you are famous enough i am sure there would be some buyers.
     
  7. Damn right Brown, i cant really geographicly define that sphere of yours but i think we're pretty close there...however if you and your girl are on for an exotic summertime in the sunny beaches of the meditarenean, you're welcome by me and wife...fun is guaranteed, swimming is cool:)

    what would stop a kid from just claiming the fame of your usual alias?

    (note- i was going to say name, but that would have been lame)
    i hate rhyming.

    ...shit!
     
  12. uuum, the fact that its your name? i mean sooner or later the kid wouls stubble uppon someone that knew you and...well you get it

    so, I've been thinking this one over and I can't find anything wrong with it. Here are 2 sides of the story though...

    In the best case scenario, it's enterprising, ensures some sort of city-wide style or influence and it gets fame for the originator(from the buyers) as well as the new kids(from the public). This assumes that the seller has style and is selling 'legit' names.

    The worst case is a hundred kids all writing names like Cope, Dondi and Seen in wack styles all over a city, which is it's own form of urban blight, and some weak ass 'slum lord' perpetrating style for profit on an entire city...
