My Next Venture – Is it Crap?


There’s nothing like starting out on a new venture that is going to be huge. This is really going to leave a mark on the world. Since leaving my corporate job, I’ve been looking for a project that will leave me satisfied. I thought I had that with my developed geodomain names, but alas, these are nothing compared to my newest project, which has really moved me.

I know this may make me the butt of your jokes, and some of you may pooh-pooh this idea, but I do – do not care that you may think it stinks. This has been brewing for months, but I feel like its finally ready to be released.

Together with the help of a few friends, I am set to push out, a website dedicated to crappy photos and all sorts of shit like that. A friend of mine owns, and I think these two ventures go hand in hand. I will soon travel to the bowels of this country to meet with him in New Jersey, and hopefully we can work together on a successful venture.

Yes… I am shitting you. This foul idea was brewed up over a few beers and I decided to post it (in poor taste). Enjoy your weekend and be safe.

    I still remember a few months ago when somebody offered to sell us the domain, which would have been perfect for your little adventure. But our in house told us there was a scat was trademarked by the Sarasota County Area Transit. Poor guy.

    I’m reading this and thinking what a dumb idea this is. I’m also ‘thinking to myself, “somehow mr. silver will make this work. Alas, it dosen’t matter.

    Poop is actually quite popular on the Net.

    A hilarious and big downloading app on the iPhone is getting a lot of media this week. It’s called “Poop The World”.

    There’s also a funny and top ranked site that’s been around for many years called Poop Report.

    The subject of poop and domain names has been thoroughly examined in this post from 2007 – some great comments too.

    El, as the Kinks are singing RIGHT NOW ON MY COMPUTER:

    “You really got me, now, you got me so I don’t know what I’m doing… [EL] you really got me know, you got me so I can’t sleep at night.”

    I bought into your idea, thinking “El is drinking while he’s working! Cheers!”


    I like RoJack’s response… heh heh.

    I wonder if “” would work for your idea?

    Elliot….I think you are a little too late. Like they say “all the good names are taken”. Did you ever just type in something strange in the whois to just see if it was taken? It usually is. One day I typed in variations of the word “sh-t”. Sure enough, they were all taken along with that great American pastime “far-ts”.

    One enterprising young domainer actually found his niche. He had variations of “sh-t” in every country of the world, and I mean every country. I quit checking after about 40. Sort of like a new twist on the geo approach.

    Did you ever just want to meet some of these guys? I think a guy like that would be a great speaker at a conference to give his “vision” of domaining.
