But What Genre?
I herewith present you with my latest silly band name:

Conceptual Artichoke

I'm not sure what sort of music I should imagine them playing. "Songs" composed entirely of the rests in Backstreet Boys songs? Television themes as rendered by the mystery of Bulgarian voices? Or perhaps something with a Jewish twist, in honor of the Roman ghetto's most famous vegetable.

Current Location: 85704
Mode: fried but kosher

Conceptual Artichoke's good, but not as good as Jenna's Orange Doid.

I was in university, first year, writing a paper on...ummmmm...Frankenstein, I think, maybe. As was my expedient but corrosive custom through all of undergrad, I was writing it the night before it was due. I touch-type extremely rapidly (100+ wpm), and I literally fell asleep while typing. I was awakened a few moments later by the clacking of the keys on my (notoriously noisy) Apple keyboard, and looked at the screen to see the cursor flashing at the end of something like this:

There is a subtle yet critical significance to the symbolism here, but it wasn't Jenna's Orange Doid.

Obviously, I had fallen asleep somewhere between "symbolism" and "but". I knocked on the door of the guy in the next dorm, telling him we had to form a bad college band called "Jenna's Orange Doid", and plaster the campus with posters saying "JOD is coming!" and "Are you JOD-fearing?" and suchlike.

We never did. That's probably for the best.

I liked the name already, but the backstory makes it so, so much better! I don't type that fast, but I've sleep-typed a few lines in that manner. Nothing so fun or clear, however.
