Name the New Phlux CD
If you had to come up with suggestions for what Phlux could call their new cd (remembering the last one was called The Negative Album) what would it be? I think this could be one interesting post. LOL Just don't be pissed if they don't go with your suggestions.

Chris, I totally disagree with the suggestion of Top Heavy, especially since I know how that suggestion started. Other than that your ideas rock. :)

In that case I am BEGGING Phlux to please name the new cd Top Heavy please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

oh shaddup chris, I know too how that CD title suggestion came about and I don't like it either. I completely agree with La on this one. Sorry Chris.
posted by Laura Woodman on May 03, 2005 05:54PM

Thank you Laura. You are the bomb... Patricia thinks the name of the CD should be, "Let the truth be told." Anywho, I am begging that it is not Top Heavy, if it is I will kick your butt, Clint, Cody, and Stu. I love you guys. You guys rock.
posted by Latricia Saucier on May 03, 2005 06:04PM

Actually, I will kick Chris's butt instead, since it was his suggestion.
posted by Latricia Saucier on May 03, 2005 06:05PM

I would just like to remind Clint Cody and Greg that I have more history with all three of them then either Laura or Latricia, and that my suggestion Top Heavy is a very cool sounding suggestion and implies many things. The fact I am willing to take a butt kicking or two for this should show how much I believe in it.

Remember that commercial? "Dude you gellin'?" "Totally gellin'". I think Top Heavy could be the new "cool" in slang. "Dude, you top heavy?" "Totally top heavy" "Hey man you top heavy?" "You know it".

So in closing I feel Top Heavy would be the way to go and the cover of the cd could be a big old Phluxed up style tank. Totally Top Heavy!!!

posted by Chris Hancock on May 03, 2005 06:19PM

So I know Clint and Cody have agreed on a name for the new cd so I'm waiting with baited breath to know what it is.
posted by Chris Hancock on May 08, 2005 11:35PM

It is not how well you know someone Chris in order to use that slang as a new title. I think it is how well you respect someone. You and I could be debating the title for days and possibley even years to come. I know that you are not the type of person to let up on a debate issue however, if you know me well I prefer not lose in any debate issue.
Nomatter what we think the guys will choose which ever title they prefer, and I hope that it is something cooler than "top heavy".
Now that I have mention that, I hope it is something better than "top heavy", I would still buy the CD, because I respect phlux and there interest in music. They are also friends which I support. So whether or not I end up liking the title of the CD I would still buy it because I want to always support phlux in everything they choose to do with their music because they are good friends of mine.
So in conclusion Chris you and I will just have to deal with the fact that we are not going to agree with the fact that your new slang "Top Heavy" is cool. In fact it sucks as a slang. Maybe a new dictionary should be on order for you!
posted by Latricia Saucier on May 15, 2005 02:43PM

LOL I love you La but it's just funny to me that you'll tell me I need a dictionary and your grammar was that bad.
posted by Chris Hancock on May 17, 2005 07:47PM

Okay I don't even know the joke, but whatev. Top Heavy, in theory, is a cool name for a cd. Give it up.
posted by Jess Chahanovich on May 18, 2005 01:29PM

Thanks Jess.

See guys somebody else likes it too. Now THAT is Top Heavy.

posted by Chris Hancock on May 18, 2005 09:41PM

I'm going to back Latricia on this one. Top Heavy, if misconstrued, is demeaning to women, especially if one is "top heavy" I also know that top heavy has other meanings, but the one that people most associate with the phrase is someone who has a big chest. I don't care if you agree with me or not, chris, but if you care anything about Latricia (and Patricia, for that matter) as a friend, you will drop this whole issue. There, that's my whole two cents on this issue, for whatever its worth. :)
posted by Laura Woodman on May 19, 2005 05:51PM

No offense, but this is kind of a silly argument, especially here....and besides, isnt the saying "SEX, drugs and rock and roll?????"
posted by StU aRt on May 20, 2005 09:36AM

Ahhh....the insanity of a politically correct society that we live in today. Personally, I did not even connect the phrase "Top Heavy" to anything sexual until someone got upset and claimed that it was demeaning. But what am I thinking???--it is our responsbility to survey everyone in the world before we decide to do pretty much anything in order to make sure that someone won't take offense. The fact of the matter is, is that virtually anything can be twisted, construed, or interpreted in such a way that it can be labeled as offensive. However, the question is: Are people genuinely offended when things like this happen? Or, do they feel that they should be offened for some reason? Or, perhaps they are simply "cultivators of controversy", who get satisfaction from trying to find ways for things to be offensive so that they can cry and whine about it? I'm not labeling anyone in this thread, I am just posing questions about this instance and the broader topic of how more and more people are taking offense to more and more things in our world each day.

This reminds me of the story about Orson Welles, William Randolph Hearst, and Rosebud!
posted by Zach Beane on May 24, 2005 08:48PM

xach, your post sounds like the beginning to a great joke!
posted by StU aRt on May 25, 2005 12:11PM

It's not a joke, it is a historical fact!

Citizen Kane (written by, directed by, and starring Orson Welles) is about a newspaper baron who whispers the word "Rosebud..." on his deathbed. The rest of the movie retraces his life and rise to power, and there is a character whose quest is to find out exactly what "Rosebud" means. In the end it becomes clear that Rosebud doesn't really mean anything.

Anyway, the newspaper baron, Charles Foster Kane, was very clearly modeled on William Randolph Hearst, who also owned a huge newspaper network and was one of the most powerful men in America. He also was a womanizer, and the rumor around Hollywood was that "Rosebud" was the pet name he used for the genitals of one of his mistresses. When "Citizen Kane" came out and used the word, he was infuriated. He tried to have the movie destroyed before it was ever shown publicly.

(Hearst Corporation is still a huge media entity in America, owning a dozen newspapers, a few dozen magazines, some TV networks, etc.)

"Rosebud" by itself doesn't seem like a word to get angry about. But, like "Top Heavy", it may have private meaning that is intensely insulting to some people.

How about "The Trouble with Naming My Chinchilla 'Sarcasm'"?
posted by Cody Phipps on May 27, 2005 02:43PM

Wow its been almost a month since I suggested Top Heavy and look what's happened lol.

But I wanted to clear the whole debacle up for the record.

One day at the Phipps place Clint, me, and my buddies (all female) were shooting pool and coming up with wacky suggestions for the next Phlux cd title. Somewhere in the mix one of my friends who is, shall we say endowed, missed her shot and I said it's cos she's so top heavy (meaning big breasted in this instance). But then I suggested Top Heavy as a serious album title.

Here's why.

I like the way it sounds, I like the way it rolls off the tongue. It's easy to remember, I think it's fun to say. To me I don't mean boobs when I speak them, unless in a medical sense. I would like to see Top Heavy become the new "cool". To me its "a little uneven, but still holding up", and to me that's cool.

I hope that straightened it out.

posted by Chris Hancock on May 28, 2005 11:53PM

Gee Chris, that really clears that up for us all... :) but still those of us "in the know" know what Top Heavy *really* means. Like Zach said in his post, its all in how you take it. It could mean something to one person, but not another. Top Heavy is the equivalent to "Rosebud" in this instance.
posted by Laura Woodman on May 30, 2005 07:22PM

Now how about some more legitimate suggestions for album titles, instead of this ongoing tangent about Top Heavy. C'mon all...lets come up with some good ones!!

posted by Laura Woodman on May 30, 2005 07:30PM

Ok Laura 3 things

1 yes obviously Top Heavy is the equivelent of Rosebud here, that's why Xach told us the story.

2 since Top Heavy *STARTED that day as a touchy subject, which causes some to have mixed feelings* I felt I portrayed the incident honestly without embarrassing anybody.

3. I agree let's come up with some more ideas for the new cd title, I just hope they turn out to be better then Positive Album.

posted by Chris Hancock on May 30, 2005 08:33PM

PHLUX have tentatively decided on the name of the CD. We're going to keep you guessing a bit longer, though...

Enough with the filibustering--let's give "Top Heavy" a fair up or down vote!
posted by -- on Jun 22, 2005 12:35AM

should I abstain?
posted by Chris Hancock on Jun 22, 2005 10:46PM

I would abstain if I were you. lol. and count me as a NO vote for Top Heavy. :)
posted by Laura Woodman on Jul 18, 2005 05:41PM

LOL I don't wanna abstain, I vote YES on Top Heavy.
posted by Chris Hancock on Jul 19, 2005 09:10PM

You can count me as a no too.

Through brainstorming my cousin and I came up with a list of names.
1. Bottom Light
2. Small Package
3. Tiny Tots
4. Porkin the beans
5. Veanna Sausage lost at sea
6. Lift and spread
7. Bush Be Gone
posted by Latricia Saucier on Nov 28, 2005 08:45PM

I think most of the ideas my cousin Jamie and I came up with were pretty cheesy, infact my favorite is Bottom Light, however Jamie wanted me to submit the ideas and I told her I would. Take care and Happy Holidays.
posted by Latricia Saucier on Nov 29, 2005 12:50PM

The suggestions posted earlier by me really do suck, so if you guys have not titled the CD yet, please do not use those. The best suggestion I liked, I believe was from Chris called "Caution in Operation", either way any name you guys name it will be cool.

PEACE.
