Band Name of the Year
- Chainsaw Daddy
Southern Rock? Nihilistic Punk? Dub? It works for just about any genre. "Chainsaw Daddy" is fine for a rough-and-tumble bar band, but contains levels of meaning suitable for the most pretentious art rock poseurs.
I nominate "Chainsaw Daddy" as the best band name of the year.
Band Names Q and A
Bones from The Internet asks:
"Is Rainer Buchty a supervillain by any chance? "
Bones, Rainer is an international super-villain, but he is also much more.
Rainer is also an Evil Genius and an electro-mechanical wonderkind. Rainer is not "Adam Sandler evil", but more the kind of evil that would give artificial intelligence to a 1980's hybrid analog digital synthesizer -- and then fill it with existential angst (see picture).
Rainer is famous for the so-called "Rainer Buchty Ratio" (search the internet), a byproduct of which, if accepted axiomatically, means that he created the coolest thing in the world. I am one of the miniscule group who has benefited from the Rainer Buchty Ratio, so I owe him.
Also my friends say I look like him. I'll see if I can put up the pictures one of these days, and Blog visitors can vote on it.
