So I’ve been thinking about putting together a web-based side project of some sort or another, and in a shout-out to my homies back in the Skatch, I decided to check out A little investigation revealed was taken by a Chicago band that apparently played a couple of gigs a few years ago and evaporated. If there ever was a web site at, is ain’t there now. So I emailed, thinking maybe they would sell.

They want sixty thousand dollars.

Now, maybe I’m naive, but I can’t think of any scenario where is worth sixty large to anyone. I can’t even imagine, in this age of search engines, it being worth $6000. I mean, it’s really not a great name unless you’re from Saskatchewan, and even then “great” is, let’s be honest, quite a stretch.

I’m not faulting them for wanting to keep the name. That’s cool. I wasn’t really expecting them to sell. Maybe they’re going to make a comeback or they’re working on an album or something and not having a web site is part of the plan. But I can’t help but wonder, is there still this kind of market for domain names? Are they really saying that if I only had $40,000 to offer, they wouldn’t sell? I dunno, but I snapped up You can have it for the discount price of $30,000.
