PRISM??






Right, I'm doing the channel x-brief for Istd. Essentially I have to name and brand a television channel. I just can not pin down a name that I like. .

top three options

PRISM

BEAM

POLY

The name would have to be versatile, and work with different genres and types of programme from "escapist to gritty to humanitarian to sensationalist".

I think all three of these words work in some ways as they can be associated with variety, Prism and Beam can also be associated with light. (which is a lot of what television is really.)

I think Poly sounds the best, but is it too generic, it is used a lot if you think about it, and is mainly associated with chemicals?

Prism is my top choice because it can work with the colour spectrum, show it being broken up into different sections (which could reflect the various genres) and conjures up images of geometric shapes which i could create type from. But I don't think it sounds very nice to say. I think it sounds too much like prison.

what do you think does it need to be meaningfull .. or is it a case of "whats in a name", i guess i could still do the whole splitting of colours etc with a different meaningless name???

top meaningless name ideas were GINO, yyy or iii.

anyway any thoughts would be helpful. I think i will go with PRISM if noone suggests nowt :) thanks folk.

Vauxhall and I


I 'm not usually one to listen to albums right through. (Usually shuffle through the world of music track to track, probably from watching skating videos as they do the same.) But Vauxhall and I is a beast and I recommend listening to every tune on it all as a oner as they are all brilliant. Thats all really.

The Moon




I just watched the documentary "In the Shadow of the Moon" available HERE . It reminded me that this year was the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. After watching some of the scenes and hearing the astronauts insights it really does affect you. Not only the physical act of the people involved, but it can't help but make you think about our existence in the universe, whether it is significant or insignificant or a bit of both and how as humans we really have a lot to live up to. Pretty deep pondering I guess for a blog and for it not even being lunchtime yet, but you should definitely watch it. You will enjoy it even if you don't end up spieling rubbish on your own significant, insignificant blog.
