New information management (IM) consultancy firm name from Wordlab: Plato’s Gnat

June 5, 2010 at 8:53 am in Shoutout, Wordlab Names

Way to go Wordlabbers for convincing user jgnat to go with Plato’s Gnat for his new information management (IM) consultancy firm name: “As a follow-up, I took your advice. You are looking at the fresh Director of Plato’s Gnat Ltd. (www.platosgnat.com). You are right that the name generates curiosity and conversations. The reactions have been positive as I’ve explained the meaning behind the name.

The Incredible String Band — Little Cloud

May 21, 2010 at 9:29 am in Music, Poetry

Just because it’s Friday and I’m in this kind of mood, let’s listen to Little Cloud, by the The Incredible String Band. Sing along, everybody:

Little Cloud

How sweet to be a cloud, floating in the blue.

Lying awake, late the other night
Heard above me a trembling,
I looked up, it was a little cloud,
From which a gold string was dangling;
You know, I gave the string a little pull,
Just to see what was on the other end.
Just then a voice came down to me, says,
“Hey, now, don’t you want to be my friend,

And float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair;
Float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair;

You see I’m just a happy little cloud,
I laugh and float and sing my song,
But the other clouds don’t like me none.
They say I am behaving very wrong.
You see a cloud’s supposed to be sad,
To cry and weep and tear its hair and all,
And don’t matter how hard I try,
I can’t get the first little tear to fall.”

And float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair;
Float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair;

I said, “Hey, I like you little cloud,
You are a nice little fellow, yes.”
“You making some, kind of a joke?”, said the cloud,
“Now can’t you see I’m wearing such a pretty dress?
You see I am the prettiest little chick cloud
That you’d find anywhere up above.
I just dropped in on you awhile
To see if you could give me some kind of love.”

And float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair;
Float with me to distant lands wondrous and fair;

Just then the chief cloud come into view
And says, “Hey, girl, now what you
think you’re doing there?
I told you so many times before
You just don’t seem at all to care.
You know you should be floating up above, now
Don’t let me catch you down here again.”

And as my cloud pulled out of view,
There come failing down a gentle shower of rain.
Happy rain come failing down,
Red, green, blue and golden.
And every drop, as it fell, it smiled
And, throwing back its head, began singing,

“Oh float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair;
Float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair.”
