Sending Out The Matt Signal

I have nothing today other than a request for your suggestions.

As I told you a couple of weeks ago, I am going to start up another website that will be my home page for luring people to hire me for comedy gigs.

I have been creating a database of radio, TV, newspaper, and comedy clubs which to alert as to my skillz and my site, but now I need help with something.

I need to start creating the site itself.

As you know this is my banner on Bagwine Ruminations…


It has the title and a tag line below the picture. It’s cute. It has me on the banner, which of course, makes it cute.

At this point, for my new site, I have decided on using the following picture in my new website banner.

I know, I use it often, but I dig it and it has attitude. Here’s where you come in.

I am asking for suggestions from you as to what the title above the picture should be, and what if any, should the tag line below the picture be.

(Keep in mind, the title should reflect that I am looking for comedy, speaking, and/or pundit jobs.)

If I use your suggestion, you will be duly and generously compensated once I begin to make money off of any gigs that I get from the new site.

And trust me, I’m generous to a fault, just ask my ex...if she was in a good mood she would even admit it.

That’s all I have today. Please let me know if you have any ideas either through the comments or in an e-mail.

I have a few ideas, but it is always better to look for thoughts from people who are detached from the question at hand.

So please…help me out you smart, sarcastic, lovable bastards, you.

Cheers!!

I'll put a concerted effort into coming up with something for ya. Right now I'm busy dreaming up creative ways of spending all the future dough.

Matt-Man said...

Jeff: Ha.. Have at it. And you my funny man, may have the answer. Cheers Jeff!!

First, how is WIR drank?

You can Call me AL said...

First thought.
Drink, nap, smoke.....nuttin but time!

Others,
Waiting to inhale. Yeah, I'll drink to that!

All I got right now.....

Scott Oglesby said...

I’ll put some serious thought into this and email you later. I already do have some thoughts; I just need to organize them….

I can tell you this already though; I think your background/layout should definitely be black. Maybe not all black, but predominantly so.

Matt-Man said...

Lady: Twist off the cap. Drink straight from the bottle or out of an old jelly jar. It's that easy. It's that spectacular. Cheers D!!

Al: Ha. I like em'. You should chime in more often. Cheers Al!!

Scott: I will be waiting with baited breath. Or at least with Rose breath. Cheers and Thanks, Scott!!

"Flava ain't got nuthin' on Bagwine"

"This butt's for you"

"Tick Tock Bitches!"

"The future's so dim I gotta wear shades"

"I got WIR on the table, a clock in my hands. Butt in my mouth and I don't give a damn" (homage to Zac Brown's song 'Toes")

"Hey Donald Trump, You wish you were this!"

"First there was Flava of love, then there was Jersey Shore. Now introducing TLC's new reality Show. 'It's Bagwine Ohio Bitches!' "

Matt-Man said...

Micky: Subtle. I like that alot. Cheers Mick!!

Doc: Ha. Tick Tock Bitches made me laugh out loud. Cheers Doc!!

BLACK, WHITE & READ
insert picture
...and the grey of it all.

Matt-Man said...

Lu: Ooooo. I like that too. You guys are good. Thanks Lu. Cheers!!

David said...

It looks like you have some good stuff coming in and I have nothing to compete. I initially thought that the famous quote "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" would be appropriate - sadly I fear that wouldn't do much to market your venture.

Far be it from me to challenge your wit, humor and judgment but.... I like the pic choice - it has a C’est la vie flavor and represents your savoir faire - except for the clock. I fear the flava clock thing has seen its days. It’s sad to say so but someone has to step up and tell you and I’m just that much of a friend to tell the ugly truth.

Godspeed with marketing your comedy gigs Matt-Man.

Matt-Man said...

David: If I could capture the same pic w/o the clock I would. I had the clock because it was for a New Year's Eve post. It's set at 2minutes til midnight. But, as I always say...It is what it is. Cheers Daaaaaavid!!

Jay said...

Yea I suck at these things. I'll try to come up with something that's not embarrassingly stupid.

Matt-Man said...

Jay: You're a fucking genius.

I'll try to come up with something that's not embarrassingly stupid.

Would make a great title for someone trying to get speaking engegments. Cheers Jay!!

Matt-Man said...

or even speaking ENGAGEMENTS!!

Phfrankie Bondo said...

Title: All The Good Vices...


Tag: ...All Of The Time.

Matt-Man said...

Phfrankie: Ha. That's good too. You need to write and record a theme song for me, P-Man. Cheers!!

Dianne said...

I love the photo
actually I took it off your site a long time ago and keep it under my pillow

I think Lu's line is good, I love all the lines but they're not all aimed at selling you

if I have a stroke of brilliance I'll let ya know

Matt-Man said...

Dianne: Ha. I like lying under your pillow, but I'd rather be lying between your funbags.

Let me know if your creative (or any other kind) juices flow. Cheers Di!!

Bond said...

Hire me or the clock gets it

If you need any help creating the blog...let me know

Matt-Man said...

Bond: Will do. Thanks Vinny. Cheers!!

Matt-Man said...

Bond: Thank ya. I will take this under consideration. In the mean time, here, have some whiskey. Cheers Vin!!

Bond said...

translation...you ain't feeling my love...

okey dokey

Matt-Man said...

Bond: Ha. Not at all. WTF? Cheers!!

Bond said...

See now, WTF is the best Title I have seen here...


HEADLINE: WTF???

TAG: Comedy, Speaking Engagements and anything in between...

Candice said...

I'm brain dead today, but my thoughts on the clock are this. If you want it out of the picture, photoshop that shit right on out. I have no idea how to do it, but I'm sure someone does.

Damn, I'm helpful as hell aren't I?

Matt-Man said...

Bond: I like WTF but it's been over used. Plenty of options thanks to you guys. Cheers!!

Candice: I'm sorry you couldn't think of anything, but as I have been staring at your picture for twenty minutes, you've already contibuted. Cheers Candice!!

boo said...

Hack of all Trades.

Time for some witty observations, bitches!

*shrug*

I'm still trying to think of something witty. I had some truly spectacular ideas last night when I first read your post, but that's about the time that I realized I somehow hadn't managed to clear this bitch of all it's little virii tendrils and got pissy. I think I've got the fucker under control now, but sadly, I've seem to have lost all my witty little blurbages along with the virii. Damnit.

When you do figure it all out, I'll volunteer to actually create your banner. I've done a few and think I'm pretty good at it. I think you've seen mine, both at Sardonic Musings and Slapdash Haberdashery. I did Clay's as well. Just putting it out there.

I'm sure you'll come up with something fan-fucking-funny Matty. ^_^

Liquor is quicker but I'm funnier bitches!

I'm not really good at coming up with witty things on the fly: my best ideas come at that point when I am just about dropped into a deep slumber, so when that point comes when I get dumped right out of Morpheus's arms and jerk awake if I have any ideas, I'll write them down.

I like 'Putting the F-U into FUN' maybe Putting the COME into COMEDY ? Sorry I had something really great but I got distracted by a shiny object..

~Isobel~DingoDoll said...

I dig 'Tick-Tock, Bitches'!!!
