MusicBottle

  • What we're using (for) now.
  • Good:
    • Music for MusicBrainz
    • Bottle for Flask
    • Bot-tle (a bit far-fetched, and it's not really that automated either)
    • Can produce decent catch phrases and visuals (bottling music, unplugged, messages in bottles, bottled ships, ...)
  • Not so good:
    • "MB" can be both MusicBrainz and MusicBottle


MusicZombie

  • References "music" and is built up like FooBrainz.
  • Zombies eatz brainz, we feed on MusicBrainz data.
  • Zombie has a "z" like in *Brainz.
  • MZ is easily distinct from MB. :)
  • Can easily use the purple/orange theme and is easy to make a visual identity/mascot with/for.
    • Am I alone in wanting to de-emphasize the purple/orange theme? -- Caller_number_six (talk)
      • We do not absolute have to use purple/orange if we don't want to. :) --Freso (talk) 15:13, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
