Webster’s Dictonary for

Phantom – APPARITION b : something elusive or visionary



Joshua A. Hall

Here is a suggestion for Matt Miller’s Q1.

Phantom – Sounds cool, musical in nature, dark as in color, cartoon to go with James and Kevin’s caricatures.



Mark Polino

No suggestions yet? It’s been, what 12 hours?

Ok Matt, here goes, names for your Q1:

Krutch – try to live with out it and you’ll understand.
MiniMe – small, shiny dome.
Vader – Black, shiny and your wife will hate it.
Bible – Sooner or later everything important will be in there.
Precious or Gollum – Like the ring.

That’s all I’ve got for now. As JK and Kevin know, mine is named Binky, as in pacifier. My wife and kids ganged up on me and selected the name. Good luck!
