Anybody ever go to a search engine and look up your own name. You know, to see where you are mentioned on other pages or what other people with your name do, and if they are more successful than you. Am I alone in this?

You're not alone. I look up my name, friends, family, etc. Usually I just get boring stuff like 16 century historians and stuff though.

Unfortunately I get pages and pages of Bible stuff. Moses and "Gates of Heaven" go together a lot. Even if I put it in quotes, there's an album by Bob Dylan out where the last word of one track is "Moses" and the first word of the next is "Gates." So I get all the listings of that.

There is a kind of funny term that I forget for searching for your own name on the internet.

What cracks me up about doing that (I think of it maybe once a year) is that I'll stumble on some post or review I've written for a music or wrestling site (usually a concert review) I did years ago and totally forgot about. Reading it again brings it all back and makes for a fun trip back in time.

I try to do this every few months or so, if only to see if people are still talking about me. (Cue "You're So Vain" in the background) And it works, too! Of course, I have to get past all of my OWN pages, first... ;-)

When I search for my name on Yahoo!, I get nothing related to me, and I own my own domain name~! When I go to webpage matches, there is a page for a private detective named Joe Collins and baseball player named Joe Collins, and Joe Collins in the drink. But nothing about me. When I go to a GOOGLE Search, there's tons of old rsp-w posts, including some I made in 1997 where I claimed Eric Bischoff was destorying wrestling... doesn't seem so crazy NOW, does it?

Oh, but anyway, you are not alone in this and don't feel bad... what else are you going to do with your time?

I search for my name and my kids names. I will search every now and then for names of some of the people I hung out with in my drinking days - so I can avoid them. I know enough now to stay away from Grand Junction, Colorado.

I do sometimes, but everything I get turns out to either be about some soccer player from Europe, or about The Clash's Combat Rock album. Oh well, at least the second reference is kinda cool to be associated with.



There, I feel better now.

I do that sometimes, but not much comes up. My last name is pretty uncommon. More often, I will look up people I remember from high school to see if they have become successful or are in jail or stuff like that.

I too am a soccer player. I am also a huge 10,000 seat cathederal that you can rent out for your wedding/baptism, and a senior high school in Virginia.

I just searched for an old psycho ex-girlfriend of mine from my drinking days - May she rest in peace

Yep... The only pages I ever find are my own page, and CRZ's page.

Seems despite being online for nearly 7 years now I haven't left much of a trace.

I usually look up myself to see how far my influence in the world is...and women I'm interested in to make sure they haven't done porn.

I don't look myself up, mostly because I know there's nothing to find. I mean, all I'll find is pages like this, which are recent, and have no overall meaning right now. Now, five years from now...

When I looked up my name i found many sites about an author with the same name. There's a problem there, cause I hope to be an author someday. So I guess i'll have to use a fake name.

I'm thinking of maybe using Scotty Claxton or Speedy Anton.

When i enter my nickname "Quezzy" I either get some old efed i was in with that name or I get something about the football player i was nicknamed after, Jacquez Green.

Here's a fun / creepy / scary tool for you all:

Click Here <-http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/

It's an SSDI search... Check to see if anyone with your name has ever died. Strange.

Did anyone catch this last night? The first story was kind of hokey (the acting sucked) I thought, but the second one was the absolute SHIT! Any thoughts?
