: I own Jesda.com. Now what?

I bought it in 2000 and turned it into a page full of 9/11-related images, parodies, and flash games. It was cathartic and got a TON of traffic.
I let it expire and lost it, so I put it on back order 7 years ago (one company refused to sell it to me, another offered it for $500). I guess the squatters decided it wasn't worth renewing anymore so its finally mine, and I haven't a clue what to do with it.

Gallery of attractive Swedish women.

Now that's a great idea, Sting! If the galery pictures are beautiful enough you could include some of you favorite Swedish music (no Grieg, please!). And maybe some of your favorite Swedish recipes. By the way Finnish girls can be very attractive also. You could make it Jeada's Scandinanvia and cook up some herring and raindeer!

Mine are mostly for my own use, except the one page I put online for the ship way back in 94.

Jesda, whatever happened to the blog/car review website you had?
Is it still around ... there were a couple of nice writeups on it.

You could always make the asian version of the Bangbus in which you cruise the local "Chinatown" district in a Toyota Previa.

Jesda, what service did you use to put the domain on order back then? i've been thinking about doing similar with my name dot com (i have the dot us) but haven't been able to really decide what's the best service to go with for this

GoDaddy.com, $80 for permanent backorder with alerts. Anytime it changed hands or the DNS or contact info changed, they emailed me. Then finally I got the big email, "We are attempting to acquire your domain"

1. wet blanket 531 up, 23 down

A negative person who tends to ruin other people's good times.
Don't let Joseph come on the Vegas trip, he's only going to be a wet blanket and take the fun out of everything.



2. wet blanket 258 up, 87 down

Someone who is over-emotional. One who dwells on their negativity.
"Ah man that stupid emo guy always whines about stuff, what a wet blanket!"




3. wet blanket 36 up, 20 down

Someone or something that could have utility but chooses not to.

This is from the idea that a blanket could be a wanted item, but is no longer wanted when wet.
Mike is a really fun guy but ever since he started dating Sarah he became a wet blanket.

1. If making pornography jokes is considered a good time on CF, then I apologize. Please continue with your "good times".

2. I'm not Gary. Wrong guy. See "Dual Test Drive Review" thread, or any other thread Rick is a part of that Gary might gravitate toward.

3. It's just the internet.

Can we all just take up a collection and buy Drew a bottle of Pamprin or something similar?

I didn't know Sal sold the site to Drew. You'd think with his attitude he's the one running the site now.

With all the travel shows, for those who think they are grownups, on public television, a show that featured "tavellin' light and greasy" would be a real plus. Who knows maybe there's a place for Jesda on the Travel Channel ...... sure would beat the monotony of "Man Beats Fried Egg Record" or "Looks like shit, tastes like shit but I'll eat it anyway just to gross you out" programming! Or maybe the "Speed" channel would consider expanding their programming to include "An Infamous Trip to Omaha, Ribs Included!"

Jesda, make a video touring the country in the Saab and see how many hookers will fit in the trunk with the top down. At least 1 per state.

A reality site forcing Abba and Ace of Bass to live in the same house. Kind of Big Brother style. With nothing but their music pipped in.

What about road trip stories, pics, and experiences....? You road trip threads are always among most popular threads in CF. So a website to put all of them together would be fun! Else I would vote for previous candidate, man porn! :histeric:

I think Jesda's name is unique enough to warrant an eventual brand.

Get doing. Write a blog. Keep making your car review videos (which I enjoy) and start making Jesda.com as close to a household name as you can. Keep it active, hustle for hits, and get some advertisers interested.

A dude with your personality should be going for this.
