QUACKCAST 289 - Managing your personal brand

This time we're talking about the weird notion of managing your online brand: what name do you publish your creative works under and how do you go about curating that? It's an idea I had after a great artist friend of mine known as Hyena Hell lost her online presence on Facebook, the main venue for publishing her artistic projects. Both her her private and public creative lives had been merged into the persona that is known as “Hyena Hell” because the act of creation was very personal to her, it was her brand as well as herself. But after a nasty little scum sucking piece of excrement loser arsehole rectum faced coprophagiac reported her name she lost her right to have that as her personal account. Rather than challenge it or compromise she retired her creative persona from Facebook, and it was a shame because we lost a vibrant artistic, thoughtful presence from there.
But many of us also have an online brand/persona/nom-de-plume of some sort that our work is collected under and that's the topic of discussion!
Gunwallace's theme this week is for Urthe, featuring lashing cymbals and electric guitar that blasts out like a deadly raygun! This is hard rockin’ goodness!

Lyrics to Urthe:

Deep in the beginning of time
Long before the dinosaur

That long history was mine
I will show you through that door

your history books don't tell you
Is Just how great we were!

Creatures of legend too
And now it's all a blur

Deep in the beginning of time
At civilisation's birth

That long history is mine
The first people called it Urthe

Hey wasn't there someone who discovered somebody had appropriated their exact brand name on another site? There was a moment there where I was afraid of losing my name. Good riddance to so much bad rubbish I am certain.

You know there's this person I have had a grudge against since high school that is using a fake name on Facebook. But even a scum as low as me would never squeal on her. For shame.
