A discussion concerning the name of the website took place a couple of days ago actually. It would be cool to find out if there was any reason for the name but could also just be one of those names that just come into your head tongue.gif

I like the name and how the word Buzz sounds totally different to Jack, like it contrasts well as one word or something.

Wasn't it to do with the (now defunct) music quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks?

I presume we replaced cocks with Jack was mainly for copyright and because there are a lot of people called Jack here - as well as the initials BJ being ideal covert cover for discussing the illusive OCC midweeks.

Do you guys remember when CHC and BJ had a feud going? I remember people on CHC calling it that all the time.

I was on ChCMEdia.

I expect it is probably some kind of a sex toy, in which case we should DEFINITELY go into merchandising.

From what I remember, Phil just liked the words Buzz and Jack, and thus BJ was created.

I have a vague recollection of that, if the one on Rabb.it is the one you mean? And I thought maybe it was to do with there being a BUZZ surrounding new singles etc. And Jack was just added to the end to make it sound kewl cool.gif

I think it's because Phil was a big fan of Toy Story but couldn't call the site BuzzLightyear.

I went to chc media first probably due to my music tastes and was a bit pissed off that they wouldn't vote in an Anastacia forum. Then Luciano (RIP) introduced me to Buzzjack and we got an Anastacia forum but now we need more Anastacia forum tbh.

I was on both CHC and BJ at the same time for a short while, but my heart was always with BJ and I ended up becoming embroiled in many an online drama which resulted in my removal from CHC (from what I recollect.)

Oh to be 17 again.
