How Domainers are Doing Right By Caitlyn Jenner

Today, Caitlyn Jenner revealed herself to the world.  And, the world, loved it.  Her Twitter account got more than 1,000,000 followers in four hours.

Team Caitlyn failed to register CaitlynJenner.com or any of the other domain extensions.  But, some domainers, including me, did it for her.

Does Mike Damone’s “5 Point Plan” For Picking Up Women Still Work 30+ Years Later?

Mike Damone, the kind of sleazy, yet kind of cool, ticket scalper / ladies’ man helped make Fast Times at Ridgemont High one of the most iconic teen movies of all time.  And, it’s by far our favorite teen movie of the 80’s.   We’re going to go out on a limb here, and guess that you’ve never wondered or cared what happened to the domain names of the cast members.  Lucky for you Domain Roast does.

If you were a teenage boy in the 80’s and thought you had at least some game with the ladies, you might have tried Mike Damone’s famous “5 Point Plan”, the original How-To-Get-Any-Woman-You-Want” blueprint:

Does it still work today?  It works better than Sam Goody does at selling records and cds.

For the record, the author of this post, only subscribed to Point #1, did not follow points 2-4.  And,  I was not a fan of Led Zeppelin, as my preferred make out music was Rick James’s Fire and Desire (perfectly cued up on my car’s cassette player).

Anyway, Robert “Bob” Romanus, agreed to repeat Damone’s famous “5 Point Plan” for a fan who caught up with him in 2011.  Enjoy.

This made Domain Roast like Bob Romanus even more.  It also led us to wonder two things:  What Mr. Romanus was up to these days and if he owned his own URL.  Until recently, Mr. Romanus was the owner of  Bob’s Espresso Bar in North Hollywood.   When we checked on RobertRomanus.com and BobRomanus.com, we saw that both were registered, but about to drop.  Both became available in early October 2014.   A few days ago, we checked again and saw that RobertRomanus.com had been registered by someone in Japan.  So, to preserve BobRomanus.com and MikeDamone.com for Mr. Romanus, we registered both names.

Mr. Romanus, they are yours.  Just tell us how to transfer them to you and we will.  You must own MikeDamone.com, one of the great characters in teen movie history.

It would be extremely cool if you’d make a 10 second video on your phone saying “hello” to Domain Roast and your fans who read this blog.  But, that’s not necessary.  Although, it would be really awesome.  Like bucket list awesome.

Thanks for making 1982 a great year.

“Walk of Shame” To Launch New Website On SluttyAndProud.com

The “Walk of Shame” (“WOS”), in an attempt to update its image and leave the “shame” behind, will launch SluttyandProud.com later this year.   CEO Sammy Haus said, “We needed to do something to show the world that hooking up with someone who you don’t know that well, and then making the disheveled walk home in the morning as onlookers judge you, is something the judgers should feel shameful about, not those who got lucky.”

So, why change the name of your well-known brand?  According to Mr. Haus, the final straw was the cinematic bomb “Walk of Shame” that barely got a  12% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  “And, it wasn’t only the movie,” Mr.Haus stated. ” “People are just taking this way too seriously.”

From Schweddy Balls, DomainRoast.com was Born

Sometimes ideas, the good, the bad, and the stupid can’t help when they decide to be born.  The idea for Domain Roast burst into this overly-crowded world of dog bloggers, mommy bloggers, food bloggers, whoa-is-me bloggers, domain bloggers, etc. in September 2014 (although it’s actual birth was just a few days ago).  I was at my day job perusing a Godaddy auction for a work related domain name when I stumbled upon schweddyballs.com and saw that it was an expiring name auction.  It had been years since I’d seen this most hilarious SNL skit.  I went to YouTube and watched it in all of its magical glory, then shared it with a younger co-worker who’d never seen it.  She cried from laughing so hard.
