This is just pure speculation on my part, but I think the reason this was asked was because having some title to put with it might make it sound more "official", well-organized, and important to those in and around the show who might hear about it. In that sense, a good name could be helpful in attracting other guests or cooperation from HBO on matters like viewing licenses, so I do want us to come up with a strong name for the gathering.
Obviously when I named the forum, I was making a play on "chaise" lounge and the name of the Sopranos creator, particularly because the shrink's couch in Melfi's office is much like a chaise lounge. That fit well with one noun meaning of "lounge" as a place to relax or recline.
In another common meaning, obviously, a "lounge" is a place to drink (alcohol). So . . . first thoughts in trying to integrate an event name with the forum name (colored text are alternative words):
- A Final Toast in/from The Chase Lounge
- The Chase Lounge: Last/Final Call
- One Last Round in The Chase Lounge
Feel free to extend the metaphor however you wish. I wanted to try this direction first just so we could keep the name of the forum relevant to/incoporated in the event title. If no one really likes what comes from this direction, we can always change course to something totally different.
In the other thread, Detective Hunt offered the following:
As for a name, I fear my marketing skills are never at their best. Something to do with being "made" perhaps? Or "the inner thought" behind The Sopranos? The later is really more in our line of thought as we have given over so much time to trying to determine what makes it so. Perhaps, "Melfi's Circle"...or better yet, The Chase Lounge in Melfi's Office...something like that. I'll keep giving it some thought.
Please weigh in with your own ideas or with just a thumbs up or down on anything already proposed. When it seems we are getting close to some strong candidates, I'll add them as poll choices.
