I'e narrowed it down to the following:

jpalmerworks.com
johnpalmerworks.com
jpalmermusic.com
palmercreative.com
johnpalmercreative.com
palmermusicandmore.com
palmerwordsandmusic.com
johnpalmerwordsandmusic.com


Initially, the focus will be on music, but things to do with the written word might be added.

Short, simple and all encompassing is usually best. That's why my vote goes to jpalmerworks. It has a nice play on words to it too. I like it.

Oh, was galactictossbeast.com taken? <snicker, snicker, snicker>


Sorry. I voted for the shortest one. IMHO, you want the most simple, shortest domain, because you're going to be saying it to people verbally, and there's no way they'll remember three or four run-on things. Thus I went with chrismoore.com when christophermoore was available. (And sadly, galactictossbeast.com was, indeed, taken.)

Short and memorable is indeed best - but that's why I voted for palmercreative.com. It's only two words, no initials. Palmerworks is good, but palmercreative sounds more on-target.

I'm not happy about any of the selected. Should be more succinct.

Fewer words is the way to go. Add things like initials and people have a hard time remembering.

death.com? Wink

But seriously -- which shouldn't be difficult, judging by the look of your avatar -- any suggestions?

Good ideas, but they're both taken. Sad
