Thanks to Netflix, I have become a total movie addict. BF and I do movie night at least once a week (at the famous Theatre a la Maison, seating only available pour deux) and together we'll watch almost everything.
However, BF usually stays away from "chick flicks," so it took a little convincing for him to want to watch Whip It ("it's not a chick flick, honey, it's an action film with mostly girls in it, like Tank Girl, really"). If you haven't seen it yet, Whip It is an awesome film about Austin roller derby starring the likes of Ellen Page, Drew Barrymore and Kristen Wiig.
The fabulous Audrey reminded me about this movie on her blog and it got my mind wandering about some of the things I enjoyed best about it - including those awesome roller derby names, of course! Where else in life would a gal be able to swing around names like Babe Ruthless, Eve of Destruction, Iron Maven or Smashley Simpson?
Well I think all ladies should have kickass alterna-names at the ready for when they need to dig into something and really bring it. I found a couple of sites with name generators that can help you out here and here or see a rollcall of actual derby girl names here for inspiration.
I wasn't creative enough to think of my own name so got some help and ended up with Cuckoo Chanel (because I love fashion, and if you had seen me play lacrosse in college, cuckoo fits).
What would your ass-kickin' (roller derby) name be?
