The Google Name Game

For years Steve Deur has tormented me with photos from Google. So I thought I'd play a variation on the game, inspired by his latest post. First up though the Deurty Google Photo game - simply Google your friends and find genuine photos of them:

Frank Ritchie

Jacob Powell

Rhett Snell

Fun times late on a Friday night after the Blues were robbed a myopic assistant referee...

But the new variation on Googling your name is to find the most famous other you on the web! Here's the most famous Brett Joneses I could find:

Brett Jones the Country/Alternative Musician
Brett Jones the AFL Player
Brett Jones the Movie Stunt Man

But my personal favourite is this Brett Jones!

Is there a better you out there?

Hey that really is me with my cousin!

I know! Rhett Snell altar egos are so hard to find!

Steve Goble said...

A few years ago I Googled my name and found about 270 matches, nearly all of which were for another Steve Goble who was a massive fan of Star Trek.

Just two of the results were actually for me. And the punchline? They were both regarding items I'd written about Star Trek!

I sincerely hope the other Steve Goble also found them and sat there wondering "I don't remember writing this...?"

Does Google operate interdimensionally? Is there a chance that this is an interdimensional you?

Steve Goble said...

Yes, assuming that Google is run by the Vogons.

Actually, my personal favorite of Brett Jones is the photo in which Brett resembles a rabbit, in fact, a "rappin' rabbit"! :>)

BJ said...

Not so anonymous I think....

Steve Goble said...

Rabbi rabbit?

Who else but me would leave an anonymous comment about Hip Hop? Actually I'm so inept with computers|blogging that I couldn't figure out how to send my comment along with my name! "Anonymous" is much easier than "Sign(ing) up here"!!

I am all over the google image world! Either me or my pics! Or people that have seen or hosted my pics... :)

There used to be a gay clergyman called Rev. Glen O'Brien who used to pop up on google searches, but he seems to have dissappeared. Now the other me is a rather dull but try-hard Real Estate Agency. http://www.glenobrien.net/
