Always hard to say without seeing the content, but Uncommon Concubine certainly is pleasing.

Now, Vandalism's Charm, that would get me going. :)

charm's vandalism

there's more to that than uncommon concubine. any desciptor with un- presents a simple binary. charm and vandalism set up more of a push/pull, a complex of tugging & shoving ideas. in what ways can vandalism (inherently destructive) also be charming? in what ways can charm be destructive?

I prefer The Charm Vandal, but I never order off the menu anyway.

CHARM'S VANDALISM

Though I was actually thinking what Charlie said, but now saying that I just sound like a wannabe...

And you just inspired me to post "Railroad Graffiti: Problematic Fun."

uncommon concubine certainly rolls through the mouth, and i now can't stop saying it.

but i'm with shanna it "says" less.

and i'm charles-ward and ross white-ward: the positioning of the words charm's vandalism almost but don't quite smack. it's a bit of a chumble—yet i want it to happen.

I love the word concubine and so, strangely enough, does the Giant Surfer Child who misuses it in conversation any time he can. For instance "Hey Luke, grab your concubine and get the hell over here" when he actually means surf board. Of course no one knows what he's talking about but he is my son, after all. I vote for her. That. It.

Sonically, "Uncommon Concubine" is clearly the winner. Meaningwise, I have no major preference.

Thank you all for chiming.

Helen -- glad I can be of some inspiration to somebody. :)

Jill -- Nobody hangs tighter than I.

I'd go for Uncommon Concubine myself. Who isn't looking for an uncommon concubine? I mean, who wants a common one? ;)

I'd feel like I had something special then, but maybe I'm getting a little off topic. :)
