random DDR/branding geekiness

so when tyler and i did our first sight-read tournament, it was called D2SSR. That stood for the "Dyaus/Darknote Super-Sight-Read" tournament.

When we did the sequel tournament, i named it "DSR Squared", which stood for "Dyaus/Darknote Super-Sight Read Returns".

Suppose we were to put on a third tournament. I like the re-branding of the first to the second tournament, so i'd want to hold on to that and call it DSR Cubed, or DSR^3. But if i did that, would it continue to be an acronym? If it were an acronym, what would it be? The "Dyaus/Darknote Dancing Super-Sexy Sight-Read Really Returns"? The "Dyaus/Darknote Duo Super-Samurai Sight-Read Returns Rowr!"?

Probably it would be better to reconceive of the DSR as no longer being an acronym of anything and let it stand as an established association with our sight-read tournaments. Maybe have it stand for something as a small font joke, and then if we ever decided to do a ^4 or a ^5, the joke would further itself to absolutely ridiculous, which kind of fits the sort of tournament thing that we try to do.

not that we're necessarily in the market to do a DSR^3, i'm just thinking about Brands in general right now, and this popped into my head.

Really, the acronym can be in any order, because that's how multiplication works.

Also, you should totally do a DSR^3.

I would be very happy if there was a DSR^3, i would come for sure.

If DSR^3 were to happen, everyone's DDR skills would be so deteriorated by then that I imagine most people wouldn't be interested in your normal arrow squashing competition. Which... makes things difficult. :x
