Thanks to Mefi Project I snagged up forbiddenkeys.com as a domain name. What do I put on it? An ARG? 'Adult' content? Photos of keys? An adult ARG involving keys?

The answers don't have to specifically be about forbidden keys, though combinations of absurdist and yet appropriate to the URL are most welcome.

A publicity site for your next novel.

A database that lists who has blurbed books by a particular author, and what books a particular author has blurbed. Users could add their own submissions.

(Doesn't really have anything to do with keys or forbidden-ness, I just want a site like this to exist.)

Whatever your current art project is, find novel ways it connects to life, people's thoughts, or anything people want. Those connections can be keys. (It looks like that's what the original domain was used for, in a way.)

OR: A directory of self-help books.

Can't quite think what you could do with it, but you could interpret that as For Bidden Keys ... but what would the keys have been bidden to do?

Awkward photographs of people trying to put keys into locks that they obviously won’t fit (e.g. car key into diary pad lock; motorcycle key into Master combination lock; skate key into deadbolt).

Stuff Alicia Keys doesn’t want you to know.

Inappropriate basketball-zone paint designs.

To me it sounds like a great name for an arts and culture webzine. Poetry? Have themes… Take submissions from users… It could be really cool!
