Default Nickname for Lightfoot Fans

Hi,
While driving the other day. I had some ideas as to what Lightfoot fans could call themselves. After all I think the "Head" idea has been used enough.

Came up with a few possibilities.

Lightfoot loonies (In reference to "Ringneck Loon"
Sundowners
Rainy Dayers
Fitzers

The Gordonaires (my favorite)

Take a shot
Kevin

Lighthead is fine for me but Sundowners sounds OK too.

Lightheads seems to be what most of us call ourselves..back about 8 years ago a bunch of us called ourselves Lightfoot Loonies-partly for Ringneck Loon, the Canadian Loonie coin and then last cuz we're loony for Lightfoot!

I feel the same as Jesse Joe. My dad called me a Lighthead over 30 years ago. I do like the name Sundowners, but I will always be a Lighthead.

Here's a news story about fans of Lightfoot: "Lightheads" and those of the internet variety - "Net People" -

That was a great article Char ! I saw this before. And you did just awesome, (saying all the right things) in that Toronto Sun article dated 2005 ... Another great reason for keeping the name "LIGHTHEADS."

glad that article is archived nicely, char

Lighthead label still makes me think of Deadheads/Parotheads, I'd go to the other extreme:

there's only one Gord (Lightfoot) but there's so many followers (Lightfeet), maybe that's us

but seriously, if i were ever making a zaney GL fan website I'd go with wildstrawberries.com

Great article Char, I enjoyed reading it. As for the name, Sundowners has too much of a connection with an aging disease for me! I just stick with a very loyal fan.

Great article Char! Thanks for charing. I kind of like the name Lightheads,too. It's different. The name Sundowners is a make of horse trailers,too, so I guess it's taken.

Light like air or like a lightbulb? I had a couple pieces of that air head candy today. A half a piece of green (apple)and a half a piece of blue (raspberry), and my tongue turned like really dark.

How 'bout two names? One for the women...that would be "All the Lovely Ladies" and one for the men, that would be "The Boss Men"
Seriously, hows does this sound....

I used to think it was me that invented the term 'corfidian', but I know for a fact that the term corfiddler is original.

Then again, it's possible to be a Lightfoot fan but not a corfid poster. As far as I know, Lighthead works for me.

Here's another: Gord's "Shadows"... "Lightfeet" as JJ suggested is cute, but I think I like "Lightheads" best!

I like Jesse Joe's "Early Morning Rainheads" ROFL

Sundowners is a good one to. But then I though of the "Sundowner" -an abandoned motel in Nevada located in the outskirts of the 'living' ghosttown, Tonopah. At the time I had seen it, I thought with the amazing view and all, how charming a place it would be if it were to be renovated and turned into a "rest home".

Now I'm thinking it would be an ideal retirement community for us Lightheads in our later years!

Oh GADZ I just noticed Patti's additions here too...how FUNNY!

Don't think I've actually ever drank Blackberry Wine but me and "Miss Piggy" used to drink Blackberry brandy. I can still picture her behind the wheel of her folks Suburban..that bottle in one hand and a cigarette in the other.

I tend to think, if it ain't broke...don't fix it. "Lightheads" will always be my favorite. That being said, I can't resist but to offer up my own silly nickname. How about the "Canadian Railroad Trilobites"???? Pretty catchy, eh? (Oops....I'm not Canadian. Don't think I have proper authorization to use "eh"....sorry!)

Ha- ha-ha these are pretty good.
You guys are funny.
Zoneranger where'd you get your alphabet for "Dreamers"? Doing calligraphy I always look for close to arial with alterations and that is nice. I like the Dreamers concept.
Kind of the way we get Gords music... dreamy. Good stuff, you guys.
Blackberry winos was too harsh!!! And yeah, I recall that blackberry brandy, that used to be some good stuff, now, I am allergic to it. Darn.
And sundowners is a medical term, too, isn't it Auburn Annie? I thoughy it was...
You guys are funny.
