Where did you get the name 'Pulp Sushi' from?
I have been asked this question a few times. It throws people off because when they think of "pulp" they might think of paper. Or I'm selling sushi. Maybe a fan of the band Pulp?? What the hell does it mean??
Here's the story, and I may have shared this a long, long time ago but it needs revisiting. There once was a time, quite a few years ago, where I wanted to be a Blogger who wrote snarky and funny social commentary posts on what was going on with current events, entertainment, politics, etc. I was going to get thousands of hits a day and it was going to be my job and eventually I would have been one of the folks you saw on VH1 "I Love The _____" shows. I wanted to come up with a crazy name that was memorable and had a funky ring to it. Maybe in flipping the channels, Pulp Fiction was on, but somehow the name Pulp Fiction popped into my head. Of course I could not use that name but I like the ring it had, the three syllables, easy to say. Pulp What? Pulp......hmmm....
Sushi!!! Why sushi? Don't know. I had just gotten into eating sushi and really liked it. Sushi is the type of food that you either love it or hate it. Either way, it invokes strong opinions. Pulp Sushi, I like it!
Needless to say, the blog thing didn't take off. I just didn't care enough about all the crap that was out there. Around the same time I started getting into making things, marble magnets, soaps, candles. The soaps and candles were pretty bad. That didn't last very long. Back in 2005 I had submitted a photo to be printed in a photography zine which could only be purchased in one place, you guessed it, Etsy! I started browsing and was very inspired. Maybe I can sell my magnets here? I also started off with customized notepads too. The marbles soon became jewelry and the rest is history.
See? It is a pretty long-winded story to explain how I came up with this name. It still doesn't exactly mean anything but does it have to? Just as long as you never forget it. :)
