It’s a weird week, this last week of December; fewer than 500 new registrations today! But if you think that means this curated list will be shorter than usual, HAHAHA! Because there are 950 cancelled marks this week! I believe this is the first time in the history of this project that I’ve seen more cancellations than new registrations, and here it’s nearly double. It’s a Festivus miracle! Commentaries are limited, because today’s lists (especially the cancelled marks) are HUUUUUUGE.
PART 1: NEW REGISTRATIONS
AGE IS IRRELEVANT – Unless you want to buy or do tons of age-limited things.
BRAINS BEYOND IMAGE
EARN YOUR SUNRISE
FAITH>FEAR JEREMIAH 29:11 – I just read Jeremiah 29:11 from several bible versions, and I’m not seeing “faith” or “fear” in any of them.
HELLA BLACK HELLA PROUD
MOMMYING WHILE BLACK – Suddenly, moms are taking the lead for this week’s theme…
NEVER RIDE STOCK – Does it relate to rodeo? NASCAR? Skateboarding? [Checks specimens] Ah, remote-controlled car racing.
NURSES ARE DOPE – Apparently the same owner as this other NURSES ARE DOPE registration, though the owner info in TSDR is different.
PASSION WITH PURPOSE – Get ready for several from the same owner, all about passion:
PASSIONATE BASEBALL – Wait, so the … baseball itself is passionate?
PASSIONATE SOCCER – Not sure if “passion” counts as this week’s theme, since they’re all from the same owner.
PERFECT AS I AM
RIĆH & FAMÉ
RIP ME OPEN
SALT WATER AND MUD – Is this a list of two things, or three? The specimen doesn’t help, it’s a guy in a Cornholio shirt.
SIMPLY POSSIBLE – I see a lot of “inspirational” stuff in these lists, but this one strikes me as especially bland.
SLOTH GANG – Sign me up!
VACATION – After many suspension letters in 2016-2018, this one suddenly moved to oppo this September. I feel like we’re missing some documents.
PART 2: CANCELLED MARKS
(Standard disclaimer: Always double-check these words and phrases before using them in your designs, to make sure there isn’t a separate registration that is still live and active. Some marks have multiple registrations!)
…PAIN IS WORTH IT.
ACT WITH LOVE
AGE IS A NUMBER. OLD IS AN ATTITUDE.
BAD ASS HOCKEY – Is it bad-ass hockey? Or bad ass-hockey? [Hits puck with buttock]
BE YOUR OWN SPOT
BIG COCKE – Oh, it’s a rooster you say? Aaaah, right. Sure.
BORN A LION
BOUND BY THE CROWN – [wipes brow] How are we only through the letter B?

DAMN YOU AUTOCORRECT
DARKEST BEFORE THE DAWN
DO MORE THAN EXIST
EQUALITY BEYOND GENDER

HAPPY FOR NO GOOD REASON
HIGHBORN – Sounds like a caste in a YA fantasy novel.
HIGHER PURPOSE. GREATER GOOD.
I CAN’T KEEP CALM I’M GETTING MARRIED
I’M THE DADDY
IF YOU SMELL SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING – But won’t they then think you “dealt it”?
IN LIKE FLYNN – The only goods were “body shirts,” but the specimen was a stack of t-shirts.
IT’S A WONDERFUL THING
JUST BEE GENEROUS
KEEP CALM AND PLAY GOLF
LEAD. LOVE. SAVE. SERVE.
LIFE IS SWELL
LIVING THE 60’S FOR THE SECOND TIME – Nobody ever punctuates ’60s right.
LONG LIVE COWBOYS

PASSING THROUGH LIFE
QUEEN OF CONTROL
