Your Username...why'd you choose it?

Recommended Posts

It's my old radio DJ name. I had a show called The Free Lunch where I played bootlegs, only unreleased stuff. It was on Berkeley Liberation Radio, a Berkeley pirate radio station.

That's good to finally know :)

My first name's Ross and I was born in 1962.

Easy one! My family is 2 half’s, mum's side and papa's side. My grandmother never liked the French side, so I came up with something she would have preferred instead of my father’s, at her home the Red Ensign always flew proudly and I was made to know my English side history otherwise there was no love from her. Plus I made it more pretentious sounding by adding the middle initial a-la Steven A Jones model. It’s always been an inside joke among my small circle of friends, we always use our middle initial as a bit of laugh. As mum liked to say "Whitehaven vs Normandy" - in Canada the French and English history runs deep, very deep!

My username? Well, to be precise, I AM my username.
My name is Janneke, and I am a Queenie (fan of Queen) and a LedHead (fan of Led Zeppelin). So there ya go :)

I have only no idea why I used these stripes - _ but whatever. I ain't gonna change it. lol

Charles, as I posted to this thread back in March 2008:

Mine is not a username, it's a sigil which incorporates a base numeric of ten and the All Seeing Eye. There's more but it shall not be revealed here.

So is it an A or an All Seeing Eye? Both? Is it a username or is it alchemy bound together by ones and zeros? B)

Because Chinese names are super funny, and, it has more personality than just Bob or Jeff. Maybe I should change it to StuntManMohammedBOOM... thoughts?

:hysterical: 

How about, I'mhereagainjusttobeatroll - at least we could respect the honesty, instead of all these other not so random names/themes.

Btw, my choice was on the fly the night of the concert.  I figured if Walter was good enough for Jimmy Page to choose to name one of his songs, it was good enough for me.

Dearest 'Bender,

Hello.  Nice to see you passing through as I.

Recall you as the thinking-man's conservative.

Cheers,

A.C.

Folks started trickling off here after the '07 Reunion.   Some started got banned.  I couldn't log in for the longest time.

I am not sure what happened to Hermit, Del and Scratch as well.  Haven't talk to them in many years.  I come across the others on occasion. 

Sadly, Grampa Levee passed away just over a year ago.  Funny I was wondering about you the other day and I came back you had posted.  Hope all is well.

... whoopsies ... The Mage has got to get back in character...

Do what thou wilt!

A.C.

Hey there... been a long time...
Life has been happening, as has the end of it as well. I do miss 'the old days' and some of the conversations/discussions/rants/diatribes... but especially some of the people here, and particularly you StringBender. :)  But... we can't go back it seems... when we try, it's like trying to put toothpaste back in the tube... it doesn't work and the attempt can be kinda messy.

I pop in briefly every few months and then pop back out. Meanwhile..... *waves hello*

I didn't choose it...IT chose me.

I love seeing the old-timers come back but I have learned not to get my hopes too high. They usually pop in briefly and vanish again.
