What's in a Username?

Recommended Posts

Basically, the stories behind the name. And why are they important? Or are they even important to you?

DeadLinesman was the pseudonym for my mate who is now official photographer for Brighton. I used to attend a lot of their away games in the late 90's and was at the time affectionally known as Shearer. My brother in law was the very original 'Northern Monkey' whilst other gems include BinMan Walton. 

I liked his name more so stole it when I signed up here. Thing is, I've grown very attached to it and can't bring myself to change it. A little sad maybe but it's been the same for so long now that I don't know any different.

It's from a football anime I used to watch as a kid. I chose it when I started playing online games, and then on forums as well, and I just kept it.

Romesh is more Bong (Bengali) than Gujarti. Ramesh would have been apt.

The Honey Monster did an ad in the 90s where he played for Keegan's Newcastle and got on the end of a cross to head it home and win the FA Cup. 

The advert is as good as it sounds...

I usually go with the name Libertadores FC on most forums now, but I wanted something different. Went with an old Adult Swim ad which included the Aqua Teen Hunger Force cast (Master Shake, Meatwad and Frylock) singing and dancing around to a samba. After researching, the name was La Samba De St Germain. Very catchy tune. I always dance to it even if I try not to.

 

 

And the ad

The same for me, except not a football anime. Spike is the name of the character from Cowboy Bebop. Also, for online games my username is a misreading of a Final Fantasy character's name.

The Cure are a rock band whose music I'm rather keen on, in particular their third, fourth and fifth albums from the early eighties. Their gloomy sound and unique playing style during this period was very influential to certain music scenes and although they don't have the same feel anymore I fully appreciate their initial ambience. Their name suited the feel I'm going for and doesn't come across as obnoxious, too pomp or anything people could scoff at.

It also means to make something healthy again. Can't question that.

Anyone that doesn't know who the Cure are should check their head.

It's another name for Richard, when I was in school kids thought it would be funny to call me by that in a crude manner because ya know we were like 15-16, in college whenever people called me it I kinda just accepted it and thought if I put an 'ie" at the end it seemed a lot less harmless. It turned into one of those things where it you take the weapon away from the bully it's not fun for them anymore.

What honorable action did they commit to deserve your respect? Did they buy Higuain merchendise?

Spot on. What's yours about?, is it because of how well you bend over?

I could bend you over, but wet-chinned, neck-bearded Nazi remnants are not my type.

No, it's because of Sven 'Manni' Bender our (nearly) indestructable DM.

It's just a funny name really. Though for those who don't know, Smiley Culture was a reggae musician in the 70's-80's.

Asura means wrong minded demigods as per Hindu religion.

But the reason I use Asura as my screen name is, its a pseudo name for a music producer Charles Farewell, he produces mostly psybient genre.
