Mr. Murder is technically an alt.

I used to name all of my fantasy sports teams after Dean Koontz books. Mr. Murder stuck there, and then eventually here as well.

Its a reference to a werewolf tribe from white wolf's old world of darkness line. They were the Egyptian death obsessed werewolves who loved to rip vampires to shreds, and disliked the politicking of the "more important" tribes.

Mine started off when I was headed out to the middle east and I needed a title for my blog - so it was "A Texan in Shaikh Muhhamad's Court"  or Middle East Texan.  A lot of folks think its "I'm a Texan" which lead to lots of knee jerk reactions in the GWB days.  It was kind of trollerific fun, considering I voted for Obama.

it's what my real life friends call me. And yes... alcohol was involved for many steps of the evolution of the name.

Started out between periods in the "smoking section" at a Devils playoff game in 2001 and a random dude said about me "Hey...It's that crazy half naked man"... and over the course of that series and the rest of the playoffs, everytime he saw me he changed it a bit until it became "hng".

HE ended up naming his hockey team after me... and had me design a jersey that inlcuded my likeness, and then when he got married, the invite and my table assignment was "hng".

When I was 12 I was playing legos with my cousin, who built this weird ship and start calling it "Space Jockey 1999".  When I got to college and had to find a user id of my very own, I wanted to hearken back to that moment and call myself spacejockey, but there were multiple space jockeys out there, and I wanted my own name.  So I combined it with my major (Aerospace Engineering) and voila, aerojockey.  Pretty sure I'm the only one.

Well, when my dad set us up an AOL account back in... oh, 1996ish? he asked me to think up a username. I was just starting to be in love with Terry Pratchett books at the time, so I combined  Rincewind with my favorite number 53, which had been given to me by my 5th grade teacher.

Thus,  Rincewind53was born.

/because Rincewind is such a common username, there are actually other Rincewind53s out there.

The hostess asked me for my login name. I panicked. Years of hard work making spreadsheets and gathering data would be for naught. Then I looked across the room. There was a person wearing a shirt from The Salty Dog Saloon. So I blurted out, "Salty Dog." Well in her drunken script the "a" looked like an "o." I went home that night and created the account using the spelling on the tag, since it was in so many pictures and I didn't want to raise suspicion.

Around all those Generation Blah books and articles, decided that I'd appoint myself voice of my own generation.  Narcissism without portfolio.  I wanted a nick that I had not seen anywhere or used anywhere, and there it was.

Worldcom helpfully came up with the same idea mere weeks later to advertise their network, which at the time I was working for a subsidiary of.  Which was kind of weird too.  Should have grabbed that logo, GIS seems to have completely forgotten it.

I always thought it was atl farkette.

Mostly because I think when I first joined TF and started joining TFD threads, you said something like "i was nycfarkette, now I'm atlfarkette" and I have massive amounts of hip hop cred, so I knew atl = HOTLANTA.

I was called 'Spidey' all through middle and high school because a (really huge) spider crawled onto me and I had a full, serious, completely humiliating panic attack in front of everyone at a fifth-grade school assembly.

Then, in college, I joined the campus radio station and our programming director was also a big Steely Dan enthusiast. Just enough kids from my old hometown (four,) had come to the same school, and one of them called me Spidey a couple of times in our director's hearing. He assumed (not illogically,) that it was short for 'SpiderQueenDemon' and started marking my schedules 'SQD' or 'Spidey' (everyone went by nicknames there,) and I just sort of went with it because it sounded cooler than I had ever been.

It did even make a vague sort of sense, if you interpreted the song 'Two Against Nature' to be about a pair of dorm RAs dealing with wacky hijinks at something of a party school, though I never did throw a wicker wing chair across the lobby. And I stopped minding being called 'Spidey' provided it was assumed to be short for something cooler, which is good because I don't expect to ever live that one down. The one teacher mistook the panic attack for a seizure and jabbed my butt with an EpiPen and...yeah, definitely in my top five worst memories.

So basically picking that user name was me trying to be the coolest possible version of myself and make peace with the awkward little kid I had been. And it sort of works.

Mr. Murder: Tick Tock - Okay, this one would have been awesome.


Appropriate, since that was an awesome book.

Mine is German for "devil monkey"...which I decided was a good name to use online back in the late '90s. Don't ask me why I thought that, 'cause I sure as hell don't remember.

I was on a date with a girl and we ordered sushi at a restaurant that no longer exists.  It was the worst sushi I've ever encountered and one of us said something along the lines of "well, it's sorta sushi".

A few days later I needed a user name at salon.com's tabletlalk and in a gin-fueled haze, came up with sortasushi.

that was 1998.  after a few years, people started calling me soosh.  so I went to that.

My nickname from back in the green days was The Prybar, I was good at, well lets say finding out stuff and getting into locked storerooms among other places, also I was the only one that could use a Remington 870 to open a locked door during urban combat training without blowing my fingers off, when I had a friend make me a stencil as a joke he misspelled it, I liked it so I kept the misspelling and the rest is (non) history

Many years ago, like almost 40, I really had decided that this place just wasnt right.Nothing made sense.
I was trapped inside so obiously the wrong body, and it seemed that i was also on the wrong planet, as there was no way that these kinds of beings who seem to pass for intelligent upright apes, could in any way be part of my genetic makeup. What with the killings and rapes and overall dickishness that seems to pervade most of the planet.Not to mention the crapping on ones own plate by polluting the only place to live in this general area of space, and making money while doing so.
I still hope that the daydream I had about not really being here when i was five is true, because for the life of me I have no idea why I got sent to hell.
In a nutshell, I have always been alienated.
Was there alcohol ? There might have been when I created an alt name, as I was thinking of an SNL character after Phil Hartman died, but I lost the password and Drew retired it.

My high school carries Goslings as their nickname.

That, in turn, comes from my hometown's legacy of fattening up geese for foie gras. Families all over town would get up at all hours to stuff their big grain noodles down the goose's throat. And let me tell you, that goose would have to be noodled every couple hours. The dad, the mom, the kids, they'd all have to take turns whipping out their noodles and handle that insatiable goose again, and again, and again, day after day, until they've noodled so much the goose can't stand up anymore.

That's when you break out the machines for some extra special noodling.

And then they'd send the product of their noodling out east, where customers would line up around the block and pay very high prices to get goosed. They'd beg for a little taste and their minds would get blown, they got goosed so hard.

One of my favorite wrestlers growing up as a kid in the 80s was the "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase. I knew he was a "bad guy" and I was supposed to hate him, but I thought it was so cool that he was rich enough to create his own title belt and have a servant he could boss around. And the Million Dollar Dream is a badass finishing hold. I started calling myself "The Hundred Dollar Man" in college as a spoof of my constant state of financial peril.

Mine's pretty easy. A long time ago, I was trying to kill my parents in a murderous, manic rampage and the weapon I was using broke when I slammed it into a metal conduit in the drywall in their bedroom (they were running - which was silly and frankly futile, but that's an easy call through the retrospectoscope). Anyway, it hit the piece of metal conduit and the head of the ax shattered from the force - and so I shouted out, just as the neighbors were arriving, "DAMN AX!"

The rest, as they say, is history.

But I figure that most of you had already figured that out. Just thought I'd contribute.

Ok, pull up a seat for nerdery of the century.

Way back in high school, there were a bunch of wanna-be gangbangers, and then there were me and my cracker-ass friends. We're talking a hick town in northern Colorado, not inner city, so not the "real" gangs. Anywho, I used to drive an old 1980 AMC Concorde that my friends called the "grocery getter" or the "bread machine". We were all out at lunch one day talking to each other about how stupid the kids were who thought they were bangers, and we decided that we should form our own "gang". Since we went to lunch in my car, we circled back to bread as the theme for our "gang names", and we had wheat bread, french bread and me, pita bread. It was fun for the rest of lunch period, and the rest of the day.

The rest of the day consisted of playing Duke Nukem 3D on the computers that the technology administrator had bought and left in his office for... learning purposes. One of them ostensibly served the school website, but that wasn't a terribly heavy load, and it could play Duke easily while running that in the background. So we did. Unfortunately, being an old DOS-rooted game like it was, it had a limitation of 8 character player names. So I shortened my gang name to Pitabred, and I've been that all over the intarwebs ever since the late 90's.

It states it's purpose- I love Richard Marx, I possess female genitalia, and I threw in the 1 because I felt like it should have a number (that's the first question I'm asked... "Was marxychick already taken?" No, just felt like it wasn't enough).

I didn't catch Firefly when it first came out. I got around to watching it in 2004 after a friend told me about the show. I was 13 years old, and suddenly there was this amazing girl: small and beautiful, dangerous and vulnerable at the same time. It was her eyes that did me in; large and dark, and so damned witchy. She reminded me of a pale, perfect china doll, and I couldn't take my eyes off of her.

Holy crap! I've been wanting to submit this thread for a couple of months now but was never sure what day would be best to get people to actually join in.

So... .Uchiha_cycliste
Well when I decided to stop Lurking on FARK, and IIRC it was right near one of the major hurricanes I had just begun watching/catching up on Naruto. The anime had JUST gotten to the Gara/Sasuke fight and by that point in the anime they had made a big deal over and over about being an Uchiha. Especially since Sasuke and Itachi were the only ones left. So, when Sasuke introduces himself before the fight he does so in a sort of Bondish manner going "Uchiha... ... ... Sasuke" And I was thinking to myself that was really badass, But obviously I'm not a ninja, nor do I have super ninja powers, So I wondered what kind of an Uchiha (and yes, I know it's a surname and that over there they say their names surname first, opposite of us) I could be and decided I would be a cycling Uchiha; or a cyclist Uchiha. Then I decided that I liked Cycliste  a lot better because it ended with a vowel the same way Sasuke and Itachi do.

Hence forth I was known as Uchiha_Cycliste. =D

On the only other forum I'm a member of I signed on while I was still on the cal cycling team and I thought Kakashi was a badass (cuz he is) so I made my handle there Cal_kashi. You knowinstead of Ka.kashi.

I was always told to bring an umbrella to school when it was raining out. The rain never really bothered me, so I always questioned why I had to bring one. But mom and dad told me I had to anyway.

In high school I was able to make my own decisions (or maybe it was Jr. High), and I started defying my parents by refusing to bring an umbrella. Typical teenage rebellious shiat. Of course that's just minor compared to the other stuff I did in my teenage years.

One day I fixed my hair and applied hair spray and then ran like hell to school, or else I was going to be late. Except the hairspray was still wet and it was pouring out. When I got to my home room, my hair looked really swept to one side (and not in a good way), and my best friend told me I looked like I just got kissed by the weather.

Since then, I still haven't given a crap about whether or not it's raining. I'll wear a windbreaker or something, but I don't own any umbrellas since it's just water. So wherever I go, if it's raining out, I just let my hair dry out naturally. And people think I'm weird because I don't use an umbrella, and I get asked about it often enough, I just respond I like being kissed by the weather.

And since all the other aliases I've wanted to use online end up being taken, Weatherkiss is usually absent.

There was a photoshop thread with a g"O"at. So I spent hours and hours in the Gimp making my perfect "Quaker Instant Goatmeal" box, realized I needed to create a login, couldn't think of anything better, then discovered I had to wait 24 hours to post.

I've been taking out my frustration at not getting to use that image by constantly and unwaveringly shiatting on republicanism, and making sure the world knows that you people are the actual true source of evil in the universe ever since.

My mother falsified my birth certificate to pretend to her friends and peers that my stepfather had adopted me (and/or to conceal from her Republican political colleagues that she'd been divorced), but never actually bothered to tell me that all the paperwork I'd been filling out - for college applications, jobs, etc - was in a false name.

So I got nastygrammed by the IRS and various federal agencies, advised that I had 60 days to correct the errors I had made ("what appears to be an attempt to defraud") in various places or risk felony prosecution. I showed up at the social security administration office with piles of paper. I'd managed to get a driver's license in the name of a person who didn't legally exist, I had a paper trail for the fake name, but nothing for the real one.

Ended up having to pay to get my name legally changed, added one of the last names as a second middle name, thus making both names a part of my legal name, then had to fax notices and gather stamped/signed documents to return to the IRS. By the end of the 60 day period (the week after my 18th birthday, IIRC), the people in the SSA knew me by sight and I'd become a sort of living nightmare to data-entry clerks in multiple state and federal agencies. A "data shade."

But I'm not really free to talk right now.

And I like oxymorons but they tend to be too on-the-nose, so I like this name because it seems like an oxymoron, but it really just indicates my desire for my silly, seldom-serious posts to achieve farce as efficiently as possible.

This post is a terrible example.

My name is David P. Hogan. So, I have the email address davidphogan at gmail.

I had another Fark name before it, but I could never remember it because I used it rarely, and I finally lost that name (I think I moved and lost the post it not, and cleaned my cookies around the same time) so I started a new Fark Account to submit some crap. I was drunk, and just figured, "farkit, I'll just use my email address/domain name for this one so I don't forget it."

I realized there's some value in being on a site like this with my real name, even if it's such a common name that I've talked to seven people with the name Dave Hogan as well. So, I get to be kind of anonymous while being accountable for whatever shiat I post on here.

So I have that going for me, which is nice.

A "gyrfalcon" or "jerfalcon" was the largest bird used for hawking in the Middle Ages, and was traditionally reserved for the High King or Emperor. So-called because of the way it "gyred" when it was circling for prey. The gyrfalcon was also called a "tiercel" because the female was one-third or a "tierce" bigger than the male.

Why? Because falcons are awesome.

I have lost my hearing aids before and been without for weeks...
Granted it's ORDERS of magnitude difference but I can commiserate in a small way. And honestly, those were a very rotten couple of weeks for me. I pretty much didn't go to work because it depressed the hell out of me t not be able to interact with my co-workers and to keep being reminded that I was disabled.

Mine is from the days of echo-mail and FidoNet.

/CSB

I was a bad seed in my younger years, hanging out in the religious feeds of FidoNet, ripping and giving shiat to fundamentalist freaks.

My nick came up from a comment made in the feed after I had forced my way into the mail system to play havoc on mail packets.

I set up my own FidoNet node and subscribed to all the religious feeds and then the alternative wacko sex feeds. I wrote down the names of the most retarded fundies. Then, I used a compiler to take huge mail packets from the religious and sex feeds and changed the to and from fields to the fundie names with mail from the sex feeds.

After compiling was finished, I found a mail hub in another state that uploaded the religious feeds to a larger regional hub for distribution. Luckily, he wouldn't be password protected - as most BBSes weren't in those days on their frontend software. I reconfigured my frontend to look like one of the hub's clients and pushed my dirty packet through.

A day or two later, my work had spread itself all over the globe to whoever subscribed to the religious feeds. I sat down to read how one fundie asked another fundy how he liked the thong panties he got him, other conversations touched on the topic of golden showers and even scat. Now, I just had to wait to see if the fundies would take the bait.

They did. They started flaming others that appeared to be homosexual, severely offended at the scat mail - you name it, they bought it. I consider it to be the funniest goddamn moment in my entire life. A little while later, after they started to calm down and realize they'd been made fools of, they blamed it on a person out there of maximum hatred that worked for satan.

I changed my nick to Satanus Maximus. Thanks!

It started with a weird dream: A Robot Chicken style cartoon of kids playing Super Robot co-op game. A nerdy kid uses a "randomizer" function to generate his mech and is saddled a hideous purple thing, and is promptly mocked out of the game by teammates. He then logs out and rejoins, again using the "randomizer" function. This time he receives a mec that is, essentially, the BBC miniseries version of Marvin the Paranoid Android only with an armor plate where his face should be making it impossible to see. The kid then screams "DAMMIT WHY DO I KEEP GETTING STUCK WITH THE STUPID ROBOTS" and trips over a mountain. I burst out of a dead sleep LMFAO and startled the crap out of my then girlfriend. Later, I told the story to an artist friend who was prompted to create the cartoon of me as a robot that is in my profile including a bumper sticker on my head that read "Now I Is". When asked why he simply stated that it "Just seemed to fit". I couldn't disagree.

Gwynplaine is the hero of Victor Hugo's story 'The Man who Laughs' A man who is disfigured to have a permanent smile on his face. (Gwynplaine is acknowledged as being the inspiration behind The Joker (Physically)
For years I worked with children with Angelman's Syndrome, which has the pleasant side effect of making the child always happy and leaves them with a huge smile on their face.
I later got cancer of the perotid gland and the surgery severed nerves in my face leaving me with some permanent facial paralysis, and now when I smile its a big goofy disfigured smile.
I find it relatable.

This is the kind of handle you come up with when your original choice is taken so you look around your office and think, "well, I have a stuffed opus (yuppy opus, though I think it was bathtub opus back then) and a Kermit the frog figure, how about KermitOpus."  I also do a better Kermit than the guy in the new movie, so I have that going for me.

Just thought I'd add that culottes in modern French means underwear (or panties for women) but originated from the long leggings men wore during the Middle Ages.

And somewhat related segway to mine, lumiere is French for light. My full name translates to 'enlightened night' so I just chose light for Fark, despite the fact I'm more of a nocturnal Farkette. And no, I didn't choose it because of the Disney 'Beauty and the Beast'  candelabra.

When I was 14, I got me an 8-month-old dachshund from the local SPCA. I thusly became a "dachshund person". I don't know if anyone can refrain from becoming a dachshund person after having one. Dins had about 100 nicknames, but 'weiner dog' was one of the more commonly used ones; chances are pretty good I'd just called him "weiner dog" when I was trying to come up with a Fark account username. (CSB side note: I've always preferred spelling it with the 'ei' combo, even though it's simply an 'accepted variant', and not the proper spelling. I am slowly transitioning to the 'ie' spelling of wiener after all these years. It's oddly difficult.)

Sparky the Fire Dog: davidphogan: Sparky the Fire Dog: I'm a volunteer firefighter, and I end up wearing the "Sparky" mascot costume in parades pretty often.

That's a creative way to hide a female firefighter during the fundraisers.

Ha. Really it's just because the rest of 'em wear dress uniforms, and they don't have one that fits me. I do have the functional gear though, so, good enough!


Uhhhh... Congrats on the functional gear, but maybe you might want to see if you can get a dress uniform as well. I've never been a firefighter, but I was an EMT, and I'd just think you'd want all your members to be able to dress up for formal events without needing to be a mascot.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems weird if someone who is willing to risk their life to save mine can't dress up with the rest of the guys if they save my ass.

I wanted something that could be taken as an actual given name but was, in fact, a cultural reference for those who recognised it.

I briefly used the name Trevor McDoughnut here, taken from Lenny Henry's character on Tiswas, (pops) which was itself a parody of newsreader Trevor McDonald.

I decided that that wasn't sufficiently ambiguous so after a bit of thought I changed it toGordon Bennett, which not only fit the bill as an expression in general but also evoked Holly from Red Dwarf and Ace from Doctor Who for extra nerd street cred.

The Great Janitor...

In high school I would write a shiat ton of stories and exchange them with a friend of mine. In one story I had him being chased by The Great Janitor Yggdrasil. Then I started to get notes in my locker from someone named The Ghost of Christmas 1947, in my friend's hand writing, so I would reply back with letters from The Great Janitor Yggdrasil. This was in the 10th grade. This continued throughout the rest of high school with the letter exchange taking on a weird story line of their own. At one point he was Grand Governor General High Lord Almighty Great Janitor Yggdrasil esquire. After high school we'd see each other and the first thing we'd say to each other was "A friend stopped by..." and exchange letters. Our senior year of high school others got in on it. There was the Shadow of Past Present and Future; sentient peanut butter (I don't remember his name, just what he was); Tina, High Ruler of the Tropics of Pleasure; The Evil Butterfly Collector, Fish Head Volume Guessing Man, and another who's name I don't remember, just that he was a dildo. And of course, as everything continued, the characters were all evolving. Great Janitor eventually got a girlfriend named Hannah the Universal Cheerleader.

After High School, things continued and continued. Eventually I put everything into a story centered around The Great Janitor and his rivals TGOC-1947 and the Shadow and titled the story "Oh My Janitor!" (I got the title idea from an anime video cover box titled 'Oh My Goddess!' at the video store. This was 1998). It started out as a three part story and blossomed into a weekly story that was being passed around at my old high school and a couple apartment complexes. It was awesome to be at the mall and over hear someone shout "Oh my janitor!". Sadly, that only happened once, but I it was still awesome. Hannah eventually became Hannah the Head Cheerleader of the Universe and ended it once the story collection reached a thousand pages. Shared it for a few more years. Amazed at how being a series of multi-part stories it actually has an over all story arc and what happens in one story has consequences that follows into the following stories. I still have the book all these years later. My wife hasn't read any of them yet. Someday I may let her. It's really hard to be 34 years old, pick up stuff you wrote at 19 and not want to face palm as you read it, even though when you wrote it, 30 and 40 year olds read it, enjoyed it and said "Get this published!" I may rewrite it some day.

Uhhhh... Congrats on the functional gear, but maybe you might want to see if you can get a dress uniform as well. I've never been a firefighter, but I was an EMT, and I'd just think you'd want all your members to be able to dress up for formal events without needing to be a mascot.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems weird if someone who is willing to risk their life to save mine can't dress up with the rest of the guys if they save my ass.

Concern appreciated. I'm fairly new though - that's really the reason I don't have a dress uniform yet. I'll get one next time they have a few people to order for. They really do treat me about like they would a smallish guy - like giving me the heaviest thing they can find to carry (testing my strength) - but other than that I'm the same as anyone.

I'm working on becoming an EMT too! Should be certified in March.

I'm an idiot.
I've had a lot of screen names, many of which were pretty stupid, but e-christ is the worst. I've almost signed up for a new account a number of times, but just never could bring myself to pull the trigger.

See, elsewhere on the internet, I've used my real first name, Eric, with the last name Christ, but at the time I didn't want to use my name (these days I don't care, and there're enough Eric Christs on the internet that googling the name doesn't turn up anything related to me for pages). So I thought of E. Christ, but then, in a moment of pure stupidity, I thought, "Haha, what if I did e-christ, like an e-machine or e-trade or whatever. 'I am Christ for the internet age' it'll say to people! This is genius!"

Pretty much the second I confirmed the account, I thought to myself "This is the worst screen name I've ever picked." And it has remained so ever since.

Yes, alcohol was involved.

In that case congrats, and good luck with the EMT tests. (They were easier than I expected, but that was a while ago in NY.)

If fundraising is an issue, consider that (1) this is fark (2) you're female (3) you're a firefighter, which is quite badass, and (4) the FarkUs tab seems like a good spot to try to ask for help with fundraising, especially if 1 and 2 apply.
