Probably pretty self explanatory if you know what ethanol is.

My name starts with the letter "K", people called me that, 77 was my football number and 36 is for the former Rams and Steelers running back Jerome Bettis.

My first MMORPG character name. I joined Fark and EQ right around the same time and I was suffering from a fit of originality.
Fark stuck around, gave up on EQ/EQ2 years ago.

I told a friend of mine, who was a big Guns n' Roses fan, that he should call his kid Slaxl, then decided it was too good to waste on a kid, so decided to take it for myself. Unfortunately I'm not the only person who thought of smooshing Slash and Axl together, so there are other Slaxls out there :(

Back in college I made a braggadocios promise to use "Hubie Stubert" as my pen name. And that became my name for radio at WUMF, as well as my nick for cartoons and articles I did for university's paper, and there is even a paper on the Yakuza's influence on Japanese politics that was picked up by a small sociology journal back east that was published under that name. Hubie is my alter-ego, and my go to user name, because of a promise I made to a gal with a great smile. I have a few stories published in various spots under Hubie--some horror fiction, some crime--and when I do blogging, it's the go to as well.

I R Hubie. Folks who know me in real life, sometimes even blur that line where there's a byline. It's odd that folks who I've gotten to know online know me by this nick more than my own name, but I respond to it, because it's how folks have known my writing and performance persona. All because I made a promise to a gal with a killer smile and an amazing laugh. I try to keep those sorts of promises, so Hubie is how y'all know me.

I laughed when I saw how they spelled "check" on the Barry Lyndon Wikipedia page, and pictured some tweed-clad old man dutifully updating the citations on that page every day. He has his morning tea and beans on toast, then immediately proof-reads the Barry Lyndon entry in case anything has changed since he went to sleep the night before.

It's a self-descriptive word I discovered many years ago while reading a John le Carré novel.

My first name is Scott, and for years I would hear "OMG your name is Scott! Do you know there was a song about you in that movie Eurotrip?!" I would usually respond with "What?! I did not know that." Only some of the people would get it.

So shall it be written, so shall it be done.

When I first started using the internet back in college around '96, I used just "jayhawk" a lot. At some point I started sticking on the "88", probably because someone beat me to jayhawk, and that kind of became the standard as site logins became the in thing.
 
2013-11-04 10:33:02 AM
Green, huh?  Okay.

My name is two-fold.  1.  I'm almost in Canada.  Like Sarah Palin with Russia, I can see it from my back yard.  2.  It's based off of a name of a fictional place I used when I used to "write":  Xanadu.

So, yeah.  2-fold.  Coz I'm all next-level like that.
 
2013-11-04 10:34:48 AM
Now that I think about it, I'm surprised I didn't join FARK with my super really old-skool handle: Corlath.

Anyone who gets that wins an internet high-five.  Because damned if I can remember where I got it from.  Some book.
 
2013-11-04 10:37:05 AM
Self-explanatory, and I've used the phile/file thing before, mostly because I like the alliteration and the computer sense.

Sadly, I created my account back when I played a lot of WoW. This was the name of one of my mains.

My first main in vanilla was a priest named Pulsar. I wanted something interesting and exotic.

I still can't read NASA stories without thinking they're talking about me for a second.

Bet you were surprised when you learned that "88" is a code for "Heil Hitler."

8th letter of the alphabet, HH, etc. I guess skinheads opt for subtley sometimes.

No, it has nothing to do with the cartoon.  That's a coincidence.  (I fib not).

I used to be a part of this Catholic youth leadership group, and we put on a conference for teens every year.  We held it in Detroit, even though most of the attendees were from the suburbs (purposefully so).  Every year, one kid would suggest "Streetlight In The Ghetto" when we were figuring out the name/theme of the conference for that year.  Beacon in the darkness, etc.  When I was a senior and that kid had already gone to college, we almost got it through the consensus process before the adult lay person in charge of making sure we didn't f--k everything up stepped in and nixed it.

It's from a very old Letterman Top Ten List - namely, Top Ten Chapter Titles in Dan Quayle's Memoirs.  I figured it was just obscure and silly enough to work as a Fark handle.

Now I'm just about sick to death of it.

Interesting that the first place my mind went to try and figure that out was a phone pad, but not the alphabet. Oh well.

Totally going to recommend jayhawk14 as a possible replacement username, if you feel the 88 might be giving off the wrong signs to people.

It's a nickname from when I was a wee little child that's a play off of the last part of my first name.

I thought about trying to change it to '08, but figured it wouldn't be worth the effort. Plus, some of my older ones like Slashdot or Fark are over 10 years old now.
