The name of a character in a manga and the year I first read that manga and saw the anime.

I screwed up and thought it was just my log in name, and then I would get to create this cool screen name for all these headlines I was going to submit...

I forgot.

No, I forgot my original user name, and came up with this one.

My original user name was based on the name of a baby pet hippo owned by two little old ladies in  the e e Cummings play Him - chapter 2.

I was locked out of my old username because I got fired from the job that had the email for the account and couldn't remember the password. It was 2017 and not being very clever or creative I just went with a popular meme at the time and made a username out of it. I've been on Fark since a friend's dad introduced it to me when I was in 10th grade. That was back in 2002. I've had four accounts since then, hundreds of approved links, and I've found a place online where I can commiserate with all the other hooligans that don't make the news but want to make fun of it.

I thought it was just my login since it said login name and that the name I put in where it said name would be my name.   Then I saw and tried to change it but couldn't and sort of just went fark it and here we are.

I'd been a very occasional lurker for a couple years.  One day I thought I had something very important to say.  I tried to comment and found I needed an account.  I was listening to this album at the time, so made it my username.  After the 24 hour waiting period, my moment to make my very poignant and important point passed.  I never did make my very important point, but I regret nothing.  18 years later, I still think I'll make an important point someday.  But this time I'll be ready to go.

We had two dogs, Mojo and Mongo, my then young son had difficulty remembering which was which and resorted to calling them both 'Mojongo'.

A minor Mark Twain character, an old man with a tendency to loquaciousness. Seemed appropriate.

Didn't realize SOME people would think it meant that stupid bear. ITS NOT EVEN SPELLED THE SAME, PEOPLE.

It was my old AOL screen name.

Juice was a nickname in high school and Pats for the Patriots.

Made an independent movie that never got out of the can.
In the movie, there is a scene at the vent if day one, character exposition, where we review the cast, sitting in their homes, late night, watching a bad movie on tv. The movie? VooDooKungFu. Which, was an amazing short within the movie which encapsulated the plot, thus far. Directorial genius working of subtext on the writer's part.
And if the movie won't come out, I can at least immortalized it on your screens.
Also, it is the name of a band I like.
Also, if you ever get in a thought place, you can just say, "watch it. I took an online course in martial arts, and I know vudukungfu" and they'll leave you alone, because you be Cray Cray.
Have a good weekend. I gotta go dip a broken finger in an ice bath.
For I got it caught in a hydraulic press.
Owsies.

People were being stupid on the internet. In response (and to compound the situation) I picked an arrogant, technically correct username and joined in.

IRL nickname

Also used during the days of Yahoo chat, back when trolling used to mean something.

It should be obvious.

I read the manifesto when I was teenager. Maybe I should check it out again now thats I'm in my 30's and some people don't seem to like serial killers any more.
 
2022-05-21 7:29:26 AM  
Because "God Emperor"  was too pretentious and too much to write.  Yes, the misspelling is intentional.  :)
 
2022-05-21 7:32:47 AM  

the unabomber was right: I read the manifesto when I was teenager. Maybe I should check it out again now thats I'm in my 30's and some people don't seem to like serial killers any more.


Actually, I didn't read it when I was a teenager, that was the anarchist cookbook. I read the manifesto in my 20's after hearing a George Carlin bit. Ironically, that Carlin bit is something most farkers would agree with. But the unabomber? You all seem to hate him here.

I had been a lurker for a couple of years, but finally wanted to join in a photoshop contest. The picture was some kind of funny looking goat and I made a Quaker Instant Goatmeal cereal box but didn't get to log in my new username in time to actually submit it. I just randomly flailed around and this stupid username is all I could think of.

/don't still have the Goatmeal pic

Was going to be my band name, because then instead of having to put up flyers all over the place to promote our gigs, every construction hoarding in the city would promote us by default.  See? Sooper jenius.

Anyway the band never materialized because I am the least musically talented man who ever lived, so I used it here instead.

Bob Seger was on the radio when I signed up.  And the Bob didst speak unto me saying, "You are Katmandu with a Q", and I am.

I was a big fan of South Park and love the Christmas song. I also used it as my Counter Strike (v1.6) handle. Both on here and on other forums it confuses people into thinking I'm Swiss (I'm not).

/One time even tried to order some Beef Log from the US to UK. They couldn't ship overseas. I informed them that 'Christmas isn't Christmas without a Swiss Colony Beef Log'.

You  announce "Farking New Guy" during sex?

The origin is Bonnie Tyler's song "Holding Out for a Hero" from the Footloose soundtrack. There is no meaning to it- Footloose happened to be on the TV when i was signing up, and I always thought it was a funny lyric.

Carried an M249 SAW in the Marines while deployed in a stupid sand war. [the M249 is the smaller belt fed automatic weapon, kinda the only one actually that can be 1-person individually operated.]  Nothing particularly deep or thoughtful lol.

Do often wish I could change it, am not a gun nut and sadly there's been way too much shootie news since I made the darn thing in 2006.

Maybe I could make up a new story about it being related to robots, mass production, or something lol. *shrug*
 
2022-05-21 8:07:26 AM  
It has some deep meaning, or maybe it is more straightforward... I guess you could say it's up to artistic interpretation. Like mathematics and most of my comments.

Some guy on local radio was talking about how he got an Eightball jacket when he was in middle school. I made my account that day with that fresh on my mind.
 
2022-05-21 8:08:11 AM  
It has no meaning whatsoever.

When I first started lurking, I noticed there were a lot of Farkers who had lengthy and unusual names (Bugs Bunny Practiced Psychological Warfare was one of my favorites), so I figured I'd get a daft one, partially to make it easier to spot my own posts.  It comes from an old Letterman Top Ten list, namely the Top Ten Chapter Titles in Dan Quayle's Memoir.

And yes, there has been the occasional second, third and 439th thought.

Gooch was the bully on a classic episode of Diff'rent Stokes played by a younger, menacing Forrest Whittaker. It's also a playful name for the nether regions, to wit: "that fastball got him right in the gooch and he saw stars for a good 30 seconds"

Original was a gamer tag from the 90's... Current which is uh... 14 years old at this point... Was one of my fav 90's SNES games.

It's the punchline of an old joke.
