Explain your nickname
« on: June 13, 2012, 08:43am »
I thought we since some of us have nicknames that aren't self-explanatory, some would like to explain how they came up with them.

Mine is a Beatles song:

But it's kind of sarcastic, because I believe most if not all of us behave like nowhere men and that's what I'm desperately trying to escape, you know? Having a greater purpose in life, better that just sustaining life itself and blind consumerism.

How bout yours?

Well, mine is a whole lot easier. Practically, it's just a characters name from Naruto: Shippuuden. One of my favourite characters, of course, especially at the times, when he had Zabuza's sword (which rocks BTW). That's all to it

Well, I myself always liked the Legendary Super Saiyan. He had greenish hair, unlike other Saiyans (plus big as Hulk :D )

"Harpua" is a Phish song that was a staple of their live concerts, but has now become a rarity and has only been performed live.    Trey Anastasio always narrated a different story at every concert in the middle of the song.

The memory that sticks out in my mind the most is listening to a hissy, cassette, bootleg of this show from '94:

BLaw stands for just.. Blah.. but then with a "w".
Also for B(ish) which is my last name (yeah) and Law for me going by my own laws of life (enjoying it as much as I can with whatever I want)
And because Martial Law used to be my fav Tekken 1/2/3 char.
And because of the song Stand Up by Ludacris (rapper and yeah most of you don't like rap songs) who somewhere goes BLAAAW in his song which I used for mixing songs to introduce the guy who mixed the songs. Which would be me then. Lol.

Complicated isn't it.

On another forum I used to go by the name "Do I have a name?" because I couldn't think of one and was feeling a bit pretentious. After a while everyone started shortening it to Dihan and it stuck. I also use "ynni" in various other places, like YouTube. It is Welsh (my first language) for energy, power or vigour. I didn't actually pick it for a specific reason; I just flicked through a dictionary looking for a word that would amuse me if someone tried to guess at saying it yet without it appearing to be a different language. I also think it's a pretty cute word, appearance-wise.

The Hyperman part of mine is based on a superhero I made up when I was a little kid. (Here's a link to what I wrote about him on my website: http://www.vorazone.com/VoraZone.com-hyperman.htm ; I was a little kid when I wrote this up, by the way.)

The 360 part comes from the fact that my favorite shape is a circle, and there are 360 degrees in a circle. Plus it sounds cool. Nothing to do with the Xbox 360. I don't even own one. (Even though I like Microsoft. Go PCs!)

Bubbleman, from Megaman 2. He's not really my favorite robot master, but I have a drawing of him (given to me by my classmate who drew it last year as a birthday present) in my bedroom, so I decided to put Bubbleman as my username because it was the first thing I saw when I was thinking of an username.
