The name Jabooza Clog Booza is the name of a fictional character in comedic stories writen by Clawgaboozawgis (whose name also comes from these stories).
Why'd you pick the name you did?

When I was in fourth grade (about 10 years old) I started writing a Star Wars fan fic about a guy who becomes the most powerful sith ever, and he could like blow up planets with his mind, and there were 3 operational Death Stars. Anyway, the sith guy's name was Waser, and ever since then, I have used it for everything. I'm cool by the way.

I chose Zephlon because my name is Weston, see the correlation? oh wait there is none.

the real reason my name is Zephlon is because I thought that was the name of the Protoss leader from StarCraft. So I made it my gamertag. but turns out his name was really Zeratul, not even close, but Zephlon stuck with me ever since then.

When I was about 5 and my family got Juno on our SWEET MS-DOS 500mHz processor, they chose email addresses with their first initial, followed by our last name. PAdams and SAdams and such were taken, but a suggested following number was 3308. (Completely random number, I always thought it had meaning) Since then, that's been the number for everything online or in person, with any of us. For a time, it was both my parents' PIN numbers and my the code to house's security system. It's not anymore, though. wink

So ben3308 it is. And my high school graduating class is '08. So it sort of makes sense.

Oh, yeah. And my name is Ben. I've talked to the guy with the actual name "Ben" on this site, and he's told me time and time again I can't have his username. It's not like he uses it, though.....

Atom.

I'm a twin with Ben, and more often than not people just call me "Adam" (last name's Adams) because it's pathetically too hard for people to remember my actual name over Ben's, making us "Ben and Adam". So I adopted that as a username. From there, mine and Ben's first real movie was called "Atom", which later led to Atom Productions.

For a while there, too, we were called Atom Brothers, so 'Atom' was fitting for a name. Spelling and sound.

Something I find odd about your user, Atom, is that one of your old user names was 'Aculag' and there is a real (and active posting) user with that same name, which is odd because the website would have never let two people have the same user name.

Just a few comments on some posts I've read:

Tarn reminds me of robots (this thought existed long before he used his transformers avatar, so it wasn't directly influenced by that.)

I must be a nerd, I know who Thrawn is (Thrawn trilogy). But I only know that because my friend talks about it a lot with me and I've been meaning to read it.

I like the name Raurie. It's unique and cool sounding. I'd trade "Conor" any day. Though it sound weird with my Irish last name.

I also stole Aculag's name on his absence. I like to think of it as reserving it (with my beta account I had pre-AlamDV2 purchase).

I did not know Waser's origin. I feel enlightened now.

My username comes from snakes in general. I love snakes and have been studying herpetology, capturing, wrangling, and now photographing reptiles (namely snakes) since I was 11 (I'm now 17). Snakes are just very interesting to me. CPO Studios originated from when I made a puzzle when I was 6-years-old, I labelled it under that "copyright" on the back. I've used it since then (Conor Patrick O'Sullivan.) I kept it because it rolls of the tongue somewhat well and its origin is old and cool.

Slurvian is a term coined by this English professor that did a video on the past, present, and future of the English language. Slurvian is apparently what English will turn into with all the slang and words running into each other. Basically in the future English will cease to exist and it will deform into Slurvian.





I really like the word Slurvian so I chose it as my final "company" name.

Excession is the name of a book by Iain M Banks. Its part of The Culture series and is an absolute must-read for anyone remotely into sci-fi; it'll blow your mind.

I read it in 1998 and It blew my mind so much, i adopted the name after removing the leading 'E' to give it that added INTARWEB LOL! appeal.

Its also the source of my home computer/server nomenclature, since Excession has a vast array of cool names given to the 'characters'.

I've thought about changing my handle often, but its too well established.

Everyone knows Grand Admiral Thrawn!

Interesting to see people's origins, especially Waser. I always think of Waser as a small, fluffy creature, so it doesn't really fit with an evil Sith.

'Tarn' comes from a novel I'm in the process of writing and is the name of one of the lead characters. When I first came online (I've been writing this book for a while, you see....), I needed a name so I randomly chose a name from the book.

Picking the name for the book, involved me trying to find a name that symbolised clarity of thought and being connected with the universe/nature. A 'tarn' is a small mountain lake, which seemed to fit the general essence of the character I was going for.

There's a River Tarn in France, which came up during a television game show recently and freaked me out. Similarly, some friends of mine that like their hiking went traipsing around Wales recently and came back with stories of "climbing up to a beautiful tarn."

Most confusing.

When I was in 1st grade I wrote a comic book with a friend about how the mascot of the Malmö (the city I live in) Icehockey Team, called Redhawks (which is a red hawk), escaped from the arena. Since the swedish translation of "escape" is "rymmer", we called the book "Redhawks Rymmer". So a few years ago when I joined fxhome, I couldn't really think of a name, so one day I went back and looked in some of my old comic books (yeah, we made like 15-20 of them) called "Redhawks Rymmer". So I decided to just put it together and form "Redhawksrymmer".

Heh, pretty complex, but there's the story.

Heh, no, to be honest I've got no idea why we continued to call it that. The comics got more and more violent with each episode and the final ones we created was pretty over the top, and had nothing to do with the title at all razz

Which is not a movie about how great I am (even though the title might suggest otherwise), the name "Sollthar" is the villain in the movie and one of the first characters I've created. Since the name is pretty unique, I used it connecting to Westwood Chat back in 1994 or so, when I first got internet. And I stuck with it ever since.


And sollthar is pronounced with a hard T, not an english "th". Like Soll-Tar.

Having been christened with an annoying name, I quickly adopted Mel on the suggestion of a childhood girlfriend. Noticing the similarity between that and French/Spanish names for honey aged 10, I discovered the word mellifluous - smooth-talking, pleasant to the ears, honey-tongued etc. It's been my main web moniker ever since.

See-Ecks-Three sounds so much more badass than thinking C times 3, Chris. You just ruined my thoughts on that. wink

And speaking of badass, when are you gonna make that Green Lantern flick? Believe me, I've got plenty of green color filters to supply you with for it. Guess why. wink

I am a fan of the Battle Chasers comic series by Joe Madureira. Garrison (pictured here with the sword and blue gloves) was once a great swordsman and legendary warrior who started drinking after his wife's death.



My daughter is named after the DC comic book Teen Titans character Raven, although she was born before Cartoon Networks' version of the Titans.

It means C times 3 but it IS pronounced See Ex 3. Dont let it ruin you hah.

And speaking of badass, when are you gonna make that Green Lantern flick? Believe me, I've got plenty of green color filters to supply you with for it. Guess why.
Niiice, we are actually trying a very small short based off the Justice League.. like real small short.. 2 lil nights of shooting if anything. But Lantern will be in there, batwoman, mr. terrific and huntress. (Promo Pic)



It should be a fun lil project to try out. Aaaand I think I know why you have all those green filters. But I dont quite understand why you would want to distill marijuana.

You're a funny one, aren't you? wink *cough*Ca-Splinter Cell!*cough* JL looks cool. I'd suggest, if you haven't filmed yet, to take a look at the latest batch of exceptional Smallville episodes and the JL one for a practical and fairly realistic view of the almighty heroes.

There was a character named "Balini"? I think... in "the kids in the hall" tv show about 20 million years ago. A buddy of mine was forever coming up with different variations on it because he thought it was funny.

Hank Balini,
Hank Santanna, like Carlos Santanna because I play guitar.
One night during christmas we were all hanging out, I used to were one of those wallet chains that attaches to your belt loop but it made this god aweful loud sound like when you have to much change in your pocket. since it was christmas and my wallet chain sounded like the bells on a raindeer slay, my buddy "Tadur" called me Hank Santannaclause. Like Santa Clause... get it?
So I was inside grabbing a beer while everyone was out in the patio. As I made my way back outside I could hear all the guys talking with a really high pitch on their voices, to sound like little kids. They kept saying... It's him momma... I can hear him momma. I know it's him momma. It's Hank Santannaclause. It was funny because we were drunk. Wow that was back in '96.

Anyway, I liked the name Hank so it stuck and I like spiders.
Spydurhank, pronounced with a southern drawl... why? because I'm southern.

Cool thread BTW. Frank.

Mine is not that colorful...
My name is Bryan Michael Block, hence Bryan M Block.

For years though, I spelled "Bryan" with an umlaut as in: Brÿan
I even have certificates and checks with that printed on them.It's a long story...

My other "cyber-name" is b.complex, which is the name of my consulting company and kind of a play on words...I think I will change my user name to that!

Orin Warren created when I was thinking of a pin name. Orin was my middle name while I thought Warren felt like it flowed with it.

For what it's worth, b.complex is a giant step down from your actual name, Bryan. A codename gives anonymity and freedom to choose a moniker. Once you've established your actual name (I'm similar, in that I'm 'Ben') changing it from that devalues the 'brand' that is you.

Honestly, I saw a recent post in the Filmmaker's Forum from b.complex about a film and decided to skip it on the basis it was from a user I'd never heard about.

My personal opinion, change the name back.

I see the point.. I was just bored and looking for fun. I don't get to hang out here much anymore.

Name changed back.
