I am just curious how people got their nicks. Like schwar's name is Josh or Hajiku_Flip is into skateboarding and ..... but Malone, Mechaforce, TMM etc?

I picked mine because I like wolverine. Weapon X. But when I went to sign up for a cool on-line game called WWII on-line it was taken so, XWEAPON.

Mine?? Hmm

Well, about 2 years ago I thought that whole gundam thing was cool ( i saw a show on TV) and the word "Mech" just stuck. Mech - mecha.

As for the 'force'? Don't know. It just seemed to fit. Mecha Force sort of sounds like a poorly translated japanese space game.

Well yeah, as X said, my name partly revolves around Skateboarding. The name 'Flip' was taken off from the fact that I'm a tech-trick guy, and I like the company 'Flip'. The Hajiku part was from playing WA! (www.withauthority.com) and I had joined a Faction where the theme was sort of a Japanese thing. So I got Flip translated into ..whala!...Hajiku! But after a while, people only remembered Hajiku, so I had to leave it in with Flip no matter what. And it sorda stuck with me. So I'm Hajiku_Flip biggrin

Jealously GUARDED FLesh was the subtitle of the first creature costume I made with my own two hands that really broke out of the box. It was a 100% orignal outfit where I jsut dragged a nightmare into life and really did myself proud. A Technological undead revenant with blue blood and a beating heart.

I shorted the name for me however, but the full name JGF will be my production company for awhile.

Pics of the costume can be found here:

Well I suppose I should explain. One day in Spanish Class, my friend and I were on the computers researching "Ricky Martin" for our paper. We signed up on Yahoo to play chess (well actually tag team cuss at the opponent until they left the board and one of us would win) but we needed nicknames. I tried Steakman, but that was taken, so my friend became Superboinker and I became Megasteakman. Just incase you were interested...

No, I don't believe that a person can turn into a wolf. Lycanthropic Disorder is actually a very rare form of Schizophrenia in which the person believes they turn into a wolf. It is actually such a powerful disorder that the full moon actually triggers the "change". It's a change of mind, not body, and the afflicted "sees" hair grow on their body just before reverting back to a primitive state of mind. (Growling, biting, no comprehension of what's around them, etc.). They've been known to kill people too. Pretty narsty stuff. I made a film about it for school, actually. I'd upload it, but it doesn't have any AlamDV effects. Just some cheap morphing and Photoshop stuff. Lot's of fun, zero cash lol . If I can find any sites (I may have deleted my bookmarks for it) I'll PM them to you.

Werewolf? I have a theory that you can deduce and understand someones personality by finding out what their favorite undead/horror creature is.

Vampire people are sexually repressed
Wolf people like the thrill of "letting go" and hulking out
Zombie people (like George Romero) appreciate ... well... Im thinking about it

Personally, Im a Revenant kind of guy. THe HEadless Horseman, Ringwraiths, and Mummy fall into this catagory. Strong Silent type, with Kick ass power to back themselves up. Never say a word, just dont F with them.

Shabam Fire Beetle Movie Corporation...It started as a movement against our school to leave our trash on our tables and not get caught by the dirty dirty narks that would bug us...It sprung from a time when some of my friends were high and they started tossing around the word "SHABAM." And then a lot of my friends played EQ so thus came the Fire Beetle part of the equation...After the movement failed (but without success on some accounts. We turned over tables to prove our point..mwaahhaha) we turned to movies and are now known as the Shabam Fire Beetle Movie Corporation.

VisionLab User VideoWrap User PhotoKey 2 Pro User FXhome Movie Maker Windows User MacOS User

SuperUser

My nickname came from a story I wrote about me having a split mind. Basically. 'er-no' was appropriate... Read and find out. smile

'Enter er-no'

(Joby's Story)


Joby was not an ordinary boy, long had he dreamed of being normal, but sadly not one doctor could find the solution to his problem, the final diagnosis was,

'....you son suffers from what we now call a brain divide, his personality is split, not like normal spilt personalities, as one side of your son wants to kill the other, they are permanentely in battle, we could give him drugs, but sadly the lung problems he inherited are not going to allow him the drugs to keep him stable....'

That was that, they locked Joby in a room for nine more years, through personal teaching and training he managed to put the evil part of him well inside himself. They called this other half Tom.

He was hiding behind a mask for he knew that if he let his guard down for one second he would allow Tom the right to enter the world.

When Joby reached the age of 22 they released him naming him stable and with a right to freedom. The hospital discharged him into the only place they saw fit. The Streets of Paragon.

***************

There I was,
Fumbling around I remember smelling some awful brew, I managed to climb onto the wastebin and look into the window of a house which had a few people grouped around... I could make out them as being rather large, I looked somewhat human to them, I knew at that point I would never have to leave Paragon because I would fit in here....

...suddenly I remember this tall dark one looking around, he saw me at the window and pointed, I remember running, sadly it was to know good, the ally was at an end, the figure with a twisted cape came out of the right doorway, he approached me and with his red slit eyes began to burn at my face.

Screaming brought me only more pain, I was coughing without being touched, I felt scars appearing on my face, and then my heart began to burn. I then opened my eyes again, but this time I was outside my body. Suddenly I stood up. I was looking at myself from the outside of my head, much rather like a third person experience the doctors had talked about or I had dreamed about while in my coat white bed. I was no longer in control, Tom had taken over my body and with a huge swing of my arms had hit the caped figure across what can only be called his upper body. He burst into flames, and the three alike figures behind him seemed to quickly move away. Then I re-entered my body, I felt all the pain I was feeling the moment before I left it an instant, what just happened?

Holding my face in deep agony I went into the now empty building that I had just looked into. I felt so different, what had just happaned? I asked myself again.

'I'm free', I turned around, some strange voice had said something to me... 'I'm free' it said again.

This voice wasn't coming from a distance nor was it changing in pitch. It was in my head.

'Tom?' I said with a very nervous voice.
'Yes'

I was talking with the one thing that I had battled for the last nine years, I looked upwards at the ceiling, it seemed so very close.

'Joby, we are one now'
'What do you mean' I cried slowly
'Find a mirror!' he ordered.

Shuffling for a mirror my left arm lifted itself up and rubbed the left side of my head, I watched it do this, and tried to move it down to stop and close it with my right arm. It was impossible.

'Quickly, mirror will help'

No mirror in this building, maybe those caped guys didn't want to look at their own ugly mugs, I wandered out onto the streets again and found a metal plate, wiping it with my right arm I bent over to look in it....

...speechless, I stared without movement at the plate. My face had been divided into two halves, one looking terribly old ang grey and the other looking powerful and wise. The finger that had touched me from the hooded man had released the doubled mind and now both were fighting over the same body. I slumped back down onto my rear, and cried, men aren't meant to cry I had been told in the hospital, these werent tears, this was internal. I would have preferred to have died then unleash the dangers of my innerself. There I was, a disfigured creature with immense power in my left side, and wise and human power in my right.

Tom said he would help me, I believe he will kill me.

****************************

(Tom's Story)

I was trapped in this body, sharing it with a human? If I was to ever end the torture it would be easy for me just to kill myself, so I battled with Joby the real owner of the body, he didn't know the story, and why his body was shared....

...many years I looked through Joby's eyes in a strange 3rd person way, I grew with him crying as I tried to communicate, I grew with his thoughts and knew exactly what he was trying and planning, the fault was that we shared a single mind with the power of two, so he knew exactly what I was doing when I doing it.

He called it a mask, and he did very well to hold me back, I was impressed by his power of mind and thought. What he didn't know was that I didn't want to end him, finish him, or at that point replace him.

When this body reached I feel it was at about 22 years old. We were released from 'Prison' and thrown onto the streets of Paragon.

***************

I share is pain, I share his thoughts, I was him. The caped figure had got us onto our knees, and I felt my essence of life pour through the individual vains of Joby's body, I felt my old face expand out onto the left side, the physical appearance of the arm did not change, but my old powers came back.

Through our left eye I saw the figure who had put me in this position, more pain flowed and he wanted to kill us both, this was not how I wanted to end completely? I would not take Jobys life through a past mistake of my own.

I swang my arms with such fury it would have made any upright figure or building fall. At the moment, I was the driver, Joby was the passenger. What just happened?

Holding his face Joby looked in complete agony, reading his thoughts he felt so different and he kept asking himself what was happening. I could explain all the years, but not that last bit.
I had never wanted to nor tried to speak before, but out came words.

'I'm free', Joby turned around, my whispering voice said... 'I'm free'.

My voice was coming from the mind, teleopathy on a strange level.

'Tom?' Joby said with a very nervous voice.
'Yes' I replied.... leaving the sentence open.

With that open sentence I asked myself to go get a mirror, at that point I relised I would have to intercept all of Joby's brain thoughts as to what movement he was going to do, I was his left side. Walking wouldn't have been halve as successful without the left leg.

We came outside and found a metal plate, even I was not prepared for the figure that faced me. My old face/body had managed to creep through about 50% of the skin on Jobys old left hand side. It was somewhat sickening even for a hero like me....


...I was going to explain to my body the story of why I was like this. It wasn't going to be easy. However for us to continue we must share.

Welcome er-no.

I got my name cause I thought it'd be terribly original and clever to spell Clown with a "K"

Do I win?

boy, do I feel silly! I made a new topic based on this same idea, the only problem is, I didn't know this one existed until just now! I'm a person who abhores most forms of abbreviation, thus I never thought to search for 'nick' as in nickname. I started a thread titled "Online Alias. . ." found here:
http://www.csb-digital.com/alamdv/community/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6536

I guess I'll post here too!

I go by the name Ice_Man because IceMan was already taken smile contrary to what some of you may think, I'm not a huge Top Gun fan, and have heard every crack about it known to man. . . I go by Ice_Man because I thrive in cold. My ideal room temperature is around 50 degrees fahrenheit. I also go by Ice_Man because he's one of my favorite superheroes, iceman of the x-men
if you ever come across a "Shimosama" in another forum, chances are good that it's me as well. I found that in the Japanese language, iceman would be translated as "Kooriya" which they use to mean a vender of ice cream. I did some more checking, and settled on "Shimosama" which translated literally means "Frost God" which was an acceptable alternative

some people that have known me for a long time think that the Top Gun reference to Ice_Man fits me well, too. I have been known to be a little cold, and uncaring to most situations that don't concern me directly. I guess you could call it a lack of empathy. a character flaw that I strive daily to correct. . . (if you promise not to stone me, I'll pm those who ask with examples if you don't already understand what I'm talking about. . .)

I've been IceMan or Shimosama since before I can remember, in games, in forums, and in e-mail (once I had the email address iceman@frost.net! it was the coolest email address ever! then frost.net stopped offering email service. . . I was sad)

The story of Curtin Parloe...

About 8 years ago I was writing short stories, before I started writing scripts smile Being a bit of a closet scifi fan I was setting them in the future. I surmised that eventually, people will be thinking of inanimate objects to name their kids after (talk about prophetic - See Chardonnay in Footballers Wives. Thieves! I should get royalties! twisted)
My first choice was:
Cardigan Ritchie
but I realised that it was actually named after the authors of Learning C+
(Kernigan and Ritchie) lol
So I came up with a few ideas:
Percolator Jones
Sofa Wilkins
etc...
And then, like manna from heaven,
Curtain Parloe
Not only loads of potential for jokes (curtain pole etc) but it sounds a bit like a 50s detective:
Curtain Parloe - Ace Detective
I dropped the A so it wasn't (quite) as obvious where it came from, and when I started using the internet more and needing passwords, what better?
