Please explain the origin of your user name
I was a computer programmer from the 80's and wanted to be cute and put D-BASS, but typed the software name D_BASE by mistake. Once saved I couldn't change it.

Pretty simple, the first few letters of my first and last name jammed together.
|scottbass ||02-10-2014 12:25 PM |

I didn't know how to spell bassist when I was little so it stuck. And kkm are my initials

Im a huge Stephen King fan and loved the novella " Rita Hayworth And The Shawshank Redemption"
And considering the prison was close by where i used to live and when i was new to everything in computers i used the name shawshank for everything to make it easy.
But someone at talkbass beat me to it so i had to use 72 my birth year.

Nickname since highschool.
Jazz because it's all I listened to back then and Ad because it's the beginning of my last name.
Only musicians and people online use it nowadays.
|Twocanbassman ||02-10-2014 12:34 PM |
Twocan was a nickname branded upon me in college - partially due to the size of my nose and further influenced by my tolerance.

I like zeppelin and I thought "thesongremainsthesame" was too long of a username.

Skindie is the genre of music my band play, Ska / indie :p
|MonetBass ||02-10-2014 12:36 PM |
My last name is spelled M-O-N-N-O-T, and is pronounced maun-aut (sorry, Jazz Ad - it's been Americanized). But invariably people pronounce it like the French painter's name Monet, so I just went with it. Hence the "Water Lillies" bass in my avatar.

Went with some friends a LONG time ago to see a movie - Hollow Man, in fact.
There was the standard series of "upcoming" movie posters along the side of the theater, including an advertisement of "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius". Someone in my little crowd piped up and said, "Hey Tim, look, shouldn't it be TIMMY Neutron, Boy Genius?" Ostensibly because I'm smart and stuff. :ninja:
Anyway, another of the crowd poked the bear and says, "More like Neurotic Tim!" Possibly because I'm neurotic. Or because I'm not. I'm not quite sure on that point.
Anyway, the name stuck, and eventually I created a hotmail account. Then a bunch of other sites. Then came Talkbass, and all the cool, bass-related names were taken.
|dwjazz54 ||02-10-2014 12:38 PM |
The "dw" are my initals.
I was around 16 years old, had only been playing a brief while, and was trying to get into playing jazz, hence the "jazz".
And, no joking aside, the same name with the year of my birth or any other significant number was taken. So I picked a random one.
|repoman ||02-10-2014 12:40 PM |
I once had a job where breaking into locked cars was one of my responsibilities....plus did you ever see that movie...awesomeness!
