What does your username mean?

  1. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who wonders what some TB usernames mean, and I'm pretty bored right now.

    So, explain your username! I'll start: mine is pretty self-explanatory. It started out as my YouTube username, and when I came here it came with me. It means "bassist for the Lord." Haha in case you didn't know.

    I picked mine up from an artist collective called the "Rocket Guild" where we all thought it would be great to give ourselves the last name Rocket (a la the Ramones) My friend Joey actually changed his name legally to Joey Rocket.

    oh,.. i'm so glad you asked! i've been wanting to get this off my chest since i came here,.. lol.
    well,.. i was lurking one day when i saw a TB'er selling a "Jaco" fretless for a very low price. i hurried to register and this name was the first to come. as soon as i logged on, i made the deal and now i'm stuck looking like a groupie.., oh well...
     
  8. Mine comes from a strange obsession that i have had with Oscar Meyer. Here are my reasons:

    1. The weiners that they make are delicious
    2. The merch is the best advertising propaganda out there
    3. My grandpa worked in a grocery store and got all this Oscar Meyer stuff for free so he passed on to me when i was a little kid.

    If anyone has any Oscar Meyer stuff that they don't care for, please PM me (shameless, I know)

    Oh, and the 777 is for my Lord.
     
  9. I got mine from a dirty British comic called 'The Viz'. There's a character in it called 'Finbar Saunders and his Double-Entendres' and every time someone says a double-entendre (an innocent comment that can be made to sound sexual) he says "f'nar f'nar".

    Loki, the nemesis of Thor in Norse mythology is the god of chaos and trickery. It is what I named my 8 pound Yorkshire Terrier because he thinks he is a total badass and has this huge ego/air about him and he likes to mess with the bigger dogs. I use it for my psn id as well.
    182 is in reference to Blink182 as it's easy for me to remember

    I've had this aol username since 1995 so..................

    Actually, i've already requested to have a screename change, since I'm making a business of building instruments, so i'm waiting for my request to be responded from the helpdesk.

    Hopefully, the new screenname will be: Rickett Custom (my last name "Rickett")



    **Correction** name has been changed....
     
  12. A funny story...kind of..
    My username used to be SCODI, but I was sick of that and requested a change becouse I felt I had changed as a person and a bassist.
    In my request mail to change my name I requested something like "the artist formaly known as SCODI" (you know, like Prince had^^)
    But I guess it was too long and maybe it was read as "The Artist (formaly known as SCODI)" so I ended up with this name^^ I liked it anyway cos I like to draw, so hay:hyper:

    My user name means "time machine" in Finnish. It's been my 'net alias for years. I got it from a favorite Finnish dance-pop band from the 90s.
     
  15. In one band I was in we started giving everyone a name that had "Otis" in it, My bass rig at that time had a gorgeous Thick tone (Eminence Rubber cones) there was born "Otis Thick" The other band member niknames were: Otis-G, B Otis B and Sweet Otissa Gump!

    :bag:
     
  16. mine is boring... it is the serial number of my "engagement ring" bass which is my main work horse

    Mine is as straightforward as it gets. I wanted to change it to something less boring, but I was told they had to do a forum restart(!) to do that. Oh well.

    At least prospective Toronto students will know where I'm from, I s'pose :eyebrow:

    I use variants of mine as the username for a few different online things. It's based on kind of an inside joke with myself, from playing in bands where the guitars seemed way out of tune to me but no one else seemed to notice. If I'm the only one who hears it, maybe I'm the one with the problem right?

    In retrospect, I realize it probably doesn't make the greatest first impression on a musicians' site. . .
