    Just thought, in case anyone cared, I had Paul change my username from Bad_Habit_Bassist to my name :cool:. Still a Spector nut, still the same Ray :smug:. Flame me now.

    Ray :p
     
  2. What a sheep. Trendy sheep following the masses.

    Your own name for a username... Bah!
     
  3. OK. You suck. When you were Bad Habit Bassist...I envisioned a man dedicated to his trade despite his vices of smoking, drinking, and general debachery. A man unashamed of his lifestyle. A man that said "hey! no matter what you think of my negative impact on society, I play bass....and it's part of my identity". A man my children should look up to for his single minded focus on music, and a man they should look away from because of his poor example. A man to admire and a man to be ashamed of. Now you're just Ray.

    From AIM, or from my first username here though? haha, thank God Paul is so awesome :). On AIM though, I'm no longer BasSR305 :crying:.
    And actually, the bad habit came from bad bass playing habits, not from bad life habits. Hopefully I'm moving away from them now though.

    It's cool, we can still think of Ray as a cross-dressing nun impersonator who wears lots of bling on the old outfit, no? :cool:

    Yes, there are quite a few people now copying me I've noticed... but I like to think of them as my cult following, rather than copiers :).

    Could be worse. You could be named Ray Salamon.

    That would be me. However, it should be noted that nothing less is to be expected of me.

    You know, I think it's sad now that anytime I read anyone's posts that I met, I hear their voice saying what I'm reading... kinda scary. :eyebrow:

    I'll just hope I somehow met or exceeded your expectations in the vocal department.
