    Hey everybody. Just wanted to make a note that I've changed my screen name. A lot of stuff in my personal life is changing in the next month or so, so I figured I'd change the old username as well. It was a nickname I'm not really known by anymore, and as with the upcoming year, I'd like to make a fresh start.

    I'm probably going to be moving to the Cleveland at the end of January, a place I know very little about, after living in CT my whole life. I'm going to try to take it as an opportunity to start fresh and get rid of all my bad habits and histories. I'd like to start eating better again (i.e. mostly organic, very low sugar diet), start showing my paintings in more galleries, and begin aggressively searching out new bandmates and friends. I've never really had a chance to start over, so I'm hoping this will do it. Ok, useless rant over. Thanks for listening.

    P.S. If anyone knows anything around Cleveland to do, let me know.

    Right on! A fresh start sounds very good right about now. Maybe I need a new screen name too. Let's see... hmm... StupidBrent... No that's been done... I dunno, guess the name stays for now.

    Fedora man that's funny! My music minister can never pronounce it right. I think he's trying to be funny but he always calls it - that fedora bass. Once I corrected him, and he goes "Well fedora, fridgidaire, whatever." I dunno.

    Enjoy your fresh start. I'm kind of jealous.

    you can change your screen name?
    how is this done?
    do i have to make a new account or something?
    is it only for supporting members?

    i'm getting tired of the "savagelucy" "fear and loathing" thing.

    I've never actually been in it, although I've driven past it like four times on the way to the downtown international market for breakfast brats :rolleyes: Definitely a place to visit when I'm there.

    I guess I will use this as an oppurtunity to tell everyone that I changed my username from Supergreg to Drew Gutrath.
