This is a minor tie-in to the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, and I thought it would be a fun way to get to know to your fellow forum members.  If you haven't introduced yourself yet, please do so!  We'd love to hear more about you.

Think of this as an experimental thread to see how it goes... ^-^ If it goes sour or a bit too off-topic, I'll close it.


What is the origin of your forum username?  How did you come up with it, or what was it inspired by?

If you use your real first name as your forum username, do you have an alternate username that you normally use elsewhere?  What's the story behind that other username? 


(Or, perhaps, you're a superhero in disguise and therefore reluctant to tell us. ;p)

Besides my Nerdom, I'm a big Detroit Redwings fan. Their captain, and the player who was instrumental in turning them around was Steve Yzerman. And back when I used to ride my dirtbike, and didn't have to worry about getting hurt, I had a Yamaha Yz 450F. Back in the dial up days, all the good Star Wars Aol screen names were taken. So I turned to my other hobbies for help, and Yzrfan was born.

Mine is for my favorite character that only appears in two Looney Tunes cartoons with Bugs Bunny. The only monster to wear white sneakers!

I was going to make a joke about what type of disc you ride, but then I realized it would have made me sound old. When was the last time you heard someone say "disc jockey"

Angology was my Guitar Hero band name-it's usually not taken, so I started using it for screen names (sometimes I have to settle for Angelalogy when it is taken).

Guitar hero......I kind of miss spending hours on the Xbox playing it and a new game coming out every month.

Mine comes from the Gatchaman/Battle of the Planets fandom. My favorite character from Battle of the Planets is named Princess. But when I first started out joining a fan group (on Yahoo Groups) obviously all usernames with anything resembling 'Princess' were gone. The character's name in Gatchaman is Jun. As part of the show, the characters transform into superheroes. In Battle of the planets, they say, 'transmute' to transform. So I went with 'Transmute Jun', using the name from the original series and the transformation word from the American version.

So... basically it doesn't make any sense unless you're into Gatchaman, but that's who I am, now. 

ETA   Zero, we have yet too hear from you. *poke*

Obscure, but cool. Isn't that what SDCC is all about?  ;D
