Snooty as fuck, Gangster as shit.
Mine's a still from DePalma's over-the-top take on Phantom of the Opera.
Why? Back in June, I was evicted from my apartment at 9am by a constable waving a flashlight in my face. He gave me five mins to get out while a locksmith worked on my front door. Grabbed a change of clothes, my wallet and cat. Washed up at a friend's house. Rather than be a mopey fuck about it, I spent my remaining money on beer and chicken for a BBQ. Watched Phantom of the Paradise while we ate. A fitting avatar for the times, I guess.
I like Starcraft... don't hate!
On the old board, my username was KittyKat_420, which was my account name in Diablo 2. My name is Kathryn and I like cats*, so my friends used to call me Kitty, Kitten, or Kittykat. I guess I thought it was cool to add "420" when I was 14, so Kittykat_420 was an easy choice. I have a hard time coming up with new names that I like, so when I made my account on TMMB in 2003, I just used my default name. I carried the name over to the RMMB through force of habit.
Kittykathryn was one of my characters in Diablo 2**, but I didn't play her much. I started playing Final Fantasy XI (the online one) in 2004, and my character was a cat-girl so it seemed to fit and I reused it. I spent 2.5 years playing that one character every day, so I started to identify with the name. I now use it for most things I do online, and it is usually the name of my first character when I join a new server in online games. I'm glad I came up with it because I think it has a nice ring to it, and is much better than anything else I've thought of. Unfortunately I always seem to give the name to a character I don't end up playing much, and then I am stuck with something stupid like Purplecheese.
Alt Focus: For a long time, I couldn't think of what I wanted as my avatar so I left it blank. I have a big thing for purple cats, and no-one on the board had the Cheshire Cat that I saw. I did a lot of hallucinogens as a teenager, and while I'm not as crazy as he is, it felt like a good choice. I think this particular image best captures his kookiness.
*I haven't actually had a cat since I was 9. I have 2 big dogs that I adore, but I still consider myself a cat person.
**In Diablo I made a warrior named Sue because my dad had told me about the song and I thought a big buff guy with a girl's name was funny. My first in character in Diablo 2 was a necromancer that I named DeadGuyNamedSue as a tribute.
Deepinit came about while my best friend and I were thinking of coming up for a name for our porn production company. He was a photographer, I had [then] enough experience with editing software. We lived in Ottawa. Had a pimpin place so we thought, "Hey, if we raised about $20,000 we can start up in porn!"
Several joints later we had come up with themes, screenplays and location scouting - essentially talking about where we would put the cameras in every room. Our motto was going to be "Go Deep or Go Home". For marketing purposes we were going to sell women's panties with that phrase on the front. As time would progress we would have t-shirts that spelled "Deep in...*pussy/shit/coin/etc* and expand the brand out.
Unfortunately, we ran out of weed and the idea died. A few days later I needed a handle for whatboyswant.com and thought "Deepinit". Ever since then I've used the handle for every message board.
When I found the RMMB I for some reason that day wanted to quit using my usual online screen name and instead wanted a new one. I just happened to be listening to Nas, which is weird I mainly listen to country, but the Line I rock Hoes-You rock Fellas from his Jay-Z dis was cool at the time so I took the I rock hoes part as for the way I did it I am horrible at capitalizing random words so I had fun capitalizing random letters.
My avatar is me, actually in the MRAP I rolled a few days before it happened, we were waiting for some engineers to blow some shit up and my gunner took my picture.
Focus: I actually have an awesome sippy cup from my youth that travels everywhere with me...and it happens to be pink.
It was sitting next to me the say I registered. I'm so creative.
I'm not creative, either. This is actually me in real life.
Iggy Pop tune.
I christened myself The Dynamic Hispanic when I was in middle school and also referred to myself as The Mexicutioner. Later on, Manny Pacquiao began being called the Mexicutioner and I knew someone had ripped me off. Wish I woulda trademarked it.
I'm a biology graduate student, specifically evolutionary biology. Though I don't have the resources to study it in depth, human behavior from an evolutionary perspective is a passion of mine. My user name is a reference to a small movement/controversy in the scientific community to reclassify humans in the same genus as chimpanzees. No, I don't have an opinion on the issue, I just like the name.
The greatest character from the greatest tv show ever, Friday Night Lights. Anyone that grew up playing high school sports -- shit, especially in Texas -- can resonate with Tim Riggins.
"For as long I've known Tim Riggins, there's only two phrases that put a smile on his face: number one, 'We goin' to State!' Number two, 'The results are in. You are not the father!'"
Mine is the title of a Matthew Good Band b-side that I really liked several years ago. Now I don't even like the band, but the name stuck for my online identity.
I'll bite...some "older" TMMB users will recognize my infamous nickname due to being called out by Tucker, anyways it's a derivative of using the first three letters in my real last name and spelling out the fourth. It was a nickname that my old summer camp roommate gave me while I was attending Culver Military Academy.
You're Rumpleminze Dambee?
Which is worse: that you kept the name after 5 years, or that I remember it? My vigorous sense of self-loathing is telling me it's the latter.
I pretty much had to keep it...if you read my post it's basically my last name. Lighten up, things and people change (and grow up)...my days of Chicago and hanging out with Tucker & crew is far, far removed.
Inspired by this Penny Arcade:
I was at the bank opening my first account ever, and the lady asked what my user name should be. I was caught of guard and said the first thing that came to my head, which was an incorrect Penny Arcade reference. So be it.
Finally a place I can clear this up-
The "delta" is not a sorority reference. I wanted something that referenced the South, and I'm from the MS Delta, so instead of going with the traditional southern belle, I became deltabelle.
Not like anyone will read this because it's at the ass end of the thread, but I'm procrastinating so whatever.
I am blonde. My club sweatshirt was yellow. My raincoat was also violently yellow. In college, i would often wear the two in combination on really gross rainy days when I didn't feel like looking cute. Spring of my junior year, I was dating (er, "dating") this tall, gawky comp sci major.
One day, I rolled into the club dining room and my small, bitter, hilarious as fuck guy friend looked up and said, "So, how's Sir Nerd-A-Lot doing?" And my roommate chimes in with, "Missing the fair Lady Tweetybird, I presume?"
I've used variations on Lady Tweetybird ever since.
And the avatar is because, hey, blonde dog in a yellow raincoat, it doesn't get much more appropriate than that!
