What's the story or history behind your screen names and avatars? My avatar is a symbolic representation of me, the wings are metallic. My screen name is the name of a tool song with some pretty profound lyrics:

Angels on the sideline,
Puzzled and amused.
Why did Father give these humans free will?
Now they're all confused.

Don't these talking monkeys know that
Eden has enough to go around?
Plenty in this holy garden, silly old monkeys,
Where there's one you're bound to divide it

Right in two

Angels on the sideline,
Baffled and confused.
Father blessed them all with reason.
And this is what they choose.
(and this is what they choose)

Monkey, killing monkey, killing monkey
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs,
They forge a blade,
And when there's one they're bound to divide it,

Right in two.
Right in two.

Monkey, killing monkey, killing monkey
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs,
They make a club
And beat their brother... down.
How they survived so misguided is a mystery.
Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability
to lift an eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here

Gotta divide it all right in two (x4)

They fight, till they die
Over earth, over sky
They fight, over life,
Over brawn, over air and light,
Over love, over sun. Over blood
They fight, or they die, all for what? For our rising!

Angels on the sideline again
Been too long with patience and reason
Angels on the sideline again
Wondering when this tug of war will end

Gotta divide it all right in two (x3)
Right in two

Right in two...

My name (Phasma) was chosen because it is Latin for 'phantom' or 'ghost'. My life greatly revolves around the paranormal, considering I am a psychic medium, so you could imagine how that'd fit.

My avatar was chosen, as it is the emblem of the Death card in the tarot. It's a beautifully misunderstood card that represents new beginnings, sudden change, and old doors being closed, with new ones open -- much like how I view life and its entirety.

Loves TOOL!! Proof

My name is representative of my approach on things, optimist, but not just full on oblivious to the more cynical aspects of reality. I tread cautiously with my half full glass

Avatar is a picture from home state Oregon, ahhh the coast is magnificent! I enjoy the wonders and beauty our planet offers. Nature's aesthetics are one of the perennial sources of inspiration for me.

Peace,
spec

Jude11 was a name I used when I marked the 11th year that I hadn't seen my son and St. Jude was the patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes. ... My son's name is Jude.

The wolf is because I used to raise a momma and baby wolf.

My username and my avatar basically are inspired by two of my favorite anime shows. Saya is the main character in Blood+, and the avatar is Re-L from Ergo Proxy.

Great thread, kinda fun!

Avocado Shag was the name of a band I played in; we did covers from the 70's so we named the band after ugly green carpet.

My avatar is from a day trip to Science World with my kids...they were in this dance machine that projected psychedelic images of the dancers on the screen. I thought this one looked cool so I snapped a quick pic with my cell phone. It sort of reminded me of a Scooby Doo episode or something...plus it's a sort of avocado shade of green
That's me jon the left, with my son and daughter.

I've had the username forever, and I got it when I started learning Microsoft's Visual programming languages. The miscreant part is somewhat misleading, but I use it because Christ was tried and convicted of heresy, and He has been my hero all my life. The avatar was designed by my wife and is of a texas tree that has been tweeked a little. I plan on designing another one to fit the username at some point, just haven't taken the time...

BTW, under my username the "esse quam vederi" means "to be rather than to appear", and it is our family motto; the signature "de oppresso libre" means "free the oppressed", and it is from my days with the 10th Special Forces back in the 70's and 80's.

Comes from the name of a Black Dragon in a story I wrote long time ago, probably in Junior High, the full name was Golithion Dori, and basically it's even too violent for my tastes now. I was just letting out some anger at the time, I chose it cause of that reason.

My name is based from people who believe star wars was actually real. I don't believe that though.

I don't know what possessed me to pick my screen name considering my real name is Bethany Hill.

And I picked my avatar because cheeseburgers are my favorite food.


Seriously- boring stuff. Ashley D. is my name (I guess I wasn't in a creative mood when registering lol) and I chose the heart to signify simple and pure love in my posts.

Man I'm glad you cleared that up! The first time I saw your name, I thought you might be advocating some type of Israeli space war or something! (I guess I'm dyslexic)

Nothin special bout my handle... I work for the MSM in Texas! YEEHAW!

No need to delve to much into my screen name. I'm a hopeless romantic and a David Bowie fan. Two birds, one stone and all that mess.

That's funny. I have had a lot of 'Gravy' in my life but don't remember that term.

Just...can't...remember..
