I like the kind of hip and weird undertone "Odd" gets in an English context, lol :).

When I lived in the US I was odd Arnie, or just Arnie. One of my friends found it so "odd" he felt he had to give me the name Todd instead. lol Pronouncing it correctly, for an American, proved to be pretty much impossible.

Haha I've had a few PM's asking me what mine is all about, so here goes:

It is a combination of some typically Scottish exclaimations of surprise.
Jings! Crivens! Help ma boab!
These are regularly strung together and appear many times in older Scottish literature and comedy, for instance, its an expression used a lot in Oor Wullie and The Broons.

Its my email address and my facebook URL also, so I have it pretty tied up!

coems from 'open tunings' on drums.
I prefer my drum tunings to sound open, resonant, and well, for me, like drums should IMO. single ply all the way!

Charli should have been Carla and then they all would have had 2 a's in their name and you could have played with that

Well hmmm.....
I like playing the drum set. haha

The drum set is my favorite instrument and my favorite number is 19. It is 19 because it took me 19 minutes to run a mile in elementary school and there was another re-occurrence of 19 on that same day. My first drum name was Drum19 which I used in the first Halo game. lol. Then it just eventually evolved into DrumSetMan19

When I was younger and I used to go dancing at a local alternative club. My nickname was Fairy. Metallica is my favourite band so...MetalFaerie. I use it for just about everything.

(Guess you can tell that I am of the feminine persuasion, IOW I am a lady drummer)

Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

My username is kinda stupid and not even related to my real name. It's sad story how I got it though. Yep, you read it right, a sad story behind choosing an username lol. I was an owner of a forum (like this one, just not drumming related) and I was hosted by my "friend", he also owned my domain. After a while I couldn't pay for 1 month because of the lack of income I had, then my "friend" sold the site to some random guy that got my ass kicked out of my own site, my own efforts etc. Then I registered to my site with another username - ageadm, which should mean AGE + ADM, where AGE stands for past/ex/former and ADM for administrator. I wanted to get to a point where I was saying, through my username, that I'm a former administrator of this board, but no one got my message lol.

It seems I never posted in this thread before, so why not.

This goes back to the days of IRC; I'm guessing around 2000. I was just chatting with some friends, and we started messing around and changing our nicks to various rude and/or funny things. At one point someone started writing their username backwards, and after a little while I turned the word Norwegian around and it became Naigewron. I can't remember if I just liked the way it read (it sort of looks like an actual word), or if the other guys started using it when addressing me, but somehow it stuck.

My name is taken from the title of a film by rebel Japanese director Takeshi Miike. I've been using it for about 10 years now. I'm a huge fan of cult, foreign, independent, horror and arthouse cinema. The movie Visitor Q is a very very dark depraved comedy, only recommended to those not easilly offended. :)

Default Re: What's the story behind your user name?

I'm not a Squadleader in the Army...

I play a really daft strategy game called Advanced Squad Leader....play most nights....have thousands of pounds worth of stuff for it....and enter all three UK tournaments each year for it (and won two of the last three which is actually no mean feat).

It's my MAJOR hobby....

It's in danger though as, having rediscovered my love for drumming about six months back, and having done one gig already which went down a storm, I'm now looking at more investment on the drumming equipment (and time) side and the only real asset I have to create money, having just exited a messy divorce, is my ASL gear.

Bit torn at the moment truth be told....love both hobbies.

Old thread, but I'm a new member.

A Ball Peen is a form of hammer (or mallet) and probably describes my playing ability.

I'm very into electronic music, especially aggressive stuff that makes use of this demon of a synth.

I come from the time when "Anonymous Choads" were frowned upon. Hence the name and title. Although I've thought strongly about changing my last name to "drums" because everyone asks me "Hey Billy Ray, what's your last name?"
