I was watching an episode of... something on tv.
And funkmaster flex came on.
And I changed the funk to a groove.
Cause that's my drumming style.
Cause Im not all that good with fills or soloing yet :)

I love the chapter title for that scene on the dvd: "Deviated Prevert"

Keenan Wynn practically stole that scene from Sellers with his totally serious portrayal (not an easything to do). To this day I don't fail to laugh hysterically every time I watch it.

MANDRAKE: Colonel. That Coca-Cola machine. Shoot the lock off. There may be enough change inside to reach the president!

BAT GUANO: (Pause) That's private property.

I tend to keep my associations down to a minimum because people have too much drama in thier lives and I simply don't want to deal with it all. On numerous occasions throughout my life I have been referred to as "that guy."

It's usually in this context....

Hey Bob (Bob's a friend of mine), who was "that guy" that I saw you with the other day?

Or..

Hey Bob, I always see you with "that guy." Who is he?


EDIT: Aydee shortened it to - Teeg

Sounds like my story. I'm also 6'6' and 220 - we'd be book ends. Funny part is that my last name is Little. I got stuck with littledenny by default. Like my younger (and heavier) brother's nickname better though. He got stuck with Thumper, after the rabbit, because of his big feet.

A song by Phish- You Enjoy Myself. I regret picking it simply because there are so many better ones that I would have picked now looking back. By the way, I don't recall why the two zeroes... I'd also like to get rid of those.

I came up with "burn the hero" when I was thinking about how it seems that all the good people in the world are the ones who are persecuted for their way of thinking, while the ignorant and mundane are praised. Heroes perish and fools prosper.

I've noticed that too. Evil people usually live long, fruitful, productive lives. There needs to be many more good ones to replace themselves.

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

Tutin is a nickname I've had since I was like four or five years old. My full name is "John Donald Alexander McLellan", but somebody I knew had an older sister who's boyfriend was called "John Tutin" who he knew as Tutin. He decided it would just be easier to call me Tutin.

Anyway, that name's stuck and I use it for just about everything now and I kind of like it.

One of my dear beloved hobbies is watches. I am a collector with about 17 pieces now. They range in value from $25 Swatch to a real deal Rolex. Nearly all professionally photographed watches have the hands set to 10:10 or Ten Past Ten. The reason is asthetics: usually leaving no details obscured, especially the make. My avatar, by the way, is a 50th Anniversary Edition Rolex Submariner. Drums and watches, two of my great loves.

cdrums21,
Thinking out of the box I see. What a great question. The little things make all the difference. I really enjoy reading and thinking about drums and many of my "friends" on DW have influenced how I feel about one of my true loves....anyway. Slingerland755, I was fortunate enough to work out a deal with my first drum idol, Barry (BB Queen) Borden (the drummer for Mother's Finest, Choice, Illusion, Molly Hatchet, and the Marshall Tucker Band). We worked out a trade back in 1985 that included my 1979 Celica Supra for "Fred Red" (his 1978 candy apple red 9 piece Slingerland set). I watched BB and Mother's Finest open up for Aerosmith back in 1979 at the Omni in Atlanta, and they blew them off the stage. Truly the definig moment when I lknew drums were for me. Funk rock at its finest. Steven Tyler and the boys were no match for the energy MF displayed that night. BB gave me $500.00 and piece of crap 1978(?)MGB and Fred Red. A far as I'm concerned, he could have given me a terd and the drums. My drums will always be classice to me. The 755 is just a baseball thing (Hammerin' Hank, homeruns and Atlanta). Although, I wish I would have made it Slingerland285, because 285 was my band's name for 13 years. OK that's enough.

A fur coat or jacket would be too hot and stinky but a boa or vest is not bad. No it's not the same fur vest or boa.

GetAgrippa! Do I need to explain. Actually it is my moniker on Wikipedia (Yep I'm an idiot). Get A Grip A-as in Art (my first name). I often have to remind myself to Get a Grip. It also refers to gripping my sticks, or stick as the case maybe. hee, hee.

Mine is pretty obvious, although it has been a long time since I walked the beat. I do however march to a different drummer today.

Almuric is the name of the planet an heroic character gets transprted to in a cool old Si-Fi book "Iron Hand", written by Robert E. Howard, the creator of "Conan the Barbarian". The character's name is Esau Cairn but who can pronounce that? Iron hand is too Kung Foo-y, but "Conan the librarian" would have been funny.

I got it from my parents. In Italian, "Fiore" means flower. "Jim" is short for "James" which is a variant of "Jacob" which means "the supplanter". So, I guess that means that I'm the guy who supplants flowers. Or maybe I'm a flower that supplants other flowers. Or maybe my parents just thought it sounded better than "Zeke Fiore". I dunno. I've been using it for almost 50 years. Works well enough.

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

Years ago I was trying to think of a username for online gaming and other internet-type things that was concise, memorable, unique, and made a statement about me as a person. And also didn't have any numbers in it.

After a lot of thinking, I somehow came up with this one.

You say the letter names of the capital letters, and pronounce the lower case letters as one bit of the word:

Pee Que Ley R = peculiar. It used to be PQleeR, which is more accurate from a pronounciation point of view, but looks a little weird, so I added in the Y to form the name I eventually used. I even had an accent over the E at one point (PQlyR), but that was too complicated.

As far as I know, I'm the only person in the world using this name. A google search returns only my forum posts, youtube channel etc.

If you want to see what's so peculiar about me, I suggest you have a look at this.

This thread is so cool! It's taught me to slow down and read the user names a little closer. Very creative and unique names out there. I suddenly feel very plain and ordinary :o(
