I like the name Wavelength, but that's because I am into science and engineering.
Genericdrummingusername is also pretty cool.

Default Re: The 'Coolest-est' Names on the Forum?

I know that my name isn't very "cool", but it still holds a symbolic description of my life for at least the next couple of years, I can foresee.

I get a certain "vibe" from different people's names, and I start to equate the effect of the pronunciation of their forum names to the kind of responses and perceived personalities that I project onto them, based on said responses. For example, Gruntersdad gives me the impression of wisdom gained from experience, Mediocrefunkybeat makes me think of a schematic of some piece of recording hardware, Mikei puts the image of a drum collector who loves to rock out in my mind, Nutha Jason makes me think of hip hop due to its ebonic spelling, etc.

Oh, and Zambizzi makes me think of what happens between periods at a hockey game. Can't shake that association for some reason...

Lol,

Vin... I'll let you respond to that..

Caddywumpus is way up there too! To me 'Caddywumpus ' is the sound you get if you tune an 18" real low and record a double hit ,and then play it back slowed down with a touch of room verb and little delay..

One way to tell if a name is "super-cool" is if you can make instantly-recognizable initials or abbreviations out of it, like MFB, LVDC, DMC or Caddy!

My name is pretty awesome.

People write comments to me all the time, even when I'm not in the thread!

"Oops, I spelt Yamaha wrong"
or
"Oops, Dave Weckl really isn't as good as Travis Barker"
or
"Oops, my wife bought me a pink T-shirt"

My brother's nickname was Oops. He was always crashing into things..

I love your example #2 ( pssst.. lets start a thread... ) "Weckl plays too many ghost notes anyway".. how many ghost notes are too many ghost notes? Now thats thats a good thread topic..

I like either Drummydude, or the Paradiddler. Caddywumpus is amusing to, though I can't fathom what it means.

Oh, and Beeche is an indirect English translation of my surname, with an e at the end of it.

When I read the definition, I just couldn't resist! I know that you have a good sense of humor so I figured that we would all have a laugh or two. I know that you will find a way to get me back. I'll be waiting and I'll be ready to laugh.

You won't know when it's coming, where it's coming from, or why it had to be so brutal, but it's coming soon. Moderators, get your trigger fingers ready...Mods, just kidding about this, by the way......ha!

I won't argue because I fear the powers you wield as a moderator... :D

Where DID your name come from, by the way?

DB I do not know about the dumbest, but as you being a moderator it always reminded me of you with that hot, sweaty, dogbreath breathing down the necks of those ding-dongs who post the dumbest things; ergo it is very befitting a MODERATOR, but use your powers as you wish.

I wondered where your forum name came from, Then I read your profile and I learned that you are a dog trainer. Do you really have Dog Breath from hanging around with dogs all day? This old saying comes to mind. "You sleep with dogs and you get fleas" I"m just wondering if it works the same with breath! I work on cars for a living and I smell like a junk yard when I come home from work!
OH NO! I feel a thread closure coming!
Now Im going to have both you and Caddy out to get revenge! Im gonna shut up now!
