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

I guess I need to revisit this thread since I changed my username. Stasz (pronounced "stosh", rhymes with mosh) is part of my last name and is Polish for stanley. My first name is Ian but my US history teacher called me stasz so I went with it. Easier to remember than my old handle.

In Guitar Hero II, I had to make a band name so I put "tracks" (as in songs) together with "factor" (it sounds cool with anything). I had to put a little spice in it so I put two x's in it and came up with TraxxFactor. I use it for everything now i.e. usernames, xbox gamertag...

My name just rolls off the tongue.

And everyone seems to talk to me.

"Oops. I spelt that last word wrong."

Or...

"Oops, I spent too much time on Drummerworld and my lasagna burnt in the oven."

It's good. I've got pretty much world wide name recognition.

Us cymbalphiles could all be rightfully titled this. I mean how many drum guys carry hand-held scales in their pockets to the music stores or analyze Tony Williams' or Elvin Jones' snare from every aspect possible? We are the definition of obsessive fanaticism.

As to the classic, cult movie from the 1960's, I absolutely laugh until I am breathless at it every time I see it. I have witnessed two times in my life where the whole world has been gripped in total distrust and paranoia. Dr Strangelove points out the whole ridiculousness of this absurd behavior.

Mine came from a T-shirt I used to have.

The company that made the shirt went out of business, so I don't think they mind.

I love all kinds of percussion (not just kit drums)and have played in percussion groups.
But my natural tendancy at a kit is to play funk grooves - therefore Funkussionist.

I originally had the username "StickTrick" because I love sticktricks. I never ever use them live, but just love fooling around with them when watching TV. Then I got banned years ago along with some other guys... MFB got to keep his username (bastard) but I couldn't because I was too stupid to sign up with the same name again.

So now it's SickRick which is StickTrick without "T"s. The bad side about this is that everybody calls me Rick now... Didn't think that one through... :)

If I had kept my old account I'd be a Pioneer member now... damn!

I showed up at this late-night [jazz] jam session in NYC and it was great. Great players, great atmosphere, and people were there just to listen to the music and everything - I ended up playing basically the whole night because I was the "only" drummer after the house guy got done (one other dude got on the drums, and it was apparent to everyone that we needed to get him off the drums...)

I show up the next week, and this oooooooold black dude (great upright bassist) immediately says "Aaahh! The Colonel's back!" and it's been a nickname of mine since then.

That and I used it when I came back on from getting banned cuz "Erik Lund" seemed a little too sexy/pornographic for a family website.

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

well mine is pretty straight forward aswell. drummerboy is the nickname i got when my uncle (he plays bass) took me to clubs where the musicians who didnt kno my name just called me drummerboy or drummerkid (i liked drummerboy more).the 'boy' is because at that time i was what 10 or 11, so compared to the other guys who played there i was pretty young i guess lol. finally the '95' is because im born in the year 1995, so im 14.
cheers

I am and always have been a computer nerd... I have always used a computer so waaaaaaaayyyyyyyy back when i was kid... long before the internet became anything like it is today... we used to have BBSes...(bulletin board systems) that were locally run by other computer nerds with a pc in their house that people would connect to via a dial-up modem... and post on forums and play online games and share files (most of the same stuff we do now on the internet but on a much smaller scale)
anyway... back then in the year 1992-93(?)... i came up with this name and I have used it ever since.
I'm new here btw... but i think i might actually stick around (no pun intended) because I like the topic..

It's been my drumming mantra ever since I was tutored in classical percussion (timpani, tubular bells) from the age of 10. My tutor (a beautiful woman in her 70's, 1st percussionist, Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra) gave me this one piece of advise when she gave me my last lesson & brought a kit along for the very first time. I was 15. She blew me away with her power & presence on the kit. A frail elderly woman playing Bonham riffs with such power & authority. Her last statement to me was "and remember, always keep it simple".

I've played by that mantra ever since as I believe the simple approach is almost always best for the song.

Got that name from a bass player named Micki Steele back in the 80s. Cuz my name is Chris, I assume. And referring to the old breakfast cereal...
(link for you young kids) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bmIKrU2jQU

I changed the spelling and added the initial to make it the super special and awesome user name that is has since become. ;)

You should be able to see your own pic (called an "avatar"). I don't see it either, so maybe you didn't set it up correctly?

I have been looking around and trying to figure out how to do. I was hoping I could use a pic I all ready downloaded but it looks like I need to download a pic specifically for my avatar. I will try and we shall see if it works.

First, make an avatar: Take any picture, crop and size it to 100 x 100 pixels maximum. Save it as a jpeg or png file onto your desktop.

Now go the the User CP (control panel). The link is near the top left of this page, under the thread name. Then click Edit Profile Picture. Now you can use the Choose File button to locate the pic on your desktop to upload. That's it!
