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

I was in a play many years ago and we're performing a voodoo ritual in order to get rid of an unwanted house guest and the guy playing my roomate has the line: "Oh, by the way do we have a live goat?" So that's where my name comes from. Well, also because I have a four-chambered stomach and can digest aluminum cans and zip lock bags.

The nickname my friends from school called me was Biz, and I'm Australian. Don't know why I spelled it like Mr Osborne.

Alice In Chains has always been one of my favorite bands.

My name is Mikey.

Not Alice.

I changed it accordingly.

When I was younger, I liked heavy metal a lot. As I got older, I got more into ethnic percussion. I still like both of them so the name reflects that.

I get tired of my name, though. Is there some way to change it?

if only changing the name was an option *sigh*
HAHA! I assumed you were really into smooth jazz. My current group mainly plays smooth jazz but I am getting us more into original stuff in that genre.

My story is a lot like Zambizzi's.. I signed up for an online account years back and wanted to use my name.. (danny anderson), only it was too long. So I shortened it to danander and put a one at the end.. but that was taken.. so I added another one..

Very boring, but unique enough that I have used it for about ten years now.

Peace!

I had worked part time (not as a drummer) for singer Gene Pitney at his Connecticut Beach Club and helped him find sound companies for a tour in 1986 and early 1987. I first got online after I moved to Nashville and he was my first email contact. Gene's internet ID was "onepit" so I named myself onemat. It stuck.

Agreed, "Deathmetalconga" is probably the single, coolest nickname on the board.

Gene Pitney was one of my favorite singers from the 50's/60's era. "Looking through the eyes of love" was such a great song and the voice....well...for those of you who know who Gene Pitney is, I needn't say anymore. I think he captured the emotion of the 60's in his voice somehow and he will always be one of my all time favorite singers.

My user name is actually a question... Are you okay? Are you O.K.? R.u.o.k?

I know it's somewhat stupid, but it's all I could come up with at the time of my joining this forum.

Hands down, best story here.

Mine, I don't really remember. I've been using it as an online handle for a while at various places.

Hey Michael drums! I do quite a bit of vacationing in Ocean City Maryland. Do you play much there? I used to play there in my early rock days in the summer and had a BLAST! I think the name of the club was "Secrets". The Purple Moose, Bull on the beach, Phillips.....ahhh, some great times. I usually stay in Bethany beach when we're there. Are you close?

Well my middle name is kawika (the name I go by), so I changed the w to a v because thats how its pronounced. I wanted it to be even more different so I changed the k's to c's.

p.s. great idea for a thread, there are some really interesting stories out there. Oh and deathmetalconga, keep the name its a great one.

Hey cdrums21...Thanks for the shout out! ;-)


Yea, I've done a few gigs downtown. The bar scene mostly. And YES...Secrets is still there, aka...Jamaica USA!! The Purple Moose is still thriving on the boardwalk, though I can remember back in the 80s' when it was REALLY popular, and you couldn't even get in the place.

The Bull On The Beach has moved to West O.C. and up to 94th St. And Phillips' is still in their main building on Coastal Highway.

I have a family friend, who lives in South Bethany, that I visit once or twice a year. So I AM familiar with the whole coastal area from Assateague Island to Lewes, Del.

Peace Out! ;-)

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

well... there was a man and a woman, deeply in love. it was back in the 80's, when the hair were long on the back, and short over the forehead...
they met, they hung around a bit, then they decided to get together.
one day, a wonderful thing happened, the woman became pregnant, thanks to the man.
during the next 9 months of ups, and downs, they managed to find a name for the small guy, that was on his way out.
the man wanted the guy to be known as Iwo, but the mother wasn't so sure about it. so they've reached a compromise, results of which can be seen today. this compromise was a name - Kacper (very original at that time).
the man went to 'register' the small guy that was on his way out, as Kacper, but he found it pretty cool, to give him also the second name, so then the guy became known as Kacper Iwo...

Kacper Iwo, written together, gives kacperiwo, but the english pronounciation of the second part is wrong, so the guy came up with changing the double-u, into vee...

that guy is me, if someone couldn't catch up :P

My name partly comes from the company I run (Destination Performance) and partly because when I joined DW I was just starting out as a drummer hence Destination Drumming!

I do like the great diversity of DW names.

The Turbine Saints, I've always thought, would be a very cool name for a band. Eventually, it will come to fruition. There is more to the name, but it would be far too long to explain and probably only interesting to me.
