Wayyyy back in middle school a friend of mine called me 'Jessiah' (real name Jesse)

It's just kind of stuck since then, and I can't come up with a better screen name.

3/31 is my anniversary ;)

Well my name is just my real name, and since obviously someone already took that, I put the Swiss in front. Not very creative really...

Uhh...you're kidding, right?

Well I prefer analog over digital any day, I'm just a geek for stuff of the past. Do they make anything like they used to? And, obviously, my name happens to be Dave. Put a hyphen in there, and bam, there it is. Oh, Analog was also the name of a band I used to be in. When People spelled it analogue, oh how it ground my gears.

Omnicell is my general art name...

Its pronounced.. OMNACELL... Sometimes people call me OMNI for short... I haven't figured out away to get the OMNI and the Cell together to sound like OMNACELL , instead of OMNEEEEcell... Im working on it.. As I really like the name..

The name comes from the life giving batteries upon the mars rover that collected rock samples, when it was sent to that planet so many years Henthwith....

Mine was meant to have a double meaning: "Boom" being the sound a drumstick can make. But it's also a reference to the movie "Army of Darkness," in which the hero refers to his shotgun as his "boomstick." So, it's meant to express my affinity for drumming and campy humor.

I got the nickname Frost from my gaming buddies because I always used to use an Ice mage on Diablo 2 battlenet with Frost in the name, it just stuck.

I meant no harm, just tongue in cheek but did find this.


Sarcastic way of describing a person who seems to get all his or her knowledge from the Internet alone.
Joan is an interlectual---you'll always find her on the computer. I've never once seen her with a book in her hand! I do believe it is slang and not proper

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

let's face it, mr krabs is a role model. my first name, unusual, is darr. i am a viking from montana originally, probably a distant relative of thaard. my grandfather's brother had the family tree done back to the 800's...one day when i introduced myself at a large gathering, someone got the bright idea to say darrrrrrrrrr, as in arrgh matey, in his best pirate voice... and within about a second the whole room was growling it like a bunch of pirates and scallywags, really flogging it, and it's happened many times since to the point where i rarely say my name anymore but just growl some pirate thing, at which point everyone growls the pirate version of my name back at me in unison(it could be that my friends and associates don't get out that much). originally i would try to be real rude and say something in my best pirate voice, like "shiver me bunghole"-forgive me- well actually bunghole is a word for the hole in a cask of wine, so get your mind out of the gutter! but more or less, "i want me money", spoken in a good mr. krabs voice, will set the whole thing off as well as any bona fide pirate saying.

A nickname meaning 'calf face' given to me by my brother lost at 28 years. Misspelt with an extra 's' to make it unique and used in remembrance.

My name is Diego.

I love cars.
I'm in several car forums.
I own a VW Beetle.
The Beetle has a "boxer" engine (horizontally opposed cylinders).
Take the vowels to make it shorter and you have:

Doctor Benway is a mad scientist type character in various William S. Burroughs novels, although Naked Lunch is the only one I've read with the Doc. 91 is the year I was born.

Usually I don't like names with numbers in them - to me it's a sign of lack of originality because I used to see them on other sites so often (no offense to any numbered names here! :) ). When I made this account, I had a Black Sabbath song stuck in my head; the song was N.I.B. (Nativity In Black, as some people used to say it stood for. Geezer later said it reminded him of pen nibs).

Simple as that!

Mine takes it's name from a title of a song entitled 'Sleep Well' by Lydia. It's one of my favourite songs and it's drum heavy in places.

The idea came to me while listening to the song and it stuck.

Mine comes from a song by an amazing, virtually unknown band called Maudlin of the Well. The song is called Riseth He, the Numberless.

Mine is the name of my solo project that I never work on. I put a couple of embarrassing videos on YouTube so that nobody will take the name.

Zephyr was to honor my dad's project which was Zephyrhill Autoharps.

Midnite is because I am the black sheep in the fam damily.
