This thread absolutely rules. I've always wondered about some of them (count me in the "Thought spf2119 was a very strong sunscreen" crowd).
Rikidozan, I never knew whether your username was Japanese or if your name was "Riki Dozan!"

Dude, you made me laugh and laugh with that post, though I'm sure you didn't mean to.
When I went to Germany my senior year of high school, I was walking down the street in Heidelberg when a couple of German punk-looking guys walked by me. One looked at me, started laughing and said to his friend, "Ho ho ho...Al Boondy! Ho ho ho!"

My username came about because I used my real name on the old EZ Board. I found it boring and tried to think of a cool-sounding, wrestling-related name. Parts Unknown came to mind. That's it.

EDIT: Another reason is I use the Shockmaster as my Avatar. On the EZ Board I had a huge Shockmaster pic in my sig with the infamous phrase "YOU WANT A PIECE OF ME!?!" I always got compliments on it, so I wanted a username that would reflect a little piece of the legend himself. I figured he is most definitely from "parts unknown."

I couldn't think of a good name to use on this forum. I had just gotten around to finishing Starcraft: Brood War, and I took my name from that.

I'd change it if I could. I have considered recreating my account under a different name, since I'm so far under the radar that no one would probably notice/care. I still don't know what I would rather use, so I'll probably just leave it alone.

Y'know, I was always wondering about some people's names; what a wonder someone else wondered that, too. It's Wonderful!

My name is a marketing gimmick. Since an effective ad is one that catches people's attention, I though that the most attention-grabbing thing would be a floating, disembodied head that yelled at people.

The workable form of that was to just take a picture of me yelling and put it on a poster. I always refered to it as "the yelling, disembodied head", but one day someone asked me if I was "that screaming head guy". The nickname stuck.

Now no-one shall have any respect for me, knowing the lame truth about my name.

Ready?

Ok, back in the day, there was a guy who was dating one of my friends. He was a real dumbass, and we all pretty much hated him. His nickname was Excalibur (there's a whole backstory there too, but I'm sure you don't want to hear that). In jest, I used to use it whenever I was talking to my friends on-line. I was so petty. And the name stuck, and I used it almost everywhere I registered.

When I registered over at the old CREZboard, "Excalibur" was already taken, so I added "05", my favorite number. There you go. "Excalibur05".

When we switched over to here, I knew that I could probably be just "Excalibur", but I figured it'd be nice to keep some of the history there with the "05".

So, being petty + adding a number in order to register = Internet name.





Since everyone else is doing it (ok, not EVERYONE, but...)

Vikings (3-8) - I didn't see the game, so, uh, no comment.
Badgers (7-6) - Being from Minnesota, qualifying for a bowl, winning at home. Oh, sweet victory.

Well every year my church youth group would have an anual flag football game called the chili bowl. Me and this other guy, a FSU fan, always ragged on each other because we were the only Florida and Florida St. fans in a otherwise ALabama and Auburn dominated state. So one year we were playing in this chili bowl and I dropped a pass, and he yelled "way to go Quezzy!" Quezzy of course being the nickname of the then Florida Gator receiver Jacquez Green. Of course to him it was an insult because to him all Gators sucked. But to me it was actually a complement, so i embraced the name and wrote Quezzy on the back of my t-shirt.

Then later that year i played intramural flag football at school and wore the same t-shirt with Quezzy written on it. Then even later in the year i wrote Quezzy on the back of my basketball jersey.

So i became Quezzy to everyone, although most people mispronounce it Queasy at first. Can't anyone read!

From Bringing Out the Dead with nick cage. I don't think I've ever walked out of a movie wanting to shoot myself in the head more.

Anyhow, a druggie punkass in the movie gave his name as I.B Bangin. I liked it and translated the I.B part loosly into hebrew and wala, anibanging.

the downside is I'm occasionally mistaken for a chick named ani banging.

I'm a Bucs fan.

Though I must say, initially I meant to tell people that I was the only true Bucs fan (hence THE Bucs Fan), because most of their fans today are bandwagon fans. Ten years ago, they were a joke and had only one fan worldwide. that one fan? Me.

I also meant it to be a ripoff of thecubsfan, only switching the "c" and "b" to get my name.

Mine's from a They Might Be Giants song called, you guessed it, "Ana Ng". It's been my 'net screen name since I first got the 'net. Here are the lyrics, if you're interested:


Make a hole with a gun perpendicular
to the name of this town in a desk-top globe
Exit wound in a foreign nation
showing the home of the one this was written for
My apartment looks upside down from there
Water spirals the wrong way out the sink
And her voice is a backwards record
It's like a whirlpool, and it never ends
Ana Ng and I are getting old
and we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence
Listen Ana hear my words
They're the ones you would think I would say if there was a me for you
All alone at the '64 World's Fair
Eighty dolls yelling "Small girl after all"
Who was at the Dupont Pavilion?
Why was the bench still warm? Who had been there?
Or the time when the storm tangled up the wire
To the horn on the pole at the bus depot
And in the back of the edge of hearing
These are the words the voice was repeating:
Ana Ng and I are getting old
And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence
Listen Ana hear my words
They're the ones you would think I would say if there was a me for you
When I was driving once I saw this painted on a bridge:
"I don't want the world, I just want your half"
They don't need me here, and I know you're there
Where the world goes by like the humid air
And it sticks like a broken record
Everything sticks until it goes away
And the truth is, we don't know anything


And as far as I know, none of you have ever walked in the glow of my majestic presence.

from the Peter Jackson flick Bad Taste. It's what Derek refers to an alien as, "...my friend, the astrobastard..." I loved the way it sounded and adapted it for my online use. The first thing I registered for didn't allow swear words, so bastard became bstrd.

God, I'm pumped for December 18th (or the evening of the 17th) and Two Towers.

To be technical, that's not Sakura...that's Hinata Wakaba from the underrated Capcom arcade game Rival Schools. However, according to the backstory, she's a childhood friend of Sakura Kasugano.

I'm a fan of Buffy, and their main villain every year is given the general nickname of the Big Bad.

Plus, I'm also big and bad....well, no, that's a lie.

It's a combination of the two nicknames I've had throughout my life.

"J.T.", my first two initials, was my nickname for YEARS -- in school, and also while I was playing in Baseball and Hockey leagues.

"Dutch" comes from one of my favorite movies, "Hoodlum". One of the characters in this movie was Dutch Schultz, a 1930's Harlem-area mobster. I saw an A&E profile on the real Dutch Schultz, and he basically looks like an older version of me. My friends saw this profile and called me "Dutch" for about a year or so.

I've had this screenname since I started posting messages on the internet; it's been about four years now.



ďDonít you look at me like that, ya little bastard. You eyeballiní me? Donít you dare. I done whipped your ass once, you little sumbitch, donít think I wonít do it right here right now - BAM! You know that guy Tom Bodett, leaves the lights on for ya? Just the opposite - Iíll turn your lights out. Do you understand me? Thatís right, thatís what you call me Ďyes, sir, no sir.íĒ

ďI hate it when those guys have their little sparklers and the explosions. ... You probably liked that Angleslam, didnítya? You think he deserved that, huh? Huh LOOK AT ME HILLBILLY BOY! Youíre damn right it donít, I donít give a damn WHAT you like. Donít even look at me. No, look at me, you ainít gonna look at me when Iím talking to ya? You disrespecting me? Look at me, JR. I said look at me. Thatís right. Boy, Iíll run right over you like a speedbump. Donít get nervous. Stop sweatiní.Ē

As any fan of a dying WCW knows, my name comes from my natural ability to be up in your area.

I'm not a DJ, nor do I enjoy running. But I liked drinking Surge, kind of.

And I *have* walked in the glow of Ana Ng's majestic prescence. In college. It may have been a different Ana Ng though. And I'd had quite a lot to drink, I don't remember it that well.

This thread is great. So many questions answered..... So many laughs....



From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:

DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?

SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.

Does it remind you of any show in particular?
