Again with the unoriginality. KWK are my initials, kwik got tagged on me in high school. For a while in middle school I was kwikkie, and then everyone went through puberty, and that joke took on a whole different meaning. Thankfully they also realized that there really is no way to call a 16-year old guy kwikkie without either meaning it as a comeon, or a knock, so we moved on to kwik.
I much prefer kwik to the other nickname I got tagged with in high school- sloth (I was 6-5 and was probably a good 270 in fair-to-lousy shape in high school, so that did it)
If I have to, I'll add my birth year, 1980, but here all that was needed was kwik.
For reasons of creative incompetence, this space will be left blank. Advertising opportunities are avaliable though!!! Contact (Number removed due to pending litigation) for details!

I would love to hear this story, por favor.
Alright, but don't say I didn't warn you.
My brother was a very good student, so his friends referred to him as "The Intelligent One." But that got too long to call someone all the time. So they shortened it to T.I.O, but soon realized that was STILL too long, so it became T.O. One day one guy came to the startling realization that TOAST BEGINS WITH T.O! And Toast stuck.
You can see why my brother was the brains of the group.
It's from the Peter Jackson movie Bad Taste. One of the main characters (Peter himself, actually) refers to an alien as an "astrobastard". The line made me laugh, and the removal of the 'a's gives me a PG username for boards that care about such things.
I also use astrozombie and theiam. Astrozombie is just a G variation, while theiam is part of a complete statement of divinity, "I am the I am". I tend to be fairly humble, but exercise this through hyperbolic arrogance :).
Back in the mid '90s, some dumbass was dating one of my friends. He worked at a place that forced you to have stupid nicknames, and his was "Excalibur." He was the subject of much mockery, and I adopted the persona online for a while to further the joking. But the problem was, it kind of stuck on me more than it ever did on him. So before too long, she'd broken up with him and *I'd* become "Excalibur," much to my chagrin. But it stuck as my online handle for a good long time.
When I registered for the original CRZ board, Excalibur was already taken, and the registration tool suggested I tack on the "05," so I did. Then, when things moved over here, I just reregistered under the same name. I actually really don't care for it any more, because the origin is so stupid, but I don't know that changing it would really mean anything.

The Last Starfighter. It still holds up pretty well today, except for the computer graphics, which look really dated by today's standards. Actually, I wouldn't mind either a remake or a sequel to the film.
