Well, for me, my name is Daniel, and at the time I made this account it was 2009 so I added 09 at the end cause I couldn't think of anything. I regret making it my username though, cause there's already a Daniel07 and a Daniel08, as well as many other Daniel's.
Obvious, lol... although, on a un-obvious note, it's the only place I use my real name, as it's the only place I like to discuss just how much of music nerd I am! Just one of my facets, of which my real name gets!
Mine was one I created way back in 1999 or 2000. At the time my favourite current song was Eiffel 65 'Blue' and my all time second favourite song was The Cranberries 'Zombie' so I put the two together. My all time favourite at the time was U2's Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me, which I couldn't really make into a workable username.
Mine was really lame actually. Around 2008 I was addicted to charts (about when I found this site) and had an excel document. I made charts from whatever list of things I could find and would gradually introduce items to create a flowing chart. Quite fun actually. I had a very long chart going using every single Pokemon (there are about 500 so it went for a while), but after I ran out I just made random variations on the names to keep it coming. Jynx became Hijinx and that's it.
In my late teens I worked in a discount shop and was very clumsy, was always dropping things and breaking stock (I have lots of memorable incidents but won't go into them here hehe) Anyway I was called Mr Bean because of this. When computers came around and were being installed I needed a username to log onto the company intranet so I couldn't think of anything so I was gonna call myself Mr Bean as a joke within the company but I didn't fancy that and wanted something more appealing. So I lengthened it to Beanster but I still wasn't happy with that. So i took a few hours to write things that looked good with Beanster and some of the ones I came up with BeansterJovi, BeansterBoy and BeansterJam but i settled on BeansterBarnes because i was liking Jimmy Barnes material at that time and have stuck with it ever since

Yeah I heard 392414 likes playing pin the tail on the donkey Last edited:
LOL, I can actually rule out YMCA. I just checked my Excel spreadsheets. No song from late-1978 to mid-1994, or 2003-2008 had a chart run which started 39-24-14 in ARIA. The closest was YOUNG YEARS (Dragon) in '89 ... 39-24-21-
Oh My God this new season is the best season of Survivor I've ever seen. I'm loving Parvati and Sandra too, I used to think Russell was smart but he's just been making dumb moves. Love Colby too, Jerry is good but a bit of a sheep.
I don't watch tv either. I watch Survivor and TAR online, along with ANTM, Desperate Housewives and Lost and Heroes, but I'm quite behind on the latter.
That was it. Started my love for Parv. I eventually watched Marquesas on youtube last year, despite having known the results since 2002. I also recently rewatched some other seasons. I love it enough that it doesn't matter that I know the outcome.
No, but I regularly visit a few TV websites, and always accidentally see something. Or sometimes deliberately, but usually I don't mean to but I see a name and that's enough to spoil it. Of the final 3, I'd say there a clear cut third place, but the other two it could go either way.
Well, it might spoil the season for anyone who isn't spoiled, so I'll memo you.
@Hijinx: The first time I listened, I thought I caught "aboard this train". But I know now that's not it. "Come apart this way" is what I've got, but I have no clue at all. If someone said to you "Gotta have my bowl", how would you interpret that?
If I'm in a position where I'll skip songs I don't feel like hearing, I like to know ahead of time so that I can prepare the skip. If I'm just gonna listen straight through, I prefer the surprise. If you were the girl on Rebecca Black's left, would you be mad at the one on her right being singled out as her sole friend?
It's because she decided not to have her stage name seem like that of a Swedish pop star, and instead went with the idea of it being like a Fleetwood Mac song. They sold much more than Robyn in their careers, so they're much better to try to be like. Also, she spelled it wrong, and anything incorrectly spelled is HUGE, as we know. americanized???
A little bit. Their/they're/there is not my major peeve and there weren't too many, though it was kind of difficult to read. What grade will Rebecca Black get for her essay "I Am Thursday's Child", since we know she is not a fan of Thursday?
Well, your friends plural are in the front seat, so there's no room there, and your friend is to your right, so the only logical options are the middle in the back, or the far left in the back. But I'm pretty sure all the seats are attached, and you won't be able to take them anywhere. Which seat can I taaaaake?
I alwats liked Marvin The Martian so I will say that it's mildly amusing. I'm not sure it qualifies as a joke though. It's also amusing that you've had your mousepad for that long. Why does Rebecca Black wake up with messy hair and perfect make-up?
Many or Horror is a cooler sounding title, but When We Collide makes more sense. What is involved in a Fry Day party?
Because he's a more giant douche than Shane is. And he's jealous that Henry scored the better sister. If you had to compare a character to Rebecca Black, which one would it be?
Considering that I can't remember whether Officer Riggins is the one who makes it to episode 11 or dies sooner, I'd have to go with Maggie. There's her secret Madison affair, and the sexual tension with Shane, plus her absolute stupidity. All these are fleshed out elements of her character. Then again, to be literal, I think Officer Riggins ended up with more flesh out of him than Maggie did in her neat hanging. In all seriousness, who was a more fleshed out character, Bethie or Lucy?
Monitor screen easily. It's had far less stuff touch it. Would you rather lick your mother's hand or your brother's hand?
I think two balls/one hand is more difficult, so I would say yes. Mathematical reasoning is always sound. On that note, if today it is Friday and tomorrow is Saturday, what comes afterwards?
For that one I'd have to say it's someone who would be likely to shoot themselves by accident, and for that I look at the most Bawdi member, even if they might prefer to use a Grenage. Who's our Thomas?
For sure! I think it should be worth only 2, maybe 3 at a real stretch. 4 is far too much. Why do Fat Usher and Rebecca Black never cross paths? Did they once date and it ended badly?
I vote for Decode. The Paramore song of that name is quite cool, and the word and what it means is also cool. What's the best word ending in 'ette'? Last edited:
well hello team there has been a lot of discussion here hasn't there!!! well no i am definitely male ... DEFINITELY male haha.
my name is simple, my mates called my alley in primary don't ask me why, i don't know how they got that from alexander - xander would have been a much cooler name, and i was born in 1989 pretty simple.
Nate is short for Nathan everyone calls me Nate... Boi is because i am male, spelling i have no idea why i used i? I am 24 nearly 25 and live near 392414 and someone else i have forgotten they were from eastern Melbourne...?
Antonalan: Nope, I'm like 6 Years older then you are.
I Have used 3 UserNames on this Website (2 of which I was Guest for). The 1st one was WEIGHT LIFTER but I only used it for 1 Post simply because it sucked so much. So I changed it to LIFTER100. I Was trying hard to figure out what to call myself, NEVER under any circumstances was I going use my real name because my real names sucks. So then I came up with LIFTER100, LIFTER came from the Weight Lifting that I do once every day and 100 was simply a random number I picked. When I became a Member Last Year I changed the Number to 500 and thats how my current Username was born.
Well my username is very interesting!!! When I first started posting I used the guest name James and when I became a member changed it to JMcN which stands for James McNeil. Now you would think that this would be my real name but no! It's actually my pretend name that I use and have used it for about 15 years!!! It came from (sadly) as a child I imagined I hosted a Music TV show called Party Time (later PT)- originally I was the host (as my real name) but then my real self left and the hosting job was taken over by James McNeil. The name has just stuck for use whenever I want to not use my real name. By the way way this has just proven to me what a sad childhood I must have had to put so much thought into an imaginary TV show- hopefully it's a sign of my briliance-but I doubt it!
Ha lots of interesting conversations going on here. You can see in my profile I live in Sydney (haven't always been here) and I am very much into 90s music - my high school and uni years. I am surprised most people are so young.
It's funny like some other posters, I assumed everyone here was a guy except Innocent Eyes, Patty Pop and Amerie Fan, I guessed they sounded like girly names. Bit of a stereotype really as I guess anyone can use any username online.
I thought id join in to the interesting thread created 1 day ago
Of course the first six letters of my username is my real name. For the extra 'xy' on the end of it, it happened when the username timfox was unavailable on yahoo mail many years ago, when creating my first email address.
Finally, the 236 and underscore was added into my second email address after my first account somehow had a virus or something in it (even though I never saw one). The number is my top score in Tenpin Bowling, my favourite sport.
I havent been playing in a number of years actually, its so expensive to bowl these days. But back when I did, i would say 150 is my average score lol (not a single game below 100 from memory). I got about 3 or 4 games in the 200s overall
G'day, well my name is obviously Joe. And the "album guru" bit is because i'm a musicologist and specialize on albums in contempary music (1955-now), And know a shit load about thousands of albums; like a guru.
Wow what a busy thread. And you all make me feel SOO old!
Trent - My fave pair of jeans when I was younger were the brand Trent Nathan. 74 - Well this is the year I was born. So yep, that makes me 36 so it is why I know all that stupid info from the 80's 90's.
Gotta go now and get my meds for the week Last edited:
You thought I was an old lady Brandon. Lifter is about as a manly username as you get. Over the past 2 years I have every now and again mistaken some members genders. Now, where are my teeth, I have some kniting to do. You kids have fun now, bye.
Definitely agree. I'm so childish at school. My friends sometimes call me the 'innocent one'. Lol - it's mainly because I'm the only person in my year without a sick mind - I hardly get that terminology
I assumed she meant that she shares her birthday with her cousins who are twins. Not that she is a twin with her cousin. It's the damn possessive apostrophe causing the confusion. It sould have been written as twin cousins' birthday Last edited:
no, well, i was meant to be born on the 12th but instead i was born on 23rd same as my cousin but i was born 2 hours before her, and also my sister and my twin cousin's sister were born on the same day together aswell but they are 1 hour apart, coincedence hey?? yet again soooooooooooo confusing???
To be honest Hijinx I do not know anybody personally who was born on the 9th December 1992 (of those I know birthdays of, which is quite a lot). From that month I know 1 or 2 people born on Christmas Day 1992 who I knew about 10 years ago but apart from that, all I know is this dickhead who was born on the 30th December 1992.
Interestingly enough, another person who was born on the same day in the same hospital as me happens to share the same first and middle names as me, just swapped around. I think I know someone born on Christmas Day 1992 as well.
no im not it's just that he was born 23rd july and me and cuz were too plus im actually far from 72 years old i'm 60 years younger than him i also just googled and i found these famous people that were born on 23rd July
Depending on your age you may not know some of these, but they are famous.
Monica Lewinsky, White House intern Alison Krauss, American singer and fiddler Philip Seymour Hoffman, American actor Slash, English-born guitarist (Guns N Roses) Woody Harrelson, American actor Martin Gore, English musician and songwriter (Depeche Mode) Don Imus, American talk radio host Anthony Kennedy, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Don Drysdale, baseball player Bert Convy, American game show host, actor, and singer Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia Raymond Chandler, American author
Zacco (real name Zachary) is a nickname I came up with when I was 11, and I've used it for almost every site I've signed up to. 3 became my favourite number around the same time, and I usually have one or two of them at the end of usernames. As some already know, I live in Tasmania
My username has absolutely nothing to do with the definition of the word Effluvium - in case personal hygiene judgements were being made
My username has to do with my addiction to the id Software computer game HeXen: Beyond Heretic (TM) , and my birthday is the 24th of March, and the 24th map in the game is a big sewer pit named 'Effluvium'. The '1' is there for no particular reason. Last edited:
By the way Effie, I'm a huge fan of the two games either side of Hexen: Beyond Heretic in the Heretic/Hexen game series. Heretic (very much in the same vein as my all time favourite game, Doom) and Hexen II which I felt corrected most of the faults in the first Hexen game and it used the classic Quake engine. heh
>>> alleyt1989 Member well hello team there has been a lot of discussion here hasn't there!!! well no i am definitely male ... DEFINITELY male haha. my name is simple, my mates called my alley in primary don't ask me why, i don't know how they got that from alexander - xander would have been a much cooler name, and i was born in 1989 pretty simple. >>>
I know you from the song game threads but always assumed you were a girl called Alley or Allie or Alison, sorry. You have great taste in music.
My username is from Doctor Who, the title of an episode and the name of a giant cactus. No reason for picking it other than I like the way it sounds.
