    I know this was done, like, a year ago but I am constantly trying to piece togehter the reasons behind people's board names. Even the underscrolls and extra punctuation marks.

    Some names I am dying to hear the explanation for:

    El Presidente Highsteppa
    Galactic Phantom
    The Magical White Isle
    and others...

    MoFo = motherfucker. Aphrodite called me a mofo for a while (especially when I was a chickenshit at something or slow in getting ready) and I totally picked it out of my ass because I wanted something sorta masculine.
    And I made the F capitalized to be different.

  6. Gunark

    Gunark TRIBE Member

    Sunny, you call yourself a junglist, and you don't know where "Gunark" came from?

    It's from "Roughest Gunark" by Top Cat.

    The track starts off with something like this:
    "We are the roughest gunark, from out of south park, any boy test, we come something something". There is some talk later on about "poison darts" and what not. I suck at deciphering lyrics.

    Anyway I have absolutely no idea what "Gunark" or "Roughest Gunark" actually means.

    Google searches turn up nothing, except links to people's "top 10 jungle tracks" or whatever. Maybe its just a bunch of meaningless words Top Cat came up with? Or it's some obscure slang? Maybe its something stupid like "lamess retard" or "crack whore". Who knows [​IMG]

    acheron TRIBE Member

    Acheron is the name of a river in Hades and is also the name of the planet (also known as LV-426) that the spaceship is found on in the movie Alien.

    I've been using this alias since my BBS'ing days. Alien came out in '79 - I started using Acheron in 1983.

    First time I watched Alien was on Betamax while babysitting this weird kid - I was 13 and he was 7 and into sci-fi in a big way. L-o-v-e-d gross stuff like Alien. heh. I owe it all to him.

    ~dazed~ = heaven packs his crotchal region with gym socks just like his Welsh hero, Tom Jones. [​IMG]

    I'm gonna have to copy paste from an explanation I gave recently about the name, so sorry if you guys have seen this before...

    I actually got the nickname Veruca because my guy friends were complaining that I sounded like Veruca Salt from the book/movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I'm British, and apparently they think I'm good at whining when I don't get my way (just like that character). For example, if they decide to go to a certain bar, and I don't want to go and start to complain, they'll put on these brutal English accents and speak in these high-pitched "girl" voices and say "daddy, i want some chocolate" over and over again unitl I get pissed off or start to laugh. So since Veruca was taken, I picked their/my catch-phrase daddyiwantchocolate. It just so happens that its a great name to manipulate into other related variations, according to the topic at hand, the most popular one being daddyiwantcockalot.

  21. MalGlo

    MalGlo TRIBE Member

    Well about 7 years .. (maybe more) ago i worked parttime at this greek fine dinin restaurant in the kitchen... when the chef would get pissed he'd yell MALAKA!!!!!... so one day i come home from work..login to irc for the first time and whats fresh in my mind.. MALAKA [​IMG]

    so.. for about 5 years i used malaka.. (for those who know what it means in greek.. trust me.. i KNOW what it means...)

    anyway.. started partyin late '99..... come around december 99 it was obvious i was a glowstick pheen (see story of importing hundreds of $$ worth of glowsticks from the states with Laura/madnezz) [​IMG].. so.. i updated my nick to represent that..

    And MalGlo was born.. and hence.. the world will never be the same again [​IMG]

    Sometimes i like to go by Wheatking on irc though... a nick i always wanted to use... from the Tragically Hip track.

    thats my story, and i'm stickin to it.

    That's funny. Me & my friends used to go around saying Malaka all the time in high school, instead of cursing. We never even knew what it meant.

    mutslaster TRIBE Member

    because "slutmaster" wasn't enough, i had to go and try and be clever and spoonerize it, hence
    slut - sl + m = mut
    master - m + sl = slaster
    (it actually came about when we were theorizing potential dj names and this, at the time, was the most amusing for some reason)
    but nobody gets it and so my attempted witticism becomes the bane of my existence.
    (ok, that's going too far)

    oh right, and slutmaster because i'm just one huge skanky slut. [​IMG]
