Mine came from i song i liked called 'the Crowd' By the Cat Empire.

It goes...'I'm Just Another Clown Kicking Around in Melbourne Town, Calling Out, Relaxing, Watching The World Go Round'

I loved the song so much that i used some of the words. Even though im not from australia.

Great thread idea wink

Well, My original name was Loves the Circus, but everybody Shortened it to LTC, so I just went with it.

I don't want to have my name as just 'LTC' though, so I change it now and again, when I encounter something that fits those initials...

I was Loves the Circus, because at Uni, I was always Juggling, and my friends said that I loved the Circus. and it stuck.

MiG's been my self chosen taggy thing for...a long time now. Since i was in year 8, i reckon, and i'm now 3 years out of school, so *counts on fingers* 8 years ago. I can't remember what it stands for, or why i picked it, but i've kept it ever since.

My girlfriend and her best mate have taken to calling me 'fluffy', though. Which i like.

everyone remember pokemon? well as c**p as the show was i liked the sound of the m's in mr mime, and i also like mimes. obviously i couldnt just call myself the same this as from a show, and i found the word majestic to be really cool, for a number of reasons that i find hard to explain. hence Mr Majestic, but i think majestic with a k (majestik) looks more visually appealing so it became Mr majestik!

however, one day i called my friend james 'jmz' and he called me 'mjk' which i now use more often than Mr majestik

Title to my intro thread:

"I looked in a mirror and noticed I was infinitely twisted..."

Kinda says it all..
I go on insomnia kicks every so often and came up with the nick while pouncing around the net after about a 4 day wake stretch...

I have many names and tend to go by the moniker that any given group knows me by.. so if I ever happen to meet any of you, feel free to call me suibom or sui or art.. or whatever name you feel you can remember me by :P.. it's amusingly confusing when folks from my different social circles are in the same spot and I have different names thrown at me, puzzling everyone around me... Ahwell.. that's what you get when you don't really associate yourself with any given name.

Commercial joint-ventures.

I once mispelt it into John-Venture to the greatest amusement of the audience, and found it cool (afterward, obviously) because it sounds a bit like a sort of corporate Indiana Jones (and you don't have the occasion to travel the wild much in a corporate office).

I know, I have a lot of imagination.

hmmmm - almost self-explanatory...

My real name is "Tom" (not "Thomas") and since everyone thinks it's pretty cool to shorten their name to "Tom" people had a hard time to store my number in their cellphone... "ah, which Tom are you?"

As I was the only Tom they knew playing fire... off ya go...

But "Tom" has another meaning (to those who are not aware)... it derives from Hebrew "TeOm", meaning "Gemini", or "Innocence" - which also refers to me.. wink

I'd be interested not only why people choose their boardname, but also (just maybe to give this thread a little more twist - even though I'm SURE that there's a thread about this one already, too) rolleyes

What meaning has your Avatar (if there is any)???

Mine is a pic of me doing ropes and I use it for the internet as "my personal firewall", because people love to project all kinds of crap on someone in the internet (especially if the number of members are around 30.000 it can get "energetically swampy"... wink ) biggrin
