    StenDarker : Fri 5th Jun 2009 : 13 years ago

    Sten Darker comes from a comic I tried to make all the way back in 5th grade called "Parker & Darker". It was about two best friends, stereotype idiot Ben Parker (I wasn't very creative) and stereotype boy-genious Sten Darker (I reeeeealy wasn't very creative) who comedic adventures that made little sense. Ocationally, there was even satire. XD

    It sucked. artisticly, it was circles and squares with Butch hartmen-style hair (as seen in Danny Phantom)oh, and ovals too... yeah. The comody must have been cute. I thought it was great! but, looking back, it kind of stunk. and I've never been good at characterisation either.

    Anyway, I got sick of drawing it, and all my comics dissappeared into non-existance.

    later, I discovered the internet, and made the name 224668, which came from a video game based on a kid's show where you assign numbers. (I still watch cartoons. and my real numbuh was 2283668, but I got it mixed up) and, when I realised that wasn't a very good name, I brought back Sten Darker, because I liked the name more, and I could better relate to Sten, who was the geeky one.

    This is my sole identity online, now. (I'm still not very creative)

    And now that I'm learning a manga-style of art, I plan to revamp the comic on dA.

    @stendarker, nice story. i read somewhere that as a kid, u have no problem asked to draw something, u just get to it, but when u grow and u are told to draw, u are like naaa, drawing is not my thing...
    i get me?
    the comic thing was similar to mine, but mine was something else, i just did not want to put it away, it is what i am still furthering at!!, i say bring back the comic and have fun with ur imagination!

    Randall822 : Fri 5th Jun 2009 : 13 years ago

    My name is from my AOL screename (Randall822) I received when a few other Randall names were taken when I joined up many years ago.
    So I settled on one they suggested and stuck with it.
    I use it everyplace so it is easy to find me on Facebook, Talenttrove, Acidplanet, MySpace.

    ok im an idiot... I just posted a post asking the same thing not too long ago and was wondering why no one answered. I should have looked harder in the forums but hey.

    anyway Vizun (pronounced vision) because of the bible scripture
    Psalms 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he.

    alividlife : Thu 8th Oct 2009 : 12 years ago

    alividlife is pretty self-explanatory, and I like the way it looks and sounds.

    personally, I always feel that life is a constant duality of love and hate, and everything in between, and i think it's a good way to express that.

    "a" con-notating an entity or thing
    "livid" which is livid (lvd)
    1. Discolored, as from a bruise; black-and-blue.
    2. Ashen or pallid: a face livid with shock.
    3. Extremely angry; furious.
    "life" which represents everything we perceive.

    furthermore, my music is definitely in-sync with my name and style, and I don't find it strange that the best music I have written is while I am happy and full of joy, and the crappy music happens when I feel crappy as a human being... which I have been feeling crappy lately.

    I guess it's really...
    Music is about my life, and my music is about my life...
    (plus i was in a prog-metal band called "livid" in the late 90's and 2000's.)

    cool thread, seen a couple of them throughout the years
    this one seems to be the biggest

    ChrisGoodwin : Thu 8th Oct 2009 : 12 years ago

    Hah these are are cool stories. Well my first rap name was G-Money Franchise. G-Money, meant "getting money" while Franchise was the nickname of my favorite basketball player at the time (Steve Francis). As I got older, I became a fan of darker music, so I re-dubbed myself as The Boogeyman, as homage to one of my favorite horror movies at the time. I went through another name change about a year later, dubbing myself "Phoenix", as a sign of respect to one of my favorite actors (River Phoenix) and Basketball teams (Phoenix Suns). Then about another six months or so and I decided no more gimmicks and re-dubbed myself C. Goody, which stems from my real name (Chris Goodwin).

    I was eighteen months when I bit off someones ear. My mom changed my name to NF right then, and it's been that way forever. My real name is Heewhuudayrs Wins. It's common in my part of the world.

    @ vizun....mate.
    "he that keeps the law, happy is he?"

    how about:
    Woe unto you, ye lawyers! For ye have taken away
    the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves,
    and them that were entering in, ye hindered. Luke. XI, 52.

    Why does everyone hate lawyers so much anyway? Even Luke? I'd have thought he'd need a damn good lawyer after he found out Vader was his dad.

    OneVizun : Thu 8th Oct 2009 : 12 years ago

    well, most of us use an alias to define us, or define our art. Define what moves us, what motivates us to become individuals that either want to leave a small mark or make a big change. Sure, using your real name is fine and all, but imagine if everyone decided to do that and, lets say, just use their first name. How many Micheals, Chris's, Johns, Roberts, Anthonys and Davids would you find on here.

    An alias just makes us as a people a bit more interesting and keeps the audience intrigued about us.

    I am the last of my kind. Like the Huron Indian of North America. Inbreds have a tough time with the pronunciation of my last name, so I decided to have compassion on their lack of phonetic skills and make it easier for them to pronounce and my music is an extension of the magnificence of my soul.

    I'm glad to see this one's back up again.

    I think peoples' "pen names" reveal a lot about both their aesthetics and what they want to portray. A lot of pseudonyms also speak directly to ideals vs. egos as well.

    I find that a lot of "guest's" names are really sad and make me really curious as to why they'd want to publicly beat themselves up. Is it just me, or does anyone else feel compelled to ruffle their hair a bit, pat them on the back and say, "It's OK. You're welcome here"?
