Why did you choose your AR handle and avatar?
It has been quite some time since this question has been asked and with all the new members and all the creative avatars I thought I would put it out there again to see what people have to say.
I will go first. Well the guy in my avatar happens to be me. So that is self explainatory. As for my User Name it was a nickname I got back playing inline hockey in the dressing room because I was dieting down for the summer and getting shredded.

For me...it's funny and original.
09-11-2003, 11:11 AM #3
The pic in my avatar Is me and the name was just a spurr of the moment thing

My avatar is a favored piece from my one of my favorite artists.
My handle is a nickname a retired friend gave me at about age 15. Don't know how he came up with it, but it stuck. Not exactly debonair, but it strangely fits.

Well I'm a Texan, and I'm big. As for my avatar, me and old Wile E. Coyote have somethings in common. Which is, we might not ever getwhat we want, we never stop trying.

Im just fuckin with ya if you cant see the sarcasm.
Sometimes its hard to distingush since you cant hear the tone in the voice or the tone in the typing.

Mine is a boat......(Contender), its the make of boat I run while I am working on the water, the Avatar sorta speaks for itself.....lol, gotta love that pig huntin man......Cntndr

The handle is what I use for most things, in the not-too-distant past, I used to be a hospital corpsman in the Navy, assigned to the Marine Corps infantry. The Marines have a nickname given to them from the germans in WWI, "Devil Dogs" (Actually, the report sent back to Berlin was that 'The gates of hell have opened, and the hounds are loose' or something to that effect, referring to the fierce hand to hand attack the Marines led in Bellau Woods, France. The name stuck.). Anyway, since they are called "Devil Dogs", the corpsmen are called "Devil Docs".
I haven't found a cool looking avatar yet, so I don't have one.
09-11-2003, 03:34 PM #12
My name and avater are pretty self- explanatory ....... im from jersey, and alyssa milano is fuckin hot!
09-11-2003, 03:40 PM #13
Juggernaut is derived from the word Jagannatha, which means lord of the world. But the standard definition is the reason I chose it; A terrible irresistible unstoppable force. Looked it up once as a kid and feel in love with the way it sounded.
As for the avatar................seemed like a good one so I just went with it.
09-11-2003, 03:40 PM #14
My name actually came from a wrestler. Johnny The Bull. He was absolutey shredded at one point. I mean this dudes Christmas tree had striations. I loved it and his attitude was bad ass.
My buddies started calling me RoNNy The BuLL, so I stuck with it. My avatar, that's me in my gangster pose.
09-11-2003, 05:45 PM #15
Well I chose mine because I could never think of anything that isn't already taken when I try to sign up for anything from an email account to a message board. Lake Chicamahomico is where Al Bundy has vacation property, I figured no mater what I sign up for, no one will have used or know that name.
The avatar is my third, I believe, the first was a landscape of my town, the second was kanji character for money, and the current one is 'Les Amants' a painting by Rene Magritte.
09-11-2003, 05:57 PM #16
Bimbamboom, because it's my favorite past time activity, and what I study. The avatar is because I didn't grow too tall. And like most things I say, neither make sense.
09-11-2003, 06:42 PM #17
Well I figured the name would fit me. My first avatar was a pic of me. My avatar now is "in my opinion" one of the hottest women I've seen..... Stacy Keibler

Sonnie is a nick I have had since junior highschool. My avatar has the nice large rounded physique that I am aiming for (although I will be 8 times his size).
09-12-2003, 06:56 AM #21
When I first found out about this group about 3 years ago called Mudvayne that's all I would listen to. So one of my buddies would bust my balls and started calling me MudMan. I liked it so I made that my name.
The avatar is just cool and fitting for me.
09-12-2003, 10:25 AM #22
The name Xavier just came to me. I love that name. 4446 are a combination of sports # I had in high school. My avatar is Brock Lesnar, a 25 y/o manchild in the WWE.

My great grandpappy came over on the boat.
09-14-2003, 11:19 AM #24
I came up with caturpilar, because I am a deisel mechanic and caterpillars are my specialty.
My avatar, predator is one of my favs, and jesse just was a commanding monster in that flick.
09-15-2003, 01:44 AM #25
because i operate like clockwork: precise, systematic, reliable.
avatar is me, i feel i'm finally getting to a point where my physique doesn't look too "bad". note, i cruised AR for over a year with no avatar.
hopefully after i hit the juice, my physique will actually look "good"...>=)
09-15-2003, 11:43 AM #26
It's my name. There are around 500,000 chris adams in the US (2000 census). I figured it was obscure enough. The avatar is from radiohead's old website. It's called torture. I just liked it.
09-15-2003, 12:50 PM #27
Franco Columbo is my hero. Bigdaddy = im a muscel head. k= 1st letter in 1st name. De= Defensive End in HS
09-16-2003, 08:41 PM #28
born in 71' and they say I was a pretty bad child coming up...so it kinda fit. No avatar yet, haven't found what I like yet.
09-16-2003, 08:44 PM #29
I got Calipso from "Calypso" from Twisted Metal. Replace the I with a Y. Calypso is an old greek god or something. Kinda not familiar with mythology.
As for my avatar.
GENETIC PERFECTION + GENETIC FREAK = BIG POPPA PUMP! BOOYAH!

Madelyn was one of my favorite celebrities . . . got to chat with her a few times, really enjoyed watching her tear into those deserving of her wrath. Brilliant intellect, caustic temper, controlling manipulative bitch, but deep down inside she was just a vulnerable little girl. Fascinating person.
09-17-2003, 09:36 AM #33
Calipso what is wrong with Steiners chest now. It use to be fucking huge and ripped, but now it is like all fucked up when he flexed it and shit. it looks like he got in a bad ass car accident and they took out portions of his chest.
09-17-2003, 12:43 PM #34
The pic. in the avatar is me and the name since I was busy at work that day and as I work with computers all the time I just came up with it. 16 Represents the day of my birthday.
09-17-2003, 01:41 PM #35
Cfiler= I dunno, I was high at the time, and honestly don't remember.
My pic though, Hercule. A cocky fighter, who is all talk, and no action. He takes credit for other peoples success, and everyone thinks the world of him. It kind of fits.
09-17-2003, 03:26 PM #36
mfenske- m (my real name's Mark) fenske my last name.
Avatar- Special Ed from Crank Yankers. Just think he's funny. Plus I tend to be a bit of a tard sometimes. Mark

Chris Walken is probably my favorite actor, and I love "King of New York", a classic. Plus Frank was a bad MF'er in the movie.
