You know if you go back a few years, "Chamber Kid" would probably refer to an occupation :wink:

Chapagne - standing in line on opening night at the Chinese Theater for one of the big Star Wars reissues for three hours or so, there's that big "Cinegrill" sign at the Roosevelt Hotel just down the street. There were a bunch of names I didn't know listed who were performing in the lounge. I was reading them aloud until I got to CHA PAGNE BRUNCH.

Now, I know you see this right away, but I didn't having just read all these names I had never heard before. I started going on about what-the-heck-kind-of-name-is-Cha-Pagne-anyway (pronounced chah-PAHG-nee), until my friend pointed out that maybe, just maybe, it was CHAMPAGNE BRUNCH and maybe, just maybe, the "M" was missing? Quite a few people laughed quite hard.

I needed a new handle, since my current was a combination of two jokes with the college ex-girlfriend. Voila!

It has gotten to a point where it is an occupation because we are still working with music and we have yet to record. But that shall be soon.

SuperAction80 is from my first Selmer Paris professional sax. The sax which is 29 years old is still being used as my son's field sax for marching band and is still going strong.

danceswithwood

One day at an all age drum corps rehearsal I got a little frustrated with the choreography we were learning cuz I felt like it turned my rifle into nothing more than a prop ... so I asked out loud (very loud) when we were "gonna' spin the damn thing" cuz I felt like I was just "dancing with a piece of wood in my hand". Thanks to my humorous friends in the rifle line with me, Danceswithwood became my "indian name" for the rest of that season and it's sorta' stuck with me ever since as a reminder of good times 8-)

The Aceman - is a play on my last name, I wont bother you with the spelling of my last name but it's pronounced A/C like the abbr. for air conditioning.
Other names include:

AcesOverPacific - same idea only this relates to my living on the west coast and was also the name of a very old computer flying simulation game, that some of you may be familiar with.

War_wizard90 - I made this as my hotmail account before using your birth year as part of your username was popularized, 90 was not the year I was born, i was born in 86. 90 was just a number I chose. war wizard was from warcraft, the original warcraft if you can believe it. I played every new version of warcraft until World of Warcraft came out...I refused to pay a monthly fee...

JGfan24 - Because I'm a Jeff Gordan fan and his number is 24.

Old names include:

Goth_MV_Tenor - Because (unfortunately) I used to be goth, I went to Murrieta Valley HS and I played the tenors. duh.

I'm sure there's others but i'm done rambling.
