Its a reference to Pink Floyd's album of similar name. My avatar comes from a scene in the movie made from that album.

Good thread Andrew!

My user name is my first initial and the first part of my last name, and I was born in 1953.

Paul Berteaux 1953

peace

Mine is easy as well, John is the English translation of my real name, and 22 stands for the age I was when I first entered here.

Mine is very easy as well. I really didn't think about it when I set up my account. It is composed of my first and middle initials and my last name. I guess I was ready to stop hiding!

mine is fairly easy as well... - Jeff is my name - JT is my initials (I know... a lot of you reading this are now saying why TJ in my user name insead of JT? - it's the initials reversed which is significant to me because I feel as if I was raised the opposite of how I should have been raised)

my avatar is a pic of me about 5-6 ish - it's when things where pretty much the worst for me in regards to the S/A, M/A, and P/A

My name is Henri and I put the king there for a couple of reasons.
1. I'm a badass... Lol
2. I was at a rave once with my ex and this guy gave "King" as my " Rave name" (it didn't stick lol)
3. Idk king sounds cool.
Awesome post!!

Mine has a couple of components to it.

Atari is the me paying homage to one of my favorite childhood pastimes, my Atari 2600 game console.

I am a HUGE Rush fan. The "kid" part is a reference to both my childhood love of video games, but also my present love of the band Rush. They have a track called "The Analog Kid."

Finally, the 86 is a reference to my year of birth.


The avatar of the Pac-Man ghost makes me happy. The image makes me smile. We discuss a lot of dark stuff here on MS. I wanted something a little lighthearted. I hope it's made someone smile seeing it. smile
