This was just suggested as a Topic Of The Week on DCF, and I thought it would fit in well here too.


How did you choose the set up of your profile?  Does you Screen Name have any special meaning?  Why do you have the avatar you have?  What does the text under your avatar represent?  Why did you decide on the signature line that you have?  How does it all express you?

My screen name is CellarDweller.  I picked it because my computer, phone, TV, DVD/VCR, all my CDs and DVDs, CD player are all in the cellar of the house, so that's where I spend my nights when I'm home.

My avatar has almost always been my picture.  There were other ones, but I can't remember what they were, it was so long ago.  The pics that end up as my avatar are always taken of me at Brokie gatherings.  It's currently a zombie for Halloween, but that will change as of tomorrow.

The text under my avatar changes occasionally, depending on my mood.  I believe the text I had the longest was:  "City boy's mentality with a cowboy's soul".  I have it because I believe it matches my personality.  My mentality is definitely "city".  However, I love putting on my cowboy hat and boots at a Brokie gathering and going horseback riding, hiking, and being out in nature, which is where the "cowboy's soul" comes in.  It's currently the Halloween themed "Zombies - Eat Flesh", which is a spoof of the Subway franchaise line "Subway - Eat Fresh".  Prior to that, there was a dedication to Rich that said "Heaven Has a New Angel - RIP Rich".

My signature line has changed a few different times during my time here.  My prior one is the one I've had the longest.  I do want the right to marry, and that's what the line signifies.  Currently it's a group of shadowy zombies approaching for Halloween.  As of tomorrow the marriage equality one will be back.

Never Enuff Time

My screen name, well it has a long history. Through the early years of the internet I was always some version of the Talon in Tampa. I love birds and have 6 exotics, and the birds toes are "talons" so that's how the screen name got started. The Talon or version of it was also my stage name when I helped a local Dominatrix in her Tampa Dungeon. During the same time period I wrote a variety of stories and local columns on a BBS (remember those), in Tampa called "The Castle Noir". That is where I developed the signature usually seen at the end of my posts, i.e. TampaTalon ^">. The little insignia seen after is supposed to represent a bird, wing, eyes and beak. Birds always represented some kind of freedom for me so that's how my handle developed. Not at all ironic my favorite birds are parrots, sort of the clowns of the bird world, I love comedy. I was always a free spirited soul with dark irreverent humor so every thing fell into place and then Brokeback came along. Somehow the spirit of the movie seemed so free to me on those camping trips unlike real life. Also for years I carried many dark secrets, sorta like Ennis and I related to the comedy of Jack. Alas as I get older I realized the "never is enuff time" so that's how that line from the movie ended up under my avatar. As far as my signature, I relate to the song by EmmyLou Harris. The theme song just fit my life and sorta makes this tuff soul of my weak and wanna cry.

Wow! This all just poured outta me like a busted pinata!
Thanks fer asking the thoughtful question.

No big mystery to mine. My name is Jeff and I wear Wrangler jeans because Levis make my butt look saggy.  laugh

It was only after I chose the screen name that I remembered the (now late) porn star who went by the name Jack Wrangler.  Undecided

Jeff, I had always assumed  that your moniker was an hommage--  to the other Mr. Wrangler--

Screen name's my name, don't wear it out!  I got the text under my avatar from one of those foaming-at-the-mouth demonstrators who misspelled "ammo" in his Second Amendment protest, and I find that hilarious.  And my sig line is from one of my gay cowboy tales.  My av is of Hugh Jackman, who is my ideal casting for my main character.  No surprises in any of that.

"Marge Innavera" is an imaginary character on NPR's "Car Talk" show. She's on a list of "credits" at the end, all puns; Marge Innavera is the "statistician."  I've had several screen names over the years but try to pick names that can be used in a number of places.

The coyote icon refers to a spirit name I got 30 years ago.

The text under my avatar changes frequently and so does the signature.
