I think this topic was already covered once upon a time. Too lazy to look it up, as I'm sure you are. Used to convert DVDs to VCD and SVCD and up them to the scene back in the bad old days of ftp site transfers to get movies & shit; they tagged me JoeyDVDZ because my rips had menus like DVDs. Boring.
A quote by Charles Bukowski: "To say I'm a poet puts me in the company of versifiers, neontasters, fools, clods, and scoundrels masquerading as wise men." It's a made up word but in this context it seems to mean "fame whores" or people who seek the spotlight. It just sorta stuck with me ever since I first saw the quote.
The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in purest shimmering samite, held my screen name aloft from the bosom of the water to signify by divine providence... that I, Three Hole Puncher was to carry my screen name... and that is why I am your king.
