    where does yours come from?

    offtandiscord is the shortened version of off'tan'discord which is also the monicker i use for my solo music work.

    it comes from the combination of all 3 earthtone9 albums. off kilter enhancment, lo-definition discord and arc'tan'gent.

    they were the band that changed me.


    whats your excuse?

    alwayscrashing: from the David Bowie song 'Always Crashing in the Same Car'.

    It is about making the same mistakes over and over again despite knowing better, which is pretty much my life story so far.

    DISTORT is the working title of my comic short story anthology that came close to coming together, then unraveled. i am currently "trying" to get it back going. as such, i use joe distort for a lot of names and things of that nature. when i used to do the zine GEEK, i used the name joegeek. see the pattern? im so clever.

    George Orwell is my favorite author, has been since I read Animal Farm in 6th grade and my whole world view experienced what we'd politely call a "Shitshorm of a paradigm shift". The reason I picked up the book in the first place was author's photo on the back of the book. Staring up from a pile of library books was this.



    Something in his eyes just grabbed me. After reading his work I often think that in his short life he saw so much.There's a haunted look to his eyes. Future-shocked in a way.

    So, Orwellseyes, for the place where futureshock is meat and potatoes.

    I spent 13 years of my life with the nickname 'Mole' or variations of it. I have expunged it from the brains of all i know, with a couple of exceptions. However 'mole' is still the name I normally use online as its easier than thinking of something new.

    The 'baby' part of it comes from my friend The Howler. I don't know why he added it, but I like it, and its stuck. So together, when we're on ketamine and weaving new sagas, we're BabyMole and T'Howler....

    Nerdery abounds with mine... Name's Phillip, which I discovered idly could be written as Pi if all the letters creatively overlapped in the space of one letter. This came during the inagural year of a math/science summer camp, and my first heavy exposure to the internet. When it came time for camp to end, most of us didn't have email addresses, so we jumped onto the (pre-Microsoft) Hotmail and all came up with addresses to keep in touch. Rather than pick something sane or plain, I opted for a terrible, terrible numbers joke- instead of you eating pie, Pi ate You, and it just kind of stuck.

    My name is Drew. To the best of my knowledge, "tekende" in Dutch means "drew," as in the past tense of draw (I am an artist, so it's dually appropriate). Why Dutch? It looked cooler than most other translations of "drew" I found.

    I dread the day when someone points out that I am, in fact, terribly wrong about this translation, but perhaps it will never come. Maybe I'm right.

    My best ideas for science fiction universes are located on a forum called Omniverse Zero, which we call OZ for short. My name there is Artemis.

    howyadoin graphics is the name of my freelance company. When I signed up for my first message board (CBR), I went with that as a handle. It's almost taken on a life of its own in the years since then.

    My name is Simon; I am a man, but you only see my cybernetic words and get little human sentiment.

    Malifer is latin for "apple-bearing".

    It comes from a surreal dream I once had.

    Z is what I go by when I'm working on my storytelling project.

    It's also the first letter of my nickname in real life.

    brittanica, because when i first started dating my boyfriend, he wanted to call me a nickname (real name's brittney). my ex (who was kinda friends with the current) called me "brit", and my current boyfriend wanted to avoid that like the plague. so, brittanica.

    heil, because my great-grandparents were from germany, and i really dig the language. the other name i have floating around the internet is ichbinbrittanica. so... yeah.
