My story's the same as Lyrai's, except the game I was mashing phonemes together for was Suikoden. I was totally Kayma McDohl.

Or KcDohl!

Back when I was ten or so and first getting online I was big into Sailor Moon. Since Sailor Mars was my favourite, I decided I'd go with "Mars" as a kind of first name online. Since I also liked dragons at the time (I repeat that I was ten), I went with "Dragon" as a surname, then shoved them together with camel case for a retarded weeaboo reason. And it's been my handle online ever since.

I'm pretty embarrassed about the origins by now, and sometimes I think about changing it, but at this point it's so divorced from the original idea, I've had it for so long, and I really can't think of anything decent to change it to I'll probably keep it in perpetuity. Besides, it tends to make people think I'm a guy. That's pretty handy.

If you're thinking Killjoy is by RUSH, you're wrong. I thought that too for a while, though.

Back when I was first getting into the internet (around age.. 12?) and it's many applications, I had to enter a name to enter a chat room. I first went with Peyt, because it was a name up for interpretation and I'm a prick like that.

After about a week of people asking why I typed properly with capitals and punctuation, and because I was playing Xenogears at the time, I changed it to Wiseman, improperly thinking that because people told me I acted older than I was semi-properly typing, I had a bit of wisdom to me.

Stuck with it ever since.

In the past I've considered just dropping my handle altogether and going by my real name, but socially speaking in casual circumstances it often is preferable to use a handle, and my name is distinctive. I've also considered adopting a new handle, as my current one is silly, misleading, and arbitrary, but in other places I've made such a fuss about being consistent with one's handle that I really can only change it to something like the original. Which wouldn't solve the issue at all.

I might yet just change it anyway, now that it's been brought up. But this would be a big thing, since I've been using "Bongo Bill" since 2002.

Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin' my first bongo
Every monkey'd like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong
I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Looking for a bigger crown
So I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don't go crazy
When I'm bangin' in my boogie
I'm the "king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Hear me when I come
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
They say that I'm a clown
Making too much dirty sound
They say there is no place for little monkey in this town
Nobody'd like to be in my place instead of me
Cause nobody go crazy when I'm bangin' on my boogie
I'm the king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come
"King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Bangin' on my bongo all that swing belongs to me
I'm so happy there's nobody in my place instead of me
I'm a king without a crown hanging loose in a big town
But I'm the king of bongo baby I'm the king of bongo bong
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby, king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong

SCD is an acronym for "Something Completely Different"

When I first posted on the other place sometime back, Kazz said how he would enjoy calling me by acronym, or something to that effect.  Also something about how I screwed up my own acronym. 

Why did I use it?  Because while I was drawn to the lot of you for in-depth game analysis, image-fu and funny posts (and especially the old sharkey napkin posts on his site), I feel that I'm different, so I stuck with it.

My name is ripped from the lyrics of a They Might Be Giants song I like. I got the one I previously used all the time in a similar fashion.

Idiot.
If you're thinking Killjoy is by RUSH, you're wrong. I thought that too for a while, though.

Styx has no song named Killjoy on any of their studio albums (or live albums, if a quick search serves me right). They do, however, have an album named Kilroy Was Here, in which the song Mr Roboto has the lyrics "I am Kilroy" repeated at the tail end. That is what I thought you were referring to, and that mistake (misunderstanding the lyrics or thinking that you were somehow being witty) is why I called you an idiot.

However, even though your argument (which was incorrect by the way) shows that you and I were not thinking the same thing, you're still an idiot, none the less.

Idiot.

If any of you guys actually think I earned that because of a random song title...  :facepalm:

No, I figured it had to do with your glowing personality (which I love, by the way). I just thought he was being an idiot (either by blatant stupidity, or by dense irony).

I actually have no idea what any of these quotes are talking about. Stupid.
