Post Where does your username come from?
I am just interested and I am sure there is a thread already on this, but what the heck..

ImageImage
What got me interested was Flava'd vs. The World. Surely this is a reference to Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but where does the 'Flava'd' part come from? My guess is Flava Flav, am I right?

Anyway, Algren, quite unsurprisingly, comes from The Last Samurai. I had (and still do have) a special connection to that film. My username has been that ever since 2003.

What's your username story?

King Lear. The Earl of Kent disguises himself as "Caius" after Lear gets rid of him. Not to get revenge, but because he is so loyal and later he turns down the rule of the Kingdom.

I was a big fan of Beat the Geeks 10 years ago and I thought I'd make a good movie geek on it

Judging by that, it was going to be either MovieGeek or IWillWinBenSteinsMoney.

It is my first name. ;)

My original username (Gunslinger) was inspired by the protagonist of Stephen King's Dark Tower series.

Loved The X-Files. Still do. Though I'm not even particularly fond of the character upon which my name is based. And I also like the anonymity of a name like Mr. X.

Spelling it out as Mister Ecks was Korrgan's idea. Never changed it back.

I didn't want to go with Deep Throat. Imagine how embarrassing and humiliating a name like that could be! A name most often synonymous with giving away secrets. That kind of thing would stick with you!

New server, same X.

Because I'm a Mel Gibson fan since 1994.

Also, everyone here who doesn't know where Riggs is coming from should be banned from this forum.

I have 0 explanation. I came up with it in maybe 2003 on a different message board. I guess I came across a picture of a shack or something.
