I felt that I should make a name that would last longer. (How long do I really want "Boy" in my name?) So I dropped "Boy" leaving "Adventurer."
Taken.
Oookay. "I" am the supposed adventurer... so "IAdventurer."
Taken.
Nuts. I am the #1 Adventurer, "IAdventurer1."
Taken.
Erm... "IAdventurer01?"
Yay!

And that is how I named myself.

For me, I lacked any imagaination: Duncan is my last name and K is my first initial. Although I should have called myself DDL (my nickname), it's too late now.

Actually, that can be arranged.

Mine is my favourite character from Street Fighter (both the game + comics) and since I look a lot like Cammy, people just call me that!

Dr. Clark Savage...the grand-daddy of all pulp heroes. Man of Bronze and Adventurer Extraordinaire. I initially went by my middle name (Cain) and later by the nomenclature of Venture. I stayed away for a long time, and when I came back I re-christened myself to coincide with the new email address.

Hey Doc, good to see someone else who liked those old pulp novels. I used to know a dealer who had the entire series.

My email is DocWeeks and everyone thinks it's because I'm studying to be a doctor, so I have to explain that it's because of an old pulp character.

Brody Is Dead (isn't he?!)

Mine is BrodyIsDead cos I knew by the time Indy IV came round with Denholm Eliot now passing on, they'd have to acknowledge that Marcus Brody too had gone on to pastures new...

Oh, and also the basis of the fan fic story I won third prize for in TheRaider.net Contest back in 2005 was all built around Brody's funeral:

The first person narrative threw me at the beginning, but this is actually quite good. Kudos.

Remember the Satanic Arnie slopfest End Of Days? Daft, I know, but Gabriel Byrne's Lucifer was known simply as 'The Man', and I've always thought, Hmm, that's rather cool.

LONG LIVE THE GREATEST ADVENTURE FILM OF ALL TIME!!!! HAIL THE ONE AND TRUE KING OF THE MONSTERS!!!! ALL BOW BEFORE KONG!!!!

Make fun of me all you want, but Kong (the original and 2005 remake both) is my favorite film of all time. Peter Jackson is my idol, and Andy Serkis is the best actor that EVER lived (Better than Harrison!!! I MEAN IT!!!!). I'm a Kongaphile, and I'm proud of it, god darn it!!!!

Sharlow is a made up name, not sure where I got it from, that I use to register online when I don't want to use my real name.

The other name I use for stuff is AussieJoviMum, in tribute to my first love,Jon Bon Jovi, but it didn't seem appropriate for here somehow. lol

Hahahaha! You tell 'em.

Well... the second half of my user name should be obvious to any George Lucas aficionado... but it's really just about my obsession with Ewan McGregor's lightsaber... *cough*

More obscurely.... "nez" is short for nesmith, short for Mike Nesmith of the 1960s TV series The Monkees.

Yes, I am a sad nerdy fangirl. ... but don't even think of making fun of Nez! His mom invented liquid paper and he himself is credited with inventing MTV!

When I create a username it is my desire that it reflect something that is of importance to me, that it reflect my faith, my beliefs, my family, my favorite hero, author, book or movie.

Normally you can find me on the internet under the names: SkywalkerQuest, AllSparkKnight or AnthonyQuest. I chose the name AnthonyQuest because my middle name is Anthony and Jonny Quest is one of my favorite cartoons from the distant past and because it is also my fatherís favorite program from when he was a youth.

My name however on this board is RedeemedChild. Back when I was about 13 or 12 I came in contact with pornography and Iíve been enslaved to it ever since. Actually Iíve been trying to break free from it for a very, very long time. It almost seems as if it has been an eternity. True, it is addicting and you can judge me if you want. However, itís not like I wanted to get involved in porn. See, my father used to be a professor at a university and itís one of the most Heaven forsaken universities on all the earth. The majority of the students are as corrupt as the devil himself and that is how I came in contact with porn.

So as I said earlier, Iíve been trying to break away from it for a long time, but as is in the case of being mortal I find it hard to completely break free. Once I think Iíve outrun my past and gotten away from it thatís just when I find myself being dragged down by lust and passion again. Itís a heck of a situation to be in.

But not long ago Casting Crowns released a new song called Every Man which talks about being a sinner and finding hope in Christ. Actually they released two new songs, Every Man and East To West. When I listened to those songs on K-Love which is a radio station from out West I found peace and redemption in Jesus Christ and thus my user name RedeemedChild was born thanks to the truth of those two songs and the hidden message of all the Star Wars tales which is none other than finding Redemption. Lucas has said that The Force Unleashed will tell the story of Redemption. The padawan Maris Brood and The Secret Apprentice and his lovely pilot Juno Eclipse are supposed to find Redemption towards the end of the storyline.

Star Wars has had a major impact on my Christian life because it seems draw from the Apocolyptic pages of the Biblical book of Revelation and in which the War in Heaven between Christ and Satan rages and Iíve always sought Redemption form pornography and hope that other youth wonít get caught up in the hell that porn brings into a personís life.

No love for the 78 remake? Not even for its iconic poster art?

Thumbs down

AgentZ that is the most disgusting and horrible poster art that I've ever laid eyes on in a very long time. The 2008 King Kong is the best kong in my opinion.

Actually I found the movie Might Joe Young to be very enjoyable. It's a shame Disney won't create more Mighty Joe Young movies and it's also sad it's to costly to turn MJY into a television series.

Currently Disney Channel is one of the worst channels at the moment. All Disney has is trashy junk like Hannah Montana, Cory in the House, Thats So Raven and Kim Possible on. They need to bring back stuff like Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior, American Dragon Jake Long, Power Rangers Mystic Force, Atlantis The Lost Empire, Lilo & Stitch: The Series and it'd also be nice if Disney tried to improve their channel by airing stuff like Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender or Cartoon Network's Ben10.

Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon are far better than the Disney Channel in my opinion.

Well, I do hope you agree with what I said regarding the Disney Channel. Disney Channel has just become of a station of garbage.

For instance look at the programming they've got.

Cory In The House

Phineas and Ferb

Hannah Montana

Camp Rock

Living The Dream

Thats So Raven

As The Bell Rings

Shaun The Sheep

Life With Derek

Brandy and Mr. Whiskers

Okay, now if people don't agree that stuff is PLAIN garbage then I must declare that Doomsday is immanent. Disney at one time had some fairly good shows but they've gone insane.

Please Disney bring back stuff like Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior and American Dragon Jake Long. It's also be nice if Disney had an animated Pirates of the Caribbean show.

Well I wouldn't have anything to base my agreement on... I don't watch the Disney Channel. I used to, but I stopped after House of Mouse got cancelled. Plus they stopped playing "Disney's Halloween Treat" every year and that made me SO ANGRY because it was the exact same year that I decided I'd better go ahead and tape it so I'd have it forever.

I got my username from the fact that all my family and friends call me Hawkeye, because I watch a LOT of M*A*S*H; too much in my mother's opinion. It's also my username on Myspace.
