Mine was given to me by the ex-wife in a round about way ... she was constantly going on about me being useless http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif So when I tried to join a forum in 1992 or 93 I always used by CB Radio handle but that was already taken so tried a few variations which were also taken then had an idea ... UseLess which wasn't taken the UK bit was added to my GT due to 'UseLess' being taken and the fact that I'm in the UK.

Mine is deeply rooted within music.
I am from the "Chemical Generation" as they call it. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif
I love my trance, hard house, drum n bass, breakbeat and pretty much anything else made digitally with a fat beat.
I have been a hobbyist dj for over 10 years now as well.

Euphoric - exaggerated feeling of well-being or elation
Fusion - a kind of popular music that is a blend of two or more styles

Kinda makes alot of sense when you look at it like that but it took me ages to settle on this.
Web dictionaries are great http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

Mine is somehow rooted in some old sprite commercials.
And 13 is my lucky number.

holy **** jook, that commerical was a time warp hahah "ahh man mines busted" thanks for the nostalgia

07-30-2010, 12:06 AM
haha... I was in like 8th grade. I liked those commercials so much I wanted my email to be jooky13@yahoo.com. but it was taken. The closest I could get was jookalot13. People started shortening that to jook. From then on I have been jook13 on all forums and things like that.

When i joined XBL my first gamertag was Prospero05 after a character in The Tempest by Shakespeare.

When that yr was over, there was a trend a cpl years ago of putting bars around your tag so i was l Ender l .

Then i changed it to Ender IXI. Then i met some friends who were less skilled at Halo and my rank caused us to get matched with ppl who were above them skill wise and we lost alot so i made Ender Ixl...eye ex el. It doesn't mean anything just a way to avoid having to put numbers in my gt.

The reason it became my main trials tag is because i got a really cool Infernal Pinball replay and just started doing everything on that tag.

The reason i like ender is the classic sci-fi series:


The writer of enders game (and shadow complex) lives where i went to college. I waited on him once and saw him speak several times.

So beside being a cool name imo, there's also a literary and geographical connection.

mine is

the emcee....this is because my teenage years were in the 90's when hip hop became my every day life, I was a well known MC around all my local clubs for doing open mic freestyles about the people there and ****....it was an awesome time and I still make tunes every now and then with DJ Kryptonite who is making quite a big name for himself across the pond in NYC at the moment, although at the age of 34 I'm getting a little tired of this scene and all the ''little big men'' in it.

I chose it as a gamertag because when I got XBL hooked up was when Halo 2 came out, and everyone and their mum was calling themselves Master Chief, MC, Master Chef and variations of this. I was surprised no one had made the parody out of it so I did http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

Before I came onto Xbox I had a pc with a game called Freelancer on it, my original name was Bertsta on there as it was my nickname, after awhile I needed something new when I started joining clans so I put my tag up as Nova D Storm, originaly I put the D in there because it looked good, but then I just thought I will place it as DarkStorm to add a lil more effect.

I know it's pretty weird but meh. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif
