Might as well get it out of the way early...there are always some interesting explainations.

Ok, me first. S.O.T.A. = State Of The Ark, which relects my love for playing with tube circuits and will also be the name of a small run of unique SE Class A guitar amps I have in the works. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Next???

It's a nonsensical lyric from Bush's song Greedy Fly. Sometime in the early or mid 90s I needed a screen name for chatting on an IRC channel or something, and the song was playing. I thought it was neat, and I've stuck with it ever since.

Originally, it was screamingdaisies, but I had to shorten it due to a charicter limit somewhere, and liked the shortened version better.
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.

C is the first letter of my first name, Van Sickle is my last name. It's Dutch for "seller of frozen treats from a utility vehicle."

I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passing by....

I got sick of using my normal first name initial + last name username (peckhart) that I got dubbed with at work and for some reason used on forums I joined in the last few years.

This board came up the same day I got my first Mesa Boogie, so I had a lot of Boogie on the brain. And I love the sound of slide guitar.....even though I suck at it and rarely play it myself.

Hence, boogieslide

When I was in college, I used to dowload lots of uh...."free" software.

I always registered it with Bob Barker as the name and Merv Griffen Enterprises as the company.

Well.....bob barker was already taken as a yahoo account so i used this.

......but my friends sometimes call me Skip Wankman or Senor Mouse......

My real name is Aaron.

When I was an avid 40 hr a week Quake 2 maniac in the mid 90's living in Honolulu and Going to college. I needed an online Gamers name, after rejecting the initial 5 or 6 that I came up with on my own,(they were lame), I decided I would look around the room and choose one item as the first part of a new name and one from the fridge( i lived in this puny one bedroom apt at the time). I picked up a letter and saw a postal Code of 054, and I picked mustard from the fridge. So for many online years I was known as 054 Mustard, Played interstate 76, Quake 2, Battlefield 1942 etc with this moniker.

Ive since shortened it to simply ZeroFiveFour or 054...

It's just my way of giving glory where it is due....If someone asks about it, I take the opportunity to tell them about my love for Jesus, and what He has done in my life...
