Well I am another gamer. I used to play a lot of Age of Empires II also in the 90s and my friends name was The_Bomb_13 so I thought to have mine be Atomic_Bomb but that was taken so I saw a sheep (its a food resource in the game) and immediately thought Atomic_Sheep. Some sites don't take the underscore so I use the . i.e. Atomic.Sheep on those ones.

My other main hobby is cycling. I started riding mountain bikes first so I adopted "mtnb1kr". I also road ride now. I use this one for everything. So you may see me on a cycling sight too if that interests anyone else here.

What's in a name?
I chose mine for 2 reasons... #1- I keep myself surrounded by guitars and usually have one in my hands.
and#2- Because I have a nasty explosive temper at times, and go on rampages...
ax. :twisted:

I thought I'd be really creative and use my first name and last initial.

musixbox's were designed to fufill one goal for their entire lives; to create music. all you need to do is wind them up(or in my case, inspire me), and they will play, whether anyone listens or not. i was fortunate enough to be born with the gift to create music and melody, and so i embrace it!

1. i play a multitude of instruments, and consider music to be of utmost importance in my life. so i figured what better way to represent myself?
2. i had a girlfriend once call me her musicbox, kind of a sentimental thing
(shh!!!!!! :lol: 8) )
3. i have a great facination with jazzbox style guitars, big hollowbodies. jazzbox=musicbox they hark back to a time before i was born, when things were built a differnt way then the modern equivalents(im speaking to you mesa) i love old style tube amps, old style guitars, and LOVE old cars...

I like the band Children of Bodom and before they were called Children of Bodom they were called Inearthed. I like the name "Inearthed" a lot and I just picked it to be a handle.

if anyone knows whats significant about 2600hz in relation to old
MaBell Telephones, thats where the number comes from.
(long live kaptain krunch!) it was something i was into when i was
like 16, and have kept the number as part of my handle since, and now happens to be my address (one helluva coincidence).
as far as vulture goes, i was in a quake clan when i was about 16
and we all decided to take bird names as our handles..... nuff said.
