Write a little paragraph about your name, why you chose it, what it means to you, etc.
At the time I started livejournaling I was listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers a lot, and particularly 'Can't Stop' which is my favourite song by them.
Music the great communicator
Use two sticks to make it in the nature
I'll get you into penetration
The gender of a generation
Embarrassing eh? 'the great communicator' seemed to me an ironic kind of thing. I think 'into penetration' also means 'inter-penetration'. Later I discovered 'The Great Communicator' was a nickname used in the US for Ronald Reagan. Yipes. I didn't want to associate myself with death-squad-man so I changed it to 'The Ex-Communicator'.
What would you change your name to, if you were changing it?
There's a Howling Wolf retrospective on Radio 2 at the moment and I was remembering that when I first met H I used to wear a Mod parka, given to me by a friend who had written 'Howling Wolf' on the back in black marker pen. H's first nickname for me was 'wolf'. You will be pleased to know someone bagged that livejournal name wolf last year (amazed it was available) and this is their one and only post.
What is your favorite username? Why?
Of other people? Who can choose? Of my own user names I think I like 'Alison' the best.
