I Changed My Username.

Postby Methiculous » Mon Oct 28, 2013 1:46 pm

Hello,

I am the artist formerly known as Prin... er... I mean, Michael S.

I decided to change my name because I realized it's rather foolish to use your real name in full. This is public for all to read and who knows who's out there reading my stuff, not just now but even years from now. Perhaps a future employer, doing a background check, might read my stuff and think I'm a little nuts. :? Or I may run for office one day and someone might Google me to dig up some dirt. :x Or even just friends, family, or future girl friends, that I don't want to reveal personal details of a dream to. :oops:

So now I am, Methiculous.

I got that from a non-lucid dream when someone told me to create a 'mission statement' for my business. I don't have a business, but I knew what he was implying. He was encouraging me to start drawing cartoons again, something I tried a few years ago, but never had any published. I needed a name for my cartoons, to give them a definitive style and purpose, and to make it more of a business and not a hobby. To make it more serious for me and that's what he meant. I replied, "Methiculous" and it made sense at the time. I explained to him that it was a combination of METHOD and RIDICULOUS. I like to be ridiculous, but you need a method to actually get it done. There's a method to my madness!

I don't take dreams too seriously and if I ever did publish cartoons, I doubt I would use that name. But when I decided to change my name here, that came to mind almost instantly and without over-thinking it my first reactions are usually a good one.

So that's the story.
Same person. Same posts. New pen name.
I close my eyes and see what I can see, whatever it may be.
It could be the sea, or I could see a bee.
Don't you see? It doesn't matter to me. Just let it be!

I wrote a private message to Xanth, and asked for it.
