I have a love / hate relationship with this username, but end up using it a lot because I've had it for so long.

Originally, this username was given to me by Sean Kennedy back when RantRadio was a thing that I was a part of. I'd often be in the IRC at the time because every nerdy kid circa 2000 was. At the time I had been using the username JoeNoSN (for Joe No Screen Name) which was hilariously read on the air as 'JoeNoSnot'. I could probably go back and find the exact episode that where this happened and he explained his story, but I don't really feel its worth the effort because its stupid, like '14 year old gets an internet naming baptism' stupid. There's a Bioshock Infinite joke here, but :effort:

Something about a monkey at a circus and it  being the OrganGrinder. I guess its cool, especially when you're 14 and you're looking for an internet moniker, but 12 years later its just a name with a bad backstory. As of the past 3-4 years I've been using the name ThrillhouseBRO more often. I've never been able to put creativity into a name that sticks, so I'm left with this, my oldest name.

By the way, Sean Kennedy is an insane person, whom was doing Freestyle Ranting, and at the time I thought it was helluva cool. But one look on the wikipedia page for what his most famous rant is left me with a very deep shame.

Stole mine from a Double Dragon villain I saw in a clip ad for a Double Dragon tournament fighter.  A year or two later our household got it's first PC, and my older half brother gave us Quake 1, set us up with Quakeworld and Quakespy, and told me I needed a name.  Seeing as I was thinking of a name for myself in a game where I shot people all day, it worked.  I just sorta carried it over when I started interacting with people on the rest of the internet.

Interesting note, I only own 1 firearm, and it's an old .22 rifle I inherited.  I haven't fired it since I was 13.

There's this Lego toy series called Bionicle. It had a story where the heroes are called 'Toa'.

I wrote few Bionicle fanfiction, where one of the characters are called 'Toa Nordi'.

'toanordi' becomes 'toanoradian' somehow.

A long time ago, I thought that the term 'null and void' was actually 'nil and void' because nil is another term for zero and that went along with void because I was very smart and a teenage Nihilist (all teenagers are Nihilists). I thought that the two sounded cool when stick together and so I adopted the name nilvoid, which turned out to be insanely unique because no one was and is as smart as teenage me.

Mine is from the TV Tropes episode. That kid thought he was funny because he said to "heat it with fruit power."  I was so embarrassed for him.

I needed a name for submitting the doc for the Sherlock episode, and this just seemed appropriate. I decided to stick with it when I signed up for the forum.

To be fair, that is the sort of thing Moriarty would do for shits and giggles.

And on the nerdier side of this comment, I appreciate that you used Moriarty from the Granada series as an avatar. Dude is still the undisputed champion of Holmes archnemeses.

The fact that Granada Moriarty actually matches the one in the books is one of the reasons I love that series above all other adaptations I've seen.

Right? He used to make 12-year-old me puff up in fear and indignance like a frill-neck dinosaur.

The actor in Game of Shadows was eerily close to how I pictured him when I read the stories as an adult, but he was undercut by the fact that he was in Game of Shadows. Guy Ritchie, y u do. :(

all teenagers are Nihilists
nilvoid, April 21, 2013, 06:14:03 pm

HA! I wasn't a nihilist as a teenager! I didn't have enough self-awareness to have any sort of philosophy about anything! Ostensibly I still don't. Or maybe I actually don't. Who knows? Not me obviously.

It's the best username I could have or ever will come up with.

This is just what my friends have called me for years in real life and the reason behind that is a whole bunch of stupid parallel things that all converged in one particular way, but the summary is that I'd use "fluffy" as a placeholder name for things I didn't have a name for yet (or as an adjective for pretty much everything else) and I hate my real name for various reasons (mostly gender-related), and I was visiting a friend who was all "well if you don't like being called that, what should I call you? 'fluffy?'" and it stuck.  Over the next few years I stopped using the other bunches of stupid names I was using online and transitioned everything to this one.

(I was also getting pretty tired of people - furries, mostly, but not exclusively - conflating my fictional characters with me, thus I also made the plaid-critter character to fit the name, as a sort of amalgam of a bunch of other previous characters and an externalization of internalized attributes.)
