Famous bands often have interesting stories behind what made them come up with their band names. In the same vein, I’ve seen many interesting/creative usernames on SS and was wondering what the thought process behind them were or events/movies/songs that inspired you to choose your username. Obviously suicide would be one such reason...

I’ll start: I was going through a hellish time and feeling incredibly ill with very high pain levels and would’ve done anything to escape the pain. My prescription painkillers weren’t working. So I was Googling different ctb methods and inevitably stumbled upon SS. I was desperate to join and couldn’t think clearly due to the pain, so I just chose a username that was the first word to pop into my head, which bizarrely happened to be the word “Pookie.” There was simply no thinking process behind it.

Now your turn. (Obviously don’t give away too many identifying/personal details as we all know this is a public forum.)

Yup, you succeeded in that. :pfff:

PS: Some people here get angry/offended when people make the odd joke or are funny on a morbid “slit-your-wrists” type forum like SS, but I say to hell with them! I think it’s great that some people can still maintain their sharp wit despite their depression.

I often dealt with my depression by trying to see the absurdity of life, which in turn could make me laugh at times.

We all deal with our depression differently. Some of the most depressed people are actually the funniest people. Just look at Robin Williams…

I want to die from inert-gas asphyxiation from N2. That said I would die before Nitrogen narcosis could set in. But still it sounds cool.
Me too, but it seems so difficult to implement.

What’s the name of the band?

Would you recommend the movie?

I’m sorry you feel so hopeless and lonely :-(

Interesting meaning and I happen to like owls as well. They’re such cool birds.

The username RedundantRecord is a description of my life, a stream of recorded experiences that is all redundant because of how I have no intrinsic value in serving consumption of experiences for the sake of entertainment. I strongly think suffering matters especially because it’s meaningless punishment and that pleasure doesn’t matter because it has no purpose outside of amusement which cannot make progress against chases to satisfy and maintain needs.
Another connection to my username is pursuits of the biggest records, like the highest high scores or levels, which can’t amount to anything but competition in how big they are in themselves, rendering it redundant to me.

In the Philippine revolution, it was always started by an upset intellectual who keeps writing patriotic letters and novels that eventually lead to the revolution. I always believe that the pen is mightier than the sword.

Mine was supposed to be, toforgivelife or to forgive life, but I misspelled it.

It's a few words from an Oscar Wilde quote:

Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.​

I'm pretty sure you can change your username. Also I believe it was against the rules to make multiple accounts.

So what's the meaning behind your new username, Skronk?
Thank you for asking! skronk is a term "used to define music that is grating, dissonante, and frequently avant-garde". My favorite genres of music feature this sound, particularly one called "no-wave". Honestly I am embarrassed to be putting on display my love for this edgy music, but I can't deny what I love! Wearing my heart on my sleeve with this username

Used to play a game called MapleStory, wanted a unique username, so with that and my old text based roleplaying dragoness character, I came up with Schevanthriztha. Shortened to Schevan after a while.

The original username I wanted was too long and I kept getting an error not related to username already taken. It is a shortened variation. It's also the name of a band I used to listen to.

Can you show me some of this weird edgy avant-garde music? I probably won't like it, but I'm now curious.

I wanted the username "Already-Dead" but it was taken. I don't think the pun is clear, but it's morbidly cutesy so whatever

Pluto is Roman God of the dead and the underworld.

Also a planet (of sorts) that is cold and distant, just like me.
