First Names and Username Origins

How I got my screen name

I just thought people would like to know. My first name is Tony, and when I was signing up to be a member of the voting community, I was going to just use my first name. But that sounded crappy to me so I started thinking of a last name. Funnily(is that a word?) enough I was watching the movie "Scarface" when I was signing up. Al Pacino plays the main character, who happens to be name Tony Montana. So I said,"Hey, that sounds neat!" And I added montana to my screen name. Hence, tony_montana.
On a side note about the movie, if you haven't seen it, it is worth checking out. BUT I warn everyone here, that the movie is EXTREMELY violent and there are, no joke, about 103 uses of the F word in the movie(at one point, Tony said F*** four times in under three seconds.) I recommend this movie for older members only, and only for the younger viewers if they find that stuff ok.

Poster from the movie. Hey, from now on, everyone can call me either tony_montana, or Scarface!:D

I thought this would fit with the older screen name thread so I merged the two.

Cool idea for a screen name, Tony! :)

Re: First Names, and username origins

It's how network television works in the United States. We have four major networks and two minor networks, plus PBS (public TV) and a whole bunch of cable channels. The four major networks are ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX. The two minor networks are WB and UPN. Each network broadcasts is shows at a given time, Eastern time. (US is made up of four different time zones, to complicate things.) Each city (or technically, a "viewing area" (composed of about a fifty-mile (100 km) radius) has its own affiliate for each station. An affiliate is its own TV station that airs its own local news, sometimes programming of local interest, etc. During primetime (and sometimes daytime) it also airs the shows of the national network it is affiliated with.

For example, Fox 35 airs its own local news at, say, 6pm, then airs local programming (usually repeats of some old show) at 7pm, then airs nationally shown Fox shows at 8pm, then airs another local news segment at 10pm.

Hope that makes sense.

Re: First Names, and username origins

My first name is Jeff! And I have this weird habit of always writing it with an exclamation point, but you don't have to do that.

My username OSOQ stands for OFFICIAL-SEAL-OF-QUALITY. Yeah sounds screwed up. I can't even remember how I came up with it but I've used it in a few other boards. Normally my username is LIVEITUP2DMX Live-It-Up-To-The-Max so if you see that name elsewhere on the web it's probably me. All though I do use OSOQ in a few places such as here, DarrenShan.com and MAD Mumblings.

I first came up with OSOQ because I wanted to have an acronym...please don't as me why...and something that was pronouncable yet meant something. It's pronounced by me OH-SOCK, like the thing on your foot. But I've always wondered how others pronounced it. Hmm...
