    Btw, I'm sorry it was never my intention. XD

    I have my Username for about 5 years, when I started playing video games on my new Xbox 360. As every Gamer you have to have a nice Gamertag/Username. My real name is Lars and I wanted to modify my alias in a way that you still can tell it's me. I really liked a swedish version of my name: Larsson. Sadly the name was already taken by another Xbox player. This is why I tried to replace the the second 's' with another letter so the whole name looks and sounds cool. I really liked the modified version with 'k' and so Larskon was born.

    Fairly simple to guess the story behind my username, but here we go:

    I have been playing guitar for quite some time now (I estimate around 12+ years but I lost count a bit). So that's where the guitar part comes from. Although it looks like the video game I actually never played Guitar Hero. Just needed some addition and I couldn't come up with anything else at the time.

    The 4 digits came from a different username that I was using for gaming and I needed something to differentiate from existing accounts so I put those after my name.

    If you're curious about the music or guitar stuff, the link should be listed in my account details on my forum profile page :)

    You never disappoint. Excellent. Btw, if the next OnePlus won't have a lightning port I ain't buying it.

    You just made all of it up in like, minutes. I envy the job you do.
    The ones who played will get it, I guess.

    Thank you Ruby!
    I just read about Ruby Kless Sondock and just the way she left a mark in the legal system, you here are breaking stereotypes. Your creativity amazes me every single time. :)

    (I started blogging in 2007 in aakarpost.com, thus aakarpost became my username everywhere.)

    Well, my nickname was born when I did my first access to the worldwideweb with a required nickname. It was in 1999 when I installed MSN messenger so I created my first account email and i i chose my nickname pirata_1985 .then is history 'cause I always use the same nickname everywhere on the web.

    Easy,My username is southaven1981, I live in Southaven, MS USA. I was born in 1981. simple enough right. I was 15 when I first started to use southaven1981 back on netscape, and prodigy I believe. I was trying to find more information about gay people and this is the screen name I used on multiple adult sites. I did eventually learn more about the choice to follow my sense of who I was attracted to however the adult sites were probably not the way to go.
