What's the story behind your username?

    Drasm19, Aug 12, 2019 :
    Drasmstün was the Celtic God of invention and laziness.
    He was breathtakingly brilliant but annoyingly lazy, sort of like Loki from the Nordic pantheon. He played flute by the Meadows in the morning and commanded over the pests and rodents by the night. He was a trickster god who enjoyed pulling pranks on fellow gods and they naturally had a 'love-hate' relationship with him.

    Drasmstün was called upon by the Celts during the winter solstice to bless the harvest and make the rodents lazy, so that the winter supplies remained unaffected.

    Drasmstün was however, not one to be easily satisfied with mere offerings and wanted to punish humans for trying to use him only during Winters and forgetting him for the rest of the year.

    One winter, he ordered the rodents to swarm through the harvest of the celts, so that they would pray to him during the other months as well.

    This didn't sit well with the elder gods who punished him by sending him to the darkest depths of Ravenheim (Celtic version of hell) and sealed it with 19 magical locks.
    They cursed him and told him that none of the future generations will remember him or worship him.

    His name was erased off from all the sacred texts and it was foretold that some day in the future, someone will invoke him again, releasing him from his chains and kick-starting the Celtic version of the end of days.

    Hence my username is- Drasm19.

    I really really wish that this was the case though, but truth to be told, I made all that s*#t up.

    I was too lazy to find a username, so I swiped through my keyboard and my username was born.

    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 :)

    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.
