    I used to work in professional sales for a bank and my geographic area was Merseyside. Despite knowing my full name they used to call me and say “Alright Joey Mac la” in their mad accent. It kinda stuck in the bank. I hate the name Joey so i dropped the y and the 7 is in honour of Eric Cantona because I’m sad like that.

    Someone in my first job out of university found there was a journalist in the UK called Minty Clinch. Using this as a jumping point, we all worked to come up with our own strange aliases. Mine - Thackeray Eaglesham. From then on, all of my forum names were a variation on this.

    From this album, which I was listening to when I joined...



    In truth, I can't play guitar for crap, though I'm trying to learn.

    That’s the one where Iron Man and Captain America fall out and bring their mates along for a big scrap at the airport?

    Surely you've heard of Col. Itoris from the Battle at Big Beaver!

    Hmmm... I can’t quite put my finger on it. I know Col. Itoris should ring my bells...

    I'm sure the exploits of @Colonel_Angus with Col. Itoris have been vigorous indeed but it’ll take more than a quick tongue to spread the word far and wide.

    My current name story is boring. (I used it on another service when "fox" was taken and thought it looked kind of cute.)
