Good topic!

Well, back in 2000, I had just finished reading one of my all time American classics, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. I literally had it sitting next to my ibook when I registered my Diablo online account for the first time. McMurphy was the character I had in my head, so I used it. I have used it ever since.

I don't know how I came up with the name in the first place but the first time I was asked about my name, I said that it was a mix of the *jag*ged edge of a knife (or thinking about it now, a harpoon), Dog the Bounty Hunter, Gir from Invader Zim (yet changed the i to an e) and 2525 from the song "In The Year 2525" by Zeager and Evans (Think thats right spelling) but later on I decided I like Rock Music, chose Mick Jagger. As you can see, fits the bill perfectly. Dog the Bounty Hunter inside of Mick Jagger. -Jag *Dog* ger- Yet I still use the 2525 bit but I have been going on and off of it. I have been using JagDogger2525 for about 4-5 years now and JagDogger for 3-4.

The way I see it, JagDogger is easier to remember than DoJaggerg.

I used to go by the name DarthWookie but last year when The Conduit was released on the Wii I created my online account with the name BobaFett and I registered here with the same name and fell in love.

Postby Dick Lazer » Tue May 25, 2010 4:27 am

Dick Lazer was my porn name back in the day....lol j/k.
back in the '80s hangin at the arcade is what i did. around 83 they started letting you put you full name in if you got high score. the game was vanguard i believe. Dick coming from my name Richard, and Lazer just sounded cool. now my license plate on my truck reads D LAZER, and has for years. kids call me Mr. Lazer, and many people continue to say to me, "i didnt jnow your last name was Lazer" it has also been my stage name on and off forever.

so now a lil story.. last summer driven through town, buncha people partyin in the street, im tryin to drive by, but this big ol fat dude (dru-unk) wont move outta my way, and hes callin me names, wanting to fight. now im not a person who takes much shit, im 6'4" 240 and have fought alot in my life, but this guy made Dicky look small. (bout 20 years younger too, gulp.) his friends are yellin at um, but not trying to stop him, so i put the truck in park and start to get out when this other big guy comes running out of the house yelling NOOOOOO! dont f#ck with that guy, he's Dick Lazer. (never met this guy or his buddy before, knew prolly 2 outta 40 people there) well everyone stops talkin and yelling and is staring at me. the big guy sez "thats Dick Lazer?" his buddy sez, yeah thats him, hell look at the back of his truck dumbass, id know him anywhere. so we start talking, these guys come to all our shows, prolly our biggest fans besides our familys. ended up staying at the party for an hour or so, plus So Below played a party there bout 3 weeks later. im happy to say "Tiny" stands sidestage at every show now, and i never had to fight him. never thought my nickname would ever save my life
