    I've loved the stories of William Gibson since reading a short story in the (now defunct) mag Omni . One of the main characters is called Automatic Jack. Funnily enough, Gibson is very into knives and old watches.

    Most people online call me Winter or Kage because of my name from another forum being too long to type all of it out so I figured I could just smoosh them together to get a new username to use everywhere now.

    mainly because of how hair grows out, if i let.
    I keep my hair really short now because of that.

    I changed the spelling so that it's mine now.

    We share initials :)
    Mine came from my profession ( motorcycle mechanic ) and that I've been labeled the king of the shop, although my boss should have that title since he has taught me nearly everything I know.

    I tossed armbars on a few of the Gracies one day and figured a username would be a nice way to celebrate. ;)

    Umm... Some british band. Geniuses, imo.

    I originally chose it ~14 years ago on another forum as I had forgotten my previous account/passw. Then it stuck and pretty much whenever you see this nickname, it's me. Almost everywhere.

    In spite of having been born in the late '70's, I have consistently used the word "groovy" to express satisfaction with friends and coworkers. It just comes naturally. I get some funny looks and grins from guys old enough remember it in popular usage.

    Tappity, tap, tap...

    Fear n Loathing! Always loved Hunter S Thompson's stories. Plus I tend to ramble and free associate a little bit. When I go I want to be carbonite shot from guns!

    E&J Brandy has the nickname Erk&Jerk. My initials are EJ. My coach called me Erk&Jerk in HS. While making names on websites not always I could get away with the &, so Erknjerk was born... If I get a personal license plate it'll work too.
