I can see you sitting there, lurking the place. Why not log in and post something if you're here?

man it's been like at least eight years since I stopped using Neroman, and maybe 12 since I was Nerohman, which was just a short-lived variant for AIM at the time. Weird how it stuck, like how in detroit I'm still known as Michael Bananny.

I'm definitely not a cool kid then, I didn't stick with a name until Southbird finally about 4 years ago.

Facebook disabled my account until I changed my name back to "Terry" from "Squishdiboo" because they're judgmental fascists

Hey Rob, how did you come up with Southbird anyway?

During my tenure of living with the Artist Formerly Known as Sonique, her interest had drifted away from her old SatAM kingdom and she decided to start a new one for One Piece. OP featured a fantasy animal called a "southbird" which always faces south. (Obviously silly and impractical, just meant to serve a plot point.) I was amused by them for some reason or another and wanted a username on her new forum, so I just sort of arbitrarily picked "Southbird." Then the time came to register on another forum or something, and I figured, heck, I'll just do Southbird again.

So yeah, the name just sort of stuck and has now outlasted both that One Piece website and the relationship.

I signed up for Twitter and Tumblr accounts mostly to support 3Mix's little bit of publicity, but when doing so for one of them (I forget which), "Southbird" was already taken, and among its suggested alternatives was "Captain Southbird", which made me laugh and I decided would be the full length version (and thus what I use across my bit of social media accounts and YouTube.)

Finally, the avatar. It started off fairly generically as just a southbird against a SMB3 background with a little musical note. With 3Mix done and nothing else going on with my YouTube channel, I started doing clip shows based on a streamer's popular Tomodachi Life stream. This actually took off and has gotten me a huge multiple of traffic, more than 3Mix ever did, so I figured if I was becoming something of a name, I ought to customize the avatar a little bit. Hearkening back to my SatAM fandom, I decided the southbird got roboticized, and that's where he is now.

Whoa, nice story Rob, and here I was thinking we were too old to be having any more username origin stories.

I always thought it was some connection to South Island, which I believe is where the first Sonic game takes place.

That's an interesting coincidence. Also that life took me from Minnesota to Georgia since I've had this name. Not bad for a bird looking south.

Georgia was not really a preferred location per se, but my sister teaches at Ft. Benning down here and had a kid about a couple months before I split off from "Sonique" and my job enabled me to transfer from the Minnesota location to the Georgia one, so I just took the escape route. Nothing left in Minnesota for me anyway, all my family is in the eastern side of the country. Though mostly PA, and my immediate other than my sister is still all in Pittsburgh, which I hope to return to permanently in the future. But for now the "uncle" role seems important especially in offloading a toddler from mommy once in a while.

Atlanta is probably better than the majority of the state, but that's generally true of cities over the state. Enough population to keep things interesting and all. Still, I'd rather not be in the south, but I'm supporting my sister, so ... that's life.
