A cool nickname - Page 2

post #16 of 38
I was called "zombie" for a while back in the day because I played a zombie in a B horror film.

Oh, I thought maybe you were a chef.

PS- 'the guy' is a horrible, trying to be cool (but not) nickname- especially if you're giving it to yourself. Sorry.

Yeah, pull that stunt and you'll be called "The guy...who-gives-himself-a-nickname" Let it happen, and the name you'll get will mean something.

Hey guys-

thanks for your personal stories and suggestions about nick names. Since we don't know how the Dude received his I don't think its so wrong for me to make my own- maybe he did this also

Sometimes you can't wait for others to make your own dream come true.. i've just learned this recently.

I think i'll send an email to all my friends requesting to only call me the Guy from now ..but you can still call me Danny

The Dude was a very "go with the flow" type guy. I doubt he had the ambition to create the name for himself, nor did he posses the arrogance to demand that everyone call him "The Dude." I can see an A-type, Ivy Leaguer, doing this though.

Hey Brasky,

Maybe you don't know the Dude so well because he told Jeffrey Lebowski to call him the Dude many times..

I like to go with the flow also and even made a topic about it here

You do realize that The Dude is actually a character in a film and not a real person, right?

Well the Dude might just be a character from a film but the Guy isn't

...mr. the-guy-who-names-himself, I will just comment that while I admire your willingness and gumption to make your own dream come true, I also would say that if being called 'the guy' is your big dream, I suspect you've got bigger thing(s) in store for you and should aim higher with your dream(s).

Mine have all come from sports team participation and spread from there:

Bones - from football, still sticks, I have always been really skinny
White Shadow (later deteriorated into "Whitey") - HS basketball team nickname
Dirt - from college basketball team, as in "older than", at 23, I was three to five years older than everyone else.
Also was called Hose by a big circle of non-athlete friends in college - from a loud, complimentary reference my drunken ex-girlfriend made at a party.

Of all these, I obviously wish that "Hose" had stayed.

A teammate of mine, incidentally, had what I thought to be the coolest nickname - "The Colonel". It was an A-Team reference, his last name was "Decker".

An A-team nickname. I pity the fool.

Actually, he *is* a real person: the movie was the Coen brothers' homage to him.

Glad to hear there are more dreams in the pipeline.

As for gumption, that is NOT a reference to Forrest...
