    Well, you know, my father wanted to name me Sue, but mum won out in the end.

    Just my real name abbreviated quite a bit and stuck into one phrase. A lot more handy for people who don't speak Finnish but could seem strange when you assign meanings from English.

    It's the model of Chapman Stick that I've played for the past 23 years - Grand Stick, a 12-string version of the original model. Mine is made of Moses carbon graphite composite.

    Part of my first name, and I was the fourth named the same. Really took a lot of thought.;)

    Back in the wee early days of the internet and email, people would use boring things for email handles like name+dob@ or just name@ and most ended with aol dot com

    I wanted something more clever so late one night, by the warm glow of candles and a 10 " CRT monitor I combined two of my favorite songs and formed callasabra



    and

    That I'm left handed and play a Tele. I do not currently own a Tele. My username is a lie. A lie!

    "I'd, uh, also like to express my fondness for that particular beer."

    Well, bourbon in my case. I'm not affiliated with Buffalo Trace past being a customer, which from a certain perspective makes my username a terrible one (tf do they deserve me out there advertising for them?). But it's been available as a username everywhere I've tried to register it, so that's nice.

    The avatar photo is a nice pile of corned beef and a reminder to enjoy every sandwich.

    Mine is easy. My favorite country star and the year I was born. Was not very inspired when I signed up...

    I used to spend a lot of time on a site that catered to Honda Mini-Trail enthusiasts. My Honda Mini-Trail was one of the less popular colors, "Mexican Yellow." I just stuck with it...I'm American but I lived in Mexico for a few years starting when I was about 8, so I figured what the hell.
