Fans of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band will understand why, as a Naval Air Mechanic , (who was allways "coming to the rescue" by fixing thier motorbikes,) my friends gave me the nickname NAMBO back in the 70s

Because my mother bought my first Burberry short from a car boot sale. I don't wear it as it is too snide and Africanised

Guided By Voices is one of my favorite bands, and Mesh Gear Fox is a great song. (I also drive a stick and would like to think I'm pretty clever.) Here are the lyrics, which I can identify with.

And oh, mesh gear fox
Pull out another bag of tricks from your scientific box
Time's wasting and you're not gonna live forever
And if you do
I'll come back and marry you
No use changin' now
You couldn't anyhow or ever

It's not the way that I fear that I feel
It's the way you act
It's the way you look when you're near me
It's not so hard to conceal to conceal
It's the things you say
It's the things you do go right through me

Macbeth.. a tragic hero, driven to rack, ruin, murder, and ultimately his demise by the machinations of crazed, evil, selfish and dangerous womenfolk.

(LadyM is in the "crazed" department, fyi.)

Pugly was an old RPG character I had. The character was basically an idealized version of myself.

Full name; Pugly Wont.

Pugly itself, I believe was a sort of insult my cousins/uncle called me. It has no relation to Pugsly Adams. Or Pug dogs, don't assume that I'm a fan of pug dogs because of my username... I don't even care for dogs...

Pugs is an acceptable variant... along with Puggles.
