Should I do this?

I changed my name on IRC briefly to AmirTaaki and it just felt awkward and strange. I've been using genjix over 10 years now, and the name is a part of my identity. It has a rich history which I don't quite want to give up now. Like a warm blanket wrapped around me.

I don't mind my real name either. It's interesting and different. But genjix also means a lot to me as a faceless identity I grew as a person with. I kind of like to be anonymous sometimes. I will occasionally change my name on IRC and pretend not to be me or obfuscate my identity to new people. I spend a lot of time on 4chan. It has a nice concept where it is more important what you say, rather than what you do.

If there is a reason for me to switch though, then I will. It isn't a huge deal.


I've always had the desire to change my name to just my real first name--Bruno--long before that movie came out. As a kid, I wasn't to fond of it because the others kids bastardized the name. Back then, I was thinking of changing it to Frank. But later in life, I embraced the name as others expressed how different it is. When I conducted my shows in Nashville during the late 80's and early 90's, I only used Bruno, which proved productive.

As for now, I prefer to remain using Bruno as my real name on this forum, but I'm easily found in Sandwich, Illinois. If there ever comes a time that my full name needs to be made available somewhere, I will provide it to theymos, thereby having an authority know who I am. My last name is of Lithuanian origin.
