    See ya
    So why is it "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"?

    My name is S.Cutter. I used Scutter for a while, but never really liked it, then when signing up for some other forums i came up with Scuttle, just replacing a few letters, but i've been using it everywhere now since October.

    It's probably the least offensive of my nicknames...partially came from my size (5'10"/260Lbs) and partially because of my attitude. I'm fine if you leave me alone, but if you irritate me...Must be my Viking heritage. Another Norwegian in Minnesota, go figure...

    Well....er....I got an invitation to post a reply on this forum So here goes: Apples In My Bra. What can I say about my name? Well, I wanted a fruit-metaphor to accurately describe my breasts.
    Fruit - because its edible. Its plump (normally), perky, and its juicy, sweet and healthy.
    Cherries just didn't cut it - too small for my specifics. Lemons are too tart, melons are too large and heavy and bananas or cucumbers (ohmy) are not usually found in bras....
    So I went with apples, because as the saying goes "an apple a day...(in my case) keep the men at bay"


    From Apples

    Actually, I AM a woman...
    There exists a popular notion that women with big, perky breasts (like mine) are bimbo idiots, sex symbols etc. I chose to exploit, and daresay deconstruct this notion, by doing just that - emphasizing my assests in jest.

    But, just like 8minus8 says..."agree to disagree" and there might just be more to my breasts than meats (hehe) the eye

    Then again, I never expected anyone to take me very seriously with a name like ApplesInMyBra...

    Go figure

    Trakker -
    wanted a name without any numbers or symbols, so i thought of DeathScythe, but it was allready taken. So i tried Trakker, and it worked! I really like it, but can't use it anywhere else w/out addin numbers or symbols or other letters to it. But i still love it!

    So why is it "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"?
    Well, it has got a little to do with both, but it mainly its a metaphor for a way of life<brief explanation>highlights the way in which if you follow Zen to fix your own machine(so to speak) and the similarities between teaching yourself to maintain your motorcyle, and hence the difference between the way bikers(people) maintain there bikes/self</brief description>

    Thats not really what the novel is about but its one of the central themes of the book. Worth a read.

    See ya

    ApplesinmyBra,

    Not often you see Afrikaans on the web. Moerse nice tuisblad!


    Ok, well the story behind my name is this:

    I was at school when this guy really bugging me, so one day I just went after him. The teacher tried to stop me, so I picked him up and put him out of the way, before continuing to go after the other guy. I was unstoppable - like Napalm

    Okay, you wanted a story, so here it is:
    The two words come from a freaked out series of novels by Carlos Castaneda (anthropologist/sorcerer, hmm...ok) about his explorations into the nature of reality and perception.

    The stories were set in New Mexico, starting in the late 60's, and you were encouraged to believe they were reportage but they felt like fiction...but with a few crucial kernels of truth and an atmosphere that got me dribbling for more.
    So I read all seven of them. Yeah.
    And it turns out that reality is conveniently divided into two opposite types:
    1. Tonal: Everyday mundane reality as epitomised by a job, a table, a routine etc
    2. Nagual: Everything else...

    We're talking binary Zen existentialism here!

    Now when I began doing multimedia about 5 years ago, coming over from a film/video background (okay go on, groan, you hard bitten coders you), the thing that fascinated me was the possibility of interacting physically with what you see on-screen.

    So the flat mundane reality of the screen becomes the fully multi-threaded hyper-reality of the graphical user interface.

    The Tonal becomes the Nagual.

    Hey, let's start a new religion right here!

    All donations gladly accepted.
