What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

"Skazat" is Russian for, "To Say". Alex is the first name of the main character in, "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess. "Nadsat" is the made-up language the characters in this novel speak. One of the words is, "skazat" - you'll see it in the text used like a English word, in the past tense: "skazated".

I am very knowledgeable on riding bikes, ultra endurance, Perl programming, and playing strange, bearded characters for commercials, movies and the random modeling gig. I have a degree and Drawing/Painting and know a little too much about a few things art-related. I play in one of those freak, crazy marching bands that tours around the country and crashes your local watering hole, when all you're trying to do is drown out your sorrows ALONE and quietly. Not gonna happen, buddy.

I really wish I could change my handle, because Alex Skazat is dead to me. Alas.
