Your MGoName

Submitted by GoBlueScott on January 28th, 2010 at 12:04 PM

I can't remember this being posted, if it's ever been done, so if it somehow slipped my attention I'll apologize now. Even so, we have quite a few new peeps around here, and I am constantly wondering why you chose your MGoName.

Some, of course, are obvious.

Some are not. Like, "Brian." Always confused me.

Why did you choose yours?

I'm really hoping Misopogon answers.

Misopogon told us about the origins of his MGoName in the comments of an unrealted thread a couple months ago. I don't remember the details, but Misopogon is an essay by Julian the Apostate.

"Smarter than me" would be correct. Or you could go with "smarter than I am."

"I" is a subject pronoun. "Me" is the grammatical inflection for when the pronoun is the object being acted upon. So for this sentence, you would want to go with "me."

Either way, the intent of the statement was transmitted, communication was successful, and anyone who wants to give you shit for this can answer to I me.

And thank you.

Uh this one right here goes out
To my homie with the drink
Know what I mean

He said I write what I see
Write to make it right
Don't like where I be
I like to make it like
The sights on TV
Quite the great life
So nice and easy
See now you can still die from that
But it's better than not being alive from straps
A mead notebook and a Bic that click
When it's pushed and a wack beat
That's a track that's weak
That he got last week
'cause everybody in the stu?
Was like that's that heat
A base heavy medley with a sample from the 70s
With a screwed up hook that went
Something something something
Mother sister cousin
He couldn't think of nothing
He turns down the beat writers block impedes
Crying from the next room a baby in need
Of some pampers and some food and a place to sleep
That plus a black Cadillac on D's
Is what keep him on track to be a great MC

[Chorus (Nikki Jean) 2x:]

Reps Northside so he rocks them braids
Eleven hundred friends on his myspace page
Stack that cheese got seven hundred plays
Producer made him take it down
Said he had to pay
Open mic champ 2 weeks in a row
Ex boy with a boy flow
Glow like Leroy you should see boy go
Got a daddy serving life and a brother on The Row
Best homie in the grave
Tatted up while in the cage
Minutemaid got his momma work like a slave
Down baby momma who he really had to honor
'cause she was his biggest fan
Even let him use the Honda
Drive up to Dallas went to open up for amateurs
Let him keep her debit card
So he could put gas in it
Told her when he get on
He's gonna take her to the gallery
Buy her everything but the mannequins your dig

[Chorus (Nikki Jean) 2x]

His man called said "your time might be now"
They played your freestlye over "Wipe me down"
They played it two times
Said it might be crowned
As the best thing out the H-TOWN in a while
He picked up his son with a great big smile
Rapped every single word to the newborn child
Then he put 'em down and went back to the kitchen
Put on another beat and got back to the mission
To get his momma out the hood
Put her somewhere in the woods
Keep his lady looking good
Have her rolling like she should
Show his homies there's a way
Other than that flipping Yay
Bail his homie outta jail
Put a lawyer on his case
Throw a concert for the school
Show this that's it cool
Throw some candy on the cadi
Chuck the duece and act a fool
Man it feels good when it happens like that
Two days from going back to selling crack, yes sir

Go buy his new mixtape is to put simply.... very good lol

I own a bakery just outside of Ann Arbor. I am also soft and round in the middle and go "Ehh-heh-hee" whenever anyone pokes me in the belly with their index finger.

Blue in Yarmouth

January 28th, 2010 at 12:26 PM ^

I am from Yarmouth and I am a UM fan. The blue has a twofold meaning though. The obvious being a Blue fan and the fact that I am blue (sad) because I am so far from AA and have never got to see a game live.

When I moved down here I heard this "joke" probably 20 times:

Random Southerner: "Your not from around here, are you?"

Me: "No sir, I grew up in Detroit and just moved her from MN"

Southerner: "Do you know the difference btw.a yankee and a Damn Yankee?"

Me: "No sir"

Southerner: "a yankee is someone from up north that comes to visit. A damn yankee is someone from up north that never

My initials because I'm an editor and writer and didn't want to be one of those people who gets caught saying absurd and juvenile things on comment threads using a fake name. The absurd and juvenile things I say on comment threads are nothing to be ashamed of!

It's my aol screen name from like 10yrs ago. My name is Jeff and at the time my hockey # was 5 and my football # was 42. I was very creative when I was twelve.

On the surface, it's easy to see why I chose MH20. Some guy who has some career rushing record or something. I don't know.

Deeper down, I really don't know why I chose MH20. My usual online pseudonym is 'longview' but I guess on that fateful date of October 30th, I wasn't thinking straight? I don't know.

Zone Left

When Michigan went almost exclusively to the zone running game in 2006, my favorite play was the stretch play to the left side of the field behind a young Jake Long. It worked really well until everyone realized the run to the left and to the right were the two options on first down.

Hence, Zone Left.

I am the little voice in all of your heads that speaks up when you need it the most.

I am the twinkle in the eyes of laughing children.

I haunt the Boren family at night.

I sit at the right hand of God himself.

I am the Ghost of Bo.
