Talk me down, I'm thinking of chaning my name!
I'm going to get rid of the '04' no matter what, but I was thinking maybe I should just change the whole damn thing?

I picked my name because of this Orwell quote: "During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."

Which I thought was rather fitting in 2004, with Bush stealing the election.. again and whatnot. Now I'm not so sure anymore.


I wasn't going to change it, but it seems temping right now. But then what would I change it to?
