As some of you may know Shaw recently pulled the last (very likely literal) plugs on the web hosting server. is no more. Long live Git-eous Destructor.

Discovered DW's image hosting a day too late not to set up an imgur account. Overhauled the blog layout anyway.

So anyway, one major consequence of all these changes is the newfound impetus to finally getting and using a rename token and eventually (Steam and Skype notwithstanding) retiring the Vaecrius handle for good.

Which means... I have to come up with something else.

On Tumblr I've got Riotous Eater of Flesh because I was amused at how much it sounds like a awesome Killing Floor-esque zombie FPS when I encountered those words in Proverbs 23.

More recently is Matthew the Glutton, explained here.

So what I'm looking for:

- Not a made-up word that is annoyingly vaguely garden-path similar to something else totally irrelevant.
- If blatantly Christian or Biblical, then self-deprecatingly so but confessional rather than satanic.
- Ideally short and easy to type starting on the left hand on a QWERTY keyboard.
- Pronounceable (so I can remember it).
- Should not be misleading about the content of this blog. (Had a few ideas that seemed nice but this is by no means a paleontology, entomology, military history or Doom blog.)
- Must not be a meme. (Saying "must" to myself to fight a few temptations.)*

So for like both of you who might ever read this, thoughts?

*(In other news, given the informal meaning of "slay" nowadays, that quote on the upper left puts a whole new kind of pressure on me to live up to, or make a point in failing to live up to, my stated aspirations...)

I know this

if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content.
