Few year back now I was signing up to youtube so I could start uploading my vids, when it asked me to choose or create a username. I sat there wondering what I was going to put, I had no idea something could be so hard. I didn't really want to use my real name so to be quick and not sit there for hours planning on what I could use, I had just watched the movie Once Were Warriors.
The penny dropped I could call myself Jake the Muss, nah mine name is Paul so didn't feel right so I took "The Muss". Typed it in and low and behold I couldn't have it so I added my age at the time, themuss28 and it was free so thats how it become.
Now over recent years I have added twitter again using the muss as I find its like a brand, apart from this blog which our lass thought it was good to buy one day as a present for me. Needless to say she bought paulswildcamping.com not themusswildcamping.com, never mind its the thought that counts.
So getting back to it recently and in the past I have had people getting quite upset that I would name myself after a wife beater like Jake the muss???, I like violent films, gangsta films to slasher horrors I could have chose Freddy Kruger, thing is I didn't, I like it and if you don't its easy not to follow me.
For the people that looks at my cyber name "The Muss" and see it as a brand, thanks thats all it is, nothing more nothing less, it just happens to be a made up name someone used for in the film Once were Warriors.
Peace out camping people
