There was a question I’d asked in the forum which was, if you have a nickname (or your YouTube name), where did it come from?

In this vlog, you get to meet the origin of … da Weem 🙂

Mike used to be my boss a looong time ago and I used to turn up for work in a red scarf during the winter (yup, the same one that’s in my main picture). He’d already taken to calling me “Weeman” or “Weem”, but that changed to Weeman Redscarf…. which in turn became Weman Redscarf Charlie Bucket (after Charlie Bucket in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory …. because he wore a red scarf)

Occasionally it morfs to Weeman Redscarf Ya Wee Scottish Bassa ….. but usually it’s just Weem 🙂

Background Music
KoRn – Here To Stay
Slipknot – Eyeless
Sunna – Power Struggle

    I was born in Camberwell in 1986.I’m an October boy, so I’m guessing the parents did the bizzo in Camberwell in 1986 too….I don’t like my username any more. (._.)

  • SouthernFried Tom 5 years ago

    OK get a cup of tea, this is a long one.I used to be in a band loooooooooong ago when I was about 17. I played keyboards and we were a 70’s rock type ensemble, our name was Southern Dilemma. We played loads of gigs and made lots of new friends and of course, as your friend circle increases at that age the liklihood of meeting someone with the same name is greater. So yeah, my name is Tom and there was another Tom that came into our circle. His surname was Sutton, so to avoid confusion I became known as Southern Tom because of the band name. Suffice to say I had quite a reputation for being a hedonistic young chap and enjoyed alcoholic beverages, herbs and the like. So much to the point where I was often very inebriated. I don’t remember who coined the full name “Southern Fried Tom” but it stuck.And that’s how I got my name.

  • vancouveride 5 years ago

    Its great how some people add all of the ideal aftermarket stuff to a bike and then don’t put many miles on it. One can get a nice bike, ready to ride, at a nice discount to list price.

  • 848phantom 5 years ago

    I have two nicknames, the one mates call me and my interweb one.the interweb one is from my run in’s with the law when I was a young lad on the strokers and 400’s, ghostrider was just on the scene and a few friends joked I was the opposite as I kept getting caught so I got the Irish phantom, which then became phantom and of course the comic book logo…being a comic an sc-fi nerd it did fit in.the other name…..well I’ll keep that off the net haha

  • Darth Peachy 5 years ago

    Darth Peachy I setup just for youtube and it was all I was left with when the usual handles were taken. Peachy is what I’ve always been called anywhere and every where I have been. It sounds a bit gay for a bloke and wouldn’t have chosen it but with my surname being Peach it’s the best I can hope for. My channel name Peachy’s Place comes from an old friend of mine who introduced me to the internet with my own website which he called Peachy’s Place. I liked it and have used it on every forum and website I have ran since.

  • Toobi-wan Onroadi 5 years ago

    My name; A play on the relationship riders strive for between machine and road, Toobi as folk are using in comments to my vids also is a play to You’Tube’; it breaks down to TWO which is the number of wheels bikes have. I really didn’t, even though it looks it, put that much thought to it. A stroke of genius, like a lightsaber through a blast door…and I’m a sci-fi nerd that grew up and still enjoys StarWars.

  • Quentin Redbeard 5 years ago

    Haha, funny vlog mate! Quentin Redbeard came from my sometimes vlogging partner Sparky.. He used to call me both Quentin and Redbeard separately, depending on the occasion. Quentin because he thinks I’m a massive biffer 😀 and Redbeard because my facial hair is a little bit ginger.. and that’s the best I could come up with :/RSMF!

  • Beaver 314 5 years ago

    definitely a lovely bike that cb1000R 🙂 my name is a little hard to explain. Apparently when i met my ex girlfriend’s parents for the first time I was a little nervous but also a little under the weather. And her brother, who is now my best friend, later told me he originally was laughing at me because i was shaking a lot. Shaking in dutch is called “beven” and someone who shakes is a “bever” which also means beaver 🙂 so that stuck. My number also came from him, we used to call eachother pigdog (like in the monty python movie), which bastardized to p/pi = 3.14 🙂

  • wody21 5 years ago

    So this is story behind the origin of WeeemRCB … Cool one, actually I like these kinda topics! :)My nickname (wody21) came from the time when I was like 2 or 3 yrs old and I called myself ‘Wody’. My first name is ‘Zoltan’, its fondled version is ‘Zoli’ [zɔlɪ], but I couldn’t pronounce it correctly, so I said ‘Wody’ [wɔdɪ]. Later when I was ~ 10 yrs old and got into online stuffs (e-mail, playing StarCraft! 😀 etc.) where I had to choose a nickname for registration, I always used wody and later wody21. I suppose twenty-one was my favourite number and it stuck behind wody 🙂
