Aside from my little play on words, I haven't much to tell you. I got bored with NoSubstance, so I had BRiT reset my rep and change my name (which he kindly did without too much bitching).

The name comes from an old myth:

Icarus and his father were imprisoned for an eternity. Icarus' father, however, fashioned them wings from the feathers of birds. He kept the feathers together with wax, and they set out for their home land on their new wings. Flying across the ocean, Icarus' father warned him that if he flew too close to the sun, his wings would melt. But Icarus, the careless youth, did exactly that. His wings fell apart and he plunged into the ocean, drowning. It is a story of man's fall from grace, of man's triumph and failure.

I chose it for my username because it rawks.

Yes, I had been thinking of the story randomly for the past few days.

ever play quest for glory V: Dragon fire?

there's a quest where you gotta do exactly that... make wings from feathers and wax, then fly to an island. and, naturally, the sun melts the wax... but instead of drowning, you land on the island where you have to kill a three headed beast.

great fun.

Dude WTF?

What the hell is this Icarus? Jesus Christ, it's like a trend. "Dude you didn't change your name! Your not fuckin cool!"

I just wouldn't feel the same if i changed my name.

If I did change it though, what would I change it too......?

I've never played or heard of any of those games. I just like the myth.

The origin of the myth is Greek, not video-game, though. :)
