Well, I don't love Valiant. I don't even like comics. I don't even like any of these people.

Wait. What am I even doing here?

Welcome.

If I win an argument, it doesn't mean I'm right. It means I'm a better arguer.

Since a couple of you have asked...

Way back in the halcyon days of the Internet, (circa-1997, 1998) I was DJing and primarily focusing on spinning 80s music. There was a rare, DJ-Promo release from 1987 (on 2 one-sided vinyl records) called Master Mixes, which was entirely remixes of songs taken from Duran Duran's album Notorious...

The original album

A close-up of the Master Mixes disc label.

...as you can see, it had a track called Notoriousaurus Rex (which was, essentially, a mega-mix of several songs from the Notorious album). From this, I adopted many things. For a while, Notoriousaurus was my name online at many sites, was my eBay name and was even a part of my email address for a while, and I even wrote articles for other sites with that as my nom de plume.

The problem with this, is that no one really knows how to spell Notoriousaurus - though I would think it's obvious - and those that do, can't be bothered to type it, so I became known as Noto, by shorthand. So I adopted that. The problem with "Noto" is that it's short, and a lot of sites won't let you use a name that short, so I just became "The Noto" which is also my Xbox Live name, if anyone is interested.

So there it is, a long and terribly uninteresting story. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with Phil Noto; whom I do admire tremendously.

Interesting story. I was never a big fan of extended dance remixes, but, have always liked Duran Duran.
