Allow me to drift a bit off the usual topics of Martial Arts and ACL reconstruction.
The nickname Hack Shaft has a cute story behind it.
Several years ago, my band was having a bit of an identity crisis; we'd left the old name behind, along with the old drummer (who absolutely insisted that HE owned the name, though we were 4-to-1 in majority against him) and needed something new to call ourselves.
So I did what any entrepreneurial punk would and hit up the Internet, looking for the perfect name. I came across a variety of random band name generators and took one for a spin.
The funniest one that popped up was Explosive Nutrition. GNC stores pop into my head every time I remember THAT one!
Hack Shaft just showed up in one list, and kinda stuck in my head. I mentioned it to my co-guitarist at the time, and his first reaction was "Ow!!!"
Anyhow, it's unique enough that I began to use it regularly for home recording and video production. Hack Shaft. I like it.
Oh, and since being called "Hack" in comments sounds a little harsh...my name is Paul.
