I come from the age right before the internet. When I was around 10 or so, we got our first internet connection. About five to six years after that, AOL was a big deal. Instant Messenger was the key to maintaining relationships with friends and classmates, and I was starting to come into my own. To tell the truth, I was a tad jealous of other people, because it seemed that they were given cool nicknames and I had to basically rip mine off of popular franchises. I was a big superman fan and I was going to graduate in 2001, so I became superman2001. Might be able to find my old site over at Tripod.
So, when I started conversing with one of my classmates in 10th grade, I wanted something better than to be associated with the man of steel. So I adopted the name of my other obsessionat the time, Tom Green. I eventually stuck with Hardkoretom. Being a hardcore Tom Green fan, it seemed natural to adopt the word hardkore and drop the green. I changed the c in hardcore to a k because it seemed like it would be too common in the future if there were going to be any ego maniac named tom that actually thought they were indeed hardcore.
So, there you have it. I made myself hardkore, because I can. If you're wondering what my real name is, just do a simple google search. I made it no challenge to find out who I am and what city I live in.
