What does it mean?

How did you come up with it?


This has probably been asked before but I am curious and want to know.

My username is a character from a short story by H.P. Lovecraft, one of my favorite authors. In the story, an alien creature forces his consciousness out of his body and puts it in it's own. It's a reflection of how I often feel: an alien in a human body, doing my best to pretend I'm as human as I look.

A few years ago, the day before I joined this site, I was out with one of my friends, roasting marshmallows. One of the ingredients listed in the marshmallows was "tetrasodium pyrophosphate" (it's a thickening agent, made from one pyrophosphate molecule (chemical formula P2O7, another name I've used online) and 4 sodium atoms). I thought that sounded awesome.
Back then, each account was limited to something like 5 posts per day, so every regular user had multiple accounts (if I remember correctly). I made both Tetrasodium and Pyrophosphate as accounts, but I always liked Pyrophosphate better.

It had to be something related to music (like my first avatar) because music is my life and I'm absolutely nothing without it, I'd have gone mad without music. I love Bob Dylan and Ballad of a thin man is one of my favourite songs.

I'm a lot like that guy who enters an unknown place and has no idea of what's going on. Everything is strange. He is a stranger. I am a stranger.

"You try so hard
But you dont understand
Just what youll say
When you get home"


"You walk into the room
Like a camel and then you frown
You put your eyes in your pocket
And your nose on the ground
There ought to be a law
Against you comin around"


"Something is happening here
But you dont know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?"


I don't. I don't understand people, I don't understand what they do or why. Everything has a lot of mistery for me. I just don't understand.

Plus, I wanted to keep being anonymous, so I didn't want a weird name, I wanted to stay here without people noticing that I was there. I wanted a common name. Jones. Jones is everyone and no one. I am no one. John Doe. Mister Jones.

All I wanted in the same username, I couldn't let slip the opportunity haha

Summoning it's a 2 man band who plays atmospheric black metal, inspired in the Lord Of The Rings. They create the most epic atmosphere I've ever heard in my entire life. So, being one of my favourite bands it was easy to me to pick that nickname.

It's from GTA IV: The Lost and Damned, where you play as a member of The Lost motorcycle club.
