When I initially started this blog in February 2005, I intended on keeping my identity a secret. I felt that I would be less inhibited in what I posted. However, over the years, I have realized this has made very little difference. As soon as I put a link to my radio show, my MySpace page, and my podcast on this site, it became obvious to anyone paying attention that my name was not Howard. I attempted to clear up the confusion with a brief explanation on one of my earlier podcasts.
Because I am using my real name in all of those aforementioned places, I have decided to change my screen name here at The Dark Stuff to Dave. Dave Splash to be particular. No, that is not my real last name -- it is a nickname given to me in the mid 90s. It was getting confusing keeping track of all the different names. Now I will be Dave everywhere!!**
** For a couple weeks, I will have the (formerly known as Howard Davis) thing attached to ease you in your transition
