EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW!!1 ~ madsoul
Welcome to another, EXLCLUSIVE INTERVIEW, hosted by Scorned.
I dont want to keep you, so lets just go straight to the interview:
Me: As many of us forum members know, you arent from the regular countries that people are usually from. Which country do you live in currently?
madsoul: i live in this little country that looks like a d*** together with finland. yeah, Sweden. its cold here... brr...
Me: Is it always cold, or is there times where its warm?
madsoul: well, for me its "warm" in the summers. i bet people from warmer parts of the world would come over here in comfy cloths while we swedes run around in bathing suits lol.
Me: Hahahaha. Well, down here in Texas, its...Hot. I wouldnt mind the cold weather at all, itd be a relief. You know English really well for someone in another country...Any reasons why?
madsoul: well, any guy/girl in my age or older have been tought english since they where like 7 years old so its part of our daily life. learning english and so. and i tend to mostly talk to english people on forums and i have alot of friends who live outside europe so its good having a universal language to be understood well.
Me: Well, you sure do know english really well...Better than some people on the forums.
Now on to something i can only imagine many people have wondered...You admit that you have a good, if not great, talent for photoshop and art?
madsoul: hah! well yeah... or i dunno. im really great with paper and pencil but i totally suck a colors when they are going to be drawn by hand. photoshop however i know pretty well know. i gues i got design in my blood lol.
Me: When did you get into photoshop, and art in general?
madsoul: uhm... i gues i have drawn ever since i was little. the freaky stuff with mutated bodyparts and flesh came about... this year after looking up this artist called HR Giger. amazing stuff! check it out. and well, i got into PS about a year ago i think
Me: Wow, only a year and your this good? Good inspiration for some aspiring PS'ers. When did you join?
madsoul: i started out just browsing through the forums without registering for a while ( i belive around Dec) then i registered after getting a psp for christmas in January. since then i have been hooked on this damn QJ drug lol.
Me: Many of us have, haha. Who were the first people you met, and what was your opinion of them?
madsoul: haha, yeah...! uhm, well i remember my first "friends" (lolz) was Serideth, TMK, Hooger, and some other dudes... Delight1 <3 (im no pedo) it was not after some month later i discovered the holy MDPR.... where steven, gmansixfo, josey wales and the rest spammed around. thats when i got really hooked fs
Me: What did you think of MDPR the first time you were there?
madsoul: actually i thought "wtf is this ****..." then i got "WHO THE **** ARE YOU??!!" from this angry member. i got kinda pissed at first... but it turned out fine in the end.
Me: Did you come to MDPR before or after it got closed?
madsoul: looong before it got closed. im as old as the pspunk flaming days... ummm, that was good times. ^^
Me: I lol'd. What do you think of MDPR/General Offtopic now?
madsoul: well, its kinda empty to be honest... all the really great members are gona since long. its kinda dying out in my opinion. the forum is filled with n00bs in the psp section as usual. nothing new.
Me: You also make music correct? [Good music, may i add] When did you start your indulgence into melody?
madsoul: thank you! <3 well i started making music myself around 1999 in a program called impulse tracker. back then i sucked quite much lol. but i have learned ,ore and more. now i work in FL-studio. and my biggest inspiration is my brother i gues who have been making electronic music since the begining of the 90s in various ways. and my sister sings. so, yeah. musical familly kinda.
Me: How many siblings do you have currently?
madsoul: i have 2 sisters and 1 brother. if someone can recall me talking about a second brother way way back (for hardcore QJ people) i was in a ****ed up mood so i made that up for some bored reason lol. nevermind that heh...
Me: What would you say would be your favorite artist/genre of music?
madsoul: i generally hate genres in every possible way. it distracts people from looking into other places to find there lost gems in the collection. quite sad actually. but if i should go after my last fm acount.... i listen mostly to these genres: triphop/ambient/classical/experimental/electronic my favorite music artists are: massive attack, björk, hooverphonic, musetta, aphex twin, röyksopp, the knife and many more.
Me: Any favorite songs?
madsoul: ah man! too hard question! there are too many favorites from all of them. but i could point out some amazing albums from some of them: the knife - silent shout, björk - vespertine, massive attack - mezzanine, aphex twin - selected ambient work 85-92, hooverphonic - a new stereophonic sound spectacular
Me: What do you in your spare time, besides the obvious qj, music, and art?
madsoul: well, im in a theatre group and mix sound live for it and sometimes play a part in a play. i also have a band called Diabase Collective: (Link: http://www.myspace.com/diabasecollec...basecollective and i go to school.. i gues.. thats pretty much it right now.
Me: what do you plan to "become", i guess you could say, in the future?
madsoul: i would want to become a conceptartist for a game company... are maybe make music for something. i dunno... il gues il end up at mc donald like some forgotten soul as everyone els lol. but you could allways dream heh!
Me: Thanks madsoul!
And that wraps up this review...For now. Hopefully, there will be future updates to this interview, but for now, thats what we have. Enjoy! And thanks to madsoul for taking the time to answer all these questions. :)
