“Madcapsules” has been my Internet handle for a good 10-15 years now, and I’ve managed to secure it across almost everything.
Well, I guess I’m glad you asked! You see, I’m one of those very uninspired individuals that named myself after a band. Everything else I was looking for was taken, so I tried Madcapsules. And here we are.
Madcapsules refers to the Japanese punk-rock-industrial-heavy-whatever band “The Mad Capsule Markets”. I first saw these guys in 2004 at the Summer Sonic festival in Japan, and soon became a fan. They aren’t huge and don’t have a massive following outside of Japan (it’s hard to even find their music on streaming services), although one of their songs was on one of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games. Thus, it was pretty easy to secure the name, and this is me most places you see “Madcapsules”… or mdcpsls, which I use for Steam and Instagram (and mdcpslmrkts on Xbox Live, just to make things difficult).
Here’s a video for your reference – this is most likely part of the set I originally saw at Summer Sonic.
Good Question! It started out as a blog – a place for me to share myself with the world, and in some ways, it’s still very much that. However, with new projects, I’ve decided to use Madcapsules Gaming as a business platform from which I can launch my pursuits. Initially, I’ve launched a podcast, Cephalon Squared, which is growing much faster and much more successfully than I had expected. There’s more I can share in regards to my love for Warframe, so I’m branching out into other areas – watch this space.
The future may hold even more additions – on the one hand, I may branch out and replicate my process for another game. Alternatively, I may assist others who are looking to do what I’ve done. Making a podcast is surprisingly easy. As is making a website. And my next project may surprise you.
