Interviews with the SHS Staff

The Goddess interviews Madskillz QCer for SHS and BSS.

uniquec: After a little more than a month absence, we once again found another member of the Shinsen staff who was willing to do a Goddess interview Madskillz. Who knows what revelations that will be revealed on today's show.

Madskillz: Alright, let's do this.

uniquec: Now that you prepared yourself for it mentally.

uniquec: So what do you do in the world of fansubbing?

Madskillz: I'm a QCer.

uniquec: Who do you QCer for?

Madskillz: Shinsen and BSS.

uniquec: Why did you decide to get into fansubbing?

Madskillz: Hrm. Well, I had always appreciated the work that was done. When Shinsen asked for QCers, I figured it was the least I could do. And now here I am.

uniquec: The rest is history as they would say. How long have you been doing it?

Madskillz: Since around May. So... a little more than six months.

uniquec: And do you enjoy qcing?

Madskillz: Haha, sometimes. :D

uniquec: When you aren't complaining about the text. :)

uniquec: Who would you want to be stranded on a dsert island with?

Madskillz: Hey, now, that was only one time.

uniquec: Only one time when it got to you that you vented your displeasure.

Madskillz: And here I was formulating a response for your next question.

Madskillz: Now I have to respond to that.

uniquec: Uh oh. See I do pay attention at times even when I don't say anything at the time.

Madskillz: Yeah that lurking should cease.

Madskillz: Anyway. I started out with shows that were already halfway done. After that, I worked on new series from the beginning. Then I went back to working on a show that was halfway done that I had never seen before.

uniquec: Lol well who would you want to be stranded with?

Madskillz: My first guess would be pandbag, since we could eat socks for food and might attempt a sock raft.

Madskillz: On second thought, that raft wouldn't be very successful.

uniquec: He would be happy to hear that he's mentioned.

uniquec: Especially if it is made out of socks.

uniquec: Anyone else?

Madskillz: Hrm. I haven't really talked extensively with anyone else.

uniquec: Doesn't have to be any fansubbing people?

Madskillz: Yeah, but that's the fun/interesting part.

Madskillz: Maybe just pandas in general.

Madskillz: Pandbag and pandas.

uniquec: Lol. What are your hobbies outside fansubbing?

Madskillz: And that may or may not have been influenced by what is transpiring in another chat.

Madskillz: I'd have to say photography.

uniquec: Yeah just ignore the attention whore.

Madskillz: Ouch.

Madskillz: I currently intern for a daily paper and it's one of the best things I've ever done.

uniquec: What do you like to photograph more subject wise?

Madskillz: I shoot a lot of sports, but I'm open to anything, really.

uniquec: Where would you like to travel but never been?

Madskillz: Insert obligatory Japan comment here.

Madskillz: And Spain.

Madskillz: I've been around Europe, but never Spain.

uniquec: And reasoning as well?

uniquec: Where would you recommend to travel to that you been?

Madskillz: Hey now, one at a time.

uniquec: Well then...

Madskillz: I've studied the Spanish language for a few years and I'd rather like to study abroad there.

Madskillz: And Japan for all of the reasons that anyone in fansubbing would ever mention.

Madskillz: Which would be... the culture.

uniquec: The best way to learn a language is to live there for a period of time.

Madskillz: That's what they say.

uniquec: No specific place in either countries?

Madskillz: Sevilla, Madrid, Barcelona.

Madskillz: I would love to see Barca play.

uniquec: Why?

Madskillz: Alright, now you're just being obtuse.

Madskillz: :P

Madskillz: Because Barca is a fantastic soccer team.

uniquec: Haha it's only just started.

uniquec: So what country/city you would recommend visiting?

Madskillz: As for where I've been, I'll go with Chicago, Normandy and Italy.

Madskillz: Chicago's just a fantastic city overall.

Madskillz: Normandy, France has some incredible history.

Madskillz: It's really awe-inspiring.

Madskillz: And Italy, except for Venice, is just culturally rich and beautiful.

uniquec: What would you like to do but never done?

Madskillz: First thing that comes to mind is to shoot the Super Bowl, something like that.

uniquec: Where it combines your love of sports and photography go hand to hand.

Madskillz: We have a winner.

uniquec: What is your favourite food?

Madskillz: I'll eat pretty much anything, honestly.

uniquec: Nothng you enjoy more?

Madskillz: Chocolate is pretty fantastic.

uniquec: Food you dislike the most?

Madskillz: Can't really think of anything.

uniquec: You can eat anything then.

Madskillz: I haven't tried everything. I'm sure eventually I'll find something I just cannot consume.

uniquec: How do you se yourself 20 years from now?

Madskillz: Photographing.

Madskillz: Doing something I enjoy.

Madskillz: Listening to some fantastic music.

uniquec: What type of music do you enjoy?

Madskillz: Might sense a common theme here, but I'll listen to just about anything.

uniquec: Nothing you can't stand?

Madskillz: Haha, plenty.

uniquec: For example?

Madskillz: But when you're in college and you need to play something that people recognize for a party, sacrifices must be made.

Madskillz: Most of the pop today is obnoxious, along with the mainstream 'rap' and 'hip hop.'

uniquec: And for you that is?

Madskillz: And country is just right out.

uniquec: Lol.

Madskillz: For me.

uniquec: So what song would be your personal anthem?

Madskillz: Hahaha. That kind of distinction is never made in my mind.

uniquec: None would represent the whole you?

Madskillz: Well, I'm really edgy and complex, see.

Madskillz: :D

uniquec: Aren't we all, some more than others though.

Madskillz: So, no. My favorite albums shuffle around quite a bit.

uniquec: Innie or outie belly button?

Madskillz: Now we're hitting the real meat of the interview.

Madskillz: Innie, also. Everyone knows that outies are just weird.

uniquec: Yeah my must have questions.

uniquec: Boxers or briefs?

Madskillz: Boxers. Restriction is a no-no.

uniquec: Lol then underwear should also be a no-no then. :)

Madskillz: ...

uniquec: Introvert or extrovert?

Madskillz: A revelation!

uniquec: A revelation of what?

Madskillz: Your underwear enlightenment.

Madskillz: And I'm introverted and extroverted, depending on the situation.

uniquec: Hahaha such enlightenment that it is.

Madskillz: Certainly.

uniquec: Favourite colour?

Madskillz: White or black. Something clean, contrasty. And no preference. Make of that what you will. Also, it's color. :)

uniquec: I know that duh. Do you remember your dreams?

Madskillz: Vaguely. It's confusing.

uniquec: You tend to have confusing dreams?

Madskillz: Either that or the way I remember them.

Madskillz: Which isn't really surprising, I suppose.

uniquec: What is the strangest dream that you remembered?

Madskillz: Probably one as a child where my house was filled with large crabs.

uniquec: Where they attacking you?

Madskillz: Not to my knowledge. But they were to be avoided, certainly.

Madskillz: I mean, shit.

Madskillz: Gigantic crabs.

Madskillz: You don't wait to let those attack.

Madskillz: :D

uniquec: Well you could have caught them and then cooked them.

Madskillz: Again with the revelations.

uniquec: I'm so helpful.

uniquec: Do you dream in colour or black and white?

Madskillz: They were colorful crabs. I know that much. Also, it's color. :)

uniquec: Not if you are British or Canadian...it is colour.

uniquec: If you were a super hero what super powers would you want and why?

Madskillz: The power to turn people into pandas.

Madskillz: Oh dear, pandbag has worn off on me.

uniquec: Yeah...most definitely.

uniquec: And why would you want to do such deviouus thing like that?

Madskillz: Who said it was devious?

Madskillz: Maybe they'd have a better life.

Madskillz: Pandbag seems to be enjoying himself.

uniquec: Lol but he is a deviant want to be panda.

uniquec: Would you abuse your ability to turn people into pandas?

Madskillz: Who wouldn't?

uniquec: Like using it on certain ZK?

Madskillz: Revelations, I tell you!

uniquec: Favourite anime?

Madskillz: Definitely don't have one favorite.

uniquec: One you hate the most?

Madskillz: Just because I said I don't have one doesn't mean I don't have a few!

Madskillz: Favorites: Mushishi, Darker than Black, Moyashimon, Black Lagoon, Code Geass...

Madskillz: And I don't really hate any, because if I don't like it, I don't watch it. Or I pretend like I'm QCing something more interesting. :D

uniquec: Pretend that you are busy doing other qcing work.

Madskillz: Haha, no, no.

Madskillz: I'm not that mean.

Madskillz: I'll QC it.

Madskillz: But I'll imagine it's a better show.

Madskillz: It works for now.

uniquec: You will suffer through it.

Madskillz: My life for Aiur.

uniquec: Like what shows do you pretend that they are beter than they really are?

Madskillz: Those are secrets.

uniquec: How do you like to eat eggs?

Madskillz: I'll eat eggs pretty much any way, just so long as they're cooked.

uniquec: Overly hyped.

uniquec: Is there anything you treasure?

Madskillz: Family, friends.

uniquec: Materially wise?

Madskillz: Attempting to trick me into being shallow?

Madskillz: I see how it is.

uniquec: There are no trick question or right and wrong answers.

Madskillz: I don't necessarily have a lot of faith in anything.

Madskillz: But I feel like it will all work out.

uniquec: One way or another.

Madskillz: Something like that.

Madskillz: Ideally.

uniquec: But in reality...

Madskillz: What?

uniquec: Would it really say that?

Madskillz: Well, what do you want me to say?

uniquec: I don't know, It isn't mine.

uniquec: See you survived it and it wasn't that bad.

Madskillz: But, of course. Happy to help.

uniquec: This concludes another SHS staff interview and we know that a certain panda should be happy since he was mentioned during this. We would like to thank Madskillz for taking the time in doing this interview.
