Or actually, a little FAQ sort of thing.
Where does the name Captain come from?
Short answer:
I don’t remember exactly... but I do remember some fuzzy stories and details which might explain it.
Long answer:
When I was a kid, my parents went to a holiday trip (without me). After they came back, they told me there was a captain Kaarlonen (no relation) flying their airplane. Which was kind of a funny coincidence, since it’s not a very common last name in Finland.
A little later in my life, I was playing the submarine game Silent Service on the good old Commodore 64. If I recall correctly, you could type your name in the game, and I thought ”Captain Kaarlonen” sounded pretty cool. (Not sure if you could really type your name, or if I just imagined a name for my game character in my head.)
Even later, I was starting to make my own music on Amiga, and I needed a ”scene name”. I don’t remember when exactly I actually used ”Captain” to sign my work for the very first time, but after a while, it just stuck... and here I am with the same nickname, several years later.
What camera are you using?
Most of the photos here are taken with a Samsung NX-1, some with an iPhone 6 or 7.
Are you in Poets of the Fall? Did you make the song Space Debris?
Yes and yes.
What music do you listen to?
All kinds. Take a look at my Spotify playlist, and you'll get an idea. Warning: it's a complete mess of songs from various genres in no particular order. But I like it that way.
