A much abbreviated version of an older online name. I started out online as "Captain Farrell". Due to various character length restrictions, I eventually shortened this to "CaptFarrell".
People refered to me almost exclusively as 'capt' from that point [with lower case 'c' due to laziness, but I decided to keep it], so I went with it.

However, it got hard to actually register anywhere with that name, as it was inevitably taken. So, I added the 'f' back in, keeping with a lower case theme. And it's been like that for a number of years now.

I'm out of college, with over $100,000 in student loan debt, and have a moderate at best job. So making ends meet is a stretch. I eat a lot of PB&J sandwiches to help keep costs down. :/

Spoonerism for Roast Beef. I like playing with words. I also listen to a lot of music. And the title of that one song of the producer that few people have ever heard of happened to be perfect.

My YT and username here stem from my purchase of my 2014 BMW R1200RT (her name is RiTa) for commuting purposes. I've been toying with the idea of changing to my lifelong nickname of WeePly (pronounced as two words Wee-Ply) but not sure, so I'd love your input on it...

So mine was given to me by about 60'hairy bikers at my first ever bike rally!
We've gotten to the site of the rally for a full weekend of bikes,booze and bands,get on it straight away,drinking from 11am to 3-4am the next day.
Anyway,last band finishes and I go to walk down the hill to my tent "Need a piss" me thinks, so off I go to the portaloo.
Said portaloo has no lights and it's pitch black so out comes my phone (a blackberry at the time)' so I'm holding my phone in one hand and my little fella in the other and all of a sudden I experience what I can only describe as a booze induced spasm of the left hand.....which was holding the phone.......next thing I hear...."PLOP"....yep, phones gone down the portaloo, on the last night of a 4 day rally hosting over 2000 hairy bikers and all insuing beer & pie enduced excrement you can imagine
Needless to say I was very close to shoving my hand down there to retrieve said blackberry,however thought better of it,never got it back but not a sole believe that I didn't stick my hand down there to try and find it,and due to the awful blue sludge they fill those portaloos up with and my surname being Bradley, BlueHandBradley was born!!

So my Youtube name is "itsMosby"

I was first named "Mega Mr.Moseby" long time ago in a Online-game, then I changed to "Mr.Moseby" only, then just "Moseby"/"Mosby". So now my name is "itsMosby".

Motor wrapped in aluminum, coated in plastic, flanked by two wheels.
I was thinking about buying a new bike, and I decided I wanted a vanity plate on it. So, I was trying to come up with names to put on the plate. I saw a commercial for the show "Hawaii Five Oh" and I thought "Hawaii is at the top of the plate, I could just put "five oh" as my plate number, and it would say "Hawaii Five Oh." But then I realized how ghey it would be for a guy who's not a cop, to have that plate name. So a little more thinking turned up ... I figured since my bike at the time was a cop magnet, I wanted something to mean that on the next bike. You know how young girls are called jail bait? Well, my bike is cop bait... five oh bait. Dingle berry, dingle berry, juicy juice.

Since this thread has been dug up o_O

ED are my initials and used that for online gaming 15 years ago (OperationFlashpoint). During one game a friend said "you're a headcase!"
So 'case' was added... ;)
(I still play that game as 'EDcase' but the game is now called ARMA3)

Used that pretty much for everything online.

Just a make of my name. Use a mix of my name for most accounts and had the account since YouTubes first years so just kept the name. Motovlogging sort of just happened, considered making a channel just devoted to it but decided to keep it as I already had subscribers and views on my other random videos.
