October Experiment

Oct 29, 2017 | | Say something

I think my circumstances have changed enough to warrant a look at what my goals actually are. Previously: Got in a lot of fights, needed explosive power for decisive striking as well as fleeing (it turns out that if you get really far away from them right away and maintain distance for just a short […more]

August Lifts (2017)

Aug 21, 2017 | | Say something

I’m going to update this post with my lifting sessions in August following my abandonment of StrongLifts, which slightly disappoints me because I did pay for the app and do appreciate its automation of the process. Unfortunately, it’s too much volume for me on a caloric deficit, to the point that simply doing the Squat […more]

Faculty of Horror

Aug 20, 2017 | | Say something

Per my wall-sketti listening approach to podcasts, my hope is to have a pod-noodle that clings. The Faculty of Horror is the first such noodle for me. The Hosts Common things I notice when I listen to a podcast, which Andrea and Alex achieve stunningly well throughout: How long does it take to get to […more]

Viewer Parameters

Aug 18, 2017 | | Say something

A bottleneck is a point of congestion where weakness in one part of a workflow ruins the shit for all the goodness everywhere else. While I have the upload speed to stream 5000+kbps, many viewers can’t handle that. According to Netflix, none of them can. I took a look at my Twitch stats page and […more]

The Second Drive – August 16, 2017

Aug 16, 2017 | | Say something

I don’t have my driver’s license. I’d rather not discuss the car accident I was in that has made driving difficult for me, I mention it here just to acknowledge the source of my hang-up. Today is the second time I’ve driven since 2009 or ’10. Every person I’ve driven with (other than my own […more]

Avoiding Arena

Aug 11, 2017 | | Say something

Hearthstone Arena looks like trash so I’m not going to bother with it. All I really learned this week is that if I spent all night fucking around with my friend IRL, I don’t get enough rest and it spoils my ability to do anything for the rest of the week. I need to be […more]

Day’s Report – August 7, 2017

Aug 8, 2017 | | Say something

I think I’ll just skip the Days’ Reports for the weekends. Most of the time is spent at work listening to podcasts, anyway. 20:32 – 23:52 = Asleep I stayed in bed for about 8 minutes after my alarm. It took me that long to convince myself to not abandon my self-imposed schedule I hadn’t […more]

Streaming More

Aug 5, 2017 | | Say something

When Do You Stream? The most common things you will see as advice on Reddit about getting viewers: talk to yourself a lot be involved in other communities have a schedule I do the first naturally, and the second as a form of procrastinating from streaming myself. I think about the third a lot. I […more]

Day’s Report – August 4, 2017

Aug 5, 2017 | | Say something

Starting on Thursday Night 22:22 = Very Ready? I decided around 20:00 that I would definitely stream, despite completely missing my usual Thursday long-stream. Using a text message I sent to a friend as a guideline, 20:18 would be the most accurate estimate as to when I started to mentally prepare. The lights are not on yet, […more]

Aug 4, 2017 | | Say something

Missed a few days’ logs. I’ve been ill, and here are possible contributing factors: Spent 3 days with my mom that house is gross ate their food (also gross) cats liked me (ew) mom tends to stress me out anyway Went to the gym when I didn’t feel up to it (workout went fine though […more]
