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]

Un’Goro Notes

Aug 3, 2017 | | Say something

How to Win? Break it down to two questions: How do I defend against aggression? How am I countering control? (Mages mostly.) At a primal level, the majority of Hearthstone winning is smacking face. At a specifically-arena level, the majority of matchups you have will be against Mage. Aggression Defenses Also being aggressive Spells Ping […more]
