Crypto Wallets

Mar 22, 2018 | | Say something

If you don’t currently have any cryptocurrency, you can get started through this referral link. It will give us both $10 of free bitcoin (BTC) once you’ve bought or sold $100 worth of bitcoin. My preference is to have the majority of my holdings in bitcoin. If you don’t know what to send me and […more]

Narrative Spring

Mar 21, 2018 | | Say something

After finishing Life is Strange in March, I realized that games which allow me to indefinitely agonize over the motivation and desires of characters allowed me the best opportunity for commentary during my stream. A particularly ugly rat-faced girl pointed out to me that I don’t talk enough during my streams, and while excus u […more]

Simplified Resolution Decision

Jan 3, 2018 | | Say something

Since I’ve been having some ISP throttling issues, and to respect my (apparently) majority viewership from mobile devices, I’ve set my target bitrate to approximately 2000kbps. From there you have to decide what kind of content you’re trying to deliver. It becomes much easier if, for example, you don’t give a fuck about YouTube. That’s […more]

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]
