Actually

Jan 3, 2016 | | Say something

I don’t have resolutions, I just got a job. As an artist I relish limitations because I’m absolutely terrible at choosing things arbitrarily. (If you consider that most people mean “unexpected” when they say “random,” then their description of me becomes a lot easier to understand: they’re idiots.) I have had an immensely difficult time […more]

Streaming is Bad Luck

Nov 9, 2015 | | Say something

Seriously though why doesn’t this shit ever happen when people are watching? I feel like an audience is the number one contributor to bad RNG. CONSPIRACY, etc….

Emote time bitches. Raged at KINGDOM a few days ago and while I was editing it I stumbled on this frame that ended up not making it into the video. But I still think it’s hilarious and don’t want to toss it. Just not sure how much brown on my head is necessary to communicate […more]

Twitching on Twitter

Sep 26, 2015 | | Say something

Being a prodigious procrastinator, I have done everything in my power to improve my viewer count other than actually streaming. I’m not being scientific about anything, I’m just sharing a resource I’ve discovered. I already have the automatic tweet occurring when I start my stream, and I’m not going to disable it, because I will […more]

Dozen Arena Mage Newb

Aug 26, 2015 | | Say something

I achieved my first 12-win Arena today. As with all accomplishments in my life, allow me to reduce the shit out of it so it doesn’t sound like that much of an achievement any more. lol sux Mage incidentally, both games that were lost were lost to Mage, but I was afk for one of […more]

Troll Trolling Trolls

It really amazes me how adamant some viewers are about how a game “should” be played. Pictured above is Cosmo, and his Cheesepuff. If you don’t know who Cosmo is, I’d say he’s probably best known for his Ocarina of Time speedruns, though he runs other games as well. If you aren’t familiar with speedrunning, […more]

STREAM QUALITY: Broad Chat

Aug 6, 2015 | | Say something

There are plenty of technical issues that can “break” a stream: it buffers too much, it’s too blurry, the webcam has a poor angle, the microphone is picking up the noise of your spouse beating the family dog with a wrench. These are all specific nitpicks which are solvable by some direct method. Usually there’s […more]

Hearthstone SCALE

Jul 31, 2015 | | Say something

I have a dirty, filthy lust for spreadsheets and initialisms. I’ve identified that the game that intersects on “size of audience” and “my ability to play” is definitely Hearthstone. There’s no doubt in my mind there are games I like more, nor doubt that there are more popular games. But if there’s a game that […more]

THAT VOICE

Jul 12, 2015 | | Say something

Was watching a friend play Dragon Age 2 yesterday and I mentioned that I recognized someone’s voice. “Where do you NOT hear a voice actor from somewhere else?” he asked me. I have no evidence to contradict him. Yo Buddy… Still Alive? It takes a real man…. Legacy Part 2 – Full Darkseid Fight Also: […more]

O HAI

I started playing Eve Online a day or two ago. I’m mostly playing because I want to scum through some swarmy nullsec PvP, but I decided to make a hauler/trade altĀ  (pictured above and below) so I can quickly/easily transport more ships for my main to die horribly in. I’m so fucking excited.
