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]

Routine Forming Hack

Jun 20, 2015 | | Say something

  When I used to really care about lifting, I remember being frequently asked “what is the best routine?” There are many ways to answer that. The best general answer that I didn’t come up (because it’s more broadly applicable) is “the one you can stick to.” But with a slightly narrower scope to the […more]

One Week Streak

Yesterday marked my first solid week of streaming. I only started streaming with any regularity less than a month ago, but this was the first time I’ve streamed seven consecutive days.

Arguably, my entire draft is a misplay, but I guess since it’s not REALLY why I’m making the clips…

Heroes of the Storm: Beta Beginnings

May 8, 2015 | | Say something

I’m always excited when I get into a beta. It’s really hard to get into a game that you weren’t around for from the beginning (which is why I haven’t started Hearthstone streaming yet, even though my average has improved considerably in arena.) The exclusivity makes streaming it a little more attractive, and getting the […more]

Almost Alive!

Apr 25, 2015 | | Say something

My streaming setup is finally complete! Yesterday, my webcam was delivered to me. After a few hours of tinkering (including the repurposing of a spotting tripod) I was able to satisfy myself. You know what I mean. The only thing about my stream layout that’s kinda lousy is that it’s difficult to decide how I […more]
