It’s 2019. We back.

Okay, it’s the new year and I’m back. Here’s really what’s going to be.

As much as I stream, that’s not really my main game obviously. I make movies and stuff. shorts, features, whatever I can really do. I do.

That said, they plans for 2019 are heavily based on that.

I plan to have a short film (at least) once a month. I’ll be cronicleing that process through streams as I process everything. Cast stuff, whatever.
Then I’ll post the results here and on Youtube. Depends on how much reach I can get with either platform.

Far as streaming goes. It’s going down every night at 9pm when I get home from work.

Mental Health Monday:
I know Mondays are really tough. So we’re going to play some chill games like Hearthstone and just talk about what made is feels stuff that day.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. I’m gonna be playing something. Dunno what. You guys give me some ideas. I’ll try and get some sort of rotation going.

Thursday Nights: Is the Thursday Show. It’s a day when I bring on a guest and we talk about a particular topic. Lelani already wants to talk about some shit with me so that’s nice (she’s a great lady)
But it’s not your average little podcast. The first half is spend talking about stuff. The second half we put on some games like Jackbox and get that dark humor flowing.
This will happen as soon as I get to someplace where I have an actual desk again. Shouldn’t be long.

Friday Mornings will be Office Hour.
I’ll just popup and show you what writing and/or film related stuff has been going down and maybe ask for some ideas about where I should go next.

So yeah, there we go. That’s where we’re at.
——-

But as for where I’m at.
I’m currently at a home for homeless veterans. Me standing up for my fellow employees landed me where I didn’t want to be. That’s how it goes sometimes. Would I do it differently. No, because where I was working was pretty stupid and terrible. But that’s a story I can tell another time if you want to hear it. Got pretty screwed to say the least. But I’m finally getting some veterans benefits that have been owed to me for a decade.

Yes, a decade.

Basically, I’m starting from scratch. Gotta get all my equipment back. Everything. But I guess it’s for the best. But , as I work at Dyson (I work the order backend and don’t get paid enough), at least for the next couple of months, I’m going to try and make this a full time thing. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll have a new place in a couple of weeks hopefully. I can set up the studio so I don’t have to have this poverty setup at half power.

How can you help. You can like and share the hell out of the page. You can give me ideas of things to write about. Those are the most important.

Then we got the amazon list for the office
(It’s mostly for me so I remember what the hell I have to buy) https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1J4D0L4KXP1VR…, but hopefully I can be at full strength soon. I just need a desk, my back screams out for it.

But hey, thanks for reading. Let’s go do fun stuff. Let’s play some games. Let’s make some movies.

Bad, but in a good way. Bad Moms Christmas

Bad-Moms-Christmas

Well, last year, Bad Moms came out. It was a fun little movie that was a lot funnier than it really should have been. The tale of three suburban moms trying to take the stick out of their asses and live life. At least that’s what I got from it.

Now, a year later. We have the same group of women getting the stick out of their asses… at Christmas. With the parents coming to visit conveniently at the same time.

Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski, and Cheryl Hines join the cast this time around as the grandmothers and as you could guess, are all clashing with their children in one way or another.

If you’ve seen any Christmas movie, you’re already seen the one. From the buildup of the anger, to the blowup, to the reconciliation. It’s all standard stuff. You’ll have some really good laughs in there though. They don’t always feel organic, but they’re laughs nonetheless.

And yes, there’s a swath of movie that’s literally a commercial for Jumpzone. They Adam Sandlered a commercial into the movie. But the scenes were funny so it’s okay I guess.

3/5… it’s fun and you should see it after you make the better choice and see Thor. And there’s a sequel coming so you might as well be up to date. It’s not as good as the first. But that’s a rarity these days anyway.

So go see Thor AND this. It’s a good combo.

 

ACEN 2016: I Walked a Lot.

00288.MTS_snapshot_00.31_[2016.05.29_19.25.46]

I’m not a huge Anime person these days to be perfectly honest. But it’s always cool when people come together to share in random shit that they like. That’s the spice of life right there.

I decided hella late to come to ACEN this year where I haven’t been in almost a decade. Like every year it’s in Rosemont over at the Hyatt and pretty much in a food desert. So that 7-11 run over by the Westin (where I stayed, about over a mile away.) really had to count. Shoutouts to Mountain Dew.

I got in at around 4:30. I had to go to Workcon before I hopped the Blue Line and made my way over to the Hyatt where I met Alex and Erik and we all got our badge situation together. Then I had to walk all the way to the Westin where all my gear was. My 50 pounds of camera gear. That a carried around all weekend.

ALL.
WEEKEND.

But anyway, I finally got back around 6, and I went downstairs to see my buddies at Tokyo Attack. They’re still kicking ass and bringing the most badass games with them. They’ve come a long way. I got some personal records on Pump and made many a nerd salty at Pokken. I really like the Pokken set up, they should really have at least one more though and run some tournaments on it. That’s just me talking though.

The rest of my time there was spent going to a couple of press junkets like with the guy who did the voice of Scorpion in the latest MK titles. The rest of my time was spent and filming a long video project that you’ll see in a few days (I’ll link it here when it’s done.)  Then I entered Pokken where I got Top 16 and the tournament took wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy too long and started late. But that’s just how it goes.

All and all I wasn’t really blown away with the guests and such this time around. It must be an off year or maybe it’s just me. There wasn’t a ton of new info (they couldn’t talk about a lot of stuff, which I understand). But the guests were cool as hell folk.

Overall, despite having to walk back and forth to the hotel a total of 7 times and having issues finding the panel rooms (the map didn’t help a lot). It was actually a decent time. I saw people I had not seen in years and I have a ton of video footage I’m eager to show in a really unique way.

That all said, will I be back next year.

Yes, but in a different capacity. Stay tuned for that one.
