Drinking Whiskey and Playing Video Games: What the Fuck is THIS?!


HAY MY NAME IS JEFF.
 No really, it is.
 But let me tell you some about me. I grew up kind of knowing I wanted to work heavily in entertainment. The problem was that I wasn't always entertaining, but somewhere in the depths of my soul I had it. It just needed to get out of me.
I lived in Florida most of my life where old people go to die. Tourism is probably the largest industry in Florida, so naturally what else do you do when you get old? You just look at shit and walk around. Sounds perfect for tourism.
I decided though that I'd move to California to pursue a career in motion picture. Well, that's kind of on the backburner. After graduating grad school, I didn't know what the flying everloving fuck to do, so I felt it was best if I learned how to market myself. And that's how I found marketing.

Streaming on Twitch: How the Fuck did THAT happen?!

I've been streaming on Twitch since July of 2013. I literally called a friend up working at Fry's to ask if he could see my twitch stream from his phone. You should have heard me shout when it happened. You probably did. You just didn't know it was me.
But anygee, I decided after years of streaming on Twitch and my love for drinking whiskey and playing video games, that I would revamp my stream into something a little bit...different. If you've seen my stream before, it's nothing like it used to be. I did everything from the ground-up and I had a little help from some folks in the graphic design department.
But I've integrated a lot more than what you see here, and there's so much more behind the scenes than what you realize. It's a nightmare to keep track of everything, but I've had a blast integrating it all. In the future, you'll see video game reviews of a different nature here. If they're streamable, how they played, and other tidbits I'd love to share. I promise you though, you'll laugh.

 So without further ado, if you'd like to see what I have in store for you, please check out the stream. And if you haven't noticed...everything is disease-related.

Welcome to The DiZeeZ'D. The strain is alive! Thanks.

Carmen Electra's Striptease Video Workout and XSplit's VCam Software

It was around 2007 that I moved to Jacksonville and met up with some cool folks to hang out with. Some of these peeps were Navy folks which was the dominant military service in the area. Mayport was nearby, and so the Navy presence was pretty high. I was happy to find some circle of friends to be around, and it turns out we got up to some weird shenanigans.



I don't remember why, but this group of friends and I decided to put on Carmen Electra's Aerobic Striptease video. It was me, two Navy guys, and a Navy guy's wife. Yes, we practiced warming up, raising our arms and rotating our wrists. Yes, it was a striptease warmup.

XSplit has just released their newest software product, VCam. If you're streaming video games via Twitch, it might be a solid product to take a look at. It all depends on what you want and what you have. A lot of videogame streamers use green screens with proper lighting. However, that can easily reach up into the range of several hundreds of dollars…

E3 2019: Quite Possibly My Favorite E3 of All

Phil Spencer recently admitted that the E3 show for 2019 was weaker specifically because Activision and Sony weren't at the con. I couldn't disagree more with his opinion, as I thought this latest con was probably the best--at least for me. And I'll tell you why.

Why E3 2019 Was Impressive For Me So, my first foray into E3 was through AOL. I had a very strong misconception that I would be trying the latest games, meeting awesome folks, and partying a ton. The latter part was somewhat true as I got some pretty decent party invites, but the former aspects weren't. Attending E3 under media, especially controlled media, is a lot more work than you might think.
It's quite literally going to an interview, record interview, sit down, write the interview, and go to the next interview. That's about it. You're there to work, and that's what they make you do. Or, of course, you lose your job, and while I can think of many jobs I wouldn't want over professiona…

Re-signing up for the Twitch Affiliate Program and Twitch Schedule Changes

For the past two and a half years, employment has been an unsteady situation for me. I was scared at times because I wasn't sure if I could actually make a living. Being torn between finding a career that fits your interests and settling in something that makes you a living isn't an easy position. I've faced it multiple times and have even changed interests over time. Originally, I was set on motion picture. Then I was set on a career in gaming. And now, I find myself making a living doing marketing--not dealing with subject matter I care about, but I enjoy the work and I get to come home to do what I want. It's a scary thing to realize that you don't have enough money to make rent and so you have to swallow your pride and do what you must in order to pull yourself out of the darkness. It's not fun. I used to go out almost nightly, hit bar after bar after bar until finally, I realized that way of living wasn't sustainable anymore. I had to scale back and r…
