What Makes for Funny Entertainment? Buying a "Hot" Xbox 360

funny entertainment


Back when I worked in retail, I remember that my Xbox 360 red ringed at some point after playing Mass Effect. It's one of the reasons I never finished the series, and so it left a sour taste in my mouth. I lamented that to a co-worker while I worked in a tech shop.

"You want another 360?"

A-yuh!

"Shake on it!"

I reached out my hand—a little nervous—and shook, presumably to a fate that I would regret.

"Bring a hundred and fifty tomorrow. Bring it."

I don't think I've ever remembered something so strongly in my life. 

The next day, I remember walking out to the middle of the parking lot at work to a near-destroyed car that somehow still operated. I shook the hand of Mr. Smiley, as I nicknamed him, and felt a sense of overwhelming dread.

Cyanide and Happiness has their own version of a BR game, one that's a lot more simplistic and fun than what you might have tried in the past. Plus, there's not really much of a communication aspect to the game and so most of your time can be spent focusing on making some funny entertainment for your viewers if you're going to stream it. Plus, a lot of the humor from the comic carries over. You can add boobs to your character, a...dong...and customize your character with mustaches, foppy hairdos, or a combination of facial hair, boobs, and dongs, which goes into scary territory about who the people that are left behind really are.

But anyways, I bought the Xbox 360. Mr. Smiley got back in his completely beaten-up car just after telling me "You never saw me!"

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…
