Meeting People from Adult Friend Finder in Person--at a Christian Meetup

Here are two people that have obviously had sex. You probably won't get this often if you are constantly streaming video games via Twitch.

It was probably 2004 when I decided to take the leap and purchase a subscription to Adult Friend Finder. Yep, I did it. It wasn't very expensive and I got to contact women that might also be interested in a possible wham-bam-GG-ma'am. I was at Florida State University at the time and love—or some version of it—was in the air. So sure, I'll sign up for a year. 30 bucks wasn't too much damage for some shenanigans.

At that time, I was also a Christian. Shocker, I know. I'll admit, one of the most attractive things for me when attending a church was the women, and what better reason to explore the churches and Christian meetups in the area? I was all for praising Jesus and getting a girl to scream the Lord's name between the sheets. Man is naturally sinful, so have fun before you get sent to hell, you know?

Streaming Video Games Via Twitch: Remaining Ethical

Sometimes when you try to attain your dreams, you make enemies. It's a fact. I can remember reading about how Quentin Tarantino was part of some four-man team that each tried to help each other succeed in Hollywood, and the last I read about one of the particular individuals, they were in a lawsuit with Tarantino over something. It's a difficult call to make when someone approaches you (metaphorically) and offers you your path to success and your dream—only to be told you have to screw your friends over. Entertainment often works like that.

Since I haven't been very successful at streaming video games via Twitch, I recognize I'm not the biggest authority on it. There's a lot of things in place to see success for myself, it's just the terrible grind looms over my head, and I decided to take what I had to turn into a practice of sorts. So take my word with a grain of salt. I don't know a ton, but I know enough to have a perspective on things that can bring insight to people that want to get into video game streaming.

You might be prompted with an opportunity to see success, only to leave people that trust you behind. My recommendation is don't do it. Here's why. Sure, you can make an entire business out of streaming video games if you set your mind to it, work hard, and keep pushing content on a consistent basis. But the problem is you may end up hating it. A friend of mine refuses to work in the gaming industry specifically because he doesn't want to turn what he loves into what he hates. He's got a very valid point. The fun in something is being able to pick it up when you want and put it down when you want—that's not possible if you're making a career out of streaming. 

It's your choice to make unethical decisions when it comes to streaming, but recognize that depending on the choice you make, you may end up alienating your audience, losing friends, and losing your business over it too. Success is never worth sacrificing friends. I've learned the hard way.

Several months after I joined Adult Friend Finder, I went to a Christian meetup group where I recognized one of the members of the meetup from AFF. Stay classy.

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…

2018 in Review: A Reflection on Twitch Streaming and the Videogame Industry

I'm not going to lie to you. This year has been probably the worst year for me in terms of gaming. We've seen a lot of industry shifts happen that are pointing towards a constant reminder: video game companies are corporations. They produce product that people will buy, and if that doesn't happen the company dies. Often times, products aren't what the players want, or perhaps the product isn't a very strong one. Regardless, we must remember that there isn't a thing called a "good" corporation. They just exist for money, and it's a harsh thought as our generation, the people that grew up with these game companies, starts to see our favorite pastime turn into product.

As we move into 2019, I'm reflecting on a lot in this post—why I haven't streamed on Twitch or Mixer lately, what I'm dealing with personally, where games might be going in the future and some terrible incidents that have definitely marred gaming. Let me be clear that I…

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…
