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.

How to Tell if Someone is Viewbotting (and other malicious things)

There's an aspect of livestreaming video games that gets under my skin a bit. Viewbotting. A lot of streamers have done it in the past. In fact, I once caught someone viewbotting and looked at who the bots were "following." A laundry list of very familiar names showed up, many partnered accounts on Twitch with millions of followers. Well-known streamers making a living. It's definitely abused a lot on streaming platforms, sort of the "black hat" method of livestreaming. Thankfully, nobody I saw listed from those bot accounts was any streamer that I was supporting. I don't bother supporting anyone trying to find "get partnership quick" methods. If you want to build a business out of streaming video games , then please don't bother viewbotting. You'll eventually find you wasted your money and your community will likely abandon you. However, if you feel that someone is viewbotting, here's a few ways you can tell someone is

Twitch Los Angeles Meetup: One of the Best Events, Period

I'm kind of in awe. About two years ago, I attended a Twitch Los Angeles Meetup in Burbank. Back then it was still named Twitch Hollywood. But I knew I wanted to be a part of this because it was all about Twitch, video game livestreaming , and enjoying ourselves as gamers. Our last event, Saturday February 8th, was one of the best events I've ever been a part of. Small enough that plenty of folks knew each other, but large enough that we got deserved attention. Red Bull , Voodoo Ranger Beer , Need for Kneading , Twickle , artists, all sorts of companies came out. It was a fantastic night. We had a wonderful venue, the Hungarian Cultural Arts Center in Los Angeles. There were a few mishaps with moving in, but thankfully we were able to clear out whatever the previous guests were doing. Which strangely had to do with setting a bathtub on fire. People lined up around the block after parking about a mile away. We didn't think we'd get the attention

Cyberpunk 2077: What Else Are We Talking About?

CyberPunk 2077: Meeting My Expectations I avoided the hype. Stuck to what I understood about CD Projekt Red. Recognized that this was an 8.5 year development. Didn't stick to the lore. And admittedly, Cyberpunk 2077 met my expectations which, to be transparent, weren't all that high. The first demo I saw at E3 was arguably the worst demo I've ever seen—unresponsive AI, a crash mid-demo, and a poorly-matched pair of people representing the game—and so I felt a lot of problems might carry forth into the finished game. Whether or not I could stream the game on Twitch was also a concern, because if a game is going to launch poorly, you won't be getting much of an audience either. Sure enough, Cyberpunk 2077 launched unfinished. 8.5 years is a long time for a single release, and at that point, you have to wonder what's cooking in the kitchen. But I'll approach the most important question about the game that's on a lot of peoples'
