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.

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 we did. Three weeks before the…

Project Tempo: Amazon's Answer to a Cloud Gaming Service

Amazon's Answer to Stadia: Project Tempo, Their Cloud Gaming Service
It wasn't even a week ago that I thought about how Amazon might respond to Google's foray into gaming. The videogame livestreaming giant doesn't really hold a candle to the likes of Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, or (now) Google when it comes to video games. There was Breakaway, a project that was abandoned, and on the horizon, there's New World and Crucible. If that's the launch lineup for Amazon in the coming years, it pales in comparison to Google's cloud gaming service and the current library it has to offer.

But recently, Amazon announced its Project Tempo, a gaming service that seeks to rival against Google Stadia. In the age where dopamine and serotonin are linked to instant gratification, this is a welcome announcement from Amazon, a company that has dominated livestreaming since its acquisition of Twitch TV in August of 2014. And it's pretty obvious why Amazon could easily fight …

Alien Isolation: Jumpscares and I Don't Mix

Alien Isolation Jumpscares If you know me well, you know that I am an incredibly jumpy person. Even a host on my Twitch channel often makes me jump and rear my arm back in defense against...a sound. But that unfortunate disposition hasn't been abundantly public until I played Alien Isolation. JFC, I nearly punched my equipment several times avoiding the alien in that game. As much as the game makes me jump like a 5-year old, I enjoy every minute of it and regret that I hadn't purchased it sooner. I actually downloaded it from the Xbox Game Pass. I think it's a fantastic deal for 15 dollars a month since a lot of titles are swapped in and out.
Regardless, my absolute horrid sensitivity to in-game sounds (even non-jumpscare moments make me jump) often serves as a point of entertainment for people on the Twitch channel. In the very beginning moments of AI, I rarely could relax. Puckered butthole? Indeed. Streaming Alien Isolation has been a treat, and for multiple reasons.

A…
