Quick note - the rebranding of my online profiles is well underway, and the majority of it is complete.

The incredibly talented Reuben Farley (check out his website) has created a bunch of new graphics for me, including a profile picture and all sorts of other stuff, and I'm so excited about it!

Now, this is only the beginning, and more graphics will come, along with smaller tweaks across my profiles on various social media platforms. It's gonna be great!

In relation to this, I will be holding an event on my stream in the very near future (weekend, mayhaps?) with a giveaway! Possibly some other exciting things, who knows?

The Dark Tower, my arse...
OK, first off: I apologize. This post is gonna be the first in a while (as per usual standard, eh?), and I am going to use it to bitch and whine.

Having read the entire Dark Tower series by genius author Stephen King, I was really looking forward to watching the relatively new movie of the same name, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey (yes, I had to look up the name to get the spelling right). Also a short appearance by Dennis Haysbert, whom for some reason I always mistake for Denzel Washington - no matter, Haysbert is a good actor too.

Anyhow, with an amazing novel/series at its back and what I'd say is an above average cast, one would expect a good movie, right?...

No Drama Crew
It's no secret that I've wanted to build a community for a while now, starting with the creation of a TeamSpeak server open to the public. Now I've decided to go all in on the project, with the main reason for this being that I want to build it up on something different than my own name and "brand". I don't want this community to be centered around myself but around the people apart of it.

Obviously, with it being a clan, the main part is to band together a group of people who like to hang out and play games together. But the vision of the clan is to include a much larger amount of people, bidding everyone (18+) welcome to the community.

In a way, when...

7 Days to SURVIVE
Alright, so I've been messing around a lot lately with my stream settings, not quite understanding why my stream has been of such ruddy quality lately. I have a fairly decent - if not above average - hardware setup, and great bandwidth, so I felt like my stream quality should be pretty good, but it remained laggy and overall poor, unwatchable actually.

Long story short, it turned out that a service on my PC (MSI ActiveX Service, no less!) was hogging about 50% CPU which, besides the games' ressource usage in itself, left very little for stream encoding. But having disabled that, after confirming that it wouldn't cause issues with a bit of online research, I tested again...

For real, though?
Oh wow. More than 6 months of absence from posting on my own damn blog!? That's embarrassing, quite frankly.

But, truth be told, there hasn't been all that much to tell. Work has been keeping me crazy busy, but recently I've once again found time to be gaming. Not a lot, as of yet, but I try to put in time on both YouTube and Twitch, mainly the latter. I do however feel that I need some new games to be playing on there. Also lost a bit of momentum on YouTube after I realized, that I probably won't be able to obtain the games needed to fulfill the series (the old Harry Potter games).

That being said, I've opened up a channel of communication with everyone...

YouTube negligence
Hello all. I just realized that I've actually been neglecting my YouTube videos a bit lately.. I am sorry about this.

I'd like to try and explain this, as it has actually been a somewhat deliberate - if subconscious - decision on my part. I have been hanging out on TeamSpeak for a while now, making new friends and playing lots of games online. Also I've focused quite a lot on making a new forum layout for the Zero Fucks clan (known mainly for the YouTube videos of one SovietWomble), and I'm quite happy with the result! You can check it out HERE.

While you as a YouTube viewer don't really get to enjoy that directly, you actually might in the future, as I feel...
