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?...

So yea, I've been gone from this site for quite a while. And not only here, but YouTube and Twitch as well. I'd like to use this post to talk a little bit about stress.

I got hit pretty hard by stress after starting my new position at work. There was so much new stuff to learn, innumerable responsibilities and tasks that had to be done. Young and almighty as I was, I tried to take it all on pretty much at the same time, tossing in a load of hours after work to get through it, thus only rarely taking time off for some R&R. Of course this went just fine for a while, but then I started to take caffeine and other kinds of energy suppleants just to get through the day, because...

New microphone (and Italobrothers)

Today I just wanted to share a bit of news that I'm very excited about! A few days ago, I got a new microphone, the omnipresent Blue Yeti that is basically (from what I understand) the single most used microphone among YouTube and Twitch gamers. Having tried it out, I can absolutely understand why. The sound quality is simply amazing, especially compared to what I was coming from - which I actually thought was pretty decent! So now it's even more fun for me to do videos when I watch them back afterwards. I hope you'll appreciate this major increase in microphone sound quality as much as I do!

On that note, I started playing The Talos Principle today, and it really seems...

Hey everyone! I know I've been absent from posting here on my blog, but things have been crazy busy the last couple of weeks. Let me give you a quick run-down of what's been happening:

First off, I've been promoted at work to take over a colleague's position after he stopped on June 30th. It basically means that I went from being in our IT-support to being our systems administrator with responsibility of our entire infrastructure, all our applications and hardware in both our main office, central warehouse and webshop warehouse. So the time until my colleague stopped was pretty much full of me having to learn all he knew, which was near an impossible task in just a...

Hey everyone, I am back home, and of course that warranted a bit of celebration by getting a new Let's Play video online! Part 3 of my Let's Play The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition is now available on YouTube right here. Before making this video, I went ahead and moved my microphone around a bit, so the sound quality should have improved quite a bit - well, as much as one can expect of an older, not-so-high-end microphone. At least I can tell there's a difference, and I hope my viewers can too!

This isn't actually gonna be a long post, but there is one thing I'd like to mention, that I am quite excited about:

At work I will likely be tasked with...

So my dad and his new wife went on a well-earned vacation, and I've been asked to watch their two dogs. This means that I'm away from home since yesterday, Thursday, and until Tuesday next week. What this also means is that I am away from my gaming computer, and as a direct result, I cannot record any new gaming videos. So my YouTube channel is going to be a bit quiet until at least Tuesday, maybe even Wednesday, but I will definitely return and post more videos from my playthrough of The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition!

On another note, while I'm at my dad's place, I'm basically binge watching YouTube videos of a guy that I have started to see as kind...

A wedding!?

So today I was invited to this semi-copper anniversary at my dad's and stepmom's. For those of you who are unaware of what a copper wedding anniversary is all about, it is when a couple has been married for 12.5 years. However, my dad and stepmom weren't married, so it was more just a celebration of them being together for 12.5 years.

It started off at noon, and everyone was gathered in the backyard for welcome drinks and greetings. It was great seeing the people there again, as I hadn't seen many of them in a long while. However, the event took a completely unexpected turn when this happened:

A priest(!) walked into the backyard along with two guys carrying...
