I’d Much Rather Talk About Gaming, Wouldn’t You

I did NOT feel like puking this morning when I woke up, but, sadly, it’s because I woke up from a nightmare.


But first the news:

I also went to bed at NINE instead of 21:30 ish and when the alarm went off this morning at I don’t know o’clock I turned it off IN MY SLEEP.

Apparently if I’m not listening to my body, my body takes over.

Star Wars! Tonight!! !

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Thirty Three]

If you haven’t already, I would absolutely LOVE twenty-eight more subscribers on my channel which is currently https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCs4OeYtPTy-PkZmPEceEsdw/ but which I would love to get a vanity link which I can only get if I have one HUNDRED beautiful fabulous EXQUISITE subscribers.

I’m looking at you, Facebook Friends, because Facebook REALLY doesn’t allow interaction outside of Facebook.


But first the news:


I’m super chuffed to play UNLOCK!

The Escape Game by Space Cowboys!

Who just released a STAR WARS game!

Holy Hell, Today

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Thirteen]

I submitted a code for Equinix’s virtual hackathon. And spoke at Fedora Women’s Day about being non-binary and talking about mental health and my Fedora story. And then I streamed a new escape room game.

It’s time for bed.

But first the news:

Vlogging vs Streaming

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty Six]

The edit.

That’s it.

The difference between vlogging and streaming is editing.

But first the news:

Streaming media is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb to stream refers to the process of delivering or obtaining media in this manner. Streaming refers to the delivery method of the medium, rather than the medium itself.

On Saturday night I’ll do a stream where I’ll do an escape room – edited, LIVE, and I guarantee I’ll mess up. Start over. Fix things on air.

And be VERY human.

A video blog or video log, sometimes shortened to vlog, is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts.

On SUNDAY I’ll edit that the stream from Saturday night to do a highlight reel. It’ll go from a little over an hour to a minute or two in length. There will be no bloopers unless I purposefully leave them there.

And, if I want to, I’ll seem More Human Than Human.

But I Just Wrote A Post Nine Hours Ago

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty One]

Writing one article right before bed and then another right before getting out of bed SUCKS.

But first the news:

I’ve got thirty SIX subscribers on YouTube!! !

Only sixty four more to a pretty link!! !

But, more importantly, I read “How to Shoot Video That Doesn’t Suck” – not just that trailer, but the whole book.

Get ready for some hopefully not as suck videos!
