      Hey everyone!


      We have some awesome news to share with you!


      We will be doing our annual Extra Life stream on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, from 10am-10pmCST! We will be streaming on our youtube channel, so go ahead and subscribe to it so that you don't miss a moment of the action!


      We're raising money for St. Louis Children's Hospital in St. Louis, MO. Extra Life provides funding to help cover things that may not be covered by conventional medical care. At St. Louis Children's Hospital, that means funding art and music therapy. It also means funding Healthy Kids Express, which is a service that goes out to underprivileged kids, who otherwise may not be able to access this level of direct health care in their areas.


      If you want to help us fund these awesome programs, here is how you can help:

      1) You can donate RIGHT NOW! CLICK HERE!

      2) Want something back for your donations? Fair enough! Proceeds from the sales of the #ForTheKids2018 and BIGBITE Gold collections in our shop for the entire months of November and December go to fund this Extra Life mission! CLICK HERE TO CHECK THEM OUT!

      3) Tell your friends, your family, your roommate, your neighbor, your dentist, your arch nemesis, tell everyone!!! Help us spread the word about this, and get them to watch our stream on the 3rd of November!


      Thanks for helping us raise this money #forthekids!

    • UPDATE: Block Party Stretch Goals

      7 months ago

      ICYMI, we hit all of our stretch goals for our Block Party stream! So here's what's coming:

      -BTS video from the stream

      -A Rainbow-Headed Chii (video/face cam on in at least one upcoming Let's Plays)

      -Gratuitous violence directed at Joe's TV. (video)


      We'll get these videos out in as timely of a manner as possible, but please be patient, especially on the last two. A rainbow dye job is not done cheaply, and we're waiting for a nice weekend to shoot the TV Smash video (plus, we're waiting on something special to come in for it!).
