      Bismillah,


      First of all...Capcha.  Ok, I think we're done here.


      Now, there's been a lot going the last week or so. let's see if I can sum it up.


      Last Friday, finally convinced a good friend of mine to come visit me in Houston.  Haven't seen him since 2010 and was happy to have him over. He does a lot of charity stuff and travels around the world, so it was hard to get him to come by, but he did. It really says something about the quality of a friend when you still stay friends even after a decade.


      Next day, my uncle and his wife came to visit us as well. He's the living personification of Robert DeNiro of our family, so that was fun too.


      Sunday was spent going out and hanging out with my friend. I realize that these outgoings become more of a special event the more and more I get older. Kinda sounds sad now that I think about it.


      Monday, I go in for nose surgery. Found a problem that affected my breathing, so went in to correct it. The doctors couldn't tell if I was already high coming in at 5:30 AM or not, since I just kept busting jokes and acted like I wasn't even having surgery. Just between us: I was nervous as hell. I hate hospitals and I hate needles even more. Almost passed out from the IV itself, no joke!  The only consolation was that I didn't feel time at all once I was under and only found myself waking up in bed at home. but, I did leave the hospital in the wheelchair with my arms spread out doing airplane noises.  NOW THAT'S HIGH!


      Tuesday, went to another doctor to have a look at an MRI of my lower back injury.  good news, its not worth surgery. just some physical therapy and probably a better mattress to help. Didn't vote that day, because I voted early so I already had that checked. Spoiler warning: my candidate didn't win.


      Wednesday, took my wife to her doctor for checkups.


      Thursday, same thing, except this time to examine her wrist problems.


      Friday, went to nose doctor to have my sutures taken out. Breathing was a nightmare and I refused to see what was taken out of my nose by then.


      Also, I quit my Job on Friday. There are companies out there that give you shots and breaks and help you out, and then there are companies that expect you to worship the ground they walk on and be greatful for them hiring you in the first place. My last job was the latter. The only thing I am willing to say is that if you ever hear the name "Wipro" anywhere, run the other way. unless you're deep deep deep dead desperate for a job, then go work for McDonald's.


      There is a consolation for all of this though, I did land another job. One with a certain type of table game and certain type of creatures of the night types of people.


      It0MTXJ.gif


      Actually, no, its another IT job, but better than working for Wipro.


      So...yeah...spent almost whole week in hospital after hospital after doctor after doctor. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot...I'M A DAD NOW!!


      Allow me to introduce my young lad, Zaid.


      k14ydUY.jpg


      Born a healthy 3.6 Kilos SHUT UP AND LEARN METRIC on October 26th with lungs of fire and fury.  Funny story: My wife was basically in labor for about 12 hours, and we had a room with a TV in it. I managed to put my chromecast on their tv, use my old Galaxy S5 to change the channels of the TV to an HDMI input, and stream youtube videos while we sat there waiting. When my wife was finally giving birth to Zaid, and he came into our lives, only then the doctor noticed that I was streaming on their TV. I totally forgot I was doing that and he asked me, "Is that Red Dead Redemption 2 playing on TV?". That was kinda dope. My son was born into gaming from Second 1!!!!


      So, yeah, now my sleepless nights and diaper scented clothes pock marked with tiny dots of mysterious yellow are filled taking care of this little smurf/bean. The concept of fatherhood hasn't settled in yet, but I can totally say that I love this little guy with all my heart.


      Also, one last thing, I just heard after posting that Stan Lee has passed away.  The man is such a legend and an inspiration, and no matter how old and wise he may have been, he was still young at heart. A quality I hope to learn and retain for my children. Farewell Stan Lee...never has my heart truly ached for a loss of a celebrity as it shall ache for yours.

    • Still good after 20 years

      I remember this song sending shivers down my spine 20 years ago when I heard it through the low-quality, <140p, real player video file I copied off a guy who copied it off a guy who booted it somehow from somewhere and put it on a CD ROM SHUT UP you youngsters! The pain was real back in the day, yo!

      I remember trying to find a "full" version of this song on Napster and looking up the lyrics on Yahoo, but was always left wishing they made a more full-version of this song. 


      Well, TFS f-ing gone and done it! Even though its just their interpretation of the iconic song, it still sends shivers down my spine now.  One thing I have to be glad of in this day in technology, is that people with the SILLIEST of hobbies can find an audience who would back them up as long as they're really putting their energy into it. Gone are the days of corporate television and whoring yourselves to the Hollywood execs. 


      Anyways, here's the song. hope you all enjoy it.


    • T-minus 44 days...

      2 months ago

      madmanmoe

      I know I haven't been active much on here, but I still love coming over and reading and catching up with everyone on this site. It is why I prefer posting things like this here than on FB or Twit. 


      The thing is: Nothing really interesting has been going on in my life. There is work. There is the never-ending arguing about politics (yeah, fun, I know). There is family responsibility.  But there is something that's been baking in the background that I'm super excited about and I only off handidly mentioned here or there.


      So, here it is. The very first official announcement of mini baby me is due in just around 44 days! I'm gonna be a dad! ME! A guy who stuck with an internet anchor of MadManMoe for over 20 years is about to have a baby.


      "Okay, calm down there guy. Congrats and all, but everyone gets to have a baby eventually", said the voice inside my head. To which I respond with, "yeah, but does he know who his dad is gonna be?"


      THIS GUY!

      PNOJBwA.jpg


      I'm already planning all the initial Dragonball episodes i'm going to watch with him to teach him about the importance of friendship and martial arts. Eventually upgrade to the likes of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee. Come then put him in some martial arts schools and ensuring he learns Chinese. Fill his room with space stuff and stars and moons and planets. Schedule visits to the likes of NASA, observatories, and a couple of star wars conventions. 


      Basically, I'm planning on growing a literal ass kicking Arab astronaut who can speak Chinese. You know...aim low and build up from there.


      Anyways, kidding aside, this is pretty exciting and scary at the same time. As hyped as I am for the young lad, my body is working against me. Back and knee and shoulder injuries are making less mobile than I'd like to be. I'm trying to shape up to be able to handle the little monkey, but its gonna be tough. Not to mention all the other fears and responsibilities that come with fatherhood. 


      Speaking of fatherhood. I never could thank my dad for everything he ever did for me. I don't think I can ever repay him for as long as I live. So, I decided to give the first honor of naming my son to him, and he decided to name him Zaid. This is by no means payment enough to thank him for all he did for me, but I hope it brings him a morsel of extra happiness.


      So, God willing, in about 44 days, I hope to introduce Zaid to all of y'all and to the rest of this world. A new chapter is starting, and it's going to be interesting.

    • My E3 Impressions

      5 months ago

      madmanmoe

      Nothing really crazy to update wife five months preggo with boy, but wanted to just drop a vid of someone who can really express my impressions of E3 this year.



      The Summary is thus so:


      - Vastly dissapointed in Square Enix

      - Mildly impressed, but reserved, with Microsoft. They're taking the right steps in the right direction

      - Sony: By far the most interest with the likes of Spiderman, Ghost of Tsushima, Mother Flipping The Last of Us 2!!, and Death Stranding still looks weird as hell, but I'm interested!


      I have all the systems: I have the ps4 pro, xbox one, switch, and a gaming PC. Now, I'm happy that XB is getting its act together and bringing in more third-party developers as well as some more love for Japanese studios. Gears is really peaking my interest (more than GoW4). Ori gave me a hard on I'm not gonna lie. I flat out Yelled "Yes!". But, I'm not really sure about Halo. Right now, it is just my OCD that's telling me "I've played all the other parts, might as well play this one". But, to be honest, it doesn't show anything. So, to be fair, I can't judge it.


      That's all I can say about Xbox though. I can list on one hand the exclusives that matter.  I want XB to be better. I want better from XB, but I'm not getting it. That's why I invested in a PS4 Pro and not an XBOX. There was just no point. Their presentation was off the hook though! Much much better than Sony, and that's ok, but after today that doesn't matter.


      Sony...I don't have enough fingers.


      What do you guys think? What are you most excited about?


      Sorry for not posting in such a long time. Aside from busy work, taking care of the family, preparing for the new comer, and trying to learn new skills for the job market, I've been kind of down and depressed with current events both here and abroad. So, I don't like bringing them up here because that shit is depressing as hell and with high rates of Suicides lately, I think we can all use less depression and more happy fun times in our lives.


      Love y'all much.

    • Hello from Alaska

      madmanmoe

      Hey guys! I know I haven't been updating in a long time, and it is totally my fault.  To be honest, I haven't been in a sharing mood as of late. Not because I'm down or anything, just my writing quirk I gotcha MHA peeps has been on the low lately.


      So, here's a speedrun of what's been going on since...well I don't know when.


      sticker,375x360-bg,ffffff.u2.png

      I finally got the Visa for my fiance to come to the US. Its been a long haul since February with papers sent, papers sent back to me, papers sent back to immigration, papers for days and days and days and plane rides and hotels for weeks. But the end result is, she finally got it, and I'm stoked to finally get her here within the week if all goes well. Take THAT, Trump!


      POW.png

      I have been crazy busy at work. Apparently I'm being pushed more and more into the managerial role without anyone telling me and there are stupid things like spreadsheets, PTSD reports I think that's what they're called, right?, meetings, calendar scheduling, knowledge sharing, and other stupid adult stuff that is taking away my time from journalism and video editing. That's why my YouTube and Facebook channels have been lacking lately and I'm a bit sad that I'm adulting. Stupid adulthood.


      xwhoosh.png.pagespeed.ic.AzN8SLo9wo.png

      I gots me a Nintendo Switch! I got Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8, and my nephew was super excited to finally buy me a gift for once and got me Legend of Zelda for my birthday (which was this past 6th --coughcoughbirthdaydropcoughcough). I got so much games to play with now, but I have very little time to play them! Its a good thing I have a long flight ahead of me, that way I can catch up to my gaming.


      ...speaking of which


      sticker,375x360.png


      I've been in Anchorage, Alaska for the last three weeks doing some IT work for evil oil company corporation things that have been giving me my paychecks.  The trip had very little funs in it since the work we've been doing have been eating up all my time.  And by time, I mean 12-18 hour days--including weekends--getting rock people upgraded to the latest technology so they can look at rocks even more. GOOD TIMES!


      BUT, it is not all in vain as I have been able to do some looking around and hiking and climbing a bit.  below are some pictures, but if you want to see all the pictures, I highly suggest you check out the full album here.

      Can we have less of this ^, world, please? Seriously, there's been too much garbage and shit going on in the world and it is getting pretty tiresome.  I know its a total "lib" thing to wish-for-happiness-and-peace-all-around-in-a-world-that-is-constantly-in-perpetual-chaos, but it just seems like things are more nutty now than ever...right? Or is it just me?  Probably just me...I think...whatever.


      So how have you all been? I've been coming here here-and-there to check up on you all and I'm still glad to see the super community keeping this page alive. I feel bad for not contributing much, it's just life has me by the 'nads lately. I know everyone else has a life as well, and still have time to put in the site; that is why I applaud you guys for being super humans and strong dedication.  If more interesting things happen to me and in life in general, I'll be sure to share here with you all.


      PEACE!

    • Charity Streams?

      1 year ago

      madmanmoe

      Hello Everyone,


       So, due to the powers that be, I was graced with some steam codes and this time, they're horrific...literally.


        So I got some horror game codes, but unlike my last stop-drop-and-roll-out method of posting here for the fastest clicker to get it, I'm gonna do it a little bit differently this time. 


      This time, I want to give these codes out to people who do charity events or streams. Due to life pinning against the wall and uncomfortably pressing its pelvis on my backside, I'm not able to commit as much time as before on my streams--not like I had many viewers anyways. So I hope that these games can be some good to someone to raise something for people in need. Probably a very good way to kick off the charity during Halloween.


      So, if you or someone you know runs charity events, send a PM to me and i'll be happy to oblige. The only caveat is if used, they need to mention "MadManMoe" at least once. No need for a link. No need for a speech. No need for any additional plugs unless they want to. Just one mention of "MadManMoe" before the game starts will suffice.


      Thank you. Now, below, you will find the game available to give to streamers.

    • Am I alone in thinking Ben Afleck is done...

      1 year ago

      madmanmoe

      ...Playing Batman or any other superhero at all? It is no doubt that BvS was a bad movie, but a lot of people still think Ben is a good fit for Batman; and I disagree. 


      My problem with Ben is that he's just non-commited. Ben is just not a comic lover or someone who respects the material like Rayan Reynolds. Ok, ok, before you guys start throwing Patrick Stewart or Gal Gadot or other non comic-nerds actors out there who did the role justice...I get it. Yes, they did the role justice, but they respected the role and the character. That's why they did well in it.


      I just think Ben is more interested in making a name for himself than respecting the role. He wanted to be the next icon...the next wolverine...the next Jason Bourne. That's the problem, he wants to take on roles that just doesn't fit his persona. That's why he flip flops with the role of Batman. That's why he flip flops with directing, writing, producing batman which is now dead before beginning. His goal wasn't to respect the role, it was to make a name for himself.


      Look. I don't hate Ben. I like him, in his own way. When he's natural and plays his natural characteristic, he's great! He's a wiseass from Bawstun. He cracks jokes, and some can be dark. He can play serious, but street level serious and not superhero serious. I think the reason I really don't like him as Batman (from the beginning too...like...WAY before the first trailer even came out), is because it looks like it is a persona that is outside his character...and Ben doesn't do character change very good.


      Like, see, the below video...I LOVE BEN in this.  This feels natural, and he feels natural and he feels comfortable and comes out quite well. Him and Batman...not so much.


      Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but I've had a discussion of this topic with someone and it urked me so I wanted to know what you guys thought and whether or not you agree or think that I'm a fawkn douchebag who don't know nothin bout what he tawkin about?



    • RTX Chat with friends

      Hello lovelies! 


      Brain: Stop quoting gamegrumps!


      Never!


      Anyways, what's up everyone! RTX is literally right around the corner


      Deo5r.gif


      Brain: You can't literally have a date around a physical corner, genius!


      I Do what I want!  


      So, yeah, RTX. The wonderful people over at OCC and I are putting together a Skype call with our friends who can't join us at RTX this year to have a little chat.  We'll be seeing the likes of our resident Director @Ratatoskr

      OgUSTUm.jpg

      and many more.


      We especially hope to get our international lovelies...


      Brain: You're doing it again


      ...to join us on this call and just hangout and chat. Yours truly will be the tech guy and will try to livestream the event on YouTube should the internet spirits be kind to us during the event.


      Brain: You know they're gonna say why not just use DIscor--


      For reasons not attributing to our throbbing boners for everything Microsoft, we decided to use Skype because of the video option over Discord. Now, I know not everyone has Skype...for...odd...reasons, but anyways, I've put up a form asking everyone who wants to join in on the chat to please submit their Skype id so we can add them.  For the shy ones out there, you can simply watch the stream on my MadManMoe YouTube channel



      So please join us on the Skype call by entering your Skype ID below and we'll see you at RTX soon.  No specific date or time has been set yet, but we expect to do it sometimes Saturday afternoon to accommodate our friends overseas.


      Brain: Finally we're done with this damn essay--

    • Where the hell have I been?

      1 year ago

      madmanmoe

      Well, I'm still here! I know I haven't updated in a while, and it might look like I just dropped out of the RT scene, but I'm still here and I drop by every day to look up what people are doing. I do have to apologize though for the lack of contributions due to just so many things and one of which is just exhaustion. So, let's get started.


      First of all: Happy Eid. I know no one really here celebrates Ramadan, but we just finished fasting in Ramadan yesterday.  So now it is Eid (literally means holiday) and now I'm back to my regularly scheduled program. I say regular because for the last two weeks my day would go from 8pm to 5am a mix of breaking fast, some family time, and lots of prayers. 6am to 3pm i go to work, and 4pm to 8 i catch up on whatever little sleep I have left. So...exhausted.


      tenor.gif


      That aside, I've inexplicably picked up my YT channel with a vengeance for some reason, and that reason is Nier: Automata.  I did a playthrough of it previously and finished it in about 8-ish hours. I knew that there were different endings to the game, but I never knew that each playthrough is a literally a different playthrough every time and told from a different perspective.  So the umbrella game is one story, but you're seeing it from a different side and different person every playthrough. It's awesome and its the first playthrough I do in all English so check it out.



      Also, I'm still doing a ton of Overwatch. I just started playing with these groups of folks and its the most fun I've ever had on overwatch playing with them. It's just nothing but shenanigans, sex jokes, and flat out weirdness. You might know some of these people as @MrWartburg and Pauline @crofteria from the RT community.  It was good times.



      As for the life-stuff: I'm still working on getting my fiance over here. I got immigration papers to keep working on, but I'm keeping hopeful and optimistic. 


      I'm also looking for another job, and hope something big works out. In short, the IRS has hit my dad HARD after he retired. He just barely bought a house with his retirement when the IRS went after all that was left over and he's pretty much bankrupt. Aside from the 1500 bucks a month he gets from SS, I'm the only one who can support him, my mom, and my little sister now and that's been kinda tough. It is basically a big reason why I don't want to go out as much anymore or travel or anything so that I can support them. Also probably drowning myself in video games might be an indication that I'm affected mentally by all of this.


      mjpPm97.gif


      Finally, I am still super excited about RTX. Its the only trip I have scheduled and I've been planning this a long time. I don't believe I will be going there this time as a journalist, but I am bringing my camera and headphoens mic and will keep an eye out on things to shoot...with my camera...photography! Don't start getting weird ideas now damn it! But yeah, if you have any ideas of things to film, skits to play, pranks to pull, or just wanna say hi for an RT montage (HOLY SHIT THAT'S A GREAT IDEA), then feel free to drop me a line here or come over if you see me or whatever. It should be fun.  Last time I collaborated with @Ratatoskr and @LanceMowilos to do some fun things, and this is what we did.



      and this:


      So would totally love to make more collaboration work. If interested, give me a call.


      Yup, I think that pretty much sums it up. How are you guys doing?

      Been awhile, and I hope all is well with you and the misses. I saw this news report today and I hope all is well with any friends and family in the area: www.live5news.com/story/23980331/militias-attac...

      • vatazes FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        4 years ago

        Thanks! I think one of the best things is the mortgage payment is just a tad bit more than what we pay now in rent. And the house is in better shape than our current place, so the water and electric bills should be A LOT lower.

        We pre-ordered the Xbox One from Amazon and its a lot better than I thought it would be. I was a bit worried about the confusing reports from Microsoft itself, but seeing it in action... WOW. Other than getting used to how it works (a little different from the 360), its wonderful. We can control the TV with it, which is a perk when I'm busy and the kids are driving me nuts ;). It's made Skyping with the grandparents and other relatives a lot easier. The baby was in awe last night when we talked with her grandfather and she saw him on the TV. I think about the only thing I dislike about it, is the YouTube app. I liked that better on the 360. Easier to get around and organize things, find videos to watch, etc. On the One its just like the app they have for it on BluRay players, which stink. Unless you have it paired to a mobile device, its a worthless app.

        Have you been able to get one of the new consoles, or are you waiting/having to wait? have heard good stuff about the PS4 as well, but no games for it are catching my attention enough to want one.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        4 years ago

        Ah! That's great. I know what u mean about the rent. It's devastating. I hope things work out for you.

        Were you able to get your hands on any of the new ps4 or Xbox One Consoles?

        Its ok. I know things have been busy for you :). But yeah, things are going great. We're moving from one end of the state to the other. Trading foothills for beaches :). We managed to buy a house and are looking forward to that journey, especially for the kids. No more renting!

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        Big changes likes what Libya is going through, always come with growing pains. It will eventually work itself out, I just hope everyone stays safe until that happens. Keep positive (even if its difficult and it seems impossible).

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        4 years ago

        Hey Carrie. Thank you for your comment. Ya things aren't looking as good as I'd hoped there. It's really saddening. The government is absolutely useless right now and they have no control at all. My uncles are in Tripoli and they do nothing. I'm in Switzerland right now and honestly I want to change things there, but it's like everyone is grabbing at power and being absolutely selfish and power hungry. I hope something works out there.

        It's hard. I don't know to be honest.

        taco bell, midnight movies, mall closures at 10pm, chillouts downtown, etc...etc...etc...

        one thing i learned real quick about switzerland, they're unapologetically racist here. like, WOW racist. My wife is having a hard time as it is just with students and some professors with her Hijab (head scarf). its bizzarre. I mean, yeah there are some parts of the US that are backwards and racist...but those places are not really known for their higher education and multicultural collaboration. in swiss, its different. everyone is a (bill | mill)ionare with private jets and highly educated, yet unapologetically racist.

        ...i miss the US.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        5 years ago

        Its green, its pretty nice and cool in terms of the weather compared to Libya. but the thing that ticks me off is the fact that everything closes by 6:30 and good luck finding anything open on Sundays. I miss the Texacos and the WalMarts and 24-hour fast food of the the US. these guys here are not much into the night life (except clubs and bars ofcourse).

      • hatmadder

        6 years ago

        basically Russia is saying that the UN moving out of Syria is a bad idea. When all the while they have blocked any real attempt at ending what seems like is turning into a genocide in Syria.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        6 years ago

        hmm...the link doesn't seem to work. but i wouldn't be surprised anymore over what Russia does. I mean, just look at their current elections controversy. there's still so much soviet-style mentality thinking left in the kremlin its sick.

    • osiris32

      Hey bro, hope things are going well for you and yours. I was wondering if you could give your perspective on a news piece that I just stumbled on, which I'm pretty sure is mostly the peanut butter brownie batter that comes out of a cow's anus. But still, it's worth reading to see if the Syrian government is doing a little bit of underhanded propoganda:

      www.gagnauga.is/index.php?Fl=Greinar&ID=215

      Like I said, I'm pretty sure that it's less factual than Westboro Baptist Church's Guide to America, but since you are a lot closer and a lot more involved in the situation over there than some dumbass from the west coast of the US, I would love to hear your thoughts.

      And on a more happy note, good luck to your athletes in the Games!! I'll of course root for American athletes, but will take pride in the accomplishments of any athlete, regardless of their nationality.

      • osiris32

        No kidding!! I've been watching the diving competitions, the Chinese are like machines. And that girl in the 4x100 medley, damn, I'm pretty sure I could have water skied behind her. But that's what I love about the Olympics, is watching people push themselves to the utmost limits of their abilities, a true test of what a human being is capable of.

        And thanks for your insight, I just wanted a bit of confirmation that this was, in fact, a load of fetid dingo's kidneys.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        6 years ago

        Wooooow! Same old tape, same track, even the same crummy recording.

        You know its a huge load of crap when they start tacking in everybody as the perps. Alqaeda is in cahoots with Obama while their buddy Sharon is pouring them wine from their private stash funded from how much money they're getting from the wealth of oil Syria has. Give me a break.

        Finally, Syria has no worthwhile reserves to speak of to cause any of this. Their people are screaming and crying for help, asking "would you have helped if we had oil?"

        The only real terrorist there are Bashar and his goons. I personally know people affected by his reign. I personally see Syria refugees here in libya. They all concur that the monster must be removed. That soul-less punk in the interview will get his just deserve one way or another.

        On the lighter note, thank you for your kind wishes. It was great to see the new flag instead of that trashy green rag. Good luck to your teams as well, China is giving you guys a run for your money this year.
