      ...and Forgotten has come back in  a good way. 


      So over 7 months ago I had opened up a tee public merch page to start promoting SSN channel. Well after the super long hiatus I'll be honest, I totally forgot about it. 


      That was until today. Earlier in the evening I received an e-mail stating that sale was made. Literally blew my mind. Someone since watching the well I'm willing to call it the resurrection of the channel has decided to purchase a shirt. 


      I am flabbergasted. To whoever that individual might I want to say thank you. You've helped stoke the fire in me to push for better  and greater things for Select Start Network. 

    • Goodbye First Semester....

      Larcher Chunky Monkey

      ... And hello second Semester.


      Next week I start my second semester of my first year of college life. A 29 year old married man finally realizing what he needed to do to get his life in order.


      I'm thinking of adding something extra to this week's very cut short podcast (due to technical difficulties) that'll touch on this. If you guys have any questions about anything please let me know here or you can send me a tweet over at twitter.com/SSNLarcher .


      But in the meantime here's my final assignment I had for the first semester a mini narrative called: Next Contestant.


      They might not be on this site but I still have to thank Liberty, Colin and Cole for being my Cast and Crew and helping create something I can be proud of. 


      Enjoy nd TTFN




    • The Whole Fuckin' World's...

      ...Against us dude, I swear to God. 


       So small venting time here. Tonight was supposed to be the return of the SSN podcast, I had quite of few people say they couldn't make it but Lib was there so we decided to try our hand at a two man crew. 


       I'd love to say we knock that shit out of the park. We covered all technical hiccups, figured out the audio issue and got a very nice two shot of us for the pod. We didn't have a crew to do a multishot but we had that shit on lock down. 


      Then came to the recording....the fucking recording. We have it set up so the feed from the studio is recorded to one of the edit suites. Unfortunately for us that bitch had like 20 gigs left and cut our hour and a half show into 16 minutes.


      AND TOP IT ALL OFF THE FUCKING AUDIO AND VIDEO IS OUT OF SYNC. 


      Still going to release what we have with a video explaining what's happening. I'll try and see if I can sync the audio and video up. Such a damn shame.  

    • Extra Curricular...

      ... Activities.


      So I've been fortunate enough to have a bunch of passionate kids at my college who are okay with having this old mad man with these plans of grandeur around them. They been helping out with keeping SSN (Select Start Network) afloat with doing the podcast and we tried a Let's Play that didn't work out due to some extra folks stepping in and not really.....doing anything. 


      But that hasn't stopped us yet. I mentioned to them that we should start doing Live Action Shorts to A) help them find their style and motivations B) practice because you can only get better with that. C) Build a Portfolio they can be proud of and also C) a selfish one but once again have more content on the channel. 


      They all seem on board with this idea and we'll be moving forward with it next weekend. I've got two scripts I have to flesh out and a mini series I'd like to see if they'll be on board. 


      If we get permission with the latter I'll let you know ASAP. 


      P.S.

      I'll be posting my last project I did on monday and the interview I shot with my fellow students.

      Exciting times.

      ...Percent done with this semester. 


      I just got my critiques in for my final project which is getting graded by three professors for three of my classes. 


      All in all it was just tightening up a few shots and then a nice long conversation about how I did my After effects intro. I just have no add in my 10 seconds of slate (basically a generic title screen that talks about the run time, date it was made and who it was produced by) and my 10 seconds of black before the project starts. 


      Once i'm done rendering that I'll upload the video to the SSN website to show to whoever's interested. Might be upload some for my fellow students there as well. Should be fun.

    • Finals week...

      1 year ago

      Larcher Chunky Monkey

      ...officially started this week and thanks to the strike everything's been kicked into overdrive. All projects, exams and essays are all due this week. The program normally has finals for two whole weeks but I think thanks to the strike we had they're trying to get it all done now and have us start the second semester almost immediately. 


      I haven't been overly stressed about any of the work that we've done but I think it's also thanks to the music I listen to. 


      Being a fan of Supernatural (TV Show) I've come to know and love the song Americana by the show's first composer Jay Gruska. It's help me stay calm and focused. I can literally have this thing on repeat for an entire night. Might drive everyone else in the hotel crazy but for myself it becomes the greatest background noise. 


      Everything else just fades away and it's just me and my studies/projects. Have a listen, I promise you won't regret it. 


      Wondering too if any of you guys have something that helps you focus or stay on track?

      GIVE ME YOUR ANSWERS!

    • A man between...

      ... Two Worlds. 


      I've been finding myself in these very strange predicaments lately. I get a craving to play some PUBG but don't feel like getting my as kicked and at that moment one of the streamers I sub to goes online and play said battleground. I want to play the game...but I also want to watch someone else play it. 


      SO CONFUSED!

    • Waste Not..

      1 year ago

      Larcher Chunky Monkey

      ...Want not.


      So it's January 1st, My month of Detoxing is over. What have I learned from this?


      Well for starters that I can go to a party dry as a bone and still enjoy myself. Never thought I'd be able to sit or talk to a bunch of drunk  let alone young drunk people and still enjoy myself. 


      That I really don't need junk food but ffffffuuuuuuuck it's hard. There is something gratifying about being able to grab a bite to eat after a long day of school, podcasting, let's playing. Alsop being in an apartment with no oven means I'm stuck with sandwiches, tv dinners and free breakfast.


      I don't miss the taste of any alcohol. I really thought I was going to struggle with not wanting a taste of something but in all honesty I just consumed a lot of water and I was fine. 


      Mind you I am finishing a 1500 ml bottle of sparkling wine. The only reason I am is because I paid money for this and no one else had some. 


      I think after this experiment I'll be bale to greatly reduce the junk I eat and keep my drinking to special occasions only. 2018 is going to be a very interesting year. 

    • A Goal on this site...

      1 year ago

      Larcher Chunky Monkey

      ... For the longest time was to become a Featured User. I used to post like a mad man on the forums, post journals literally about nothing and constantly reply to people's posts, images, journals. You know name it I did it. 


      Now....I kind of miss that push I had. It's how I met quite a few of my friends on here. @pak78 @baggins316 @malduck. It's how I got brave enough to go on webcam during Barbara's tinychat and struck up what I think ended up being a 2.5 hour conversation between@Dopp and @Fireball. 


      I really owe this site/company/community a lot. It's thanks to everyone here that I even started filming shorts or let's play. Create websites that mimicked the earlier version of the RT site. The countless Podcast/show ideas I've made or merch I helped create. The very core of me, my likes, dislikes, sense of humour  and so much more stems from me spending the now almost 10 Years of my life on this website. 


      Whelp this is not what I thought I was going to write up today. Kind of just opened the flood gates and this came out. 


      I'm happy with the results. 


      P.S.

      Writing Journals rocks way more than tweets. 

    • I'll be home...

      ...For Christmas,


      So I decided that even though I still had a week of classes, that I wanted to see my family more. So I surprised them and showed up Monday night. Still have some assignments, quizzes and research papers due but my god it feels good to be home. 


      Also jumped to a new academy for the time I'm down since they offered me free training. 

      It's clear that it's been a very long time since I've done any kind of combat sports training. Body felt exhausted just after the warm ups. Loved every second of it. 


      Going back for more during the week.


      I've also had to re-upload Episode 3 of the SSN podcast thanks to it's extremely low audio levels. Will by up and running in no time though. 


      Anyone else have plans for the holidays?

      Maybe you twisted your ankle really badly at one point? My roommate recently broke/torn ligaments in her foot and doesn't need surgery or a cast, but she's doing a lot of hobbling around. You can break stuff in your feet and ankles seriously easy.

      CAN'T WAIT FOR YOUR UP THE NOSE STORY!!!

      I wish there was an RvBAZ so you could would have to come here and crash at my place and see the desert.

      not a clue about swords.

      You can get a somewhat realistic looking airsoft gun at walmart - just spray paint it black. But be sure to spray paint the tip orange after whatever you do. I believe it's a federal offense to keep a fake gun tip not sprayed orange.

      For gi, something that's been working for me is a string of setups.

      First I i get an under hook wizzer on a guy and frame out with my other hand. I pull down an the under hook side and push with the frame side against the guys throat. This won't submit, but will cause discomfort. Try to bridge toward side you have underhook wizzer on, this sill either sweep or cause the guy to come down hard with his head to your chest to push you down. Its uncomfortable for him and puts him in the position you want.

      Or you can start from right here

      Once his head is on your chest, the real work begins! Now just let go of the frame/underhook.
      and with the frame arm hold his head to your chest with the crook of you elbow. You wanna squeeze don hard. With your other hand(the one that had the wizzer) go thumb in and grab the top of the gi and hold his shoulder down w you elbow (your whole arm will be above his shoulder at this point). With the arm that has his head pinned down, grab some shoulder gi below ur other arm. Now let the arm that's holding him down slide while you lay down on the hip of your opposite side. This will give him space to pop his head up (you want this) Now in one motion switch to laying on your other hip while throwing you thumb in side arm over his head. You should have a pretty good gi choke set in on the guy about now. How you want to finish this choke is to pull his head down and you will you hip escape/shrimp your butt to the opposite side you have thumb in collar. It's a blood and air choke and if you pop it fast, the guy's "Oh Shit" meter will go off and you'll get a fast tap. Otherwise, wait 30 sec and he'll go to sleep! smiley0.gif

      Contest, eh?

      This idea was inspired by me watching the edited-for-television-version of Kill Bill. I was kind of appalled by the words they chose in lieu of profanity.

      Like "My name is Buck and I came to fuck I like to party"

      Ghastly.

      I'd say give the swag to the person who finds the most egregious television edit of a movie. Like, really bad. Like, it changes the entire movie.

      Reasons to have a contest:

      1. Things to do when you're bored out of your skull in class.

      2. Best drawing of you!

      3. Best advice for anything. ever.

      4. Best Gary Busey shoop (though there's a thread for this somewhere, so people may not even have to work at it.)

      5. Award to the person to get me off my ass and send you this damn mix cd!!!

      6. Award to the person who makes you laugh the hardest.

      7. Random gift is random.
