    • Living The Stream...

      9 months ago

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

      The streaming has continued. Some of the rough edges are getting a little smoother. There are things I will improve on but I am getting more comfortable. 


      The hardest part for me is picking the games. I am trying to find the right balance of games I want to play and can make for entertaining content. Right now I have been treading water with the Saints Row series (finished 2 and am playing 3 now). I have my eye on Red Dead 2 at the end of the month.  


      I am flying through SR3, so I may need to figure out something else to hold me over. I really should look into a more efficient way to pick the games. We'll see. 


      Name is MikeyTKO on twitch. I usually stream for a couple hours on the weeknights (been taking Wednesdays off) @7-7:30pm on the weekends I stream for longer and usually get going after lunch (2:30/3:30). Stop by and say hey if you think about it. 



    • Well That Was Scary/Fun

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

      Last night I tried out my first Twitch stream. It wasn't good... but I loved it.


      Still working a lot of things out and trying to get them more customized but I like where this is headed. Granted, I am not really good at video games but I am choosing to embrace the other side of it all. 


      Frankly, my favorite streamers/content creators are those that are having the most fun while they play their game of choice. We'll see how this goes... now I just need to figure out what to play.

    • The Green Mountain Adventure Challenge

      1 year ago

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

      This Memorial Day weekend I will be headed to a small town in Vermont near Mount Snow for the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge


      BUT MIKEY??! WHAT'S THAT?! 

      I'm glad you asked.The simplest way to describe this challenge is -  it is a hiking trip combined with an escape room on steroids. The challenge changes every year. Last year started with a page from a newspaper, which we used to figure out locations that we'd need to hike to. There we'd find items that would help give us information to unlock other things in the adventure and keep us running around.


      There was a lot of time thinking, brainstorming, trial & error and just talking out the same information. Everyone says this about the adventure and I will also echo it - YOU WILL GET FRUSTRATED... but it is that frustration that makes the achievement of solving it so much greater.


      That being said, less than 1/3rd finished last year. This year is suppose to be more difficult.


      The challenge runs from the Friday before Memorial Day through Labor Day. You can't start and finish the challenge anytime in that window. You can go in Friday, do all the hiking problems and then take the "puzzles" home with you until you figure them out (hopefully before Labor Day). 


      The link above has all the information. If this sounds like something that would interest you I highly recommend it. For some reason I feel the need to tag @burnie because I would assume this is down his alley. 



    • Any Tips?

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

      Been doing pretty well at the getting up every work day and working out in the morning. Anyone have any tips for staying motivated for getting out of bed? I am trying to make it a habit but sleep is just so amazing...


      I have had some luck with doing Fit Bit competitions - knowing I have to get up or I am going to get embarrassed in the competition. Not sure that is sustainable though... 

    • Shape it up...

      1 year ago

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

      Time to lose some weight (or just thin out).


      I have two major steps in my plan -  First is to get back to running. I walk to work every day which has helped me maintain an OK weight but I could be better. During the week I get my 10k steps a day on my FitBit - but it's time to up that number to at least 15k. (Feel free to add me on FitBit if you are on there - might need my email)


      Second step - minimal alcohol consumption. I was making it a little too easy on myself to have a drink or two after work and even more so on the weekends. What can I say, bottomless mimosas at brunch are dangerous. 


      I feel like all weight loss is about self control. So let's get this under control.

      I come through here often and start posts but I feel like every time I come here to post it would be some sort of vent session. I try to hold back on that.


      While I don't have much to say at the moment - I am still around and lurking on all you terrible/lovable people.

      In a little over a week - I will be getting married! matt

      I haven't put too much of my personal life out here over the last few years but I wanted the RT Community (that still checks this anyway) to know the good news. 


      On the 1st of the year, Rachel and I head off to St. Lucia for our destination wedding. We have about 25ish people coming down to celebrate with us. It's gonna be fantastic.


      The official date is Friday the 5th. Gotta have my January wedding.  heart


      Miss you all. We should totally hang out soon.

      With the release of The Disaster Artist, discussing The Room seemed necessary. Now here I am, sitting on set for a commercial production in Vancouver, and in the downtime 8-10 people (including the VP of my team) are watching The Room and unloading questions at me,



      RT Movie Nights... you gave me a gift.

      I almost took a job at my friends company that does KILLER exhibit design. But it was a management/sales position and not so much design.

      Anyway, what I mean to say is, shut up.

      MIKEY.

      New mic sounds great. Buuuuuuut.

      On the last two podcasts, it's gotten super hard to hear you at some times. I don't know if that's on my end, or what. But if it's a desk mic, that would make sense (as you got quieter when writing things down for the gauntlet episode)

      HOLD STILL.

      GEEZE.
