      So whenever I get the chance, I'll start up my youtube channel again. I've been doing some tests in my spare time to see what setup I like. Since I don't have a professional mic, my Turtle Beach headset is working perfectly fine until for just starting. And the .5 megapixel webcam my computer already comes with is perfectly fine too unless I can figure out a way of using my phone to directly record video straight to my computer.

    • Something I find interesting about Flipboard

      For those of you who do not know what Flipboard is, it is a free news app that pulls current topics from a large variety of sources including Business Insider, Huffington Post, CNN, Fox, and other public sources.

      One of the features of Flipboard is the ability to create your own magazines by "flipping" an article and adding it to your own magazine. Currently I have 3: "Interesting Stories" for news articles that I find particularly interesting, "Other" for articles I like that don't really contain any news (like photos of glacial caverns), and "Read Later" which is self-explanatory.

      Now the thing I find interesting is that within the last week, 4 people have begun following 2 of my magazines. I think it's a little strange that 4 users I don't know are following magazined that are soley used for saving articles that I can reference later. Do they actually have an interest in the stuff I favorite or are they following them for the sake of following?

      I'm pretty sure that the (now former) Inside Gaming guys are the newest RT employees and are working at the new RT office in LA. Super excited about that.

      Clicky clicky clicky.

      So for anyone interested in the top 100 let's play channels, Tubefilter has apparently been doing this for a whle. They keep track of stats such as weekly and monthly views, growth, which channel is partnered with who, top trending games, demographics of which countries and MCNs placed in the top 100, etc. There are some very interesting stats. @Desayjin this sounds like something you might like.

      As everyone knows RT was recently acquired by Fullscreen. What may have slipped through the cracks, however, is Machinima is rebranding itself with a focus on helping develop upcoming Youtube channels. If you're up for a short read then here is a link to the LA Times article that briefly talks about it. If you want a further in depth look at what you can get depending on your success, click here to go to Machinima's site.

    • Making "friends" once again

      So I just finished my 2nd graveyard shift. I made new "friends" by refusing to sell a particular brand of cigarellos to a couple of guys because one of them didn't have his ID. One guy was so happy about me doing my job that he began yelling gibberish which I could barely understand through the glass doors. 5 minutes later another customer informed me he had shouted something about "Black Power" and probably some physical threats to go along with it.

      This week (Oct. 24-28) is the Deep Silver publishers sale. Deep Silver has made big titles such as the Metro, Saints Row, and Dead Island series. The biggest sale they have going on now (right now this very second, but not for long) is the entire Saints Row collection for $13.74. That's 49 items- Saints Row 2, 3, and 4, and any DLC that's came out for those games!

      I just found out that ComCast is trying to buy Time Warner Cable, the two biggest opponents against net neutrality.
      And my dog got into the garbage and ruined our new white comforter when she decided to chew on steak bones on top of it.
