Livestream? On my internets?

If you have absolutely nothing better to do than struggle to hear what I'm saying while I play games, check out my Livestream Account!

I have since adjusted my mic settings to record louder, so if you can't hear me... well, neither can I, and the next videos will hopefully be more audible.

I have some videos of me doing my Icecrown dailies and Heroic Deadmines on World of Warcraft (albeit being EXTREMELY tired and failing miserably in said Heroic.)

Enjoy, if watching this stuff is your kind of thing.

And... STALKER and Livestream don't get along. I get 1 fps if I try to record it, so don't count on it anytime soon.

The Creepy Door

Making this, I learned some valuable lessons.#1. You need a different recording program for games
#2. Windows Movie Maker is stupid and doesn't put your clips in chronological order
#3. My mic sucks... really, REALLY badly.
#4. Making captions for a YouTube video requires a complicated AND separate program, but annotations (which is almost the exact same thing) don't
#5. Barrels, fetuses, fire, and the military aren't a good mix

But yeah... this was made for my boyfriend, so he could see how creepy this portion of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl is.
I am very well aware that I sound like a complete idiot. 
My mic is terrible and makes me sound like something was jammed into my sinus cavities.
 I also get nervous when I'm being recorded... 
or when somebody calls me over to their laptop to say hi to someone on Skype... 
or when I had to perform something on stage in elementary and middle school...
or when I have to present something in front of a class...
...I am horrible at public speaking.

Well, enjoy it for what it's worth... which is nothing. :P

I am the pure essence of laziness.

I haven't updated in forever...
Why is that?

Well, for starters, I am a lazy, lazy person.
Every time I go on the computer, I immediately gravitate towards games, leaving behind any blog-related activity in the dusty corners of my mind.

I -was- hoping to update more often now that I have an iPod Touch, but I discovered that Apple is an eeevil and diabolical company, and does not offer a Blogger app for download.
Gawd forbid they offer something Google-related.

I guess I could try using the email-based blogging feature, but that seems like a complete pain given the awful touchscreen on the iPod.
Yes, I know it's a good touchscreen compared to others, but I think all touchscreens are awful...

I will try to update more... or at least that's what I keep telling myself.
One thing is for sure...
I don't want this blog to die.
It may not be anything big or special, but I really want people to have a place to get updates about new Etsy postings and such.

Look for at least ONE new update in the next coming days.
I promise at least one.
