Let me know what you think.

Webcams Ugh...

Image
Looking at various webcams. There are two that I've heard are good on YouTube, both from Logitech. One is the C920, which is the older model. The C922 is the newer of the two. 

I've seen some tests that show the prior 920 actually works better in some instances, but it could have been the location of it. 

The sharpness did actually seem better in the 922. 

so I'll have to think this through, perhaps a few more videos comparisons. 

There is another model from Logitech vloggers swear by titled the Brio. This is a 200 dollar web came, so I'll be holding off on that. 

Yeah. 

But the other two are more reasonably priced, and being I have a gift card from Best Buy, I'll probably be choosing one of those. 

Being the 920 is about 50, before tax, and the 922 is about 80, I just want to compare a tad more. But I'll probably go with the 922, being it can more than likely be tweaked and has more features. Though, sometimes the prior model can turn out to be better. 

Talk soon.

Altered Leaf

Image
Was able to snatch a little time before work at the cafe again. The design the barista handed me today was a nice little leaf. So I decided to
sip it from one side, then the other. Before I knew it I'd made it into a totally different work of art. 

Ok, I'm reaching here, but think about it. Sometimes tweaking certain aspects of life can make it better, and most of the time the whole process is free of charge. 

Unfortunately, thinking back now, I don't have a picture of the before. But it hit me as I was taking a seat about how how easy it is to alter your outlook, or mood, on the day. 

The thought sort of played off of yesterday's post about being different. Even though the leaf looks strange, doesn't mean the coffee isn't still good. And that leaf is beautiful in it's own way. Eye of the beholder and all that fun stuff. 

Well, I'm going to send myself a story. Should be a slow day at work. Going to try and get stuff done today. 

Talk soon.

Pet Sematary Reboot

Image
Join Gary and I today as we talk about the Pet Sematary reboot.

I even make a prediction at the end which movie I think we'll do better the Pet Sematary reboot or Child's Play Reboot.

Give it a listen, and if you like what you hear please subscribe.



What The

Image
Ok, what did they do to my coffee? It still tastes good, but I have this weird mangled leaf.

I guess you can say life is like that sometimes. It may not look so great, but it's still good.

Or great, even. 

Sometimes you look at other people's leaves, or life. And you think damn that looks good. But in essence they all look the same.

Then when everything seems about to go south, you look back at that coffee leaf and think that doesn't look so bad after all. Because it's yours. It may cant to the side a bit, and it's not perfectly formed, but that leaf is you and people know who you are when they see that leaf. Oops I mean life.

So yeah I'm going to drink this leaf, it doesn't look half bad. And the coffee is so good.

Talk soon.

Child's Play Reboot

Image
This week's Gary and I discuss the child's play reboot. See if you can guess who did the laugh for Chucky.
In case you didn't know I try to do an Easter egg at the end of each video. Either something cut from the show to isolate it, a blooper, or a soundscape.
Hope you enjoy and see you Friday.

There's Things to do

Image
I think I delete more work than I come up with.

Well, here I am in Manhattan, at a Café, my coffee leave has turned into a weird bubble picture of itself, and I'm
loathing the thought of going into work.

A snow storm was supposed to have come through, but it's been "Delayed."

Got here early because there is a drastic reduction in the number of people going to work.

I turn to look out the window, at the ferry, the first few flakes starting to fall, and can't think of anything to write.

I'll think of something, but it's frustrating.

I'm thinking of Wednesday's YouTube show, what I have to do, excited for what is done, but still worrying about if I'm wasting too much time.

My body has been saying "screw you, I'm going to sleep" at night. And I understand. With all I’m doing I need to sleep. But it adds to the frustration.
I paint a positive attitude on top of it, but these are things I am feeling. I don't want to lie to my…

Monday Nonsense

The censor dog and Gary's experience in an escape room come up. 

Plus I finally find out what the ghost noise is in Gary's house. Check it out below.

Video Games and Motion Sickness

Gary and I are back at it on this Wednesday's episode. 

I talk about messing with playing games casually on YouTube and Gary talks about his motion sickness with first person shooters. 



A Place I Visit In My Dreams

I have vivid dreams. I find myself wanting to revisit some of them. There is one where I go to this house that is a conglomeration of all the places I've lived and known throughout my life. My old apartment with my parents' and sister growing up, my grandmother's place, my family upstate and their various houses.

When I'm in this dream, I know it sometime towards the middle or ending. Sometimes I can remember the dream, sometimes I cannot.
All of the times it is basically the same place, from a different point of view. One door opens up to a mountainscape. I don't know how this is, because from entry there are no mountains. There seems to be a bottomless chasm (I just know) before the mountains, but I don't see that, and don't know when the base of the mountains starts, which makes it more eerie.
Then there is the main place, which connects a few different apartments together to form a house-like structure. One side faces an urban-like street, another a more…

Debating Video Game Videos

I enjoy watching others play video games from time to time.

Sometimes I want to see the story play out but don't want to purchase the game.

Sometimes I watch to decide if I want to buy. 

There are times I do nerdy things like watch comparisons of game consoles, or PCs. Graphic cards. 

The evolution of games is an interesting and nostalgic ride. 

There are obviously more qualified gamers to do this. Plus, with a busy life and writing I feel I don't have the time needed to nurture such an endeavor. 

But an occasional session can't hurt. Plus I LOVE horror games 

So maybe, just maybe, if I have some time, I'll play some Call of Duty Zombies and post it to see how it does.

Talk soon.

Frozen Lament

I sit here frozen, warming the car to go to work. Wishing I could be writing. Well, I guess I am. But you know. 

It's Friday, so there's that. 

Going to be a busy day. I'm going to try and finish off the edits on the Friday YouTube video. Let's see what we can get done. 

Alas, she's as warm as she's going to get. Time for work. 

Talk soon.
