      Right now life is just crazy! How crazy you ask? 

      35a33eda629c4a59a5171d92684bc64c.gif


      So I may have accidentally committed to move 2,956 miles... It wasn't on purpose, I swear!! Things just sort of happened. But it looks like I've found a company willing to work out making an opening for me. I am pretty hype, pretty nervous, and just confused.


      Are_you_fucking_serious.gif


      Yeah... see I have this hypo-active amygdalla thing that gives me an amped up fight or flight thing. Also... just also ok? I can't explain it. I'm bad at being an adult. I know what you're thinking. Nothing could possibly go wrong. In fact, selling my house and starting a new life is in fact the second best idea ever. The only better idea has involved a jetpack.

      tumblr_inline_mihz78zgDp1qz4rgp.gif


      Well things may go wrong, but still. West coast people. Teach me your ways!
      If you do, I will make you cookies. I promise.

      Spent the week doing catastrophic failure tests at work. The down side it is that it's fairly hazardous and long days. The up side is you get to cause explosions so big it knocks out power for about 8 blocks.


      kTz4E2R.gif


      But the testing is done for the week so I um... have a cold. Listen, my dudes, if my boss asks I HAVE A COLD, ok? Going 3 days without putting on pants and eating delivery is a thing I need in my life right now. 


      tumblr_nmzlydA1Ug1qk8gxeo3_400.gif


      Umm... what else is new, I got my tax return back so I paid up all my bills, booked a week in Portland and a weekend in Myrtle and now I'm broke again. You could call that predictable but I would have to say... 


      jL5sEWb.gif



      Anyway, tonight I am chilling with some friends and we are getting our 90's on playing old music videos, nomming some pizza and Mt Dew, and later we are going to watch 10 things I hate about you. Check out my awesome dance moves.

    • Can we have a FIRST member "everyone" feed

      in Forums > Can we have a FIRST member "everyone" feed | Follow this topic

      StryfeRyder

      As someone who wants to make more friends in the community, I like to check out the "everyone" feed to see who is posting journals. 


      The problem: the feed is always full of SPAM, movie cam rip sites, knock off tindr apps, I'm just done. Today either due to an update or an exploit the everyone feed was 95% spam and there wasn't even the button to flag for removal


      The solution: give us a feed that is FIRST only. Spammers won't buy first just to flog spam. I mean, I'm sure there are other solutions, but if they haven't been able to implement them by now can't we just have one extra feed while we wait? I mean it doesn't hurt anything to give Firsties another benefit right? I doubt the server load to parse one extra data column isn't much compared to serving even a low-res video. 


      Just trying to have a positive option instead of just complaining. So how can we make this happen so the site can be better.

      Let's see... what's new and exciting this week. Oh, I got my tickets for RTX London. Spending about a week and a half in the city. I need to get more fuel for my portfolio and of course the gram. 

      tumblr_oa1r0v17nf1vnvd6to1_540.gif

      To get off the couch more (when not traveling) I am selling my Jeep and using the money to restore a motorcycle. So that is a fun thing to look forward to :)

    • Wanderlust and 10 Little Layovers

      2 months ago

      StryfeRyder

      So remember a few days ago when I was thinking I was done using travel as a form of escapism and I should learn to be a normal functioning adult. Well we dodged a bullet with that one. Turns out it is cheaper for me to fly all over the world than address mental health issues. #ThanksAmerica So really that only leaves me one option...

      tumblr_nejuvuZ1dz1rv65tfo2_500.gif

      That said, in the past 5 years I think I've put on around a quarter million miles between planes trains and automobiles. There is still a whole lot out there. What do you do for fun where you live? And where do you like to travel to?


      tumblr_ngcr56wgAa1ten6hqo1_500.gif

      Ok.... well that isn't exactly what I am looking for, but there are no bad ideas. What have you got people, I am all ears? 


      This post brought to you by the fact I had 10 little roosters on my phone and a boring layover in Philadelphia.

    • PAX Vs RTX

      3 months ago

      StryfeRyder

      This year I was planning on skipping RTX prime for RTX London. I've already booked a flight and hotel for London so that is all set. Then I was thinking... if I skip PAX east I could go to Friday and Saturday of RTX Austin. I would have to leave Sunday morning for Portland sadly. 


      PAX is almost here, it would be nice to fit it in, but Boston is so expensive. What does everything think? What are your experiences? I've had good and bad days at both events so that hasn't really swayed me.

      Every once in a while a friend will try and get me into a particular streamer or web creator. On rare occasions it's not so bad. For the most part I don't like any of it. It gets me thinking... is it all really that bad? Is it something wrong with them, or me? Maybe I just... maybe...
      tenor.gif

      But then RT comes out with a new show and I die laughing, crying, or from any other number of feelings. I can't be the only one.

      Anyway, what is everyone up to this weekend?
      Did you see all the new show clips from RTX Sydney?!
      I hope to see lots of people on here posting about all their favourite parts. High fives for everyone!

      Thanks for the comments! I will absolutely be at PAX East this year! (we'll be at the Omni Parker House, trying those fancy rolls) I'm not sure how the SideQuEast event will be handled this year, but I'll make sure Grady knows to pass along my contact info to help run another event. It was a blast. I'll have a hard time finding better last minute gifts than those Pez dispensors!

      Bro, I hope you have an awesome week this week! I'd just like to let you know how glad I am to be friends with you, your level of awesome is through the roof, I love how much thought you put into recognizing community members for stuff they do that you want to give them credit for for essentially being an above average community member, And thank you for starting up the marathon stream, that was a fun way to show support for monty in that time of need and also for getting to know other community members that i otherwise wouldn't have met, as well as learning the joys of tuning into streams. This may seem very WaF day-esque, but fear not because i was stuck doing hw during the day and didn't have time to come up with meaningful stuff to say. And also, I have a permit, it says "I can do what I want"

I'm no good at replying nor am I good at starting conversations. I'm introverted as introverts can be but I like you and I hope we can become friends. *shrugs shoulders* I'll toss you the invite, do with it what you will. *skips off into some far off land of unicorns and rainbows* You could be here too, if you became my friend. xD So shneaky with mah favors.

      Book review: First Light; G. Wellum.

      Just about to finish (last few pages really) and he is basically detailing his experiences of the war. He doesn't talk about everything that happened, but his account works. From the beginning of WW2 and his pilot training to Operation Pedestal. It just talks (and a bit sadly) his experiences of his comrades being killed off and how he just learns to deal with it.. Followed by war fatigue. More of an interesting read than you'd think.

      Hey mate! Wonderful to hear from you and was fantastic to meet you at PAX. I am always down to chat good sir and honestly I may not be the best photographer, especially this year haha, but I'm more then happy to talk about it.

      I use a Panasonic Lumix (I can't think of the model off the top of my head). It may not be as good as an SLR but it was one of the best "point and shoot" cameras at the time when I picked it up. It makes for a fantastic con camera IMO because its compact, takes high quality pics from close or far, and shoots video in HD.

      I only really have two issues with it. Number one is I wish it was just a tad smaller (so I could drop it in my pocket or something) but the carrying case I have for it works just fine and can be slung easily. The other issue, is like most cameras unfortunately, its very hard to take a great photo in low light at long range (I.E. for main theater panels and the concerts). You have to either open the shutter more (and get blurry photos if people are moving a lot) or increase your ISO, which makes them a little grainy and less clear the higher you go. However, once I've taken a few test pics and found a decent balance I can usually get some good photos (not great, but good enough). This year though wasn't really my best for photos though.

      I am considering getting a new camera fairly soon as I'm hoping with new technology over the past few years I can get something even smaller that has even better low light capability. I guess we'll see lol.

      So how are you?

    The bird or the cage?

    Well it looks like bird wins, but I tend to pick the cage. It's more darkly poetic.
