i am getting my streaming basement situation setup possibly

I will stream... something... as soon as my mic shockmount arrives this weekend. I hope people enjoy me streaming pc games from the stone basement of my 116 year old house

Show thread

my internet at home is so good I am called to stream, it is truly the life that chose me

Don’t tell Larry but I’m doing an impression of him to test my mic settings

nerdy streaming stuff 

productive night of setup testing! i have one of the most janked-together streaming setups imaginable but i think it will be... interesting

i'm using an imac, and i don't have a capture card, so i'm gonna stream mac games, geforce now, ps4 remote play, etc

i am definitely taking advantage of my gigabit up/down fiber and the fact that I spent the time running cat6a everywhere

this will not be a lag-free stream, but I tried playing tetris effect and it worked pretty well

Frog Detective 2 makes Frog Detective 1 look like Frog Detective 3

i am going to start my stream by lighting a margiela candle as a tribute to zero viewers

Show thread

so i'm gonna start streaming video games pretty soon at twitch.tv/spiritfadeout

these will be chill streams, typically after 8pm Eastern Time on weeknights for not longer than two hours. I'll try to keep up with a schedule but it's depending on where i'm needed at home and when the baby is sleeping

but if you would be into watching some low-stress dad streams, please subscribe and stop by.

i am actually pretty proud of the theme i made up

I'm gonna change up the schedule, because three days in a row didn't seem great and also I've had some challenges streaming local games vs. captured from other sources so tiny game tuesday is out i think. but i didn't play yesterday so I will stream …something... tonight

Show thread

i did have a lot of fun playing apex legends with @sexybenfranklin (and have done so now off-stream as well) and would happily invite some other folks to join in (we've been playing on PC)

@alex this looks like a still from one of those mafia city meme commercials
