I cracked 600 subs yesterday! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rj14UtUozWc One of the more fun things we do whenever I break a sub milestone is to have a big party on an empty server, so usually 20 or so friends join in and we just game together and use the same voice channel for a couple hours. It's...

Worlds 2021 Thoughts

Worlds 2021 is over but in a weird way it doesn't feel to me like much has changed.  I guess that's because it never really felt like Worlds 2021 started for me.  Between the smoke and heat of the wildfires and my shoes constantly falling apart, I never felt like I was actively competing in a tourna...

The Schrodinger period

The big news is that the filming period for Worlds is now officially over. We're now in that weird Schrodinger's zone for the next week or so where results have not been announced, but we also can't do anything to change our fate either. So like for routines, I feel like I'm simultaneously in 10th p...

Almost 500!

Painfully close to 500 subs now; less than 10 away. In a week my channel will be 8 months old, so I'm hoping I can get closer to 1000 subs by its first birthday. Sub counts are so weird... I've seen several other channels gain 500 subs in a week if the algorithm blesses them, so in a way it's weird ...

Tied with IFPA for subs.

Oh, and I'm also getting close to catching up with my footbag channel, which has 415 subs. Having my gaming channel surpass the footbag channel has been a minor goal for some time as well. Achieved that goal shortly after my last post. As of today, I'm at 437 subs, which ties me with the IFPA chann...

iPhone needs to cool down before you can use it.

Anyway, I decided to try and play in the heat and smoke, mostly because I'm running out of time before the next deadline.  Unsurprisingly, it's hard to play in air that's dirtier than Dubai or Nanjing.  What was a bit of a surprise, was that the smokiness also impacts the video quality.  So not onl...

Bad pool draw

Too bad pixie drifter doesn't repeat; you could do three in a row and see if it clears anything up While smoke doesn't loop with itself, you could do smoke-haze drill.  That'd be pretty neat actually. Anyway, I decided to try and play in the heat and smoke, mostly because I'm running out of time be...

Pixie drifter

Intense smoke covering Colorado this week due to the wildfires in California and Oregon. The AQI has been in the 170s the past 2 days, and look like they'll get worse. This basically makes it impossible to play footbag outside. I may try and play in a gym, since I'm vaccinated this year as opposed t...

400 subs

..and that was less than a month ago. I'm now at 207 subs, 3.5 months after launching my channel. Pretty happy to have doubled my goal for the year, less than 4 months in! I'm now at 401 subs! Not bad for 7 months of work. I still think I'm just one viral video from really blowing up. In related ne...

Giri giri

just had a new born two weeks ago! Congrats on the new addition to the family! Still feeling unprepared for Worlds on my end. I baaaaarely got my Shred Off submission filmed for this round. My plan was to take Thursday afternoon off to do a dental checkup followed by shred. The dentist visit went b...

Quick 2021 Worlds thoughts

For shred 30, if I do both stepping op clippers and both drifters, are those all counted as uniques? Almost 100% certain the answer is: "yes, those are all uniques." The controversial one historically has been paradon/barfly/DDD/DOD all being considered the same and therefore not unique. Haven't ha...

Ready or not, Worlds is here

Bumpy couple months on my end physically and mentally, so not much footbag and even less posting here.  I got so stressed out with work and parenting that I seriously considered skipping Worlds entirely.  Eventually I decided to register, but I'm still not sure to what extent I'll (be able to) parti...

Jokic was the MVP...a year later

Looks like I was a year too early with this prediction. But I was eventually right, for the right reasons. Onto some wildass predictions: :arrow: MVP: I have a weird feeling it could be Jokic.  There are a lot of superstar duos on teams that will do well, but the fact that they share the load probab...

Play-in to Playoffs

Do you think that's good - that playoff to the playoff? I guess it's good for teams 9 and 10. I think it's been awesome. There are 30 teams in the NBA, and most years only 4-5 of those teams have a real shot to win the championship. There are probably 8 more that are locks for the playoffs, and tho...

Kyle is coming to town!

Haven't had much motivation/inspiration surrounding footbag lately. I had one session 2 weeks ago where I had one bag fail, and my best bag got lost in my rain gutters. Very frustrating and demotivating. I think I've only played once all month, and I still don't have a song selected for Worlds. It's...

I won!

I won my NBA Fantasy League! I think I'll probably retire from Fantasy now. I've won 4 or 5 times now, so don't feel like there's much left to prove. I also don't have as much time for this kind of thing, mostly due to my YT gaming channel. Play-in tournament starts in the next couple days and shoul...
