    Yeah. I still enjoy some parts of his streams (like his recent Banjo Kazooie LP) but I have to mute it sometimes when he lets chat get carried away with the constant and extremely annoying sound effects.

    This is part of the reason I don't enjoy watching a lot of people on Twitch. Last year...maybe the year before? I can't remember...anyway, I was watching Mary Kish and Mike Mahardy play through Dead Space, but I could only make it through an episode and a half. Constant donation sound effects and the two of them thanking people for buying a subscription. I get it that that is basically part of Twitch culture, but it's just not for me. Which is too bad, because I did enjoy watching them when it wasn't happening.

    I guess this is part of the appeal of watching the GB guys for me.

    I have a hard time with this. It’s like, I know I’m supposed to thank people who follow me or are being nice to me in the chat, but the main reason they do either of those things is because I’m playing well and I can’t do that AND respond to the notifications.

    So I've adopted kind of a AGDQ approach to it where I'm essentially focused while playing the game, but down time, loading screens, waiting in the lobby, etc. is time to interact with chat and talk at people or discuss outside things.

    Streaming is weird, but only having an audience of about six people at a time might be why I find it relaxing. If I depended on it for my income and wasn't doing it as a hobby I imagine my interactions would be different. I swear right here right now that I'll never have those "90 seconds of Mario screaming!" sound effects though. Good lord man.

    i'm glad dan found a group of people willing to give him actual us dollars to play annoying sounds over his stream.

    i'm also glad i literally never, ever, ever have to watch it.

    I will say that many of those who are playing sound effects during Dans streams at least tend to have a sense of timing for using those to maximum effect (whether trying to be funny in context or annoy Dan). Not nearly to the degree that Jeff does with his soundboard, which tends to be expertly done, but Jeff is also a media trained professional.

    I regularly watch a few gaming and IRL streams with small enough viewers that they're constantly interacting with chat (anywhere from 10 to 200'ish). It makes them far more enjoyable to watch because it feels like the genuinely care more the interactions with their viewers. Not that the very successful streamers don't but with the small viewer counts it feels personal.

    It's also been really fun to spend far too many hours watching IRL streamers based in Japan. Watching them almost feels like I'm back there walking the streets and checking out cool random stores.

    I really liked Vinny asking Dan question after question the first few times he was opening up the Funky Shop and reacting to his antics. Just trying to get him to prolong that dumb hosting bit, throw him off, and see how much thought he put into all the highly specific rules.

    I just finished last week's Beastcast and Vinny mentions that he won't be on this week's Beastcast. And apparently this is why!



    Thanks everyone for reaching out and wishing me well. Starting to feel better actually, so hopefully back soon. Over the moon to have the surgery behind me as it was getting pretty dicey there and the risk of paralysis was scary as hell, obviously.

    For the curious, and potential body horror ahead, I had a severely herniated disc in my neck that was pushing against and bruising my spinal cord. Turns out, that's why the left side of my body was going increasing numb and I would get intense shockwaves down my side when I moved

    The horrible "shocks" are gone (as is the problematic disc, btw) and the numbness has lightened in some areas and hopefully, over time, it fades away even more as my spine heals. It's mostly just still in my fingertips. Again, extremely relieved.

    I was unreasonably worried when Vinnie had to "step away" for a call on the hotspot - compounded with all the recent talk of MRIs. I'm so relieved to hear he was able to get some help for his neck/back and that it wasn't anything more serious.

    I had that same problem last year, my right arm was in constant pain for months and I was basically bound to a recliner in our living room. It sucked shit, could barely sleep, couldn't play any games, nothing.
    Had the surgery to fix it in September, though mine was much easier, was in and out same day. Though my right fingers are still often numb or asleep due to nerve damage, and I've got some serious back pain that wasn't really there before :(

    But him saying the call was from an insurance company makes it so much worse. Fuck health insurance companies.

    As someone who blew a disk in my lower back last year, I can 100% relate. It's fucking scary to deal with a major back injury. When my back doctor told me that I needed to be vigilant about symptoms of my bladder being paralyzed, and that if I didn't go to the ER right away in that case I could lose total control over my bladder, that was an eye opening moment. Back stuff effects your entire body in ways you don't really understand until it happens to you. I lost feeling down parts of my left side as well and had to go through intensive physical therapy to be able to lift my left foot again correctly and not walk with a club foot. Back issues are the worst.

    DJ Jan just threw down the hottest mix of Jerry in the pre-stream. With jerry replaced with different audio cuts of Austin shouting “Vinny!”

    Hopefully people like that have grown and seen the errors of their ways, but it's just as likely that they got heavily involved in GamerGate in 2014 too.

    Yeah, people who have had Vinny's type of surgery have said they sometimes have to move your insides to get to what they need, and that can lead to voice and throat stuff for a bit.
