Sometime in the 1950s, a new form of media emerged when families bought a peculiar new device in the living rooms. Called the “television,” it used parts of theater and vaudeville, creating this interesting form of entertainment that was in the moment. It found a following despite what traditional theater said about the medium and is now the established powerhouse we see today. Fast-forward almost 70 years later, and we might be seeing something very similar. The only difference is it’s a highly evolved version, one that can give the viewer a control it has not had in decades. It also engages audiences at a level it has never had before, and one broadcast or cable TV has never been able to give them. All the Content Right Now One of the advantages live streaming gets over current forms of content is in the level of engagement between the people who make them and the viewers. The content producers are making it whenever they want, which makes for a fanbase that watches their content…
If you want your talents to pave a path towards a career, you have to put in due time and diligence to master a certain skill of your choice. I’m sure some of you have heard the saying, “It takes 10,000 hours to master a skill.” Though I do not believe this rule to be the case.
It is amazing what you can accomplish in a single day with effective and efficient practice techniques whether you are an artist, ballet dancer, or even a construction worker.
In this article, I'll be discussing the joys of my passions and my obsession with muscle memory and hand-eye coordination.
The Joy of Music
Elementary school was when I began noticing a joy in music. My father, being the musician that he is, always sang and played guitar around the house. He also ran a music store where I spend the majority of my time after school.
I soon picked up instruments like the bass and drums, but it didn’t quench my musical thirst. One day, my grandfather mailed my father and I a CD containing the Vivaldi…
Google may do many things right, but its Play Store is kind of a dumpster fire. Reviews and ratings there are spammed, bought, and gamed mercilessly. So when you want to find a new Android game and go searching for it there, you can forget drawing any useful information on reviews. Every two-bit garbage game has five-star reviews and a million positive comments from bots who all say the same five things. What's an Android gamer to do? Well, you have to turn to personal peer reviews like the one I'm about to do here. These, in my experience and judgment as a long-time Android gamer, are the top games of all time worth recommending. Now, I have a few standards for these recommendations:
Free is better than paid
Ads should be kept to the minimum.
Paid content should be optional, reasonable, and not required to play.
Paid games should give lots of bang for the buck.
Without further ado (because we don't have space for much doing with a list like this), here's Penguin Pete Trbovich's…
Pardon my round-eyed white idiot weeaboo indulgence, but your Present Author has been sent on a mission by the Editors That Be to explore vTubers(Virtual YouTubers, Japanese: Vユーチューバー, バーチャルユーチューバー). This is 21st century living at its most stereotyped: whole subcultures emerge and gain millions of followers within a couple of years, without most of the world quite knowing they exist. But I'm a techie and media geek first, so even I can appreciate that there's something happening here. We all expected that better AI and CGI technology would give us virtual celebrities sooner or later. That's all a vTuber is: a Virtual Youtuber, a real-life celebrity who never shows their face (almost), instead of having their movements motion-captured and animated through a virtual character, for whom they also provide the voice. Westerners may smirk and say "Hey, that's Max Headroom." Well, no, not quite. It's actually more like Black Mirror. Namely, The Waldo Moment way back in season two: Scary, isn't…
