This one's just a long *sigh*-type of post.
Oh boyo, Twitter… it’s getting worse.
Wanna spread misinformation on covid? Then Twitter is the place to be! Again! Why though?
Just in case Twitter goes down, here’s how to reach me.
Alright, here's how you'll reach me if I or you end up leaving the bird site.
Maybe I’ll actually use Mastodon and Tumblr instead of Twitter
Twitter may turn into even more of a toxic cesspool under [he who shall not be named]'s reign... so I'm thinking about alternatives.
No more “Going Live Tweets”! – Instead: Here’s a “Going Live Thread” :)
I won't tweet out about me "going live" for a while - and here's why I will do a thread instead.
Some thoughts on “She said/He said” and internet vigilantism.
Today I share some thoughts on internet vigilantism and people wanting blood. Please be civil about it.
About Leaving People Alone
Today we talk about chatting up strangers, why some people don't like that and why interrupting people is rude while saying "no" isn't.
Regarding Press Requests
Today I talk about what I like to see in an e-mail regarding my reviews... and what you shouldn't do as a streamer/YouTuber/blogger in press requests.
Dream and his influence
Today I wanted to talk about Dream and how he may not handle his stans too well, especially in light of the drama he stirred up again as of late.
Forager – The Rise and Fall
Forager is a great game, I'd say,... but recently allegations about the lead developer came out and I honestly believe it judging from Mariano's phrasing. Here are my thoughts!
Alex Hutchinson is out of touch with reality
A lot of streamers on Twitch have been using music that they don't own or that they weren't explicitly allowed to use in their streams and now have to fear DMCA strikes and potential takedowns from clips and VODs that could be plenty of years old. Twitch is trying its best to mute those VODs... Continue Reading →
The “How are you?” controversy and Fleeksie
Today a tweet by Twitch streamer "Fleeksie" blew up and went viral, causing a relatively one-sided discussion about small talk, streamer-to-chat-interaction and toxicity. I usually wouldn't write about this since it's just gonna pass after a day or two at max anyways but I thought it would be an interesting topic for a blog post.... Continue Reading →
Got too many games? Fear not, here’s more!
At this point, thirty minutes ago, StuffedWombat, the developer of Gutwhale, asked on Twitter what long term effect this 1000+ game bundle will have on the people that will buy games/that have big gaming backlogs already... and well,... here's my answer to that. https://twitter.com/wombatstuff/status/1271388336826048516 When I speak of "this bundle" I mean the Bundle for Racial Justice...

TSS#63 – The current situation and my opinion, I guess
This is a shorter longer post and potentially a bit "heavier" than usual but this time around it's about "our voice" and about politics in a way. It's about my beliefs and my take on the matter and everything that is going on right now... and I'm telling all kinds of -ists and -phobes to... Continue Reading →
TSS#59 – Indiecator – Now on Instagram!
Social media is weird… or rather: I haven't really figured it out. I'm constantly shitposting on that Instagram-account that my first ever girlfriend forced me to create and after 502 posts of uh… mountains… vineyards… vacation… museums… "Do Not Touch" signs that I've touched… and me, I guess,… well… apparently 166 people are following me...

The Stray Sheep #35 – en passant
So, I thought I'd talk about the new headers I made for my blog (which I'm rather proud of!), how uni has been (as it just started), and what the current situation/final decision on the Heartbeat review is & something else. Regarding the "en passant", I thought it'd be cool to talk about how my... Continue Reading →
The Stray Sheep #11 – Social Media
So in today's Stray Sheep I'm talking about social media and stuff. Or rather.. I'm sharing links in this post so that we've got one post with all of it! ...Well, "all of it" until I look into the other things that you can connect Jetpack to. Anyways, when I opened this blog, I created... Continue Reading →
