Blog Cramps – Changing Focus to YouTube

I have decided to stop posting on my blog so much and put my efforts towards my YouTube channel and Twitter account.  I have been working on this Blog for about 4 months and I have not seen a single increase in traffic.  I know that is not a long time but I just don’t see it going anywhere.  I seem to get a lot more views on my YouTube channel along with comments, plus I enjoy making videos and commentaries!  If you were watching this blog please use the links below to follow my YouTube channel or Twitter account.  I may still post here and there, but probably not too often anymore – I really want to focus on my other projects. Thanks for checking this blog out if you did!

ImGame Social Gaming Network

ImGame is an interesting mobile application that works like other social media apps but is geared specifically for gamers.  Check out some details below:

“ImGame is a new mobile app that allows users to add friends and check into games.  ImGame is creating a new social network for gamers, by gamers, to keep all of your friends in sync with who’s playing what, and when. 

ImGame has the following features:

  • See what your friends are playing, at any time. Get a visual history of what you and your friends have been playing, on any console.
  • No more “just missing” the gaming session.  Too many times we’ve rushed to get online only to find out your friends just stopped playing.  With push notifications you are notified the second a friend checks in.
  • With Pwnerships, the user with the most check ins to a game has bragging rights.  Only you can check in to “de-pwn” them.
  • Users can collect tokens by doing various tasks through the ImGame network, checking in to specific games on specific days, checking in with friends, or even on to specific consoles.

Who are we: We are just a few guys who love gaming and saw a huge flaw in the way we played.  All too often we would try and schedule a gaming time and end up missing each other.  It would be 15 minutes after a friend signed off, or I would be watching TV with nothing to do, not knowing that 3 of my friends were playingGears of War at that exact time.  ImGame remedies that.  If your friend starts to play Gears and checks in, you would get a notification telling you to get to curb stompin!”

New Random Design Added

Shatter

I was a little bored tonight and decided to do some messing around in Photoshop. I never know when I am finished with designs like the one above, I could probably continue to add to it forever. The possibilities are endless, but I liked where I ended up here and decided to be done with this thing. I think it looks like glass shattering or a blizzard with lights. I should of made it larger for a wallpaper or something, maybe I will make a new and larger one like it for my computer background. Click on it for the full size version or check out the Random Design page to see some other junk.

New Design Page: Random

Random One

I have been lazy and not posting much of anything lately so I decided to at least add something to my design area.  I added a “random” page and included one picture I worked on tonight. I am noticing I have more of a creative flow when working with abstract ideas versus realistic. Probably because the latter is much tougher in my opinion :). I should be adding more to the random page soon hopefully.

New Skyrim Footage

Head on over to the Bethesda Blog to check out three new videos showing off more new Skyrim footage!  It’s still looking awesome.

New Funny Page Added

Added a funny page in the top menu bar to keep all the weird and funny comic things I make.  I am having way to much fun making rage comics lately so I decided to dedicate a spot on this blog to it.  Pretty soon this blog will be about everything I like!!  I guess that is the point of blogs though right?  Check it out by clicking here!

Wallpaper Gallery Added

Wallpaper 3

Just added a wallpaper gallery under the design page.

Random Rant: Doctor Visits

Here comes the fun time

I feel like ranting about something, so I figured I would add a new category to my blog for it!  I recently had the pleasure of contracting a type of food poisoning called camplyobacter.  It is pretty unpleasant to say the least, I had diarrhea for about a month off and on and some vomiting.  When I finally realized it was not the stomach flu and wasn’t going to go away I decided to see the doctors.  I was progressively getting worse and thought I needed help fast, so I went to urgent care on a weekend… pretty much a waste of time there.  So I made an appointment to see my general practitioner later that week.  Here is where my rant begins… the first thing the doc wants to do is a rectal exam…………..   WHY!! I ask, I know there is something wrong I am shittin’ my brains out every 30 minutes, do you need to stick your fingers up there to make sure?!  Apparently its to check for blood or some crap, I dunno.  So Ok, I am a big boy, I can deal with it… took off the pants, grabbed the side of the doctor bed and prepared for insertion.  Couple seconds of uncomfortableness and we were done, phew.  Doctor said nothing seemed out of the ordinary and prescribed me some antibiotics to flush out any unwanted bacteria that may be in my stomach, this is before they found the poisoning.

Couple weeks later the diarrhea had stopped but I was still getting sick almost every day.  I was referred to a specialist and guess what they wanted to do!  MORE RECTAL EXAMS!  I pleaded with the doctor, telling them “I just had it done!  Can’t you see my medical records?!”.  They respond “We need to check for ourselves”.  Ok… I suppose that’s professional right?  Here we go again… finger scooper in the pooper.   These doctors also have require me to poop in a bottle and send it in for studying, this can be tricky, but manageable.  They found the bacteria in the study and said the antibiotics I was originally given by my GP should be taking care of it.  A few weeks go by and I still don’t feel that great, so I go back to see if they can do anything else – sure they can they can give me ANOTHER RECTAL EXAM!  At this point I am thinking there must be gold in my butt, I don’t know.  I don’t understand why it was necessary so many times, but whatever.  Third time must of been a charm because I haven’t had to do it since.  I rant because I don’t understand why doctors can’t review other doctors notes and records instead of doing the same tests over and over… the discomfort was minimal and only lasts a second, not so bad, but the fact I can expect to have it done every time I utter the word “diarrhea” is making me wonder about my doctors intentions over time.
