Got the newest episode in the editing room and a couple of new things in the works. Here's the thing, I'd like to do a Q and A regarding kitchen stuff. I know the first section will be knife basics, sharpening, choosing, handling, etc. but I'd like to know what questions people have for a chef. Nothing is off limits and no question is too silly, so drop em anywhere. You can comment here, send me a message on youtube, or fire me an email at

Go for it, get weird.

Two hundred and forty six. This is the number of games currently sitting on my shelves. I've finished most of them and kept them all in pretty good condition. They range from nintendo to ps3 and 360, and most of them have been fully conquered and leisurely revisited, but some were distracted from, some slipped through the cracks and were put on hold. Well, challenge accepted! they shall be neglected no more! I shall revisit everything, my complete library and run the incompletes through alphabetical order and systematically destroy them all. Two hundred and forty seven. I forgot to include my collector's edition of Gears 3. It's under my tv rather than on a shelf. All this isn't including my digital copies of steam games, computer games, and other bits lying around. I'll get a grand total sometime here, but this is the main one for now.

I'd like to give much thanks to those who've watched the new video and who gave feedback, it's been very helpful and I've got something going here.

The first game for completion is Afro Samurai for the 360.

I'll hopefully submit a game time and number of days to complete.

One thing about posting on YouTube is you go around watching plenty of other videos from plenty of other people and you really should leave a constructive comment and a like if you did like the video, but sometimes it's hard to leave a comment eithout tearing someone's head off and starting a flame war. Offline, I'm a chef and have been dealing with food all my life, so I like to think I might know a thing or two about food production. From this experience, I would like to remind everyone that at some point, SOMEONE has touched your food. I don't care what you think at home, but the moment you chastise someone for not wearing gloves in an open kitchen or in a tutorial, you need to remember a few things:

1. We are trained professionals. We are taught to wash our hands all the time. It's ingrained in our schooling and work experience. We wash when we get to work, when we change, before and after handling a food item, after every time we touch our hair, face, or anything else on our freaking body (seriously, watch a chef with other people, they don't touch their face) and literally any time we think "did I wash my hands?" No matter when that is.

2. Gloves are a temporary barrier. They are put on by our hands, in fact, the same hands you were freaking out about a second ago. They cannot and do not replace hand washing and the department of food health and safety say they aren't as clean as regularly washing hands and certainly aren't a replacement.

3. Gloves used in a food setting aren't medical grade gloves, meaning that they aren't sterile, and they are not made in a sterile environment. I don't know how or where they are made and frankly even if they say food safe, that really isn't hugely releaving knowing the standards for food grade equipment in a factory.

4. Gloves are for me, not you. The only time I wear gloves in a kitchen is when I've got some type of cut, burn, or open bit on my hands. Cuts and burns are a part of every day kitchery and when they happen, I treat, medicate, sterilize, and wear a medical grade glove out of a first aid kit so I don't get an infection. I handle a lot of raw meat and here is a slim chance something could have a minor bug.

5. Not every little germ will kill you. There are germs in your cheeses, creams, yogurts, pickles, and vinegars just to name a few. There are a lot of products that are living organisms filled with beneficial or neutral bacteria, moulds, and fungi. People get sick from cross contamination and food being left out for too long at unsafe temperatures. Both can happen with gloves.

Next time you watch a video and think "eww, dirty hands! No gloves!" Chill out and realize that they might know what the fuck they are doing.


New Logo?

I figured since I'd like to one day get paid to do what I do, it might be a good idea to have a logo that wasn't just the poison mushroom. My personal stuff can still use it, but I tweaked it for potential revenue later. Tell me what you think:

potentially new logo

I've got a new full time job, meaning my recording time is slightly less than I like. I've picked up a little side recording to get something on the youtube page, mostly because I'm tired of having no videos on there. I'm working on the audio for the nuzlocke now, and most of the video editing is done. I should be able to get some episodes up fairly soon. I've got a good chunk recorded, so I can build up some time to work with scheduled episode releases.

There's also another series now in scripting. It's more focused around my food, but games will have a deep involvement as always. More details as they come. We do have an entire first season planned and partially story boarded. Fine details to scripting and shooting permissions to follow. It ma wind up getting it's own channel, with links to full length game segments hosted on the games dump page.

Commentary is a bitch

So, I've been taking suggestions for the nostalgia filler, and so far, the loudest ones are Super Mario world, Mario Bros. 3, Kirby, and Spyro. I'd like to get something a little ore obscure in there, but alien 3 was a great way to start with hidden gems for me.

I've got a weekend coming up, and I think I'll be trying to work out some more graphical designs for thumbnails to try and make it easier to follow the series'.

And for those very few wondering about the great migration, it's still happening.. Slowly. I've moved a lot of the little bastards and my Pokedex is now almost at the 500 mark. There will be an upload once all is said and done.

1. more alien 3, I want to finish, as I never have before.
2. more of the gold nuzlocke run. I've been neglecting it.
3. something on the pokemon x nuzlocke.
4. a guest commentary lets play with either SMW or something similar.
5. *possible* commentated attempt at a play through of the one game that freaks the shit outta me. no promises on that one.
