What to watch

I don’t know how many of you know this, but I am off of Facebook. Have been for a couple of months now and the only thing that I was really missing was “Red Table Talk” with Jada, Willow, and Gammy (Smith). That and knowing when people’s birthdays are.

So what can you watch, when you don’t really want go on Netflix, or you don’t want to watch the television. Just in case they pop in a picture of a dead child in there…You know those ads I’m talking bout! So I would really love to hear what you watch when you don’t really want to watch the “regular” stuff?

For myself, I have since found that I don’t need to have a Facebook account to watch Red Table Talk, which is great! The less time I spend on Facebook, the better off I will be. There a few channels on YouTube that I love to watch, and still do. However, the ads really annoy me. I get them, but they just bug me. I just don’t like ads, because I feel if I wanted what they were selling, I would have gone off and bought it already. We even have an ad right now, a badly made ad. It really does look like someone made it on PowerPoint. Adverting to give away free Bibles.

It is so dodge!

Even the email looks dodge.

That’s why I don’t like ads/commercials. You interrupted my viewing time for this! Those ads are being shown during prime time too. So how much did they pay for it?

At the moment, I still watch certain Facebook videos on pages that I like, you just can’t make comments. Which is fine with me.

I have started to listen to podcasts…So if you have a podcast, please let me/us know in the comments below!

With YouTube, I will watch videos (mainly music). If I can, I try to press “skip ads”. But it is really annoying, when you’re trying to listen to a video while doing something like “homework” and some commercial comes blaring on!

I still watch DVDs!

 

 

 

 

Twitching to Twitch

I finally thought of something to write about, something that is really quiet magical to myself and I hope that it becomes magical to you as well.

I call myself a “creeper twitcher” which basically means that I watch a lot of Twitch streaming…

What is Twitch, I hear you ask? (Maybe)

Twitch or Twitch tv is probably the leading platform when it games to live streaming gamers and their games. More than 45 millions…that’s million…gamer use Twitch to live stream their games and other related live gaming type entertainment. This can be anything for watching other people play, people who cosplay making their latest costumer to food and drink. Some people will just literally streaming themselves having a party.

I call myself a “creeper twitcher” because I watch quiet a few twitchers. Some are harder to watch than others just purely because of the time different. As I’ve mentioned before it is LIVE…So this means because we are watching people from all over the world, sometimes you do miss a favourite twitcher. However, there a couple of Australians I LOVE to watch and luckily, they like to Twitch a lot as well!

I have often thought about becoming a Twitcher myself, instead of just stalking everybody on it. I just do not have the guts to do it! I honestly feel like that people on the Twitch community are becoming celebrities on their right. A new media for celebrity maybe?

What about yourselves? Do you like to watch Twitch? Care to share who you are currently watching? Are you a creeper too?

How many languages do you you speak?

I only speak the one language, unfortunately. I can say bits and pieces of German, but they are very small  bits and pieces. I can count to 10, say good morning and good night, mother and father and that is it really.  I would love to be able to speak another language, but I struggle with English as it is,lol.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

  • Reading: Hindsight by Melaine Casey. I’m actually reading 3 different books right now,lol
  • Watching: I’m not really watching a series or anything right now, I have a lot of stuff taped though that I’m getting through.
  • Listening: I’ve been listening too  a lot of Fantasy and Celtic type music. I’ve been getting back into meditating, crafty things and I find this kind of music helps me to keep creative.
  • Eating: I’ve been trying to eat a lot more healthy at the moment, I’m hoping it’ll help with my anxiety issues. I think it actually is making a difference, I am noticing the differences, because I am now aware of the differences.

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

Grumpy Cat,lol

What is your favorite time of day?

This can depend on the day as well honestly, if I’m not working I enjoy the actual day, especially when I’m doing chores around the house, or I’m doing things that make me feel like I’ve done something with my day off. On the day that I’m working or get called in (because I’m a causal) my favourite time would be between that time when you first get home and that time when you’re start getting dinner ready.

Learn something new every day!

I am a BIG believer in learning something new every single day…Literally a huge believer in it, so I decided to test my theory on this. I got the idea from Dave’s Corner of the Universe … When better to do it then the month of my birthday? A whole new year, another year around the sun…sigh…lol…Although this will be coming all in one full post, I will be posting about something new that I learned that day. Whether that be about myself, someone else or just some random fact…Enjoy! Let’s learn together…

For the Month of April…

  1. Too much Heinz spaghetti in one toastie, will explode in the sandwich toaster.
  2. Scientologist/Scientology….BLOW MY MIND! How it’s all legal, is beyond me. Watch Louis Theroux and Leah Remini series.
  3. I can feel the difference now when I drink coffee and when I drink black/earl grey tea. How it heightens and how coffee buzzes with my mind, which does not help anxiety. Try and stop drinking coffee for two weeks and see how you feel with that first cup of joe after two weeks. 
  4. People do NOT read the letters they are given. Then honestly expect you to give them…oh I don’t know…Their thousands of dollars school course for free, because they’ve waited till the last minute to setup their fees…Since they’ve gotten the final letter saying they’ll be taken to the debt collectors…Like that’s our fault? How surprising it is to see just SO many people NOT pay fees. I couldn’t live with it!
  5. Ian McKellen was asked to play Dumbledore 
  6. Alligators are apparently more “placid” than Crocodiles.
  7. Sometimes when you feel a cold or the flu coming on…Do everything! Stay Warm, drink lots of tea, have some Panadol and have lots of vitamin C I swear that it holds it off.
  8. Even a sip of off milk can hurt/upset your stomach…Do not ask! If you’re not sure, throw it out.
  9. Karula the magnificent Leopard is feared dead, as we haven’t seen her in such a long time. I never thought I could feel so much dread of an animal I have never met.
  10. Possible sympathy cold? Can you get those?
  11. Napoleon abdicated willingly and was exiled.
  12. If you work hard enough, you always get where you want in the end.
  13. Having two days in a row to do nothing is truly something I may have too treasure soon! I can always say no, but I wont want to for a while.
  14. Is there any chocolate any better than dark peppermint chocolate?
  15. I got to watch April the Giraffe give birth live!
  16. My body is capable of a lot, I just wish my mind could catch up!
  17. Weather is really weird, when it’s changing from season to season and I never know how many jackets or cardigans to carry with me.
  18. Slenderman is freaking freaky and I haven’t even played the game! (Watching “Fear the Slenderman“…The true story of the two young girls who attempted to kill their “friend” to appease the Slenderman)
  19. In 1770 Captain James Cook first sighted Australia.
  20. Gators the latest in bush-walking fashion.
  21. I don’t think Instagram is the place to talk about Equality, unless you fit that persons “box”.
  22. Not sleeping well two nights in a row (just can’t sleep) really makes you feel unwell. Then sleeping during the day makes it harder to sleep at night, again.
  23. I love that we are STILL finding things like these ancient Egyptian Tombs, it really is fascinating. Another piece of a puzzle!
  24. Emperor Penguins have 100 feathers per square inch.
  25. Lest We Forget
  26. I heard the best quote today “We have learnt our rights, but we have not learnt our responsibilities”.
  27. The 27th of 2017 is #safarilive and WildEarth 10th birthday of streaming live feeds of streaming live safari’s…PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT!
  28. In 1770 Captain James Hook, aboard the Endeavour ship, lands at Botany Bay in Australia.
  29. There is absolutely a reason why they have Warnings on the packets of headache/pain tablets, about not drinking alcohol after you’ve taken them…Don’t ask,lol
  30. I have always believed that animals have emotions, but I’m not sure who else agrees.

(Please read Ribbonrx Blog…Such a variety of important topics!)

What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

Dance! I love those dancing videos of Astaire and Rogers, and I have such a crush on Gene Kelly. They just moved. When they dance, they just seem to move (sounds like a really stupid way to describe it I know). The best way I can describe it, it just seemed natural to move that way, almost as natural as walking. All that twerking and krumping, it’s just not dancing to me, it’s all just disjointed…Just my personal opinion.

What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?

Its hard to say musical a favourite genre for books, but musicals truly are probably my favourite genre. I guess if I was looking for a genre that was to fit both, would have to be fantasy. Lord of the Rings springs to mind where the genre really does fit both the book and the movie.

How often do you people watch?

I do it quiet a lot, if I’m at work I probably am doing it at least once or twice a day. Where I work currently we are the central part of helping people find their way, we are the front desk and we’ve got these huge windows that we can look out at. It’s incredibly addictive. It’s incredibly addictive for people watching and day dreaming on a quiet day.

What have you only recently formed an opinion about?

Good Question…There is a lot of different issues out there and lots of different opinions and I have re-looked at a lot of mine own. This is what I’ve discovered. There are far too many different opinions out there and that is what they are…Opinions…Just because you or I think it a certain way doesn’t make it’s right. For anyone, or any level. You can sit on your social media and try to change the meaning of a word to suit yourself, it still doesn’t mean that’s what that’s means. You can tell yourself that meaning or that word is not the same when it applies to you, so you don’t have to think of yourself as the same as the people who hurt you, but you are still doing the exact same thing. I get it, it’s like the bullied becomes the bullying, or the abused become the abusers, it’s a very well known thing to happen. You trying to sit there and saying though “Well it’s the not the same when I do it” Doesn’t make it suddenly change. I mean with anything, not just bullying and abuse. If you are doing the exact same hateful and saying vile things, like those that were said or done to you…Then yes, you are the same as them. You don’t get a “Get out of Jail” free card.

If you were given a boat or yacht today, what would you name it?  (You can always sell the yacht later):

I think that honestly the only way I would even have an Yacht/Boat is if I won it, I get really bad sea sick motion. I would definitely be selling it, but if I was able to name it. I might name it something like “The Lady” or the “Duchess Lady”. ‘Something Fancy’.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? 

I think that I would have to be somewhere between Happy and Dopey. Sometimes me being happy can make me Dopey at times. Sometimes when I’m meet someone for the first time I’m Bashful, but as I’ve gotten older, this happens less and less. As for the name of the 8th Dwarf, I think it would have to be something like: Smartie…I don’t know!

Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?

The two that I would have to choose between is:

  1. “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.
  2. “The Show must Go On”…I know it was done but Queen, but I can really relate to the Moulin Rouge version. I feel like that song when I’m down and…well…The Show Must Go On!

Complete this sentence:  I like watching…

Homicide Hunter…Don’t ask me why, but I just love that show. Lt Kenda has had such an interesting career, he’s solved over 400 cases. They even brought him in on the Jon Benet case, ages after though. Read more about it here: LT.
