Toodles Tuesday

Hiya all! 

Some changes to discuss this go round. As you’ve likely noticed, my gaming is beginning revamp and the cause is a necessary one, I’ve changed all my gaming media to gmeraine. I love being the klutzy gamer but it’s so many names for one endeavour. I remain FireflyRaine on XBL but all social media is now gmeraine. I’m writing this on mobile but as soon as I get in front of my laptop, I’ll continue updating links including the ones here on site. Until then just look for gmeraine on TwitchYouTubeHitboxSteamFacebookGoogle+Twitter & Instagram. Sorry for any confusion. I’m making the graphics and swapping up the links my priority for the week. 
In other news, I missed last weeks Parapopulous blog and yesterday’s podcast. I’m sorry and will get this weeks blog up on Thursday to catch us back up. I did say I would do one a week if I got crunched and boy did I. And then created more work too LOL! 

It’s a short update but I have to squeeze in some yardwork before more interwebs work so I’d better get my bunions moving! 

I hope the world is treating you well. 

au revoir

Hi

How’ve you all been? 

It’s been just ridiculously busy for me. Not surprisingly so you might say but this past few weeks have been much more so. 

I’ve been playing in the mornings as well for 2 hours. It’s not been daily but it’s been almost so. I’d like to keep it in some form or possibly switching a stream or two to the brunching hours, but I’m not sure what the end result will be. I’ve been having weird issues with only certain games not exporting over and it’s been almost a week of trying! I don’t want to have to start recording while I stream, as I don’t think my processor and memory will be enough so if it continues a venue switch may have to happen. I’ll of course keep you posted but it’s business as usual for the Klutzy Gamer Twitch and YouTube. And let’s not forget my weekly streams on Great Geekwads too! 

So beyond the usual gaming routine it’s been a busy couple weeks for behind the scenes stuff like taxes and spring outdoor work. I’m filming and have two videos ready to go up for you on the RaineCaster YouTube. They’re being edited as I learn how to insert and it’s a slow thing since it’s only me working on everything, but I promise they’ll be up sooner than later. 

In all this Parapopulous has been gaining fans! And I’m excitedly seeing it and my Klutzy Gamer growing. I know the shops will as well once the items I’ve been attempting to work on amidst all this get up and the shops get a bit of a tweak. This must begin to feel like lip service but I have been working away at things for them, though admittedly not nearly as fast as I’d want to.

It’s hard to think about much else with all this going on but my family and in particular my dad have been taking a lot of my attention. This will be his last week of chemo and radiation and he is starting to really feel the effects of it. After Monday he’ll have a wait of a few weeks and then surgery at the start of June. It’s perhaps a front he’s giving us all but he’s doing well, all things considered. Though I, and much more so he I’m sure, can’t wait for things to get back to normal. Or as normal as they get for me LOL. 

So lovelies, I’m off to attempt another try of seeing if those two nights will export over, fingers crossed they join all the others that have managed to export with no issues and work on getting one video up on RainCaster. Don’t forget there’ll be a new Parapopolous blog out tomorrow too and as always a livestream tonight! 

au revoir

P.S. Don’t forget there’s a Facebook page for all my projects as well and give ’em a like if you happen to drop in. You can find them through the Raine of Iris hub or the links here. And “May the fourth be with you”! 

Happy almost Friday

Another long week and another week of being slightly behind but LOL what else is new.

So been busy streaming on Twitch  6 nights on gmeraine and 1 on GreatGeekwads. Of course there’s extra streams here and there and then there’s the scheduling and archiving to YouTube that take up extra time but it’s amazing to be able to hang out with my rainestorm. Looking forward to CoD this weekend since its been a while. 

Loving the IRL & behind the scenes channel, though I’m not sure what to do with it sometimes. I think it’s a nice peek behind the scenes and a glimpse into the person behind the shops, streams, podcast and blogs. Count on it being random because it’s just how I am. I hate that I can’t name it because of he changes to YouTube but, we’ll get to their count and be able to do it soon.

Parapopulous has been busy and there’ll be a new blog post tomorrow. I’m liking the more personal post and though I always planned to do that its nice to have my sea legs. I’m not sure what way I’m going to go with the next post so be sure to follow by RSS feed, on WordPress or through bloglovin’. And of course the podcast is available with direct download or iTunes subscription.

The shops are in limbo. I mean they’re up (except Magpie Muddles) but they need some love and updates. And I will be changing my deviantart to RaineofIris at some point. I have soooooo many ideas to get to you and I promise I will sooner rather than later. 

Well, it’s almost stream time so I’d better get going and get set up. I’ll chatter at you again soon.

au revoir

P.S. Yep, that’s a screenshot 🤓

Another day…

Another change. Another challenge.

So welcome y’all. I’ve decided to not further RainebowsEnd. It’s something that I think will happen eventually but I think I rushed into it and with the potential challenges on the way, I’m better off letting go of it. That being said, I did take on a YouNow for a different way to be able to interact with y’all. Yes it’s called rainecaster but its about all of my projects and everyday life. I did start a Twitter for it so people who just want to know me there can but it’s also a good thing so the notices when I go live have a place to go. I’m also going to be working on the shops this coming week. I’ve go no idea honestly where it’ll go but I want to tidy and attend to a few things.

So I’m sure you noticed the potential challenges I mentioned. I want to let those of you know who aren’t following me on Snapchat (loreleybee) or know my family, what’s going on so you can understand any delays or changes that might be happening. I do promise to keep these to a minimum but, I can’t predict right now. We found out this week that my dad has cancer again. It’s esophageal cancer this time and we won’t know until mid week how bad it is. I’m of course going to have to shift some energy and focus to that. I’ll take any good energies you want to send but I don’t want you to worry. It’s not something I wanted to share but because it will likely have some impact on my work, I felt I owed it to you.

In the meantime, Hedgey has lent me his Xbox 360 so I can throwback again. It’s great fun and my lens isn’t reading disks poperly or at all any more so I’m thrilled to have this option until I can fix mine. I’m quite delighted with the donation of funds so I could get and share Black Ops 3 with you guys too! I’m tardy to the party on it but that’s how I first got into the series so I feel good with it. I haven’t touched story yet, which is unusual for me, but I do promise to share it with you when I do. And speaking of excited…the beginnings of the DLC for Fallout 4 were announced!!! (No, I still haven’t finished the main story once LOL). If you all are curious I livestream 6 nights a week usually on Twitch and archive with other exclusives & sometime livestream to YouTube. Lurkers and chatters are equally welcome, I just ask you follow / subscribe so I know you’re liking the stream.

I haven’t forgotten about Parapopulous I promise. I’m just sorting and planning. I’ll get a new schedule up and running and of course keep you in the loop on everything here or on the Facebooks or Twitters. Right now, I have to run and start prepping for dinner tonight. Thank you all for your support!

au revoir

p.s. I just got the app for my laptop before I posted this, so forgive any spelling or other errors as I get used to it.

Aaaaaahhhhh

So, I come barreling in today with so much exciting news! Though I missed my deadline for a potential spot at a very exclusive juried show, I’m found such a surprise in my inbox yesterday.  

 
I’m very unexpectedly being featured in a spotlight over on handmadefuzzy tomorrow! How exciting, such an amazing surprise! Do check it out on Friday January 29th 2016 after 6am E over on handmadefuzzy

I’m also excited to be back livestreaming on Twitch after the test run of livestreaming on YouTube. I loved YouTube’s  streaming set (up I’ll always be archiving to them and I’ve started adding exclusive bite sized clips as well) but I missed the perks of Moobot and TwitchAlerts. It’s been great fun getting back into the routine and I’m extatic to say currently I’m at 45 followers on Twitch and 20 subscribers on YouTube and all with no big partner or promoter, just me hopping on and doing my thing. I love it and I’m always so happy to know you like it too! 

I know things haven’t been up to speed or outputting exactly the way I want and there’s still tweaks to make, but I promise you it’s getting there and I’m grateful for your support as I do. I’m also thankful of this little community from all my projects, thank you for being wonderful amazing RaineStorms! 

au revoir

Thursday means …

A new blog post on Parapopulous and of course it’s Tube Thursday tonight at 8pm E for me as the Klutzy Gamer. I livestream every night but Sunday and all except Thursday are on Twitch. And look out for some Valentine news tomorrow! I’ll be back to update you with links in about 24 hours. 

au revoir
