It’s Official. I’m Twitch Affiliate.

I have been on Twitch for over 4 1/2 years and never could I have imagined I could get affiliate. Honestly, recent changes to their partnership programs have made it easier to understand what I needed to do to qualify. Now as an affiliate, I am super motivated to work harder (with my best buddy Cresta Star) to get partnered!

What does it mean to be Twitch Affiliate?

An affiliate is someone who has been invited by the live streaming platform Twitch to monetize their live streams. Affiliates can start earning revenue on their channels via Bits or subs. Affiliates can also earn revenue from the sale of games and in-game items that originate from their channel page. The next step for an Affiliate is to get partnered which increases the percentage of profits received from all revenue sources mentioned above.

Twitch Con 2017 Vlog – ft. Cresta Star, LadyFox

My time at Twitch Con was AMAZING, to say the least. I had the pleasure of rooming with @CrestaStar and @LadyFox while at Long Beach and we could not have been a more perfect posi for the shenanigans that ensue! I was truly inspired by the event to really get my creative juices flowing and really take live streaming and YouTube serious.

What can I say other than I had so much fun at Twitch Con in Long Beach.  It was my first time and I would have to say I had a blast for sure. My friends and I arrived three days earlier than the con so we spent days leading to it enjoy the sights (the weather was amazing!) and eating good food!

The weather really inspired me to find my Californian style. Compared to NYC, it was heaven! Living in NYC, winters can be such a drag wish mountains of snow and yellow slush lakes (Trust me you don’t wanna know what it is). God Bless Cali~

 

 

 

Best time was being Jaccuzzi side on periscope with my girls Cresta and LadyFox. Warning! The contents in that video might rustle some feathers. (LOL)

I Want to Be a Mad Scientist When I Grow Up

mad-scientist-ziggs-skin

Ok so, technically I am a ‘grown up’ but then again I am not. I’m not there yet. Let’s face it, ‘growing up’ is becoming more and more a spurious idea that attempting to fulfill is a like finding Fenn Foster’s missing treasure chest. However, we do come to points in our lives when we think about being asked as a child “What do you wanna be when you grow up?” and then thinking of our current situation and see that they don’t sync. We wanted to be ballerina, veterinarians, circus clowns and we turned into accountants, hedge fund investors, and lawyers. There isn’t anything wrong with changing your paths, but the moment you turn back and contemplate “What if” is when you shake the foundation of your identity.

My father works a world renown Jewish appetizer store where everyone wore a white coat. I took it one day for my 5th grade career day presentation where this same question was asked of me. When it was my turn, I stood tall with my big bottle coked glasses and oversize white lab coat draping over my body and blustered “When I grow up, I want to be a Mad Scientist!” You’d think the room would roar in laughter, but till this day I never fully understood why the room fell silent. Maybe it was the force behind my small petite voice that articulated such a menacing exclamation. Quickly passing me to the next person, I remember still proudly tripping about as if I had prophesied a miracle, but would it truly come to pass? Would I turn evil and run amok like the greatest villains in comic books and anime culture?

Madness Assumes

As I grew up, I became aware that “madness” is subjective. One person’s insane is another sane. Playing video games so much as a kid was ‘crazy.’ Now, if you playing video games for a living your ‘cool’ making millions a year. If your into computers and technology, your ‘hip’ and successful. Dorks in the 90s are CEOs in the new digital age. Kids bullied are now hiring the bullies to do their dirty work. ‘Madness’ is at it’s climax right now.

So what is my madness? I’ll tell you. It’s the idea the video games can change the world. When we play video games, we gain reinforcement, recognition, entitlement, socialization, accomplishments, love, happiness, and more by the Eustress we put in. Eu- is the Greek word meaning either “well” or “good” so when we attached the word stress it literally means “good stress”. This is the self-fulfillment we lack in our daily lives. To say gamers ‘escape’ from reality to virtual reality isn’t far from the truth. However, what if we take components of the virtual and made life more meaningful? What if we had meetings at work with the same positive reinforcement mechanism? What if schools change their curriculum from test taking to simulation assessments?

The problem with this idea already is you think I’m ‘mad’ or out of my mind for thinking to put video games in anything else besides entertainment. In which I retort, “No I think your mad for not thinking beyond the limitations it offers.” We simply look at video games as entertainment but it’s not. Just like books are windows into new worlds, music tap into emotions and experiences, or photos are memories.

Life is strange. More and more I feel madness becomes that to which we don’t care to understand. What turns out to happen is those that can’t understand something or cope with it’s evolution fall behind. A revolution is coming if it’s not already here. To get a better glimpse at what I mean, take a look at some articles on the combination of video games and psychology.

Let the madness unfold.
