Cube – A YouTube Relic

In the interest of putting something out today (I’ve been a little under the weather the past few days), I’ve decided to break out this relic from YouTube circa 2006 – a video for a fictional game called CUBE! It’s actually a rather nice animation for what it tries to parody; late 80’s / early …

The Dumbest Scammers Of 2017

Been a good long while since I did anything regarding tech support scams. Rather than another typical video of a scam in action, I thought it would be fun to share this compilation by YouTuber Jim Browning, certainly one of the most thorough and mature scambaiters, where he shows what he feels were the dumbest …

RIP Angry Grandpa

I was rather shocked to read today about the death of a well known, and clearly well loved YouTube celebrity, Charles Green, better known as Angry Grandpa. This one kind of hit me hard – I followed the show passively, but had been aware of it and the family, for quite a while, checking out …

Whoa, the Nerd covering a Playstation Game? Man, 2007 really was a year of growth and expansion for James and the Angry Video Game Nerd. Right, getting to the point, in this episode we have Independence Day for the Sony Playstation. It’s a pretty average game – that sub-par kind of average, from the looks …

Vine To Make A Return? Dear God, No!

My buddy Prince Watercress linked me to an engadget article yesterday discussing how Vine founder Dom Hofmann seems to have teased a “Vine 2.0” if you will – he tweeted just an image in the classic Vine colors that showed “V2.” and.. that’s it. v2 pic.twitter.com/JkzE1CULSV — dom hofmann (@dhof) December 6, 2017 This comes, of …

What I Mean When Discuss The “Cult Of SpaceX”

Here we go, the beginning of the articles I’ve been dreading writing for probably a year now. These are things I feel need to be said and no, I don’t think I’m wrong in what I say – opinions can neither be right nor wrong, after all, but I do feel the concept presented – …

I Can’t Stand Hype Culture

Something that I’ve been wanting to discuss for quite some time is the phenomena of hype being built up around seemingly anything and everything new.  Whenever you have something new coming up, you hear about it nonstop, and often times, in retrospect, you have to ask: why did anyone care in the first place?

Looks Like It’s Over For Vidme

With YouTube being in the state it is currently (something I’m long overdue for addressing) many video creators online have been looking for an alternative, and for the past few months it looked like a certain little website known as Vidme would be a good alternative – it looked to work about as well as …

What’s Coming For December 2017 On Xadara

Ah, we’re at the end of the year. Nice. Very nice. It looks like November is being closed out on a few good notes – while the month has been a slightly lighter one for content,  I have at least been able to keep an average of an article a day – November is a …

Destiny 2 Lied To Players About End Of Game Experience Point Gains

I’ve been meaning to write in detail about Destiny 2 for a while now – I’ve been playing the game pretty regularly and heavily the past month or so and have been enjoying myself quite a bit.  One thing that I noticed but didn’t think about is that at the end of the game, once …
