Most travels are meant to be met with excitement and anticipation, they are meant to be a great time, stress free and magical journeys to unknown lands blah blah blah. Well while this trip of mine was indeed meant to be all these things, a little spanner was thrown into the works know as the Corona virus. Suddenly, my great travel plans were at risk because of this shitty little virus that decided to take the world by storm. Now this has affected many thousands of people worldwide and while my problems with it might seem trivial, I guarantee there are hundreds who are in the exact situation I was.

A short guide to get set up and going with live streaming
Thinking about getting into livestreaming? Don’t know where to start? Already started looking into it but want to make your streams look more professional from your generic Facebook going live? Well here is a short guide that can get you started. To note, while there are many different ways and options to stream, this will cover the set up that I use while pointing out areas that you can adjust or change. I’ll also be looking at this from a more DJ esc point of view but obviously this should still be relatively universal. So let’s get to it. Continue reading “Live Stream Basics for DJs”→
It keeps on being awhile between updates, I really must strive to do better with my own website.
I have done well with my Facebook and I’m making way with my streaming but it’s still not consistent and that’s something I really need to improve. But in saying that, it’s not easy when things keep changing and get more hectic! I have been recording a lot more stuff and have a few videos that I need to edit and upload so I have content, just need to sort it out and start posting it up!
Wow, it has been awhile since I have updated my page. However, it is time to get back onto it and step my social media game back up again with more purpose. So just a quick update now.
As those who know me already know, this is my last year here in Korea, and since I do get to do a lot of cool shit, it’s time to document that a bit more on here and share different things including some movie reviews and other bits and pieces. I will be travelling to Europe before I head back to NZ so I will be doing a travel blog while I’m away, need to get some traction and momentum going before that happens!
It has been awhile since I have updated my page, had more than a few things going on recently, some good while some bad. I did say this would be a year to get some work done and while I have mostly managed to stay on track, something’s have had to take a backseat. Luckily the things that have taken a back seat aren’t as crucial to achieve my goals as I look towards the next few years, in saying that, they are still things that I need to get back into my life.
Well I got it, finally closed out a second win in the BeFm Expat DJ Contest, that really is a mouthful. It was good to get the win but it was a long time coming and should really have been mine a lot early but it is what it is. And in the end I ended up getting quite a lot of prize money from the contest as well as good photos and video footage over the years so all in all, it was worth it along with the fact that it was always a good excuse to go to Busan.
With that in mind, I might as well take a closer look at my set and break it apart since not only did my set come out really well, it also worked really well and there are aspects of it that I will def use pretty often as I do go forward with my DJn (however much longer that will ultimately last however) This will also be a bit of a breakdown of how I like to structure my DJ sets and the thought process that goes behind it. Might prove useful to some people and interesting to know for others. Continue reading “Making a Winning DJ Set”→
Time for a bit of a life update since it has been awhile and 2017 was a pretty crazy ass year. Managed to accomplish quite a bit during the year, from holding down a residency at one of the hottest clubs in Korea to DJn at Seoul Comic Con, there was some good memories. But now things seem to be winding down a bit for me, might be time to admit that mid life is here and it is time to look ahead and decide just where the fuck I want to be in life. I can’t do this forever and there are various obstacles that have been holding me back here in Korea that I just have no desire to overcome. In saying that, there are other things that I have been contemplating doing and have now decided to look more seriously into pursing those, especially now that I have decided that I have had enough of teaching. Change is needed.
Our team of free agents is slowly starting to come together in the 3rd season of the AAOL. In round 2 we managed to get 5 of our players to turn up and ended up having a very good game against Infinity. Only a strong DPS carry performance from their Masters player kept us in check at crucial moments. A high level DPS player can really make the difference in a team and it is why esp in comp, everyone wants to play DPS. Everyone thinks they are a DPS master and can carry their team, in reality thou, only a few actually can.
Looks like I have found my niche in gaming as we start the new AAOL season
After finishing the Pacific Open Division I managed to join up in time for the AAOL. An amateur Overwatch tournament run in Australia and NZ. Even thou I am over in Korea, being an online tournament with a small time zone difference, I am able to participate without problems. I was wanting to join the KTV league but their game times are on a Friday night and I wouldn’t quite make it back in time from work to play. But since the AAOL is on Saturday, it works out perfectly for me with games being played at 5pm Korean time.
Well, it is over, done and dusted. Our first venture into the competitive arena of video games. We had some ups and downs but hopefully throughout it all, the team learned something along the way. And that is what this was all about, learning something new. Learning more about the game and how it is played on a more cohesive and professional level. To see just how much time and effort teams and players put in to the game and seeing first hand how much of a difference it makes. To learn just how detailed the game can be and how intricate the strategies are which make the game that much more impressive and also shows just where the differences lie between regular and pro players.
