The American Adventure Part 2 – NASL Sunday Showdown

After my whirlwind of a long weekend in San Francisco, I came back to Los Angeles and spent a week with family on a lovely vacation in and around L.A. and Santa Monica. For various reasons (various casting bits being some of them!) I haven’t seen family for a proper vacation in nearly two years …

The American Adventure Part 1 – Happy Coincidences, IPL and the ReIGN House

(Apologies for the lateness of this series of blog posts, as upon my return I basically had an entire month of either casting or travelling!) Back in April of this year, I was very excited to be involved in booking a family holiday. I haven’t had a proper holiday with family in several years so …

My New Keyboard

As some of you may know, I was recently at Gadget Show Live to help filming for Turtle Beach, where a good friend of mine (@Sam_Deans) works. While there, I noticed there was a stand by The Keyboard Company which made me very excited – and here’s a very simple reason why. I’m sure most people who …

i45: An Experience Not Soon Forgotten

I’ll be honest – the mixture of emotions I felt when I was first asked to headline the Starcraft II casting at the U.K.’s largest LAN event was nothing like what you would hear in a press release. The typical “I am thrilled to be casting…” spiel just wouldn’t have cut it, because I was …

Enthusiast Gaming and Customer Service

So today, I took poor old C.H.L.O.E.2 in to the store to have her motherboard looked at. As some of you may know I’ve spent the last month and a half saddled with an occasional problem where USB devices on my computer would randomly cease to function and then turn themselves back on again. This …

Pride and Happiness

Not too big of an update at this point as I’m busy watching the absolutely insane series between CrazyMoving and SaSe at London Barcraft – but I just wanted to express my absolute admiration and pride at seeing my wonderful friends sexiest-nerd-alive Robin (Twitter: @RobinTivo), the eternal Psylence (Twitter: @ThePsylence), my favourite Pokemon Kibbelypuff (Twitter: …

Tournament Saturation: Food for Thought

Are Viewer’s Schedules Clogged Up? I’m sharing my thoughts today on a topic that first came to mind a few weeks ago but I haven’t had the time to write about (and also with the entire world writing about the 1.4.3 patch changes I figured I’d do something different). Towards the end of 2011 and …
