Staying Positive Amidst a Sea of Negativity

Posted by on Jul 10, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Personal Psyche | 3 comments

Every day I read the social media sites with great interest to see who is blossoming into success.  On the contrary, I find many who have simply giving up on themselves and continue to spout out negative comments in a hope to probably catch attention and to bring down into the caverns of complacency who ever falls for the ill statements of a failing attitude and a shell of a person.
I am an optimist and always have been one.  Even in the very darkest hour, I believe there is light and that a single light can cut through the darkest of days.  How did I get this way?  While growing up, I have witnessed and experienced many of these days and even through the toughest of challenges, death itself and saying goodbye to loved ones, there is always something to look forward too and new beginnings.  By grabbing a hold …

First Impressions Highlight: Warlords of Draenor ALPHA

Posted by on Jun 28, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Wow Posts | 0 comments

My first impressions of Warlords of Draenor, in the end of the ALPHA and beginning of the BETA phase, is exceptional.  I think the game of course needs some apparent fixes and stability but this would be expected as a software company strives to go through multiple cycles of code releases and bug fixes through development environments to testing and then eventually general release to the masses of Azerothian disciples waiting to storm the new content.  And new exciting content they shall find!!

Upon first entering the game, at the character selection screen, you notice the differences in character models.  The maturity of the graphics, textures, meshes, etc, are incredible compared to existing models in all of World of Warcraft’s expansions right up through Pandaria.  I must say though, Pandaria has some awesome landscapes but the color differences in Warlord’s scenery is more vibrant, the models carry more life like markings (veins …

The Social Asylum Address

Posted by on Jun 12, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Personal Psyche, Wow Posts | 0 comments

A wise man once told me, even the tallest of mountains can be conquered one step at a time.  Is not this true about everything we do in life?  No matter what our goals are, a single step forward progresses us on our path to achieving that goal and gaining the necessary wisdom to excel even further.  One of my favorite motivational speakers, Les Brown, noted that “When life knocks you down, try to land on your back.  Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reason get you back up.”
Over the course of these past few weeks, I have continued to grow in appreciate for The Social Asylum I am now building with many of you who are probably reading this right now.  I have seen and I am pleased with the progress we are making in becoming one of the better more social channels …

Goal Accomplished: 2k Twitch Followers!

Posted by on Jun 9, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Wow Posts | 0 comments

FRONT Page on Twitch!
With a standing ovation, last night with almost 100+ live viewers watching, I achieved my 2nd goal on my Twitch.tv/Wowprofitz channel of 2,000 followers!  I shared this accomplishment with many virtual friends and loyal viewers who have been with me since the beginning of this crazy journey.  Through all the highs and lows, hills and valleys, we made it to the mountain together and one step at a time, one viewer at a time, we gained enough respect and admiration to achieve 2,000!  I want to make it clear, without ALL of your support, this would not have happened to me and provided me with the pleasure of being considered a good entertainer for you to watch and support.  Thank you!
As you all know, I love gaming and I love being social.  There should not be anything more important to a streamer than first, having fun and …
